A federal judge on Tuesday ordered Arizona lawman Joe Arpaio to stand trial in December on a criminal contempt charge of violating the terms of a court ruling against the controversial sheriff in a 2007 racial profiling case. The latest court order setting Arpaio's trial date for Dec. 6 means that the six-term Maricopa County sheriff will be spared from facing the contempt charge in court until well after his bid for re-election on Nov. 8. Under contempt proceedings approved by U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton, Arpaio is accused of disobeying the terms of a 2011 court injunction barring his officers from stopping and detaining motorists based solely on suspicion that they were in the country illegally.

There is no reason Britain's June vote to leave the European Union should undermine a 1998 Northern Irish peace deal, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday. Northern Ireland voted to remain in the EU and Irish nationalist parties oppose Brexit, saying it could undermine the 1998 Belfast Agreement and reinstate a hard border with the Republic of Ireland. "I don't believe there's any reason to believe that the outcome of the referendum will do anything to undermine the absolute rock-solid commitment of this government and the people of Northern Ireland to the settlement that was set out in the Belfast Agreement," May told parliament.

Ethiopia on Wednesday denied that a string of withdrawals of troops from towns in Somalia were connected to the state of emergency declared in response to nearly a year of anti-government protests. Government spokesman Getachew Reda insisted the removal of troops from a string of Somali towns -- including at least three since Ethiopia declared a six-month state of emergency on October 9 -- was to do with the "financial burden" and "lack of support" rather than the need for more troops at home. "It has nothing to do with the state of emergency," Reda told a press conference in the capital Addis Ababa.

Three in four Americans have a “great deal” of respect for their local law enforcement, according to a Gallup poll, marking the highest rate of community approval in nearly 50 years. The number has increased by 12 points since last year, with 17 percent saying they have “some” respect for police and only 7 percent saying they have “hardly any.” That jump, which comes at a time when tensions between minorities and police officers have escalated, also follows an outpouring of support for police after the high-profile slayings of officers in Dallas and Louisiana over the summer. “Some of it is the rallying support of law enforcement in the wake of the shootings,” Laurie Robinson, a criminology professor at George Mason University who co-chaired President Barack Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing, told The Wall Street Journal.

McMullin, the 40-year-old previously unknown Capitol Hill staffer who is the surprise presidential candidate of 2016, is everlastingly polite and remarkably normal-looking.
