Need more evidence to defund the police? Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old black man, is shot in the back seven times by a Kenosha, Wisconsin police officer. Amazingly, survived the initial shooting. Then get this...Blake gets taken to the hospital where he is handcuffed to his hospital bed, even though he is paralyzed because one of the shots severed his spinal cord. You heard his sister, Letetra Wideman, in today’s intro.
And do you need more evidence that white supremacists are the biggest domestic terrorist group in the U.S. aided and abetted by the police? Late Tuesday night a 17-year-old MAGA-loving, a white nationalist from Illinois drove to Wisconsin with a long gun and ended up killing two people, injuring several more. New court documents show that the little fascist killed the first protester because the protester threw a plastic bag at him.
Earlier that day, Kenosha police thanked the white nationalist militia members for their service and handed out water bottles to them.
Nancy Pelosi says the Democrats will release Trump’s tax return...only if and when Biden wins the election. What?

The grand experience continues. After a week and a half of classes, Bloomsburg University reverses course and goes all online. Why? Well, because cases of COVID-19 on campus started to double every two days. At the beginning of the week, the university had almost 50 cases. By Wednesday, that number jumped to at least 90.
Kutztown University announces its first case. Wonder what will happen now?
Speaking of Kutztown, Lehigh Valley Live reports that a professor told students to go out and get infected with the virus.“I think the sooner you guys get it, the better. Because none of you are gonna die from this and we need to have, you know, everybody be immune. And so the sooner that people are immune the better. And so you all should be going to Shorty’s every night, you know, interacting, getting this thing, get it over with.”
Free Will Brewing recs for the week.
