Radley Balko knows a couple things about no-knock police warrants. Here is what he says you need to know about Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron omitting facts to the point of lying in his press conference explaining why the officers who killed Breonna Taylor weren't charged. (To one of his points, we too have said Taylor was sleeping when she was killed. This was not correct.) (Washington Post)

Two things can be true at once: Police should not arrest reporters doing their jobs, even if they work for the Daily Caller; and how's it feel to be the Enemy of the People, dicks?

Today I learned about the Wilmington Insurrection of 1898, when the white men "expelled opposition black and white political leaders from the city, destroyed the property and businesses of black citizens built up since the Civil War, including the only black newspaper in the city, and killed an estimated 60 to more than 300 people." So many things to learn every day! (Wikipedia)

Nerds, help me out, does this mean a check for families every month?

Aimed at reducing childhood poverty rates, Biden's proposed expansion [of the child tax credit, which would also for the first time be available for people too poor to pay federal taxes] would be dramatic and open the allowance to families who would otherwise fail to qualify. It would increase a family's annual, per-child credit to $3,000 from $2,000 and would be awarded in installments each month instead of the current springtime lump sum. Children under age 6 would be credited $3,600.

Sarah Palin is threatening to run against Lisa Murkowski, I think? She keeps repeating my HOUSE, MY house?
