US police shoot almost 1,000 people dead per year, figures show

quote [ Fatal shootings by police are the rare outcomes of the millions of encounters between police officers and the public. Despite the unpredictable events that lead to the shootings, in each of the past four years police nationwide have shot and killed almost the same number of people - nearly 1,000. ]

When you start digging in to the statistics inside this number, it's painful how obvious the race issue is in the USA.

quote [ During a hearing on May 14th of the Subcommittee on Aviation and Space U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) argued that a Space Force is necessary to ward off space pirates.

"Pirates threaten the open seas, and the same is possible in space," he said during his opening statements. Since "the ancient Greeks first put to sea," Cruz argued, we?ve recognized the "necessity to protect waterborne traffic and commerce from bad actors." ]

Climate change is a hoax, but the threat of space piracy is something we need to invest billions into. Totally sane and rational administration.

quote [ Food-system collapse, sea-level rise, disease. In his new book "Falter," Bill McKibben asks, "Is it Too Late?" ]

Happy Hump Day!
