Closing Arguments are going on today in the trial of Derek Chauvin, the cop who killed George Floyd by kneeling on his neck for over 9 minutes last year. Since the trial began on March 29, at least 64 people have died at the hands of law enforcement nationwide. And since we were shocked back into reality on March 16, when eight people were killed at three Atlanta-area spas, the US has had at least 50 mass shootings. Perhaps by showtime, [...]

The trial of the former cop who killed George Floyd enters its third week. And yesterday in Brooklyn Center, MN - about 10 miles away- a cop shot and killed another unarmed young Black man for no reason. And we learned about another cop abusing a motorist, this one in Virginia. And just before we hit the air, we learned about another school shooting in Knoxville, [...]
Download here or click below to play, (or watch the video at the bottom of the page!) What a shitty day in America. For the second time in less than a week, a sick person with a gun he shouldn't have had access to took a whole bunch of innocent lives. I said last week that the pandemic gave us a respite of sorts from mass shootings. If this is what a return to normalcy brings, I say we're better off hiding at home from the virus...and the bullets. Yesterday it was the formerly idyllic town of Boulder [...]
After an update on the day's news, Will Bunch of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News returns to the Nicole Sandler Show to talk about America's mass shooting problem and the anniversary of election day 2016.
Nicole Sandler continues her look back at 2015, covering a lot of ground today: Cliff Schecter joins in to talk guns, mass shootings and the Tamir Rice travesty; Amy Simon brings the state of women in 2015; Julianna Forlano helps shine a light on the absurd news of the year (and there's plenty of that!)
Nicole recaps America's latest mass shooting, yesterday in San Bernardino, CA, where 14 people were killed and 17 others injured. Vice News' Jason Leopold was on the scene, and checks in with us this morning. Harvey J. Kaye returns to talk about the right wing politics of hate and fear. And Howie Klein will let us know which politicians are bought and paid for by the NRA, and more.
Nicole was out today, so we heard her show from Dec 17, 2012 as she guest hosted the Randi Rhodes Show, dealing with the Newtown Sandy Hook Elementary massacre that happened the previous Friday. Sadly, nothing has changed in the almost three years since.
WARNING: TRAVEL IN THE US AT YOUR OWN RISK This graphic shows the Mass Shooting/Killing incidents since President Barack Obama took office in January 2009. The shooting at the Navy Yard in Washington, D.C., on Monday marks the 20th time since Barack Obama took office that there has been a mass killing incident. Using data compiled by Mother Jones magazine, we created an animated map to show, month-by-month, what that toll looks like. According to that data, 174 people have lost their lives since January 2009 in such incidents. The incidents must meet several criteria: four or more killed, it must have been [...]
