B-CU Protests Against Betsy DeVos
(Daytona Beach, FL) -- Protests are expected today at Bethune-Cookman University against graduation speaker Betsy DeVos. Students there failed to get the U.S. education secretary scrapped from today's commencement after compiling a purported 60-thousand-person petition delivered to the school administration. Some graduating seniors are expected to demonstrate. That number surely won’t be 60,000. I wonder where the 60k signatures came from. Maybe it was a John Morgan medical pot petition drive?
Corrine Brown Corruption Trial
(Jacksonville, FL) -- Jury deliberations continue in the Corrine Brown corruption trial. A second-day of talks yesterday at the Jacksonville federal courthouse did not produce a verdict from a jury after eight hours. They return to discuss the nearly two-dozen fraud and corruption charges against her this morning beginning at 9am. Brown could see a 350-year prison sentence if convicted on all charges.
No Charges For Pensacola Mother Public Spanking
(Pensacola, FL) -- A Pensacola woman will not be criminally charged for publicly spanking her child. The Florida Department of Children and Families and Pensacola police said a complaint they received Monday about a viral video showing the paddling of a ten-year-old boy did not constitute criminal wrongdoing. The video has received more than 70-thousand views. Good to see that somebody sees the difference between spanking and abuse.
