The Board of Education in Los Angeles has approved a budget that cuts one-third of the department’s police officers.
These were officers that were assigned to schools. The school district will replace these officers with “climate coaches,” people who will work to promote positive school culture and address bias. They are also tasked with coming up with an achievement plan for Black students.
The new plan also bans the use of pepper spray on students.
Los Angeles is not the only city to vote police officers out of its schools. Oakland, California, and Portland, Oregon have made similar choices.

A new lawsuit was filed against former President Trump, his lawyer Rudy Giuliani, the Proud Boys, and the Oath Keepers in their role in the Capitol riots. The suit was filed by Mississippi Representative Bennie Thompson in his personal capacity as a representative of the NAACP and civil rights firm Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll. It is seeking compensatory and punitive damages.
The former President and his lawyer will have to defend themselves personally. No government agency is a named defendant.
The suit alleges that the defendants violated the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871 which prohibits any action designed to prevent Congress from carrying out its duties. That does sound a lot like what happened. The suit was filed in the U.S. District Court of Washington, D.C.

400 pounds. That is the size of the arapaima fish that was found in Florida. It is the world’s largest-known predator fish and it is native to the Amazon. It is not supposed to be in Florida but one man discovered it while on a walk recently.
$50,584.75. That was the all-time high trading amount of Bitcoin on Tuesday. This is a 74% increase for the year.
$16,000. That is how much a Twitch streamer made in just seven hours by live-streaming his sleep and allowing viewers to compete for ways to wake him up. Sounds restorative.
20 years. That is how long New Zealand has had troops deployed to Afghanistan. The country’s Prime Minister announced that it will withdraw from the country by May.
President Biden said that he does not support student loan forgiveness up to $50,000 per person. He does support measures to forgive up to $10,000 per person though.
Legislation has been put forward by Senators Elizabeth Warren and Chuck Schumer that would do just that: Forgive up to $50,000 per person. When asked about it, the President on Tuesday said he would “not make that happen.”
He mentioned that his three children graduated with 6-figure student debt and managed to pay it off over time.
“I don’t think anybody should have to pay for that, but I do think you should be able to work it off.”
So you shouldn’t have to do that but you should be able to do it? We are not following this logic.
The President supports a plan to offer free community college to students from families that earn less than $125,000 per year.
Packing Heat North of the Border
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced broad new gun legislation that is expected to pass into law.
The legislation would allow municipalities to ban handguns, and restrict the storage and transport of handguns within their boundaries. It would also ban over 1,500 assault-style firearms, and offer a buyback program for guns. Violation of these new laws would carry a maximum penalty of two years in prison. Penalties for gun smuggling would increase to 14 years in prison.
The bill would also create something called a red and a yellow flag system that would allow friends and relatives to petition courts to take away firearms from others for various reasons such as mental illness or domestic abuse.
Last week President Biden asked Congress for new gun control laws that we predict will not pass with the same ease as those of the neighbors to the north. The best the U.S. can hope for is baby steps.
The researcher analyzed the weight of San Francisco, home to 7.75 million people. He calculates that it could weigh as much as 1.6 trillion kilograms based on the weight of buildings and their contents. When analyzing urban weight and considering groundwater depletion and rising sea levels, he estimates that there is a serious risk of “inundation.” Or sinking into the sea.
This study does not factor in the weight of people, vehicles, or city infrastructure. Oh boy. In this case, it’s probably a good thing that the pandemic has caused us all to spread out a little.
