Mississippi Church that defied stay-at-home orders burned to the ground in suspected arson




That was reported a few days ago, and we've barely talked about it. Imagine the coverage and controversy if it were one of the predominantly black churches that was staying open (of which there is at least one; presumably others).

Doesn't surprise me.  This thread has moved fast at times and I know I have skipped pages after being away for a day or two.

What I'm getting at is the way media is ignoring this story, compared to how they'd cover a racist church-burning. Or imagine how many weeks we'd spend talking about a church being burned down if it were the kind flying rainbow flags outside?

Another one of those stories that illustrate how we're all in this together. Here's another:

Well, in this case they only spray painted messages on the concrete.  If they had left a noose somewhere, that would be different.

I was reading that before the video started, the guy was, while not making a direct threat, was alluding that dog treats he had in his pocket were poison, and he was calling her dog to him.

She's still guilty of stupidity though. Best comment that I read was (paraphrased), "What happens when two entitled liberal elites collide."

I was seeing that on Twitter and elsewhere this morning.  I was wondering what the guy might have done that caused her to freak out (even if it wasn't serious).  The dog treats is odd, but her claiming poison and then claiming he is threatening her is going way off the deep end. 

Giving dog treats to other people's dogs would seem to be a good way to get them to use a leash.  More of an urban/suburban tactic.  Obviously some people will not take it well.

So last week or so, IA governor said anyone can go get tested now, don't need to play the online survey lottery to see if you are selected. Of course shortly after that a bunch of state run testing locations were shutdown. I'm really not one to buy in to conspiracy theories, but something smells like pig manure over this. Seems like someone doesn't want to the numbers of infected to skyrocket, especially since most of the businesses were closed were allowed to open back up last week, bars will be open on Thursday.

I'll allow that it is possible that your favorite governor may be playing politics with COVID - all the rest of the politicians certainly seem to be - but from what I've heard we hit the point some time ago where there was much more test availability than people wanting to get tested.

Over the weekend we had quite a few local news stories about folks wanting to get tested but no place to get tested, unless they drove a few hours and made an appointment in advance. Every county has a public health office, state could of kicked testing over to them in most of the counties that are not currently a hot spot.

That is a very panicked dog by the end.  I'm sure it was picking up on it's owners distress, but damn.  I routinely scoff at leash laws, as my dog is old, slow, under firm voice command, and won't get more than 10 feet from me anyway, but you have to know if you are being a scofflaw, sometime people call you out on it.

You have to wonder why she wouldn't just leave.

Heysoos Aitch, did the dog survive?  Looked like it was going down for the count in a couple of places.

Yeah, when aholes collide, but truth to be told, I look at a lot of videos nowadays as "prepared."  Oh, let me say it and get it over with: "FAKED."

And here we are believing stuff just because it's on video, much like people believe everything they read in the newspapers because it's in printed form.

This is my take, too. If you want to have a place to let your dog run free, PAY FOR IT. If you aren't willing to do that (as New York Liberals seem to think others should be paying for their preferences), then you're going to get called on it.

This guy looks like he's had to deal with entitled New Yorkers plenty and was prepared for it. I also note how the entitled Karen IMMEDIATELY said he was threatening her life. Someone that unhinged should not be allowed in public.

It might be faked, or they might both be jerks, but none of that would seem to justify the dog getting dragged around by its collar that way. It appears she had a leash, but was messing with her phone, when she might have been at least putting the leash on.

We clearly aren't the only people that think that.

From the article:
Quote
Abandoned Angels Cocker Spaniel Rescue, from which Amy adopted the dog a few years ago, is currently holding the dog after she ôvoluntarily surrenderedö it ôwhile the incident is being addressed,ö NBC reports.

Which brings up another point.  What kind of person turns their dog over to the crazy rescue folks over some social media flap?  She's gotta know she's not getting that pup back.  The real victim is that dog, who was rescued by a neurotic wad of entitlement, forced to live in an apartment in NYC, then ripped away from that home as well.  Someone from upstate with some yard space needs to adopt that poor thing.

I suspect, given all the media attention, people will be queuing up to adopt the poor thing.

If I'm out with my dog and I turn him loose in an empty but public area, and I get caught (it happens)  I say "Sorry!" and put the leash back on the dog and everybody goes about their day.  Isn't that what normal people do?  I feel bad for the dog here, and I haven't even watched the video.  I don't feel bad for "Karen" or the black man, they might even deserve each other.

One would think.

Observing human behaviour in response to this plague season is way more interesting to me than the whole virus/plague thing itself.  It keeps reminding me we really don't know what's going on in other peoples' heads.

When he said then I will do what I want and you won't like it and called the dog over I can see starting to worry. I don't care what color the person is.

I'll never be in that situation because one I'll never be in New York and two I'll never have a dog if they don't have room to run on my place.
