It's 11:30 in the morning.
So it begins...
 
2020-06-20 12:33:56 PM  
She was coming right for them!

It's like the police have no idea what cameras do

When the police act as bouncers for a Klan rally.

I was watching that and came here to post it as well.  There is no reason she should have been arrested.  She has a ticket, she was sitting peacefully.

They say she was "trespassing".  What bullshiat!
 
2020-06-20 12:35:42 PM  
We're gonna need a live thread for this today, I think :)
 
2020-06-20 12:40:19 PM  
Probably arrested her for her own safety. At best she would probably suffer some bodily harm irate trumpers and some might kill her.
 
2020-06-20 12:41:40 PM  
Why are you just sitting there being peaceful and quiet?  You trying to create a scene?  White kind of white person pretends to be black in public?  Stop "resisting" or the beating will continue!!!

They're cops.  What do you expect - that they'll be reasonable?

What part of "that's her choice" is against the law? If there's an arresting it should be after she's been attacked. You don't arrest innocent people for their own sake.

Enforcers of the presidential threat against the first amendment.
 
2020-06-20 12:45:59 PM  
If she had actually entered the stadium, her health would be at risk from Trumpers. So, really, the cops are doing her a favor by arresting her now.
 
2020-06-20 12:46:38 PM  
The police don't get that all they have been doing is going to end very badly for them.

Oh my god. What is her "crime'?
 
2020-06-20 12:49:53 PM  
She has a problem with the extrajudicial murder of black people.  She's one of them antifa terrorists.
 
2020-06-20 12:50:19 PM  
I really thought I would make it to lunch before Tulsa began blatantly p!ssing on law and decency. 
I am a sweet summer child, I guess.

ACLU lawsuit in 3... 2... Wait, we're receiving an update. We didn't need to finish the countdown.

Came here to say this. See, they DO 'serve and protect'!

That's true.  She probably would have eventually been hurt.  Perhaps being arrested even allowed her to make her point without being hurt but they still had no right to do that.

She had a f$cking ticket.
 
2020-06-20 12:52:45 PM  
AMERICA! F*CK YEAH!
 
2020-06-20 12:52:47 PM  
Pretty sure if she was sitting down in Buffalo, NY, the cops would have bulldozed her and split her head open.
 
2020-06-20 12:53:13 PM  
Trump saw her through the window and ran for the bunker.

I can't even bother to read the handful of comments in this thread. I need to get off the internet.
 
2020-06-20 12:59:17 PM  
Trespassing at a public event for which she had tickets. Good luck trying to make that one stick, Tulsa PD.

so many camera men.
 
2020-06-20 1:08:21 PM  
So...she was in line to attend the rally wearing an I can't breathe shirt and the police pulled her out of line and asked her to leave. She refuses and they arrest her for trespassing? Um...that's going to be one hell of a lawsuit.
 
2020-06-20 1:10:51 PM  
I suppose the PD will make the argument that they're keeping the peace by removing a potential focus of trumpers' rage, a provocateur. (Provocateuse?)

It's a dumb argument, but it's an argument I guess
 
2020-06-20 1:14:11 PM  
Trespassing, huh? I'm surprised they didn't use the more generic and vague "disorderly conduct". Isn't that what they usually use when they don't have an actual crime but still want to arrest someone?
 
2020-06-20 1:15:01 PM  

oldernell: Probably arrested her for her own safety. At best she would probably suffer some bodily harm irate trumpers and some might kill her.


If they use that as an argument, then it's obvious who the cops think about the MAGAt. Why can"t MAGAt just ignore her?
 
2020-06-20 1:16:03 PM  
That'll teach her for wanting to participate in political discourse at a political rally.

She's going to own that PD
 
2020-06-20 1:16:32 PM  
I thought Trump welcomed everyone. Are they trying to say Trump voters cannot support police reform?

ltnor: The police don't get believe that all they have been doing is going to end very badly for them.


It's never gone badly before.  And if it does, it'll only be temporary, because they'll refuse to help in emergencies to make the point that they should be allowed to do whatever the f*ck they want, in exchange for their "protection" racket for white people.

Already, they're winning the PR war, making "Defund the Police" the narrative rather than "Fund social services and stop asking police to do that".  Next up, in the next budget cycles of their funding governments, they'll scream and fight like hell against any movement of money out of their budget, AND argue that even the liberals agree that they are asked to do stuff that's not their job, so they need that taken away.  But they keep the money.  They will intimidate lawmakers, use scare tactics on the public, administer beatings and do anything else they want, to get what they want.

The police unions are very experienced at the administrative side.  The cops are very experienced at the violent side.  Don't think they won't use everything in their arsenal to protect the status quo.

I posted this in the other thread, but I'll post it here. According to MSNBC a little while ago, she was actually in line peacefully waiting to get in. Someone noticed her shirt, and she was then pulled out and asked to leave. THAT is when she sat down and said she wouldn't go as she had tickets.

They can't even manage to turn them on half the time.

You know how Trumpers are with women making choices for themselves, right?

She's from f$cking Tulsa.  She has more right to be there than most of them.

They don't care.  They had her taken away.  Trump won't have his wittle feewings hurt.

Person on twitter nailed it in the reply: "They're only 1st amendment supporters when the speech is in agreement."

In that case they should arrest all the ticket holders, going into that arena with 19000 people during a pandemic is not safe.
 
2020-06-20 1:24:42 PM  
They need a large group of protesters to enter the event and then start chanting Black Lives Matter. Solo protesters won't be enough, IMHO.
 
2020-06-20 1:25:15 PM  
She's ANTIFA and was only there to cause trouble. It's called "proactive policing" people!!


/this post was sarcasm
//I have to explain that because the farky army is pretty dumb
///ZOMG BOOT LICKER!
 
2020-06-20 1:26:13 PM  
Just for that the Police will allow MAGA to burn down some Black owned businesses.
 
2020-06-20 1:26:34 PM  
She said her name is "Sheila"-obviously she's a terrorist from the Antipodes.
 
2020-06-20 1:26:47 PM  
From the comments: "They're only 1st amendment supporters when the speech is in agreement.". Some of us have been saying this for a long time. Police shouldn't be able to 'pick a side' while working, they should do what's right but, we've seen that isn't the case all across the nation. We have to vote trump's regime out and get this country back on the right track. Because right now, we are freefalling into a Dictatorship.
