Deputy testifies about taking crash photos

Warning: This story contains descriptions that some readers may find disturbing.LOS ANGELES – The Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy who took close-up photos of dead bodies from the helicopter crash that killed NBA legend Kobe Bryant testified in federal court here Friday that he “didn't do anything wrong” and was simply obeying an order to take photographs of the scene of the accident that day.The deputy, Douglas Johnson, said another sheriff's deputy at his command post, Raul Versales, told him to do so. He said he took about 25 photos, including those of a contorted torso and a “close-up of a shin and a foot that had Black skin tone.”But the truthfulness of both of those statements was cast into doubt in court Friday under questioning by attorneys for Vanessa Bryant, Kobe's widow, ...

Lynx honor legendary center Sylvia Fowles after her final regular season home game

Friday night's meeting between the Minnesota Lynx and Seattle Storm wasn't much of a game, but despite the Storm leading by double digits nearly the entire way en route to a 96-69 win, not a single person inside Target Center left early. The result was important, especially with the Lynx in a tight playoff race, but it didn't mean anywhere near as much as the post-game celebration of Sylvia Fowles. A league and franchise legend, Fowles announced back in February that this would be her final season in the WNBA, and Friday night was her final regular season home game in Minneapolis. Depending on what happens on the final day of the season, it may have been the last time she will ever take the court in the city. Prior...

Mets can’t find the final blow and lose to the Phillies, 2-1

Earlier this week, Mets' Hall of Famer and current team broadcaster Keith Hernandez made some hay when he said he “hates doing Phillies games” because of what I considered to be Philadelphia's bad brand of baseball.On Friday night, as Hernandez was off in St. Louis celebrating the 40th anniversary of his championship with the Cardinals, the Mets and Phillies turned in a game straight out of Hernandez's era.The 2-1 win for the Phillies was all about pitching, defense, small ball, and ironically, the battle of fundamentals. Tied at one after the first two frames, both teams fired blanks until the tenth, when Hernandez's dreaded “bad fundies” reared their ugly head, but this time for the Mets. One inning after getting nailed at home by Phillies' left fielder Matt Vierling, Starling Marte...

Never Have I Ever …had a breakdown Season 3 Episode 6 Editor’s Rating 4 stars **** Photo: Lara Solanki/Netflix As much as I love the John McEnroe narration (it doesn’t get old, even three seasons in!), it’s always fun when NHIE switches things up, and that’s what they did in this episode — but with a familiar voice. That’s right, we’ve got another Ben-centric episode, so Andy Samberg is back as our buoyant, eternally boyish guide. These seasonal one-off episodes have become essential in understanding the...
