Hanging deaths in US South recall painful history

Hanging deaths in southWhen a black teenager was found hanging from a swing set by a belt that was not his own one morning late last summer, the first thought by his friends, family, and community was that it wasn’t a suicide. Lennon Lacy, they believe, was lynched.

Woman Cites Religious Freedom Law To Defend Her Right To Feed The Homeless​

Woman cite religious freedom lawJoan Cheever of San Antonio has been serving meals to the city’s homeless for 10 years. But last week, police officers handed her a ticket with a potential fine of $2,000.

Cheever has argued that she has a right to feed the homeless under Texas’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act because she considers it exercising her religious beliefs.

Texas open carry gun lawTexas lawmakers are on the brink of passing “open carry” gun legislation that critics say will put the public at risk.

The Texas House voted 96-35 to provisionally approve the bill in Austin on Friday night. It will allow firearms owners in Texas who have concealed handgun permits –some 850,000 people – to openly carry their weapons in public in a hip or shoulder holster.

The scheme had been expected to pass earlier in the week but Democrats managed to stall it on a technicality and unsuccessfully tried to dilute it by giving large cities the right to introduce get-out ordinances. They also wanted to make it easier for private businesses to display signs prohibiting weapons on the premises.
