Open Discussion – Potpourri – December 3, 2015
Caterpillars, moths, butterflies, and all creatures great and small;
There is lots of news.
This afternoon, officials began identifying the 14 victims of the San Bernardino mass shooting. The Huffington Post has posted the information. One victim leaves behind 6 children.
The New York Times is keeping a running format on investigation updates.
Also this afternoon, Twitter suspended George Zimmerman’s account. It appears that he was in a relationship with a woman in Kentucky, and they broke up. Zimmerman went on a revenge-porn campaign, posting nude photos of her on Twitter along with her address and phone number. The Daily Dot has screenshots and the story.
For Thanksgiving, my cable provider gave free service to premium channels. I was able to watch 3 ½ minutes, 10 Bullets, the documentary about the life, killing, and death of Jordan Davis. The movie is REAL and greatly put together. It is one of the best documentaries I’ve seen, putting it right beside Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father.
We are following the trial of William Porter, the first Baltimore police officer to stand trial in the death of Freddie Gray. As always, Yahtzee is doing a fantastic job keeping us up-to-date. (She is so humbled, and I know she will hate me for saying this, but she deserves recognition for being the right-hand person when it comes to following trials.)
What’s on your mind?
