    Prince Andrew may be selling his £18million ski chalet to protect his assets rather than pay off his sex abuse accuser, US lawyers have said. Earlier this month, sources close to the Duke confirmed that the sale of the property in the exclusive Swiss ski resort of Verbier is 'proceeding' after a mystery buyer agreed to take it off his hands. Andrew was only able to sell the residence, called Chalet Helora, after settling a £6.6million debt to French socialite Isabelle de Rouvre, 74, who sold it to him and Sarah Ferguson in 2014 also for £18million.  The deal led to speculation that he would use the money to pay his legal bills as he faces a lawsuit from Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who claims she was trafficked to have sex with him by paedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein. But Spencer Kuvin, who represented the victims of Epstein, believes the sale could actually be designed to prevent Giuffre from seizing the Duke's assets.

    Former President Donald Trump reappeared during Saturday Night Live's cold open played by impressionist James Austin Johnson who perfectly depicted a Trumpian-style ramble during an appearance on a mocked-up Fox News Channel interview hosted by Laura Ingram, played by Kate McKinnon. 'Talk of the 2024 Republican Primary is already heating up, so let's talk to the svelte, muscular, 230-pound gorilla in the room, Donald Trump,' McKinnon's Ingraham, said introducing him.  'It's wonderful to be here. I'm back, just like Tiger King II.

    With the first half of his Netflix hit’s fourth and final season, showrunner Chris Mundy has initiated Ozark’s endgame, setting the stage for a last-ditch attempt by Marty (Jason Bateman) and Wendy Byrde (Laura Linney) to escape their money-laundering entanglements with the Navarro cartel while keeping their (and their kids’) heads on their shoulders. Achieving that goal won’t be easy, given that the streaming series’ most recent seven episodes mired them in further lethal trouble. Their efforts to solidify their political power via a partnership with Shaw Medical Solutions didn’t go as planned. Their relationship with son Jonah (Skylar Gaertner) took a nosedive, compelling him to work for their rivals. And their necks are still on the line courtesy of Javi Navarro (Alfonso Herrera)—who now controls the family business, and wants his hands figuratively (if not literally) around the Byrdes’ throats—as well as Ruth Langmore (Julia Garner), whose wrath knows no bounds following the murder of both her boyfriend Ben (Tom Pelphrey) on the order of his sister Wendy, and another loved one who was executed right before this bifurcated...
    (CNN)Black holes are best known for shredding stars, devouring light and acting like massive garbage disposals in space. In a twist, astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope have discovered that these energetic celestial objects have a nurturing side, too. Hubble's observation of a dwarf starburst galaxy, called Henize 2-10, revealed a gaseous umbilical cord stretching from a black hole at the center of the galaxy to a stellar nursery where stars are born. A dwarf starburst galaxy is a small galaxy with an intense amount of star formation.Star birth requires a dense cloud of gas and dust. The stream of gas provided by the black hole actually triggered a fireworks show of star birth as it interacted with the cloud, which led to a cluster of forming stars. Read MoreThe galaxy is located 30 million light-years away in the Pyxis constellation. While large galaxies are known to contain a supermassive black hole at their center, galaxies like Henize 2-10 have caused astronomers to debate if the same is possible in smaller-scale cosmic settings.

      Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images A new NBC poll of Republican voters found that 56 percent identify more as supporters of the party rather than former President Donald Trump. Just 38 percent of GOP voters said the reverse, the lowest in the polling history of that question. In an NBC poll of Democratic voters, 40 percent said they’re a supporter of President Joe Biden, a decrease of 5 percentage points from October, when the poll was last taken. The latest poll found 30 percent of Democratic voters support Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt), an increase of 3 percentage points from October. Among registered voters, 34 percent said they “voted for Trump because [they] liked him or his polices,” while 26 percent replied that they “voted for Biden because [they] did not like him or his policies.” Meanwhile, 21 percent said “they voted for Biden because [they] liked him or his policies.” The poll further illustrated Biden’s unpopularity with 43 percent of respondents approving of Biden’s job performance, while 54 percent disapproved. These numbers are similar to October, when 42 percent approved and 54...
    Workers produce heat guns for export at a factory workshop of Zhejiang Prulde Electric Appliance Co Ltd on January 17, 2022, in Jinhua, Zhejiang.Hu Xiaofei | Visual China Group | Getty Images BEIJING — China's factory production faces "rather large" downward pressure for the first quarter, an official with the national Ministry of Industry and Information Technology said Thursday. The industrial economy still hasn't seen a firm recovery, due to the global pandemic, weakening trade growth, lack of consumer demand and other factors, spokesperson Luo Junjie told reporters. "On top of that, recently the coronavirus has spread to many places," Luo said in Mandarin, according to a CNBC translation. "In the first quarter of the year, the industrial economy still faces rather large downward pressure." Since late December and the entrance of the highly transmissible omicron variant into the country, local Chinese authorities have announced more lockdowns and travel restrictions to prevent Covid outbreaks from spreading. These recent lockdowns would only have a short-term and limited impact on supply chains, Tian Yulong, chief engineer and another spokesperson for the Ministry...
    MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly in pole position to sign £67million-rated Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. But they may be dealt a major blow because the Lazio midfielder would rather join Real Madrid. 1Manchester United could make a swoop for Lazio ace Sergej Milinkovic-SavicCredit: Getty According to Il Messaggero, the Serie A side know they need to sell this summer in order to bring new players in.

