Animals...

People using the excuse that protesters were around him and breaking curfew so it was justified.

Let's just ignore the fact that the curfews against protests are unconstitutional as-is...they're justified for shooting the guy because he was around protesters. ****, where do you draw the line? Apparently you don't.

You’re right.  But they would get a pardon from Trump. ;) 

This is what worries me the most about if police or boogaloos do decide to enact violence against citizens...if Trump just says he'll pardon anyone who "punishes" protesters, he'll effectively have a white supremacist militia on his side. And they'll be near untouchable...or at least think they are.

You think him pardoning Chauvin would get flak? Just wait.

Remember when Trump offered to pay the legal expenses of any supporter who attacked one of the peaceful protesters at his 2016 rallies?  Remember when people said he was “joking” and to take him “seriously, but not literally”.

Yeeeeaaaaahhhhh...

I've been thinking about smaller towns unleashing the full urban response units on peaceful gatherings of 10-20 highschool kids (cause their in fear about what they've been seeing on the news and reading on Facebook) a lot this week.

Is it unfair to give a little blame to the president for setting the tone on that? 

All of these cops are convinced that Antifa is poised to descend on their tiny little backwoods town. 

Most of those redneck departments are probably itching to finally use their APCs and MRAPs for something other than parades.

More about the jobs report and whether Trump could have manipulated the data:

The Bureau of Labor Statistics, which is part of the Labor Department, calculates this data. Some have questioned whether Trump might have manipulated it since it is from a government agency, but economists and former government staffers of both parties have firmly rejected that.

“You can 100% discount the possibility that Trump got to the BLS. Not 98% discount, not 99.9% discount, but 100% discount,” tweeted Jason Furman, the former top economist for President Barack Obama. “BLS has 2,400 career staff of enormous integrity and one political appointee with no scope to change this number.”

The bureau used the same methodology that it uses every month: It looks at who was working and who wasn’t mid-month. Specifically, the agency looked at the week of May 10 to 16. Like always, the Census Bureau collected data for the BLS in two ways. In one survey, census workers literally go out and ask some people about their situation, and in the other, BLS workers look at company and government payrolls from 140,000 establishments to see how many people are employed and how many hours they are working.

Here’s why economists struggled: By May 16, more than 38 million unemployment claims had been filed, which easily implied a 20 percent unemployment rate. It was also several million more unemployment claims than at the end of April, which made economists think the May picture was getting worse. What economists missed is that some of those workers who had filed unemployment claims were starting to go back to work. There wasn’t good data on that.

Sorry if already posted. I might need to log out of the internet for a few days to decompress. What is going on?

 

 

That’s soooooo yesterday.  We’re on to bigger and better things today such as cracking old people’s skulls on concrete.

Someone tweeted that the old guy who's in the hospital having his brain scanned right now staged it. The tweeter said that he used fake blood and it was all because of the effects of 5G. He even included a link to a blog that explained it all. America's rabbit hole is a freakin' chasm at this point.

Nothing brings me more joy than seeing these brave blue line soldiers rolling through a crowd of hippies and useless millennials! Get a job already! The videos you are showing that ‘prove’ police brutality are obvious antifa fakes. Me and butt conservative Christian libertarian friends enjoy every injury inflicted. DONTTREADONME
