Need to Know News: Syracuse University basketball coach under investigation; Congress avoids another shutdown threat

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For November 18, 2011 – Syracuse University men’s basketball coach under investigation for inappropriate touching, Congress avoids another shutdown threat...

• Congress passes continuing resolution, avoids another shutdown threat: "Congress passed a temporary spending measure on Thursday that will keep the federal government funded and open for business until December 16.

The House passed the measure by a vote of 298-121 Thursday afternoon, and the Senate followed suit Thursday evening, passing the measure 70-30."

• Occupy 'day of action' simmers down: “New York city authorities ”don't expect delays on subways, buses and tunnels Friday, a day after Occupy Wall Street demonstrators converged on New York City to mark a nationwide "mass day of action."

Scores arrested Thursday and several police officers were reported injured as protesters fanned out across the city moved toward Foley Square in Lower Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge.”

Cain will be the first candidate in the race for the Republican presidential nomination in the 2012 election cycle to be placed under the protection of this federal law enforcement agency. It is not yet clear why Cain is getting Secret Service protection.”

    If it is Syracuse's policy "not to rush to judgment", then the head coach must be reprimanded for calling the victim a liar. Like Catholics who say, "I didin't see anything wrong, so the accusers are liars". As if rapists make sure they have adult witnesses before committing their heinous crimes. Thank you, Bobby Davis, for coming forward so that other children will be better protected from predators than you were. All the best to you on your road to healing.
