She made a mistake calling the police. Moments after sheriff’s deputies armed with assault rifles arrived, Justin Way was shot to death becuase he did not drop the knife as ordered. A detective told Justin’s mom, “That’s what we do.” He also helpfully imparted information about a new ‘trend’ in law enforcement–suicide by cop. As far as the allegation that Justin threatened the deputies with the knife is concerned, the evidence at the scene is not consistent with a knife attack by a 6’4″ alcohol-razed man. All of Justin’s blood was confined to his mattress and a bullet allegedly dug out of it, indicating he was shot were he laid in a state of mental crisis. One of the deputies involved posted on Facebook the following: “Most people respect the badge. Everyone respects the gun.” The other deputy involved fatally shot a knife-wielding man five months ago. Yes Hannah, that is what the cleaners do in a police state, mop up the useless debris and let the system back their action regardless of how outrageous the official conduct. So US Person advises: next time you have a crisis in your home, try handling it yourself unless you want your loved one dead from ‘suicide by cop’.
An entomologist at Penn State University said neonicotinoids are being overused as a crop ‘insurance policy’ rather than in response to an identified infestation.
Once numbering the billions, only 56.5 million Monarchs were counted in January at their Mexican refuge, the second lowest total ever. NRDC filed suit in February to force the EPA to act on a petition to limit the use of another herbicide, glyphosate, that is destroying Monarch habitat. As if these threats to the Monarch migration were not enough, another giant chemical company, Dow, is ready to release new pesticide, Enlist Duo, that will also destroy milkweed.

On Monday, about 700 demonstrators took a land route to Terminal 5 where the massive rig is moored. No protestors were arrested by the dozen police on watch. A Shell Oil company spokesperson said the protests will not alter its preparations for drilling this summer. Previously the company used Seattle’s private shipyards to refurbish and maintain drilling rigs. They have the attention of the city’s activists now.

What do you expect the Current Occupant to say? His “tactical setback” is in reality a strategic defeat. Not only does the capture of Ramadi unequivocally demonstrate the inadequacies of the the Iraqi army, supposedly trained and equipped by the United States, but it exposes the fundamental problem in Iraq since the dictator Saddam Hussein was deposed by a meddling foreign power: the absence of national cohesion. Iraq is an unnatural creation of European imperialism after World War I. Originally the region was composed of three provinces of the Ottomans. Now, the ‘trend’ is to return to a tripartite division along sectarian and ethnic divisions. Who are we to argue with history?
