Puppies, amiright? I think if I could choose how to die, being crushed by a litter of adorable puppies would be the way to go. Not everyone feels this way, obviously, like the monkey in this vid – here it is being surrounded by newborn puppies but it just looks at the camera like, what…how…what does one do with all these puppies!?

The Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act – An Analysis of Its Controversy

Originally posted on IN Advance:

I have a posted a follow-up in order to address some, but not all, questions I have received over the past few days.

Also, here is a recent story from ABC Indianapolis regarding these points.

I will preface this post by saying that I am not a supporter of the Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act (IRFRA), a/k/a Ind. Code § 34-13-9, et seq. As this post goes on, those reasons will become self-evident but it is mostly because it is so vague and just a poorly written law. However, more than anything, there is a shocking lack of actual analysis of this statute and several arguments are being thrown out there which are rather unfounded. As an Indiana citizen and lawyer, I will do my best to provide insight as to what this bill purports to do and why it has drawn the ire of so many both within and without the…

5 Things to Know About the Governor Behind Indiana’s Controversial New Law

Originally posted on TIME:

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence waded into a fervid national controversy last week when he signed into law a bill that critics say would allow businesses to discriminate against gays and lesbians in his state. A relative unknown on the national stage until recently, the Republican found himself facing protests and sharp questions over the weekend. The measure Pence signed says Indiana can’t “substantially burden” the religious freedom of people, businesses and associations in the state. But critics say it’s a blank check for discrimination, and would allow businesses to refuse service to gays and lesbians. Pence defended the law Sunday, telling ABC: “This is not about discrimination this is about empowering people to confront government overreach.”

It may not be the best national publicity for Pence, who has been called a “dark horse” for the Republican presidential nomination. Here are five things to know about the man in the…

Andreessen Horowitz-Backed Leap Buses Are Hitting San Francisco’s Streets This Week

Originally posted on TechCrunch:

Leap – Your daily commute. Redesigned. from Leap on Vimeo.

It’s been a year in the making.

Transit startup Leap is finally launching in San Francisco with completely overhauled buses and a route from the Marina to the downtown area.

The startup, which is trying to rethink mass transit, is competing with a host of other shared transit companies from Y Combinator-backed Chariot to ride-pooling startup Loup and of course, Uber and Lyft.

Leap, however, is aimed at regular commuters who are doing a predictable route every day and may not want to jump for the price points of on-demand services like Uberpool and Lyft Line. Tickets cost $6 individually or $5 in packs of 20. If you use commuter benefits, you can get the cost down to $4 a ride, according to co-founder Kyle Kirchhoff.

The buses circulate every 10 to 15 minutes and take about 25 minutes to go…

President Barack Obama to Give Speech Marking ‘Bloody Sunday’

Originally posted on TIME:

President Barack Obama is set to give a speech Saturday afternoon marking the 50 years that have passed since a violent attack on protesters by police in Selma, Ala., that became known as “Bloody Sunday” and set into motion the passage of increased voting rights for African-Americans.

The speech will provide the nation’s first black president an opportunity to reflect publicly on the efforts of many throughout history who made his presidency a reality. It also arrives amid a series of present-day challenges that have forced Americans to confront how far the country has progressed since that confrontation between marchers and police officers on the Edmund Pettus Bridge a half century ago.

This week, a Justice Department report revealed deep prejudices among police officers in Ferguson, Mo., where an unarmed black teenager was killed by a white police officer last year. Throughout the past year, the names of young black…

Protestors Demand Chicago Police Close Homan Square Facility

Originally posted on CBS Chicago:

CHICAGO (CBS) — Accusations by a British newspaper of brutality at a West Side Chicago police facility prompted about 75 to protest and demand its closure, reports WBBM’s Bob Roberts.

The Guardian newspaper calls the Homan Square narcotics investigation facility a “black site” at which those arrested are beaten and denied access to lawyers and others. Police have denied the allegations.

[cbs-audio-player artist=”WBBM 780’s Bob Roberts” download=false image=”https://cbschicago.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/homan-square.jpg” url=”https://cbschicago.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/mp3_bc-wav-carts-homan-w2.mp3″ station_name=” WBBM 780/105.9FM” station_logo=”http://cbschicago.files.wordpress.com/2014/04/wbbm-icon.jpg”]

The protestors want Homan Square shut down and a thorough investigation of Chicago police detention and interrogation policies. Protestor Andy Thayer focused his wrath on Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

“I’m sorry Mr. Mayor, but you’ve lied to us about enough other things that we’re not just going to take your word for it that things are just fine and hunky dory in the building behind us here,” Thayer said.

Mike Holmgren of the Stop Mass Incarceration Network says…

Miami cops are sending fake data to Waze to stop people from knowing speed trap locations

Originally posted on BGR:

In recent years, Waze has established itself as one of the most useful apps that drivers can have on their phones. The crowdsourced traffic app lets users send updates to other drivers in real time, alerting them to accidents, detours and speed traps. But police officers aren’t too happy about that last particular use.

Surveillance video has been released of the moment 17-year-old Kristiana Coignardwas gunned down by the police in Longview, Texas last week.

The Longview Police Department released the 23-minute-long video, which shows the teen in several scuffles with officers after entering the police station while allegedly wielding a butcher knife. Coignard’s aunt Heather Robertson claims the teen battled bipolar disorder and depression since the death of her mother.

Glenn Derr, the first officer to arrive, can be seen tackling the teen. More police officers convene soon after, including Grace Bagley, who was on the scene for just a few seconds before fatally shooting Coignard. Police claim they used Tasers on the teen to restrain her, but they didn’t work.

According to Think Progress:

Derr quickly gets off her back but Coignard remains on the ground. At this point, Derr appears to have his gun drawn. At 10:50, the second officer,
