So, I just got around to watch the Castillo video, a few minutes ago.

I had been dreading to watch it, with reason. This sentence was auto-censored for excessive explectives.

I have a lot of questions. But, the one I believe is the most important is:

-What kind of "training" these "officers" have? Who, what, when, why are they being trained for?

I will not even touch the racial bias and profiling, before the traffic stop. It's too bad to even comment on.

I will not link the video, especially the one from inside the police car where mother and daughter were kept for ONE HOUR. It's too damn heartbreaking.

America, you're lost. Go home.

19 confirmed deaths, 21 wounded of which 10 in serious condition.

Victims were mostly people trapped in their cars when the fire unexpectedly engulfed an highway.

Mayor expects to find more victims trapped in their homes in areas that are unreachable at the moment.

This, right here, is what climate change means.

Very much worth watching and reflecting...

This is horrendous. :(
#USA #Debt #LateStageCapitalism: "A yearlong investigation by the USA TODAY Network found that port trucking companies in southern California have spent the past decade forcing drivers to finance their own trucks by taking on debt they could not afford. Companies then used that debt as leverage to extract forced labor and trap drivers in jobs that left them destitute.

If a driver quit, the company seized his truck and kept everything he had paid towards owning it.

If drivers missed payments, or if they got sick or became too exhausted to go on, their companies fired them and kept everything. Then they turned around and leased the trucks to someone else.

Drivers who manage to hang on to their jobs sometimes end up owing money to their employers – essentially working for free. Reporters identified seven different companies that have told their employees they owe money at week’s end.

The USA TODAY Network pieced together accounts from more than 300 drivers, listened to hundreds of hours of sworn labor dispute testimony and reviewed contracts that have never been seen by the public.

Using the contracts, submitted as evidence in labor complaints, and shipping manifests, reporters matched the trucking companies with the most labor violations to dozens of retail brands, including Target, Hewlett-Packard, Home Depot, Hasbro, J.Crew, UPS, Goodyear, Costco, Ralph Lauren and more."
