州当局は、選挙の信用を傷つけるトランプの圧力について証言している

おはようございます.

State election officials testified before the January 6 火曜日の委員会, ドナルド・トランプと彼の同盟国が彼らに圧力をかけて、結果を覆す方法を語る 2020 US presidential election in the weeks leading up to the deadly Capitol attack.

Trump continued his efforts even after members of his own party repeatedly told him that reversing the election results would violate state laws and the US constitution, the officials testified.

As a result of Trump’s persistence, election officials and poll workers were subjected to violent, hateful and at times racist threats from the former president’s supporters.

The hearing came days after the panel heard about Trump’s pressure campaign on his vice-president, マイクペンス, to interfere with the congressional certification of the results.

US senators have announced an agreement on a bipartisan gun violence bill, marking a small but notable breakthrough on gun control after recent mass shootings.

Nine days after Senate bargainers agreed to a framework proposal – and 29 years after Congress last enacted major firearms curbs – senators Chris Murphy, 民主党, and John Cornyn, 共和党, told reporters on Tuesday that a final accord on the proposal’s details had been reached.

The legislation would toughen background checks for the youngest firearms buyers, require more sellers to conduct background checks, and increase penalties on gun traffickers. It would also disburse money to states and communities aimed at improving school safety and mental health initiatives.

The bill also contains provisions to curb domestic violence, including prohibiting romantic partners convicted of domestic violence and not married to their victim from getting firearms. And it would provide money to the 19 states and the District of Columbia that have “red flag” laws that make it easier to temporarily take firearms from people adjudged dangerous, and to other states that have violence prevention programs.

のみ 54% of murders resulted in an arrest in 2021, according to analysis by Vital City, a journal at Columbia Law School focused on public safety. As the new “tough on crime” mayor, エリック・アダムス, launches a much-touted crackdown, pouring more money into the police and creating special new units arresting people for low-level offenses, a new idea is gaining hold among those experts: could the strategy of simply making more arrests backfire – and make crime worse? または, put another way, could fewer arrests reduce crime?

This year marks the 35th anniversary of one of the most striking picks in the NBA draft’s long history. に 1987, the Washington Bullets picked Muggsy Bogues – all 5ft 3in of him. Bullets fans had reason to doubt their team’s pick. Bogues is still the shortest NBA player ever, which caused many scouts to question his ability to survive, let alone thrive, in the league. Any fears were soon dispelled, しかしながら.

As more towns and cities bring in measures to curb traffic and the number of cars on the streets, the idea of converting parking spaces into “parklets” is gaining traction. These tiny green parks are part of a trend in urban rewilding by individuals that is increasing biodiversity across the world. “I called it Princess May Road community parklet, so people knew it was for everybody. Just today, I saw someone sitting there reading; three youngsters turned up and sat down for 10 分,” one rewilder said.

A man in Florida who had allegedly been kidnapped and was being held hostage as he drove was able to successfully alert police officers by driving erratically. The resident of Port St Lucie, who works as a dog breeder, was rescued by a highway patrol officer, having intentionally violated traffic laws in an attempt to get police to pull him over. “It worked,” said the Martin county sheriff’s office of his plan.
