01) George Floyd Protests Erupt Across America


“People are sick and tired of this corrupt system of government.

Anger over the death of George Floyd under a police officer’s knee spilled into the streets of Minneapolis for a second night Wednesday, intensifying well beyond Tuesday night’s unrest with a shooting death, widespread looting and a fire that shrouded the Lake Street neighborhood in smoke.

One person was fatally shot in the area where the protest was taking place late Wednesday, possibly by a pawnshop owner who said the person was looting his business.

In a news conference early Thursday, police spokesman John Elder said two officers responded to the scene outside Cadillac Pawn & Jewelry at 1538 E. Lake Street and administered first aid to the wounded man until medics arrived. He was taken to HCMC, where he died.

It looks like Trump’s draft executive order targeting Facebook and Twitter got leaked online…

01) It looks like Trump’s draft executive order targeting Facebook and Twitter got leaked online

“President Donald Trump will target Facebook and Twitter in an executive order on social media, according to a draft that appears to have leaked online.

Kate Klonick, an assistant legal professor at St. John’s University’s School of Law, published what she said was a draft version of the executive order late on Wednesday. (You can read it here.) The Techdirt reporter Mike Masnick said he had received the same draft, and Reuters confirmed that it had seen a genuine draft.

The draft version of the order, which could still change, names Facebook, Google, and Twitter and targets a section of US law under which tech platforms largely aren’t liable for what their users post and are fairly free to police content. Trump is expected to sign such an order on Thursday.

Specifically, the order would ask the Federal Communications Commission to examine those regulations under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act and to look at whether platforms’ actions to remove or alter users’ content should mean they forgo these protections.”
