Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankison, and Myles Cosgrove still have not been arrested for the murder of Breonna Taylor. It’s been 166 days.
The cop that shot Jacob Blake three days ago in Kenosha has not been arrested.
Last night, an armed white kid in Kenosha shot three protesters, killing two of them, and the cops gave him a bottle of water. He has not been arrested. [Update: his name is Kyle Rittenhouse, he’s 17, and he’s been arrested.]
Meanwhile, the RNC continues to commit rampant violations of the Hatch Act, but Mark Meadows says “nobody outside the Beltway really cares.” Laws mean nothing to the GOP and they don’t care if you know it.
America stands on the brink of total annihilation and final fascist ascendency. Odds are good they’ll succeed. Then the future will be worse than most imagine, and it‘ll rival anything in the 20th Century. Dismiss this warning at your peril. They’ll eventually come for you too.

Fires in California, Oregon, Colorado. A category 4 hurricane headed for the Texas/Louisiana border. Ongoing civil unrest due to unchecked racial injustices. A pandemic out of control. Rising authoritarianism coupled with voter suppression. This summer has been the most chaotic I’ve seen in my lifetime and I desperately want it to end.
