What To Do When You're Stopped By Police - The ACLU & Elon James White

Know Anyone Who Thinks Racial Profiling Is Exaggerated? Watch This, And Tell Me When Your Jaw Drops.

This video clearly demonstrates how racist America is as a country and how far we have to go to become a country that is civilized and actually values equal justice. We must not rest until this goal is achieved. I do not want my great grandchildren to live in a country like we have today. I wish for them to live in a country where differences of race and culture are not ignored but valued as a part of what makes America great.

Here’s what to know from the second day of testimony.

A second day of testimony in a hearing that could put a major snag in the prosecution of Donald J. Trump in Georgia began with a surprise, as the prosecutors’ office decided not to call Fani T. Willis, the Fulton County district attorney, back to the stand to resume combative testimony with defense lawyers seeking to disqualify her. 

Lawyers for Mr. Trump and his co-defendants were expected to move on to other witnesses on Friday, as the presiding judge considers whether Ms. Willis’s relationship with a special prosecutor whom she hired to manage the election interference case presents a conflict of interest. 

Thursday’s proceedings were marked by sharp exchangesbetween defense lawyers and Ms. Willis, who declared: “I’m not on trial. These people are on trial for stealing an election.”

Here are the details:

  • The defense accuses Ms. Willis of benefiting financially from a romantic relationship with Nathan Wade, the prosecutor she hired to run the case against Mr. Trump and his allies, who are accused of a conspiracy to overturn the state’s 2020 election results. If they are disqualified, it would delay and possibly derail the Trump prosecution.

  • The argument has been pressed primarily by Ashleigh Merchant, the lawyer for Michael Roman, a former Trump campaign official and a co-defendant in the case. Ms. Willis and Mr. Wade have acknowledged that they had a romantic relationship but said it had begun after he was hired on the case and that neither person had profited from it.

  • Testimony could extend into next week. The judge, Scott McAfee, is not expected to rule immediately.

  • Ms. Willis and Mr. Wade were grilled for hours on Thursdayabout their personal lives and finances, as defense lawyers tried to raise doubts that Ms. Willis had repaid Mr. Wade with cash for her share of expensive trips while they were dating, as they claim. Ms. Willis angrily accused the defense of spreading lies about her and Mr. Wade.”
