Judge dropped remaining charge against former CHP officer Scott McFarlane. But the District Attorney’s Office filed a new criminal complaint against McFarlane the following day with the identical obstruction charge.
This week saw a full day of children sobbing from the trauma of what they witnessed, but they were far from the only witnesses to cry. Mixed martial artist Donald Williams cried between his cogent and and sometimes righteously contained anger. So did the firefighter who approached the scene from across the street — Genevieve Hansen — who first reasoned, then ordered, then almost begged the officers to just “check his pulse!” (“Check his pulse, right fucking now!”)
I’m almost ready to say that when it comes to achieving a goal — especially an ambitious one — I believe your outcome isn’t so much determined by what you do, but who you do it with.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday ordered the state’s 40 million residents to stay at home, restricting non-essential movements to control the spread of the coronavirus that threatens to overwhelm the state’s medical system.
“In the United States, it was first detected in Chicago, and 47 days later, the World Health Organization declared a pandemic. By then it was too late: 110 million Americans were expected to become ill, leading to 7.7 million hospitalized and 586,000 dead.”

A catastrophe is when a death log that took a hospital months to fill completely now takes several days; catastrophe is when a car taking bodies to a crematorium carries away body bags instead of one body at a time in a coffin. Catastrophe isn’t one person dying in your family, but an entire family perishing within a few days
