Sacramento Mayor Daryl Steinberg proposed the new policy and said that’s the goal. “There have been too many shootings. We’re also trying to protect the lives of officers as well,” he said. With a vote of 8 to 1, Sacramento City Council adopted a higher use-of-force standard for police. Under this new policy, officers are justified in using deadly force only as a last resort. “Anyone in their right mind, well of course the officer, should never use deadly force unless it’s necessary,” said Chief Hahn.

SACRAMENTO (AP/CBS13) – California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s use of emergency powers to make far-reaching policies during the pandemic was upheld Wednesday by state appellate judges who rejected a lower court finding that the Democrat had done too much unilaterally. Three judges from the 3rd District Court of Appeal in Sacramento ruled unanimously that the prior judge “erred in interpreting the Emergency Services Act to prohibit the Governor from issuing quasi-legislative orders in an emergency.

One of the most intriguing free agent signings for the Chicago Bears so far this offseason has been the addition of former Kansas City Chiefs running back Damien Williams . The Chiefs released Williams in a move to free up around $2 million in cap space this offseason, and Matt Nagy and company promptly swooped in and signed him. Williams chose to opt-out of the 2020 season to care for and be near his mother, who had been diagnosed with stage-4 cancer, but the former Super Bowl hero is ready to return to the field in 2021. When we last saw him, the 29-year-old running back was tearing through defenses in the 2019 postseason. He scored three touchdowns in the Chiefs' divisional round playoff win over the Houston Texans, and he followed that performance up with a 104 yard, two-touchdown showing in the Chiefs' Super Bowl LIV win over the San Francisco 49ers.
