If those Daily Caller reporters would have just followed the officer's directions, and obey the law, they wouldn't have been arrested.

We can't have two sets of laws for two groups of people, especially when one group always follows the law and never asks for special treatment, right Tucker Carlson's newspaper?

Back when I was in HS in the early 80's I thought I would print up a press parking pass in the print shop and use it to park in downtown Seattle wherever the hell I pleased.

They shouldn't have been rioting if they didn't want to be arrested. Isn't that the line?

If you've been watching the livestreams you'd know that any press credentials are good enough to earn you a beating and a 48 hour stay in jail before being released on "No charges"

Sorry about your camera equipment, should have been more careful about it before it got dropped on the streets and we had to put it in the evidence locker. You can pick up your claims form at the front desk.

Here's the secret: a good chunk of right wingers despise law enforcement. They just know that a lot of cops can be goaded into supporting them on a basis of them both hating "thugs" and "looters" (wink wink). That support however only goes so far as to let them off the hook. The moment that a cop goes after them, "Back the Blue", "Support the Police", and "Blue Lives Matter" will turn into "Defund Those Paid Government Thugs" in a nanosecond.

Yes, a lot of police unions are responsible for the current state of law enforcement. But remember that they are still nothing more than hired goons who answer to their right wing pols.

You are lucky you didn't get towed. It's protocol to tow on sight if there's a fraudulent parking pass, you get the luxury of the parking fine, which is about the level of parking in a handicap stall with no placard as well as the bill for the towing of your vehicle (whatever that was in the 80's).

As an extra bonus, the tow guy has full rights to gain access to your vehicle to recover the fraudulent pass which is then entered into evidence.

Agreed. Why? Then they can play the righteous victim of "left-wing violence" to boost their revenue / recruitment. That's why I say you never, ever, start violence. However you stand ready, while being recorded / livestreamed from multiple angles, to defend yourself (or another) from right-wing violence. Given that Nazis are cowards, if you stick together they'll likely just stand there pissing their pants rather than start a fight. On the off chance they feel they can get away with it, and they start using violence, it is recorded / livestreamed from multiple angles with audio. So when you (and/or others) put them on the ground it's verifiable self-defense. Then you post that shiat all over the intarwebs with tags like "Nazis attack peaceful protesters!" "Republicans break the law to try and silence peaceful protesters!"
 
2020-09-24 1:22:29 PM  
It's actually strange that these people support the police. Normally they hate "The Man" and "The Government" in all its form and glory. Remember when it was part of a UN backed conspiracy to force all rural Americans into FEMA camps at now fenced schools across the country, using black helicopters? The local police were gonna be part of this. And those signs with the symbols on them were to help non English speaking military find their way to town and city centers to initiate a broad UN takeover of America.

It only works a little.  Now Nazis have taken to just committing the violence themselves and blaming BLM or Antifa anyway.

They love the police because the police kill and oppress the right people in their opinion. They just don't want to live under that same standard themselves, because they feel as white people that they don't deserve it.

Deucednuisance: fragMasterFlash: Did the cops take them to Burger King on the way to jail?

RIGHT?


So they sent a cop to go pick up Burger King and bring it back, rather than taking him there directly.  With the excuse, it seems, that he was hungry and there was no way to feed him otherwise because they weren't used to holding prisoners at the Shelby NC police station.

Weirdly unexplained is why they didn't transport him to one of the jails nearby, or send the cop to one of those jails for a meal for him instead of Burger King.

We can't control others, only ourselves. Documenting their violence and / or lawlessness is our only viable recourse.

I also fully back recording people (regardless of who they are) being a$$holes and breaking / burning shiat. That has no place at a peaceful protest, and should be documented inasmuch as possible with regards to safety, and that information given to news organizations from the protesters with a note: "We don't support this shiat. We recorded them for identification purposes. Can you give this to the cops and broadcast it so these people get arrested and other a$$holes stay way?" By making the news orgs feel important, they'll also likely net some positive press. "Protesters recorded these lawbreakers, sent us the video to help identify the criminals using the protests as cover for their illegal activities, and asked us to forward it to the police. We are asking the public for help identifying these people for law enforcement." Do the exact same thing Nazis trying to start fights, and pretty soon you'll start seeing some real trepidation from idiots like Spencer.

Always use your enemy's strengths against them, and in this case it's manipulating the press into your narrative.

These guys (everyone at the Daily Caller) deserve what shoulda happened to the KKK and the other hate groups back in the fifties.  Life in prison and neutering.   Their brand of hate needs to come to an end.

Other hate like hating Nazis and anti-vaxxers and anti-science morons, I got no problem with.  All they are about is killing people.  They are the worst.

If we'd done this back in the fifties, the descendants of those KKK morons and other hate groups wouldn't be murdering and killing today.  And Trump would be broke and sitting in some prison somewhere.

I 100% condemn the police attacking the free press, and for all that it is a burning dumpster fire, the Daily Caller counts as the press.

Still going to laugh about it though and reference leopard jokes.  Can't make bail until Friday?  That's a shame.
