Top 5 Live-February 16

Top 5 Live –WURD Monday February 16
1. Danish police kill 22-year-old suspected of Copenhagen shootings

Police shot and killed a 22-year-old Danish-born gunman on Sunday after he killed two people in separate incidents in Denmark.

Authorities said the gunman was known to intelligence services and police prior to the shooting and had a record of gang-related activities and weapons possession. Authorities believe he probably acted alone.

Two civilians – a synagogue guard and a film-maker – were killed and five police were wounded in the two separate attacks in the Danish capital on Saturday and Sunday.


2. Second-in-command at L&I reassigned, pending investigation

The Nutter administration reassigned the second-in-command at the Department of Licenses & Inspections Friday, while the city investigates his oversight of tough new demolition regulations imposed after the Center City building collapse that killed six people in 2013.

Scott Mulderig, the department’s director of Emergency Services – a unit that deals with demolitions, building collapses, fires, and other matters – has been reassigned after The Inquirer questioned city officials about building demolitions that occurred on Mulderig’s watch.


3. Goodman mayoral candidacy adds to question of race in campaign

In Philadelphia political campaigns, it’s called the racial math.

A leading candidate can see his or her prospects diminish if someone of the same race becomes a candidate for the same office.

The numbers are starting to add up for State Sen. Anthony Williams’ bid for mayor – and not in a good way.


 4. Final sentence ends Main Line drug case

The case against a Main Line drug ring that sold marijuana to high school and college students ended Friday when Willow Orr, 22, was sentenced to five years probation.

Orr was the last of the 11-person drug ring to be sentenced. The dealers spanned in age from two 17-year-olds charged as juveniles to ring leaders Timothy Brooks, 19, and Neil Scott, 25. Earlier this month, Brooks got a prison sentence of 9 to 23 months, and Scott was sentenced in November to five to 15 years in prison.


5. Federal court backs U.S. Marshalls in black teen’s shooting

A federal appeals court ruled that three deputy U.S. marshals cannot be sued for the 2007 shooting of Michael Fenwick, a black 16-year-old who attempted to drive away from them after the officers had asked to speak to him.

In the January 2007 incident in Washington, the officers, Andrew Pudimott, Jeremy Fischer and John Mickle, ordered Fenwick to stop. He kept going, clipping Pudimott with the car’s side mirror as he drove past.

Like everyone else, I was surprised that Bill Cosby’s sexual assault conviction was overturned by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. It’s one thing for me to believe that Cosby was treated unfairly by a racist criminal justice system. It’s quite another thing for the state’s highest court to say Cosby’s due process rights were violated. Read on @whyy
