‘It was murder, we all saw it’: Internet horrified after mistrial in Walter Scott shooting by white cop

Published

on

On Monday, a South Carolina judge declared a mistrial in the case of former police officer Michael Slager. Slager was initially charged with murder in 2015 after shooting and killing an unarmed black man named Walter Scott.

The incident was all captured on video and shows Slager shooting Scott in the back multiple times as Scott tried to run away from him. Judge Clifton Newman declared the case a mistrial after jurors reported that they were undecided.

On Friday, Scott’s brother Anthony said, “We do believe within our hearts that we will see justice for my brother,” BuzzFeed News reports. He had said at an earlier time, “No human being deserves to be gunned down from the back.”

The world has watched too many times as American police officers get away with murdering unarmed black people across the country. Following the decision in Slager’s case, the internet responded with calls of “Black Lives Matter.” Some also pointed to San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s kneeling protest.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) had given the administration a Wednesday deadline to declassify the evidence, but Vice President Mike Pence's office ignored the deadline, so Schiff sent the evidence anyway.

At issue is a "supplemental submission" from Jennifer Williams, the special advisor for Europe and Russia in Pence's office.

The document contains information about a Sept. 18, 2019 phone call between pence and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Trump complained about Obama’s Hanukkah party — yet did it even worse himself

Published

on

President Donald Trump held the official White House Hanukkah party weeks before the holiday was slated to begin on Dec. 22.

Ironically, however, in 2011, Trump attacked President Barack Obama for holding an early Hanukkah party because he would be in Hawaii for the family's annual Christmas celebration.

"Why was the Hanukah celebration held in the White House two weeks early? @BarackObama wants to vacation in Hawaii in late December. Sad," Trump tweeted.

Just a few years later when it was his turn to hold a White House Hanukkah party, the goy-in-chief did it even earlier than Obama. In 2011, Obama held his party one week before the "eight crazy nights" began. Trump's party is 11 days out from Hanukkah. Trump lit the candles anyway.

While Cohen cooperated with investigators, he didn't do so immediately, instead he remained loyal to his former client. After it became clear that Cohen was being thrown under the bus, however, he began to cooperate with investigators.
