Hundreds of protesters are marching from the 4th Precinct to Minneapolis City Hall following a Monday night shooting where 3 suspects allegedly fired into a crowd of Black Lives Matter protesters. Five suffered non-life threatening injuries.
"They took out a gun and popped him in the face" Minneapolis, MN - A ten-year-old boy has dramatically told how he saw a handcuffed man being shot in the head by police. Ze'Morion Dillon-Hokins told how he watched the shooting of Jamar Clark from just yards away and said: 'They took out a gun and "popped" him in the face.' Ze'Morion spoke to Daily Mail Online after giving a witness statement to police about Clark, whose death, 24 hours after the shooting, has led to protests in Minneapolis.
In the 14 years since the Sept. 11 terror attacks, nearly twice as many people have been killed in the United States by white supremacists and anti-government radicals than by Muslim jihadis, according to a new study.
White supremacists and anti-government radicals have killed 48 Americans, including last week’s deadly attack in South Carolina, versus 26 killings by Muslim radicals, according to a count by New America, a Washington research center.
Robert DesJarlait's insight:
A lot of swag talk about protecting hearth and home from Syrian refugees turned into imaginary ISIS terrorists running amok on U.S. streets. Therefore, Syrian refugees should be denied entry to the U.S. However, the danger isn't from the refugees; rather, the danger is from within, deep within.
Mark Ringgenberg and Dustin Schwarze, the two Minneapolis police officers involved in the fatal shooting of Jamar Clark, are due to come under intense public scrutiny while investigators and the public learn more about what happened on a north Minneapolis street corner early Sunday morning. Both cops joined the Minneapolis...
AMY GOODMAN: Nohemí has described herself as a proud first-generation Mexican American. Her parents are from Mexico. Can you talk about your response, or how she might have responded, knowing her well—you are her cousin—to this latest news in state after state in the United States, governors saying they will not accept Syrian refugees? I think the number we’re at now is something like in 27 states.
MIRIAM PADILLA: Right. You know, we feel that attacks on unarmed civilians to publicize a political objective is a huge crime against humanity. But as human beings and as first-generation students and as children who come from immigrants or parents who migrated from Mexico, we understand that, you know, some of the most—or the most victims that—or the ISIS victims are Muslims and Arabs themselves. And this is something that I think we—as much hurt and pain that we are going through, we have to analyze the entire situation as human beings and realize that it’s much more than just the attack in Paris.
Minnesota investigators on Tuesday released the names of two Minneapolis police officers who were involved in the shooting death of an unarmed black man over the weekend that sparked protests in the city and spurred a federal civil-rights investigation.
Indeed, basic research on the evolution of cancer’s arsenal remains crucial. “Knowing your enemy from its origins is the best way to fight it and win many battles,” Bosch said. Our goal, then, if we can’t slay the beast, is to learn enough about it that we render it harmless.
Due to colonization and the spread of Christianity throughout Native lands, Indigenous tattooing became taboo during the assimilation era. Even today, it’s discouraged. As a result, the practice went underground.
Robert DesJarlait's insight:
Interesting article, except for her use of the word "Chippewa." Who are the "Chippewa"? Apparently some Natives need to get decolonized enough to know who is who. (Chippewa - SMDH.)
The sheer volume of water disgorged by the dams and laden with mineral waste across nearly 500 km is staggering: 60 million cubic meters, the equivalent of 25,000 Olympic swimming pools or the volume carried by about 187 oil tankers.
President Dilma Rousseff compared the damage to the 2010 oil spill by BP PLC in the Gulf of Mexico and Environment Minister Izabella Teixeira called it an "environmental catastrophe."
Scientists say the sediment, which may contain chemicals used by the mine to reduce iron ore impurities, could alter the course of streams as they harden, reduce oxygen levels in the water and diminish the fertility of riverbanks and farmland where floodwater passed.
This sort of violence, whether it’s done by the state or individual actors, is intended to frighten, to produce cowardice in the people fighting for answers in the death of yet another black person killed by the police. This is the kind of violence that is meant to remind black people of their place. It’s the defense of a racist status quo.
We, as Lakota speakers need to know those things and to remind outsiders coming in who seemingly are intent on appropriating the last thing we have (remember what happened to the Lakota Sun Dance in the last decades of the last century?) Appropriation is real and it is still happening at Pine Ridge, this time, it is the language that is being taken from us to be put into large language databases, out in places like Bloomington, Ind. The real question is: Why?
The problem with outsiders is they gloss over things like dialects, even the difference between a man and woman speaker (the humor in recalling Kevin Costner learning the wrong gender ending for the film he directed). When I looked at the board of the nonprofit working diligently on the new grammar, the language institute currently operating in the state of South Dakota, a glaring omission is the lack of a woman on the board. Do outsiders really believe that our language is spoken only by men?
Ezra Hyland, longtime Minneapolis resident, said he stands in solidarity with any organization that focuses on a beloved community and restoration. However, he believes not everyone who has been present at the protests are there for that cause.
"Since Sunday I have been out almost every day and I have witnessed people throwing rocks at the police," he said. "I witnessed last night people throwing rocks and the police shooting tear gas. I've witnessed people arguing with the family of Jamar Clark about who is his true family and who has the right to speak for him. I've witnessed people threatening to shoot police officers. Threatening community members with violence. Those things are not within the spirit of Dr. King."
Hyland said he believes people are using this opportunity -- a place that's supposed to be peaceful -- to get out their personal frustrations and their desires for violence.
"I also hope and pray that the people who are committed to violence and who are not part of the true aims of Black Lives Matter to remove themselves from the situation," he said.
There was an interesting moment as Jamar Clark's sister drove up on the scene as protesters were shouting down police. Javille Burns opened her window and addressed protesters, clearly angry, asking them what their goal was. "You're pissing people off," she shouted. "These officers can't do nothing for you... you're ignorant." When one protester tried to engage her, Burns jumped out of the car and ran at him. "That's my brother that got shot... my blood (expletive) brother!"
The release of this report runs parallel to a large march led by Lakota People’s Law Project Attorney Chase Iron Eyes, who has led the Native Lives Matter movement that continues to gather momentum in Rapid City, South Dakota.
Here's another reason for you to kick the butt. Research conducted at AIIMS has showed that men who smoke or consume tobacco in other forms are more likely to father children suffering from cancer

I'm not quite sure of the validity of this study. I usually cross reference articles/studies such as this with other cancer sources. Cancer Research UK provides some of the best analysis of studies/articles. Nevertheless, I've decided to post this.
