. . . The New Republic is good, based solely on the litmus test, "Did they publish me?" So check out my report on how the US government covers for Border Patrol agents who shoot unarmed people.

I also covered a rowdy Police Commission hearing in Los Angeles in which protesters with Black Lives Matter were told that the city's ostensibly independent civilian review board could not actually discuss Ezell Ford, the unarmed 25-year-old who was shot by the LAPD last August. You can check that out over at Take Part.

And finally, for LAist, I wrote about the meeting that took place after that commission hearing between activists and LAPD Chief Charlie Beck. Read it.
