A federal jury determined that an #Ohio police officer did not violate the civil rights of a teenager when he shot and killed him while responding to a reported armed robbery.

#US #Crime Image
Jurors reached a decision in a lawsuit filed by Tyre King's grandmother on Wednesday.

It contested the police account of the shooting and claimed that the 13-year-old died as a result of excessive force, racial discrimination,
...and the police department's failure to properly investigate & discipline officers for actions that were either racially motivated or in violation of the law.

2022 #Midterms Simulation: #ArtoftheGerrymander

A Republican House win will be built on gerrymanders (TX/GA/FL/TN/LA, etc.)

To illustrate the need for fair maps, I'm calculating the results using the 2022 votes, but if every state had a Democratic gerrymander. #ElectionTwitter ImageImageImageImage

I’ll apply the difference in Presidential margin to the House result. Thanks @davesredist @mikemathieu @vest_team + @DKElections @PoliticsWolf

Keen to see how my maps perform over the decade; tried to comply with state law if partisan intent were allowed to stand.
#ArtoftheGerrymander: #Alabama
Trump 62.0% - Biden 36.6%
Real delegation: 6R-1D
Gerrymandered: 5R-2D
Δ Share of D seats: 14% => 28%
Easy Democratic pick-up of a safe new African American seat.… ImageImageImage

#Ohio 🧵 — Moving Forward, #BetOnOhio

1/8 We have a lot to be proud of.

Ohio is sending 5 progressive leaders to Congress to defend abortion rights and fight for democracy:
2/8 We also elected 3 education champions to the Ohio State School Board:
☑️ Former Sen. @teresa_fedor of Toledo
☑️ @tomforohio of Solon
☑️ Katie Hofmann of Cincinnati

They will fight for honest, accurate #education and help stop extremist book/curriculum bans. @Honesty4OhioEdm
3/8 In addition, we expanded progressive judicial seats in the lower courts throughout #Ohio, and won local ballot issues that will greatly impact working families.

For reporters and political pundits questioning why Ohio’s statewides performed so differently than other states, let me introduce you to one of the most sophisticated voter suppression efforts in the country. #2022Elections #Ohio
Thanks to 2.4 million purged voters - majority are under 35 and Dem - cumbersome vote-by-mail policies with no online request portal, & rules that prevent NGOs from working with county BOEs to register voters OH consistently has the lowest turnout in the Midwest.
While other states have expanded voting policies for automatic and same day voter registration Ohio actually got rid of the one week when voters could register and vote at the same time. These policies make our electorate redder than our people.

Se l'incertezza è il fattore dominante dell'anno, allora le #Midterms2022 non potevano fare eccezione. La politica #Usa si ferma per guardarsi allo specchio, per scattare una foto al giro di boa della grande corsa che condurrà tra due anni (sì, solo 2) alle presidenziali.
🇺🇸 Cosa c'è in palio?
La risposta corretta è la seguente: il rinnovo di 435 deputati alla Camera e di 35 seggi al Senato. E poi 36 poltrone da governatore dello Stato, per non parlare delle centinaia di referendum statali e delle migliaia di cittadine chiamate ad indicare il
proprio "mayor". Poi però c'è dell'altro. C'è la risposta politica. Quella per cui Joe Biden corre il rischio di trasformarsi nella cosidetta "anatra zoppa", nell'inquilino della Casa Bianca che non controlla le camere (una o due?) ed è vittima dei veti del partito rivale,

⭐️🧵 - No one can seem to find all of the new hospital admissions that the CDC is counting.

A study of the Columbus area data.
When I think the absurdity must have reached its peak, I dig a little deeper and find even more impressive ridiculousness.
Today, I looked at CDC’s Health Service Area that includes Franklin (Columbus), Delaware, Madison, Fayette and Pickaway counties - a region that contains over 1.6 million residents and several major hospital systems.

🧵 - Perspective.

Is Ohio 'on fire' with COVID right now?
Here we go again, the state is suddenly 'on fire' with COVID. Counties, institutions and businesses are suddenly reissuing mask mandates/advisories and panic is already ensuing.
Because this week's CDC Map of Fear update was a doozy, with most of the state now being at yellow (medium) and orange (high) alert levels (see below).

I want to thank @MO_Independent for this reporting. It is good and important reporting, and I thank them for shining a light on missing foster kids in Missouri.

And other states should have picked it up.…
No doubt 1,780 missing kids is bad. That is 4% of the total of foster kids during this period that went missing.

But the study was about how states report and search for missing kids.…
#Kansas, #Maryland, #Nebraska, #NewYork, and #Ohio each reported 7% of their foster kids went missing during the same period. SEVEN PERCENT.

A quick google search didn't show any news reporting raising concerns mentioning missing foster kids in these states.

This is going to be a long thread.🧵 #Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost released BCI case files from an officer-involved shooting last year in #Parma. He touted “full transparency” from the @OhioAG’s office. @DaveYostOH redacted names of 3 #SWAT officers who fired their weapons.
In June 2021, Kevin Giesel was shot & killed by officers from the Southwest Enforcement Bureau (SEB) #SWAT team during a 10-hour standoff at his house in #Parma. Giesel was a 64-year-old #Vietnam #veteran. He got into a shootout with #police officers.…
To be clear, I am in no way questioning why officers used deadly force or why a grand jury declined to indict the #police officers. I’m questioning the @OhioAG’s lack of transparency at a time when confidence in law enforcement is at an all-time low both in #Ohio & nationwide.

It's time for young people to take the stage. (🧵)

This election is important. More important than a lot of people think. Young people can change the course of history this November.

How, you ask? (1/6)
I got involved with the local party last year. The sad truth here in #Ohio (and other rural states across the nation) is that many districts in state legislatures are considered "solid R" and given up on by election experts.

This can change, trust me. (2/6)
I called my local Board of Elections in #ButlerCo. Turns out, no Dem was running. It's insane that so many elections go uncontested every single year.

We cannot continue to allow Republicans to walk into office, especially in districts where they think their seat is safe. (3/6)

Omicron is a deadly virus. Former UFC star 41 y.o. Chris "The Crippler" Leben from San Diego CA is recovering from COVID after being on life support. He declined to talk about his vaccination status. This was his second battle with COVID #TheySurvivedCovid…
“I was ready to tap out, and the reason I didn’t tap is because of my child … If it wasn’t for him, I wouldn’t have had the fight to get through those days,” said Leben.
There is a disinformation campaign that young people are not affected by COVID-19 and that #Omicron is mild. These are both incorrect. Vaccination against COVID-19 protects against severe disease.
