Ridgeland Police in Mississippi showed up at Paul and Angela Thompson Roby’s home looking for Angela’s brother Carneigio Gray.
Once police found him and began to arrest Gray on contempt charges, the Roby’s six-year-old son pleaded for officers not to hurt his uncle.
That’s when the young boy’s parents say police pointed their weapons at him. His parents say he is special needs.

As other victims of Metro-North crash are remembered
The investigation into what caused Tuesday’s deadly Metro-North crash in Valhalla, NY, is focusing on how a mother of three described by friends as “responsible” ended up in the crossing as a train hurtled toward her.