    American Ambassador to the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe Michael Carpenter said the world was facing a 'crisis in European security' after the final round of talks Thursday Talks to find a diplomatic solution to the worsening situation between Russia and Ukraine are on the brink of collapse after Thursday's meeting as a key US ambassador warned 'the drumbeat of war is sounding loud.'  Secretary of State Antony Blinken hit the airwaves on Thursday morning where he also weighed in on the crisis, claiming the 'jury is still out' on whether Russian President Vladimir Putin's aggressive military buildup on Ukraine's border will end with an invasion. Russia's lightening fast amassment of more than 100,000 troops near eastern Ukraine prompted Western governments to seek a diplomatic solution with bilateral security talks in Geneva on Monday, a NATO-Russia meeting on Wednesday and another at the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) in Vienna on Thursday.  After the final round of negotiations the Kremlin's diplomats told reporters their next step would be briefing Putin on the 'very disappointing' talks, Axios...
    Our distant ancestors had begun hunting by two million years ago — rather than scavenging on the leftovers of carnivores like big cats — a study has found. Researchers from the University of San Diego studied animal bones from Kanjera South, an archaeological site near Lake Victoria in western Kenya. They found traces of butchery marks on gazelle and wildebeest bones in places where they would only been left if humans were the first to get at the carcasses. The remains, the team said, therefore represent some of the oldest strong evidence for hunting among ancient humans. Bones with cut marks have been found that date back to around 3.4 million years ago — but it is unclear whether these marks were left by hominins or other animals.

    TECH giant Microsoft is trying to make the world more woke by rolling out an “inclusiveness” checker in its Word software. Along with the usual spellcheck, its word processing programme now highlights phrases that may offend someone based on gender, age, sexual orientation, ethnicity or even “socioeconomic status”. 3Microsoft is trying to make the world more woke by rolling out an 'inclusiveness' checker in its Word software - and 'Mrs Thatcher' will be replaced by 'Ms Thatcher' 3Microsoft suggests Barry Manilow's Copacabana lyrics will refer to Lola as a 'dancer', 'performer' or 'performing artist' rather than a 'showgirl' It suggests “more inclusive” alternatives — with some hilarious and baffling results.

    MANCHESTER UNITED have offered Denis Zakaria a contract, according to reports. And it is thought the Red Devils would be willing to pay a transfer fee this January rather than wait to land him on a free in the summer. 1Manchester United reportedly want to land Denis Zakaria this monthCredit: Getty Zakaria, 25, is in the final six months of his contract at Borussia Monchengladbach.

    When Barbara F. Walter was part of an advisory panel for the CIA, the political scientist offered insights on the conditions that can lead to civil wars and violent conflicts. And in 2022, Walter believes that those conditions can be found in the United States. Walter, author of the new book “How Civil Wars Start, and How to Stop Them,” discussed her concerns during a Monday, January 11 appearance on MSNBC’s “The ReidOut.” Walter told host Joy Reid that when a major political party is heavily focused on “identity” and “race” rather than “ideology,” that is one of the conditions that can lead to a civil war — and the modern-day Republican Party, according to Walter, is obsessed with White racial grievance and identity politics rather than a traditional conservative agenda. “Here in the United States, we’re in the midst of a grand transition from a white-majority country to a white-minority country,” Walter noted. Many white Americans, of course, aren’t worried about that transition, as they have spent their lives in large urban centers that are racially and ethnically diverse....

