South Dakota attorney general was distracted before fatal crash: official

Ravnsborg, who is in his first term after being elected in 2018, hit 55-year-old Joseph Boever the night of Sept. 12 with his Ford Taurus when Boever was walking along the side of the road. Ravnsborg initially called 911 to say he thought he’d hit a deer; he discovered Boever’s body the next day.

Boever was using some form of light and relatives believe he was walking to his truck, which he had crashed earlier, according to The Associated Press.

Price did not say what caused Ravnsborg to become distracted, the AP reported, or what kind of light Boever was using. An autopsy determined Boever’s

Trump’s big, beautiful health insurance plan does not exist

The Register’s editorial
Published 6:00 a.m. CT Oct. 30, 2020

CLOSE

While discussing health care, President Trump was the first to be muted at the final presidential debate.

USA TODAY

Editorial: A government-run plan would provide competition to private insurers and guarantee coverage was always available to Americans

“Terminate Obamacare,” said Donald Trump during the second and final presidential debate. “Come up with a brand new, beautiful health care” plan.

Ah, the big, bodacious alternative to the Affordable Care Act he’s been talking about for over four years. 

No plan has been unveiled, which is a recurring theme from the GOP. Republicans in Congress had majorities for over half of the Bush administration to offer a proposal to provide health insurance to Americans. They had a decade after Obamacare was enacted to roll out a different proposal.

What Americans heard: crickets.

Because the GOP has no plan. Its only plan

My Radio Audience Made Me Realize Why Hillary Clinton Lost Pennsylvania. Joe Biden Should Listen In

It took time, patience and a willingness to listen, but I believe I can finally answer the following question: Why did Hillary Clinton lose the 2016 election?

The answer is simple: Words matter.

“Hold up Barsky! Donald Trump said a lot of horrible things in 2016! If words mattered, he wouldn’t be president,” said everyone who still can’t believe Clinton lost.

I’m going to take this a step further. I’m about to tell you the exact moment Clinton lost. It’s a moment everybody has seen and heard. I don’t have inside information, but I do have perspective that I believe will lead to a better understanding.

On Election Day in 2016, my wife, my children and I walked to our

4 District Attorney Races With Reform On The Ballot

4 DA Races Pitting ‘Law And Order’ Against Justice Reform

By Cara Bayles

November 2, 2020

Though “law and order” has repeatedly been invoked during the presidential election, the vast majority of criminal justice decisions are made by local lawyers whose names appear much further down the ballot. And this year, a handful of local prosecutor races are drawing national attention.

Elections in Los Angeles, Chicago, Phoenix and outside of Detroit are coming a few years after the U.S. saw a wave of so-called “progressive prosecutors,” candidates who differentiated themselves from traditional law-and-order rhetoric by focusing on the decriminalization of low-level crimes and alternatives to prison.

Their success on the ballot reflected changing attitudes about mass incarceration, and came soon after the 2014 police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, according to Northern Illinois University law professor Maybell Romero. Brown’s death sparked conversations about racial disparities in

Divorce During A Pandemic – D Magazine

Here’s divorce, and then there is divorce during a pandemic. Neither option sounds like a good time, but COVID-19 has placed an added layer of stress on married couples who decided 2020 is their year to part ways. As with everything else, COVID-19 has left its mark on family law. Many couples who sought a divorce at the first of the year are still waiting on a court date, as nearly all hearings and trials have been pushed back. Or, they are navigating the end of their marriages with their lawyers and the courts via Zoom meetings and hearings. Divorced couples with kids who finally got used to their possession schedules have found themselves having to negotiate terms all over again. If spring break never officially ended, when is it time to return the child to the other parent? Whose turn is it with the kids when weekdays meld into

Suspect in French Quarter NOPD officer shooting had no criminal record, no ties to domestic terrorism

Ferguson said investigators were still unsure what motive Hassell had when he allegedly shot at two NOPD officers with no warning Friday.

NEW ORLEANS — The man accused of trying to kill two NOPD officers sitting in their car in the French Quarter in a brazen daylight attack was a 20-year military veteran and isn’t associated with any domestic terrorism or anti-police groups, department leaders said Monday. 

Superintendent Shaun Ferguson provided the bits of background on 44-year-old Donnell Hassell during a briefing with media Friday. 

Ferguson said investigators were still unsure what motive Hassell had when he allegedly shot at two NOPD officers with no warning Friday. 

“We have no reason to believe he had any association with any of these type of groups,” Ferguson said. “We still do not have a motive for his actions.”

He noted that federal law enforcement agencies didn’t have Hassell on their radar before

Indonesia: Workers return to street to protest against jobs law, demand wage hike as Covid-19 cases hit above 415,000

JAKARTA, Nov 2 (The Jakarta Post/ANN): Protests against the Job Creation Law have entered their fifth week in Jakarta as workers stage yet another rally near the Presidential Palace in Central Jakarta to voice their opposition to the controversial law and the government’s decision not to increase the minimum wage.

Protestors from 32 labour unions, such as the Confederation of Indonesian Trade Unions (KSPI), All-Indonesia Workers Union Confederation (KSPSI) and the Indonesian Metal Workers Federation (FSPMI) flocked to Medan Merdeka Barat, located around one-kilometre from the Palace, beginning at 10am on Monday.

They carried banners to voice their protest against the Job Creation Law.

“Revoke the omnibus law on job creation, it is worse than Law No. 13/2003 on Manpower. The law will only impoverish workers and make them suffer,” one banner read.

They also demanded that the government raise minimum wages for 2021, after several provinces have announced to
