Thoughts and prayers to the family of a fellow MU alum. Give the accused a fair trial.   If he is found guilty, give him the maximum sentence.
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

American journalists are under attack now more than ever. One of the first major steps toward authoritarianism is for would-be autocrats to try to paint the free press as "the enemy of the people."

Agree. New York Post journalists being attacked and accused of printing Russian disinformation by elements in law enforcement, US intelligence, the government and the news media - when they all knew better - was disgraceful.

Any attack is unjustified and disgraceful, yes.
There were 681 attempts to ban or restrict access to a record 1,651 different books in schools through August of this year. What books? Mainly those written by or about people of color or that deal with LGBTQ issues.

RIP.

Yes, it is open season on "the enemy of the people" because those in power don't like to have their corruption exposed.

Always has been this way, it's certainly a known risk when you're a journalist and covering these type of stories.

No one is excusing the behavior.

Yes, but unfortunately the anger, and the incidents of violence, have increased the last half-dozen years or so in America.

Nobody from any profession should have to fear being murdered just for doing his or her job. I know journalists aren't the only ones. But this is a current story, so it sticks out. And yes, I fully acknowledge that this is an area that especially interests and concerns me.

Yes, we know you don't like Trump, and are somehow trying to blame him for this without coming out and saying it.

But trying to equate Trump to this particular instance is a stretch.

Not to mention that it was a D politician that was the murderer.

But OMB in Mike's world.

Every evil thing that Democrat politicians do are Trump’s fault. Guess you didn’t get the memo.

82 and his reflexive "Trump!" is like Uncle Leo blaming everything on anti-semites.

How reporters hunted down German’s killer.

Thanks for posting, Dr. B. Inspiring work by these reporters. Jeff German would have been proud of them.

Huh? The article you linked literally says he was a native of Milwaukee.

Also, given that hundreds of thousands of people have moved to Las Vegas in the last 25 years or so, it shouldn't be surprising that some of them are journalists.
Have some patience, FFS.
