    Protesters in Louisville, Kentucky, marched and rallied peacefully for several hours as of 11:00 p.m. EST on Friday, in what was the third evening of demonstrations held in protest of a grand jury's decision Wednesday not to charge three police officers in the death of Breonna Taylor, who was killed in a police raid in March. What are the details? Early in the evening, the mood appeared tense as some protesters were seen yelling and antagonizing police officers who were on the scene. Much of the footage available was captured by "independent guy on the scene" Brendan Gutenschwager, who reported that media and cameras were welcomed by demonstrators on Friday. One apparent organizer was seen on...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Mayor Bill de Blasio disputes Gov. Andrew Cuomo‘s assessment of police reform in New York City, saying “he doesn’t have his facts straight.” In a radio interview Friday, the mayor accused of the governor of making personal attacks. “The governor should take his personal feelings out of the situation and actually engage and respect the NYPD and the changes that’s made, and respect the fact that this administration from day one has been focused on change and reform,” he told WNYC. On Thursday, Cuomo blasted de Blasio for allegedly dragging his feet in drawing up a plan to redesign the NYPD. “Look, if he wants to make personal attacks, he can do that. But he does...

    Protests in Louisville were less violent Thursday night, calming down significantly from the previous night, during which two Louisville Metropolitan Police Department officers were shot, the Courier Journal reported. Thursday was the second night since the grand jury decision not to charge any officers for killing Breonna Taylor during a raid on her home in March. One former officer, Brett Hankison, was charged with three counts of wanton endangerment, related to his allegedly shooting recklessly into surrounding apartments — not to the fact that Taylor was shot and killed. The Courier Journal reported that 24 people were arrested overnight Thursday, down from 127 the night before. Some of the arrests were for unlawful assembly and failure to disperse, and...
    By Michael Hurley, CBS Boston BOSTON (CBS) — We’re in month seven of full-blown pandemic in the United States, which is something that we all frankly never expected to say or read or even really fathom. Something we also never imagined was that the NFL would somehow be playing football all across the country in the midst of this pandemic, and yet, there it is, filling up our flat screens every Thursday, Sunday and Monday. The reason the NFL aggressively pursued a season in 2020 was obvious: Money. The second most important reason was … checks notes … yup, that was money, too. But if you move your way down the list of the NFL’s reasons to charge full bore into a 2020...

    A Los Angeles police officer on Thursday was arrested for a second time — this time on a felony count — in relation to a January incident in which he is accused of stealing cash from the backpack of an employee at a cannabis grow facility, prosecutors and police said. Officer Luis Mota, 46, was first arrested on suspicion of theft at the grow facility on Jan. 27 as narcotics officers conducted enforcement there. Police said that the employee had alerted an LAPD supervisor that money was missing from her backpack, and that surveillance video pointed to Mota as the culprit. He was charged then with misdemeanor theft. On Thursday, the Los Angeles Police Department said Mota had been...

    Hello, we mustache you a question. The NFL has been home to many iconic facial hair configurtions, but have you ever seen a more glorious lip-warmer in the NFL than Gardner Minshew’s? The Uncle Rico of the National Football League unleashed his facial hair on the world last season, coupling his now-iconic horseshoe mustache with surprising play for the Jags, as a lone bright spot in an otherwise lost season.  But every great hero has a great villain, and the NFL’s incumbent bushy-faced braggart, Ryan Fitzpatrick, takes issue with Minshew’s preferred choice of facial hair. The two QBs exchanged barba barbs earlier in the week, making the battle of the facial hair the No. 1 storyline heading into Thursday night’s Dolphins vs. Jaguars...

