night of looting rock throwing and shooting by rioters angry that a white officer was cleared in the fatal shooting of an 18yearold black man Mobs roamed the streets of predominantly black south St Petersburg Wednesday evening the same area where violence erupted after the Oct 24 shooting They set 84 fires attacked passersby with bottles and chunks of concrete and shot at a police helicopter wounding the copilot Another officer was shot in the calf and at least seven other people were injured More than 200 police officers took to the streets They closed off streets and fired canisters of tear gas and the National Guard was placed on standby But by early today the only trouble was about eight remaining blazes in homes and businesses Several people were arrested Police Chief Darrel Stephens said early today Other details on the arrests were not immediately available Earlier Wednesday a grand jury found that Officer Jim Knight was justified in shooting TyRon Lewis during a traffic stop Lewis had been speeding in a stolen car police said Knight was standing of the car trying to look in the heavily tinted windows when Lewis refused orders to surrender and lurched forward police said The car bumped the officer four times before he fired through the windshield killing Lewis The panel explained its decision in a 9 page statement appealing for calm and saying the shooting had not been racially motivated Despite the decision Stephens suspended Knight for 60 days without pay for putting himself in a position of danger Stephens blamed a small black separatist group the National Peoples Democratic Uhuru Movement for instigating trouble A good part of the activity that is taking place on the streets tonight was he said I dont believe that this was a spontaneous Around 4 hours after the ruling was released Uhuru supporters were gathered in front of a house handing out fliers calling for a community meeting KILLER COP GOES the fliers read We will not be shot down in the streets like dogs Neither will we be pushed into jails for defending our community GET ORGANIZED Police came to arrest three Uliuni members on outstanding warrants About two hours later they got a call reporting gunfire near the house Police who responded to the call were pelted with debris and Officer Keith Glasgow was shot through the left calf He was treated at Bayfront Medical Center and released Iris Brinklcy said she was in the house when police in riot gear forced their way in and sprayed tear gas How do they justify what they did They sure have no respect for the black community All we wore doing was having a she said David Schauer a lawyer who lives in the neighborhood said Everyone I talked to who was white didnt think that there would be trouble but they also didnt think that police would be stupid enough to serve warrants today on the Uhuru Around Joe Lassen copilot of a sheriffs helicopter was grazed by a bullet The helicopter was able to land safely State judge refuses to dismiss schools suit AUSTIN AP A state judge has refused to dismiss a lawsuit by school districts that says the State Board of Education is sitting on an estimated million that should be spent on computers and other technology in the classroom Judge F Scott McCown asked lawyers for the school distrits however to see if their clients are willing to delay the case against the board until the Legislature can act on the matter Lawmakers meet in regular session in January I think its appropriate for the Legislature to have an opportunity to address this McCown said Wednesday More than 80 school districts have sued saying that under the 1995 education reform law they should be getting per student for technology this school year Instead the board has OKd only per student the districts said The million is the amount that has been estimated as the difference statewide by Austin lawyer Buck Wood who represents the school districts Lawyers for the board say theres a discrepancy between the education Jaws provision for increased V technology funding and the state for the increase Assistant Attorney General Toni Hunter representing the state board said because of the discrepancy the board doesnt believe it has authority to distribute the extra money But she said the problem can certainly be fixed by the Ms Hunter asked McCown to dismiss the lawsuit saying the school districts need legislative permission to sue the state McCown would not Failing that Ms Hunter asked him to delay the lawsuit noting the pending legislative session McCown said if school districts agree to voluntarily delay the lawsuit a trial could be set in middle or late February If they do not agree and McCown decides not to require a delay he said a trial in the case would begin Dec 19 Wood said school districts in deciding whether to agree to a delay must weigh the likelihood of the Legislature giving them the money for technology rather then deciding to spend it elsewhere Clinton to oppose balanced budget amendment WASHINGTON AP President Clinton will contest Congress expected approval of a balancedbudget constitutional amendment despite earlierrefnarks that softened his longtime opposition to the plan administration officials say In an unusual effort to prevent a stampede of votes for the proposal Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin and other administration officials telephoned reporters Wednesday to say that the president never meant to voice support for the balanced budget amendment Officials were hoping to retain a slim chance of defeating the plan or at least force its supporters to agree to revisions acceptable to the White House Clinton told reporters Tuesday that he believes the amendment is unnecessary which he has said for years But he added a condition for the first time saying he would consider the idea if it contained an escape hatch for recessions when diminished business activity usually drives up federal deficits World National Briefs Rescue teams search for survivors of Peruvian crash NAZCA Peru AP Rescue teams searching the rugged southern Peruvian backcountry found two bodies and three survivors in a collapsed gold mine where others are believed still trapped following a strong earthquake Army and police patrols found the five people Wednesday in the Huanca mine 480 miles southeast of Lima after navigating roads blocked by landslides and washed out by recent flooding Immediately after the magnitude quake the government said that up to 60 people may have been buried in at least three mines including Huanca But it was unclear today if those numbers were accurate It seems the people are tending to exaggerate things They believe they will get more attention that said Otakar Lukac who is leading firefighting teams in

people have been confirmed dead and 560 were injured civil defense Gen Julio Alcocer said Wednesday Earlier government statements had put the figures at 15 dead and 700 hurt IsraeliPalestinian talks on Hebron hit snag HEBRON West Bank AP Talks on a Hebron troop pullback snagged today over demands that Israeli troops be able to chase Palestinian suspects in the city without restrictions Yasser Arafat said he was not optimistic an agreement could be reached The latest deadlock came less than a day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu canceled a weeklong trip to the United States because he felt agreement was imminent Netanyahu had planned to leave for Seattle late Wednesday The negotiations are at a very crucial sensitive stage and the prime minister felt his departure at this point might undermine the chances of Netanyahu spokesman David BarUlan said today In Hebron a city of Palestinians and 500 Jewish settlers hundreds of Palestinian scouts from elementary and high schools marched through downtown streets today to mark Independence Day Black leaders push for probe into motorists death PITTSBURGH AP Anger over the acquittal of a white police officer in a black
