With so much going on in our world, we sometimes miss important issues. Please feel free to share any headlines or new developments we may have missed providing they come from reliable and credible sources.  In other words, please do not post any missed headlines form far right ‘news’ sources or regurgitate their Russian propaganda unless you’re trying to point out that the far-right extremist in our country and elsewhere actually believe their own BS or Russian disinformation.   The same applies to what is currently happening in Israel. We also ask that you provide a link to your source so folks can read it if they want. Please do not make any claims that you cannot factually validate or verify.

From the MarKODA Files:

Six former Mississippi police officers who pleaded guilty to torturing two Black men in an attack that lasted more than two hours are being sentenced this week. The officers were part of the so-called “Goon Squad.” They raided a home last January, shot one of the men and planted drugs and a gun at the scene to cover it up. U.S. District Judge Tom Lee sentenced former sheriff’s deputy Hunter Elward yesterday to 20 years in prison and former lieutenant Jeffrey Middleton, who devised the group’s cover-up plan, to 17.5 years in prison.

  • NPR Network reporter Michael McEwen was in the courtroom, where he says prosecutors revealed Middleton told his fellow officers he would have them killed if they told anyone what happened. Jenkins, who was shot in the mouth, says he is desperate to put this period behind him. Eddie Parker, who was sexually assaulted and threatened, says he still struggles with the effects of that night and has trouble falling asleep or going out in public.
