The 'war on women' didn't stop when South Africa locked down over Covid-19
Khayelitsha, South Africa (CNN) The shack sits just down a narrow dirt alleyway, visible from a main road in Khayelitsha, near Cape Town. This is where the suspected killer is alleged to have hidden the body of his girlfriend, packed in between a corrugated iron siding and a concrete wall, just feet away from where he lived.
Prosecutors say he put 36-year-old Sibongiseni Gabada's corpse in a bag and covered it with garbage.
Gabada was missing for two weeks before her body was found. Every day people would walk past, until finally the smell of decomposing remains became stronger than the stench of the trash piled on top.
"When the people asked what is going on there. He said, 'No, it is rubbish, I am going to throw it away.' That is the kind of person he was -- an animal," says Gabada's grandmother, Mavis Gabada.
She gingerly moves forward to stare at the spot, sobbing. "Why was my granddaughter killed like a dog?" she asks.

Staffers at the Santa Monica fast food restaurant retaliated after Angela Martinez Gómez died after being reportedly made to work a week even while displaying symptoms. Picketers, as well as the complaint, claimed that the company did not provide staff with protective gear.
One manager at the branch at 1919 Pico Boulevard allegedly blamed the death of Gómez, 42, of Oaxaca, Mexico, on hormone injections, KTLA5 reported.
Managers made Gómez carry on working for a week even while she spluttered, took frequent bathroom breaks and was visibly ill, the complaint said, before leaving her June 26 shift early.

New audio brings detail to conflicting accounts of Breonna Taylor's killing
Newly-released audio from the internal investigation into Breonna Taylor's death illustrates conflicting accounts of whether police identified themselves before ultimately breaking down Taylor's door in an incident which led to her death.
The audio, first reported by NBC News and obtained by CNN, includes the Louisville Metro Police Department's interview with Taylor's boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, on the night of the shooting. It's unclear if Walker had an attorney present during the interview.
Taylor, a 26-year-old EMT, was shot eight times after police broke down the door to her apartment while executing a nighttime warrant in a narcotics investigation on March 13.
Walker, who was audibly upset, described multiple knocks and both he and Taylor shouting "who is it" to no response. He said as the couple approached the door, it came "off the hinges" and he fired a shot. When a "lot of shots" were fired, the two dropped to the floor, Walked said, and his gun fell. He "was scared to death," he said.

“White Girl Moans Black Lives Matter”
Outwardly, Pornhub has joined large companies such as Amazon, Twitter, and Nike in the corporate rush to put out public statements that condemn racism. @Pornhub, the site’s popular Twitter account run by Aria Nathaniel, wrote that “Pornhub stands in solidarity against social injustice,” and encouraged people to give to organizations such as the Bail Project and the NAACP. The site also promised to donate $100,000.
Around the same time, Pornhub saw the rise of a new subgenre: Black Lives Matter porn. One such video is called “White Girl Moans Black Lives Matter While Getting Fucked #BLM.” Another is “Black Anal Matters.” There is also a subcategory called BLM Protest that mainly shows Black men penetrating white women during a supposed Black Lives Matter protest. Some of these women have “BLM” written on their backs, while others are in jail cells being penetrated by Black porn performers dressed as police officers. In a classic marriage of racist themes, one video purports to show a “black lives matter thug choking out a white cop daughter.”

Man kicked out of sick parents’ house after partying on Fire Island amid COVID-19
Giancarlo Albanese, the unapologetic man who flocked to Fire Island Pines last weekend — and posted a photo of a large, maskless all-male rave he attended with the caption “Fuck your mask … Fuck your vaccine” — has reportedly been booted from his parents’ house over his failure to keep it socially distant.
Queerty reports that a man who claims to be Albanese’s brother responded to that Instagram upload, which itself drew a number of inflammatory comments from Instagram users, telling him to scram.
“Find a new home because you’re not welcome at the one you currently live at,” he wrote. “Complete disrespect for [Mom] and Dad’s lives, both who are very weak. Mom has Chemo on Friday and you’re out doing this shit? Go live off on your own and not under your [parents’] roof and you can do whatever you want.”
In a nearly 14-minute video rant posted Wednesday to his Instagram profile, Albanese — an admitted conspiracy theorist — wouldn’t apologize for his actions. The clip makes no mention of his eviction, but he says he has “nothing to be sorry about,” and the same goes for the “hundreds of thousands, if not millions” of people who went out to celebrate July 4 last week.
“The world has been consumed by mass hysteria and paranoia on an unprecedented scale right now,” he says, adding that he refuses to fall for it. “We’re not going to fall for the lab-made virus, we’re not going to fall for the mass-media marketing campaign that’s been going on because it’s all bullshit, every single ounce of it.”

An 8-year-old was fatally shot in Atlanta near Wendy's restaurant where Rayshard Brooks was killed, police say
Gunfire broke out on Fourth of July weekend in Atlanta, injuring over 20 people and killing three, including an 8-year-old girl, police said.
An investigation is underway after the 8-year-old was fatally shot Saturday night across the street from the Wendy's restaurant where a former police officer killed Rayshard Brooks, officials said.
Secoriea Turner was riding in a car with her mother and an adult friend on I-75/85 when they exited onto University Avenue, police spokesman Sergeant John Chafee told USA TODAY. As the driver tried to enter a parking lot at 1238 Pryor Road, a group of armed individuals blocked the entrance, Chafee said.

41 shot Saturday night in NYC with at least 4 dead in citywide explosion of gun violence
New York City turned into the Wild West as a series of shootings claiming four lives and injuring 37 others erupted amid Fourth of July celebrations.
The shocking wave of violence came as the city was reeling from ongoing anti-police brutality protests, weeks of lockdown orders prompted by the coronavirus outbreak and soaring summer temperatures. Adding to the chaotic atmosphere, illegal fireworks exploded in all five boroughs throughout the night.
In the first fatal shooting of the night, Jose Cepeda, a young father, was blasted in the chest a little after midnight Sunday in East New York, Brooklyn.
Cepeda, 20, and a friend had a “little disagreement” in front of the victim’s home on Atkins Ave. near Pitkin Ave. that turned deadly, neighbor Natasha Ramsay told the Daily News.
“The first one shot got him dead,” Ramsay, 42, said. “It’s so sad.”
Medics rushed Cepeda to Brookdale University Hospital but he couldn’t be saved.
That was just the first in a series of horrifying incidents that cop unions blamed on Mayor de Blasio and Council Speaker Corey Johnson, who last week passed an annual budget that shifted about $1 billion away from the NYPD, a move aimed at meeting activists’ demands for police reform.
