Published on 23 Apr 2014 by breakingtheset

EPISODE BREAKDOWN: On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin remarks on the US Supreme Court's decision to uphold Michigan's ban on Affirmative Action, a policy that has traditionally evened the playing field for minorities when it comes to college and employment. Abby then speaks with journalist and producer, Tabetha Wallace, discussing the dire state of US infrastructure and her upcoming crowd-funded documentary that will shed light on America's crumbling roads, bridges and public transit systems. Abby then calls out an NYPD Twitter campaign that massively backfired when twitter users got police brutality pictures trending instead of the nice police photos the department was hoping for. BTS wraps up the show with US Navy Lieutenant Commander and JAG Attorney, Kevin Bogucki, discussing allegations of a conflict of interest with an ongoing FBI investigation that is thwarting progress in the 9/11 tribunals, a process that has already been delayed for over a decade.

Leader of Ukraine's Right Sector ultra-right nationalist movement Dmitry Yarosh, who is wanted in Russia for terrorist crimes in Chechnya in 1994-95, has announced plans to create a special battalion, "Donbass", manned by activists from the Donetsk region, Ukrainian media report.

Yarosh, who is running for the Ukrainian presidency in the May 25 polls, told reporters on Wednesday that Rights Sector activists and trained fighters were ready to assist the Ukrainian law enforces in cracking down on federalization supporters.

"We coordinate all of our moves with the leadership of the SNBO [National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine], the Interior Ministry and the SBU [Ukrainian Security Service]. At present, there are no grounds to fear that Right Sector activists' participation in the special operation conducted by the Interior Ministry and the SBU in the east might provoke a wave of clashes with Donbass residents," Yarosh said.
