Here’s what I’m reading up on this morning:

  • A white South Carolina trooper is charged for shooting a black unarmed motorist. 
  • The California Highway Patrol and Marlene Pinnock, who was senselessly beaten by officer Daniel Andrew, have come to a $1.5 million settlement; Andrew is also resigning as part of the settlement.
  • ESPN’s Bill Simmons is suspended after going in on NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. 
  • Researchers find a correlation between people who work 55 or more hours in "low socioeconomic status jobs" and Type 2 diabetes.
