US Soldier Dies in Afghanistan | Michael Cable | End Wars

US Soldier Dies in Afghanistan | Michael Cable | End Wars | Law and News | Scoop.it
USA Lawyer's insight:

Imagine that 4 years ago, when you were 12 years old, men from Afghanistan came into the United States and took over the government.

California Law Officers Kill David Sal Silva | Law and News | Scoop.it
David Sal Silva was beaten in the face and upper body by as many as nine california law officers and their batons as he begged for his life.
USA Lawyer's insight:

A California father of four died Wednesday shortly after a group of police allegedly beat him with batons as he lay defenseless on the sidewalk. Cops, before confiscating witness’ cameras, also reportedly unleashed a canine unit on him.

David Sal Silva, 33, allegedly resisted when police approached him to ask if he was who neighbors called about to complain of an intoxicated man in the area. The officers called for backup and, witnesses told the Bakersfield Californian, Silva was soon being beaten in the face and upper body by as many as nine policemen and their batons. At least one of the cops reportedly held a German Shepherd on a leash nearby.
