Better chance comes Saturday night and Sunday.

Several protesters disrupted Cleveland City Council's meeting on Monday night to call attention to the death of 12-year-old Tamir Rice. Tamir was holding an airsoft pellet gun when he was fatally shot by a Cleveland police officer on Nov. 22, 2014 outside Cudell Rec Center in Cleveland.  About two weeks ago, the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Officereleased several reports from the investigation that called the officers' actions "reasonable." In June, a Cleveland Municipal Court judge thought otherwise and made a recommendation that the officers be charged with murder. Protesters expressed their frustrations on the lack of developments in the case. Holding signs and chanting, the group demanded action.Councilman Jeff Johnson voiced his support, saying it's been a year and it's time for something to happen. One man out of the dozen was even escorted out. It is unknown if he was arrested or just removed for being unruly.

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Lamar Odom is alert and his condition is improving after the former NBA star was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel a week ago, his family said Monday. Alvina Alston, publicist for Odom's aunt JaNean Mercer, said the former reality-TV personality is undergoing testing, but there is no word yet on when he might be released from the hospital. Odom is overcoming "insurmountable obstacles" and defying the odds, Mercer said in a statement. "Each day Lamar is getting stronger and reaching significant milestones in his recovery," the statement said. Odom was found in extremely critical condition at the Love Ranch brothel in the rural community of Crystal, Nevada, on Oct. 13 and was hospitalized in Las Vegas. He regained consciousness and communicated for the first time Friday. The brothel said workers saw him drink alcohol and take supplements sold as "herbal Viagra." The Food and Drug Administration issued a warning in 2013 against one brand he took, Reload, after it was found to contain sildenafil, the active ingredient in prescription Viagra. He also told at least one of the women that he had done cocaine, but the brothel says it did not see him take any drugs or find any there. Odom's family, including estranged wife Khloe Kardashian, rushed to Las Vegas to be by his side at the hospital. Friends, teammates and loved ones also have visited and posted requests for prayers on social media. Love Ranch owner Dennis Hof has said that Odom arrived Oct. 10 for a four-day stay and spent $75,000 on two women who accompanied him in a VIP suite.
