The crime against George Floyd is still fresh in the mind and now, Jacob Blake is shot seven times in the back, in front of his Kids, by a Policeman not under any apparent threat.

And "A woman sits at a table, recoiling in fear. She is penned in, surrounded by a mob of masked men and women, their clenched fists raised menacingly in the air. Again and again the rhythmic chants go up: 'White silence is violence! No justice, no peace!' The woman shrinks further back in her chair. The mob moves in. Some of them lean into her face. They stand over her, fists raised, shrieking and shouting, demanding that she too raises her arm in salute."

Roger,
The far Left (BLM and ANTIFA) are demonstrating for Socialism and the Democratic Party and the far Right is not taking their BS. First BLM only if a black man is killed by a white cop which last year only 8 unarmed blacks were killed by police and some of the police were black. Of black homicides 90% of them are perpetrated by blacks but that does not make news only when police kill a black.

There is MUCH tension within the police force in democratic controlled cities as police funding is being withheld and felons are being released because of no bail laws. 

Some statics. https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2016/crime-in-the-u.s.-2016/tables/expanded-homicide-data-table-3.xls

I'm looking forward to the aftermath.

Elizabeth from Knoxville, Tennessee, on her failed attempt at "storming the capitol", cuz, you know... "it's a revolution".

Whats in a name?  Well, I see that Lady Gaga is to sing the anthem at Joe Biden's inauguration.  Biden might not be the world's/USA' No 1 choice for president (although he has be be an improvement on his predecessor and I wish him well), but given the criticisms of him I would have thought that Lady Gaga was an unfortunate choice!

Police drug raids - what with restraint by knee on neck, one wonders what might be going on in the minds of those who train the Police in the USA ??
