Cop who sought GOP state senate nomination allegedly punches Democratic candidate during Roe rallyJeann Lugo, who was seeking the GOP nomination to run for the same state senate seat, said he was 'not going to deny' the punching allegation, but added that 'everything happened very fast.' OFFICER Jean Lugo. Who was relieved of duty and not arrested. She’s supposedly equal in every way so it was mutual combat and she lost. Considering the de facto 'Antifa/BLM' rule, throwing a punch on the street seems to be not worthy of prosecution. He gets a pass. If he's prosecuted, it's a signal of bias on the part of the prosecutor, who should be thrown out of office and sued civilly.

‘Cruel’ or ‘courageous’: GOP, Democrats deeply divided after Roe reversalThe Supreme Court has overturned the nearly 50-year-old federal precedent protecting the right to an abortion – a move that, though highly expected, still generated both outrage and elation across the country.

What GOP-named justices had said about Roe to Senate panelThe nine justices of the Supreme Court, in a landmark ruling Friday, made clear their views on abortion, with the conservative majority overturning the Roe v. Wade decision from 1973 and stripping away women’s constitutional protections for abortion. With a headline like that no one will have to doubt your bias. This is not accurate. Find the constitutional protection and print it. Life wins. Babies win.
