April 6 (Reuters) - A Minneapolis police officer will not face criminal charges for fatally shooting a 22-year-old Black man during a no-knock raid on an apartment in February, state and local prosecutors said on Wednesday.
Even though the dead man, Amir Locke, was a victim, there was insufficient evidence to bring charges against Mark Hanneman, the member of the Minneapolis SWAT team who fired the shot, according to a statement from Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and Hennepin County Attorney Michael Freeman.
The state also lacked evidence to prove criminal wrongdoing by any of the officers involved in the planning and execution of the Feb. 2 raid, it said.
The killing, one in a nationwide string of incidents that has prompted outrage over law enforcement's treatment of racial minorities, highlighted the potential for violent interactions when no-knock warrants are issued.
Ellison, a former U.S. congressman, called on lawmakers at the local and national levels to consider whether to ban no-knock warrants because of the inherent risks.

In a potential breakthrough for regenerative medicine, scientists have created the first-ever living robots that can reproduce.
The millimetre-sized living machines, called Xenobots 3.0, are neither traditional robots nor a species of animal, but living, programmable organisms.
Made from frog cells, the computer-designed organisms, created by a US team, gather single cells inside a Pac-Man-shaped 'mouth' and release 'babies' that look and move like their parents.

Xenobots 3.0 can gather hundreds of single cells, compress them and assemble them into 'babies' released from their Pac-Man-shaped mouths
Xenobots are neither a traditional robot nor a known species of animal, but a living, programmable organism.
They are made out of adapted stem cells from Xenopus laevis, an African species of frog.
Their shape has been designed by a computer to be able to replicate over multiple generations.
No animal or plant known to science replicates in this way.
Xenobots will help developed computer-designed organisms for intelligent drug delivery.
Xenobots are the work of biologists and computer scientists at Tufts University and the University of Vermont (UVM), who have detailed their creation in a new study.
Xenobots 3.0 follow the original Xenobots, reported in 2020 as the first living robots, and Xenobots 2.0, which can self-propel using hair-like 'legs' called cilia and have the ability to keep memories.
'We found Xenobots that walk. We found Xenobots that swim. And now, in this study, we've found Xenobots that kinematically replicate,' said study author Joshua Bongard, a computer scientist and robotics expert at the University of Vermont.
'We've discovered that there is this previously unknown space within organisms, or living systems, and it's a vast space.'
Xenobots will help develop computer-designed organisms for intelligent drug delivery, according to the team.
'If we knew how to tell collections of cells to do what we wanted them to do, ultimately, that's regenerative medicine – that's the solution to traumatic injury, birth defects, cancer, and aging,' said Michael Levin at Tufts University.
'All of these different problems are here because we don't know how to predict and control what groups of cells are going to build. Xenobots are a new platform for teaching us.'

Queenslanders who received fines for breaking Covid-19 rules risk having their homes seized and bank accounts frozen in a government crackdown to collect $5.2 million in repayments.
The State Penalties Enforcement Register is expected to collect 3,046 unpaid fines from the pandemic on behalf of Queensland Health.
More than 2,755 fines were from individuals and businesses accused of breaking Covid-19 restrictions and the rest either still under investigation or pending payment.
About 56.4 per cent of fines have already been paid in full or are being paid off on a payment plan.
SPER said enforcement for people who failed to pay their fines 'may include garnishing bank accounts or wages, registering charges over property, or suspending driver licences', according to the Brisbane Times.
The drastic measures would be used to collect 18.4 per cent of outstanding fines, worth a total of $1 million.
Queensland Health also called on SPER to recover more than 2,045 overdue hotel quarantine bills which have racked up a state debt of $5.7 million.

