Moore: "Ryan Lochte -- how dare you say you had a gun pulled on you by a guy with a badge who demanded money from you when in fact you had a guy with a badge pull a gun on you and demand money from you!

"Matt Lauer said that wasn't a robbery -- it was a 'negotiation!' Oh ye gods of justice, I pray a man in a uniform pulls a gun on Matt Lauer tonight after the Billy Joel concert at the Garden and demand money from him because he pounded his mighty fist against one of those disgusting ad posters we men are forced to look at while relieving ourselves! Pull the gun on him and 'negotiate' with him, but don't hurt him, dear rent-a-cop!" read more

Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) is on Hillary Clinton's short list of potential vice presidential nominees. He's also actively pushing bank deregulation this week as he campaigns for the job.

Kaine signed two letters on Monday urging federal regulators to go easy on banks ― one to help big banks dodge risk management rules, and another to help small banks avoid consumer protection standards.

Gerald Duane Lewis, 26, who claims membership in Israel United in Christ, was arrested by police in Evansville, Indiana, on Monday, a day after Crystal Raquel Cash was shot in the face with a 9mm handgun. The victim told police the gunman used a homophobic slur during the assault, which occurred in a building where the victim operates a massage parlor and advertises "adult services" on Backpage.com.

On his Facebook page, the suspect claimed affiliation with Israel United in Christ (IUIC), a black separatist group that is one of 180 such hate groups currently identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

The shooting victim was hospitalized and is expected to recover. read more

A 32-year-old St. Paul, Minnesota, man died Wednesday night after being shot by a police officer during a traffic stop in the Falcon Heights suburb. The girlfriend of Philando Castile aired live video on Facebook of the incident that has been viewed over three million times. Lavish Reynolds claimed that Castile, a Montessori school cafeteria supervisor, told the officer he was licensed to carry a firearm and was reaching for his identification. The incident follows another in Baton Rouge that has revived the national debate over police treatment of black men. "We're not going to stand apart and allow this violence to continue," said Minnesota DFL Chair Ken Martin. "We're going to make the changes that need to be made and finally put a stop to this."

Asian-American enrollment at Brown and Yale has been stagnant since 1995 and at Dartmouth since 2004 despite an increase in highly qualified Asian-American students applying during that time.

In fact, data show Asian-Americans must score on average approximately 140 points higher than a White, 270 points higher than a Hispanic and 450 points higher than a Black student on the SAT, in order to have the same chance of admission. The groups suspect schools "impose racial quotas and caps to maintain what they believe are ideal racial balances," harkening back to the days of the Chinese Exclusion Act and the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.

Though the concept of race-preferential admissions undoubtedly came from a place of good intentions, it's become increasingly clear that these policies are doing more harm than good. read more

"Only an infant would not understand more to the situation and being caught."

What reason do you have to disbelieve swimmer Gunnar Bentz, who's never changed his story that there was no broken door and they never even went inside the bathroom?

"There was no restroom inside, so we foolishly relieved ourselves on the backside of the building behind some bushes. There was a locked door out back and I did not witness anyone breaking it open. I am unsure why, but while we were in that area, Ryan pulled to the ground a framed metal advertisement that was loosely anchored to the brick wall. I then suggested to everyone that we needed to leave the area and we returned to the taxi.

"Two men, whom I believe to have been security guards, then instructed us to exit the vehicle... As Jimmy and Jack were walking away from the vehicle, the first security guard held up a badge to me and drew his handgun. I yelled to them to come back toward us and they complied. Then the second guard drew his weapon and both guards pointed their guns at us and yelled at us to sit on a nearby sidewalk.

"Through the interpreter, one of the guards said that we needed to pay them in order to leave. I gave them what I had in my wallet, which was a $20 bill, and Jimmy gave them 100 Reals, which is about $50 in total.

"Videos of this situation have been emerging the last several days. However, I am confident that some video angles have not been shown that would further substantiate my account. I also believe some scenes have been skipped over. Additionally, I would like to stress that our original taxi was not pulled over; the only occupants of the taxi were the four of us and the driver; and to my knowledge, there was no damage done to the door or the inside of the restroom"
