At this time of uncertainty, worry, and anxiety, it is expected that we will see people focusing on doing what they need to do in order to provide for themselves and their families. Many people are running out to buy up all the sanitation products, food, and other necessities.
For many, this alone is a difficult endeavor. Living paycheck to paycheck with little or no room for extra, unexpected expensive makes it very difficult to spend the extra lump sum needed to prep for a less than ideal chain of events.
Even those who can afford to stock up on things, and are doing fine this week, may not have paychecks coming in the near future due to having to take off work. One group expected to feel such hit are those who work in stadiums on NBA game days.
Due to the NBA suspending the rest of its season, individaual teams no longer have the need for stadium workers. No need for workers equals no pay for workers.
Fortunately, for those who were scheduled to work in the Americna Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, the lack of work during this viral outbreak will not result in lack of pay.
Omar Villafranca reported via Twitter that he has received some generous news form Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.
Talked to Dallas Mavs owner [Mark Cuban] this afternoon. Despite suspended NBA season, [Cuban] plans to pay Mavs game day arena workers who make games possible. When asked if it’s coming from his own pocket, he said ‘Yes. I’m going to be OK.’

In the midst of the chaos and worry due to the coronavirus scare, as well as the over politicization of the related events, it’s great to see a business owner step up and help those who have contributed to his brand.
This charitable contribution may be a drop in the bucket for a wealthy man like Cuban, but it definitely helps to show his appreciation to those workers and will likely go a long way for those wondering how they were going to replace their much needed income.
NO MURDER CHARGES: Fired Detective Brett Hankinson Receives Indictment for Wanton Endangerment, No Officers are Charged for the Death of Breonna Taylor
On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.
Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.
Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.
The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.
Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order.
Given the indictment doesn’t match the BLM demands of murder charges for all officers involved, such precautionary measures are necessary to quell potential unrest coming from the Left. Since May, radical leftists have taken advantage of controversial police actions to tear up property and cause mayhem across the country. An incident like Taylor’s death is most assuredly being politicized by the Left and will likely fuel further disturbances across the nation.
Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
