Way to hold them accountable and make them think, Lebron!
"I got one question for you guys before you guys leave. I was thinking when I was on my way over here, I was wondering why I haven't gotten a question from you guys about the Jerry Jones photo," James said. "But when the Kyrie [Irving] thing was going on, you guys were quick to ask us questions about that."
On Nov. 5, after the Brooklyn Nets announced a suspension for James' former teammate after Irving shared a link to a documentary containing antisemitic tropes on social media, James was asked why he believed so few players around the league had commented on Irving's post and subsequent comments.
"Me personally, I don't condone any hate to any kind. To any race. To Jewish communities, to Black communities, to Asian communities. You guys know where I stand," James said at the time. "I believe what Kyrie did caused some harm to a lot of people. And he has since, over the last -- I think it was today, or yesterday -- he apologized. But he caused some harm, and I think it's unfortunate."
Here's the image in question, for those who haven't seen it. Jerry Jones is toward the center back, wearing horizontal stripes.
So relatable this couple.
Good topic for debate. What side do you come down on?
I'm not familiar with the reputation of the source of this story (Mission Local), but if this report is accurate, it is very troubling. Hopefully the proposal is rejected. There is a link to the SFPD's proposal following the excerpt below (it's embedded on the media outlet's website).
The new policy, which defines how the SFPD is allowed to use its military-style weapons, was put together by the police department. Over the past several weeks, it has been scrutinized by supervisors Aaron Peskin, Rafael Mandelman and Connie Chan, who together comprise the Board of Supervisors Rules Committee.
The draft policy faces criticism from advocates for its language on robot force, as well as for excluding hundreds of assault rifles from its inventory of military-style weapons and for not including personnel costs in the price of its weapons.
Peskin, chair of the committee, initially attempted to limit the SFPDs authority over the departments robots by inserting the sentence, Robots shall not be used as a Use of Force against any person.
Draft proposal here:
Donny boy is vicious when he feels slighted. Such a baby.
