God, our judge, we plead our case with you. Lay your Divine hand upon the outcome of this (Derek Chauvin) case and also on our compatriots' anger, thoughts of revenge, and the insatiable need to disrupt and destroy. Stay any inclinations toward violence and remind us that vengeful behavior is no more justified than the acts of those who precipitated this grief and harm and ignited our cities. As you inevitably judge our response to the incidents of unrest that plague our land, forgive our iniquities and heal our brokenness. Redeem the soul of our country. Today's opening prayer in Congress delivered by Rear Admiral Margaret Grun Kibben (ret) covers every facet of America's dilemmas with right and wrong, race equity,
The New York Times released a video simulation and multiple reports recapping the shooting of Breonna Taylor by Louisville Metro Police Department officers last March. It is compelling on many fronts and illustrates the tragedy of Taylor's death juxtaposed with the challenges for law enforcement safely serving warrants. No cameras captured the final minutes of Breonna Taylor’s life. We used crime scene evidence and testimony to reconstruct what happened and show the mistakes that led to her killing by police.

The FBI to review the Jussie Smollett case dismissal after President Trump calls it "outrageous" and an "embarrassment" in a tweet, @Miguelnbc has the very latest. pic.twitter.com/8v1l4EUo1u— TODAY (@TODAYshow) March 28, 2019 Actor Jussie Smollett walked away from 16 charges related to a hoax racial attack that police say Smollett orchestrated to heighten his fame. It worked. All charges have been dropped without an admission of guilt. Smollett's $10,000 in bail money was not returned and he agreed to two days of community service. And that's that. "Is it your position that he is in fact factually innocent?" @SavannahGuthrie to Jussie Smollett's attorney, Tina Glandian. pic.twitter.com/qHDY59xggG— TODAY (@TODAYshow) March 28, 2019 Anyone with a brain can shoot holes in Smollett's story.
Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-3) joined me on 840WHAS to discuss his tweets damning the students of Covington Catholic high school as "appalling" and displaying "racist hatred" at a January field trip to DC. Yarmuth declined to apologize for tweeting before learning the wider story of a group of adult Herbrew Israelites hurling abusive, homophobic language at the students, and how additional video showed that the Native American group approached the students. Initial social and traditional media accounts reported that the students "swarmed" the Native Americans to mock and intimidate the elders. Whoooooaaaaa. Slow your roll, rush-to-judgment team. The videos don't lie. Agenda-driven social justice warriors supplying limited views do lie. Student Nick Sandmann appeared on TODAY to tell his story. It was
