US attorneys know there is only 6 months left in this shiat show.  Do want to be seen as SS for 6 more months or would you like a bit longer career than that.  Being fired from this administration would be a badge of honour.

It's really sad that my first thought was, "where is the hero tag?"

This is basic job competence and respect for our laws and fundamental American ideology. But I've gotten so used to the lack of either that I immediately consider someone who has both a hero.

And that's just farking sad.

You know, I've been thinking about this. Police need to be sue-able. And because of that, they need to carry malpractice insurance. That way, they can get fair representation in court AND, when the f the u up, their victims can receive just compensation. At some point, they do it too many times, and no one will insure them... Well, that's when it's time to look for another line of work.

What I find interesting here is that Trump is protecting government property with these unmarked federal agents and I will assume that most on the right are ok with or actual support it. While at the same time are still yammering on about the heavy handed and Jack booted responses of Obama to the malheur wildlife refuge. Comment c'est?

Campaign Biden to take up the elimination of qualified immunity (at least for police).

He won't. But, that would be a worthy cause.

Trump is indeed not intelligent or knowledgeable enough about the federal government he oversees to have drawn up the plan - but I guar-gawd-damn-tee you that he wanted extreme and "tough" action - whatever his underlings could scheme up. Remember: this is the guy who wanted a moat with alligators at the Southern Border - he's all about cruelty and abuse.

Out of curiosity, does this disconnect break apart with different agencies. Like they are ok with ICE and DHS but are against the FBI and the ATF?

These days, yeah - ICE and DHS target "the right people". FBI and the ATF have become the Scooby Doo Kids in the minds of some Americans these days - just a buncha meddling so-and-sos

So more than likely these units in Portland area mash-up of US Marshals as well as BORTAC (basically the border patrol SWAT). Marshals are staying that these folks aren't in there custody so that would lead us to believe they are being handed to border patrol for detention. The thing is, when is BP custody you do no meet the legal requirements for "detainment" and are not privy to legal representation and can be held indefinitely. You also will not show up on any online registers where family and friends and locate where you are in Federal custody. You can literally be disappeared and have your constitutional rights suspended. Sleep tight; and don't think they won't be using these units during the election, because I guarantee they will.

Hear the dog whistle?
Slavery was fun
Give slave catchers badges
And give them a gun

Call them the law
but take away rights
keep the black and the poor
Away from rich whites

Poors are revolting
build a new jail
Incomes are plunging
While stocks never fail

We can take it all back
while our freedom still lasts
because every new day
It becomes more of our past
