President Obama has said he's deeply disturbed by video footage showing the death of a 17-year-old black man who was shot 16 times by policeman in Chicago just over a year ago. The footage was released on Tuesday after prosecutors announced that they had brought murder charges against the white police officer, Jason Van Dyke.

A court in the United States has convicted a man of murder after he shot dead his wife and posted a picture of her body on Facebook. The jury in Florida rejected Derek Medina's argument that he had acted in self-defence. The court was told that he had written on the social media site that he expected to go to prison or be sentenced to death for the killing.

一段视频显示一年前在芝加哥一名17岁的黑人身中16枪死亡,开枪的是一名警察。总统奥巴马表示看到这份视频深感震动。这份视频于周二公布。在此之前,检方宣布他们已经以谋杀罪名起诉白人警察杰森•凡戴克。

美国一家法院判决戴瑞克•曼迪南谋杀罪名成立。戴瑞克•曼迪南在枪杀他的妻子后,在脸谱网站上晒出死者尸体的照片。弗罗里达的陪审团驳回了戴瑞克•曼迪南正当防卫的辩护。法庭获知曼迪南在社交媒体上写道他希望他被判入狱或死刑。
