By MICHAEL KUNZELMAN

BATON ROUGE, La.  — The slayings of two black men in Baton Rouge last week were likely racially motivated, police said Sunday, and a suspect — a 23-year-old white man — was in custody. In both shootings the gunman fired from his car then walked up to the victims as they were lying on the ground and fired again multiple times.

The suspect, Kenneth Gleason, was being held on drug charges and was given a $3,500 bond on

Why feds want to seize Southern California warehouses used by aluminum company

The federal government is seeking to seize warehouses in San Bernardino, Riverside and Orange counties amid allegations that the company that owns them tried to avoid paying about $15 billion in tariffs by disguising the aluminum they imported from China.

The asset-forfeiture complaint was filed Thursday, Sept. 14, by the U.S. Attorney’s Office against Perfectus Aluminum.

The complaint claims that after the government instituted tariffs on aluminum that could be made into finished goods, the company tried to avoid paying the tariffs by making pallets out of the aluminum in China and then importing more than 2 million pallets to the

You may not believe it, but the number of California wildfires has been going down

In a year that is already being called one of the worst ever for wildfires in the western United States , there is another fact that some may find remarkable: For nearly 40 years, the number of wildfires in California has been declining.

California wildfire data reviewed by a USGS research ecologist shows a trend that many may find hard to believe: Since a peak in 1980, there have been fewer and fewer wildfires in California. This is true across the entire state, according to researcher Jon Keeley, who is also a professor at UCLA.

According to his paper, co-authored with

Lawsuit accuses Irvine, LA police of ignoring animal-cruelty laws in connection to Jewish ritual

SANTA ANA – An animal-rights group in a lawsuit filed this week accuses the Irvine Police Department of refusing to enforce animal-cruelty laws to stop the slaughter of chickens during a Jewish holiday ritual.

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday at the federal courthouse in Santa Ana by the San Diego-based Animal Protection and Rescue League, marks the latest effort by animal-rights activists to target the Chabad of Irvine’s annual Kapparot ceremonies.

The lawsuit alleges that the Irvine Police Department, as well as the Los Angeles Police Department, protect the “illegal killing of animals” by not cracking down on the Kapparot ceremonies.

Fake Russian Facebook accounts bought $100,000 in political ads

By VINDU GOEL and SCOTT SHANE

SAN FRANCISCO — Hundreds of fake Facebook accounts and pages apparently operated out of Russia bought $100,000 in political ads on Facebook during the presidential campaign last year, the company disclosed on Wednesday.

The revelations about ads on the social network can only add to the continuing political skirmishing in Washington over Russia’s role in the election. Robert Mueller, the special counsel, and the Senate and House intelligence committees are all investigating the matter, including the possibility that someone with ties to President Trump’s campaign worked with Russia.

Facebook officials said the fake accounts and pages had been connected
