I used to live in Chicago. I wish I could say it's surprising that a cop shot a 17-year-old 16 times—firing after the kid fell, re-loading, even—and that it was covered up for more than a year, but it's not.

Knott stubbornly chose to fight charges of assault, endangerment and conspiracy that steam from a gay-bashing incident, for which two other suspects have already pled guilty to conspiracy charges.

Idris Elba is on Men's Health (December 2015), and he's talking about his approach to fitness:
“Some guys want to be toned or want to jog for miles, but my ultimate fitness goal is to be fight-ready. If I step into the ring, could I go toe-to-toe for five rounds? That's what I strive for. That's what I consider fit. I want to know that if I'm being wrestled to the ground, I've got the strength to fight a man off. Kickboxing is rugged—it's all core strength. But when you're fight-ready, you feel like you can last forever.”
