Kevin Durant on Colin Kaepernick: “I’m behind anyone who stands up for what they believe in”

A few days ago Stephen Curry came out and backed Colin Kaepernick and his right to protest. Curry didn’t endorse Kaepernick’s move, but he also didn’t get sucked into the off-topic issue of how one should respect the flag and said that the 49er quarterback’s message about the treatment of minorities in the United States […]

Reported All-Star draft order, from Kevin Durant (No. 1) to Klay Thompson (No. 9)

After LeBron picked first among the starters, Curry made the first selection among reserves. Predictably, he chose one of two Warriors, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

Detained Portland demonstrators are required to stay away from future protests to get out of jail

After reviewing federal cases between July 23 and July 27, CNN found that at least nine out of 21 defendants arrested for either failing to obey a lawful order or assaulting a federal officer were released on the condition they “not attend any other protests, rallies, assemblies or public gatherings in the state of Oregon,” […]

Federales usan gas lacrimógeno con manifestantes en Portland

Oregon solicitaba una orden de alejamiento en nombre de sus residentes no por las lesiones que ya se habían cometido, sino para evitar las que pudiesen ocurrir en un futuro a manos de los agentes federales. Esta combinación hace que el estándar para conceder el reclamo sea muy escaso, y el estado no demostró tener […]
