As riots broke out across the country after the death of George Floyd, a black man who was killed in police custody in Minneapolis, a number of them grew extremely violent and deadly over the weekend.
In Chicago, a city with existing issues of gun violence that hasn’t stopped with the novel coronavirus pandemic, it was the most violent weekend of the year, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. The paper reported that over the weekend in the city 82 people were shot, 19 of them fatally.
"In addition to our 9pm-6am curfew that will remain in place until further notice, Governor Pritzker—at my request—has ordered a small contingent of the National Guard to maintain a limited presence and support our police in order to ensure we don’t have a repeat of last night."

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Saturday issued a curfew notice to residents between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. “until further notice.”
Additionally, a number of main streets and public transportation systems were shut down. City officials condemned those creating violence and vandalizing the city, during Saturday’s press conference.
On Sunday, however, more than half of the weekend’s victims were shot, the report noted.

New Hire at the Office Of Nuclear Energy at DOE Promotes ‘Sexual Fetishes and Kinks’
Last month the Biden administration appointed Sam Brinton to serve as deputy assistant secretary of spent fuel and waste disposition in the Office of Nuclear Energy at the Department of Energy. Brinton is an MIT-trained engineer whose sexual fetishes include tying up his partner while he eats dinner and watches Star Trek, reports The Washington Examiner.
Prior to become high up the in the Office of Nuclear Energy, Brinton worked at the gay and transgender suicide prevention organization the Trevor Project. Even before that, Brinton has “a history of promoting sexual fetishes and kinks related to animal role-playing” adds the Examiner.
Libs of Tik Tok posted a photo of Brinton, wearing a black dress and heels, standing over three men with sexual fetish leather masks on the ground. The photo of the administration’s new hire quickly went viral.
“This is Sam Brinton – a drag queen and LGBTQ + activist who was just hired to a top level position at the DOE” the tweet read.

The student newspaper at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute from 2017 explains how Brinton held a discussion on kinks and sex education at the campus. “Throughout the entire talk, Brinton was open about his experiences, the kinks he partakes in, and the nature of his relationships” the article stated.
It continued, “he left us with countless anecdotes, like how he enjoys tying up his significant other like a table, and eating his dinner on him while he watches Star Trek.”
Brinton holds a master’s degree in nuclear engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and also previously advised former President Donald Trump on nuclear waste matters. The Department of Energy did not respond to a request for comment, reports the Examiner.
Senior analyst for Strategy, Center for Security Policy, J Michael Waller tweeted the Examiner’s article with a photo of Brinton wearing a dress and makeup on what appears to be some sort of red carpet event.
