A gunman shot two men early Monday morning on Burbank Street in Washington, D.C.. One man died of his wounds at the scene. The other is receiving treatment.

This is the latest of a string of shootings at the nation’s capital. Earlier this month, a drive-by shooter wounded five people and killed a six-year-old girl on a scooter. Then, attendees of a Nationals baseball game the very next day heard gun shots outside the stadium during the sixth inning. That shooting killed three people and officials postponed the game. Next, only a couple days afterward, a gunman shot two men on 14th street. Both survived their wounds, but the sound spurred pandemonium on the street.

After the Monday morning shooting, DC Police tweeted that they are investigating two additional, unrelated shootings that happened the same day. DC Mayor Muriel Bowser tweeted Friday that she has “head the calls from residents in our communities most impacted by gun violence: They want to see a strong, sustained police presence.” Bowser directed the police department to use “any overtime necessary,” but admitted that it’s not a permanent solution.

In response, the DC Police Union praised Bowser for “setting the right tone.” They supported her in discouraging too much police overtime. Instead of burning out their current police force, they “The use of overtime is not an ideal solution and a better solution would be to fully staff their police force,” Bowser said in a statement.

Oregon’s Menstrual Dignity Act has layers of perversion. In July of last year, democratic Governor Kate Brown signed the “Menstrual Dignity Act” which requires schools k-12 to carry and provide free sanitary products to students with instructions on how they are supposed to be used. The installs have begun, according to a video posted be @libsoftiktok.

The Portland school district stated, “starting next year (2022-2022), products will be available in all restrooms (male, female and all-gender) in every PPS building where education occurs.”

Fox News reports that “Menstrual Dignity for Students” tool kits containing instructions and tips for “menstruation-positive” language for families.

Part of the kit reads: “Importantly, [the Menstrual Dignity Act] affirms the right to menstrual dignity for transgender, intersex, nonbinary, and two spirit students by addressing the challenges that some students have managing menstruation while minimizing negative attention that could put them at risk of harm and navigating experiences of gender dysphoria during menstruation.”
