Gun Violence Continued
It was another tragic weekend in the midst of our national epidemic of gun violence, with mass shootings taking place in Wisconsin, Texas, Nebraska, and Ohio. That was after the shooting last week at a FedEx warehouse in Indiana, which many have called to investigate as a hate crime against Sikhs. We discuss the shootings, as well as what’s happening in Minnesota in relation to the police killings of Daunte Wright and George Floyd.The worldwide death toll from COVID reached 3 million over the weekend. In lighter news, half of the U.S. population aged 18 and older has gotten at least one dose of a vaccine. The White House announced a plan to track variants. And in headlines: Republican lawmakers in Florida aim to make many forms of protest illegal, Biden walks back his decision to cap the number of refugees allowed into the U.S., and NASA will attempt to fly a helicopter on Mars.Show Notes:Washington Post Opinion: "Get police out of the business of traffic stops" – https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/04/16/remove-police-traffic-stops/WSJ: "J&J Covid-19 Vaccine Pause Driven by Risk of Mistreating Blood Clots" – https://www.wsj.com/articles/j-j-covid-19-vaccine-was-paused-over-blood-clot-treatment-concerns-11618777554Follow What A Day on Instagram at instagram.com/whatadayFor a transcript of this episode, please visit crooked.com/whataday.
