Feds Probing Arson of Michael Brown Sr.'s Church

Federal investigators are looking into an arson fire that burned the Missouri church where Michael Brown's father was baptized over the weekend, NBC News reported.

It just doesn't add up," the church's pastor, Rev. Carlton Lee, said. He added that Brown had pledged his help in repairing the damage. Read »

Thanksgiving Storm Leaves More Than 344K in Darkness

Heavy snow that snarled travel plans for millions of Americans left more than 344,000 homes and businesses without power on Thanksgiving morning, NBC News reported. Power outages were reported from West Virginia to Vermont early Thursday — including 112,000 customers in Maine, 28,000 in Massachusetts and 140,000 in New Hampshire at 1 p.m. ET. More than 490 flights were canceled and more than 800 delayed across the country at 2:30 p.m. There were also 125 reported accidents on snow-slicked roads in New Jersey as winter weather made a mess of travel plans ahead of the holiday Wednesday. Areas hit by snow also face a chilly cleanup, with temperatures plunging about 10 to 20 degrees below normal in the Midwest and Ohio Valley. However, skies were clear Thursday in New York for the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in Manhattan. Read »

Lesley McSpadden, the mother of slain Ferguson teen Michael Brown, said Wednesday the first public comments from police officer Darren Wilson added "insult after injury," following a grand jury's decision not to indict the officer in the killing. Wilson's account "sounds crazy," Michael Brown Sr. said on NBC's "Today" show. It's "disrespectful," McSpadden explained. Wilson said in his interview that Brown was the instigator of the incident, reaching for Wilson's gun and charging at him. "For one, my son, he respected law enforcement,'' Brown Sr. said. "Two, who in their right mind would rush or charge at a police officer that has his gun drawn? It sounds crazy." Read »

Three other people were injured in the attack near Quetta in the restive province of Baluchistan on the border with Afghanistan.
