“Apparently there are those who think that if you force the police to follow the rules then somehow it hurts their ability to solve my son’s murder." "And that makes no sense." Powerful @FilmThePoliceLA interview, from @abene_writes: https://t.co/L4hp5p9OqM

New from me: Two young Black men were murdered within days of each other on two different sides of the state. Both of their stories have been caught up in a political debate, further traumatizing their families and loved ones https://t.co/T9Q0COZNhx

The Senate and House speakers control the 2nd floor of the Capitol and have given media OK to be here. An executive branch employee tried to tell me “Department of General Services” controls the area, which is nonsense. The speakers are apparently intervening to ensure access.

I was just surrounded by troopers trying to force me to leave the second floor of the Capitol where the Forrest bust is located. I refused to leave. After back and forth with the governor’s office, they’ve now agreed to let the other media back up there, but behind a rope.

The workshop will be an online intensive course with space for 30 photo, video and print journalists. (10 per day on August 12, 13 and 14) An additional six spots (2 per day) will be given for free to BIPOC journalists in financial need. (You can DM or email me to get a spot!)

Every year I get an overwhelming amount of questions by journalists on wildfire coverage and how to do it in California. So this year, I've put a workshop together to share what I know! @spj_tweets @IJNet @ICFJ @NPPA @NAHJ https://t.co/1QPFIf4EFx

In March of this year, @loisbeckett wrote about the international growth of the misogynist incel movement. https://t.co/TB15kNNtHU

Quoted @woodruffbets

DOJ charges a self-described incel who attended Army basic training at Ft. Benning with planning a mass shooting of women at Ohio sororities: https://t.co/vLeQkzc75u

Whenever I see these kinds of reports, I think about the École Polytechnique massacre in 1989, and more broadly about the persistence of mass violence against women as an instrument of terror and control. https://t.co/SH2WUXp8Oz

How do you get east coasters to care about wildfires in the west? Make it a New York smog story, of course! https://t.co/2cqXSw1zEy

And now, some news about me. I am so excited to take on this new role at NPR -- it's my dream job. At the same time, I'm tremendously sad no longer to work alongside my incredible colleagues at WBEZ. Hope you will continue listening to them, as I will! https://t.co/woWZaZMewv

Wanted to say how grateful I am for all the messages of support these past few days, especially from my @guardian colleagues around the world. When you're physically targeted while reporting, knowing your colleagues have your back is essential. I appreciate all of you so much.
