    So Antifa posted that they are going to "fuck up the city" tonight and then march into the Privileged areas.  Their twitter account has now been suspended.
    Here it is...

    I don’t care if it’s officially BLM, antifa or not. Any protestors with this mentality are no better than what they are pretending to protest. Targeting groups based on color....isn’t there a word for that?

    False flag from a white nationalist group. Thanks for the hot take though.

    A Twitter account claiming to belong to a national “antifa” organization and pushing violent rhetoric related to ongoing protests has been linked to the white nationalist group Identity Evropa, according to a Twitter spokesperson.
    How does that change what I said? I said I don’t care if it’s them or not. Some, not all or even most, but some protestors are openly saying the same thing while marching. You haven’t heard chants of “kill white people” or “kill cops”?  Even some on this forum were openly promoting to physically beat random cops.
    Again, not most, but it’s out there. And those people are just as bad as what they are protesting.
    Have there been any actual confirmed reports of chants during any of these protests/riots to "kill white people" or "kill cops"? I haven't seen or heard that.
    I saw it on live TV being played out. Can’t remember which channel as I’ve switched from Fox, CNN and MSNBC. But yeah, on live TV a group was chanting “kill white people” while holding a sign that read the same. Wasn’t discussed by the anchor when it happened and haven’t heard anyone discuss it since. But it happened.  And I’ve seen many examples of people promoting violence against cops.

    And I’ll say again, I know it’s not the majority.

    For the most part... it seems to peaceful protesting for most of the day.. then as the day gets later and evening approaches, instigators join in and start rioting/looting.    Under the cover of peaceful protesters.  Making it hard for the government to enforce because the looters/rioters are mixed in with legit protesters.  

    I suppose that's why they're trying to start curfews.   Try to get the peaceful protesters to go home, so that they aren't caught in the mix with the shit disturbers.

    Yeah, protest hackers are making it hard for legit protester to make a positive difference. 

    Along with protesting/ peaceful civil disobedience comes the hard work of making change happen through community programs, awareness education, deprogramming children taught to be haters and racists, and electing better, more qualified officials and representative, starting at the top where the most festering and fetid sore resides.

    No, it’s not. Setting fires to random businesses is the way to go!

    Did you ever consider that instead of saying, "it's terrible that black people are getting killed by police brutality, but this rioting needs to end" the world would be better off if more people said "it's terrible that people are rioting, but black people getting killed by police brutality needs to end"?

    mcgruff10 said:
    @tbergs I am almost positive you are from Minnesota.  Question, is Minneapolis pretty racist or is this a isolated incident?  Were you surprised this happened?
    @mcgruff10 Yes, I am. I grew up in rural MN, but have lived and worked in the MPLS/St. Paul metro area for most of the last 20+ years. I mentioned in another thread after this happened that I briefly lived in the area where Floyd died and know many people from around that area.

    In relation to this incident, I have been trying to refrain from offering my candid opinion in most settings because it would mean openly mentioning my background of law enforcement and what I know existed at least 10 years ago when I was still knee deep in everything LE (and we know how mentioning our professions goes around here sometimes). I don't know that I can explain it very well. I stepped away from that role and work for a college campus now as the director of public safety which is leaps and bounds different than the chaos a police officer on the city streets has to deal with on a daily basis.

    I think there is a very fine line and even the best officers have their moments because they are flawed humans. Most of the bias exists in the 15+ year veterans from my experience, but the bias often expands far beyond race. It is a disdain for those who choose to harm themselves and others, whether it be assault, theft, substance abuse or one of the many other vices that plague the entire world. There is no excuse for intentional violence or abuse of power against anyone when you choose to wear the badge, but I think some lose that rose colored tint after being exposed to the same situations and people day in and day out. The same justice system you see fail minorities, fails police as well. That slam dunk domestic assault where they had to pull the suspect off the victim ends up getting pled down to a misdemeanor with probation. Or the stabbing in the alley of a bar where the suspect is screaming about murdering their ex as they're being taken in to custody seems like a no-brainer to be at least a 2nd degree assault with a deadly weapon ends up being a disorderly conduct and 5th degree assault. Cops lose that feeling and sense of "I" can make a difference the longer they see the same result and cycle continue. When this attitude and race intersect, it's a recipe for disaster, even if it did not have to do with race it can never not be about race. The present doesn't yet allow us to move beyond the past race inequities because we have not taken the necessary steps to ensure the future will be any different.

    I worked with officers who were great people and didn't have any racial prejudice, but they did have a bit of an attitude (which is another stigma of LE that I think is getting better) that made them feel the need to make sure they were in control. It wasn't a situation where any policy or human rights violation was being committed, but it was a lesser standard of patience and due care. Maybe instead of gently assisting someone off the ground in cuffs, it was a tug and a jerk because they just had to wrestle with the person for 5 minutes to get them cuffed. No blatant hitting, kicking or physical abuse, but a less courteous approach.

