    CHICAGO (CBS) — Mayor Lori Lightfoot continues to hammer home the importance of transparency, especially when it comes to police misconduct. But CBS 2 Political Investigator Dana Kozlov has learned Tuesday city lawyers are heading back to court to try to keep hundreds of police misconduct records from being released. It all began with one man’s public records request, which the city ignored, in his fight to clear his name. RELATED: Watch For The Symptoms: Illness Connected To The Coronavirus Strikes Young Children The city then offered him $500,000 to make his records request go away, but there was never a payout. Those police misconduct records remain sealed. “The city’s commitment to transparency over its police accountability systems is not real.  It is fake,” said attorney Jared Kosoglad. Kosoglad represents Charles Green, convicted at age 16 for taking part in a 1985 quadruple murder. In 2009, Green was released from prison after...

    The Deshaun Watson-Texans trade drama has become the story of the NFL in recent weeks, even sharing a stage with Super Bowl 55 as the most impactful event in the league. So it makes sense that everyone would express their opinion on the situation, from the Texans’ complete mismanagement to Watson’s cryptic tweets. Even Brett Favre was asked to share his opinion in a Monday interview with Yahoo! Sports. Favre exhibited an old-school take on Watson’s request to be traded out of Houston. “I’m kind of old school. I think you know, you play, you get paid a ton of money to do a certain job, and just do it, and let the chips fall where they may,” Favre said. “I think we make too much money to voice an opinion, but I’m not saying he’s wrong. I think it’s a different day and time and it’ll be interesting...

    The payroll credit is a loan offered by a bank or a financial institution, the fulfillment of the payments are guaranteed in the salary you receive, in fact they make discounts from your salary. This credit differs from personal credit in that you must have a payroll account and discounts or charges are made directly from deposits in your account. The Condusef suggests that these credits are used responsibly, otherwise they can become a serious problem. So, before requesting it, consider the following: Is the expense you make with what they lend you urgent or can it wait? How much is it going to cost? Can you pay it? Before getting a payroll loan, make sure that you can cover the partial payments. Photo: Pixabay. You need to think about whether you need what you would buy with credit, and if it is the right time to request...
    Houston police have arrested a suspect in connection with a violent attack Monday night against a bar employee who claimed he had asked a customer to wear a face mask while inside the business because of the coronavirus, according to a report. The suspect, whom authorities identified as Patrick Kelly, 32, has been charged with assault and bodily injury, police Chief Art Acevedo wrote in a Twitter message. The bar employee, Josh Vaughan, has worked security at the Grand Prize Bar in the city's Museum District off-and-on for nearly seven years, Houston's FOX 26 reported. On Monday night, the customer appeared to grow frustrated after repeatedly being asked to put a mask on, Vaughan told the station. After the third request, the patron allegedly came out of the restroom, ran toward Vaughan and smashed a whiskey glass on his head, the report said. Vaughan said he began bleeding profusely and had to...
    Ghislaine Maxwell has asked a judge for a secret, closed-door hearing so she can request to be sprung on bail, according to new court filings. The accused Jeffrey Epstein madam wants to keep private the names of proposed cosigners on a potential bail application — prompting her to ask for a sealed “in camera” hearing that would be held in judge’s chambers and away from the public eye. Prosecutors, however, have objected, calling the request over the top. “The Government sees no reason for an entire hearing to be conducted without the opportunity for the public or the victims in this case to observe,” they wrote in a letter to M anhattan federal court Judge Alison Nathan on Wednesday. The prosecutors said the request for a hearing was related to Maxwell’s “anticipated renewed application for bail.” Nathan initially denied bail for the British socialite in the days following her...

    The former GSP Trooper who is facing a felony murder charge appeared in Screven County Superior Court Monday morning for another bond hearing before Judge Gates Peed. Monday’s hearing was the third attempt by attorneys to obtain a bond for Jacob Thompson, who has been in the Screven County jail since August 14.

A pursuit ensued when Lewis fled, leading Thompson to perform a PIT maneuver to end the chase, but when the vehicles came to a stop and Thompson exited his patrol car, he says he heard the engine revving, and believed Lewis was going to use his vehicle to harm him.

    James Harden must enjoy the speculation surrounding him. Following an ESPN report that Harden turned down a two-year extension with Houston — which would’ve made him the first player in NBA history to make $50 million per season — the former MVP posted a brief and cryptic video to social media, in which he takes the cap off a bottle. “No cap” is slang for not lying. Harden is attempting to force Houston to trade him to the Brooklyn Nets, forming a super team with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. But he has little leverage to trigger a deal. The 31-year-old still has multiple years left on his contract with Houston, which has no reason to make a lesser deal with the Nets when the Rockets can acquire better packages with other teams, such as Philadelphia. Thus far, ESPN reports that Houston and Brooklyn have engaged in talks, but...

