After you went to bed, two Ferguson cops were shot. Two smashed secret agents were busted for a drunken car crash – into White House barriers.
California universities hoped to stamp out anti-semitism, while scientists discovered more new marine species.
Two Ferguson cops were shot
Demonstrations outside Ferguson's police station got ugly last night and two cops were shot. The protests came after a bunch of the city's officials including its police chief quit, after a report confirmed systematic racism in the police force behind the killing of unarmed black teen Michael Brown in August.
Schnockered Secret Service agents faced a hellish hangover
Two undercover agents are under investigation after ploughing their duty car into White House barriers after a night on the lash. It's yet another embarrassing episode for the Secret Service after a guy with a knife vaulted the White House fences and ran into the mansion last year.
California students said no to anti-semitism
Days after Oklahoma students were slammed for racist taunts, students at two California university campuses have officially condemned anti-semitism after two seriously unsavory incidents. Swastikas were painted on a Jewish frat house at Davis and a Jewish candidate for a student post was given a grilling based on her religion.
Thousands of marine species were found
Good news: nearly 1,500 new species of ocean creature were found last year, including whales, dolphins, shrimps and a really nasty type of jellyfish. The earth's oceans are under-explored, say the scientists behind the findings. The bad news? Many new species will become extinct before we find them because of pollution and climate change.
