Pam Bondi: Prosecutor likely to seek death penalty against Nikolas Cruz, shooting suspect

The Washingon Times + 620 other

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said Friday that prosecutors will likely seek the death penalty against Nikolas Cruz, the 19-year-old shooting suspect in the Florida high school case. “Anyone who, in general is cold, calculated, premeditated, something that is well thought out, something that is planned, something that is organized in advance, those all weigh very heavily,” Ms. Bondi said on Fox News. She added that his mental state during the crime, and overall mental health, will also likely be a factor in the state’s case. She could not speak specifically to the case since she is not prosecuting the shooting personally. Seventeen people died after a former student opened fire on Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Wednesday. Mr. Cruz has been charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder. He had a social media presence that showed his interest in weapons and violence, and also reportedly had a history of mental health problems. Copyright © 2018 The Washington Times, LLC.

The New York Times + 3 other

SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea has 22 athletes competing in the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, a South Korean town only 50 miles from its border. Can its people watch them and other Olympic Games on television? Technically, yes, because North Korea has free access to Olympic broadcasts. But its isolated people are unlikely to watch any broadcasts from Pyeongchang, said officials and North Korean defectors in the South. As of Friday, North Korea’s state-run television had broadcast none of the Games — a stark contrast to its glorifying coverage of Kim Yo-jong, who visited the South last week…

The scope and severity of any trade action will ultimately be determined by President Trump, who has broad authority to decide wheth…

News Analysis: In Netanyahu’s Israel, the Divisiveness Is Now All About Him

The New York Times + 4 other

JERUSALEM — In a trio of new polls, Israelis have declared what they think of the bribery case against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and the answer is roughly the same as what they think of Mr. Netanyahu himself: About half think he should step aside. His right-wing supporters overwhelmingly think he should stay. Mr. Netanyahu’s Israel is as polarized as it has been in generations, and under his lengthy tenure, the national conversation has become steadily more toxic. Now, as the prime minister awaits a possible criminal indictment, his efforts to cling to power could pose even greater st…
