McKinney, Texas, Girl Who Was Slammed to the Ground by Police at a Pool Party in 2015 Wins Settlement

Dajerria Becton, who was 15 years old at the time, back in 2015, was last seen in a viral video getting wrestled to the ground by then-McKinney, Texas, Police Officer Eric Casebolt. He later resigned from the force.

Casebolt was seen dragging Dajerria by the hair, slamming her to the ground, pinning her down and then handcuffing her, all while she called out for someone to call her mother.

Following the incident, Dajerria and her caregiver, Shashona Becton, sued the Police Department and the city of McKinney for $5 million. According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, under the terms of the settlement, the Bectons, as well as other plaintiffs in the case, were awarded a total of $184,850 last month, with $148,850 of that amount going to Dajerria.

— Media Matters

If CNN/MSNBC had covered “the good news on the economy” during Obama Admin, especially after the econ’s recovery in the last few years including the stock market, Faux News would have spit rage, said the econ reports were fake, said the stock market was a bubble, claimed that media was trying to boost Obama, etc.

Actually that’s what Faux did say all during the Obama era.

Good call. He just has the look of the squirmy type. I’ve read a couple profiles on Miller now and it tells me a lot about the Republican Party that he’s gotten as far as he did. I went to HS a year behind a guy who ended up working for Obama in a lower ranking position than Miller is for Trump but was not the kind of person Miller was in school. Miller has more horror stories about his youth than Ted Cruz does and that says something.

The economy is still chugging along thanks to the economic policies inherited by Trump. The GOP tax scam hasn’t fully worked its way into the economy because people aren’t seeing the benefit. They don’t optimize their withholding and their tax refunds will only show next April.

All the while, millions are losing health coverage and the GOP is angling to destroy what’s left of Obamacare, including all the protections for preexisting conditions - actions that wont show up on the budget line, but which will drag the economy as people have medically induced bankruptcies and hospital bankruptcies resume as indigent care rises.

I kept giving her the benefit of the doubt, but this is just a bridge too far.

I am not going to label myself as a Melania hater, but I don’t care one bit for her and what she has to say.

She married a guy that is basically a home wrecker and it is well documented about his past to the point it would be easy for her to know who and what he is.

And, when she asked about wanting to see the birth certificate on a TV talk show that was a bridge too far.

She covered for him on the Inside Hollywood tape saying he was recorded secretly and it was only ‘boy talk.’

She bought in…that was enough for me to distrust her. She is not stupid. She knows what she is doing.

To me, that jacket was probably intended for the media to see it.

She wants the controversy and it helps cover for her bozo husband by taking away some internet time on his current crop of problems.

Zoo news for animal lovers.

The Columbus Zoo has announced they have two baby giraffes on the way. They are expected this fall. Since the gestation is so long, they waited to announce it to be sure of delivery time, etc.

The link goes to a small story about the announcement, but there is also a nice long video of the Zoo staff working with the zoo’s giraffes on World Giraffe Day. I can’t find a way to embed the video as it must be linked from Facebook or something.

Animal lovers will find the video fun and educational too. And it shows how nice the Zoo is and how popular this time of the year.

NBC4i - Two giraffes pregnant at Columbus Zoo

POWELL, OH (WCMH) — The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium will be welcoming two more giraffes this fall.

According to the zoo, two giraffes, Cami and Zuri, are pregnant and due August and September.

Giraffes have a gestation period of more than 470 days, so the zoo has been waiting a while to make the announcement.

The announcement was made Thursday during a special at the zoo during World Giraffe Day.

You are assuming an appeal will happen….

The judge didn’t do away with the CFPA but instead ordered it removed from the case:

For the foregoing reasons, Defendants’ motion (ECF No. 39) is DENIED. Because Plaintiff Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is unconstitutionally structured and lacks authority to bring claims under the CFPA, the Clerk of Court shall terminate
Plaintiff Consumer Financial Protection Bureau as a party to this action.

It would be completely crazy for the Trump administration to not appeal the order (they may dislike the CFPA, but once they find a way to use it to their own ends, they’re not going to like this ruling being thrown in their faces).

Secondly, the State of New York is a plaintiff in the case as well, they may have standing for an appeal because this ruling so completely out of line with precedent (for fuck’s sake, she disagrees with an en banc ruling).

I used to really like Krauthammer back in the day, but his defiant, arrogant attitude to the criticism of the disaster of the Iraq War that he led in promoting, and then completely losing his marbles during the eight years of Obama became too much for me, leading me to tune him out completely years ago.

You know it’s been pretty down hill for GOP first spouse nominees ever since Ann Romney. Cindy McCain seemed alright enough but Ann and Melania. As I’ve said, Romney is more close to Trump than he thinks.

