I went to school with the Vegas shooter

Fri, 13 Oct 2017 16:18:52 +0000

By Greg Palast [Los Angeles] When we were at Francis Polytechnic High in Sun Valley, Steve Paddock and I were required to take electrical shop class.

Roberts for Truthout We can't make this up: African-American school teacher DeAndre Harris, victim of a beating by neo-Nazis in Charlottesville in August, has been — ready for this? — charged with assaulting the white supremacists who beat him with boards, iron rods, and brass knuckles. That is correct. […]

By Zach D Roberts Last night (Monday, October 9), we have learned that the DeAndre Harris story has taken a twist that would, in a different era, be surprising. With several of DeAndre's attackers still on the run — and police showing no interest in going after them — DeAndre just had an arrest warrant […]

There’s not been a single case of someone voting in Virginia and another state. Not one case. It’s a massive disenfranchisement to stop a crime which does not exist. That's why […]
