Yup, crack down harder. That'll fix it. Nothing bad ever happened from cracking down harder on the populace.

Makes sense.  It's one of the only places where there are actual protests for Trump to crack skulls on.

It's all been a blur of people (?) unironically and gleefully stating that if protesters damage property then secret police disappearing people is A-Okay and they Should've Complied (TM).

Or that protesters being in the road means anyone in a car can murder them scot free.

Lots of boots being licked, lots of fascists to root out.

Bouncy balls regularly whizzed over the fence at high speeds. The lights inside the courthouse have to be turned off for safety & the light from high-powered lasers bounced across the lobby almost all night. The fear is palpable.

Jesus farking Christ, I'm so fed up with this administration and their lack of respect for their constituents.


Coronavirus? "I don't accept any responsibility at all" and leaves it to the states.

They are trying to stick to ICE, Border Patrol, and military contractors brought in as deputized cops through the agency that posts security guards in federal buildings.  They only want the agencies or groups that are composed entirely of racist Nazi thugs.

It is also why they were using prison guards in DC, because you can use contractors through them as well.

I love this because it shows the hypocrisy coming from both far sides. The tweet is just as dishonest as Trump. It's an argument of lies.

Look, the feds are going overboard but it's a federal courthouse and if the local government can't or won't protect it they federal government can step in to protect federal property.  If the protests were smart they would leave the federal court building alone and force Trump to actually give an illegal order.

FTA:

DOJ and DHS personnel in the city have prompted outrage from protesters and local leaders for their use of force and arrest tactics and contravention of the 4th and 9th Amendments. But the Trump administration has repeatedly criticized local leadership for not coming down harder on demonstrators and contravening their 1st Amendment rights.

Oh man, BSAB'ing is *so* fun.

The protests were dying down, had the Feds not showed up it's possible they would have ceased already. The Courthouse wasn't under any more threat than it is now before they arrived, in fact, by any measure it was probably in much less danger, and all the actual damage to the building (ground level windows smashed) happened 2 months ago. More to the point, the Hatfield Courthouse is a literal fortress, and right now there's nothing within 30 feet of ground level that isn't steel reinforced concrete literally several feet thick, there's nothing within reach to hurt.

After DHS shot Donavan Labella right between the eyes for peacefully holding a speaker playing music across the street, and sending Chad Wolf in to openly piss off every elected representative and agitate the city itself, the protests were dramatically reinvigorated. Before the feds showed up and started putting people in the hospital, the rowdy late night crowd was about a hundred people each night, now it's over 2000.

They went out of their way to piss off this city, and after sticking their dick in a beehive are getting more than they bargained for.

I'm sure this has come up already but I'm guessing if trumps G.I. Joe squad went away the protestors would calm down a little. But I guess that's the whole point of staying, makes trump look like he is showing force and protecting federal property.
