*The authorities may have a new problem to deal with now: Civilians taking the law into their own hands. Emotions in America are running on high; and people are allowing themselves to being fueled by it. On Sunday, according to Reuters, two people–a man and a woman–were arrested and charged with the murder of two police; who were shot a day earlier during a routine traffic stop in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, officials said.
Residents within 80 miles (130 km) southeast of Jackson had been told to stay indoors after one suspect, who fled the scene in a police car, caused the launch of a manhunt.
The police car was later found abandoned.
Marvin Banks, 29, and Joanie Calloway, 22, were each charged with two counts of capital murder, police said.
Banks’ brother Curtis, 26, was also arrested and charged with two counts of accessory after the fact of capital murder.
Police identified a fourth man as Cornelius Clark. He was arrested later on Sunday, and was booked on an obstruction of justice charge.
