A Curious Death

"Shawn Lucas, an activist who recently served the Democratic National Committee (DNC) with a lawsuit, was found dead due to unknown causes. His girlfriend found him lying on the bathroom floor of his house when she returned home on the evening of August 2, 2016."
Nothing is proved by Shawn Lucas' death, but I do think the timing of it at least is noteworthy; so soon after filing a lawsuit against the DNC for their conspiracy against the Bernie Sanders campaign (as revealed by Wikileaks). It is stories like this and their absence from the mainstream news media that makes the quality of amateur investigative journalism so much more important. Perhaps the field could benefit from an open editing, reviewing and publishing platform similar to a wiki.

At any rate, the so-called "professional" media can no longer be trusted to do much of anything beyond reprinting a few government press releases and writing politically correct op-eds.
