Video showing officer punching 14-year-old boy under the scanner, the investigation started.
A police officer from Northern California is under investigation after a video has surfaced in which he was captured punching a 14-year-old black boy. He had pinned the boy to the ground. The video was posted by the family and friends of the boy on Twitter. It showed an officer from Rancho Cordova that is a city in the east of Sacramento holding him in the dirt at the point with his hand on his neck and striking him several times in the chest. The boy was cited for possession of a tobacco product, according to the police, and released to his parents. A person who identified themselves on Twitter as the boy’s sister said it was a Swisher Sweet, a type of cigar.
The rural-urban is divided into California over COVID-19 infection rates.
Governor Gavin Newsom is signaling every now, and then that economy in California will begin to reopen soon but slowly. He compared it to sliding a dimmer switch incrementally on. He said that the state is now a single geography. The assault COVID-19 had on the state has hit different parts at different levels.
A Sacramento Bee review of the infection along with the death rates in 58 counties of California, showed that there is a vast difference in the depth of the crisis, especially between lightly-hit rural and harder-hit urban spots. Notably, the infection and death rates in the state as a whole, as measured against the state population, show that California, as of this week, has done much better than the nation.
California scaled up 1st-In-US Electric Truck Sale Proposal.
The regulators of California strengthened a proposed first-in-the-nation rule that would force automakers to sell more electric delivery vans and work trucks. The state has the country’s worst air quality. The updated government proposed by the California Air Resources Board has asked the automakers to sell a certain percentage of zero-emission trucks per year.
By 2035, the board estimates at least 20% of these trucks on the road would be electric. Paul Cort, an attorney for Earthjustice’s Right to the Zero campaign, said in his statement that this would be transformative. At some point in the future, these makers are going to realize that it does not make sense to make zero-emission trucks and combustion trucks to serve the same market.
