Newsweek:CALIFORNIA PROSECUTOR WHO QUESTIONED WHY MAXINE WATERS HADN'T BEEN SHOT SUSPENDED BY SAN BERNARDINO D.A.
Washington Post: Prosecutor who reportedly suggested Maxine Waters be shot is placed on leave
New York Times:
The latest from Shaun King:
"I have an update on Deputy District Attorney Michael Selyem: he was officially suspended after over 10,000 of you made calls and emailed their office yesterday demanding action.
It's not enough, after what this violent, sexist, bigot said about Rep. Maxine Waters. But it's at least a start.
For a long time, DAs and their staff were ignored by the progressive movement, even though they wield tremendous power when it comes to issues like racism, discrimination, generational poverty, and mass incarceration.
But what we accomplished yesterday, and what we've accomplished so far at Real Justice proves that we can have an impact if enough of us come together, pay attention, and fight.
Congratulations on helping us get this monster suspended. Next step, we're getting him fired for good."a moving discussion by journalist shaun king CALIFORNIA PROSECUTOR WONDERS WHY 'GHETTO' MAXINE WATERS HASN'T BEEN SHOT
