RAGE TRIGGER of the DAY: Brooklyn, NY father arrested and injured after confronting teacher about not letting 7-yo son use bathroom. Vincent Nemorin was put in handcuffs after questioning the second grader’s teacher at PS 193 Wednesday about why his son was allegedly left sitting in feces for hours. People who were previously, vocally concerned about this sort of thing are conspicuously silent.
OHIO MAN GOES FULL FLORIDA: A naked man wielding a “lengthy and pretty thick” homemade spear in Ohio was shot by deputies as he charged at them during an ambush attack, sheriff officials said Wednesday.

JOURNO OUTRAGED by PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY: “I’m sick of society telling women we must protect ourselves from violent men,” writes (bad) freelance journo Tayo Bero in The Guardian.

LET’S GO, BRANDON: “F*** Biden” was visible on flags and signs carried by a crowd of protesters gathered along M-59 in Livingston County, a deeply conservative part of the state. U.S. Rep. Elissa Slotkin, D-Holly, said she was “embarrassed” by the profane message as she sat next to the president, who pointed out the signs as they passed by the rally. Good job, Michiganders. We need more of this. Remind this administration of their pariah status whenever they appear in public.
