Whicker: Jimmie Johnson puts coronavirus behind him, but not the concern

Physically, he is one of the survivors. The other day, he biked up to 10,500 feet in the mountains near his Colorado home, no problem at all. On Sunday, he will crawl through the window of his Chevrolet at Kentucky Speedway and rejoin the chase, stopping his absent streak at one. Mentally, Jimmie Johnson isn’t sure. “It’s a big problem, it’s a pandemic,” Johnson said Friday. “I’ve learned that my challenges are watched closely by my kids (Genevieve and Lydia). “How I deal with it is ultimately t...

Colorado Government Dumps Qualified Immunity For Cops (techdirt)

Since qualified immunity isn't actually a law -- but rather a Supreme Court construct -- states are under no obligation to adopt this doctrine and apply it to lawsuits against law enforcement officers. But most states have, with Iowa's top court being the latest to inflict this atrocity on the populace. The Supreme Court has fine tuned qualified immunity over the years, turning it into a speedy way to dispense with lawsuits brought by people whose rights have been violated. As long as the righ...

First, they’ve created millions of civic illiterates who are disconnected from long-held communal values and national identity. Second, they’ve exacerbated ...