    The Georgia Bulldogs thought they had a huge moment early in the National Championship Game against Alabama but the refs overturned it. If the Georgia Bulldogs were going to make a statement in the National Championship Game against Alabama, their defense was going to have to play at an elite level and make splash plays. And on the first drive of the game, it looked as if they’d done just that. Big Jordan Davis got penetration up the middle against the Crimson Tide and got hands on Bryce Young.

    Pope Francis called couples who adopt pets rather than children "selfish." The pope's comments on Wednesday were addressed to a general audience regarding the topics of parenthood and ways to resolve the "demographic winter" of the West. The West is facing a population decline, and people need to have children, according to the pope. HILLARY CLINTON TWEET DOESN'T MAKE 'CENTS' A prime example is the United States, where a 7% drop in the national birth rate has been recorded since the pandemic started, according to UPI. "Today… we see a form of selfishness," the pope said. "We see that some people do not want to have a child. Sometimes they have one, and that's it, but they have dogs and cats that take the place of children." Couples who are unable to have children should seek to adopt and look to the guidance of Joseph, the "foster father" of Jesus, he noted, according to a report. Joseph represents one of the "highest forms of love," according to the holy father. "How...
    Conservative activist Candace Owens is tripling down on her refusal to be vaccinated for the coronavirus, even if her life depends on it. Owens has been in the news of late thanks to her interview with former President Donald Trump, and accompanying attacks on his pro-vaccine stance. But there have been recurring questions about the sincerity of her position. Part of this stems from a photo of Owens that was taken at a UFC event in Madison Square Garden months ago at which, pursuant to New York City law, all attendees age 12 and up were required to show proof of vaccination. Media Matters’ Josh Campbell flagged a segment of Candace in which the eponymous host declared “I am obviously unvaccinated” in response to public skepticism. She then proceeded to outline the full extent of her vaccine opposition: I am not getting this vaccine. Ever! Never going to get it. I don’t care if I’m on my deathbed and they say it can save you, I’m not going to get it. I’m principally now opposed to it, and I do...
    damircudic | E+ | Getty Images The spread of the highly infectious omicron variant is likely to fuel more inflation, as Americans keep shopping instead of spending more outside of the home, according to the National Retail Federation's chief economist Jack Kleinhenz. The major retail trade group's advisor said Wednesday in a news release, however, that he does not expect the latest wave of Covid cases to prompt an economic slowdown or a shutdown of businesses. "Little is certain about omicron's impact on consumer demand, but people who stay at home because of the variant are more likely to spend their money on retail goods rather than services like dining out or in-person entertainment," he said in the news release. "That would put further pressure on inflation since supply chains are already overloaded across the globe." He said that "each successive variant has slowed down the economy but that the degree of slowdown has been less." And, he added, consumers may have more confidence to spend because of being fully vaccinated or hearing about milder cases from the variant. Covid...
    On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) wondered how the federal government can purchase 500 million at-home coronavirus tests when there are shortages of the tests and that if the tests were available “they’d be on the store shelves right now rather than waiting somewhere for the federal government to buy 500 million of those tests.” After discussing his letter inquiring where money Congress allocated for testing went, Blunt said, “I think my other question would be, if the federal government thinks they can buy 500 million at-home tests by the end of this month, where are those tests now? You don’t have to look very hard to go to a drugstore and find out that they’re out of those tests. You’d think if they were available, they’d be on the store shelves right now rather than waiting somewhere for the federal government to buy 500 million of those tests.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
    BOSTON (CBS) — In the midst of a surprisingly difficult game against the Jets, Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown checked himself out of action … in a rather unique way. Late in the third quarter, with the Bucs trailing 24-10, Brown removed all of his clothing on his upper body and then removed himself from the field. On the way off the field, he gestured to the Jets fans in attendance. It was a rather shocking sight.

