Manhattan US Attorney Audrey Strauss files charges against Epstein enabler Ghislaine Maxwell. Lots and lots of social elite have to be terrified: if she opts to cooperate, her little black book could inculpate a who's who of bigwig assailants.

Indictment: "[Ghislaine] Maxwell assisted, facilitated and contributed to Jeffrey Epstein's abuse of minor girls by, among other things, helping Epstein to recruit, groom, and ultimately abuse victims...

"The victims were as young as 14."

1. OK, I'm calling bs on "news" of "COVID parties"—college students TRYING to get COVID. It has all the failure hallmarks of moral panic, Chomsky's 4th filter of manufactured consent (flak) & confirmation bias. Let me lay out why you should be skeptical. https://abcnews.go.com/US/alabama-students-throwing-covid-parties-infected-officials/story?id=71552514

The LAPD officer who shot Daniel Hernandez to death after a suicide call frequently posts videos of herself firing high-powered weapons off-duty. "If it wasn’t for her trigger happiness, I don’t think this would have happened.” https://theappeal.org/lapd-killing-social-media/

In April, LAPD officer Toni McBride killed Daniel Hernandez during a mental health crisis.

After the police killing of Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta, activists say it’s time to shut down the city’s jail, which is already slated for closure. “We need it done to save folks’ lives and we need it done so it’s not there for people to even want to use.” https://theappeal.org/nationwide-calls-for-police-reform-put-new-pressure-on-atlanta-to-close-its-ci...

This whole story is great reporting, but this graphic by @hannah_recht and @francoisduckett really put public health spending in context for me.