They all, including Cindy, DO AS THEY ARE TOLD. How refreshing it was to hear Barack Obama explaining that Michelle had the last word on whether or not he ran for President. He trusted her and allowed her to make her own decisions as needed.

Right, that’s usually good practice. But I have a different approach - when deploying Javascript code I always pass it through the Google Closure Compiler, which detects if you’re using ES6 features and adds polyfills for whatever you need to stay backward compatible. So I don’t need to worry about ES5 or earlier when writing the code.

Hi Lizards,

The Melania jacket thing really raises my blood pressure.

I am almost thinking that it was directed towards Donald, especially because of his lame explanation tweet. It was in such bad taste that it doesn’t matter who it was directed to because the topic was defenseless children being ripped out of their parent’s hands and put into concentration camps.

I am over Melania. If she wants to do something good then let her say so, I’m done reading her tea leaves.

Alison Tolman.She was Molly Solverson in one season of Fargo; she’s currently on Good Girls.

…The guardians didn’t step more than two feet away from the kid. One of the four was an armed police officer. I thought, Does it take an army of adult men to take care of one elementary schooler? I walked over to the boy, crouched down, and asked him, in Spanish, ‘How do you feel?’ ‘Sad,’ he said.

“The boy had been in custody for over a month.
…….

…I asked the ‘clinician’, ‘When is this child going to be reunited with his parents?’ He was evasive. First it was ‘Oh, well, we don’t know.’ And then it was ‘Well, he won’t be reunited with his parents unless he behaves.’
……
…While I held him, I heard the men standing behind me muttering that I was ‘rewarding his bad behavior.’ Thankfully, it was in English, so I don’t think the boy understood what they were saying, but it just revealed their attitudes toward these kids.”

These people have set themselves up to be abusers and are showing signs of rationalizing any arbitrarily cruel treatment of the children in their custody.

Kid A what might you think of this?

(ATHENS, GA.,) The National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) calls on all politicians who visit migrant child detention facilities to insist on being accompanied by visual journalists and to insist that Immigration and Customs Enforcement permits unfettered access to those facilities for all journalists.

We also call on news media organizations to decline to publish handout photographs from the government or others when full and meaningful visual access is denied.

When important issues face a nation, and the truth must be ascertained, images - taken by journalists who adhere to strict codes of ethics - truly matter. The only photographs the nation has seen from inside those facilities have come from the government.

This is unacceptable. We believe that access to those facilities by journalists is both appropriate and warranted. The nation should not be relegated to relying solely on governmental depictions when it comes to such matters of public concern.

Civil liberties. In the age of the internet, government’s ability to look into our lives has exponentially increased, but I think the Fourth Amendment is still vital as a cornerstone to liberty.

Protecting the unique look and feel of the Lowcountry. My position on the issue of offshore drilling and seismic testing is representative of this, as are a host of environmentally-friendly votes that I’ve taken during my time in Congress.

The Trump administration wanted the images on cable news of the First Lady visiting Upbring New Hope Children’s Shelter. They staged quite a photo-op at the shelter. The problem is the White House then canceled the trip to the real detention center where children are being caged.

The White House blamed flash flooding for their cancelation of the visit to the detention center, but locals knew of the flash flooding yesterday, which leads one to suspect that the plan was always for Trump to visit the nice shelter for the cameras and then return back to Washington.

The administration had already banned reporters from taking photographs or video of Trump at the detention center. According to the White House Press Pool as provided to PoliticusUSA, ” The tours will be pen and pad only for the pool. No photos or audio, for the safety and privacy of children, we are told.”

Trump is suddenly worried about the safety and the privacy of children being kept in cages. Sure, he is.

Monmouth University polled the district using two distinct likely voter projections—one assuming a typical midterm electorate turns out in November, and another predicting a Democratic surge in opposition to Trump.

In the typical midterm model, Ojeda leads state Del. Carol Miller (R) by 6 points, 48 percent to 39 percent. His lead grows to 9 points when screening for a Democratic surge.

Patrick Murray, the director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, pegged the lead on Ojeda’s personal story. He’s a former Army paratrooper who was been a vocal supporter of the state teacher’s strike. While he voted for President Trump in 2016, he’s been open with his disagreements with the president.

“Unlike other hotly contested House races in the country where dislike of the president is giving Democrats a boost, this West Virginia district seems to be competitive because the Democratic candidate has his own populist persona. But neither candidate is particularly well know yet, so this dynamic could change,” Murray said.

The majority of voters has no opinion on either candidate. Among those who do have opinions, both candidates have a double-digit net-favorability rating.

Albert Einstein was a refugee from Nazi Germany.

And he almost didn’t get in; J Edgar Hoover wanted him banned as a Communist.

