That's where investigators told her the family's Ring doorbell recorded the encounter. Investigators watched the video with Brennan and his mom. She says the video confirmed their suspicions.

"One of the things that stands out, that probably angers me the most is, while I was watching the tape, you can hear the wife say, 'Why did "these people" choose my house?'" she says, before taking a long pause. "Who are, "these people?" And that set me off. I didn't want to believe it was what it appeared to look like. When I heard her say that, it was like, but it is [what it looks like]."

So the wife instigated a racially motivated shooting because a teen asked her for some directions. Why isn't she being charged with her husband?

Thank god the kid didn't get hurt.

One project that we could start ourselves out with (assuming it hasn't already been made) could be a RemindMe bot, which sends you a message after the time that you set. It would help to remind people to reply to a thread after work, or something similar.

I would recommend Bookchin's "Anarchism, Marxism, and the Future of the Left -- Interviews and Essay, 1993-1998."

It gives a pretty good run-down of the development of leftist movements from his perspective, and presents the case for Communalism. Although, I'll go ahead and say that the essay "Whither Anarchism?" is just him ripping on other academics and I don't think there's a lot to be gained from the essay.

Edit: Spelling. I think I was a bit too hasty to say that there's nothing to be gained from "Whither Anarchism?" because he does put in some criticisms he has about developments in anarchism, like Anti-Rationalism and Primitivism.

Other things I would recommend would be the works of Simon Springer, like "The Anarchist Roots of Geography" which I'm trying to find the pdf for. The book details the history of anarchism in geography, talks about the need for Public Space in radical democracy, and the importance of agonism (versus antagonism) and integralism. He also makes some criticisms of David Harvey's statism.

If you want other essays by him, you might want to look up "Fuck Neoliberalism" and "Why a Radical Geography Must Be Anarchist." (Neither of which are great book club picks because they're short essays, but it's to give a glimpse into the kind of work he does)

Speaking of Harvey, I'd recommend his "A Brief History of Neoliberalism."
