In other news, a British judge sentenced WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to 50 weeks in prison for violating the terms of his release on bail in 2012.

Meanwhile, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says U.S military action in Venezuela is on the table.

“The president has been crystal clear and incredibly consistent – military action is possible, if that’s what’s required – that’s what the United States will do,” Pompeo told FOX Business on Wednesday.

Finally, shootings at religious centers have become so common, churches, mosques, and synagogues are buying insurances for shootings.

Premiums for one policy backed by insurer AXA XL costs $1,200 per $1 million of coverage, said Paul Marshall, who heads the active shooter insurance program for the Ohio-based McGowan Companies, which underwrites the coverage.

Recent attacks spurred five synagogues and churches to buy the coverage this week, Marshall said.

The Archdiocese of Indianapolis bought active assailant coverage last year, covering 141 parishes and 75 schools, said Mike Witka, director of risk management.

America: the only country where churches have to buy insurance for mass shootings. Fuck yeah!
