The Republican-led Senate finance committee on Wednesday declined to vote a bill out of committee that would allow the attorney general to investigate cases in which an unarmed civilian is killed during an interaction with police.

The legislation, which was sponsored by Senate minority leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, would create an office of special investigation within the office of the attorney general to investigate and, when appropriate, prosecute local police officers. It was voted down 20-16.

The legislation was introduced following the death of Eric Garner, a black Staten Island resident whose death in police custody was captured on video and led to a national outcry and calls for police reform.

The Republican head of the finance committee, John DeFrancisco, reacted skeptically to the idea that replacing district attorneys with the A.G. would make cases less political.

—  New York just rejected a bill that would have allowed the Attorney General to investigate police killings of unarmed civilians.

Media writers and journalists on Twitter were abuzz this morning with the rumor that “TLDR,” a spinoff of the WNYC radio show “On the Media,” had been cancelled, but it turns out the technology and culture podcast’s lifespan is longer than fans we…

I know that I’m a month late to this but it’s still disappointing. I think that I will start posting links to my favorite old episodes. The guys behind TLDR did a great job. It saddens me that people couldn’t keep it going after Vogt and Goldman moved to Reply All.

In his first speech since a judge rebuked him for trying former Assembly speaker Sheldon Silver in the press, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara argued that without “public awareness,” there can be no reform.

“Without public awareness, there is no focus,” said Bharara. “Without public awareness, there is no resolve. Without public awareness, things tend to never change.”

Going after the low hanging fruit of scummy pols. Prosecute now, become the go to defender of them when he leaves office.

Of course, he’ll probably do far better than that for refusing to bring Wall Street prosecutions to all intents and purposes.
