At times, over the past ten days, it seemed impossible to keep up with incidents of riot police behaving poorly, or outright violently, in response to peaceful protests. Greg Doucette has been tracking these moments on Twitter. Loosen up your fingers. You’re gonna be scrolling for awhile.

+ There was one moment in particular that took my breath away.

+ In addition to protesters, journalists have been the victims of unwarranted attacks and arrests. (Some laugh at Trump’s attacks on the media. Others listen and act accordingly.)

+ Meanwhile, the disaster Rand Paul, even at this moment in history, is preventing Senate passage of a law against … lynching. Kamala Harris and Cory Booker were not pleased. (There are some days when I feel fortunate to call both of these leaders my friends. Just kidding, I feel that way every day.)
