The @phoenixpolice officers who brutalized that black family also lied on their report to make it seem as if their lives were endangered. Turned off their body cameras. Bystanders with phones created the only path to accountability. The system is broken.

It should go without saying that the @phoenixpolice officers involved in this incident should be fired and prosecuted for assault, even if that seems unlikely. But the problem remains the system that allows for such abuse of power. I know this has been said. It bears repeating.

@Gavidis1 @CanyonRebootS @RollingStoneo, what and who do you consider to be “electable”? I’m just the reporter here, but it seems to me that if you like the policies she is putting forth, this is the time that candidates are allowing themselves to be vetted. Cynicism doesn’t drive turnout. It doesn’t win elections.

Elizabeth Warren has a new plan! If elected, she hopes to establish a $7 billion small business fund to help entrepreneurs of color close the racial wealth gap by starting 100,000 new businesses. That isn’t all it would do. Read my report in @RollingStone.

I keep seeing it reported that a House Judiciary subcommittee will have a hearing on reparations “for slavery.” I do hope they ask Coates and Glover about more than just what black folks are owed for slavery. That would imply emancipation ended the theft.

Prosecutors just dropped all criminal charges in the Flint water scandal and pledged to start the entire investigation from scratch. If it helps, cool. But the press should be able to ask questions now. They said, wait until June 28. Bullshit.

This is not merely the latest Viral Clip, nor would I think she'd want it to be. It is a clarion call. The Midwest is flooding right now, as is Mozambique. Climate change is ending American lives right now, and many more all around the world. Wake up.

Rashida Tlaib did nothing wrong.
Elijah Cummings needs a better friend.
Mark Meadows needs a dictionary.
So do many in the press.
She did not call him a racist.
She called the act racist.
Her statement was not racist.
Using black folks as props is racist.

Four years ago today, we lost Kalief Browder at 22. His suicide came a few years after his release from Rikers. He spent more than 1,000 days there, mostly in solitary confinement, awaiting a trial that never came. All over the alleged theft of a backpack.
