    The Minneapolis Charter Commission wisely, if unpredictably, told the Minneapolis City Council that its plan to reimagine public safety was not ready to go on the ballot this November. Predictably, this was met with outrage from the activist class who insisted the delay was an example of democracy denied. Jeremiah Ellison, for example, a council member in favor of abolishing the police department to be replaced by a Department of Happy Thoughts and Good Wishes, said of the commission’s decision, “this is not democracy. In a democracy the people decide. But I guess today the Charter Commission decided otherwise.” Ellison is wrong. The way it works is that the charter is the city’s constitution. To amend it requires adult thinking,...

    Bill Maher, the longtime political satirist and host of HBO’s Real Time, harbors an Ahab-like obsession with “cancel culture”—the theory that prominent “politically incorrect” (to borrow his catchphrase) or “controversial” folks are being pushed out of their jobs by bad-faith online mobs. This likely stems from the time when, six days after the 9/11 attacks, Maher eventually had his show Politically Incorrect canceled by Sinclair after calling the terrorists involved “not cowardly” for “staying in the airplane when it hits the building,” a statement that had come on the heels of Maher comparing his dogs to “retarded children.” In a matter of months, however, he was given a brand-new show by HBO, which he’s hosted for the last 17...

    As the reports of domestic abuse soar around the world amid coronavirus lockdowns, frontline service providers say it's particularly hard for survivors in Russia — where domestic abuse isn't classified as a unique crime — to access help. "If they [victims] contact the police and they do nothing, then we all know that abuse will get even more severe," said Marina Pisklakova-Parker, who founded the first domestic abuse helpline in Russia in 1993 and currently runs the chuman rights organization, the Anna Center. Domestic abuse was partially decriminalized in Russia in 2017, meaning that if a husband hits a wife for the first time, and she doesn't need to be hospitalized, it's an administrative rather than a criminal offense. If a...

The Spokesman-Review reported that 36-year-old Annamarie L. Kirkpatrick was cited for shoplifting, a gross misdemeanor.

(AP) — The American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon has filed a class-action lawsuit against Portland Police and the city on behalf of journalists and legal observers who they say were targeted and attacked by the police while documenting protests.

    RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — The governor of Brazil’s Amazonas state was targeted by a police raid on Tuesday over allegations of corruption related to COVID-19 spending. Federal police ordered the preventive detention of eight people and raided more than a dozen addresses of people linked to Gov.

The state in the northern region of the Amazon rainforest has been one of the nation’s hardest-hit. Its capital, Manaus, was devastated by the virus, with patients turned away from full intensive-care units, scores of people dying at home and the city burying coffins in mass...
    The Detroit cops seen driving through protesters in viral video thought they were being “fired upon,” their police chief said as his department released dramatic dashcam footage of the chaos. Chief James Craig told a press conference that two marked squad vehicles were parked to block protesters from going down a main road when they were set upon by 25 to 30 “agitators” Sunday night. Several of the group “exhibiting violent behavior” then “jumped on the hood of the car,” he said, pointing to the released dashcam footage which showed some jumping on, flying off as the squad car sped away. The main vehicle being surrounded initially tried “slowly moving” through the angry crowd — but feared the worse when...

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Lawyers from the Virginia branch of the American Civil Liberties Union have filed an emergency request to bar police in the state from using chemical irritants or other devices to disperse protesters. News outlets report ACLU attorneys argued in a Richmond court Monday that police violated protesters’ constitutional rights to speech by using these devices to disperse a protest outside city hall on June 23. On Twitter that night, Richmond police said the protests were deemed unlawful because protesters were blocking traffic and entrances to buildings. A city attorney said barring use of such devices is an impediment to police. Copyright © 2020 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, written...

    Downtown Portland businesses destroyed by looters a month ago say cops did nothing to stop the thieves — and that they still feel abandoned by police and city officials, according to a new report. Rioters invaded the once-vibrant retail district during a five-hour looting spree on May 30 that cleaned out stores like the family-owned Kassab Jewelers, The Oregonian reported. The business’ owners were horrified as they watched surveillance video showing 70 to 100 people ransacking the shop during that first night of demonstrations over George Floyd’s police killing. Cops had told them they were coming to respond — but never did, the family claims. “We felt as if we had to fend for our ourselves, that we were...

The raid was similar to one last October that involved another investigation into a separate department over the purchase of a building in a posh area of London.

Vatican magistrates ordered the raid following a tip from the office of the general auditor, the statement said, without giving details....
    SANTA CRUZ — A 46-year-old Black man, reportedly a traveling musician hailing from Jamaica, remained hospitalized Monday recovering from serious but not life-threatening injuries after a violent weekend altercation under investigation as a possible race-based hate crime. Santa Cruz Police Department Lt. Warren Barry said a motive for the reportedly unprovoked attack, occurring around 2:30 a.m. Sunday in front of an Ocean Street motel near the Highway 17 onramp, remained unclear. However, an eye-witness account of the encounter between Chavez and the victim “strongly leaned, in our belief, towards a hate crime,” Barry said. “Any acts of threats or violence or property damage, harassment, intimidation or other crimes motivated by hate or bias, we look at very seriously and we...

    Says an MPR story, “The Hennepin County judge overseeing the trial of four former police officers charged in the killing of George Floyd last month warned elected officials against making public statements about the merits of the case, saying they endanger the defendants’ right to a fair trial and could lead to a change in venue.

    Campaigners mourned 'the end of Hong Kong as we know it' today after China passed a sweeping new national security law which critics say will smother the city's freedoms.  The legislation was unanimously approved by China's rubber-stamp parliament, little more than six weeks after it was first unveiled.   'It marks the end of Hong Kong that the world knew before,' said democracy campaigner Joshua Wong, adding that 'sweeping powers and ill-defined law' would make Hong Kong into a 'secret police state'.  China promised the city 50 years of freedoms when it was handed over from British rule in 1997, but the UK, US, European Union and UN have all voiced fears that the new law will be used to stifle...

              This weekend, citizens from across the state gathered at Nashville’s Legislative Plaza Sunday to support law enforcement, but not without sparring verbally with left-wing protestors — the same protestors who have occupied that space for weeks. Pro-police demonstrators formally called their event “The Back the Badge Rally.” Left-wing protestors shouted profanities against both the police and U.S. President Donald Trump. But folks on the other side of the plaza held signs saying how much they supported police. They waved American flags. They sang “Bad Boys,” the theme to the television show COPS. They asked drivers passing by to wave if they too appreciated law enforcement. And, unlike the people on the opposite end...

    SAN JOSE — As the San Jose Police Department reels in scandal after the emergence of officers’ bigoted and anti-Muslim social-media comments, it has the evoked the memory of a notorious incident when another San Jose officer was fired for making violent and threatening remarks directed at Black Lives Matter supporters. In that case, the officer got his job back in arbitration and he remains with the department, albeit in administrative duty. But in the new scandal — which has resulted in four active SJPD officers getting benched, and the FBI being summoned in to help investigate — there is a groundswell from civil-rights advocates and public officials demanding that the outcome be different this time around. “The difference with these...

In a statement, the university said in part that its goal was to “reduce as much as possible...
