Everybody must get Stoned

Well, they’ll stone you when you’re trying to be so good
They’ll stone you just like they said they would
They’ll stone you when you’re trying to go home
And they’ll stone you when you’re there all alone
But I would not feel so all alone
Everybody must get stoned

Trump on the arrest of Roger Stone (spoiler alert: Stone survived): (NBC News article)

President Donald Trump said he will “think about” asking the FBI to review its tactics and Sen. Lindsey Graham has demanded a briefing from the agency after its early morning arrest of Trump’s longtime associate Roger Stone at his Fort Lauderdale, Florida, home last week.

In an interview with The Daily Caller on Wednesday, Trump blasted the arrest of Stone by armed federal agents in the pre-dawn hours on Friday.

“I’m speaking for a lot of people that were very disappointed to see that go down that way,” Trump said. “To see it happen, where it was on camera, on top of it, that was a very, very disappointing scene.”

Trump’s comments come after Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray questioning the manner in which Stone was arrested, including “the number of agents involved, the tactics employed” and the timing.

Breonna Taylor, African-American medical worker, Louisville, Kentucky (New York Times):

What happened in Louisville?

Shortly after midnight on March 13, Louisville police officers, executing a search warrant, used a battering ram to enter the apartment of Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old African-American emergency room technician. 

Ms. Taylor and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, had been in bed, but got up when they heard a loud banging at the door. After a brief exchange, Mr. Walker fired his gun. The police also fired several shots, striking Ms. Taylor at least eight times.

According to The Louisville Courier Journal, the police had been investigating two men who they believed were selling drugs out of a house that was far from Ms. Taylor’s home. But a judge had also signed a warrant allowing the police to search Ms. Taylor’s residence because the police said they believed that one of the two men had used her apartment to receive packages. The judge’s order was a so-called no-knock warrant, which allowed the police to enter without warning or without identifying themselves as law enforcement.

No drugs were found in the apartment, a lawyer for Mr. Walker said. 

Ms. Taylor’s mother, Tamika Palmer, said her daughter had had big dreams and planned a lifelong career in health care after serving as an E.M.T.
