Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/10/21


 
3 Up

1. Capitol PD - So much has to be investigated into the obvious - why weren't they prepared for what we saw unfold this past Wednesday at the Capitol? And yes, the questioning-theory of an "inside-job" mentality regarding security measures cannot be 100% dismissed. However, let's give those who performed bravely and courageously, in what could have been an even more disastrous of a situation, some love. Stories like that of Eugene Goodman is what we need to highlight. God Bless those officers. 

2. Georgia Senate Race - Tuesday seems like 9 months ago. We did have a historic Georgia senate run-off, and it resulted in a historic result - the first black and Jewish senators to represent the state of Georgia. It was historic, and again, it feels like it happened so long ago. 

3. New York Mets - Francisco Lindor! The Mets have arguably the best shortstop in baseball now. And it is just the beginning for this franchise under the new ownership of Steve Cohen. Baseball should be fun in NYC this summer. 

3 Down

1. Capitol Riots/Terrorism - Welllllllllllllllllll, this is obvious, right? I've already said my piece on this. However, we're beginning to get even more footage and more details coming out of this madness - including the pointless death of and that have occurred - including one officer killed during the mayhem, and now, another who took his own life after responding to the riots. So, so, sad. 

And oh yeah, there were the bombs that were found as well. What?!!! We're still going to be unpacking this for awhile. 

2. Jacob Blake Verdict - This week was rough. Rusten Shaskey, who shot Blake eight times in his back, leaving him paralyzed, was not prosecuted. I want to say I'm shocked, but I'm not. Unfortunately - if we can get in the mindset of being even less fortunate this week - the events of the Capitol Riots were the stark contrast of the hypocrisy there is in law enforcement within this country. 

3. Hospitals on the Brink - And if 2021 hasn't carried over enough of 2020, the Coronavirus rages on in our country, killing more people per day than it did back in March 2020. From a new more transmissable variant that has been detected, to the horrifying images of Hospitals leaving patients on the curb due to operating at capacity, this pandemic is not going down easy - even with vaccines available.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/9/21

3 Up 1. Justice for Ahmaud Arbery - It won't bring Ahmaud back. It won't right the wrong done. I'm not even sure if it provides solace for his loved ones. However, having those three men finish their lives in prison is the most that could have been done. Kudos to Judge Timothy Walmsley and the point he made by holding a minute of silence to prove it was just a fraction of how long they chased Arbery.  2. Sidney Poitier - I learned about Poitier through a film class in High School. To this day, I'm thankful for a teacher to recognize the greatness of black actors and the contributions of others to the entertainment industry. From "To Sir with Love" to "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner", I adored his work, and him as a person. A life well-lived.
