A thing underdiscussed is how riot cops and national guardsmen in protest areas are actively slashing car tires and breaking car windows whenever they have the opportunity. On city streets, in parking lots, etc. What kind of training is that?




I remember Trump really buddying up to the cross burning forces as soon as he became President...I feel like a Roger Stone/Steve Bannon/Stephen Miller Tri Fecta are paying cops and others to do heinous (bleep)

Aww hell no. That dick has a gun pointed at a baby. Daddy needs to take her home and keep her safe but who the hell points a gun at a baby girl like that? Or baby boy, I can't tell.


Actually I read further... The Officer wasn't pointing it directly at the man and the child.. From farther away the officers eyes are looking quite a bit to the mans left

It seems they actually allowed him to stand there for quite awhile

Technically true and acknowledged by the photographer whose tweets I linked, but still...

Cops who fire anything - rubber bullets, tear gas canisters, anything - near or at protestors faces should be charged with attempted manslaughter at the least.

Why were the DC Police so rude and afraid to communicate with the Protestors?

Even I can write something this simple that would have led to nothing but simple respect.. arrgh.
Quote:

"Ma'am, Sir, The President of the United States is going to be walking through this area and the Secret Service and us included need to ensure it is safe for his travel. I am asking for you and all in this area to please move back behind that yellow rope over there we have setup at a safe distance. Please do comply with this order or we will be forced to physically remove you.
As soon as we are done you may return to your previous area. Thank you."



Even though it seems like something their normal ugliness could do...

Someone picked this crew who will now HURT AMERICANS AT WILL and Trump potentially gave them orders to rough them up etc.. All staged and all vicious cruelty that tries to change the Heart of American Identity

My Favorite Dictator

Only leaders in the world who half assed like our President are dictators

Twitter suspends fake antifa account tied to white nationalists
https://www.axios.com/twitter-suspends-fake-antifa-account-tied-to-white-nationalists-b387f109-2bfd-4326-a60f-a4d398a191c3.html


Quote:
Twitter said Monday that it has suspended an account named "ANTIFA_US" which it says was tied to the white nationalist group Identity Evropa. Over the weekend, the account had called for violence and its posts had widely circulated online.

Why it matters: It's the latest example of social media being used to exploit and sharpen the very real divisions in American society. It's also the latest example of Twitter more aggressively rooting out false information on its platform.

"This account violated our platform manipulation and spam policy, specifically the creation of fake accounts," a Twitter representative told Axios. "We took action after the account sent a Tweet inciting violence and broke the Twitter Rules."

Some of these rioters don't care about the movement at all. JR Smith beat the crap out of some kid who bashed in his car window in the suburbs for no reason.

Local news interviewed a looter in custody Sunday. He was left behind by his friends when the cops caught them looting the new balance store in Santa Monica. He said it was all about getting money.

40+ million unemployed.

Imagine if all these soldiers deployed to major cities were here doing testing and contact tracing.

If you want to know why they aren't. The short answer is Mitch.

People like him are the reason I paraphrased a line from James Baldwin's Another Country. I'd like to get all these kind of people in one corner of the world, turn into a big black fist and smash them.

The DC cops had been rounding up protestors near Bloomingdale and a good Samaritan opened their doors to about 100 stray protestors earlier tonight. The cops surrounded the place and are picking off anyone who leaves one by one so folks inside are waiting out the curfew/shift change until morning.

JFC, what ludicrously terrible federal and local institutions this country has.

Update: the homeowner, Rahul, has ordered pizza for everyone while the cops have tried to gain entry by 1) falsely saying they received a 911 call, and 2) by sending a plainclothes pig stripped of his armor as a "protestor" in need of help (who was turned away).

This is pathetic and perverse from DC cops.

Update: Rahul interview: https://twitter.com/AdriannaHopkins/status/1267785458349531136

Basic heroism. Also, watch that guy get harassed by cops for years.

Yep, as I said, we have become those countries that we used to look down on for authoritarian atrocities. We're one of those countries now, at least in many respects.

Also worth noting, they are violating training and policy by firing the projectiles at people. They are trained to fire the "rubber" (they are extremely hard) bullets at the ground in front of people so they bounce into them so that the velocity of the bullet is reduced. Those "non-lethal" weapons can actually be quite lethal if fired directly at someone from close range.

Boarded up my businesses sunday morning after getting ransacked. Me and a buddy slept in one location sunday/monday nights and two of my cousins slept in the other one that got looted. We each had shotguns. Was honestly hoping they'd return. I was ready to pile up bodies but they moved on to other areas. LAPD stopped by a couple times to check on us. I love those guys and feel so bad for what's happening to them. They don't deserve this and neither does my family or any other business. These bottom-feeding thugs will burn in hell for all eternity. I wish they'd just start firing on looters.

Craig Gore Fired As Producer Of New ‘SVU’ Spinoff Over Controversial Comments Amid George Floyd Protests

This week, Gore posted a photo of himself brandishing a rifle in front of his home with a caption, “curfew”, after threatening to “light motherf***ers up who try to f*** w/my property” in reference to looting nearby.

I understand your anger but think if you took a life it would come back to haunt you.

Load your shotgun with rock salt and don't choke it. Full spread it so it will hit and sting the hell out of a whole bunch of looters. The sound of jacking a shotgun is enough to deter looters. The sound of a discharge will send them scurrying.

BTW, I just noticed my post right after this one. Pleaser know that was purely coincidental and was in no way meant as a commentary on your expression of displeasure.

I feel badly about what has happened to small business owners such as yourself. You frustrations and anger are understood.

.

Especially when they are fired at faces/eyes. I have seen a few pictures of people hit it face, eyes with rubber bullets recently and pretty devastating damage.
