Description

Police kill Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta as Republicans in Congress balk at reform proposals, Trump moves the date of his Juneteenth MAGA rally even as some advisors suggest he attack the Black Lives Matter movement, and Covid cases rise in 22 states as the President pretends the pandemic is over. Then ACLU attorney Chase Strangio talks to Jon L. about the landmark Supreme Court ruling on LGBTQ rights, and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Wesley Lowrey discusses his reporting on the nationwide protests.

@6:10: "Murdered in cold blood"?! WTF are you talking about?! Neither "murder" nor "cold blood" applies to that shooting. And then you throw in accusations of racism just for the fun of it? Are you idiots capable of responsibly discussing a topic or do you just throw gasoline on fires?

More shallow commentary from well intentioned but ill-informed hosts who are in way over their heads the moment they attempt to discuss substance rather than political gamesmanship. The discussion of the shooting of Mr. Brooks yet again dangerously mischaracterizes an event for the sake of virtue-signalling and rabble-rousing. If you take an officer's weapon and fire it at him, expect to be shot. That doesn't sound crazy to me.

All the negatives they talk about for police unions can be extended to similar (but not exact) negatives for all public sector unions, including teachers unions. The goal of a union is to lobby for conditions favorable to the members of that lobby. It's the same for private and public unions. In private industry it creates less favorable conditions for the private industry. In public sector unions it creates less favorable conditions for the public.

They say twice that Mr. Brooks' only crime was falling asleep in his car, but neglect DUI, resisting arrest, and assaulting an officer. I won't even harp on him firing the taser because that's such a huge point of contention, but the first 3 happened and claiming he was killed for falling asleep in his car is a flat lie.

There's a problem with the fight over qualified immunity. qualified immunity is used in civil and criminal cases. most people don't understand that. So when people talk about getting rid of it, they need to focus on getting rid of it in criminal contexts, and limiting it in civil liability suits. getting rid of it altogether is just plainly a bad idea.
