Back in 1995, John DiIulio, a conservative political scientist, published an incredibly influential article about the coming wave of "Super Predators," remorseless young crime machines bred of poverty, incarceration with adults, gang culture, and dysfunctional (blackblackblack) families "where unconditional love is nowhere but unmerciful abuse is common" (DiIulio devoted a whole paragraph to how superpredators would also come from poor white families, too, so there's your equality right there). It was just inevitable, based on all the demographic trends, that America would soon be plagued by


tens of thousands of severely morally impoverished juvenile super-predators. They are perfectly capable of committing the most heinous acts of physical violence for the most trivial reasons (for example, a perception of slight disrespect or the accident of being in their path). They fear neither the stigma of arrest nor the pain of imprisonment. They live by the meanest code of the meanest streets, a code that reinforces rather than restrains their violent, hair-trigger mentality.

Oh, except of course it never happened. By the end of the nineties, youth crime began to plummet to record lows, where it remains today. Even DeIulio recanted his theory. But the image of the black super-predator, a glassy-eyed monster with nothing but malign intent, is alive and well, and has informed law enforcement for decades, even though the actual monsters never arrived on Maple Street. And now, says Rachel Maddow, here's Darren Wilson's testimony about his encounters with one of these mutant superbeings.

This is a fascinating segment. Already, we've seen plenty on Wilson's bizarre testimony and his ABC interview where he says he did exactly what he needed to, but it's useful to see the political science history that got us to where a big strong white cop was certain that he was facing not a human being, but a near-unstoppable crime robot that was about to disassemble him with its bare titanium claws.

HOLY ACHTUNG TWITTER IS FREAKING OUT! Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office (SCO) has issued a statement, almost 24 full hours after Buzzfeed's story on Donald Trump ordering Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about the failed Trump Tower Moscow deal started blowing everybody's minds. Mueller's spokesman says actually BuzzFeed got it a bit wrong. This is significant because 1) Mueller's office NEVER talks, and B) well, they're not actually saying BuzzFeed got it WRONG wrong. Just, you know, kinda wrong.

Wow, that statement is lawyered as fuck. BuzzFeed described "specific statements" wrong, and its "characterization of documents and testimony" was just an eensy bit off, and maybe if BuzzFeed moved this sofa over here it would take advantage of more natural light in the room, and honestly, BuzzFeed should trim up this one paragraph of its article, because those sentences DO NOT SPARK MARIE KONDO'S JOY.

Otherwise, it's great!

First of all, we want everybody to relax. Donald Trump is still a criminal.

It's been a joy watching the reactions come in from TrumpWorld about the news that Donald Trump has committed YET ANOTHER CRIME, in this case suborning perjury by instructing his former lawyer thug fixer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress. How many other people did he do that with? WE DUNNO! But that's not what this post is about.

First of all, let's see what the big guy himself did. As with all presidential statements from the un-president, it happened on Twitter:

Oh wait, that's (grapes) not it. Here it is:

That's right, the president of the United States reacted to a bombshell news report exposing that he had tampered with a witness by suborning perjury by ... tampering with that witness some more in public, by threatening his father-in-law! (To be fair, Trump has been trying to intimidate the witness by encouraging the feds to investigate Cohen's father-in-law for a hot minute now. It's one of his things, like tweeting and pooping at the same time and comparing WALL to WHEEL.)
