Nonono, eight cops responded for what they thought presumed was a demonic, aggressive, firebreathing black male, and were all set to release all their aggressions or get their thrill kill for the day.
They won’t name the officers, so sleep gently knowing that these assholes are still running around, “on duty,” looking for less-famous people of color to rough up
lol at the idea of a cop facing any sort of consequences for their actions.
worst case scenario they get a short suspension with full pay
They didn’t release their names, and say they have been “disciplined”, the instigator of it all should lose his badge. I didn’t see a single action or movement that could have been interpreted as hostile or threatening.
Milwaukee sure doesn’t mean “the good land” anymore.
In a related story, the NFL has just passed a rule saying that all of their players must agree to be tased for any reason or face fines.
Wonder if Milwaukee was trying to get ahead of it because: A. it’s a really shitty thing to have happened and they are remorseful about it, or B. he’s a basketball player for the Bucks and it was going to come out anyway?
Milwaukee Police Chief Alfonso Morales held a presser this evening and released a statement apologizing for the unnecessary force used on Brown.
1: He violates the Constitution every fucking day, and no one has done a goddamn thing about it. Doubt this is going to be high on anyone’s list.
^ This, is a good question.
Somebody on NPR was making a point today that standing for the anthem wasn’t even a thing 10 or so years ago. It all came about from that deal where our tax money was used to pay for it.
As with everything else, once it is out in the open, it can’t be pulled back.
I can’t think of a demographically more rigid and…
This policy is the very definition of “out of sight, out of mind” protest-busting, where you’re freely allowed to protest anything you like as long as nobody has to see you and thus has to think about what you’re protesting.
Craven fucking cowards.
The defense tried that argument. The ruling addressed it: “But through his Twitter bio and the way in which he frequently uses the medium to comment on public policy, Trump portrays his account as presidential “and, more importantly, uses the account to take actions that can be taken only by the President as…
I think there was already a case determining that the @RealDonaldTrump account is an official account that needs to be archived pursuant to some open government law. I don’t think he gets to really have a “personal” account. He definitely doesn’t use it for unofficial business.
So blocking haters on twitter is illegal, but his 50,000 violations of the emoluments clause is okay??
Trump right now
Except that he uses @realdonaldtrump to announce Presidential appointments, policy positions, post photo ops, etc. so it is effectively an official account.
I know it’s a victory and all but there’s still something incredibly depressing about this even being a thing...
