  Yes, the Georgia election law is that bad The debate over whether Georgia’s law really suppresses voting reveals just how imperiled American democracy is.In the New York Times, Nate Cohn concluded that “the law’s voting provisions are unlikely to significantly affect turnout or Democratic chances.” Slate’s Will Saletan notes that some provisions really are troubling, but that the bill also contains good provisions and that critics have “overhyped” their concerns. Brian Riedl, a senior fellow at the conservative Manhattan Institute, writes that “the idea this is an epic war on voting rights is simply absurd.

This Is the Recent Mass Shooting That Could End in Execution

  This Is the Recent Mass Shooting That Could End in Execution Both Robert Aaron Long and Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa were arrested last month for allegedly carrying out high-profile shooting sprees that killed a large number of people. Both crimes have revived our national debates about guns. But only one of the men has a realistic chance of ending up on death row. Colorado, where Alissa will face trial, is one of 23 states to have abolished the death penalty. Georgia, where Long was arrested, is one of 27 that still have the punishment on the books. It’s also among a smaller subset of 15 states that have actually executed someone in the last decade, according to the Death Penalty Information Center.

The tragedy happened just months after a prison officer in Indiana was killed following an altercation where he was stabbed by an inmate.

Indiana State Police Sgt. Ted Bohner said the inmate attacked the two correctional officers at the Indiana State Prison in Michigan City.

Both officers were taken to St. Anthony's Hospital in the city where one was pronounced dead.

Tymetri Campbell, 38, an inmate at the Michigan City Prison, faces several preliminary charges, including murder.

Campbell had been serving a sentence for three counts of murder, according to the Indiana Department of Correction website.
