A Mississippi cop held a young man by the neck as onlookers screamed, “He can’t breathe!,” troubling video shows. The 2-minute clip posted to Facebook Friday shows a uniformed Jackson police officer with both hands wrapped around the man’s neck. “What did I tell you to do?” the officer screams at the man, video shows. “Make me, make me, make me … I said make me, boy.” The officer, identified by the Jackson Free Press as Myron Smith, then tells a woman who tries to intervene to take her hands off him as she says the man is having trouble breathing. “He’s trying to breathe!” she says. “He’s telling you he can’t breathe.”

I am not defending bad cops but you have to feel for LEO's that leave home every shift not knowing if they will come home. They are spit on, cussed at, run over on the highway, and shot. Sooner or later somebody snaps and stops the nonsense. The perp that not only killed his pregnant GF, but a female police officer with three kids, has jerked the judicial system around for years now and still hasn't been sentenced.

A mob of monkeys stormed a lab worker in India and snatched several coronavirus-positive blood samples — causing outbreak-fearing neighbors to go ape, according to a report Friday. In the totally bananas attack, the laboratory technician was carrying boxes of the blood across the campus of a state-run medical college in Meerut, near Delhi, when the primates pounced, according to Reuters. “Monkeys grabbed and fled with the blood samples of four COVID-19 patients who are undergoing treatment,” said S. K. Garg, a top official at the college. “We had to take their blood samples again.”

The white Minneapolis police officer who knelt on George Floyd’s neck was arrested and charged with murder Friday. Derek Chauvin, 44, was charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the case. “What Minnesota had said in this initial charging is the officer did not have premeditation, he did not go into this incident desiring to kill this victim,” explained Jacksonville attorney Gene Nichols. According to the criminal complaint, Chauvin allegedly disregarded the concerns of another officer, who wanted to roll Floyd onto his side as he was being held down. The papers also said that an autopsy revealed nothing to support strangulation as the cause of death.

YouTube removed and then reinstated an episode of Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani's podcast about former Vice President Joe Biden's relationship with China. A spokesperson for the platform told the Washington Examiner on Thursday that the video, which was posted on April 24 and deleted on May 12, was removed accidentally and has been reposted. "Our team is glad the mistake was rectified," Giuliani's spokesperson told the Washington Examiner. Giuliani's team was informed early in the morning on May 12 that "video has been removed from YouTube" because it "was flagged to us for review," and upon that review, they "determined that it violates our guidelines,"

In a victory for the news media and others seeking electronic records from public agencies in California, the state Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the government cannot require them to pay the cost of removing confidential material from the records. The court unanimously overturned a state appeals court decision in 2018 that allowed the city of Hayward to charge the National Lawyers Guild more than $3,000 for copying and assembling body camera videos from Hayward police after a December 2014 protest march in Berkeley against police violence, in which some protesters were injured. Much of the cost was for identifying and deleting footage on personal police information

A Canadian court has ruled that the case of senior Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou, who is fighting extradition to the United States, can go forward. A judge found that the case meets the threshold of double criminality - meaning the charges would be crimes in both the US and Canada. The US wants Ms Meng to stand trial on charges linked to the alleged violation of US sanctions against Iran. Her case has created a rift between China and Canada. Her lead defence lawyer, Richard Peck, has argued in court that Canada is effectively being asked "to enforce US sanctions". But Associate Chief Justice Heather Holmes ruled

Democratic Colorado Gov. Jared Polis has restricted what personal information his state agencies will provide to federal immigration authorities, the latest measure he’s taken to protect Colorado’s illegal alien population. Polis quietly issued new policy guidance on Wednesday, directing state agencies not to provide Coloradans’s personal data to federal entities that intend to use the information for the sole purpose of immigration enforcement, according to the Colorado Sun. The new directive ultimately prevents Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers from obtaining such data unless they are investigating a crime or carrying a court order.

New York nursing homes were forced to accept more than 4,500 coronavirus patients from hospitals thanks to an order from Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a tally by The Associated Press found. Cuomo has come under heated criticism for his March 25 order forcing recovering COVID-19 patients into New York nursing homes — a decision blamed for the state’s high body count among the elderly. The governor waited roughly six weeks before reversing the order on May 10. The New York State Department of Health refused to release the results of an internal survey on how many coronavirus patients were placed in nursing homes across the state,

After receiving a formal warning from the United States Justice Department over church closures, California Gov. Gavin Newsom said his state is "weeks away" from allowing in-person religious services to resume. A group of federal attorneys wrote a letter to Newsom warning him that prolonged church closures likely violate the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment due to the fact that similar non-religious businesses are receiving the green light to reopen in Stage 2. "Laws that do not treat religious activities equally with comparable nonreligious activities are subject to heightened scrutiny under the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment," the letter states.

Hillary Clinton said Friday that President Trump’s response to the George Floyd-inspired protests in Minnesota is yet another reason for voters to give him the boot in the November election. “The president of the United States is calling for violence against American citizens,” Mrs. Clinton tweeted. “That is so wrong. We need honest reckoning and reconciliation.” “If you haven’t already joined the work to replace him in November, start now,” she said. Ms. Clinton, who lost to Mr. Trump in the 2016 election, appeared to be alluding to Mr. Trump’s early-morning comments regarding the unrest in the wake of Floyd’s death.

I started in local government, so I appreciate how mayors really do have a touch on what’s happening in the communities. They are extremely influential. So I asked them to help us engage with the constituents they have. We have 31 mayors off the bat. Many more joined on since then. We’re working in high schools because people who are first-time voters tend to be lifelong voters.

Chuck Hagel, a former GOP senator and Obama administration Defense secretary, says he's voting for Democrat Joe Biden over Republican Donald Trump in November. Hagel said during an interview with AL-Monitor's On the Middle East podcast that his choice is based on the belief that America continues to lose sight of its mission in Iraq and perhaps the entire Middle East. "We can't afford to just abandon Iraq," Hagel told show host Andrew Parasiliti. "I don't think our continued role should be to fight ISIS," on an indefinite basis.
