Description

In Chicago, supporters of both Israel and the Palestinians held opposing rallies across the street from each other. Protestors shouted insults at each other throughout the demonstrations.   Four teenagers face murder charges for the killing of University of Southern California graduate student Xinran Ji. The Chinese victim was beaten to death with a baseball bat during the course of a robbery. The suspects could face the death penalty. Finally, a federal appeals court rejects Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriage stating it is a violation of basic constitutional rights. The state government and the state attorney general refused to defend the ban and instead spoke against it in court. The two clerks leading the case are expected to seek a stay of the decision.
