Electing Democratic governors (and legislatures) can cause crazy shiat to happen.  Why I hear they elected a Democratic governor in KY and they got healthcare.

Another victory for Venezuela-style socialism.

Yes, because only rich white Americans deserve healthcare. Everyone else needs to go off and die, somewhere else

Hopefully they didn't leave loopholes that are going to be constantly abused.

That's not true at all. Some people only need to not come here and die.

You should try finding old blackface pictures of more governors. It apparently leads to results.

Yeah, we have to announce ourselves now; we can't just barge in and shoot everyone any more.

Giving people healthcrae isn't stigginit, and so therefore bad, maybe.

To clarify, no-knock warrants were ended for drug warrants. They can still burst in unannounced for other types.

Democrats get shiat done.

I have been repeatedly and credibly advised on multiple message boards that any police violence and misconduct only occurs in Democrat cities run by Democrats and it's all their fault. So this must be fake news.

The same people also claim that police violence and misconduct doesn't actually exist because if the cops kill anyone they obviously were resisting and deserved it.  So clearly there's no need to ban no knock warrants anyway.

Virginia has been killing it.   Sweeping common sense gun reform including limiting handgun purchases to one a month, allowing authorities to take away guns from those deemed at risk to harm others or themselves, require reporting of lost or stolen guns, allow gun bans in public spaces, and increase the ability to regulate storage and possession to local authorities.   And increase penalties for child endangerment and those with protective orders violating gun bans.

They've decriminalized marijuana, made LGGTQ a protected class, gotten rid of Lee-Jackson day, allowed local authorities to determine their own monuments, made election day a holiday, banned conversion therapy, and gotten rid of restrictive abortion laws.

They've also put into place an insulin price cap.

Damn proud of my state finally getting it's shiat together.

My staunchly republican grandfather lived in Wytheville.  Sadly he died last year at the ripe old age of 100, but even he had had enough of Trump's sh*t and was planning, for the 1st time in his life, to vote D.

His brother and his niece, OTOH, are Floridiot Trumpers who, had they not been after his money, would have disowned him for the about-face.  The breaking point came when he pointed out to his brother that they were both the original anti-fascists and took a really unpleasant holiday in Europe over 70 years ago to fight fascists, so he couldn't understand why his brother was now a fascist himself.  Ever tried to stop a nonagenarian punch a  centenarian?  It's pretty easy.

Anyway, I used a point I gleaned from Fark to effect change in a radical Trumper.

So basically what youu are saying is that your state is officially on Trump's shiatlist, and are royally farked if he gets re-elected.

That's probably a good thing. The only given reason to do is the destruction of evidence. Anyone assumed well armed, you're better off waiting things out after securing the area, that has been shown to work every time. With destruction of evidence, shut the water/power off and that makes it a lot harder short of setting the place on fire. Any major players have everything in place anyway and security that would defeat a no knock.

No-knock warrants shouldn't end entirely.

the problem is, they're often NOT used on the RIGHT WING TERRORISTS who are the greatest threat in this country, including a good percentage of our nation's police force. Instead, they're used as excuses to kill black people. Men, women, AND children.

Well yeah, who would you want to bust in on at 3am? The guy with homemade claymores and illegal full auto weapons or the guy that was maybe seen with a hi-point 9mm, $600 and a bag of weed on an instagram post, but it may have all been fake props. woopsie. I'd want to go home at night too.

Let's be realistic here, it's NOVA and the couple of big cities dragging the rest of the shiatpile into the 20th century. Because between DC and Richmond, the derp still be strong.

So the drug dealer avoids getting caught but loses his stash.  Instead of innocent people being killed.  I'm OK with this.
