UVA law professor anne coughlin is giving a short talk this evening called “demystifying dobbs”, breaking down the dobbs decision. i’ll be following along a little “the legal question in dobbs turns on the meaning of this word - liberty,” within the fourteenth amendment, coughlin says. “at the end of the day, what you’re seeing is a dispute” “over what sources you look to decide what counts as constitutional liberty.”

dan abbott, the organizer of the campbell county militia and the bedford county militia, posted a call to "counter protest" this event in lynchburg this evening. lynchburg is an evangelical stronghold & local government is friendly with the growing militia movement. our congressman, bob good, has spoken at campbell county militia events and has used campaign funds to pay "DK Abbott Enterprises" (a company that does not exist, but the checks went to the same PO box the militia is registered to) for event security.

i've got my hands on the federal complaint filed by former charlottesville police chief dr rashall brackney.
more facts will come out as the case evolves, but it does look like city officials & the police union conspired to retaliate against her for investigating corrupt cops. this looks like another expensive, embarrassing, and completely avoidable fuckup for the city of charlottesville. we just never found out footing again after 2017, if we ever even had it.

charlottesville's police civilian oversight board meeting is underway. first order of business, approving the minutes of their retreat, which was CLOSED to the public. board chair bill mendez says now that at the meeting, "we did not talk about board business. we discussed our life histories, our families, our aspirations & concerns."
so the city paid for a room at the country club & a facilitator so they could talk about their feelings?

with robert rundo's federal charges having been revived by an appeals court earlier this year & him being on the lam in eastern europe, i was wondering - how is will2rise's online store still processing credit card orders for merchandise to fund "a host of creative projects"? the grapevine, tx address listed on the contact page is the childhood home of patriot front leader thomas rousseau, returns are directed to be sent to a PO box in philadelphia, and the phone # has a central florida area code, so who is running the show here?

“oh you want to defund the police? then who will you call when you need help?” has lost all power. don’t say it ever again. the 1st time i ever dialed 911, i was 16. the woman who lived on the farm where i worked after school was out to sea on a naval training exercise. she had no one else to call. she called me to say her friend, a woman i’d met a few times, had likely attempted to end her own life.
