Note:  Due to obligations, I’m posting this, Friday’s article, a day early.

Chief Tim Gannon (L), Kim Potter (R)

Police officers often start out of a troubled sleep, only to awaken drenched in sweat, their hearts pounding out of their chests,glancing wildly about in a panic.  One of worst nightmares of that kind, something that haunts every competent cop, is accidentally shooting someone who should not have been shot.  Such is the reality of former Brooklyn Center, MN police officer, a 26-year female veteran, Kim Potter.  Fox News reports:

George Floyd, Update 7: Trial, Week 3, Days 11 & 12

This update will cover Week 3, days 11 and 12—Monday and Tuesday.  I’ll begin with the Defense motion to dismiss, which was denied.  This is expected.  In every criminal trial, at the end of the prosecution’s case, the defense always moves to dismiss/acquit, alleging the state failed to prove the elements of the crimes.  They do this whether the allegation is true or not, because who knows?  The judge just might go for it.  They very rarely do.  And in this case, no judge would grant such a motion, taking the wrath of the entire Minnesota political establishment, to say nothing of the BLM/Antifa thugs they allow free reign, on himself.  The only oddity in this process was Defense Attorney Eric Nelson didn’t make his motion until after he had begun to present his case, which would normally be a problem, but the judge was so anxious to get this case over with, he forged ahead and let Nelson make the motion at the end of Tuesday with the jury out of the room.

Why do I spend the time, blood, sweat and tears necessary to produce this scruffy little blog?  Because I’m a writer, and that’s what writers do.  Because I flatter myself to think I have something worthwhile to say, and others might share that opinion, and:

Georgia On My Mind

Gentle readers, you are aware, I’m sure, of Major League Baseball’s minor league boycott of Georgia, Temporary President Biden’s multiple lies about the new Georgia law that makes vote fraud just a bit more difficult, and the general political fervor—“Jim Crow,” “Jim Eagle” (which means what, exactly?), racism (of course; what isn’t these days?), voter suppression (anything that prevents vote fraud), etc.—that is roiling the nation.  Even though The Washington Post gave Biden four Pinocchios—their highest recognition of lying—he won’t give up.  Of course, we have no way of knowing if Biden knows what he’s saying when he reads–sort of—the Teleprompter, or what, if anything, he remembers thereafter.

On March 31, 2021, I posted USAF: Diversity And Inclusion Lessons, which documents some of the woke insanity currently infecting, and debilitating, our armed forces.  In that article, Lt. General Brad Webb, commander of the Air Force Education and Training Command, said:

July 10, 202 marks the ten-year anniversary of the murder of Erik Scott by panicky, undertrained Las Vegas police officers at the Summerlin Costco.  I never met Erik Scott, but over many years of investigating his murder, writing and publishing the definitive book on the case, I came to know him well, which only exacerbates my sense of loss—and outrage.
