INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A sergeant with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department has been charged after video from a body-worn camera showed him stomp a man in the face during an arrest.

IMPD Sgt. Eric Huxley faces felony charges of official misconduct and battery resulting in moderate bodily injury.

IMPD leadership announced the case in a Tuesday morning press conference after an internal investigation. Huxley has been suspended from IMPD with a recommendation of termination from IMPD Chief Randal Taylor. The recommendation will go to the IMPD Civilian Police Merit Board.

Taylor learned of the incident on Oct. 6 and ordered an internal investigation.


Man shot by Kyle Rittenhouse files federal lawsuit alleging Kenosha police enabled armed militia

No.945633 View ViewReplyOriginalReport

MILWAUKEE -- A man who was shot in the arm by Kyle Rittenhouse during a protest last year against police brutality in Wisconsin has filed a federal lawsuit alleging police enabled the violence by allowing an armed militia to have free run of the streets during the demonstration.

Rittenhouse shot Joseph Rosenbaum, Anthony Huber and Gaige Grosskreutz with an AR-style semiautomatic rifle during the protest in Kenosha on Aug. 25, 2020, after an officer shot Jacob Blake two days earlier. Rosenbaum and Huber died. Grosskreutz was wounded in the arm but survived.

Prosecutors have charged Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, with multiple counts, including homicide. He has argued he fired in self-defense after Rosenbaum and Huber attacked him and Grosskreutz ran up to him armed with a handgun. Rittenhouse's trial is slated to begin next month.

Grosskreutz's lawsuit filed Thursday alleges that Rittenhouse, who lives in Antioch, Illinois, had joined white-supremacist militia members who had answered a call on social media to travel to Kenosha and protect businesses during the protest. Rittenhouse and Grosskreutz are white; so were Rosenbaum and Huber.

The filing maintains police knew the militia was there to hurt people, pointing to social media responses such as "Counter-protest? Nah. I fully plan to kill looters and rioters tonight" and "Armed and ready. Shoot to kill tonight." The identities of the posters weren't given in the lawsuit.

Regardless, police welcomed them, allowing them to patrol the streets with their guns after curfew. One officer told the militia "we appreciate you guys," according to the lawsuit. Police later funneled protestors toward the militia, telling members they could take care of them, the lawsuit alleges.

No.945708 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Masks and outdoor gatherings will still be the best way to make holiday gatherings safe this year, theUS Centers for Disease Control and Preventionsaid Friday in new guidance.

The CDC's number one advice is for all those who are eligible to get the Covid-19 vaccine before people get together and travel at the holidays. For kids ages 11 and under who aren't yet eligible to get the vaccine, the CDC recommends all those who will be around them over the holidays be vaccinated to protect them.

Unvaccinated adults in the US face an 11 times higher risk of dying from Covid-19 than fully vaccinated individuals and a six times higher risk of testing positive for Covid-19 according tonew datapublished Friday from the CDC.

For indoor gatherings, people should still wear masks, especially the unvaccinated.

Outdoors is still considered safer than indoors for gatherings. Families may want to take additional precautions before they get together, and get tested. The CDC also suggests people avoid crowded spaces before traveling.

Southlake school leader tells teachers to balance Holocaust books with "opposing" views


Teachers in the Carroll school district say they fear being punished for stocking classrooms with books dealing with racism, slavery and now the Holocaust.

Following an administrator's comments, teachers in Southlake, Texas, wondered if they would have to remove “Number the Stars” by Lois Lowry or other historical novels that tell the story of the Holocaust from the perspective of victims.

SOUTHLAKE, Texas — A top administrator with the Carroll Independent School District in Southlake advised teachers last week that if they have a book about the Holocaust in their classroom, they should also offer students access to a book from an “opposing” perspective, according to an audio recording obtained by NBC News.

Gina Peddy, the Carroll school district’s executive director of curriculum and instruction, made the comment Friday afternoon during a training session on which books teachers can have in classroom libraries. The training came four days after the Carroll school board, responding to a parent’s complaint, voted to reprimand a fourth grade teacher who had kept an anti-racism book in her classroom.

Walmart Promotes Racism

No.945389 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport

I can't wait for leftist to simp for a megacorp brainwashing its employees.

