Georgia officials dismiss 89 cases linked to fired officers shown kicking, punching motorist

Days after two officers in suburban Atlanta were fired when videos surfaced showing them kicking and punching a motorist, authorities have reportedly dismissed nearly 90 cases involving the pair.

The Gwinnett County Solicitor said she is dropping all cases in which Robert McDonald or Michael Bongiovanni were either the principal officer or a necessary witness. Sixty-three cases were dismissed in Gwinnett County Recorder's Court and 26 in Gwinnett County State Court, according to ABC affiliate WSB-TV in Atlanta.

All were misdemeanor or traffic offenses, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

McDonald and Bongiovanni were fired Thursday after videos emerged online showing a man being punched and kicked during a traffic stop, police said.

Warren: McConnell won't say hello to me

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said in a recent interview that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) brushes her off when she says hello.

In an interview with The Boston Globe about the release of her latest book, “This Fight Is Our Fight,” Warren said McConnell turns his head when she says hello.

“I’ve spoken to him, but he has not spoken to me,” Warren told the newspaper. “I say hello to Mitch every chance I get, and he turns his head.”

Georgia's Democrats amaze themselves with power of anti-Trump momentum in special election

by David Usborne

If Jon Ossoff pulls it off in Tuesday’s special election to Congress and steals Georgia’s Sixth District from the Republicans, who have held the seat since local boy Jimmy Carter was president, he will have an army of women to thank. (And two boys, Baxter and Emmett, in a little red wagon).

A slightly giddy insurgency has sprung up around Mr Ossoff, a beanpole 30-year-old and CEO of a documentary film-making company based in Harrow, northwest London, who has never before run for office.

It’s an April uprising pushing against the barricades of Republican hegemony in Georgia, if not quite the whole country. For weeks, bands of volunteers have been saturating its dogwood cul-de-sacs and manicured shopping malls urging voters to go Democrat in a special election set for 18 April.

These are the Ossoff women – and, yes, a few men – many of whom have never been involved in politics until now. They’ve found themselves swept up by a tide of shared astonishment: that they are not the only Democrats in their neighbourhoods, as they had always imagined, and that they have a unique chance to rebuke Donald Trump just as he nears the end of his first one hundred days.
