Lightning’s All-Decade Team: Defense

At the start of the decade, the Tampa Bay Lightning’s defense had only one certainty: Victor Hedman. After he was selected second overall at the 2009 draft, the Lightning went all-in on what they believed was a true defensive star in the making. Even with their future star on the ice, Tampa Bay’s defensive corps was relatively weak at the time. Hedman was a raw talent who was being asked to take on NHL ice time throughout the 2009-10 season, which he struggled with at times. Many of his teamm...

Why Netflix's 'Dolemite Is My Name' is dedicated to Eddie Murphy's brother, Charlie

Tennessee Deputy Sued Twice In The Same Day Over A Roadside Anal Search And A Forced Baptism (techdirt)

You've got to be a special kind of law enforcement officer to have two lawsuits filed against you in the same day. Hamilton County Deputy Daniel Wilkey is that kind of special. The Tennessee law enforcement officer managed to violate rights against enough people that two of them retained lawyers. This suggests Deputy Wilkey violates rights on a regular basis, but maybe not egregiously enough to merit a lawsuit in every case. Both cases here are disturbing. And they're disturbing in very differ...
