Grand Jurors In Breonna Taylor’s Case File Petition To Impeach Attorney General Daniel Cameron

A petition calling for Kentuck State leaders to impeach Attorney General Daniel Cameron was filed on Friday. According to the Courier-Journal, three grand jurors in the Breonna Taylor case filed the petition through their attorney, Kevin Glogower, because they believed Cameron misrepresented the grand jury’s findings. They also alleged that the Republican lawmaker’s conduct was inappropriate and that he violated the public’s trust.

In the high-profile case, Cameron was the special prosecutor and presented evidence against the police officers accused of killing the 26-year-old woman during a drug raid gone wrong.

Brett Hankinson, one of the three cops involved in the shooting, was indicted– but not for murdering Taylor.

Language in the petition stated Cameron told jurors that they could revisit homicide charges once he announced Hankinson’s indictment. That never came to pass, the publication reported.     

“Neither Cameron nor anyone from his office mentioned any homicide offense to the grand Read the rest

Minnesota rethinks how it supports entrepreneurs and businesses

As cities and states face pandemic-induced budget shortfalls, they’re struggling to create playbooks to help businesses get back on their feet and put millions of unemployed Americans back to work.

The Brookings Institution projects that state and local government revenues will decline $167 billion in 2021, and $145 billion a year after that.

That doesn’t leave local and state policymakers with a lot of levers to pull to stimulate economic growth.

That puts the onus on these leaders to strike a careful balance: Come up with creative ways to help these businesses without depleting key funds that are needed to keep emergency service workers and teachers employed, as well as deliver adequate services to residents.

Thankfully, there are some models for supporting businesses of every shape and size, whether brick-and-mortar Main Street stores or home-based digital enterprises.

Google CEO To Met With HBCU Leaders Following Racism Allegations

Google CEO Sundar Pichai will meet virtually with the presidents of five historically Black colleges and universities (HBCU) following racism and sexism allegations made by two former Black employees.

In December 2020, former Google AI researcher Timnit Gebru and former diversity recruiter April Curley both tweeted that they were fired from the tech giant after raising concerns about the lack of Black employees and how current Black employees were treated.

Curley, who was responsible for HBCU recruitment at Google, said her superiors believed HBCU computer science graduates didn’t have the skills to work there and undermined her efforts. However, Google maintains Gebru resigned and was not fired.

The departures from the company set off a firestorm in the industry and an HBCU recruiting firm terminated its partnership with Google as a result.
