LAPD Shooting of Reggie Doucet Reginald Doucet, who played football at El Comino College and Middle Tennessee State, was shot to death Friday morning near his home on the west side of Los Angeles. The LAPD had been called because the Playa Vista resident was naked and disruptive. Two officers talked him into putting on shorts, but he allegedly became combative and tried to seize their weapons. One officer shot twice and Doucet died at a nearby hospital. The LAPD says the cops were " fighting for their lives ," but civil rights activist Earl Ofari Hutchinson is not satisfied with that explanation.
Third Day of Protest after Police Kill Manuel Jamines Chief Charlie Beck and other officials planned to attend a community meeting tonight in Westlake, the MacArthur Park neighborhood where an officer shot and killed Manuel Jamines on Sunday after they say he threatened them with a knife.

Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
What happens when America retreats from the world? Is President Trump taking his "America First" agenda to extremes, withdrawing the country from the international stage on trade and climate change, distancing America from its traditional allies across the Atlantic and even threatening to physically isolate the country through the building of a wall along its southern border? León Krauze guest hosts.
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
Trump plays scolder-in-chief with NATO allies At the opening of NATO’s dramatic new headquarters in Brussels today, President Trump acknowledged that Article 5 — promising that “an attack on one nation is an attack on all” -- has only been invoked one time: in the aftermath of September 11. But the President failed to provide what 27 other Alliance members have been waiting for: a re-commitment by America’s new leader to Article 5. Instead, they got a scolding.