    When it comes to Minneapolis specifically, I can only speak from what I know or saw personally through friends or colleagues who worked for that department because I did not work for them. I can tell you that it was one of the few departments in the state that I absolutely did not want to work for because there was a reputation I was not interested in being a part of. I think things have change a little, but the "joke" has always been that St. Paul was the clean and friendly PD to work for, but once you crossed the river beware. St. Paul has since had many of their own issues, but for the most part has maintained a better reputation.

    When I was an intern in college, the agency I worked for did a search warrant on the residence of a drug dealer/gang member. This was a white male who lived in the basement of his parent's house. It was, to say lightly, a shit hole. This guy literally had a piss and shit bucket in the corner of the basement about 20 feet from their bed. During the search there was an MPD officer who I had come to know as a bit more aggressive in his attitude and approach that decided he'd had enough and just trashed the place worse than it needed to be. Searches of people's homes are usually disrupting enough and the goal is to try and leave it as much like you found it as possible, but that was not what he did. That along with the other things I'd heard about MPD told me all I needed to know about the type of officers that I would be working with if I chose to work there. Of course, not all MPD officers were or are that way, but it's also easy for small behaviors and attitudes to go unchecked which can lead to an overly toxic environment where even new officers can be unknowingly trained to respond the same way.

    What I was most surprised about in the Floyd death is that MPD actually has a policy in place yet that allows for a knee to the back of the neck to be administered in any situation. I know it is a somewhat rare policy and is only allowed by officers specifically trained to administer it, but it reminds me a lot of the "sleeper hold" restraint that was discontinued years ago. I was originally trained on how to administer that, but most departments had policies in place that didn't allow it because it was so dangerous and if not done correctly could cause death. While a knee to the back of the neck generally isn't something that can restrict breathing or obstruct an airway, it just doesn't seem like a restraint method steeped in a lot of actual purpose and just looks bad. Generally placing a knee directly between the shoulder blades will be sufficient so I don't understand why a department, especially one that has had its share of excessive force issues, would not remove it as an accepted form of restraint.

    Take it for what it's worth, but I think what I see in Mpls. is what you will find in any major metro area all over the country. There's a disparate amount of racial inequity, which leads to more frequent contact with police and in turn more situations where excessive force is being used. I don't have any answers. This incident has baffled me because it seems so apparent that the officers should have assessed the situation long before Floyd stopped breathing. Sure, people lie to the police and exaggerate the trauma or pain they are under all the time, but never have I seen someone be disregarded for so long. I can't imagine being one of the officers and not doing a physical assessment at any point, especially after he became motionless. At that point you know you're restraining a limp body. Figure it the fuck out and be a person.

    Too many cops are trained to enforce the letter of the law and I think that is to their detriment because there are many situations where circumstances dictate that it's not in the best interest of public safety or even makes sense. Off the top of my head, I think of the recent arrest of the CNN team and then the next day a local news station photographer. That's where I can only assume that those cops were told "clear everyone out and arrest anyone who doesn't leave" so they did exactly that. Good cops need to be able to apply rational thought, but I think this is where training and education need to be improved and expanded. We need veteran training officers who have these abilities and knowledge and can instill it in younger officers. There will still be mistakes, but hopefully they will be fewer and far between.

    I don't know. I just rambled on for a few paragraphs and I'm not sure any of it makes sense.
    Thank you for posting.  Probably the most honest post yet. And good for you for having the courage to walk away and serving and protecting your community it a positive way.

    This is a great way of explaining things to people.  Really shows the power of framing.

    You need the Halifax 3D glasses and pay per view account to see the Team Trump Treason P-Tape with bonus play by play and additional footage of the re-enactment. PM for details.
    Is it your voice that narrates the play by play?
    It’s my voice doing Howard Cosell doing play by play.

    How did you manage a totally blank post? 

    I thought one had to at least post the traditional “.”

    Nice knowing ya, tempo ;)
    If I did that I would be horrified and apologetic. Spreading white nationalist propaganda is kinda a big deal. I hope I would get called out if I spread such trash. But that's just me. 

    Apparently holding people to account for spreading dangerous misinformation is now a "burn him" offense. There are some pretty delicate flowers here if that's the case.

    But thanks for your ever valuable insight from the high and mighty peanut gallery.

    I saw many races setting fires and stealing shit here the last couple days and nights. This isn’t necessarily a white supremacist thing, to me it’s mostly about opportunism and a complete lack of conscience. 
    Also a perfect storm of the COVID19 virus, economy shutdown then millions suddenly unemployed and guess one could add being cooped up for weeks. America is NOT looking great right now.

    Peace
    No, it’s not. Setting fires to random businesses is the way to go!

    Obviously I support the protests themselves (does it even need to be said at this point?) but the damage caused (and people injured) in the process is over the top and fucked up. 
    America has never looked great in my lifetime. Can’t wait to leave it. I’ll sure as hell never love it. 

    You have an in with Canada? They already rejected me, won’t let me in. And I’ve liked the Hip, OLP, Rush and Matthew Good for decades. And hockey. Still, no dice.

    Are you and that Hugh fella related? :lol:

    You brought it up to him twice. We all got it; it was an honest mistake. So, I’ll comment as I wish, and you can be as snooty as you like. 

    Good day, sir.

    I said GOOD DAY.
