Set to stun – Children are being Tasered by school-based police officers. No one knows how often it’s happening or what impact it’s having on students

It was just a dumb fight. Two boys, both juniors, stood in the hallway discussing a classic teenage hypothetical: whether one of them could win in a fight against another student. But when one of the teens, Scott, said he didn’t think his friend could win, things turned personal. They flung curse words back and forth that Thursday morning in …

Opioid use and addiction have exploded in predominantly white communities around the country, and 90 percent [3] of new heroin users over the last decade are white.

Yves Smith – Krugman and His Gang’s Libeling of Economist Gerald Friedman for Finding That Conventional Models Show That Sanders Plan Could Work

Yves here. I’m a bit late to weigh in on the scurrilous attacks on the Sanders budget plan, and more important, on Gerald Friedman, a UMass-Amherst economics professor who modeled it in detail and gave it favorable marks. Full disclosure: I know Friedman but only casually, having met him at speaking events and conferences. I have also cross posted some …

Valerie Tarico – God as the Original Terrorist: How the Bible Condones Atrocious Acts of Terror

Last fall, Dutch pranksters put a cover from a Quran over a Bible and then asked passersby [3] to read aloud homophobic, violent or sexist passages that violate modern moral sensibilities.

Justice on Hold: Maryland Court Delays Cop’s Trial in Freddie Gray Case
“Attorney at War” Alton H. Maddox Jr., dissects yesterday’s ruling by Maryland’s Court of Special Appeals postponing the trial of a Baltimore police officer charged in the death of Freddie Gray. Officer Caesar J. Goodson Jr., the driver of a police transport van in which Freddie Gray suffered neck and spinal-cord injuries that killed him on April 19, 2015, was scheduled to go on trial yesterday. But the appeals court halted the trial, saying it needed time to review the hearing judge’s decision to allow prosecutors to call as a witness against Goodson fellow officer William Porter. Porter, the first of six officers indicted in Freddie Gray’s death, was the first to go on trial; a mistrial was declared when the jury could not reach a verdict. Maddox had predicted the outcome of Porter’s trial. He explains the “legal back door” that the prosecutors’ failing legal strategy has left open in this controversial case.

China Not Facing ‘Cataclysmic’ Economic Slow Down, Says Stiglitz

China isn’t facing a “cataclysmic” economic slowdown and last week’s market turmoil was more about badly designed stock market circuit breakers, said Nobel-prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz. The circuit breakers, which caused local exchanges to close early on two days last week after stocks plunged to a 7 percent limit, weren’t as well designed as they could be, Stiglitz, a professor …

In Ferguson, Detroit and Baltimore, the Ongoing Battle for Justice
Leid Stories focuses on three developing stories with something in common: a quest for justice. The American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri today files a lawsuit against the Ferguson-Florissant School District’s at-large electoral system, saying it dilutes the voting strength of African Americans in the district and violates federal law. In Detroit, about 60 public schools are closed today, the result of a sickout by teachers over pay, working conditions and substandard support for the state’s largest school district.
