— FRONT PAGE: ‘We grieve with the Floyd family’: Police meet Chauvin verdict with cheers, fears, uncertainty – Burt Constable (DIERSEN: Each and every Republican Precinct Committeeman in DuPage County should know what Mendrick has said about the Chauvin verdict (SEE BELOW). Needless-to-say, each and every Republican leader in DuPage County should encourage each and every Republican Precinct Committeemen in DuPage County to read GOPUSA ILLINOIS newsletters.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: DuPage County Sheriff James Mendrick said he supports a bodycam system that activates the cameras of every officer at the scene whenever one pulls out a gun or Taser. “I want the public to see exactly what we’re doing from every angle,” he said. Calling Floyd’s murder an “atrocity,” Mendrick said his deputies are getting training in avoiding violent confrontations. “Anything that can drop the level of force is desired,” Mendrick said, adding that Tasers give officers an option between bare hands and a deadly gun. As an officer, he carried a Taser for 11 years. “I never had to pull the trigger,” said Mendrick, who would explain the Taser to offenders. “Please don’t make me do this.” DuPage County deputies also are getting training in how to deal with mental health issues, crisis intervention and diversity training with the NAACP. Interviews with inmates showed that one of the major reasons for confrontations is when police ask people of color for identification without probable cause. “We’re using that to guide our training,” Mendrick said.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: In the prelude to the 1995 assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin by an ultranationalist Israeli settler, many blamed then-opposition leader Netanyahu for contributing to — or at least failing to quell — violence and hate among his right-wing base. Weeks before the killing, Netanyahu stood on a balcony above Jerusalem’s Zion Square, where thousands of right-wing protesters vowed to “get rid of” Rabin, whom they called a “traitor” and a “Nazi” for signing a peace agreement with the Palestinians earlier that year.)
