A police officer forcibly escorted Baltimore Sun photo editor Chris Assaf away from the scene of a police-involved shooting on Feb. 21. He had been taking pictures from outside the police lines, but an officer told him he had to move back further. Assaf protested, stating he was within his First Amendment rights to be where he was standing. Another officer then forced him to move. The Sun is posting all of Assaf’s images from the shooting scene as well as photos taken by Sun photographer Lloyd Fox, who witnessed and documented the incident.

General Motors has reason to celebrate after the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray won the Car of the Year Award during the press preview day of the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Chevrolet (a division of General Motors) swept both of the day’s major awards, with the Silverado pickup truck nabbing Truck of the Year honors.

As 2013 comes to a close, take a moment to enjoy these 100 images and the messages they convey.