'Queenslanders rightly expect travellers will pay for their hotel quarantine stays and not leave taxpayers to foot the bill,' Queensland Health said.
The commission debt collectors will make from recovering the unpaid fines is not yet known.
Before Queensland required upfront payment for hotel quarantine stays, 44,350 invoices were issued by October 8 with 10.8 per cent of bills outstanding.
Those unable to foot the bill can apply for a waiver but others will be referred to debt collectors.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – As of 7 p.m. ET on Monday, September 27, 2021, more than 5,200 doctors and scientists have signed the “The Physicians Declaration,” condemning policymakers for authoritarian approaches of forcing a “one-size-fits-all” COVID treatment strategy which is resulting in “needless illness and death.”
An international alliance of physicians and medical scientists met in Rome, Italy on September 12 - 14 for a three-day Global COVID Summit to speak “truth to power about COVID pandemic research and treatment.” The summit presented an opportunity for the medical professionals to compare studies and assess the efficacy of the various treatments for the Coronavirus that have been developed in hospitals, doctors’ offices and research labs throughout the world.
However, many of these medical professionals have experienced career threats, character assassination, censorship of research papers, clinical trials and patient observations, their professional history and accomplishments altered or omitted in academic and mainstream media because of them providing life-saving treatments for COVID patients.
Dr. Robert Malone, who discovered in-vitro and in-vivo RNA transfection and invented mRNA vaccines while he was at the Salk Institute in 1988, read the Declaration at the summit.
“The Physicians Declaration” states:
“We the physicians of the world, united and loyal to the Hippocratic Oath, recognizing the profession of medicine as we know it is at a crossroad, are compelled to declare the following;
WHEREAS, it is our utmost responsibility and duty to uphold and restore the dignity, integrity, art and science of medicine;
WHEREAS, there is an unprecedented assault on our ability to care for our patients;
WHEREAS, public policy makers have chosen to force a “one size fits all” treatment strategy, resulting in needless illness and death, rather than upholding fundamental concepts of the individualized, personalized approach to patient care which is proven to be safe and more effective;
WHEREAS, physicians and other health care providers working on the front lines, utilizing their knowledge of epidemiology, pathophysiology and pharmacology, are often first to identify new, potentially life saving treatments;
WHEREAS, physicians are increasingly being discouraged from engaging in open professional discourse and the exchange of ideas about new and emerging diseases, not only endangering the essence of the medical profession, but more importantly, more tragically, the lives of our patients;
WHEREAS, thousands of physicians are being prevented from providing treatment to their patients, as a result of barriers put up by pharmacies, hospitals, and public health agencies, rendering the vast majority of healthcare providers helpless to protect their patients in the face of disease. Physicians are now advising their patients to simply go home (allowing the virus to replicate) and return when their disease worsens, resulting in hundreds of thousands of unnecessary patient deaths, due to failure-to-treat;
WHEREAS, this is not medicine. This is not care. These policies may actually constitute crimes against humanity.
NOW THEREFORE, IT IS:
RESOLVED, that the physician-patient relationship must be restored. The very heart of medicine is this relationship, which allows physicians to best understand their patients and their illnesses, to formulate treatments that give the best chance for success, while the patient is an active participant in their care.
RESOLVED, that the political intrusion into the practice of medicine and the physician/patient relationship must end. Physicians, and all health care providers, must be free to practice the art and science of medicine without fear of retribution, censorship, slander, or disciplinary action, including possible loss of licensure and hospital privileges, loss of insurance contracts and interference from government entities and organizations – which further prevent us from caring for patients in need. More than ever, the right and ability to exchange objective scientific findings, which further our understanding of disease, must be protected.
RESOLVED, that physicians must defend their right to prescribe treatment, observing the tenet FIRST, DO NO HARM. Physicians shall not be restricted from prescribing safe and effective treatments. These restrictions continue to cause unnecessary sickness and death. The rights of patients, after being fully informed about the risks and benefits of each option, must be restored to receive those treatments.
RESOLVED, that we invite physicians of the world and all health care providers to join us in this noble cause as we endeavor to restore trust, integrity and professionalism to the practice of medicine.
RESOLVED, that we invite the scientists of the world, who are skilled in biomedical research and uphold the highest ethical and moral standards, to insist on their ability to conduct and publish objective, empirical research without fear of reprisal upon their careers, reputations and livelihoods.
RESOLVED, that we invite patients, who believe in the importance of the physician-patient relationship and the ability to be active participants in their care, to demand access to science-based medical care.”
Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver said, “These medical professionals have been censored and threatened for simply upholding the Hippocratic Oath to ‘do no harm.’ Throughout history, many breakthrough discoveries that have now become accepted science were initially censored. It’s past time to end medical censorship and allow doctors and scientific experts the freedom they rightfully deserve.”

You may recall that Dr. Robert Young was the man who made the claim based on his discovery that the COVID shots contained graphene oxide, parasites, stainless steel and other metals. On Wednesday, he made the claim that millions have died from these experimental shots.
The Vaccine Death Report shows all the scientific evidence that millions of innocent people lost their lives and hundreds of millions are suffering crippling side effects, after being injected with the experimental CoV – 19 injections. The report exposes the strategic methods used by governments and health agencies to hide 99% of all vaccine injuries and deaths. You will also learn who is really behind all of this, and what their true agenda is.
The report also shows horrifying lab results obtained by optical microscopy investigation of several vaccine vials: living creatures with tentacles, as well as self-assembling nanorobots. See the micrograph below of a Hydra vulgaris parasite viewed by Dr. Madej using optical microscopy at 600x:

