‘Get racists off the streets’: South Bend voters shout down Buttigieg over police shooting at fiery town hall

Published

on

Last week’s police-involved shooting left one unarmed Black man dead and South Bend, Indiana residents are demanding answers.

During a town hall with the police chief and Mayor Pete Buttigieg, furious residents demanded action. But one woman, in particular, spoke out about the oppression communities of color face.

“I don’t understand how you expect anyone to talk about respect in an oppressed society,” she told the city leaders. “What is respect in an oppressed society? How can you blame the victims of last night in an oppressed society?”

She was referencing a shooting that occurred early Sunday at 2 a.m. In a city where people of color feel disrespected and lack equality, being respectful to the citizens and police on both sides of the argument isn’t possible, she seemed to argue.

“So what you can do today, and I’m not playing, and I got two minutes, what you can do today, there are ways to assess the way people think,” she noted. “Do you understand? Get the people that are racist off the streets. Reorganize your department. You can do that by Friday!”

There are computer programs that are often used in research to determine if racism can be detected.

Buttigieg repeated multiple times that he would take responsibility for various things.

Fears grow on digital surveillance: US survey

Published

on

Americans are increasingly fearful of monitoring of their online and offline activities, both by governments and private companies, a survey showed Friday.

The Pew Research Center report said more than 60 percent of US adults believe it is impossible to go about daily life without having personal information collected by companies or the government.

Most Americans are uneasy about how their data is collected and used: 79 percent said they are not comfortable about the handling of their information by private firms, and 69 percent said the same of the government.

Seven in 10 surveyed said they think their personal data is less secure than five years ago, while only six percent said it is more secure, the report found.

CNN legal analysts rip apart Jim Jordan’s ‘nonsensical’ defense of Trump witness intimidation

Published

on

CNN legal analyst Elie Honig blasted Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) for arguing that President Donald Trump hadn't engaged in witness intimidation by tweeting attacks on a former ambassador as she testified against him in the impeachment inquiry.

Jordan argued the tweet can't be witness intimidation because Marie Yovanovitch wouldn't have known about the attack if Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) hadn't read it to her, but Honig said the GOP lawmaker's claim was ridiculous.

"His point is nonsensical," Honig said. "Of course, she was going to find out about a tweet that went out to 60 million people-plus. The law covers any way you look regarding timing."
