United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania The FBI was able to track down a Philadelphia woman accused of setting fire to a police vehicle through Instagram, Etsy, and LinkedIn, it said in charging documents earlier reported by the Philadelphia Inquirer. After viewing footage of the woman from a television helicopter, agents said they zoomed in on photos and videos of the protest posted on Instagram and Vimeo to track down the woman. They said they traced the T-shirt she had worn to a specific shop on Etsy. Civil rights advocates have long been worried about the use of social media to identify and track activists, and the court filings raise new concerns over police canvassing social media to identify and track down protesters from demonstrations that have erupted in the wake of George Floyd's death. The woman's lawyer compared the investigation to COINTELPRO, a secret FBI program aimed at surveilling and infiltrating the civil rights and feminist movements of the 1950s and '60s that was largely found to have violated First and Fourth Amendment rights.

Jonathan Erns/Reuters Janet Yellen co-wrote an op-ed in The New York Times on Monday in which she argued that while the Fed has largely done its job, Congress needs to pass an additional stimulus bill.  Following the op-ed Yellen told NPR that loss in fiscal support may lead to a "complete petering out" of economic growth.  The former Fed chair said that the additional $600-per-week in unemployment was essential to stimulate spending and, consequently, job creation. Unemployed Americans have been without the additional $600 per week in benefits for almost a month after Congress was unable to reach a deal for a new stimulus bill before going into recess. Janet Yellen criticized the Senate's lack of urgency and emphasized the need for additional stimulus in an op-ed in The New York Times titled "The Senate Is on Vacation While Americans Starve," which she co-wrote with Jared Bernstein, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities senior fellow, on Monday.  The economists argued that both monetary policy from the Fed, and fiscal policy from the US government, are necessary to pull America out of the crisis. While the Fed has largely done its job by cutting interest rates, Yellen and Bernstein wrote, more
