Cuomo/Christie and CDC differ on Ebola policies, police say Albany shootings not connected, former police officer accused of stalking attorney, the ring wanted to be found

The Ebola quarantine policies announced by Andrew Cuomo and New Jersey governor Chris Christie on Friday -- and then adjusted over the weekend -- caught criticism for being more motivated by politics than science. On Monday the CDC announced new guidance to states on how to handle people who might have been exposed to Ebola, and it's not as restrictive as the policies announced in New York and New Jersey. Said Cuomo Monday: "I disagree with the CDC, and at the end of the day, I'm the governor of the state of New York, and my No. 1 job is to protect the people of the state of New York."

Albany police chief Steven Krokoff says the five shootings in the city this month are not related, nor are they gang related. Said Krokoff: "These are people that have some level of connection and in some way, shape or form got into an argument, and it resulted in gun violence." There's a community meeting at the Capital South Campus Center Tuesday evening about gun violence. [TU] [News10] [TWCN]
