Spot on indigogirl! But, Pam HATES republicans and conservatives and will never pass up a chance to try to put a negative and even dishonest spin on anything they do.
Modern vehicle bodies dent VERY easily. And honestly, a dent like that does not take very much force at all. To say "with such speed" falsely implies he was moving very fast. Pretty shoddy reporting. But, since we know Pam's political slant, this is to be expected.
What Trevor Dierdorff was doing was perfectly legal. What Mel Tolbert was doing was illegal. Had Mr Tolbert followed the law, Mr Dierdorff would not have hit him. Any charges filed against Mr Dierdorff were only due to the collision, which again, had Mr Tolbert followed the law would not have happened, while Mr Dierdorff was following the law. And that is why the charges were dropped.
"Journalists on the whole might not be the most likable people, but dishonest they are not."
Hmmm... guess your journalistic education never included "yellow journalism" (1890s), Joseph Pulitzer, William Randolph Hearst, etc. The truth, whether you like it or not, is that most journalism is biased and sensationalized.
One the one hand we have a person who was not doing anything illegal in the operation of his vehicle and on the other we have a person who was crossing the street illegally. Other than hitting his friend, the driver did nothing wrong and his friend would not have been hit had the pedestrian been obeying the law.
So it has nothing to do with whether or not the driver is May's friend or rich white man, it is a simple matter of law.
And I agree with Jackie.
BTW, because these people are actually criminals under this law, those helping them can actually be charged with aiding and abetting or under 8 US Code 1324, the latter usually being a felony.
"Progressive churches prepare to protect immigrants in the heart of Trump country "
Typical misleading headline. There is no threat to legal immigrants.
"But Trump's guidance, issued in January, upended the country's enforcement. That's because it defined "criminal" broadly enough to include everyone in the country without authorization like, say, all the women around this table. "
Again, misleading. Trump did not define what "criminal" is. Long established federal law, 8 US Code 1325 -- last changed over 20 years ago, actually makes them criminals, often felons. Trump is simply enforcing closer to the letter of the law.
That might work for the first person or group to come in, Mr. K--, but since even the people who were here before 1492 came over in waves over hundreds if not thousands of years, some may have even come across the Pacific and not the Beringia land bridge as traditionally taught, your "pioneer" label and objection regarding the Cheyenne, Ute, Arapaho, Cherokee, Sioux, Navajo, Chippewa,Choctaw (or any of the 566 tribes) or the Aztec, Inca, Yaqui, Olmec, Zapotec, and Mayans pretty quickly falls flat on its face.
The bottom line is that if you were born here, you are NOT an immigrant and no amount of twisted logic or revisionist "alternative fact" history/sociology is going to change that.
