That Aurora shooter watched one too many action movies, and holy crap, the "know what's beyond your target" went right out the window, at least from the angle of the video. Looks like he was shooting from the worst possible angle given direction and speed of the vehicle. I often don't take shots at birds with my shotgun at those angles/speeds.

I'm not sure I dig the Aurora PD statement. Makes it sound like the jeep driver was at fault.

It didn't look like he hit anyone and the report said no one has come forward with injuries from being hit.  

I liked this quote from the link.

Have been saying this for weeks - the longer police/govt don't get this in hand and restore order, the more citizens (on both sides) are going to start taking matters into their own hands.

Get. These. F@#$ing. People. Off. The. Road.

Stop allowing/enabling this, ffs.

This was an interstate highway.  There may have been no other way around this protest except through.  I also didn't see any mention of how long they were blocking traffic.

No, I agree - I think he was just trying to get through their roadblock on an Interstate. It's just a couple of the Aurora PD statements I read made it sound like he was aiming at protestors, which I do not for a second believe he was doing.

Orders? ORDERS?
*expletive deleted*ck the UN.



Quote
The UN delivered a formal stand down order to the Trump administration, warning that there would be "consequences" if Federal officers continued enforcing Federal law…

Trump is on a roll, he just shut down a Chinese consulate/spy ring safe house in Houston. Sounds like he needs to kick the UN the *expletive deleted*ck out of the US.

That was my first thought, though I'd like to see a couple more sources to see if they actually said they "order". If true, yeah, *expletive deleted*ck them and the Prius they rode in on. Also, if true, Trump should yank around a half billion dollars of UN funding as punishment.

I don't care how the U.N. said it; it's ugly. Talk about foreign meddling in an election...

The UN better have some statements condemning CHAZ/CHOP. No, forget that. What have they said about the anti-white movement afoot in the U.S., including BLM and other so-called "anti-racists"?

Quote
Spokesperson Elizabeth Throssell was answering a reporter’s question about the US authorities deploying federal security officers to various cities to quell demonstrations against racial injustice, sparked by the death of George Floyd, an unarmed African American man, while in police custody in Minneapolis on 25 May.

“Peaceful demonstrations that have been taking place in cities in the US, such as Portland, really must be able to continue without those participating in them - and also, the people reporting on them, the journalists - risking arbitrary arrest or detention, being subject to unnecessary, disproportionate or discriminatory use of force, or suffering other violations of their rights”, said Ms. Throssell.
Officers must be identified

Regarding reports about unidentified police officers detaining protestors, she said “that is a worry because it may place those detained outside the protection of the law, and may give rise to arbitrary detention and other human rights violations.”

Ms. Throssell said federal and local security forces must be properly and clearly identified. They also should use force only when necessary and in accordance with international standards.

“Also, it is important that any victims of unnecessary or excessive use of force do have the right to remedy, and there should be, as we often say, prompt, independent, impartial and transparent investigations into any allegations of human rights violations, and that should ensure that those responsible are held accountable”, she added.

Not much else to say.  She gets all her news from CNN and that sort and doesn't question it.

Unfortunately, the foreigners that I know get their news either directly from US media like CNN, or from foreign news outlets that directly transmit AP sources. My Japanese colleagues watch CNN to practice their English. It's even worse than domestic spin, because a lot of people here in the states either know something about what is actually happening, or they understand when and how far to believe the news. But those overseas don't, so they often take what they see at face value.

The converse situation also exists, sometimes they see through cultural aspects that are taken at face value in America. I find this happens more often on social issues like feminist, gay, and sometimes race issues that are FU in America but FU along different lines overseas.

They are neither demonstrations, nor are they about "racial injustice."

Peaceful demonstrations? Yeah, those aren't even allowed right now. In the age of Covid, only lefty race riots are permitted, and that's what you're calling peaceful demonstrations. Liar.
