FERGUSON, Mo. — Gov. Jay Nixon on Thursday ordered the Missouri National Guard to begin withdrawing from Ferguson, where nightly scenes of unrest have erupted since a white police officer fatally shot an unarmed black 18-year-old nearly two weeks ago.
Clark County will finance the legal defense of two former Clark County Sheriff's Office employees, one of whom a jury in February found to have fabricated evidence against Clyde Ray Spencer, a former Vancouver police officer wrongfully imprisoned for molesting his children in the 1980s. The second was also found liable.
Two Vancouver men will go to prison for a year for assaulting the ex-boyfriend of one of their daughters when they went to recover some disputed belongings from the ex-boyfriend's residence in Battle Ground in June 2013.
