Police in the Australian state of Victoria said Tuesday Sen. Fraser Anning acted in self-defense when he struck a boy who cracked an egg on him — but they issued the 17-year-old with an official caution.

Details: Investigators decided not to charge either after viewing footage that was shared around the world following the incident, but police said in a statement they were trying to identify a man who allegedly kicked "egg boy" Will Connolly as he was restrained on the ground by Anning's supporters.

The big picture: The incident was prompted by Anning's remarks blaming Muslim immigration for the fatal attack on 2 New Zealand mosques — for which he was censured in Australia's parliament this month. Almost US$60,000 was raised in honor of Connolly, who pledged to donate it to the mosque attack victims.

Louisville officer: "Breonna Taylor would be alive" if we had served no-knock warrant

Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly, the Louisville officer who led the botched police raid that caused the death of Breonna Taylor, said the No. 1 thing he wishes he had done differently is either served a "no-knock" warrant or given five to 10 seconds before entering the apartment: "Breonna Taylor would be alive, 100 percent."

Driving the news: Mattingly, who spoke to ABC News and Louisville's Courier Journal for his public interview, was shot in the leg in the initial moments of the March 13 raid. Mattingly did not face any charges after Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said he and another officer were "justified" in returning fire to protect themselves against Taylor's boyfriend.

U.S. vs. Google — the siege begins

The Justice Department fired the starter pistol on what's likely to be a years-long legal siege of Big Tech by the U.S. government when it filed a major antitrust suit Tuesday against Google.

The big picture: Once a generation, it seems, federal regulators decide to take on a dominant tech company. Two decades ago, Microsoft was the target; two decades before that, IBM.

Why the stimulus delay isn't a crisis (yet)

If the impasse between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the White House on a new stimulus deal is supposed to be a crisis, you wouldn't know it from the stock market, where prices continue to rise.

  • That's been in no small part because U.S. economic data has held up remarkably well in recent months thanks to the $2 trillion CARES Act and Americans' unusual ability to save during the crisis.
