Thinking about how early in the siege at the barricade, before the troops arrive, a man called Le Cabuc shoots a bystander. Enjolras executes him on the spot to prevent the violence from spreading. He later turns out to have been an undercover police agent.

Winderbourne Mansion “is currently abandoned and has no plans of restoration. The site is a photographer’s dream.

Yeah, let’s just shut off the water to the firefighters while the house is still burning. “What a US exit from the WHO means for COVID-19 and global health” Trump doesn’t give a shit how many people die as long as he gets to blame someone else for it.
