RIP Nokie Edwards, May 9, 1935 - March 12, 2018
I just bought my 45th Ventures album last weekend. Nokie isn't on all their stuff, but I love his playing.

RIP, my deep respect...

Marielle Franco, councillor and police critic, shot dead in targeted killing in Rio

Franco, known for her social work in Brazil’s slums, had accused police officers of using heavy-handed tactics


Image

A city council member and her driver have been shot dead by two attackers on a downtown street in Rio de Janeiro in what appeared to be a targeted assassination.

Richard Nunes, Rio’s head of public security, said there would be a “full investigation” into the killing of council member Marielle Franco and her driver, which came despite the military taking charge of policing the city last month after a surge in violence.

Two police officials told Associated Press that two men in a car fired nine shots into the vehicle carrying the popular 38-year-old councillor and her driver, Anderson Pedro Gomes. A press officer in the back seat was injured, but survived, the officials said.

Both officials said it appeared Franco was targeted.

Franco was a black woman who defied the odds of Rio politics to win the fifth highest vote count among council members when she was elected in 2016. She was an expert on police violence and on Saturday accused officers of being overly aggressive in searching residents of gang-controlled shantytowns.

A member of a leftist party, Franco was also known for her social work in slums. She was in her first term in office. Her party called for a march on Friday to protest against violence in Rio.

One of Franco’s last posts on Twitter called attention to police violence.

“Another homicide of a young man that could be credited to the police. Matheus Melo was leaving church when he was killed. How many others will have to die for this war to end?” she wrote.

Brazil’s public security minister, Raul Jungmann, said federal police would help investigate her killing.

On 16 February, Brazil’s federal government put the military in charge of Rio’s local police amid a spike in violence. So far there are no indications of improvement in security in the city.

My wife used to be like that.

I found out that letting her suffer was the best thing to do.
Eventually, she comes back as a normal person.

That's a highly sexist and offensive remark, Mij. Most women know how to carry their burden with grace.

I was thinking the same thing. I don't think he meant any harm, though.

True, but I believe it's better to correct people when they make such remarks than to let it slide and have him make worse remarks.

That's funny it came up. These days I addressed students saying I was having my period (so as to justify my bad temper). Next day, the 1st thing I did was to apologize to all women for the unfortunate sexist remark (I only realized afterwards).

It’s kind of an interesting topic. I was just watching Bill Maher and Billy Bush, the tv host that was with Trump when he made the “grab ‘em by the pussy” comment, was a guest. The panel was talking about how it’s not ok not to address people when they cross those kinds of lines. I agree but I’m sure we’ve all been guilty of not calling people on it or even correcting ourselves at times in the past. At the same time Maher goes on to call Democrats “pussies” for not being as tough politically as Republicans. Isn’t using that word to call out a weakness also sexist?

I believe, in that instance, "pussy" equates to "wimp". 8)

wimp

informal

noun
1. a weak and cowardly or unadventurous person.
synonyms: coward, namby-pamby, pantywaist, milksop, weakling, milquetoast
verb
1. fail to do or complete something as a result of fear or lack of confidence.
"anyone who wimped out because of the weather missed the experience of a lifetime"

No offenses meant with my "period" remark.
It's just that it was something real, well at least with my lady.
Her temper switched to mad.
Now it's gone.
Part of human life, that's all.
