The deadly breach of the Capitol's perimeter could delay the gradual reopening of the building's grounds to the public just as lawmakers were eyeing a return to more normal security measures following the Jan. 6 insurrection. Capitol Police officer William "Billy" Evans, an 18-year veteran of the force, was killed Friday when a man rammed his car into a barrier outside the Senate side of the building. The driver, identified as 25-year-old Noah Green.. (snip) ..the violent mob laid siege two month ago.

Why are the politicians’ lives more valuable than ours? They go out their way to protect themselves while tearing down the wall and allowing criminals to enter our country, many on the prowl for their next victim.

This is absolute rubbish. This guy was in a place that has normally been open. The barrier he rammed into after he ran into the two officers has been in place since 9/11. Re #3 there have been photos of the perp - some in articles posted here - for several days. He was a 25 year old black man, who’d been very athletic, and he apparently hooked up with Louis Farrakhan. Became a follower.

FTA: "There was no evidence that Green's actions were in any way related to the insurrection." Ha. There was no friggin "insurrection"! There was a relatively small disturbance that barely rose to the level being a riot. And, of course the AP ignores the obvious Islamic Jihad connections. In fact, the reality that our country has thousands of fanatic Muslims roaming its streets is the only possibly sensible reason I know of that they might consider having a security fence around the Capitol.

What "breach". You mean when the concrete barrier moved about an inch when he slammed into it?

Just days before President Biden kicks off a climate summit with world leaders, the United Nations World Meteorological Organization released a report Monday warning that “time is fast running out” to keep global temperatures in check. Titled “State of the Global Climate 2020,” the report finds that concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere continued to climb in 2020, despite lockdowns imposed to slow the spread of COVID-19. Last year, the report notes, was the third warmest on record, worsening the melting of glaciers and sea ice, the acidification of the world’s oceans and the severity of wildfires and hurricanes.

President Joe Biden is currently exploring the idea of canceling federal student loan debt, awaiting memos on how much he can do legally.The Biden White House tasked Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona to explore the issue, effectively stalling immediate action on the issue as activists increasingly push for him cancel the debt. White House chief of staff Ron Klain said Biden has not made a decision on the issue either way, as he is waiting for the policy memos.“Hopefully we’ll see that in the next few weeks, and then he’ll look at that legal authority; he’ll look at the policy issues around that and he’ll make a decision,”

Well, the New York Times still lives there, and appears to like being mired in the same Mr. Magooism.

The 12 jurors on the panel have as much time as they need to deliberate, but there is a possibility of a hung jury, which is a failure to reach at least one unanimous verdict. Chauvin is facing three charges, including second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree
