LA's getting in on it too. Getting all warmed up to party like it's '92 I hope!

You know that time when they killed 60 people in less than a week, injured a couple thousand, did a billion dollars of damage and accomplished absolutely nothing except all the black people eventually just targeting a different minority instead of the police they were supposed to be mad at.

But that was 30 years ago. Times have changed...now they can spread the plague on top of it! ^_^

Glad Axiom is finally getting all her wishes coming true anyway. Hope it's worth it.

Speaking of fags, the French spent most of last year rioting, and they were notably less trashy and fat while they did it so more sympathetic by default.

Also Hong Kong is rioting again for unrelated reasons, if anyone cares about that.

Oh and while everything was being distracted by a bunch of violent frothing dipshits, actual history was being made by the first manned launch from an America shuttle in almost a decade and the first launch of a manned shuttle by a private company ever.

I guess it's just the introvert in me, but I can't feel anything but extremely repulsed when I see large groups of sweaty shouty people. Even if they weren't a bunch of shrieking idiots senselessly destroying things it's hard to have any empathy, and tbh I don't think I would feel very bad if tanks started running them over or maybe somebody wanted to get in there and play GTA a little while. Fire in a population dense place has a way of spreading and killing people a lot more indiscriminately than even that would. All those alt right fuckheads in Michigan should have been mowed down last month when they stormed government buildings while open carrying too for that matter, so don't read that as a lol ironic fascism thing. (If I wanted to be facist I probably wouldn't bother being ironic about it, I think that would probably be missing one of the key points of being fascist...) I'm just happy the guy from Liberia who was on duty as a fire fighter while the business he poured his life savings into was burned down has had a wildly successful GoFundMe. There are still decent people out there willing to step up and help when someone's been put through some shit, even if none of them are currently out on the streets making a spectacle of themselves so the Canadians can laugh at us again.

When I saw those Michigan protests and that they were saying lockdown was 'unconstitutional' I almost couldn't believe it, until I remembered American alt rights can't help but jack each other off about their constitutional rights at every family gathering, weekly shop, or just about anything else they do day to day.

I have been to these family gatherings. Let me tell you they turn uncomfortably gay when all the dicks get whipped out over the apple pie. Not that I'd refer to them as alt right, these are just ordinary rednecks (ruled by their matriarch Karen who is actually *named* Karen for convenient identification purposes...) and alt right is a pretty specific term for a certain brand of extremists.

Some comments from the Skybreak author (who just graduated law school in Minnesota) which I thought were sort of interesting. In part because it confirms for me that a lot of the destruction is being caused by anarchist fuckheads coming from elsewhere to start shit or else experienced stealers doing actual premeditated stealings and just using all of this for a cover. Which I'd heard in a couple of other places but was still regarding as possibly FAKE NEWS. And also it's just nice to know there are still civilized people who can and do know how to do an actual legit protests left in the world, who aren't just randomly smashing windows and burning shit because of their terrible parents and assorted brain problems.

The murderer was charged with murder, with the special add on of 'evincing a depraved mind'.

I'm not sure how many of the fucktarded looters noticed or cared to begin with.

What they're all doing now is just making normal people go "oh hey wow looks like we really do need the police, and need them to crack down harder. A few brutalities directed at other people is very much preferable to everyone being out of a job and on fire."

The angry idiots are all just working against their own cause--the ones that had a cause in the first place anyway beyond just embracing the chaos--and it may counterproductive for any real change to happen. As well as just an extremely shitty situation for people just trying to maintain a normal life when everything was already fucked enough by the virus. The focus is all on the violence and destruction now and not on the city officials able to control the police just routinely letting them do whatever and looking the other way.

Although with some of these places I can't see how burning to the ground could be anything but an improvement tbh. And either way I'm just kind of watching the show and going lol, city people.

They also peppersprayed this grandmotherly looking congresswoman in Columbus. Here she is pictured not being nearly so damn dramatic about it: And there was another, assemblywoman Diana Richarson, who isn't getting as much attention since they're probably worried people will remember she beat her 12 year old son with a broomstick a few years ago and got away with it. There have been other high profile people too and so honestly the cops have really fucked up with that more than with anything else they've done. Most people in America don't have the attention span of a goldfish, but this will probably have consequences even after everyone has moved on to the next thing.

This is vey worrying: The death of George Floyd was a tragedy, but tragedies happen. Looting happens, but in the big picture it is negligible, merely a distraction. What worries me is the loss of accountability. The action of the police suggest that they feel that they can act extrajudicially with impunity. In the 1930s the same happened in Germany, and you know the outcome. If you have lived in America all your life this may sound unreal, but the risk is there. The citizens of Weihmar Republic never expected it could happen to them.

Which 'the police' do you mean exactly that are doing this, because there's several thousand police forces that vary as much as the culture of their individual communities do. And that's ignoring sheriff departments for the sake of simplicity.

I can't say I've noticed anything objectionable in the behavior of any of my local police, and I interact with sheriffs pretty often.

I mean I'm not surprised that officers drawn from shitty populations of shitty cities run by shitty officials will frequently behave shittily, but accountability has to come in at the local level. There's been a definite failing of that in Minneapolis and Seattle and many other cities, but please keep my police out of the discussion of their police.

I like my local police as well and of course the police are not a uniform block (no pun intended), some are good people some are bad people. What I am saying is that some safeguards have gone missing. ;)

It is important to keep these wife-beating trigger-happy bunch in check. In India, a group of policemen shot 4 accused in cold blood and the whole country was celebrating it, no protests, no arrests, nothing.

Well that was four guys who kidnapped, raped and murdered a 27 year old woman so, while not a celebration I'm not sure if we'd exactly be having any riots over that either. But yes your country finally seems to have developed some kind of consciousness of the fact that everyone constantly doing horrible things to women is bad, so just enjoy that for what it is. I'm sure the finer points of criminal justice will come in time.

That's the fun part, the police had no proof that those 4 did it except a confession given on police custody (which is you know not really a confession). They were under extreme pressure from the public and local political bodies to do something about it quickly and might have as well killed 4 innocent people to get off the hook. I won't claim whether the 4 were innocent or not, but it was pretty surprising to see everyone celebrating it as if it was the second coming of Jesus.

Also, yes there are so many rape-murder cases in India that it is easy to get confused.

Oh, well okay yeah then that's bad. I kept seeing references to the text she made to her sister so I was assuming some kind of evidence there. And there had to be something specific there for them to know what had happened at all if the body was burned. But even if they were guilty you obviously don't want Indian police just shooting every rapist they encounter, there aren't enough bullets for that anyhow and many of them would also have to turn the guns on themselves.

No actually, this was a completely different horrible murder-rape.
“The Hyderabad case centers on a young veterinarian who had parked her motor scooter near a toll plaza on the evening of Nov. 27 and came back from an appointment to find that its rear tire was flat. A group of truck drivers offered to help her, the police said, but she suspected that she was in danger,” according to the New York Times. “The police said that the men had in fact deflated the tire as part of a plot to kidnap the young woman. The police added that the men had been drinking. They dragged the woman, who the police said was in her mid-20s, to a bushy area nearby and assaulted her. They then suffocated her and burned her body.”
I think she texted her sister about not trusting them but it was too late to actually get away at that point.

Enforcing those safeguards and most forms of accountability is up to local government though. And while that leads to situations where over the years a lot of corruption has been able to seep in in various places, the only way to really enforce a standard and clean house on a nationwide level there is much closer to the situation you said you were most worried about.

Police are controlled by local government, and local government is controlled by voters. Let's hope that if nothing else this means everyone will be less apathetic about their local elections this year. Those are the only places in US politics where individuals CAN have a real effect to begin with, and the results more directly affect their lives than anything happening in the White House.

I agree though that things had obviously reached a bad point in Minneapolis when the officer that murdered Floyd clearly thought this was a perfectly fine thing to do in front of cameras and witnesses and that there would be no consequences. His record is such that he should've been fired long before he escalated things to casual murder. But that's the city's fuckup, and one that they've hopefully now learned not to repeat.

Of course I'm also pretty convinced that society will never learn anything but the exact wrong lessons from anything that ever happens. (And only ever figure out the right ones a few decades later, before promptly applying it to their new, different problems are like an angry retard child insistently trying to jam a square peg into a round hole ..)

My town had like 25 people show up in front of the police station to chant 'Don't Shoot' in front of a news camera and look vaguely silly.

Mostly Karens, a couple of reluctant husbands, and some of them brought their kids along.

The police offered them bottled water afterwards, probably under the mistaken belief that all the middle aged women were raising and lowering their arms for an aerobics class.

There was one Muslim lady so that was interesting because I've never seen her around before. But maybe they rented her for the occasion because they needed SOME form of minority.

So the cop had charges upgraded to second degree murder, and the other cops that were just hanging around watching this happen are being charged with aiding and abetting.

To me the thing that's come out of all this as most upsetting and the most likely to have long term consequences is the reveal that so much of the destruction I was initially getting pissed at rioters for is now confirmed to have been planned, caused, and funded by people who are essentially terrorists. Been listening to these people bitch and whine and lust for anarchy and mass death for years and I guess some of them are now using this as a test run.

So the fallout from that should be fun, especially since it can only really escalate from here. Looters and arsonists today, probably mass shooters and bombs before long all for the retarded agenda of spoiled kids whose wealthy parents sent them off to college to be inducted into a cult.

I think it is right that the three others have been charged. At the same time I hope they will be acquitted, because they were basically all new on the job. In many other western countries there is a mandatory trial if someone dies an unnatural death. It would be nice to do the same in the US. I have much more faith in the outcome when there was a proper trial rather than just a DA making up his mind whether to bring charges.

I'm just really amused there were protesters riding horses in Houston the other day. Even if things eventually did go wrong there it seems like they've been handling it better than most of these cities.

I'm sure plenty of have thought of the first one already, the tendency for people to be that way is kind of why laws exist in the first place.

The guy getting smooshed by the statue is on video, just like all the other jackassery lately. He's still alive somehow and I don't understand how, or how more people weren't seriously hurt considering the jaw dropping idiocy and lack of understanding of concepts like 'gravity' on display as they all cluster around the fatally heavy object and pull it *towards* them. But I guess people with work experience doing anything physical and basic common sense don't tend to join Antifa.

Anyway, I just learned Antifa is coming to Gonzales in a few days so that should be interesting. I'm sure it's reasonable for them to think they'd be able to freely bully a tiny town of 7000 people under other circumstances, but attacking Gonzales and a lot of those little towns around there known mostly for their history is going to be looked at by everyone in the area like dropping their pants and shitting directly on the Alamo while screaming that they hate Jesus and John Wayne.

Oh and the reason is because they're mad Gonzales has a statue of the leader of the Republic of Texas. You know, the hero of the the Texas Revolution who took out Santa Anna and avenged the massacre of the Alamo, who also voted for slave-free territories and was against joining the Confederacy. The guy adopted by the Cherokee who had Houston, the most diverse city in the nation named after him. That guy. Texas needs to just STOP with caring about this racist loser, damn.

So I think liberals are done caring about equality for awhile, judging by how butthurt and angry they're getting over low income kids being able to attend better schools.

I've been too busy this week to go delving into any kind of social media outbursts where I'm sure there true lols are to be had, but a highlight so far has been an article I found that cited quotes from fucking Thomas Jefferson and James Madison as part of their argument. It's like, make up your minds people, are you tearing their statues down or propping up their corpses to make your points (about how poor minorities don't deserve an education)?

Oh, and they're going to be removing the Emancipation Memorial in Boston. The money for building it was raised entirely by former slaves but hey, fuck those guys.

Although at least it's being removed legally and following a petition, because yes, it is possible to do that kind of thing like civilized people and get results without turning into a frothing mob of retards over it.

I'm not sure if the cities that have been having all the property damage will have the funds to replace any of these statues with statues of something more popular and acceptable. (Really hard to see why they'd bother sinking that kind of money into fixing anything for a bunch of animals who prefer to live in a trash heap to just tear it down again ofc, let alone prettify it with expensive memorials...) But in this case there was an earlier design suggestion for the Emancipation Memorial that had black Civil War soldiers along with Lincoln, that had be scrapped at the because of the expense. So replicating that that would be a cool idea, if any of these kids were capable of being satisfied with anything.

I kind of am over caring about a lot of this stuff, realistically I don't really gaf if people want to shit in the place where they eat, but it really really bugs me seeing so much history just dismissed completely or else dumbed down to er, black and white. Nothing good ever comes of that, but on the other hand I think everyone is soon to be too much of a twitchy vacant eyed jelly creature restlessly tabbing through Twitter on multiple monitors to notice or care.

Also there's the fact that a bunch of old statues aren't hurting anybody, but the widespread corruption within the police in some of cities that never got fully sorted out before they all changed focus like the ADD little shortbus kids they are still can.
