WASHINGTON (AP) — A State Department assistant secretary said Wednesday it's "not acceptable" for any agency employee to conduct government business on a private email server as former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton did.
Baltimore officials asked the U.S. Justice Department to investigate its police department for civil rights violations after the death of a black man from injuries sustained in police custody, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said on Wednesday. The review will look into police practices such as frisks, street stops of suspects and arrests to see if they violate the U.S. Constitution, Rawlings-Blake said at a news conference. The request follows the April 19 death of Freddie Gray, 25, who sustained spinal injuries after being arrested by police. Six officers were charged last week in a case that is the latest in a series of deaths in the United States of unarmed black men involving police officers.