So Einstein’s wife called the chairs of physics departments at all the Ivy League colleges, and a half dozen rabbis from the most prominent synagogues, had all of them call the New York Times and raise a huge stink. Then the consul he’d been interviewing with decided “fuck j edgar” and gave him his visa anyway. Because, y’know, Einstein. Already well-known as The Smartest Man in the World.

OK, all you great political minds. Mark Sanford is obviously not a fan of the yam, and now that he’s lost his primary, he obviously should have no more fucks to give. And, some of Sanford’s strongest stances have been opposition to offshore drilling (which the Trumpette who beat him is all for) and other environmental issues.

Anybody have any clever ideas of how we can persuade him to endorse the Dem, Joe Cunningham, who’s running for his seat?

Can you find Sanford voters that are going to vote for Cunningham due to Republican politics, do a video of them with their stories and their asking Sanford to do the right thing for America…and we trust you will because that is why we voted for you in the past. Endorsing and voting for Cunningham is the right thing to do, for GOOD Republicans. Then put it out in the media and send him a copy.

I was trying to find the link I had read before, but a lot of evangelicals adopt minorities thinking they can raise the children “correctly”, meaning colorblind. Which not only means ignoring a side of the child’s identity, but putting them out of place in the rest of the world.

One of the first kids I coached in basketball was a young black kid who was adopted by a white family. We really liked the kid. He was a good listener, teammate, and while he didn’t have the most natural game on the team, He begged us to pick him again if possible but someone saw his potential and snagged him up. he did briefly make the high school freshman or JV team. We played his team this winter in House league and he was a big part of why we lost. I joshed with him about where that downtown ability was when we had him five years ago. He’s got a good head on his shoulders. I’m sure he’ll do well wherever he goes in life.

I think that’s why this whole thing has been toughest for parents or those who know young children. I’ve been seeing my niece in a lot of those kids. I spent a good part of this evening with her, my brother, sister in law, and a friend of sil’s playing with this cool toy in the yard. My niece loved it and she was playing with her echo too. It just makes me a little sad because I want that life for all kids. A life free of fear of not knowing about where their parents are and just enjoying a beautiful summer night.

Yes exactly. All of this. I cover at my sisters home daycare every few weeks or so when needed and the amount of care, diligence, love and hardwork that goes into creating a healthy environment is staggering. The rewards are great too. I just can’t imagine standing there and doing nothing to protect these kids. I do not understand all of the people who were so complicit and continue to be.

Can you find Sanford voters that are going to vote for Cunningham due to Republican politics, do a video of them with their stories and their asking Sanford to do the right thing for America…and we trust you will because that is why we voted for you in the past. Endorsing and voting for Cunningham is the right thing to do, for GOOD Republicans. Then put it out in the media and send him a copy.

I LIKE it, and will see what I can do to further that idea. Also, I’m thinking of a postcard campaign—get people to send beach postcards by the thousands to Sanford about fighting offshore drilling. (Lovely KatieTrumpette is all in on the drill baby drill bandwagon)

Thanks—will start on all of this tomorrow.

They were the Nuremberg Laws after all. We need laws but don’t let anyone ever tell you to just follow the law.

Before the Civil War, slavers used Romans to argue God wanted the Fugitive Slave Act enforced, just like Sessions and Sanders did.

Unfortunately her mother was there to tell us in front of her that she was also adopted, and had been a great disappointment.

Does he have or want contact with her? I honestly have no idea how I’d feel if adopted about that. It might be hard not to have some resentment but at the same time if my adopted parents gave me a good life and you did for your children, understanding.

My second wife was adopted. After she died, I took on the mission of trying to find her birth mother. It was very tough, but I succeeded with the help of a private detective. I learned that she had in fact been looking for the baby she gave up in 1958 and I decided to contact her. I eventually met her, which I was hesitant to do because it would mean sharing the sad news about her daughter. She was sad to hear it, of course, but over-joyed to meet our daughter. She also wanted to know everything it was possible to know about her daughter. I sent copies of everything I have about her, transcripts, newspaper clippings, photos. My parents are dead, as are my wife’s adoptive parents. My daughter still has a grandparent though, in the form of the lady who gave birth to her mother.

Besides my wife, I have also mentioned the girl I nearly married a few years before, the one whose fundy parents objected to the marriage because I was divorced. She, too, was adopted and was literally a foundling: Somebody left her on her future parents’ doorstep when she was 3 or 4 days old. Things were simpler in those days, and they were prominent people in a small town, so a legal adoption was easy to arrange. Her actual parentage was the subject of much local gossip and apparently is to this day. She looks Hispanic and a DNA test eventually confirmed this, but nobody knows who the birth parents really were or they aren’t telling if they do.

No doubt and their defense against a bill that would save even more lives is still gross. Too many high profile cases in Cali mimmick parts of what is so broken with our carceral state all over the country.
