"The data, taken from the Hennepin County Jail’s roster, shows that nearly all of the people arrested in likely connection to the riots live in Minneapolis or the metro area." https://t.co/OE1B5or9GF

This is the officer. He threw my phone before throwing me. As you can see I was already backing up. All I asked was why. https://t.co/8mct5GrztV

NYPD commandeered a city bus for prisoner transport. The driver steps off the bus and refuses to drive it. Crowd cheering. #Brooklyn #BarclaysCenter #BlackLivesMatter #GeorgeFloyd https://t.co/4F9IZ3sfDI

BREAKING: The New York City police department's internal affair bureau has recommended misconduct charges against an officer who beat a bystander to an arrest on May 2 and kneeled on his back and neck– a move similar to the one used on George Floyd. Two more also face charges.

Really good time to read the these two brilliant essays on the meaning of riots. First, @aintacrow on who is considered a rioter and who is considered a protester. https://t.co/j3bsbOn5Gw https://t.co/4RjzXcH1mo

THREAD: I’ve been tweeting all morning and I need to step away but it’s been so hard to capture in words what I’m feeling. Gonna try to channel my energy into what I can do as a legislator and black man in this country. (1/15)

Trying something new this week — a detail-by-detail voyage through one painting. On Eakins's "Gross Clinic," on medicine as art, and on the unexpected comforts of realism. (Huge thanks to producers extraordinaires @gianordoli and Alicia Desantis.) https://t.co/Mu9n3BqpKi

Ever notice how every coronavirus commercial looks the same? Or that you don’t know what’s being advertised until the very end? @amandahess and I made a video that looks at post-Covid advertisements. @nytimes @nytvideo https://t.co/7ZKZUDtQ0y
