ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — City leaders in Albuquerque say they accept a Justice Department report released today that says police in New Mexico's largest city frequently used deadly force on people who posed a minimal threat and used a higher level of force too often on those with mental illness. Federal investigators focused on 37 shootings — 23 of them fatal — by officers since 2010. By comparison, police in the similarly sized cities of Denver and Oakland have been involved in fatal and non-fatal shootings totaling 27 and 23, respectively.
PHOENIX (AP) — Documents released by law enforcement documents show how the man who shot former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was unraveling in the month before the rampage. The FBI investigative files include paranoid, expletive-filled Internet rants by Jared Loughner about killing and the government. One MySpace post included a message about his "huge goal at the end of my life: 165 rounds fired in a minute!" Lougher killed six people outside a Tucson, Az. Store in 2011.
WASHINGTON (AP) — A White House official says Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is resigning.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The House has approved a bill that would bar Iran's choice for ambassador to the United Nations from stepping on U.S. soil. By a voice vote, lawmakers sent the measure to President Barack Obama for his signature. It would deny entry to the United States to an individual found to be engaged in espionage, terrorism or a threat to national security. U.S. officials objected to the selection of Hamid Abutalebi because of his alleged participation in a Muslim student group that held 52 Americans hostage for 444 days after the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran.
