First Slice 8/18/14: Georgia teens launch app to rate police

What did you do for fun during your teenage years? Were you, like Parkview High School student Ima Christian and her siblings, making apps that allow people to rate interactions with police officers? The beta version of the app, named Five-0, goes live today.

Atlanta's sky-high water rates are likely to remain stable at least until 2016, says Moody's Investor Services. So know your bills will stay high but maybe not go too much higher.

Noise from a nearby firing range has caused at least one resident of a Gwinnett County subdivision to wear earplugs while at home to muffle the soothing sound of repeat gunfire.

Michael Brown, the unarmed Missouri teenager who was shot and killed by a police officer, sparking days of protest and a militarized response by local police, was shot at least six times, according to an autopsy requested by his family.
