Deutsche Bank on Sunday said its first-quarter net profit fell around 50% as strong revenue growth was outweighed by a record penalty to settle with authorities over rate-rigging allegations earlier this week.

DOJ, FBI Opens Investigation Of Trayvon Martin Death

10:53 PM EST

Federal authorities have opened a formal investigation into the death of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old
black teenager shot by a neighborhood watch captain in Sanford, Florida. DOJ's full statement:
Quote:
“The Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida, and the FBI opened an investigation into the facts and circumstances of the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. The department will conduct a thorough and independent review of all of the evidence and take appropriate action at the conclusion of the investigation. The department also is providing assistance to and cooperating with the state officials in their investigation into the incident. With all federal civil rights crimes, the government must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a person acted intentionally and with the specific intent to do something which the law forbids – the highest level of intent in criminal law. Negligence, recklessness, mistakes and accidents are not prosecutable under the federal criminal civil rights laws. The Community Relations Service will be in Sanford, Fla., this week to meet with civil rights leaders, community leaders, and local law enforcement to address tension in the community.”
