The uniforms have "POLICE" patches on them, so if it is Europe, probably the U.K.

(and yes, the Left's outrage machine would be in overdrive howling about police brutality if it occurred here)


IIRC it's from France, Paris protests a while back to be exact
Their uniforms say POLICE on them as well, police is actually a French word

He is literally a gun-grabber.

Also lucky that all he got was a punch in the face.

The Seattle (at this point I'm just lumping in Seattle stuff with Portland stuff) police chief's neighbors defended their neighborhood with guns. Kinda like the STL couple, except these homeowners appear to be on the neighborhood's public street. Guess we'll see if the DA there attempts to press charges. The neighbors apparently have the support of the police chief.

And in LA, someone is being charged for pointing a gun at protestors that were on his porch. We might need a discrete thread on people defending their homes and which of them are being charged for doing so.

This happened about 15 miles south of me. Prior to this, I did not know that Carmen Best and her husband lived up here.  I thought they lived in Seattle.  Neighbors used their vehicles to prevent the protestors from getting close to the Chief's home.  Both sides were armed but nothing untoward happened.  There is no way in heck the neighbors will be charged with anything.

From Millcreek's link:

Quote
A crowd of about 200 persons, mostly white men and women in their twenties, were dressed in black with masks and black hoods and carried signs that read “Black Lives Matter.” Black Lives Matter protestors shouted profanity and insults at neighbors, took license plate information on vehicles, took pictures of homes, and asked little kids who lived in the neighborhood what schools they attended. 

That is absolute intimidation. If they start targeting people's kids, they are going to end up with bullet holes. A few other comments from the link made it sound like they were following a manual.

Something tells me those charges will disappear after an appropriate amount of time has passed.

Your question is phrased such it implies a conspiracy.   I don't know if it is or not, but at the rate things are going it seems we're heading for one regardless of it being planned or not.   sad

If they wanted to instigate a civil war/race war what do you suppose they would do differently?

I think part of it is simply democrat politicians thinking they need to play to the mob.  

The other part of me says if they get rid of police, there will be multiple other groups set up to do the same thing only worse with less accountability.

The brief look at the road sign looks like France, who also spell it "Police", which is likely where English got that word.

Stop posting pictures of rioters!!!

Interesting that she uses the word "riot" instead of "protest".

If she is concerned about rioters getting arrested, that means someone is actually arresting enough of them to get noticed.  Good.

As an aside, this article is the second time I saw the mention of "industrial lasers". Evidence needed, but it appears these guys are not using classroom laser pointers (which can also damage vision). I read another article that stated over 200 police nationwide have reported eye injury and loss of sight (none permanent yet, I think) from laser attacks.

I've seen nothing about LE going after these people for lasers, and this story seems to indicate that the rioters are using them on just about anybody that's not part of the riots. There should be some VERY serious charges and mandatory prison time for this crap. Maybe it's just me, but I would rather lose a couple of legs and an arm than lose my eyesight.

According to that article they've started aiming lasers at random drivers in addition to the cops.

Not only is that likely to cause more rioter injuries as people go all hind-brain after they've been blinded, but there are going to be some folks that treat that the same as having an AK pointed at them.

I've run across a few articles recently that mentioned three federal officers may have permanently damaged eyesight from lasers used against them by the Portland rioters.
A rioter trying to blind someone with a laser is getting themselves into the realm of causing serious bodily harm.  Eventually, some of these idiots are going to get shot by people exercising their right to self defense.

It is attempted maiming and for drivers in motion it rises to attempted vehicular homicide.

Laser wielders absolutely should be shot in self defense.

Apparently that driver has been detained by the cops.  There are claims by the rioters that he fired shots at them.  The driver is cooperating with the investigation.

Under Texas law, I think that would definitely fall under "serious bodily injury" and justify use of deadly force.
