Tesla vehicles and its “autopilot” navigation system have been involved in a number of car crashes in recent years, now one family is suing the company after a Tesla Model 3 vehicle was involved in another fatal car crash just four miles from Tesla’s main factory in California.
The New York Times reports the family of Benjamin Maldonado and his teenage son Jovani are suing Elon Musk’s electric vehicle maker Tesla after their Ford Explorer pickup was hit by a Tesla Model 3 in autopilot mode, killing the 15-year-old.
The New York Times writes:

Benjamin Maldonado and his teenage son were driving back from a soccer tournament on a California freeway in August 2019 when a truck in front of them slowed. Mr. Maldonado flicked his turn signal and moved right. Within seconds, his Ford Explorer pickup was hit by a Tesla Model 3 that was traveling about 60 miles per hour on Autopilot.
A six-second video captured by the Tesla and data it recorded show that neither Autopilot — Tesla’s much-vaunted system that can steer, brake and accelerate a car on its own — nor the driver slowed the vehicle until a fraction of a second before the crash. Fifteen-year-old Jovani, who had been in the front passenger seat and not wearing his seatbelt, was thrown from the Ford and died, according to a police report.
The accident, which took place four miles from Tesla’s main car factory, is now the subject of a lawsuit against the company. It is one of a growing number of crashes involving Autopilot that have fueled concerns about the technology’s shortcomings, and could call into question the development of similar systems used by rival carmakers. And as cars take on more tasks previously done by humans, the development of these systems could have major ramifications — not just for the drivers of those cars but for other motorists, pedestrians and cyclists.

At least three Tesla drivers have died since 2016 in crashes in which the vehicles’ Autopilot system was engaged and failed to detect obstacles in the road. In two different instances, the system failed to brake for tractor-trailers crossing highways, in the third it failed to recognize a concrete barrier.
In June, the federal traffic safety agency released a list showing that at least 10 people have been killed in eight accidents involving Autopilot since 2016, not including the crash that killed Jovani Maldonado.

Twitter ‘Mistakenly’ Censors News Site for Report on 13-Year-Old Dying Days After COVID Vaccine

Twitter locked the account of the National File, a national populist news website, for reporting on a tweet from Tami Burages, a woman who says her 13-year old nephew died three days after receiving a second dose of Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine. Twitter later said the account had been locked in error and reinstated it.
According to a Twitter spokesman, the platform took enforcement action on the National File’s account in error. That action has been reversed and the account has been reinstated.

The National File’s report was about Twitter user Tami Burages, who said her teenage nephew had died shortly after receiving a second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
“Our family is devastated,” said Burages “I struggled with putting this out on twitter. I am pro-vaccine. We vaccinated my own 14-year-old son as soon as it was available. I know it is *mostly safe*. But Jacob is dead now.”

Our family is devastated.
I struggled with putting this out on twitter. I am pro-vaccine. We vaccinated my own 14-year-old son as soon as it was available.
I know it is *mostly safe*.
But Jacob is dead now.
— Tami Burages (@tburages) June 20, 2021

“I do believe that the vaccine is saving millions of lives,” continued Burages subsequent tweets. “But should any innocent child be a sacrificial lamb in this endeavor? There are moral, ethical and health questions that need to be answered. If Jacob had not received the 2nd shot, we believe he would be alive today.”

Saying parents should be “warned of the risk,” Burages called on the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to investigate.
Tom Pappert, editor-in-chief of the National File, condemned Twitter for censoring his website’s reporting.
“Twitter’s censorship here is as repugnant as it is ridiculous,” said Pappert. “National File does not publish medical misinformation. We published a report containing direct quotes from a woman who – using Twitter – expressed concern about the death of her 13-year-old nephew, Jacob Clynick, which occurred after he received the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.”
“It appears Twitter is attempting to censor news outlets for the crime of reporting on the concerns of a recently bereaved family member,” Pappert said.
“Our hearts and prayers are with Ms. Burages and her family during this difficult time. It is very unfortunate that Twitter would attempt to prevent this family from sharing its truth and its concerns about the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine only days after Jacob’s untimely and heartbreaking death.”

Trump: Twitter, Facebook ‘a Disgrace’ — ‘They Have to Be Stopped’

Published

In a Monday phone interview with Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Company,” former President Donald Trump blasted social media giants Twitter and Facebook.
Trump said it is a “disgrace” that Twitter and Facebook have banned him and censored other conservatives on their platforms. He emphasized that the companies “have got to be stopped.”

[Relevant portion beginning around the 17:45 mark of the interview]

“Censorship. Facebook has banned you for two years. Twitter has banned you forever. How do you get the word out? Do you have a plan?” host Stuart Varney asked.
“Well, I have been getting it out. I do news releases or press releases, and … I think I’ve been getting it out very well, but they are really — these are bad people, these are dangerous people. … It’s got to be stopped because our country is in danger. You know, Zuckerberg would come to the White House to have dinner with me, couldn’t have been nicer. ‘Sir, you’re number one, congratulations, you’re number one on Facebook,’ all of this crap. He would bring his wife. It’s amazing, actually, when you think about it. But no, they have to be stopped, and they will be stopped eventually they are going to be stopped.”
“Why do you think they’re doing this?” Varney followed up. “There is, I mean, a whole group of people who just will not allow you to get out.”
“Because my voice is very strong,” Trump replied. “My voice is very powerful. I got 75 million votes, which is more than any sitting president ever got. I won the election, but they cheated, and by the way, Facebook and Zuckerberg with a $500 million worth of phony lockboxes that he put on, some of them had 96% Biden votes in them, 96%. They were like just dumping ballots. It was a phony deal, and let’s see how that all turns out, but there’s a lot of litigation coming, and what they did is a disgrace. And I think, you know, they allow dictators that say ‘death to America.’ That’s OK. ‘Death to Israel.’ That’s OK, but with me, they take me off because they are radical-left crazy people, and they’re destroying our country, and they don’t want to hear a sane voice. That’s why they — and it’s a voice that has — and you know, I was one of the top, by far, on Twitter and top on — and Zuckerberg said top on Facebook, and you know, on Instagram, too.”
“They’re a disgrace to our country. They don’t have free speech. We don’t have free speech anymore. And who are they to tell us what ideology we should be talking about, what politics we should be talking about? They’re a disgrace to our country,” he added.
