Worst. Protest Coverage. Ever.

The footage from Portland is really kind of weird.

Greil: DOCTORD000M: Noctusxx: Cops are complaining about laser pointers from the crowd

Sounds like an excuse to clear the crowd.

Just realized, the NG was here a nit ago. the bike cops got pushed behind them in fact. where are they now?


i saw them pull out once the cops had the new fence line in place.  not sure where they went

Someone with an iPhone should walk into that ground in Seattle and airdrop to everyone, that has not turned off the setting "for contacts only", a note saying disperse and meetup a few blocks over. To bolt and move quickly as they can

You like yelling Fire in theaters and laughing at people being killed don't you.

Oh man, he tried to teach him how and I would have used breathes as a timing, and now he got a drink and he's back at it.

He's gotta get someone, hopefully that white guy with no timing and a loud voice to help out.

Come on mysterious gods, this is your chance.

What are you talking about? This is nothing like that at all. AirDrop makes a very small ding noise and ask you to accept what is being sent your way. It's not screaming in the least. It's actually a quick way to communicate with out having someone's number
 
2020-06-07 12:57:31 AM  
Doesn't look like the cops are doing anything in Seattle. Not enough of them to go on offense.  At this point it's just overtime for the cops, watching people with umbrellas.  Which you don't usually see in Seattle, even when it rains.
 
2020-06-07 12:58:06 AM  
cops are claiming laser pointers again.  they have said they are going to take away the right to protest if it happens again

Just need to make sure they say that every 15 min and then they have justification to do whatever they want, whenever they want.

So there's a camera crew from KOIN in PDX embedded with the cops apparently?

LRAD doesn't put on a show for the cameras so that's my bet. Isn't it not supposed to be used this way though?
 
2020-06-07 1:03:36 AM  
I guess the protestors can't see that they put them in, but some word of mouth has to be quick?

Charge now before the sonic attack

Portland banned the LRAD, I would be impressed if SPD tried it.

Hah, seattle folks asking to see the cops' managers. God, I miss living there.

camera angels are not letting me see far enough behind the cops to see if they have a LRAD mounted anywhere

Tactical advantage. Sooner or later, the police will discover what it's like to have a panopticon on then all the time,

cops claiming lasers again.
 
2020-06-07 1:09:49 AM  
How would they even shine lazers on the front line with all of those umbrellas there?  fark that, you would see it.

This is boring. Has Trump tweeted anything stupid lately?

I think I understand you better now.

You were describing the sides of a hypothetical debate, not taking the police side in this thread. I, and a few others I see, thought you were taking the Boogaloo/AltRight side.

Absolutely not taking the side of the alt-right/boogaloo/facists/white supremacists.  Fark them.


Amen.

Boring is better than full blown chaos and people getting f*cked up by cops. I'm okay with it.

Cops in PDX didn't even have gas masks on.

Someone upthread mentioned them shooting gas earlier and their mayor had supposedly banned that.

If that's true then I don't think they'd have any problem using LRAD after being told not to.

yeah. It's easy to forget in the tragedy porn that stopping the beatings was part of the point. Boring from home is good.

Before I head out for the night, I just wanted to say I appreciate you revising your stance.  Many do not.

All he ever does is tweet stupid shiat.

The better question would be has he tweeted anything not stupid lately, that'd be actual news.

What the fark. Between that and hiding their movements with spotlights,

How are the police going to be accountable?

Will the courts accept the police reports as accurate when the police have made it impossible for witnesses to see hat's happening or record it?

How can we take the side of the police, when they are preventing the protesters from understanding the risk they are taking, or understanding what the police are even doing?

At this point are the police protecting anything at all? Anything? Or are they merely attacking the public?

How do we know what the protesters intend to do, if the police are going to those efforts to stop them from going about their business? Like the protesters might simply want to get their 10,000 steps in while doing some social justice activism (why not, eh?), but then the police showed up and blocked and blinded them - so of course the protesters are going to be snippy.

I've never been a K-pop fan but I gotta respect that.  That is amazing.

All those umbrellas.

It's obvious to anyone paying attention that the Weather Underground has teamed up with Antifa and BLM!

Logging off for the night, gonna keep Woke up until I pass out

One of these nights I'm gonna need to get more than 5 hours of sleep
