"Fundraising while black" is now also highly illegal...


Oh, and fuck these people, seriously...

On Monday, Wynne police arrested 46-year-old Jerri Kelly on four counts of aggravated assault, false imprisonment and endangering the welfare of a minor.

However, Kelly doesn’t have mugshot because Cross county Sheriff David West told WMC Action News 5 that she had a “medical issue” at the time of booking. Ironically Kelly is the wife of Cross county Jail Administrator Joe Kelly, one of West’s employees.

Despite the connection and no mugshot—which is standard procedure for anyone booked into jail—West maintains that Jerri Kelly did not get special treatment. Her husband, Joe, also remains on the job.

Greenwald and Snowden were unavailable for comment


Serious question -- Do they even give a shit about these kinds of stories anymore?? Aside from trying to kneecap and discredit the anti-corruption investigations in Brasil, I don't remember the last time the Intercept had a buzzworthy original story on their site...