    (CNN)The pandemic could have been the decisive moment in the fight against climate change -- an opportunity for leaders to bail out the environment and pivot the planet toward a greener future.Instead, CNN has found that some of the biggest fossil fuel-producing countries are injecting taxpayer money into propping up polluting industries. And exclusive new data shows these decisions are taking the world a step closer to a climate catastrophe."This is the one chance that we have," said professor Niklas Höhne, founding partner at the NewClimate Institute, a climate think tank, and co-author of an upcoming study from the Climate Action Tracker shared with CNN.The research shows that the world is running well behind its already insufficient targets of limiting...
    A pair of social media’s favorite quarterbacks meet in the third “Thursday Night Football” game of the season, as Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Miami Dolphins head to Jacksonville to face Gardner Minshew and the Jaguars at TIAA Bank Field.  Two weeks ago many had the first pick in the 2021 NFL Draft signed, sealed and delivered to Jacksonville. Instead, the Jaguars (1-1) have gone out and shocked Indianapolis in Week 1 and lost a squeaker in Week 2 to Tennessee. Minshew has thrown for six touchdowns and ranks third in the league in completion percentage above expectation. Even the run defense has held its own, limiting Derrick Henry to just 84 yards on 25 carries and holding the Colts...
    Of the teams playing on “Thursday Night Football” tonight, neither is expected to be a contender in the AFC or even in its own division. But the fact that it’s only Week 3 means both the Dolphins and the Jaguars are, at least internally, preserving hopes of reaching their goals in 2020 despite 0-2 and 1-1 starts, respectively. This is an all-Florida matchup between the team that has most been connected to the concept of tanking over the last couple years and the team many believe are doing the same beginning this season. Yet Jacksonville won its first game and nearly beat Tennessee last week, reaffirming that Jaguars players and coaches aim to win every game regardless of the organization’s long-term...
    (CNN)In a year that seemingly keeps on giving, perhaps it's not so surprising that NASA's newly discovered asteroid called 2020 SW will give earth a not so socially distant pass.Discovered only on September 18, in Tucson, Arizona, the school bus-sized asteroid which is estimated to be somewhere between 15-30 feet in diameter is expected to graze past our planets surface with about 13,000 miles of breathing room.

    The idea has merit: Take teams you don’t expect to be in the playoff chase and stick them in prime time early in the schedule. That’s what the NFL has done by placing Cincinnati at Cleveland last week, and this Thursday night, it’s Jacksonville hosting Miami. Denver and the Jets get the honor next week before some of the big boys take the stage. That doesn’t mean Dolphins-Jaguars will be a total dud. Miami has been somewhat competitive in division losses to New England and Buffalo. Jacksonville, led by the dynamic play of quarterback Gardner Minshew, has been a whole lot more than that, stunning Indianapolis and falling at Tennessee late in the game. Jacksonville, ranked 19th in the AP...

    This is likely a rumor Odell Beckham Jr. has never heard about himself. Even before pulling down a team-high four catches for 74 yards and one touchdown in the Browns’ win over the Bengals Thursday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Cleveland management has no plans to trade the wide receiver, with one source telling the website the rumors are “totally not true.” Speculation surrounding the possibility of the Browns shopping Beckham, 27, began to pile up following their blowout loss to the Ravens in the season opener when former WFAN host Mike Francesa floated a trade rumor on Twitter. But just as the Browns vehemently denied during the offseason that Beckham was up for discussion, ESPN confirms that the organization...

    So much about baseball has changed since March 12, when the first spring training was shut down due to the coronavirus. Empty ballparks. Seven-inning doubleheaders. Designated hitters in the AL and NL. Alternate sites replaced minor league games. Teams forced to quarantine after players tested positive for COVID-19. Bubbles in front of postseason bubbles. The World Series will be played at a neutral site in Texas. Yet through all the changes caused by the pandemic, one issue remains intact: Aaron Judge’s feelings about who the best team in baseball is as the postseason approaches. “I think they are the same as when the season started,’’ Judge said of the Yankees’ expectations, before they swept three games from the Blue Jays...
    Joe Biden indicated during a CNN town hall Thursday that President Trump is responsible for every single coronavirus death. "If the president had done his job... had done his job from the beginning, all the people would still be alive," Biden told the audience in Pennsylvania. "All the people -- I’m not making this up. Just look at the data. Look at the data." Critics on social media were quick to jump on Biden for his comments. MOLLIE HEMINGWAY COMPARES MEDIA TREATMENT OF TRUMP VS.