NEW YORK (AP) — Northwell Health, New York state’s largest health care provider, announced that 1,400 employees have been terminated for refusing to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
The terminations represent less than 2% of the total workforce of Northwell, which runs 23 hospitals and more than 700 outpatient facilities across the state.
“Northwell believes that having a fully vaccinated workforce is an important measure in our duty to protect the health and safety of our staff, our patients and the communities we serve,” company officials said in a statement Monday.
The officials said they regret losing any employees, adding that their goal was “to comply with the New York state mandate and to get people vaccinated, not to get people terminated.”
The statewide vaccination mandate for all hospital and nursing home workers took effect Sept. 27. It will be expanded Thursday to include home care, hospice and adult care facility workers.
SEPTEMBER 21, 2021 / 9:20 AM / CBS NEWS
Accra, Ghana — In 2019, Ghana's president invited African descendants in the diaspora to mark the "Year of Return," commemorating 400 years since the first Africans arrived in the colony now known as Virginia on a slave ship. The invite prompted record tourism to Ghana, and an increase in Americans who applied for visas to stay.
But it was the events in the United States in 2020, and the Black Lives Matter movement, that drove a real surge in people looking to move out of America and into Africa.
The Elmina Castle on Ghana's Atlantic coast is more than 5,000 miles from American shores, but the five-century old structure occupies a particularly dark place in U.S. history. Hundreds of years ago, it was a central trading hub where African people from around the continent were sold into slavery.
As the U.S. continues to confront its racist past, Ghana is turning that history upside down, and welcoming Black Americans back home.
Sonjiah Davis was the epitome of Washington cool. She was a well-connected, successful therapist trained to deal with emotional health. And yet, living in the capital of the United States, she says she was constantly looking over her shoulder.
"I was living what people would consider the American dream," she told Patta. "I was educated, professional. I had friends. I was a socialite… but I never felt safe."
Davis believes trauma is embedded in her DNA, from the transatlantic slave trade to the Tulsa race massacre in 1921 that saw some of her family displaced from their homes.
The trauma of racism, she said, was "beginning to take an emotional and psychological toll."
"I didn't even realize how traumatized I was, especially in regards to police," she told CBS News. "My immediate thought all the time was, 'Oh, my gosh, you know, what if a police officer pulls me over? Am I going to be physically safe? Am I going to come out of it alive?'"
Then George Floyd's murder at the hands of a police officer in Minnesota sparked a global cry of outrage, demanding that all Black lives matter.
For Davis, it was a breaking point.
"I was barely holding on. I could feel myself nearing a nervous breakdown," she said. "That's why I made the decision that I had to get out of there."
She had already visited Ghana in 2019, during the government's Year of Return campaign. The publicity attracted a record number of tourists, and its aim was to convert visitors into residents.
Erieka Bennet, Head of the African Diaspora Forum, said that after George Floyd was killed, the organization was inundated with inquiries.
"It was just overloaded. Every day, at least — and this is no exaggeration — at least 300 people a day, saying, 'How can we relocate to Ghana?' It did spur a sense of people wanting to get out of America," she said.
About 5,000 African Americans have made the trip back to Ghana and stayed.
"Home is not a place. It's how you feel where you are," said Bennet. "The feeling of belonging, the feeling of welcome and a sense of freedom."
Just over a year ago, Davis traded her home in Washington D.C. for that sense of freedom.
Her therapy practice is now all online, and while she misses the convenience of modern American life, she's no longer looking over her shoulder.
"I feel loved, I feel supported. I feel regarded. I feel like I matter," she said. "I don't feel like I am looked at for the color of my skin. I'm just a person here. I'm just another person."
As for building a personal connection to Ghana, Davis said she's been "trying to muster up the ability to go back to the slave castle."
Many Black Americans have been able to trace the roots of their enslaved ancestors' awful journeys to the new world back to the Elmina Castle and others like it on Ghana's Cape Coast.
"When we got there, I thought I was ready, I thought I was ready, and walking into the dungeon, I couldn't breathe," Davis recalled of her visit in 2019. "I feel like I need to go again."
Patta joined Davis as she revisited the castle. They walked down corridors shadowed by horror, past the church where slave traders would pray above chained bodies, and into the godforsaken dungeons where tens of thousands of people perished.
Only a third of the Africans dragged into the castles in bondage made it out alive, only to be pushed onto ships, never to return to the land of their birth. Davis was acutely aware as she walked through the castle that her ancestors likely passed through it, or another just like it, hundreds of years ago.
"It's heavy. It's really heavy. You feel it," she told Patta. And it has made her regard America differently.
"I think that as Black Americans, we're starting to come to the realization of our place in America. We're coming to understand that America was really never meant for us to be there, as free people."
She said she left the United States in part to reclaim her own identity.
"I know that I am in control of myself, my destiny, my dreams and everything that I want for myself, and that my ancestors wanted for me," she said.
On a recent trip back to Tulsa, Davis visited those ancestors, and she told them herself.
"I went to the cemetery and told them, 'Hey, you know, I made it. I made it out of here. I made it back. I made it back. I got out of here.'"