    We invite you to take a few minutes to read the most relevant articles of the week on marketing, advertising and media matters. They are topics that all marketers must master to start a new week with key insights into the pulse of the industry. El Buen Fin is a few days away from starting and the season’s historical problem seems to have already made its first appearance signed by Elektra. This problem, as anticipated, is related to a price published from the Buen Fin application itself where an LG screen is offered at a much lower price buying from Elektra than is found in other points of sale. The scenario is complex and in the face of a world economy that will be especially hit, Burger King has made a desperate call: it asks its consumers to buy from the competition. From its social networks,...
              FRANKLIN, Tennessee — Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, U.S. Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), U.S. Rep. Mark Green (R-TN-07), and U.S Senate Republican candidate Bill Hagerty urged their supporters to vote Tuesday and to also re-elect U.S. President Donald Trump. They did so Sunday at Franklin’s Liberty Hall inside The Factory, where State Sen. Jack Johnson (R-Franklin) hosted his annual Boots & Jeans, BBQ & Beans event. As The Tennessee Star reported last week, Johnson hosts this event as a fundraiser for his state senate campaign. Hagerty told the hundreds of attendees that Tuesday’s election is a choice between the freedoms we know and love versus the Democrats’ push to impose socialism on America. “Look at the policies they [Democrats] want to bring to bear. Nancy Pelosi wants to give $1,200 checks to illegal immigrants, defund law enforcement to the tune of $600 million and...
    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – In 2016, therapist Dr. Steven Stosny coined the term “election stress disorder” as a growing number of people reported anxiety surrounding the election. Though it’s not diagnosable, Wexford-based therapist Sarah Souri says it seems to be impacting many people again with the election about two weeks away. “Election plus the pandemic, I think have made for a perfect storm this year,” she said. From the debate stage to social media, to the dinner table, emotions related to the election can feel hard to escape. Souri says knowing your limits is key. “Being mindful of what you’re allowing yourself to consume in terms of media, in terms of the conversations you’re having with people,” she said. With any type of stress, Souri recommends focusing on “controlling the controllables.” When it comes to the election, one controllable is making a voting plan. “You absolutely need...

    Earlier this week, we introduced you to @yeetcorygardneragain, a hilarious Instagram page satirizing incumbent Colorado U.S. Senator Cory Gardner, which popped up after its predecessor, @yeetcorygardner, vanished without a clue. Now, the mystery has deepened, albeit in a way that should make fans of both online destinations' ultra-dry, Colorado-specific humor very happy. In the days after our post on the subject was published, the first page reappeared — but for now, @yeetcorygardneragain is being maintained, too, as a backup account ready in case the original site drops from view again. Meanwhile, we managed to connect with the creator of both pages, whom we're not identifying at her request. In all likelihood, @yeetcorygardner was temporarily removed by Instagram after being flagged by Gardner supporters who were the opposite of amused, but in the following email Q&A, she points no fingers. Instead, she reveals how the idea of injecting a little whimsy...
    A judge denied Democratic donor Ed Buck's request to be released on Friday, claiming he posed a danger to the community.  U.S. Magistrate Judge Rozella A. Oliver said that the conditions presented by Buck's attorney were 'insufficient' to ensure that the embattled donor would show at trial, KCAL reports.  Oliver also said that Buck's legal team failed to show how the medical staff at the Metropolitan Detention Center were incapable of handling their client's medical needs, after the defense expressed concern with Buck getting COVID-19.  She added that he did not appear to have any medical conditions that seemed to put him at risk for catching the virus at 66 years of age.    U.S. Magistrate Judge Rozella A.

    Some absentee ballots in Wisconsin are likely already in the mail, and the head of the state’s election commission is telling voters to fill them out and return them as quickly as possible. Wisconsin Election Commission Administrator Meagan Wolfe on Tuesday said it is important that voters don’t wait given the flood of absentee ballots this fall. “We have more absentee ballot requests than in any previous election,” Wolfe said. “ There are over a million absentee ballot requests on file.” Thursday is the deadline for local election managers to get absentee ballots in the mail to voters. Wolfe said many of the ballots are already in the mail, and some voters may get theirs by the end of the week. “The best advice I can give to voters is that if you choose to vote by absentee ballot, make that request as soon as you’re...
    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow opened her interview with the author of a new tell-all book, Melania and Me, by reading a passage about planning the 2016 presidential inauguration, in which President-Elect Donald Trump requested U.S. military tanks and helicopters to celebrate his win and specifically referenced the martial displays of totalitarian North Korea as his standard.

From the book: Back in New York, I attended a meeting with President-Elect Trump in his office. The space was packed boxes, trinkets, and piles of paper. And I thought I...

    Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York City Unlike what some might falsely suggest, under federal law, the states control the elections — and in New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo signed Thursday three new laws that provide voters with greater flexibility on casting their ballots this November — and assurance that they will be counted. Concerns about the impact the COVID-19 pandemic will have on voting prompted state lawmakers to introduce reforms making it easier for voters to request absentee ballots and ensure that they are included in the final vote tallies. After passing the State Legislature weeks ago, on Aug. 20, Cuomo signed into law the legislative package which relaxes absentee ballot rules so voters may request them due to risk of illness; enables voters to request absentee ballots immediately, beginning today; and validates all ballots postmarked up...

    According to a recent report from Hollywood Life, Teresa Giudice fulfilled a Cameo request for a fan asking for advice and called out a woman who cheated on her fiancé.

    The Department of Justice has denied that Roger Stone is being giving special treatment by agreeing to his request to delay the start of his prison sentence. Stone, a former self-proclaimed adviser to President Donald Trump, was convicted last year of witness tampering, obstruction of justice and lying to Congress and was set begin his 40-month sentence at a prison in Georgia on June 30.

    Winona Ryder is recalling a time when Keanu Reeves refused to partake in an alleged request from director Francis Ford Coppola while filming the 1992 movie "Dracula." Ryder, 48, recently explained to The Sunday Times that, at the time, she was doing a scene in which her character was supposed to be crying.
