LA County Sheriff’s beating protestor in West Hollywood

*Thanks to a videographer who goes by the handle of @mrcheckpoint_ on Instagram, we’re able to see how an anti-police protestor was literally hammered with a police shield … at the hands of an L.A. County Sheriff’s deputy. And it happened repeatedly. This is straight up police brutality on display.

The video shows the deputy forcefully striking the detained protester repeatedly in the legs and ankles.

TMZ is reporting that the Sheriff’s office says there were several acts of vandalism during the protest. Deputies declared the protest an unlawful assembly and ordered everyone to leave.

It’s unclear what happened to the protester who was struck with the shield, but 6 people were arrested.

The demonstrators were protesting the outcome of the Grand Jury hearing in the Breonna Taylor case.

*Singer-songwriter Mariah Carey seemingly has it all. But in a new interview with CBS SUNDAY MORNING anchor Jane Pauley, Carey says it wasn’t always that way and opens up about her childhood struggles, her marriage to Tommy Mottola, her new memoir and her fans.

The interview will be broadcast Sunday, Sept. 27 (9:00 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Throughout the extreme challenges she faced, Carey says she was always focused on music and success.

“I always knew that I would do this, and it was just a matter of when it was going to happen,” Carey tells Pauley. “Because I came from, you know, a broken and dysfunctional family and without money or things that most people had.”

Carey, the youngest member of an interracial family, was 3 when her parents divorced. She lived with her mother, a trained opera singer, though they lived in near poverty. She tells Pauley she felt like an outsider, which she dealt with in her songs.

“Because when someone is visually ambiguous like myself, there’s a certain, there’s a lot of different misconceptions that come with that,” Carey says.

Carey also talks with Pauley about how her classmates treated her, including a sleepover with a clique of middle school girls that turned ugly.

“I was so excited and innocently thinking this is going to be great. And then, you know, I just felt utterly betrayed because they cornered me, in order to – just completely derail me and use words we don’t say,” Carey recalls.

Carey tells Pauley she deals with a lot of issues in her book The Meaning of Mariah Carey that she’s never talked about before, even with her closest friends.

Of her 1993 marriage to Sony Music CEO Tommy Mottola, Carey says she “did not have any power in that relationship.”

She was 23 and he was 44 when they married. They divorced five years later.

“I was a kid in his world, and I just kept making money for the company,” Carey says. “Just kept going in and making records and making records and writing songs and, you know, feeding the machine. And I was living a dream, but it was also a nightmare.”

In a wide-ranging interview, Carey also talks about songwriting, her movie “Glitter,” her personal 9/11 story, and that connection she has with her fans.

“There’s no way to describe the relationship that I have with my fans,” Carey says of the Lambs (as they’re called). “And no, it is not lip service. It is genuine gratitude for them, and for them validating my existence.”

CBS SUNDAY MORNING is broadcast Sundays (9:00-10:30 AM, ET) on the CBS Television Network. Rand Morrison is the executive producer.

Bottom Line: Anita Hill Will Support Joe Biden for President

Joe Biden – Anita Hill

*Anita Hill made world news in 1991, when she accused then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment.

In front of live Senate Judiciary Committee hearings, chaired by then-Senator Joe Biden, Hill spoke in intricate details of the sexual harassment by Thomas, as a crush of international television outlets captured her every word and facial expression.  Thomas, in October of 1991, was ultimately confirmed as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.

Through the years, Biden has been criticized for allowing Hill to be subjected to the line of questioning regarding her interaction with Thomas.

When Biden launched his Presidential bid months ago, he personally called Hill to apologize.  By all accounts, Hill did not accept Biden’s apology, saying:

“I cannot be satisfied by simply saying I’m sorry for what happened to you,” Hill said.  “I will be satisfied when I know there is real change and real accountability and real purpose.”

Yet, in CNN’s upcoming documentary, Fight for the White House:  Joe Biden’s Long Journey, Hill, 64, announced she will support Biden for President.

“Notwithstanding all of his limitations in the past, and the mistakes that he made in the past, notwithstanding those – at this point, between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, I think Joe Biden is the person who should be elected in November,” said Hill.

Hill added that she would consider working with Biden if he’s elected in November.  She pointed to working with him on issues of sexual harassment, gender violence, and gender discrimination.

“My commitment is to finding solutions, and I am more than willing to work with him,” said Hill, who is now a lawyer and activist.  “I always said, I think I can be more effective as an outsider.  And now, I’m willing to evolve myself, to work for change inside.”