    ORLAND PARK, Ill. (CBS) — Parents and students continue to put pressure on Gov. JB Pritzker to reopen schools and school sports. Rallies were held Thursday in the northwest and southwest suburbs, including Orland Park. As CBS 2 Investigator Megan Hickey reported, parents said the status quo – rooted in precautions for COVID-19, is doing more harm than good. Sources said the discussions were continuing Thursday night, and that the Governor’s office is at least reviewing these requests to return fall sports in Illinois. Meanwhile, there was another night of rallies, and at least right now no end in sight. “If you’re playing it correctly, there is no contact whatsoever,” said St. Lawrence High School freshman volleyball player Ella...
    EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings placed starting right guard Pat Elflein on injured reserve on Thursday, meaning the fourth-year player will miss at least three games. The Vikings did not disclose the injury for Elflein, who has not appeared on the injury report this season. NFL Network reported that Elflein hurt his thumb in practice on Thursday. The Vikings play at Indianapolis on Sunday. Elflein is in his first season at right guard, after playing left guard last year and center his first two seasons. With Dakota Dozier starting at left guard, the backup options for Elflein are especially inexperienced: Dru Samia and rookie Ezra Cleveland. Aviante Collins and rookie Kyle Hinton are the guards on the practice...
    The Los Angeles Lakers star took notice of how special an NFL quarterback Joe Burrow can become. When you’re a first-overall pick in any professional sport, all eyes are going to be on you. Perhaps no NFL Draft prospect entered with more hype than Joe Burrow, especially following his historic season as the starting quarterback for the LSU Tigers. Burrow’s NFL debut with the Cincinnati Bengals was hindered by an ill-timed cramp from kicker Randy Bullock. But, Burrow had the chance to open some eyes in primetime on Thursday against the Cleveland Browns. And did he ever. After throwing his first-career touchdown pass to tight end CJ Uzomah in the second quarter, Burrow received hefty praise from Los Angeles Lakers...

    Myles Garrett will never live down his fight with Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph on November 14, 2019, and more specifically, his decision to swing a helmet at Rudolph in a moment of rage. His NFL legacy is in some ways already sealed regardless of how many career sacks he accumulates. He’s the player who used an opponent’s helmet as a weapon in primetime football action. When the Browns, who drafted Garrett No. 1 overall in 2017, face the Bengals on Thursday, his infamous attack will almost certainly be recounted by TV broadcasters. After all, the scrap with Pittsburgh took place on “Thursday Night Football” last season. Garrett served a lengthy suspension following the Browns-Steelers brawl. He’s back this year, though, and expected to be entering...

Meadows comments echoed those of President Donald Trump, who told reporters Wednesday that he thinks Redfield made a "mistake" when he told a Senate panel that the vaccine could be rolled out by the middle of next year or later, and accused him of being "confused" and misunderstanding the question.  "I would tell...
    (CNN)In yet another stunning example of President Donald Trump scorning science and rejecting advice from his own health officials, he insisted Wednesday that a coronavirus vaccine could be ready ahead of the November election and minimized the usefulness of wearing masks, directly contradicting Centers for Disease Control and Prevention chief Dr. Robert Redfield. On the same day, Redfield told a Senate subcommittee that he did not expect a vaccine to be "fully available to the American public" until the middle of 2021 at the earliest, and said that wearing masks may be a more effective means of protecting against the virus. But the Trump administration is continuing to promote its own rapid timeline, announcing plans on Wednesday to have the...

    Of the teams playing on “Thursday Night Football” tonight, both enter Week 2 of the 2020 NFL season winless, but one might be a little more desperate than the other.
