> Security cameras caught the man spray-painting symbols and phrases including "Jesus Christ" on the walls and doors of Masjidullah – The Center for Human Excellence

Dude is so woefully undereducated by his own church that he doesn’t know Jesus was Jewish and didn’t dislike temples, he whipped the shit out of people who misused or abused them.

> In total, prosecutors believe that Mr Rumson spent only about 15 minutes in the Capitol before leaving. Outside, however, footage shows that he encouraged other rioters to "get a ram" to breach another entry point. The affidavit notes that he later assaulted at least one police officer by "running through the crowd towards the officer, reaching out grabbing the officer's face shield, which forced the officer's head and neck backwards and upwards".

That’s decidedly not very panda-like, for shame.

If they do their job to the best of their ability, I see no issue. If they refuse or take some stance by obviously and admittedly fixing the participants chances because of their trans status, that’s bigotry and has no place in that position, they should be removed and the public should be informed why.

My point is they may have missed something a seasoned researched would have issue with in peer review, it happened thousands of times a day. They might have accounted for everything they though of, but didn’t consider marijuana might have compounded effects with some other illness or medications, or that marijuana being smoked raises risk of effects short term but after months of abstinence the risk disappears (this is the finding of several recent studies). That’s why peer review is critical, to catch things imperfect but smart people might miss for the trees.

Good sources for data are critical, but even more important is good methodology in extracting information from that data. Are those people using marijuana because they’re already sick and therefore the sample pool automatically has a higher incidence of heart issues? That’s why studies and review are important, so seasoned researchers can say “well, you haven’t taken samples from people who have had no reason to be entered into a database, let’s collect seasoned marijuana users who haven’t been entered into these systems and compare”

“Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He's all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can't handle money!”

Many reasons, but particularly because the systems abhor open cases, because evidence and memory degrades, and to avoid using old events that weren’t considered worth pursuing at the time in someone’s mind as a new way to attack perceived enemies once power shifts.

If she actually weighed in favor of potentially murdering innocent people in hopes of making some stand with arson at minimum, she belongs in prison or a mental facility for a very long time. If she didn’t, she still should see consequences so severe she considers her actions from hence forth before she acts on her emotions.

> The document alleged that “six white sheriff’s deputies” raided a private residence where Michael Jenkins, 32, and Eddie Terrell Parker, 35, stayed at 135 Conerly Road in Braxton, Miss., “without warning or warrant” in what the Rankin County sheriff later called a narcotics investigation

"Investigation", lynching, they seem fairly interchangeable these days.