    Former CBS News anchorman Dan Rather was reminded of his past Wednesday night, receiving an onslaught of criticism after citing “truth” when mocking the popular phrase, “Let’s Go, Brandon.” Rather, who was fired from his post as the anchorman in the early 2000s after infamously running a hit piece on former President George W. Bush which was later revealed to contain forged documents — received backlash on social media when he tweeted, “#LetsGoBrandonReallyMeans ‘You can’t handle the truth.’” The widely reported phrase “Let’s go, Brandon,” went viral across the country in October after an NBC Sports reporter falsely claimed during a live television interview that a crowd of NASCAR fans was chanting “Let’s Go, Brandon” to support the winning driver, Brandon Brown. However, the crowd was clearly chanting “F*ck Joe Biden!” #LetsGoBrandonReallyMeans “You can’t handle the truth.” — Dan Rather (@DanRather) December 30, 2021 As Rather received criticism, one person reminded him, “aren’t you the “journalist” who presented unauthenticated documents in a news report on President George W. Bush’s Vietnam War-era service in the National Guard, and was abruptly fired for it.” Speaking of not being able to...
    He's the comedian who eviscerated ‘woke’ culture with his daring jokes about subjects such as transgender and Aids. Yet there’s one word that’s always seemed taboo to Ricky Gervais — marriage. Now, however, he could be planning to propose to the novelist Jane Fallon in 2022, marking the 40th anniversary of their relationship. Gervais, 60, admits that it’s money rather than love that is pushing him towards the altar, though. Asked why he never married Fallon, 61, he initially responds: ‘What’s the point? We share everything anyway.’ But when it’s suggested that if one of them dies, the other could end up with a huge tax bill for their share of the pair’s house, Gervais says: ‘That’s a good practical reason to do it. That’s what we will… would do.’ Gervais, 60, admits that it’s money rather than love that is pushing him towards the altar, though. Asked why he never married Fallon, 61, he initially responds: ‘What’s the point? We share everything anyway.’ Financial matters are rather pressing for Gervais, who lives in an £11 million North London mansion...
    After attempting to dunk on the "Let’s Go Brandon" fans, disgraced CBS anchor Dan Rather faced a dunking of his own. Late Wednesday night, Rather tweeted out his take on the popular "Let’s Go Brandon" phrase that has been used as a rebuff against President Biden.  WSJ EDITORIAL MOCKS AUTO MANUFACTURERS GETTING ‘DOUBLE-CROSSED’ BY BIDEN ADMIN: ‘HARD NOT TO GET A CHUCKLE’  NEW YORK, NEW YORK - NOVEMBER 05: (EXCLUSIVE COVERAGE) Dan Rather at SiriusXM Studios on November 05, 2019 in New York City.

The quote came as a form of irony for some Twitter users as Rather previously stepped down from his position as a CBS anchor after airing a story that contained allegedly forged documents to question President Bush's service in the National Guard. Several people called out his take based on Rather’s own relationship with "the truth."

    Dr. Nicole Saphier, a radiologist and director of breast imaging at Memorial Sloan Kettering Monmouth, is calling on the CDC and Biden administration to update its public health guidance with a more targeted approach A top medical expert is going after President Joe Biden for his 'mixed messaging' on masks nearly two years into the coronavirus pandemic. Dr. Nicole Saphier, a radiologist and director of breast imaging at Memorial Sloan Kettering Monmouth, urged the president to update public health guidance 'based on science' rather than 'optics.' 'The messaging around the utilization of face masks has been muddied since the beginning of the pandemic,' Saphier told DailyMail.com. 'Now, President Biden is sending mixed messaging when he is wearing a mask outside alone with his wife while walking his dog yet takes it off when he goes indoor to a retail store surrounded by people.' The president and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden raised eyebrows on Tuesday evening when photos emerged of them with their new German Shepherd puppy, Commander, playing on the beach while wearing masks. Both the Bidens are fully vaccinated...
    NEWCASTLE legend Nikos Dabizas has advised his former club to target Premier League players with limited game time during the January transfer window. The Magpies have found themselves in an intense relegation battle despite their recent £300million Saudi-led takeover as they have lost 10 and won just one out of 19 league matches. 4Nikos Dabizas has advised Newcastle to target forgotten Premier League players in JanuaryCredit: Getty 4Nikos Dabizas spent five years at Newcastle ever since his arrival in 1998 from OlympiacosCredit: Getty The Toon are desperate for significant additions that will boost their hopes of survival with various forgotten men linked as targets, such as Tottenham's Dele Alli, Arsenal's Alexandre Lacazette as well as Manchester United's Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial. And Dabizas, who spent five years at St James' Park ever since his arrival from Olympiacos in 1998, claims the new owners could give "high-level players" a new lease on life. But the former defender insists Newcastle should approach the January market with caution so that they find the suitable candidates that can meet the club's demands instead...
    China is developing brain control weapons that could be used to paralyze and control opponents instead of killing them, the US has alleged. America has sanctioned China's Academy of Military Medical Sciences and 11 affiliated research institutes for using 'biotechnology' to support the armed forces including 'purported brain-control weaponry'. The Commerce Department, which blacklisted the Chinese institutes, did not go into detail about the weapons - but a separate tranche of military documents penned in 2019 gives hints at what Beijing is trying to achieve. Instead of 'destroying bodies', China should focus on 'paralyzing and controlling the opponent' by 'attacking the enemy's will to resist', the report says. The US has sanctioned China's Academy of Military and Medical Sciences (pictured) and 11 associated institutes for allegedly developing 'brain control weponary' The Commerce Department sanctioned the research institutes in a memo last week, and the 2019 documents were obtained and translated by the Washington Times.

