Supposedly "His ex fiancé had identified him as Jacob Pederson. Said those are her gloves and identified his mask and him."

His demeanor and the way he threatens the guy with the pizza is immediately recognizable as a cop regardless. This happened in Ferguson all the time ....


Nice umbrella when it's not raining. Bet that's very visible to your cop buddies.

Apparently his ex says he's psychotic. It's been said there's a 40% domestic violence rate in law enforcement.

AutoZone is also where the fire started, I believe. Which consumed entire blocks and the police and firefighters did nothing For Some Reason.

Ferguson happened and nothing changed.

Minneapolis Police Officer who murdered George Floyd on May 25, 2020

The restraint technique used by Chauvin to murder Floyd was not part of the department's training

Being represented by Tom Kelly, the same attorney who got officer Jeronimo Yanez (who murdered Philando Castile) acquitted

Derek Chauvin was put on leave in 2011 for an inappropriate police shooting of Alaskan Native American, Leroy Martinez

Chauvin shot Ira Latrell Toles, an unarmed black 21 year old man in 2008

Chauvin was one of the officers who murdered Wayne Reyes, a latino man with 16 bullets forced into him (a total of 42 rounds were shot off)

Chauvin and another officer were chasing a car in 2005 causing the death of three people according to Communities United Against Police Brutality

There are 12 Police brutality complaints against Chauvin in the Minneapolis Office of Police Conduct complaint database.

They are all listed as "closed", "non-public", and "no discipline".

"Dystopia is not an image of property damage. Dystopia is a ten-minute video of four police officers slowly killing a man in front of witnesses and doing so without a trace of fear. If you only saw the dystopia when when property caught fire, you're part of the problem."

K. Thor Jensen writes:

In the United States, police officers fatally shoot about three people per day on average, a number that’s close to the yearly totals for other wealthy nations.

Law enforcement officers in the U.S. intentionally or accidentally killed more than 6,800 civilians between 2013 and 2018. An officer was charged with a crime in 1.7% of the cases.

Police have unlawfully seized over $35 billion in property, disproportionately from low-income people, without convicting or in some cases even accusing them of a crime.

Example: Police pulled Phil Parhamovitch over for a $25 ticket. They also took his entire life savings, over $91,000.

40% of police officer families experience domestic violence, compared to 10% of the general population. Of officers convicted of domestic abuse, more than half kept their jobs.

Findings suggest that (a) police sexual violence is a “pattern prone” offense that often involves recidivist officers who victimize multiple persons and (b) that a striking number of police accused of sex crimes manage to escape appropriate penalties.

The increased spread of police militarization, where officers are equipped with armored vehicles and advanced weaponry, does not reduce violent crime or make officers safety. Instead, it siphons money from communities to arms manufacturers.

Often, there's also organized groups of white people destroying property, with cop-like branding. I suppose if a riot is anticipated, it attracts certain people ... to a man, they all have weapons that a regular protester would be unlikely to carry ...

"In March 2017, Phil Parhamovich, a musician from Madison, Wisconsin, was pulled over by Wyoming Highway Patrol for allegedly not wearing his seatbelt and not staying in his lane. The trooper began aggressively questioning Phil about details of his trip that had nothing to do with the traffic stop. Several law enforcement officers searched Phil’s minivan, but found no drugs or anything illegal—only the $91,800 that he'd hidden in the speaker cabinet for safe keeping - his life savings. The police took and kept it."

She who must not be named

https://www.lgbtqnation.com/2020/05/har ... ar-old-fan

"“Harry Potter” author tweets profane transphobic message to 9-year-old fan"

She's become an extremist anti-LGBT bigot - it's been obvious from her Twitter for years. She's not going to change at all at this point. This was not an isolated incident at all, it's part of a long and well documented pattern of behavior.

Terfism (originally Transgender Exclusionary Radical Feminism) is, more or less, a branch of N_zism which replaces the absurd conspiracy theory of an "international jewish conspiracy" with an "international gender conspiracy."

It mostly attacks transgender women but is also anti-LGBT generally, and right-wing traditionalist. (It does masquerade as feminism to a point, but radicalizes people quickly into anti-feminism and into leading G@merg@te-style harassment campaigns).

They also call themselves "Gender Critical" and congregate at a site called MumsN#t, which is like a Chan/Anon board for middle-aged reactionaries.

It's an evil ideology which has become mainstream in the UK press for some reason, and among UK writers like Graham Linehan.

Terfs like Linehan dedicate their lives, and all of their time, to their anti-LGBT cause, with cult-like energy.

Is there any other job, except for American police officer, where you can shoot and kill three people every day because you feel like it, and suffer no consequences whatsoever?

Soldier? President?

6,800 civilians killed between 2013 and 2018.
3 per day.
$35 billion seized.

We spend too much money on the police, like we do on the military. It's almost the same thing. So much budget goes to the police, so little to anything else. I think we should defund them immediately.

As I said yesterday, call me crazy, but if someone's job is to shoot my son 76 times and drag him down some stairs, I don't want that job to exist.

"It seems like a lot of other countries manage to maintain taxpayer funded publicly accountable police forces without constantly shooting unarmed black men. So what can we learn from them?"

I don't want to defund other countries' police, I want to defund the police we have, which are killing 3 people a day. If that leads to something else which doesn't carry guns, we can have that discussion.

I want ICE prosecuted!

Trump has announced, via Twitter, that they will consider it a terrorist act to oppose fascism. Having a very normal one here.

https://globalnews.ca/news/7008890/anti ... d-protests

Ted Cruz's bill to designate Antifa a terrorist organization used the words "Antifa" and "left-wing activism" interchangeably.

Supporters of Donald Trump have committed dozens of murders and acts of terrorism over the last few years while antifascist activists have committed none.

girlziplocked writes:
I don't think most people are willing to fathom what they have so far convinced themselves is unfathomable to believe about this administration but there is less and less unfathomability left and most of what is left is packing people up and shipping them to camps.

As far as I am concerned, leaving millions of poor and uninsured Americans to figure out how to fight coronavirus for themselves was a deliberate act of genocide.

Lee Carter writes:

Antifa is not an organization. It has no membership. It has no leaders. This is a blanket order for the Feds to round up anyone they find politically inconvenient, and to do it under antiterrorism laws that strip you of essentially all your constitutional rights.

NYAF writes:
Y'all realize that when he says "ANTIFA" he means everyone on the streets? That he means anyone who protests or opposes his regime ever? This has nothing to do with whether you like antifa or even what antifa is about. You're not safe just because you think you're not "antifa".
