A lot riding on these videos. The Star Tribune’s Chao Xiong, Brandon Stahl and David Chanen report: “Jurors deliberating whether officer Jeronimo Yanez was justified in fatally shooting Philando Castile reconvened to watch squad car dashcam video and Facebook live video of the aftermath. … Both videos were replayed in open court Tuesday morning after jurors submitted a request, less than half an hour after into the day, for the videos. … Jurors also requested transcripts of the dashcam video and an interview Yanez gave to Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigators after the shooting. Judge William Leary III denied both requests.”

This is gonna be painful. The Southwest Journal’s Michelle Bruch reports: “August marks the start of four-and-a-half years of construction on Interstate 35W between Downtown and 43rd Street. … The roughly $265 million project is similar in scale to the Crosstown reconstruction of I-35W and Highway 62 a decade ago. It will involve shutting down I-35W access to Downtown via Highway 65 in mid-2018 (after the Super Bowl), diverting vehicles and buses to neighborhood streets. I-35W will remain open throughout the project with lane reductions beginning in 2018. Bridges that cross the highway will close one by one for reconstruction or re-decking, with the Franklin Avenue Bridge among the first wave of closures.”

How long do you think this will last? MPR reports: “Liquor stores will open on Sundays across Minnesota on July 1 — but not everywhere. A provision added to the Sunday sales law during the recent special Legislative session allows cities to regulate what days liquor sales are allowed. Some already have ordinances that may stay in place. … That’s the case in Ely, where the City Council decided not to take up a change, at the request of three liquor stores in town. … ‘The ma-and-pa shops don’t want to be open on Sunday, mostly. They want a day off,’ Ely Mayor Chuck Novak said. ‘The amount of business they would have on Sundays would probably be a money loser in small towns.’”

Not that often you hear about one of these guys getting caught. The Pioneer Press’ Nick Woltman reports: “A 28-year-old Latvian man is accused of using malware embedded in the Minneapolis Star Tribune’s website to steal more than $2 million from the site’s visitors in 2010. … Peteris Sahurovs was apprehended in Poland in November and extradited to the United States, where he made his first appearance in U.S. District Court on Monday in Minneapolis, according to a news release from the U.S. attorney’s office. … Sahurovs, who was at one time the FBI’s fifth-most-wanted cybercriminal, faces two counts of wire fraud, one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and one count of unauthorized access to a protected computer, the news release said.”
