Discover is known for having tough requirements, maybe they violated one or two. Just saying without knowing more at this point

And back to Kenosha, Discover has blocked all transactions going to the Rittenhouse crowdfunding site. They claim it is purely operational, but considering nobody seems to be able to keep a funding site for him from being blocked, it's a little suspicious to me. If it is a "social" decision, I'm generally lazy about boycotts, but Discover would be an easy card for me to shred if I had one.  If this was political, I think they hurt themselves.

WaPo’s Margaret Sullivan is very pleased to inform you that only 7% of ‘racial justice protests’ get violent

93 percent of protests nonviolent. This is an important read from a sweeping report

Favorite comment.  There were also comments about how many police interactions are non-violent.

99% of gun owners are law abiding. Guess y’all can quit promoting gun control now.



Quote
ACLED, which monitors war zones and political upheaval around the world, launched the US Crisis Monitor report with Princeton University’s Bridging Divides Initiative. Using media accounts and other public information, the report identified 7,750 protests from May 26 through Aug. 22 that were linked to the Black Lives Matter movement. The protests took place in 2,400 locations across all 50 states and the District.
The group identified about 220 locations where the protests became “violent,” which authors of the report defined as demonstrators clashing with police or counterprotesters or causing property damage.
Still adds up to 220 locations where protests became violent.

Also: 220 locations.  Not 220 incidents.

So Portland is 1 location.

Interesting question from the comments:

Vice tracked this guy down but the cops haven't?

This isn't hard to understand.  People will talk with the press much more freely than they will with the police.

 it looks like Vice ratted him out, that Mike guy got lost a gun fight with L.E
 its really to bad, he had kids and its safe to say they are now angry bitter, plus I wanted to hear testimony and evidence as I suspect there was more to this
than an impulsive murder

Biden visited the parents of the violent criminal Jacob Blake.

Trump should head back to Kenosha and visit Blake's victims.

Gaige Grosskreutz, a convicted burglar who was illegally carrying a gun.
This appears to be bad info or this guy is blatantly lying.
Grosskreutz said he packed medical supplies in a small backpack to be ready to provide medical attention. He also said he decided to bring his licensed gun with him. He said he was concerned after seeing a call to arms on Facebook by a group called the Kenosha Guard, a self-styled militia group that was using the social media platform to encourage armed citizens to take to the streets.
"Everybody was there exercising their right to protest. And there were some people who were exercising their right to bear arms, including myself," he said.
Grosskreutz said he has had run-ins with police in his past and paid his debt. But he says he had every right to carry his firearm.
"I'm not a felon," he said. "I have my concealed carry, I've had it for years. That was my gun. My firearm. I had a legal right to possess it and to possess it concealed."

In most states, while you could still own a gun, this would get your CCW permit yanked:

I really wouldn't put it past him to be lying his ass off. They feel empowered to lie because they can count on the media to spread it instead of fact checking it.

The goon who killed the Trump supporter in Portland lied his ass off to Vice about it being self defense just before getting himself ventilated by the US Marshals, and the media just gormlessly repeated it, despite video evidence to the contrary.

Good article.  So he's still in Illinois?  What if IL refuses to extradite him; maybe because he's a minor? Cheesy

Yahoo attempts to paint Grosskreutz as the victim:

https://news.yahoo.com/shot-kenosha-then-received-threats-203834721.html

... conveniently glossing over the fact that he pulled his gun on Rittenhouse before being shot.

I was just gonna post similar. Some of the Eastern European countries are a good deal more pro-freedom than the current US population (present company excepted).