    Far-left news and entertainment website BuzzFeed published an article just before Christmas bearing the racist headline “Deplatform White Parents.” The article is a long rant against two major pushbacks against the woke agenda, one from Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling against transgender activists, and the campaign against the racist doctrine of critical race theory (CRT) in the United States. BuzzFeed HQ in New York City (Drew Angerer/Getty) Buzzfeed CEO Jonah Peretti poses for a portrait at Buzzfeed’s New York Headquarters on December 14, 2018 in New York City. (Photo by Nicholas Hunt/Getty Images) The author, Alessa Dominguez, complains that Rowling’s ideas — such as the statement that only women can menstruate — are merely characterized by the media as “controversial,” rather than condemned in stronger terms. A recent poll by Rasmussen found that an overwhelming, bipartisan majority of Americans — 75 percent — agreed with Rowling’s statement of basic scientific fact. Dominguez also complains that the media did not do enough to discredit the campaign against race radicalism in schools: As the November elections neared, news stories about suburban or small-town parents battling...
    The "Bomb Dudes" jumped at the opportunity and carted the Tesla out to an old quarry in Jaala, a remote village two hours northeast of Helsinki. There, they strapped it with 66 pounds of high-powered explosives and set up cameras to capture the blast in slow motion. Just before the detonation, a dummy with Tesla CEO Elon Musk's face was flown in on a helicopter to operate the vehicle as it met its fate. Then the crew retreated to a blast shelter, Katainen pressed the button, and the car was no more. A short pause was followed by a massive flash-bang as a charge ran along the detonation cord and the dynamite sticks erupted in fire.What else?Tesla's standard warranty for a Model S covers eight years or 150,000 miles, but Business Insider noted that it "may be voided if the battery is opened or serviced by anyone not authorized by Tesla" and that it doesn't cover "damage resulting from intentional actions," such as modifications. In Katainen's case, the exorbitant cost of a battery replacement effectively forced him to give up...
    We are in the midst of a crisis with the coronavirus. We need to lead the way with science \u2014 not Donald Trump\u2019s record of hysteria, xenophobia, and fear-mongering. He is the worst possible person to lead our country through a global health emergency. — Joe Biden (@Joe Biden) 1580594460 After Biden imposed his own travel ban and was confronted with this quote, he claimed, rather implausibly, that this referred to Trump's response to the Ebola virus crisis in 2014. Biden would later reverse himself on the campaign trail, saying, "Travel restrictions, when supported by science, advocated by public health officials, and backed by a full strategy can be warranted. Travel restrictions can buy time; but here, the time they bought for preparation was squandered when Trump used it to downplay, rather than ready the country for, the disease." When Biden announced his own travel ban on the eight African countries, this move was likewise criticized by some health experts who declared that it would be ineffective.
    Left-wing Democrats currently furious at West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin for effectively killing President Biden's "Build Back Better" socioeconomic overhaul legislation have been making demands as if they want a king and not a president, Jesse Watters said Tuesday on "The Five." In a tweet earlier in the day, a frustrated New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called on Biden to "lean on his executive authority now – he has been delaying and underutilizing it so far." Host Dagen McDowell told Watters that people like the Bronx Democrat would be conversely apoplectic if a Republican like Donald Trump were to try to force his entire agenda through by executive fiat, and "whinge and screech about the ruination of democracy."

