Friends and relatives recalled Craig Berner - a Moorestown patrolman fatally struck by a truck while off duty - as one of the good guys, who would help even a turtle in need. Berner, a member of the township police department for 26 years, died nearly a year ago on his way to a store when he was thrown from his motorcycle and struck by a pickup truck. Several dozen people gathered Monday evening at Memorial Field on South Church Street for a candlelight vigil to honor Berner and garner support to reopen a criminal investigation into Berner's death.

The police squad repeatedly swooped down on bodegas and smoke shops, saying they were searching for the small plastic bags often used to package drugs. But merchants complained that the officers made off with cash and merchandise after disabling security cameras to mask their conduct. The actions of the Narcotics Field Unit - in one case graphically captured by a camera with a backup hard drive - triggered a major scandal in the city in 2009. The result was an FBI investigation of the officers, dropped charges against some defendants, and numerous federal civil right lawsuits filed by people who said they were abused or framed by the squad.

IRIS HAD WILTED long ago, around the time her brother died, neighbors believe. She used to clean the windows of her Kensington home every morning, but in recent years, Iris Galarza, 88, smelled of urine. She wore plastic bags on her feet and stopped three times a day at the corner store, where the owners gave her food out of pity. When she didn't get her food there, she got it at shelters or by picking through trash cans, neighbors said. The deaf woman's house had none of the things a house should have — no running water, electricity or heat, according to court records.

LONDON - Rupert Murdoch's dream of controlling a British broadcasting behemoth has evaporated with the withdrawal of his bid for BSkyB - the latest, biggest casualty of what Prime Minister David Cameron called the hacking "firestorm" sweeping through British politics, media, and police. Cameron appointed a senior judge to lead an inquiry into the phone-hacking and police-bribery scandal engulfing Murdoch's British newspapers, and promised it would investigate whether Murdoch's reporters sought the phone numbers of 9/11 victims in their quest for sensational scoops.
