Keep schools open, says the governor of South Dakota

She’s done her homework.

She is Gov. Kristi Noem. “When it comes to schools,” she says, “the science is clear: we need to open them.”

Her arguments?

[T]he virus doesn’t impact [the children] on the same level as the flu. A JAMA Pediatrics report states, “Our data indicate that children are at far greater risk of critical illness from influenza than from COVID-19.”

“SARS-CoV-2 appears to behave differently in children and adolescents than other common respiratory viruses, such as influenza, on which much of the current guidance regarding school closures is based,” says theAmerican Academy of Pediatrics.

Police Commission Demotes Milwaukee PD Chief For Using Teargas On Rioters

Removing the option when protesters riot no matter how bad things get. An anarchist’s dream.

Milwaukee, WI – The Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission (FPC) voted unanimously on Thursday night to demote Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales to captain.

Chief Morales, who was chief of the Milwaukee Police Department for three-and-a-half years, had been at odds with the FPC since the commission chair demanded that he fire the officer who arrested Milwaukee Bucks player Sterling Brown in 2018, the Wisconsin State Journal reported.

FPC commissioners recently took exception to the Milwaukee Police Department’s use of teargas to disperse rioters at violent protests.

Enabling the war on cops beyond the current situation.
