"Please Forgive Me," Said Elijah McClain As Three Cops Murdered Him
Another one. This week in Colorado, three cops were removed from active duty and the governor announced a new investigation into the death last year of Elijah McClain, a slight, gentle, 23-year-old massage therapist who was walking home from a store listening to music when the cops stopped, choked and killed him for looking "suspicious," also black. The actions came after millions of people called, posted and signed a petition to protest the state's inaction. So yes: Speak up.

More Shocking Than All the Lies: The Leading Cause of (Far Too Often Needless) Death In America
Huh. Despite our estimable leader's willful, febrile good cheer - all good, no virus, you're the virus, no more testing, let's go shopping! - COVID-19 is skyrocketing. We just saw the highest single-day surge in new cases - 38,115 nationwide - with new outbreaks in multiple re-opened states - Texas, Arizona, Florida - and the CDC now warns we could have 20 million cases, or 10 times those reported. Who could/should have seen it coming? Damning new ads remind us: The guy guilty of mass murder.

Unfit: Bully Billy Barr
After Mueller, Flynn, Stone and countless acts of obstruction of justice, lawless goon and AG William Barr may have finally gone a brazen crime too far when he fired Geoffrey Berman for doing his job. Now the New York Bar Association and most of Barr's former legal colleagues are calling for him to be disbarred, censured, investigated and otherwise brought down for being what a teenage schoolmate exposes as "a lifelong bully, racist and fascist" and "one of the truly evil figures of our day."

Bravo You Heroes: Columbus OH Police Mace Double Amputee, Take His Legs, Leave Him Writhing
In a new study that manages to be both shocking and grimly unsurprising, researchers found police in 20 U.S. cities fail to meet even the most basic international human rights standards governing lethal force. The only stunner: They didn't include Columbus, OH, where rioting sadists have been determinedly ramming bikes into and then macing peaceful protesters - now including a young double amputee, whose prosthetics the cops sei z ed in what was deemed "a new level of abhorrent."

President of Country Drinks Glass of Water With One Hand, (Small) Crowd Goes Wild
Well that was a night. Trump's rally, which supposedly got a million ticket requests, filled less than half its 19,000 seats. Attendance was so sparse they took down the outside stage for a non-existent "overflow" crowd. He spewed and rambled. The highlights: He staggered down an imaginary ramp, and shakily, single-handedly drank a glass of water from a big boy cup, drawing semi-thunderous cheers. The bar is now officially so low it's underground.

Coronapalooza: The Great White Hope and the Perfect Deadly Storm
Despite warnings from every rational person on earth it's "extraordinarily dangerous," Trump still went to Tulsa to pack thousands of immeasurably stupid cult members into an enclosed space in a state where lethal virus numbers are spiking because his handlers say he's been blue and, after the rally, "he's going to be in a much better mood," never mind the trail of bodies. So now we're captive therapists to a pathological narcissist looking for love in all the wrong places.

A Walk In the (Fascist) Park
Turns out our esteemed leader's campaigning for re-election using Nazi concentration camp symbols marks the second recent time he's flaunted his long, coy dalliance with fascism. After he lurched through Lafayette Park to hold an upside-down Bible, he praised brutal attacks on peaceful protesters with the little-noted boast that the " agitators and anarchists were handled VERY easily by (the) D.C. Police & S.S. GREAT JOB!" Wait, great job by the S.S.? Yeah, nothing to see here.

The Taste of Subservience
Sign of the evolving times: Aunt Jemima, the cringey racist, minstrel-based "mammy" figure on the classic fake maple syrup of our childhoods - and for some white people, their only black friend - is about to go. Amidst national protests for racial justice, parent company Quaker Oats says it will upgrade the name and image on its well-camouflaged corn syrup to "reflect our values and meet our consumers' expectations." Word on the street: Uncle Ben's is next. They will not be missed.

The More Israelis Breathe, the More Palestinians Choke: IDF Soldiers Kill Autistic Man For No Discernible Reason
In a grisly reminder America's not the only home to state racism and deadly abuse by those wielding its power, Israeli soldiers killed Iyad Halak, an autistic Palestinian man - to his father, "a sick boy" - who lay on the ground wounded and terrified as his caregiver shouted for five minutes in Hebrew and Arabic that he was disabled. Despite protests citing bleak parallels with George Floyd's death, Halak's mother expects no solace from an Israel where, "Justice does not exist."

Rearranging the Deck Chairs on COVID, Race, Polls and the Great American Experiment
Bunker Boy is some good at denial, anyway. At a determinedly all-white racial justice event he cited "bad apples" and said of erasing bigotry, "It’ll go very easily.” He's virtually ignoring an "American fiasco" of two million COVID cases except for warning rally attendees they're on their own. He called bad polls "a stunt." And now, too lazy to write a GOP platform, he's going with 2016's, complete with three dozen denunciations of "the current president." There's truly no there there.
