Real Stories Of Called-Off Weddings! Tabs., Thurs., June 11, 2020
Wowwwww. If you have any Daily Beast clicks left at all this month, use one on this: Dirty cop in Houston claimed George Floyd tried to sell him cocaine; Floyd did 10 months. Last year, the Houston DA sent a letter to Floyd's last-known address there (his late mother's home) explaining the cop had been arrested for setting up fake warrants — he was then charged with murder for the deaths of two people (and their fucking dog) in a raid he set up. The Houston DA wants to clear everyone he ever arrested. (Daily Beast)
Stole from Politico email thingie:
QUOTE OF THE DAY: "This day is picturesque. It would be a day to go jogging if you were Ahmaud Arbery. To ride a bike if you were Freddie Gray. To read a book if you were Keith Scott. To cash a check if you were Yvonne Smallwood. To rest if you were Breonna Taylor. To shop for auto parts if you were Walter Scott. To be 10 years old if you were Clifford Glover. To breathe if you were Eric Garner." Assemblywoman Sydney Kamlager before lawmakers knelt on the Capitol steps for eight minutes and 46 seconds to mark George Floyd's death.