Walmart has put more than 1,000 employees through a critical race theory training that teaches that the U.S. is a “white supremacy system” and that white trainees are guilty of “white supremacy thinking” and “internalized racial superiority,” according to a new report.

Whistleblower documents obtained by City Journal’s Christopher Rufo reveal that Walmart first launched the program, which is based on the core principles of critical race theory, in 2018 in partnership with the Racial Equity Institute.

The company has made the program mandatory for executives, while it is recommended for hourly-wage workers. Rufo calls out Walmart over its hypocrisy, noting that its whole nine-member top executive leadership, except technology chief Suresh Kumar, is white.

Walmart confirmed to Rufo that it has “engaged REI for a number of training sessions since 2018” and has “found these sessions to be thought provoking and constructive.”

The training claims that the U.S. is a “white supremacy system,” created by white Europeans “for the purpose of assigning and maintaining white skin access to power and privilege,” according to the report.

No.945369 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
German design graduate Rebecca Weiss has won a James Dyson Award for a male contraceptive device called Coso, which uses ultrasound waves to temporarily halt sperm regeneration.

Weiss's Coso device is designed to be a reversible contraceptive solution. To use it, a person would fill the device with water up to the indicated mark, turn it on so it heats to operating temperature, and sit for a few minutes with their testicles dipped into it.

The ultrasound waves temporarily halt sperm regeneration, with contraceptive effectiveness beginning two weeks after the first application.

The effect is reversible, with fertility
to return no later than 6 months after the last application.

Weiss began designing the male contraceptive device after being diagnosed with a cervical cancer precursor that meant she could no longer take the pill, SO SHE DESIGNED THE DEVICE TO BOIL HER LAB-RAT PARTNERS BALLS EVERY FEW MONTHS

Emails show Hunter and Joe Biden has joint bank account and shared finances

No.944923 View ViewReplyOriginalReport

>President Joe Biden could become embroiled in an FBI investigation of Hunter's finances, experts say, as emails reveal the father and son shared accounts and paid each other's bills.

>Emails recovered by DailyMail.com from Hunter's abandoned laptop between Hunter and Eric Schwerin, his business partner at consultancy Rosemont Seneca, show Schwerin was working on Joe's taxes, discussing the father and son paying each other's household bills, and even fielding requests for a book deal for the then-vice president, as well as managing the donation of Joe's senate papers to the University of Delaware.

>It is unclear why Schwerin had this intimate role in the vice president's affairs rather than government officials in the Office of the Vice President.

>Hunter's claim that he and his father shared a bank account also raises serious questions whether funds from the alleged joint account were used for Hunter's May 2018 week-long bender with a prostitute in a Hollywood hotel.

>Last December, Hunter admitted in a public statement that he was under federal investigation over his tax affairs.

Gabby Petito: US blogger was strangled to death - coroner

No.943949 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
>A 22-year-old "van life" blogger who went missing on a road trip with her fiancé was strangled to death, a Wyoming coroner has ruled.

>Gabby Petito had been dead for several weeks when her body was found last month near a national park the couple had visited, coroner Brent Blue said.

>Ms Petito's fiancé Brian Laundrie is a person of interest in the case but has been missing since mid-September.

>The plight of the travel influencer captured global attention.

>She had been documenting the nomadic "van life" trip through national parks in the American West on social media.

>Her disappearance also triggered a debate over the amount of attention accorded to missing white women.

>On Tuesday, Dr Blue told a news conference that Ms Petito's body was found in a campsite with signs of strangulation.

>Her body had been "outside in the wilderness for three to four weeks" before she was discovered on 20 September, the coroner said.

>He would not confirm if an item was used to kill her. He did not disclose details of her toxicology report, but did say that Ms Petito was not pregnant at the time of her death.

>The Teton County coroner's ruling follows an initial post-mortem in September in which he had called the death a homicide, meaning it had been caused by another person.

>Officials are in contact with Ms Petito's family about transferring her remains.

>"Unfortunately, this is only one of many deaths around the country of people who are involved in domestic violence and it's unfortunate that these other deaths do not get as much coverage as this one," Dr Blue added.

>He said the area was experiencing a "media circus". The case has also captivated amateur detectives, from TikTok sleuths to TV personalities.

>According to the FBI's National Crime Information Center, nearly 90,000 missing persons cases were actively ongoing at the end of 2020, though few receive national attention.
