A 2-year-old child who was critically injured after being backed over by his mom’s vehicle around Midnight, has died. According to JSO, Christopher Jackson Jr.’s mom was visiting a relative at the Mathews Crossing Apartments on Century 21 Drive near Atlantic Blvd. The mother asked a relative to watch the boy so that she could go to the store. He was able to leave the apartment without the relative’s knowledge, and was struck by his mother as she was backing out of a parking spot. Family members drove the boy to Memorial Hospital where he later died. Police say the mother did not exhibit any indications of impairment. JSO is now calling the case an accidental death.

The State Department on Monday night released 7,000 pages of emails from Hillary Clinton’s time as Secretary of State, the fourth batch of electronic correspondence made public under orders from a federal judge, this time covering much of her second year as the top foreign policy official for the Obama Administration.
The emails offer up another view into her immediate group of advisers, both inside and outside the State Department; they included a number of emails where the content was redacted after extensive reviews by federal officials.
Clinton’s team moved quickly to downplay the email release, quoting reviews on cable news as the emails were made public.
CNN's @eliselabottcnn on latest HRC email release on @AC360: "no big bombshells, anderson" … "pretty mundane"
The emails are at times mundane, discussing when to release certain information, what time Clinton should call someone, or whether to meet with certain people about State Department business.
The emails show Clinton is not only focused on what is happening with foreign policy, but also the domestic struggle between Democrats and Republicans in the United States, as she admits to being very distressed by the big GOP wins in the 2010 mid-term elections.
This release of Clinton emails from her time as Secretary of State contains more emails from longtime Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal, who again fashions himself as an outside personal adviser to Clinton on issues both foreign and domestic.
As expected, some of the emails were redacted for reasons dealing with sensitive State Department material, like this readout of a morning meeting:
The State Department said 150 emails were classified in this review – but they were not considered classified when sent to Clinton while she was Secretary of State.
“The information we’ve upgraded was not marked classified at the time,” said State Department spokesman Mark Toner.
Other Hillary Clinton emails were blacked out for what one would assume to be personal information – in this case, an email about a Democrat from California, Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-CA).
Not only does Clinton send and receive emails from her private account, but also there are examples of where she sends emails to the private accounts of State Department aides:
