Illegal.

Oh yeah, that doesn't exist anymore.

AP's word choice in their headline is certainly misleading.  Minneapolis is not embattled.  Minneapolis is pissed and united.

Right.  Posse comitatus?  WTF is that?  Hell, those f*cking choads can't even pronounce it.  And that bloated toad Barr doesn't give a shiat about the law, only the Party.

Are they really going to break that large of a segment out of Trump's Fox News human centipede over this?

/they will stand around and do nothing
//nothing except fabricate lies to tell their right wing buddies
///about all the minority heads they smashed
////and thus the sickness continues to grow on all fronts

It's all over the country. There aren't enough military police.

Ayup.  Protesters set the Justice Center here in downtown Portland on fire tonight.
 
2020-05-30 3:07:34 AM  
Isn't this what the National Guard is for? Or is Trump demanding we use the military so he is in charge?

Yikes! With everything else going on, we're lucky that the utility infrastructure in this country is in tip-top condish and we don't regularly have increasingly erratic and severe weather events like 100 year storms, hurricanes, or massive forest fires.

When this is all done, I hope Martin Barrman ends up pissing himself while deciding to shoot himself to avoid capture. Just like the original.

In CNN's 30 seconds of protest coverage I saw this morning, they said there are protests in at least 20 states.

Then they went back to talking about those Lake of the Ozarks assholes who contracted the coronavirus so I turned the channel.

Way to be relevant CNN.

Oh wow really? I was supposed to be taking a flight back up there next week...how bad was it?

( based on my experience living there it probably was a small fire, all things considered. Portland brings the numbers but despite Antifa's ferocity, never the weapons)

I for one am sick and tired of these violent protest, using any excuse to loot and burn crap

Yes, that would be the next necessary step if your end goal is civil war.
 
2020-05-30 7:29:28 AM  
Do the military police have jurisdiction over civilians? Is civilian policing part of the military's role?

I keep thinking of a lovely and polite young security guard I'd see every day in Minneapolis Target Center vacationing twenty years ago, hoping she didn't go on to become a cop...

That's 100% unambiguously legal, arguably on a constitutional level and definitelyon a statutory level well beyond what congress could change in time to be relevant to this situation even if they wanted to.  Which realistically even most of the GOP traitors don't.

I know this has all been said up-thread, but this is one of those "bears repeating" ones.

Yeah, it's much better when billionaires loot and burn crap under the color of law and order.

Ha.  typed "legal" instead of "illegal" in my previous post, derp.  Guess I need to quit drinking again.

We will find out, based on how Trump tries to regulate Reddit, Twitter, FB, and Insta, using this week's executive order. Is posting video of the riots a political act? How about posting video of police? How about comments that criticize the police, or support rioters?

I have every faith that Twitter and Facebook will do what they've done in the illiberal democracies of Europe: ignore the law and listen to the President. I think there is no American exceptionalism for corporations that spend their time ignoring and changing American law. Move fast and break things. They will continue to do what theyve always done, in China, in the ME, wherever.

I am so, argh, worried, that Trump will get Dorsey and Zuckerberg to shut down, or drastically throttle, their networks at the same time as the Pentagons military police arrive. The sudden glitches and lag would be immediately evident to the protesters and everyone in the city, regardless of participation? I don't know if that would prevent the protests from coordinating and they would disperse, or if that would push the whole city over the edge into panic and pandemonium.

I realize I might be skirting the shoals of paranoia there.

I've seen Neil Young's "Ohio" referenced many times over the past few days.
You might all give Gordon Lightfoot's Black Day in July another listen too.  Here's just one verse of it:
In the office of the President
The deed is done the troops are sent
There's really not much choice you see
It looks to us like anarchy
And then the tanks go rolling in
To patch things up as best they can
There is no time to hesitate
The speech is made the dues can wait
 
2020-05-30 7:34:04 AM  
Is Trump at the White House this weekend?  Is he actually seeing this happening at his front door?

Or is he off at Camp David golfing again?
 
2020-05-30 7:34:15 AM  
Look at all the learning going on here because this is unprecedented.

Well that's one way to lose the 3-4% of black voters that supposedly love Trump.


November is going to be what GoT season 8 should have been like. You know, stakes actually being incredibly high.

Wonderful stupidity here. Blaming protesters for being angry, believing enough anarchy will be maintained to result in a canceled election, then believing that we would still have the 4 year term structure of the presidency after all that anarchy. All wrapped in a warm blanket of smug.

Beautifully done in just 2 short sentences.

Since this is their worst nightmare come true, I'm sure all the AR-15 stroking, big government hating, oppression-obsessed right wingers are gonna show up in force with their long guns and body armor at long last to prevent the federal government from illegally invading and taking over, right?

Right?

He may lose a small number of soft supporters, but he's stoking the bloodlust of his hateful, fearful, racist base and galvanizing their energetic support, if not actual armed emulation
