TODAY'S HEADLINES, 8/21/14 *** In Hiroshima, Japan at least 39 people are dead and seven others missing following flash floods and landslides caused by torrential rain *** Peaceful protests continued last night in Ferguson, Missouri, over the fatal police shooting of unarmed African-American teenager Michael Brown. Prosecutors have begun presenting evidence before a grand jury to determine whether the officer who shot Brown, Darren Wilson, will face criminal charges. Wilson remains on paid leave *** A police officer caught on video threatening to kill peaceful protesters in Ferguson has been suspended indefinitely. Video from Tuesday night shows the officer pointing his semiautomatic assault rifle at protesters and telling them to "go f— yourself." The officer has been identified as Lt. Ray Albers of the Saint Ann police. Meanwhile, an Al Jazeera America team reports another police officer in Kinloch, Missouri, which is next to Ferguson, ordered them to leave an area where they were shooting video footage and threatened to "bust your head." At the time they were on a public street *** St. Louis police have released cellphone footage of the shooting of a 25-year-old black man that appears to conflict with their description of the story. On Tuesday, police shot and killed Kajieme Powell after he was accused of stealing energy drinks and donuts from a convenience store. Police Chief Sam Dotson said Powell had been shot three or four feet from the officers after brandishing a knife in an "overhand grip" and refusing repeated orders to drop it. But the cellphone video shows Powell appears to be further away than that, and has his hands at his side. It also shows police shot Powell within about 20 seconds of arriving at the scene. The shooting happened about three miles from where Michael Brown was killed *** More tomorrow
