  1. Sentencing hearing today for an EMT involved in the Elijah McClain death.

    Some good may come from it….  AP reports

     

    “We failed to realize just how dangerous the restraint and chemical sedation of these individuals can be,” said Eric Jaeger, a paramedic and EMS educator in New Hampshire. “For better or worse the criminal convictions are focusing attention on the problem.”

    The response includes revisions to patient protocols aimed at elevating how seriously ketamine injections are treated — or avoiding them altogether when alternative drugs are more appropriate.

    Some departments now require comprehensive patient assessments before and after ketamine injections. They've also cautioned against using ketamine on people being restrained by police in a prone position — which increases the chances for fatal complications by making it harder for patients to breathe — and stocked medicine kits with alternative sedatives. And they've reminded their paramedics not to defer to police when making medical decisions

  2. Sec of State release on Feb ballots says 762,368. Are in…. just over 20% of the eligible.

     

    Among UAF voters, the breakdown so far is nearly 70% turning in their Republican ballot

    1. But what about Hunter's laptop?!!! 
       

      (If you have not read Eric Swalwell's questions to Hunter Biden during his hearing, here ya go): 

      SWALWELL: Any time your father was in government, prior to the Presidency or before, did he ever operate a hotel?

      BIDEN: No, he has never operated a hotel.

      SWALWELL: So he’s never operated a hotel where foreign nationals spent millions at that hotel while he was in office?

      BIDEN: No, he has not.

      SWALWELL: Did your father ever employ in the Oval Office any direct family member to also work in the Oval Office?

      BIDEN: My father has never employed any direct family members, to my knowledge.

      SWALWELL: While your father was President, did anyone in the family receive 41 trademarks from China?

      BIDEN: No.

      SWALWELL: As President and the leader of the party, has your father ever tried to install as the chairperson of the party a daughter-in-law or anyone else in the family?

      BIDEN: No. And I don’t think that anyone in my family would be crazy enough to want to be the chairperson of the DNC.

      SWALWELL: Has your father ever in his time as an adult been fined $355 million by any State that he worked in?

      BIDEN: No, he has not, thank God.

      SWALWELL: Anyone in your family ever strike a multibillion dollar deal with the Saudi Government while your father was in office?

      BIDEN: No.

      SWALWELL: That’s all I’ve got.

    2. He's 18 and eligible for a public defender based on the state's eligibility guidelines.  Direct your outrage at the gross understaffing and underfunding of the state public defender system instead.  Unless you don't want the right to counsel to be protected

  3. After subjecting myself to 30 minutes of the circus in the Atlanta courtroom today l've come to the conclusion I'm a lot more concerned with Clarence Thomas' entanglements than I am about Fani's love life.
