David Axelrod: ‘Perry Indictment Looks Pretty Sketchy’ Texas Republican Governor Rick Perry was indicted by a grand jury Friday for using his budget powers to force the removal of a District Attorney arrested last year in a humiliating and very public drunk driving incident. Saturday morning, however, Perry finds himself with the unlikeliest of defenders. Using his Twitter account, David Axelrod, a senior aide and confidante to President Obama, wrote: “Unless he was demonstrably trying to scrap the ethics unit for other than his stated reason, Perry indictment seems pretty sketchy.” Even Ben White of the left-wing Politico came to… View Article

The Militarization Of Police

The Militarization Of Police Police officers ride an armored vehicle as they patrol a street in Ferguson, Missouri, Aug. 11, 2014. While serving as a U.S. Marine on patrol in Afghanistan, we wore desert camouflage to blend in with our surroundings, carried rifles to shoot back when under enemy attack, and drove around in armored vehicles to ward off roadside bombs.
