Hour 1: Cenk and John hosting. The shooting of Alton Sterling is discussed with cell phone video capturing the incident. 2 video angles of the shooting. Talk about police mantras of getting home safe and shooting suspects upon sight. Video of Sterling’s wife and son mourning his death at a news conference the day after his murder. Talk about the dehumanization of certain Americans that only justify killings like this.
Hour 2: Ana joins Cenk for SCS. Chelsea Manning attempted suicide from behind bars. A man posted a picture of himself burning the American flag on Facebook which prompted a series of death threats on him and his workplace. The authorities took action and arrested the man despite the fact that he can legally do it. They claimed that they wanted to protect the safety of customers and his fellow co-workers since the threat reached the store he works at.
