Chemical weapons investigators to visit Syria

U.N. experts will travel to Syria to investigate claims of chemical weapons used during the country’s civil war after the United Nations and the Syrian government agreed on details of the trip. The U.N. said two weeks ago that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government had agreed to let the inspectors, led by Swedish scientist Ake Sellstrom, travel to three sites where chemical weapons were reported to have been used. Ban’s press office said Wednesday that the Syrian government had now “formally accepted the modalities essential for cooperation to ensure the proper, safe and efficient conduct of the mission.” (Source)

911 dispatcher fired after Facebook post

Jessica Camarillo, a 911 dispatcher who wrote a controversial post on Facebook, has been fired. Her post concerned the police-involved shooting of Joshua Omar Johnson, who was gunned down at a Wells Fargo after allegedly trying to pass a bad check and then reportedly hitting an officer with his car. Camarilllo’s Facebook post read: "I think the officers should sue the [Johnson] family for putting the officers' lives in danger, making detectives work past the time they were suppose to get off, the gas it took for them to get to the scene, the bullets used, the hospital bills, the equipment needed for forensics, and making me work the channel instead of reading my hot sexy" Camarillo met with her attorney Tuesday to grieve the firing. She said she received official notice of the termination August 5, a date outside the city’s guidelines of when she should have been notified by the city manager. (Source)
