Also: We talk with Lynn Parramore, at the Institute for New Economic Thinking, about how hedge funds get in the way of the big changes all kinds of companies need to make to fight climate disruption.
Stan (reading from published article) After Strong Backlash, NYPD Kicks Robotic Dog "Spot" to the Curb
Article 4-30-2021 by Kenny Stancil, published at https://www.commondreams.org/news/2021/04/30/after-strong-backlash-nypd-kicks-robotic-dog-spot-curb 2021
The New York City Police Department decided this week to stop leasing a robotic dog from Boston Dynamics following a sustained outcry from residents and lawmakers, who denounced the use of the high-tech, four-legged device in low-income neighborhoods as a misallocation of public resources and violation of civil liberties. When the NYPD acquired the K-9 machine last August, officials portrayed "Digidog"—the department's name for the camera-equipped, 70-pound robot—as "a futuristic tool that could go places that were too dangerous to send officers," the New York Times reported earlier this week. ...

Stan (reading from published article) Killology Inc: America's Police ["trainer" shouts "shoot first and think later"]
Article 4-7-2021 by Abby Zimet published at https://www.commondreams.org/further/2021/04/27/killology-inc-americas-police 2021
The murders by cop go on - the latest, Lymond Moses, was asleep in his car - prompting furious calls for police reform from many weary of the carnage. Along with systemic racism, rabid militarization, fascist police unions, no accountability and infamously inadequate if not deranged training, we can thank messianic warrior-cop, uber fear-mongerer and "killology" expert Dave Grossman, a former Army ranger who for 20 years has traveled almost daily to every state in the blood-soaked union to offer popular police "trainings" to tell young acolytes they're "the royalty of this land" - alas, a war zone of thugs and terrorists where they must learn to fight back with "righteous violence," shoot first and think later ...
