Body camera shows man yelled ‘I can’t breathe’ before death

The family of a 51-year-old man who screamed 20 times that police were killing him last week settled a wrongful-death lawsuit with the city of Oakland.

Hernan Jaramillo also repeatedly wailed that he couldn’t breathe before he died on July 8, 2013, The Oakland Tribune reported (http://bayareane.ws/1Sk18dl) Wednesday.

Face-down with police pressing him to the sidewalk, Jaramillo wailed “They’re killing me!” repeatedly in a 4-minute stretch.

30 years later, Janet Jackson is still in ‘Control’

When Janet Jackson released her “Control” album on February 4, 1986, she hadn’t had much success in the music industry.

The Jackson clan’s youngest girl’s 1982 debut album, “Janet Jackson,” just barely cracked the top 100, and her 1984 followup, “Dream Street,” didn’t even do that well.

Jackson was better known as an actress, first as young Penny on “Good Times” and later as teen Cleo Hewitt on the series “Fame.”

She lived in the shadow of her megastar brother, Michael, …

Rare TB case shows diagnosing, treating children is tough

Rare TB case shows diagnosing, treating children is tough

When a 2-year-old returned sick from a visit to India, U.S. doctors suspected tuberculosis even though standard tests said no. It would take three months to confirm she had an extreme form of the disease — a saga that highlights the desperate need for better ways to fight TB in youngsters in countries that can’t afford such creative care.

Drug-resistant tuberculosis is a global health threat, and it’s particularly challenging for young children who are harder even to diagnose, …

Judge rules against mom in legal fight for new family

A judge ruled Friday that a mother convicted in connection with the drowning of her three children is an abusive and neglectful parent, a major defeat in her legal battle for her new family.

Amanda Hamm was convicted of child endangerment in the 2003 deaths, while her then-boyfriend was convicted of first-degree murder.

Now remarried, Amanda Ware has three more children. They were removed by authorities last year after a doctor recognized her as the former Hamm.

In …

A situation among friends escalated and I regret the way I handled myself towards someone I care about. I want to apologize to the Clippers …
