A little-known legal doctrine allows suspects to be charged with murder even if they didn't kill someone. The felony murder rule is a centuries-old legal doctrine under which a person who commits a felony can be charged with murder even if they didn't intend to kill someone or if they weren't directly responsible for a person's death. In some jurisdictions, fatal shootings by police have resulted in the suspects -- but not the officer who pulled the trigger -- being charged with murder. NewsHour Weekend's Megan Thompson takes a closer look at two cases in Illinois and Alabama.

The country's growth since the 1994 massacres has come at a bloody cost. It has been 25 years since the Rwandan genocide resulted in the death of more than 800,000 Tutsi and moderate Hutu in just 100 days. Since the end of the massacres in July 1994, Rwanda has been de facto led by the Rwandan Patriotic Front, and its leader, President Paul Kagame. He is a man who has gained international acclaim as a visionary leader and for bringing an economic turnaround to the East African country. But to his opponents, and some of his previously close associates, he is a dangerous authoritarian.
