Breonna Taylor grand juror suggests case was misrepresented to the public

Breonna Taylor Grand Juror asks to speak outA grand juror in the Breonna Taylor case has suggested the Kentucky attorney general may have misrepresented to the public the case presented to the panel, a lawyer for the juror said Tuesday.

"My client wants to make sure the truth gets out," Kevin Glogower, the attorney for an anonymous grand juror, told reporters.
"This is an issue that is about accountability, it is about public trust and it is about transparency," he added.
The grand juror has requested in court that any and all recordings, transcripts, and reports of the grand jury relating to the case be released to the public, a move a former Kentucky prosecutor called "totally surprising and tremendously uncommon."

U.S. intelligence reports warn of extremist threat around election

US intel warns of extremist action around electionU.S. security officials are warning that violent domestic extremists pose a threat to the presidential election next month, amid what one official called a “witch’s brew” of rising political tensions, civil unrest and foreign disinformation campaigns.

FBI and U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) memos say threats by domestic extremists to election-related targets will likely increase in the run-up to the Nov. 3 election.

Those warnings so far have largely remained internal. But New Jersey’s homeland security office took the unusual step of publicly highlighting the threat in a little-noticed report on its website last week.



CDC was pushed to play down the risks of Covid-19 in reopening schools, former Pence staffer says

CDC pressured by WH to repoen schoolsThe US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was pushed to play down the risks of the coronavirus pandemic in reopening schools for in-person classes, Olivia Troye, a former top adviser to Vice President Mike Pence, confirmed to CNN Monday.

She called a New York Times story about the pressure campaign accurate.
Troye, who worked as Pence's lead staffer with the White House Coronavirus Task Force for months before leaving the Trump administration last month, said the situation was a "nightmare."
"Unfortunately, this was an effort, you know, at times where I would get blindsided, where there would be junior staffers being tasked to find different data for charts to show that the virus wasn't as bad for certain populations, ages or demographics," Troye, Pence's former homeland security adviser, told CNN's Chris Cuomo Monday.
However, recent studies, including one from South Korea last month, have shown that children can spread the coronavirus just like adults.

Fourth U.S. judge issues order blocking Postal Service cuts

Fourth judges orders end to postal service cuts

A federal judge in Pennsylvania granted a request on Monday to temporarily block additional operational changes to the U.S. Postal Service, citing that “irreparable harm will result” in the election, and to the agency in general, unless its ability to operate is assured.

Gerald McHugh, judge of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, said Postmaster General Louis DeJoy’s changes to the agency that eliminated extra transportation and overtime, as well removed mail processing equipment, have slowed mail delivery, which poses a specific threat to states' abilities to conduct a fair election.


Sheriff Breaks Up Huge NYC Wedding With Almost 300 Guests

NY Sheriff breaks up wedding with 250 people

A New York City wedding ended in disaster Friday night after cops busted the illicit gathering of almost 300 guests and took the venue owner into custody, according to local reports.

After receiving an anonymous complaint, the New York City Sheriff’s Department broke up the wedding at the Royal Elite Palace in Woodside, Queens just before midnight, NBC News New York reported. Upon entering the hall, filled with mask-less guests in formal wear, deputies found “large groups of people entering the location through what appears to be an indoor parking area as well as loud music coming from the location.”

Citing law enforcement sources, the New York Post said at least 240 guests were present and the venue was serving food, alcohol, and playing live music. NBC reported that 284 guests were sent home from the wedding.


Right wing Proud Boys rally has Portland in state of emergency

Proud Boys rally in PortlandThousands of supporters of the right-wing Proud Boys group were expected in Portland, Oregon on Saturday as police prepared for clashes in a city that has become the epicenter of sometimes deadly political violence in the run up to the Nov. 3 election.

Governor Kate Brown on Friday declared a weekend state of emergency for Oregon’s biggest city, saying “white supremacist groups” were traveling from out of state to attend an event the Proud Boys say was organized to “end domestic terrorism.”


New York Threatens Orthodox Jewish Areas With Lockdown Over Virus

NYC threatens Jewish Orthodox Community with lockdown

Facing a worrying spike in coronavirus cases in Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods, New York City health officials began carrying out emergency inspections at private religious schools on Friday and threatened to impose an extraordinary lockdown in those communities that would be the first major retreat by the city on reopening since the pandemic began.

Mayor Bill de Blasio ordered the Police Department and the Sheriff’s Office to enforce public health guidelines in several Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods in Queens and Brooklyn, where residents often do not wear masks or engage in social distancing. But community leaders said residents have been resisting the guidelines because of hostility toward Mr. de Blasio and the growing influence of President Trump, whose views on masks and the pandemic have been widely embraced.
