" This isn’t the first time a person who recorded officers using excessive force was arrested. Weeks after filming the chokehold death of Eric Garner, Ramsey Orta was arrested for two counts of criminal possession of a semiautomatic handgun and trying to give the firearm to a teenager on the street. Orta denies that he was in possession of a gun when the NYPD arrested him."

" In reality, the bill isn't likely to make it through a Republican-controlled Congress, but they are hoping the FCC will act on its own to make changes and create greater transparency." 
Democrats are trying to create a bit more transparency around campaign ads ...

" The coal industry is dying, and they are desperately trying to place the blame for their impending doom on someone other than themselves. The world around them is changing, and the industry is absolutely terrified of change."

" the company’s investors are not aware of that risk, the two groups alleged. Because of that, the groups filed a petition to the Securities and Exchange Commission, requesting that the agency launch a formal investigation into Shell’s risk disclosures to shareholders relating to its activities in the Arctic Ocean."

So now they seem to even need to deceive their own shareholders about the risks involved. 
A Tuesday legal filing accuses Shell of hiding from company shareholders the monetary risks of an Arctic oil spill.

Unfortunately for any reasonable Republicans, "pandering to idiots" had become the core strategy of today's GOP. 
A former Republican state lawmaker wrote a scathing letter to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) on Thursday that slammed him for "pandering to idiots" who believe that a planned U.S. military exercise is cover for a forcible takeover of the state.

" What do you know. The New York Times and Washington Post, having entered into an agreement to base their reporting on a Republican operative's allegations against Hillary Clinton, haven't been eager to report on problems with those allegations. "

It comes down to whether he disregarded the fact that what he was doing might kill Gray.

Tesla's new batteries for home and utility storage are "the missing piece" in Elon Musk's solar and electric car future.

Interesting, this could further help to improve the economies of scale for residential solar power systems. 
Not surprising considering that SolarCity's CEO is Elon Musk's cousin and Musk is chairman, but still cool.

" It should come as no surprise that Michaels himself works for an organization funded by the fossil fuel industry. The Cato Institute was co-founded by the oil billionaire Koch brothers and has received millions from the Koch family, while also receiving funding from ExxonMobil and the American Petroleum Institute."

" DeSmog recently reported on how the Obama administration has worked behind the scenes to help achieve the oil industry’s top goal when it came to these new regulations — allowing the oil producers to continue to put the highly volatile Bakken crude oil into rail tank cars without removing the natural gas liquids that make it such an explosive mixture."

This is also why I have trouble trusting President Obama’s assurances about the TPP trade deal. 
The long-awaited oil-by-rail regulations released today are basically a guidebook for the oil and rail industries to continue doing business as usual when it comes to moving explosive Bakken crude oil by rail.

Of course this then brings up the question as to the origin of the "leaked" statement that suggested Great deliberately injured himself. That statement smelled like an attempt by some in the Baltimore Police to blame the victim from the start. 
Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby announced on Friday that she had filed murder, manslaughter, and assault charges against city police officers following the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray.
