A Vermont newspaper is apologizing to readers after publishing an offensive cartoon related to the Las Vegas shooting in its Tuesday print edition.
Under the heading, “Whatever happens in Vegas…,” the cartoon depicts dozens of bodies strewn across the ground. The cartoon appeared in the print edition of the Bennington Banner on Tuesday and was quickly criticized as depicting those who were killed Sunday night in Las Vegas while attending the Route 91 Harvest festival.
An apology online identified Randall Enos as the artist behind the cartoon. Enos’ work is distributed by Cagle Cartoons, a California-based cartoon distribution company.

CNN’s Jeff Zeleny inexplicably pointed out Monday after the Las Vegas shooting that many country music fans are likely Trump supporters.
Shortly after Trump delivered prepared remarks to provide solace to victims of the deadliest mass shooting in United States’ history, CNN asked Zeleny, a senior White House correspondent, to analyze the speech.
Zeleny said he found the speech to be “pitch perfect” but then asked people to “keep in mind” that many country music fans are Trump supporters.

A top legal executive at CBS, Hayley Geftman-Gold, said she “is not even sympathetic” for the victims of the shooting at a country music festival at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas Sunday night.
“If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing,” wrote Geftman-Gold on Facebook, perhaps referring to Sandy Hook.
“I’m actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are Republican gun toters.”
Later Monday, CBS announced that Geftman-Gold had been fired.

A psychopath white guy with a gun opened fire on an outdoor country music concert from a Mandalay Bay hotel room late Sunday, killing at least 50 people, injuring more than 200 and sending the Las Vegas Strip into chaos.
The massacre is the deadliest mass shooting in United States history.
The suspect, 64-year-old Mesquite resident Stephen Paddock, was killed by police on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel, Sheriff Joe Lombardo said early Monday.
Rot in hell.

Reno City Attorney Karl Hall has rejected the Reno Gazette-Journal’s request under the public records law for a copy of the report compiled by a secret police force that went undercover into local strip clubs to spy on operators and patrons.
Hall claims the report is protected by attorney-client privilege because it was prepared in anticipation of future lawsuits. Clearly he’s never heard of the U.S. Constitution and its Fourth Amendment.
He had no problems sharing the results of the investigation with Reno City Council members before they met to make a decision on ordinance changes that would force six adult-oriented businesses to close their existing clubs in the downtown area and move to industrial neighborhoods.
At least one council member, Jenny Brekhus, said the secret police investigation was critical to her decision-making process and necessary for the public record.
Enjoy your police state.

The Clark County School District Police Department, as of Saturday morning, was standing by its officer’s decision to deploy the pepper spray, and the unidentified officer had not been placed on administrative leave, Capt. Ken Young said.
“There’s nothing at this point that says he needs to be disciplined,” Young said. “For him to use the pepper spray, that doesn’t make it an automatic suspension.”
