The Third Man: Tracianne: This BTS thing is amazing.  BTS donates $1 million to BLM and now the BTS fans are doing a MatchAMillion in donations.

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


Me either but the what they've done this week with taking over certain hashtags and now this...amazing.  Last I checked they were already at $260K

I assume this it to try and show bottles coming over the fence or if that doesn't hope have someone next to the camera say "look out, he's got a weapon!"

OK so what was used on the protesters to make that red umbrella see through?

That's a clear plastic umbrella with a painted design on it :D

OK because it looks sort of like liquid spilled and it was making me wonder what the heck ate paint but not plastic

I hope someone who is more familiar with downtown can explain what the 'animal feed' the cops keep telling them not to throw is. I'm not familiar with that protest tactic

Apparently they are throwing animal feed of some sort over the fence while oinking at the police in Portland.

I suspect the lack of coverage by the Seattle stations has mostly to do with budgetary stuff. 10 days is some long days for coverage and similar to fark a lot of ad revenue has dried up.

DOCTORD000M: Was there ever a count on the size of the crowd at DC today?


Best I could find was from the Wall Street Journal:

D.C. authorities said Saturday's protests attracted the largest crowd yetas protesters amassed near the White House and at places such as the Lincoln Memorial. Many of the protesters streamed to the newly named Black Lives Matter Plaza, where the city has painted the phrase in giant yellow letters on the street.

I said well over a week ago cops would do better brining sandwiches. I stand by that.

Portland cops are probably about to start tossing flashbangs. They can't really pull back from announcing and "unlawful assembly"

Not that it excuses this piece of shiat of course, but this video is from two years ago, just to get facts straight.

The guy is no longer on the force, he left back in 2018 if you look up the news story. Problem is the two cops with him and the chief defended his actions. They saw nothing wrong in what he was doing.  The guy is also a past marine from what they said.

I actually think it was the sounds of the water bottles hitting the ground. But give it a few minutes. The PA announcements are like every 3 minutes.

One of the cops next to the PPB filmer (feed in watching) has a tear gas launcher. Pretty sure I saw the barrel pointed at the fence.

"Racism is so American that when they see me protesting it, they think I'm protesting America" - Anonymous sign seen at protest. Civil Unrest, Day 12

You've just implied that racism is endemic and pervasive in America, therefore your protest against racism must mean you hate what you consider to be at the core of the nation. Is hating its (according to you) fundamental nature distinguishable from hating the country itself?
