Cheat Sheet - Ferguson Protesters Want Darren Wilson Dead

Read This, Skip That ....

November 21, 2014
Even before the grand jury decides the fate of Michael Brown's killer, things are getting ugly in Ferguson, Missouri. Justin Glawe reports from a protest outside police headquarters where angry demonstrators harassed black police, accusing them of supporting a murderer—and chanted for the death of Officer Darren Wilson.

Adam Lanza was "completely untreated" in the years prior to him killing 27 people, the state of Connecticut concluded in a blockbuster report released Friday. The Office of the Child Advocate said Lanza "did not receive sustained, effective" treatment for a variety of mental-health problems and red flags about him were ignored in incident after incident. Instead, Lanza's parents and school officials merely treated his superficial symptoms, like lotioning his hands rubbed raw by excessive washing. What's more, Nancy Lanza pulled Adam out of treatment with Yale clinicians in 2007 to keep him happy. The clinicians had diagnosed Lanza with profound emotional disabilities and an unspecified biological disorder. They even sent Lanza's father an urgent email about medication and the need for treatment, but his mother rejected the plan. The report did make clear, however, that these missed opportunities would not necessarily have prevented the massacre.

For years the president has insisted he was no "emperor" and couldn't unilaterally enact the immigration measures he announced Thursday night. So what changed between then and now? Paul Campos explains the political gambit behind Obama's change of heart.
In a predominantly celebratory book, Bill Cosby's biographer deliberately glided over sex-abuse allegations, saying he was unable to substantiate them. Lloyd Grove talks to Mark Whitaker about "compartmentalization" and the downfall of Dr. Huxtable.

After making threats for months, House Republicans finally filed a lawsuit on Friday against the Obama administration for unilateral actions on the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. In its suit against the secretaries of Health and Human Services and Treasury, the GOP claims the administration unlawfully postponed the employer mandate. The suit also claims that the administration's $157 billion "giveaway" to insurance companies in the form of subsidies is illegal. "If this president can get away with making his own laws, future presidents will have the ability to as well. The House has an obligation to stand up for the Constitution, and that is exactly why we are pursuing this course of action," Speaker John Boehner said in a statement.
