"Mr. Spicer wants your icebox, the aide said, according to people familiar with the incident. They refused to give it up."

When Grant asked the young men who made them come out and clean, they responded in unison, nobody."

"We aren't in trouble," one man said. "It just feels good to give back to the community."

The young men told Grant that they are not looking for any recognition,

"We save money to buy bags and all," another boy said. "It just brings us together.”

Channel 2's Kimberly Richardson spoke with one of the men who was cleaning the neighborhood.

Zac Ross said he's just doing it for the children in the community.

"We have kids watching people throw trash everywhere," Ross explained. "They desperately need bigger role models."

Ross went on to explain that their community needs unity and positivity, especially in today's world.

"It doesn't matter what color you are," Ross said. "We want to help."

In the video, Grant tells the young men that he wishes that he had done this as a boy, and that he feels "real ashamed."

Body cam footage of officer shooting two dogs released

Body camera footage was released Thursday of the Minneapolis Police officer who climbed a fence and shot two dogs while he responded to a false alarm.

The graphic, point-of-view video shows Officer Michael Mays take aim, then fired at Ciroc hitting the dog in the jaw as it slowly walked toward him during the incident July 8. Another dog, Rocko, then runs into the frame and Mays fires twice striking the dog.

“Hey I’m going to sit there and say sorry about this,” Mays tells Courtney Livingston, who lives at the home, in the video. “I don’t like shooting no dogs. I love dogs so it’s unfortunate.”

Both of the staffordshire terriers survived but require extensive surgery. The department has said they will help pay for the vet bills. A GoFundMe to help the family has raised more than $36,000.

“Rocko is physically at 75 percent,” said homeowner Jennifer LeMay, who said the dogs are service animals for her children. “Emotionally and physically he’s not there.”

LeMay hired an attorney who questioned the police response.

“They need to assume responsibility,” LeMay told WCCO. “They need further training.”

Former police Chief Janee Harteau said they department would look into officer training for interacting with dogs.

“I’ve watched the video, and as someone whose family has included dogs most of my life, I can say that it was difficult to watch. This was an outcome that no one wanted. I’ve asked for an Internal Affairs use of force review. We are reaching out to the family to help them with the veterinary care bills to ensure that both dogs are adequately taken care of,” Harteau said in the statement. “To help us prevent similar outcomes in the future, we will be implementing updated mandatory training specifically for officers identifying effective tools and tactical strategies with police and dog encounters.”

Harteau resigned Friday in the wake of another officer-involved shooting. A woman was fatally shot after she called police to reporting a possible sexual assault in an alley behind her home.

Atlanta group protests CNN coverage of Trump

About 30 people gathered outside CNN’s Atlanta headquarters Saturday to protest the network’s coverage of President Donald Trump.

“Beware fake news” and “CNN. Criminal News Network” were some of the messages they delivered to people walking nearby and to fellow political conservatives watching the demonstration via live feed on Breitbart.com.

The protest was the second recently held outside CNN’s headquarters in downtown Atlanta.

This time it was joined by The Media Equality Project, a group started recently by two former talk show hosts who are friends with conservative commentator Sean Hannity.

One of the organizers -- Debbie Dooley, co-founder of the Tea Party activist group Main Street Patriots -- said her group was outside CNN a month ago and would be back in August and September.

“We’re going to keep on holding them accountable,” Dooley said. 

She said the demonstration was not necessarily to show support for Trump but to call attention to what they see as “biased” coverage of the president, the investigation into Russia’s meddling in last year’s elections and Trump’s policies. 

“We’re here to tell CNN no more fake news,” said another organizer, Melanie Morgan of the Media Equality Project. “They have to know people who are here expect fairness in journalism.”

She had a list of people CNN has allegedly wronged, — including former Trump aide Monica Crowley and Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke.

Also, they cited stories they think were unfair, like tracking down of the Reddit user who created a wrestling GIF that the President retweeted, and the Russian collusion story that CNN retracted and which resulted in some CNN employees resigning. 

CNN spokeswoman Bridget Leininger declined to comment on the protest.

Police break window to rescue dogs from hot car

Boston police officers and firefighters broke into a car Thursday evening to save a couple of dogs trapped inside.

Boston 25 was there when police pulled the dogs from the car and put them into a police cruiser.

A woman told us she was out for a run on Columbia Road in South Boston when she saw the dogs inside the car.

She said she checked the temperature on her phone and it was 87 degrees outside.

She ran to get police, and officers broke in and took the dogs.

The woman was talking to our crew when the dog's owner returned about two hours after the dogs were found. The man said to us, "There is no problem. What's the problem?"

Alan Borgel, of the Animal Rescue League of Boston, said he often gets a similar reaction.

"People never think they did anything wrong," he said. 

If you see an animal locked in a car, call police. Borgel said people should not break the window or open doors because the laws have changed. 

Owners could be charged with a felony and get jail time for keeping an animal in a hot car.

The owner from Thursday evening was cited for violating the state's tethering law and not vaccinating one of his dogs. He was fined $200. He was given his dogs back, which are in good condition. 

When we checked the temperature inside a car Friday, a heat gun showed 152 degrees Fahrenheit on the dashboard and 91 in the seats.
