What do you think of a law that would compel police officers to intervene

when their colleagues go rogue and break the law? Would such a law serve its intended consequences?


Michael Harriot

Ben Crump is proposing “Tyre’s Law,” which requires cops to intervene when they see crimes being committed — even by other cops

That’s where we are:

We’re asking law enforcement officers to enforce laws that protect us from law enforcement officers who don’t want to protect us

Dana Brown's hiring by the Astros makes him the only Black GM in Major League Baseball

And the year is 2023!

The Houston Astros named Dana Brown their new general manager Thursday, choosing the longtime scouting executive to shepherd the team after it let go of former GM James Click, the architect of the 2022 World Series champions.

Brown, 55, served as the vice president of scouting for the Atlanta Braves over the past four years, hitting on a number of draft picks. His 2019 draft in particular was a windfall, netting starting center fielder Michael Harris II in the third round, projected shortstop Vaughn Grissom in the 11th round and Shea Langeliers, the centerpiece of Atlanta's trade for Matt Olson, in the first.

"I'm coming to a winning team and a big part of what I want to do is sustain the winning long term,'' Brown said. "We want to continue to build, continue to sign good players, continue to develop players and continue the winning success.''

"At the end of the day, I think it's good for our sport to have diversity," Brown said. "I'm really excited for this opportunity and especially grateful that Jim Crane took an opportunity to say, 'Hey, I like this guy. I like what he's all about,' and he's rolling with me."
