Three Securitas employees are shown on video involved in confrontation with 15-year-old who had been evicted with a group of friends
The family of a 15-year-old boy who was filmed being punched by security guards at a shopping mall in Georgia have said they will formally ask authorities to arrest the three men involved in the confrontation.
Applications for criminal warrants against the Securitas guards, who were recorded fighting the boy at Stonecrest Mall outside Atlanta last weekend, are due to be filed at a magistrate court on Thursday, said Mawuli Mel Davis, an attorney representing the boy and his mother, on Wednesday.

After bouncing around for the first time in his NBA career, Paul Pierce has decided he likes being a hired gun. The veteran forward and the Los Angeles Clippers agreed to a deal, per Dan Woike of the Orange County Register.
NBA.com’s David Aldridge reported it’s a three-year deal and added that Pierce’s deal is for the “mini-mid level for taxpaying teams, per sources. Two years beginning at $3.3, with option for third year.”
The Washington Wizards could have paid him roughly double that, per Arash Markazi of ESPN.com.
Pierce will be playing for his fourth franchise in as many seasons. In his lone campaign in Washington, he averaged a career-low 11.9 points and 4.0 rebounds, though that far undersells what Pierce brought to the table.
Signed as a low-cost replacement for Trevor Ariza, Pierce added a brashness and toughness that Washington’s locker room was missing.
He openly called out young stars John Wall and Bradley Beal, pushing them to continue getting better. He revamped his game as a more stationary shooter, only taking over the offense when situations necessitated it.
And he came through with clutch shots. A ton of them.
The last image of Paul Pierce last season was nearly perfect. Down three points in Game 6 of the Wizards’ conference semifinals series with the Atlanta Hawks, Pierce separated himself from Kyle Korver and launched an off-balanced three as time expired to seemingly send the game to overtime. It would have been Pierce’s third mystifyingly clutch moment of the series.
Unfortunately, replay showed time had expired before Pierce got the shot off. Atlanta advanced, leaving Pierce obviously despondent as he pondered his future.
“Truthfully, what was going through my mind is, I don’t have too much of these efforts left, if any,” Pierce said after the season, per Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post. “These rides throughout the NBA season, throughout the playoffs, are very emotional. They take a lot out of not only your body, but your mind, your spirit.”
After opting out of his 2015-16 option, Pierce’s next step was always intriguing. Returning to Washington was always on the table, but he wasn’t lacking for suitors. Former coach Doc Rivers has been trying to lure Pierce almost since the moment he came to Los Angeles, and there was even some speculation Pierce could return to the Boston Celtics.
Pierce played his first 15 seasons in Boston before the Celtics traded him to the Brooklyn Nets prior to the 2013-14 season. Playing for a rising coach in Brad Stevens who led an undermanned Boston roster to the playoffs last year had to be tempting.
In the end, Los Angeles offered the best combination of sentimental value and ability to compete for a championship. With his days on an NBA floor nearing an end, it’s not a surprise Pierce found the happy medium.
Today, we had a true summer day with a high of 82°, sunny skies and high humidity. Tonight, some of the cloud cover that lingered today begins to dissipate with a low of 69°, although a stray shower is possible.
A cold front moves through overnight tonight, leaving us with slightly cooler temperatures tomorrow with highs in the upper 70s/low 80s in and around the area. But the skies remain bright and high pressure builds throughout the day setting up for another day of summer sun on Friday.
And while there is still the chance for some precipitation on the 4th of July, your holiday weekend is trending drier with temperatures at about 80°.
That’s all I have for now, be sure to check back soon for more weather updates.

The New York Times should stick to what it knows and stay out of our guacamole.
On Wednesday morning, TNYT decided to advise its readers on one of the most beloved foods of all time — guacamole. The legendary paper offended and disturbed many subscribers when it tweeted out an article that suggested guacamole enthusiasts add PEAS(PEEEEAAAASSSS!!!) to their guac for “sweetness” and “texture”.
The PS Vita never came close to fulfilling its massive potential, and with scant attention to the portable at this year’s E3, it looks like Sony has all but given up on it as the system it was originally meant to be. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it isn’t still worth a look – as Sony has succeeded (with some asterisks attached) at reinventing the Vita as a modern streaming console.
By Anna Yukhananov WASHINGTON (Reuters) – One day after Greece became the first developed economy to default on a loan with the International Monetary Fund, the head of the international lender on Wednesday suggested Greece should move to reform its economy before its European creditors give it a break on its debt. In an interview with Reuters, IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde avoided any pointed criticism of Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras but still hinted at frustrations as she noted that Greece's economy had been on the road to recovery before the current left-wing Syriza party came to power. Lagarde was asked which should come first, commitments to reform by Athens or relief on its debts from euro zone governments.
