Subway Fair? “The Marine veteran who was seen in a video putting Jordan Neely in a fatal chokehold on a New York City subway was arraigned Friday on a second-degree manslaughter charge that Neely’s family suggested was too lenient.” (I shared some thoughts on the broader issues around this case last week: Fear and Loathing on the F Train.)

+ 42: “Many migrants expelled to Mexican cities along the U.S. border face daily horrors at the hands of criminal organizations and, in some cases, the same government agencies that Washington is leaning on to help stanch the flow of migrants at the border, according to human rights groups.” NYT (Gift Article): Asylum-Seekers Are Prey for Gangs and Officials. And from Vox: The seismic consequences of ending Title 42.

+ Coop Attempt: Anderson Cooper gave an impassioned (and pathetic) speech about why CNN’s hour-long televised Trump rally was actually really important. And it was.

+ Teen Titans: “A federal judge in Virginia has ruled that a law banning licensed federal firearms dealers from selling handguns to young adults under 21 violates the Second Amendment and is unconstitutional.”

+ Just Plane Crazy “A YouTuber whose single-engine airplane crashed in a California national forest admitted that he downed the aircraft to boost views for a sponsorship deal.”
