Follow-up

right? i think there are some calls to get the feds to investigate, but given the political nature of the execution… i doubt they’ll take it up

as for the cops ( and corrections officers(!) ) who killed him, im sure they just need more training. we should give them more money so that they’ll be sure to get it right next time. /s

Another police reform fail. When are pols going to stop even trying to engage the GOP/GQP on meaningful issues? All do is undermine any attempt at change or improvement, because it messes with their 2022 election strategy:

The items comprising the Bactrian gold date back roughly two millenniums, RepublicWorld.com reported.

Many fear that if the Taliban are able to seize the items, they will destroy them in their attempt to cleanse the history, culture, and people of Afghanistan.

The items, discovered by archaeologists in the graves of wealthy northern Afghan nomads in the 1970s, reportedly show a variety of Persian and Greek influence.

Studies of biodiversity around the former Fukushima nuclear power plant in Japan have shown that a decade after the nuclear incident there in March 2011, the local wildlife, at least, is mostly thriving.

[…]

This removal of the human population has created a unique environment for wildlife, with nature having reclaimed the evacuated area, and with much of it now dominated by apparently indestructible radioactive boar/pig hybrids, as we noted back in July.

However, other species and ecosystems are also having a great time in the absence of humanity. Surveys have shown that along with the irascible porkers, rare and threatened species are returning to swamps and rice paddies in Fukushima prefecture, with biodiversity also surging on farmland in the area.

Two follow-ups for the price of one:

Second, with Oregon picking up a 6th congressional district, there’s been a curfluffle about redistricting resulting in a compromise that heavily favors Republicans. Which they voted against. And then whined about the result, in which they gain one safe district, one 50-50 district, and a maybe, whereas in the past they only had one district that had an increasingly purple hue:

“ The defendants argued that they are not subject to U.S. law since they are descendants of a mythic Moroccan nation that once covered much of the world, including America.”

“ Those prosecutors also tried to undercut the defendants’ claims that they were just peacefully traveling along I-95. According to the prosecutors, video recorded during the standoff reveals that the men can be heard talking about a sniper and loading a round into the weapon.

“‘If they start walking toward us, spread out. They’re acting funny and they’re moving funny. Where’s your arm at? You’re a sniper, so get your sniper and go to the front of the van,’” a prosecutor accused one of the group’s members of saying during the incident.”

“ The three defendants arraigned Tuesday submitted dozens of pieces of evidence, including a print-out of the Moroccan flag and a document entitled “The Zodiac Constitution.””
