Absolute $hit show in Louisville.  Police murdered a man.  It came to light that the body cameras were turned off during the incident.  Police chief has been fired.  People are calling for the Mayor to resign.

Every cop should have a body camera in 2020.  It being off should never be an excuse. 

Why was the police chief fired?  Did he order the cameras off or fired for not arresting the shooting officer?   Why do people want the Mayor to resign?

The entire written statement from General Mattis should be required reading:

Spent the day at the DC marches yesterday. It was mostly peaceful, respectful. Angry at times, but definitely peaceful. We had a hiccup at one point after a group gathered at the Lincoln for some spee

The DC curfew is 7pm. Why are the cops/NG/etc doing this now?

I’m guessing to clear protesters away from WH before Trump comes out. But what a crazy scene it is on tv while waiting for him

They just incited a peaceful protest which will soon bring in the violent elements across a bunch of cities,  so not good

Right. Because the “violent elements” weren’t coming anyway. There’s still free  TVs and sneakers to be had

Seattle police were instructed to turn off their body cameras when these protests started.  Most of them have also covered their badge numbers and names with black tape.

This alone is worthy of protest, much less the actual reason behind the protests.

Seattle police have been hyperagressive since the WTO riots.   They have a history of excessive force.  Why would they want to help document it?  

 

But to come from the top as policy? Makes no sense other than the obvious. WTF.

There's a peaceful protest going on near our local mall in Jensen Beach. They were initially on mall grounds, were asked to move, and did so peacefully. It's heartbreaking to hear the message of people losing their lives due to police brutality, and it has to stop.

You answered your own question.

I asked it assuming that top officials weren't assuming police brutality.

Law and Order President.

Governor's to use the National Guard to "dominate" the streets.  If they don't do it the Military will.

It's about time!

:thumbup:

Dominate the streets is the scariest live phrase I’ve heard on tv

Because military escalation against peaceful protest is truly how the Founding Fathers envisioned this nation.

A week long protest is long enough.  You can resume your regularily scheduled protests after the Anarchy is taken care of.  You are welcome.

Why do you hate the Bill of Rights?  (Referring to law enforcement/military shooting tear gas at peaceful protesters).

Or we can continue protesting police brutality for as long as we have to. Trump has abdicated his leadership role when he threatened the American people's right to peaceably assemble.

What??? Why? 

Body cameras are probably the best form of evidence for the actual truth. 

Seattle police have been hyperagressive since the WTO riots.   They have a history of excessive force.  Why would they want to help document it?  

Their stated reason, for Woz's benefit, is that officers are prohibited by the SPD Police Manual from filming lawful demonstrations.

I'll just leave that right there.
