Cops indicted for beating homeless black man with flashlights and letting dog bite him

Published

on

On April 4th, 29-year-old Kyron Dwain Hinton was crossing the street when he was approached by officers from the Wake County Sheriff’s office. Hinton had just left a sweepstakes parlor, according to the News Observer. He was homeless at the time.

The three officers allegedly attacked him with their flashlights and allowed their dog to bite him. Today, a Wake County  grand jury indicted them on charges of felony assault and the failure to willfully discharge duties.

Hinton has said he presented no threat to the officers, though he admits to being mad. “I was angry,” he’s said, according to the Observer. “I didn’t say I wasn’t, and I was moving my arms and hands from side to side, but not with a threatening action.”

At a press conference today civil rights advocates praised the indictment as a good first step to achieving justice for Hinton.

“We’re part of justice being served,” said Dawn Balgrove, executive director of the Carolina Justice Policy Center, at Hinton’s side during a press conference. “While we are excited, and happy and vindicated, for this indictment, this is not where the story ends. This indictment is where the story and the fight really begins.”

Published

It's clear that Fox News and other right-wing reporters are trying to create boogymen in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A new analysis by CNN media reporter Brian Stelter, revealed that the conservative network has said Ocasio-Cortez's name more than CNN and MSNBC combined.

"First, Ocasio-Cortez and her "Squad" mate Ilhan Omar have been talked about a lot more on Fox than on other cable news channels this year," Stelter wrote. "Second, the freshmen have been getting more attention on cable than seasoned leaders of the Democratic Party."

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"