(Photo by Caroline Brehman/CQ-Roll Call, Inc via Getty Images) "Let's make him King," Watters remarked of the far-left's take on how Biden should now behave. ‘We will build him a throne, put a crown on his head. We’ll just have a monarchy. The Squad can go home – the power of the purse we can give to...
    LONDON (AP) — FIFA is making a financial pitch to win support for biennial World Cups. On the day it hoped to hold a vote for the overhaul of the game — before it was abandoned — FIFA claimed Monday that revenue would jump by $4.4 billion to $11.4 billion over four years, according to parts of a presentation seen by The Associated Press. FIFA President Gianni Infantino has faced opposition from the leaders of the European and South American confederations as well as the International Olympic Committee. But he has pushed ahead with trying to convince the 211 member associations of the merits of doubling the frequency of men’s and women’s World Cups, increasing the status of FIFA and diminishing the window for other major sports events to dominate. FIFA commissioned market research firm Nielsen and the Open Economics organization to undertake research to show the game could be wealthier by playing its flagship events more often. It was presented in a virtual meeting hosted by Infantino from the Qatari capital of Doha. FIFA is touting that a macroeconomics...
    Gov. Polis: Unvaccinated People ‘Are Often Victims Of Misinformation’ www.youtube.com Later in the interview, Todd asked Polis what he would tell Biden if the president called and asked for advice ahead of his national address on the Omicron variant. Polis responded that he would instruct Biden to stop talking about a COVID-19 vaccine "booster" and instead focus on the economy and the COVID vaccine as a three-dose vaccine. "I would say, 'Stop talking about the vaccine as a booster; [talk] about it as three doses that are needed for effective prevention.' People who’ve gotten those three doses in our Colorado data, which is similar to the national data, are 47 times less likely to die than people that are unvaccinated. It essentially negates the risk. Nothing is risk-free in life," Polis explained. "I’d also say, we need to focus on prices, increases in prices and costs that people across the country are facing. People are frustrated their Thanksgiving turkey cost 50% more, gas is $3.80 a gallon. Let’s show some relief," Polis added. "In Colorado, it’s...

He has called out McGregor several times before, but it would not stop him from visiting John Kavanagh's Straight Blast Gym in Dublin. Kavanagh told The Mirror: "If Jake walked through the doors I'd tell him to sign up, pay his fees and get on the mat. "He would be very welcome here, I'd love him to come by and train here, I've heard he's got a great energy, he's a great character."

    A pile of food is seen after the owners of the Buya restaurant had to discard items from the restaurant's kitchen after having to close the establishment on July 10, 2020, in Miami, Florida. Jeff Grosser, a co-owner, said they have had to throw out about $8,000 worth of food and lay off 22 employees due to closure orders. by Kinko Kiema This story was originally published at Prism. More than 38 million people experience hunger or food insecurity in the U.S., yet one-third of all food produced for consumption goes to waste. In the absence of government support that fully addresses the food needs of Black, Indigenous, and other people of color (BIPOC), marginalized communities have had to create their own solutions and systems, whether that involves partnering with longstanding nonprofits or building new mutual aid projects and organizations. While these initiatives attempt to fill the gaps in the U.S. food system, the larger institutional problems of inequitable distribution and accessibility, false narratives around “food scarcity,” and a mindset that values profits over people remain considerable obstacles. And the onset of COVID-19...
    A Taser expert testifying for the prosecution in Kim Potter's trial has told jurors in the that, 'mistakes happen' in policing and described the former cop as 'peaceful and law-abiding.' Brooklyn Center Police Department Sgt Mike Peterson was giving testimony at the start of day six in the high-profile trial as defense attorney Paul Engh stepped up to cross examine the witness who began his testimony yesterday. On Tuesday jurors in Minneapolis's Hennepin County District Court heard about BCPD police department's taser training at such length under direct examination by Assistant Attorney General Matthew Frank, that Judge Regina Chu suggested that flagging jurors stand and stretch their legs. Today, Peterson became the third state witness to bolster the defense's case that Potter's use of force was justified and that her shooting of Daunte Wright, 20, was a terrible mistake rather than a criminal act.  Brooklyn Center Police Department Sgt Mike Peterson was called to testify by the prosecution on the sixth day of Kim Potter's trial Wednesday Peterson, BCPD's taser training officer, gave evidence bolstering the defense's case that Potter's...
