Sports betting no easy fix for U.S. gaming's most beleaguered industries

Sports betting no easy fix for U.S. gaming's most beleaguered industriesBy Laila Kearney CLEVELAND (Reuters) - Long-struggling U.S. gambling industries hope to cash in on newly legal sports betting, but the growing wave of electronic and mobile gaming choices is considered more likely to change the face of those businesses rather than revive them. “Nobody’s going to be able to tell you there’s a silver bullet to fix racing, but I think there are a lot of things that could be tried,” Douglas Reed, senior associate at Spectrum Gaming Group, said about horse racing, one of the country's most beleaguered wagering industries. The sport has been in decline for several decades in the face of challenges that include expanded gambling options across the United States and an aging fan base.

Chicago police release video of shooting that sparked violent protests

Chicago police release video of shooting that sparked violent protestsChicago police on Sunday released body camera footage of officers shooting dead a black man as he reached for his concealed handgun, hoping to quell two days of violent and peaceful protests that had branded the incident a case of police brutality. The shooting on Saturday triggered violent clashes that night and more peaceful protests on Sunday in the latest in a string of U.S. police killings that have at times sparked nationwide demonstrations. Chicago had its own high-profile case leading to unrest in the 2014 police shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald, who was holding a knife and shot dead as he walked away from police.

Immigrant children, parents reunited faster under new court order

Immigrant children, parents reunited faster under new court orderWhen Yolany Padilla was released from immigration custody in Seattle last week, she assumed she would be quickly reunited with her 6-year-old son, who had been taken from her at the U.S.-Mexico border two months earlier. Fingerprint collection and analysis alone could take 60 days, and there would also be background checks of all the adults with whom she and her son would stay. “It hurt so much to even think it could be 60 days.” That estimate changed abruptly on Thursday night after a federal judge’s order that the government streamline some vetting procedures for reunifying parents and children.

Indictment of Russian officers puts pressure on Trump at Putin summit

Indictment of Russian officers puts pressure on Trump at Putin summitIf U.S. President Donald Trump was inclined to be tentative when raising election meddling with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday, the indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officers with hacking in 2016 has made that approach a much harder sell. A federal grand jury on Friday alleged that officers of Russia's military intelligence agency, the GRU, secretly monitored computers and stole data from the campaign of Trump's former rival, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. The charges put an even greater spotlight on Trump's treatment of Putin, who has denied making efforts to intervene in the U.S. election that Trump, a Republican, unexpectedly won.

The indictment, which alleges a wide-ranging conspiracy involving sophisticated hacking and staged releases of documents, raises the stakes for a summit next week between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Officers of Russia's military intelligence agency, the GRU, covertly monitored computers of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's campaign and Democratic campaign committees, and stole large amounts of data, the indictment said.

U.S. indictments show technical evidence for Russian hacking accusations

U.S. indictments show technical evidence for Russian hacking accusationsBy Joseph Menn SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - U.S. indictments against a dozen Russian intelligence officers on Friday provided detailed technical evidence to back up allegations of Russian hacking and leaking of information to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election. By tracing control of email and social media accounts and a tool for remote internet connections, the 29-page indictment document for the first time showed that the same group of Russians leased servers, targeted Democratic officials with phishing tricks aimed at capturing their online credentials and communicated with Republicans and other distributors of hacked information.

Judge tells U.S. to pay costs of reuniting immigrant families

Judge tells U.S. to pay costs of reuniting immigrant familiesA U.S. judge in California on Friday ordered President Donald Trump's administration to pay the costs of reuniting immigrant parents with children separated from them by officials at the U.S.-Mexican border, rather than forcing the parents to pay. The U.S. government is working to reunite around 2,000 children with their parents, who were detained and separated as part of Trump's "zero tolerance" approach to deter illegal immigration. "It doesn't make any sense for any of the parents who have been separated to pay for anything," U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw, who last month ordered that the children be reunited with their parents by July 26, said at a hearing in San Diego.

The request by the American Civil Liberties Union follows a chaotic week for U.S. immigration officials, who failed to meet a court-ordered deadline on Tuesday for reuniting children under the age of five. The government "must establish a fund to pay for professional mental health counseling, which will be used to treat children who are suffering from severe trauma as a result of their forcible separation from their parents," said the ACLU in court papers filed late Thursday.
