  •   cwalls_1120 @graceaq it is about race. The uproar is over a black man being killed. If it were a white man nobody would have complained. Everything is about race. 2d
  •   wolfmomma62 I'm white and I hate to see anyone getting a bum deal from the cops. It's not just black folks this kind of treatment happens to. 2d
  •   graceaq @cwalls_1120 That's not true. I've seen news reports about James Whitehead and Bryce Masters. Both white, both claimed police brutality. Police brutality is never okay no matter what the race of the cop or the victim. 2d

nbcnews A boat is dwarfed by a tall, bleached "bathtub ring" on the rocky banks of Lake Powell in Page, Arizona. As severe drought grips parts of the western United States, a below average flow of water is expected to enter Lake Powell and Lake Mead, the two biggest reservoirs of the Colorado River Basin. Lake Powell is currently at 45 percent of capacity and is at risk of seeing its surface elevation fall below 1,075 feet above sea level by September, which would be the lowest level on record. The Colorado River Basin supplies water to 40 million people in seven western states. Click the link in our profile to see more images from Lake Powell.

  •   defuturo The only reason why she got away with murder is the incompetence of the police in Italy. They mishandled the evidence and breeched international law several times during her interrogation. Obviously the defence milked these weaknesses until she was acquitted. I agree with Alan Dershowitz on this case. The evidence was sufficient and she should have been extradited following a conviction. I guess justice can be undermined for political gain sometimes. 4w
