If so, these threats might simply end upon Wednesday’s inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden, who has called for unity and decency.

This threat was present before the Trump administration began and will not disappear with Biden in the White House.

Federal investigative agencies have long known, yet refused to address, the infiltration of white supremacists in law enforcement agencies.

Just last summer, law enforcement officers told militia members, “We appreciate you,” before Kyle Rittenhouse killed two protesters in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Arguably, Marshall's introduction to law came in high school when, as a punishment for a prank he had pulled, the school's principal made him read the U.S. Constitution.

Thurgood Marshall died in 1993, leaving behind a legacy that earned him the nickname "Mr. Civil Rights."

Before his funeral, his flag-draped casket was laid in state in the Great Hall of the Supreme Court. »

But what if you could work in a more comfortable bed-like position when you're well enough to be in the office?

That's the premise of the Signature Altwork Station, a painstakingly-designed, highly-adjustable steel-frame desk made by a company in Sonoma, California that retails for $7,650.
