Rage Against the Machine Donating Ticket Sales to Reproductive Rights Organizations

Rage Against the Machine will donate nearly half a million dollars to reproductive rights organizations in Wisconsin and Illinois, as the band announced on social media last night (June 24). “We are disgusted by the repeal of Roe V. Wade and the devastating impact it will have on tens of millions of people,” the group wrote in an Instagram post. “Over half of the country (26 states) is likely to ban or seriously restrict abortion very soon, if not immediately, which will have a disproportionate impact on poor, working class and undocumented BIPOC communities.”

6-25-22 how parade crash insanity plea will work

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A man accused of driving his SUV through a Christmas parade in suburban Milwaukee has served notice that he’ll try to convince a jury that he was mentally ill during the incident and shouldn’t go to prison. Prosecutors say Darrell Brooks Jr. drove into the parade in Waukesha on Nov. 21, killing six people. On Monday he entered a plea of not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect to more than 80 charges. He’ll undergo a mental evaluation and then go through a two-part trial. A jury will determine whether he is guilty of the crimes and, if so, determine whether he knew his behavior was illegal. That could be a tough sell for a Waukesha County jury.
