Law Enforcement Reports LIVE on CNN that *3* cops are ill possible Ebola

Thomas Eric Duncan, the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States, died Wednesday, 10 days after he was admitted to a Texas hospital. His family wonders if the outcome would have been different if doctors had admitted Duncan to hospital on September 25, the first time he showed up with a fever and stomach pain?

Now, A Dallas deputy has been hospitalized with possible symptoms of the virus, but there's "no risk" of Ebola, a Texas health official said Wednesday. The deputy, Sgt. Michael Monnig, didn't have any direct contact with Duncan.

However, five of America's biggest, busiest airports are beefing up measures. Now, people arriving from the three nations hardest hit by Ebola will get special screening, including having their temperature taken. The airports are: New York's JFK, Washington-Dulles, Newark, Chicago-O'Hare and Atlanta international airports.

Police: Off-duty St. Louis officer shoots, kills man who fired at him

According to CNN, Just 12 miles south of the spot where a police officer killed Michael Brown, it happened again: Another 18-year-old died at the hands of police Wednesday.
An off-duty officer opened fire on the teen, and the policeman didn't stop until he'd fired his weapon 17 times, authorities say.

Angry erupted among residents, who damaged police cars, and they pointed to what they felt were parallels to the Brown shooting. But in reality, the similarities are slim.

Yes, the teen was black. And the officer was white. Yes, the officer fired several times. And it all unfolded in the St. Louis metro area.
But the commonalities end there.
In this case, the 18-year-old was armed, and he fired on the officer first, St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said.

The death comes on the heels of the Brown shooting two months ago in the suburb of Ferguson, and just ahead of a "Weekend of Resistance" in St. Louis, where activists will push for movement in the investigation into th…
