WHAT’S RUSTLING MY JIMMIES

At least 85,000 law enforcement officers across the USA have been investigated or disciplined for misconduct over the past decade, an investigation by USA TODAY Network found.

Officers have beaten members of the public, planted evidence and used their badges to harass women. They have lied, stolen, dealt drugs, driven drunk and abused their spouses.

Despite their role as public servants, the men and women who swear an oath to keep communities safe can generally avoid public scrutiny for their misdeeds.

WHAT’S IN THE NEWS

In debt news, Social Security is facing a $42.1 trillion shortfall according to the Trustees report.

In collateral damage news, according to Amnesty International researchers, along with the monitoring group Airwars, coalition airstrikes in Raqqa, Syria killed at least 1,600 civilians, which is more than 10 times what they US said. Imagine that.

In bad boys news, in an extremely disturbing video, four black men were chained to a table in Lucasville, Ohio prison while a single white man was allowed access to a knife and brutally stab them. The graphic and hard to watch video is now the subject of a federal lawsuit filed earlier this month in the Southern District of Ohio.

In more bad boys news, a sunbather in California found out there’s no SPF strong enough to protect against cars after a police cruiser accidentally ran her over

And in even more bad boys news, body camera footage was just released showing two Connecticut cops jump out of their vehicles and attempt to murder an innocent unarmed couple.

In hero news, Chelsea Manning has been ordered to stay in jail after a federal court rejects her appeal.
