Grand Jury Deliberations for Breonna Taylor's…

Grand Jury Deliberations for Breonna Taylor's Case to Be Made Public. Kentucky’s Attorney General Daniel Cameron has agreed to release the recording of the grand jury’s deliberations in the case of Breonna Taylor. His decision was spurred on by attorney Kevin M. Glogower, who filed a motion on behalf of an unnamed member of the case's grand jury. According to Glogower, the unnamed juror wants the sealed transcripts released so that the "truth may prevail.". They reportedly came to Glogower in a “state of turmoil,” claiming that Cameron had “misrepresented” their deliberations. In particular, Cameron’s emphasis that the grand jury “agreed” that Sgt. Jon Mattingly and Detective Myles Cosgrove, the two officers who shot Taylor, were justified. These charges are not applicable to the facts before us because our investigation showed — and the grand jury agreed — that Mattingly and Cosgrove were justified in the return of deadly fire after having been fired upon, Kentucky’s Attorney General Daniel Cameron, via 'NYT'. According to Glogower, the grand jury panel was not offered the option of indicting the two officers. This ultimately resulted in none of the three officers being charged with Taylor’s death, a decision that has caused outrage across the nation. It is patently unjust for the jurors to be subjected to the level of accountability the attorney general campaigned for simply because they received a summons to serve their community, Kevin M. Glogower, via NBC News. The unnamed juror has been granted permission to speak about the case and transcripts of the session will be made public

Mars Could Contain Liquid Water, New Evidence…

Mars Could Contain Liquid Water, New Evidence Suggests. The new research was published on Monday in the journal 'Nature Astronomy.'. It suggests an underground "patchwork" of extremely salty lakes near the south pole of Mars exist. . The possibility of an underground saltwater lake on Mars was first put forward based on radar maps captured by a robot orbiter in 2018. . Researchers say that there is a larger lake spanning about 15 miles, as well as several smaller surrounding lakes. We are much more confident now. We did many more observations, and we processed the data completely differently, Elena Pettinelli, Professor of Geophysics Roma Tre University, via NBC News.
