Screenshot from ABC’s “American Crime”In an era marked by so many divisions, hateful ideas, and willful ignorance, it is refreshing to see a major television network producing such an honest, probing, and emotional series. It helps that ABC’s anthology series American Crime, now in its third season, was created by Academy Award winner and 12…

A video posted by a bicyclist in Southern California has shown just how bad homelessness is getting California. The video captured the extent of a rapidly growing tent city along the Santa Ana Trail in Anaheim.
A different video posted in January actually suggests that the sprawling encampment stretches for miles along Route 57.
According to an Infowars article, homeless activists estimate that the tent city could have as many as 1,000 people. The locals are growing increasingly worried about the situation as trash and human waste accumulate, and assaults and robberies grow more common along the trail. And all of this is occurring in the same city that houses Disneyland.
Clearly the economy is in great shape and California is perfectly stable, right?

Another Indigenous Human Rights Activist Killed in Colombia
Alicia Lopez Guisao, a leader of Colombia’s Asokinchas community, helped distribute food to Indigenous and Afro-descendant communities.
Colombian Indigenous and campesino leader Alicia Lopez Guisao was killed in Medellin on Thursday, adding to the growing list of recently murdered human rights activists in the South American country.
The number of social and human rights defenders killed in the last 14 months now stands at at least 120, according to a Friday press release from the Defense of the People.
“The retreat of the FARC from the zones where they previously exercised control has allowed for the entrance of new armed actors who fight for territorial and economic dominance,” states the report. This marks a concerning trend requiring immediate action since the attacks are “pertaining to groups with similar characteristics, and which occurred in the same period and geographic area,” it adds.
Guisao, who was shopping at a grocery store at 8:45 am local time, was shot repeatedly by two unknown gunmen who entered the store, El Tiempo reports.
The People’s Congress, the left-wing organization that Guisao worked for organizing Indigenous peasants, believes the gunmen may have been connected to right-wing paramilitary groups.
“With great sadness and indignation we received and transmitted the news of the murder of comrade Alicia Lopez Guisao,” The People’s Congress said in a statement.
“Her murder is an example of the fact that the right-wing organizations that operate today in the city of Medellin are the same paramilitaries who have murdered others in recent years.”
