We will not accept Donald Trump's bigotry, homophobia, sexism, racism, xenophobia, authoritarianism, ignorance and stupidity. Already our democratic republic has been replaced by oligarchy. What next, outright fascism? As our articles will show, Trump is following the path of Adolf Hitler as a passive, confused media grovels for access.
An off-duty Chicago police officer is under investigation after a motorcycle accident turned first into a street fight, and then into a shooting.
Four-year-old Taniyah Middleton and her cousin were crossing a street in Maywood, a suburb west of Chicago, as an eight-year veteran off-duty Chicago police officer was riding his motorcycle, the news site The Grio reported. The officer — who Chicago police refuse to identify publicly — ditched his bike to avoid hitting the girl, but the bike struck her anyway. She survived.
Her father, Christopher Middleton, 26, ran to his daughter’s aid and began a fight with the officer. According to reports, the officer shot Middleton when after 18-year-old John Passley, Taniyah’s cousin who had been crossing the street with her, joined in the attack by kicking the officer. Investigation of this police involved shooting is being conducted by the Independent Police Review Authority.
