Milwaukee update with lots of details, from a local paper:

Violence erupts after officer-involved shooting (http://www.jsonline.com/story/news/crime/2016/08/13/report-1-dead-officer-involved-shooting/88689152/)

Quote
...City police officials said two officers stopped two suspects in a car about 3:30 p.m. The suspects then took off on foot. During the pursuit, a six-year veteran of the department shot and killed a 23-year-old Milwaukee resident, who was carrying a semiautomatic handgun, police said. ...

The shooting occurred about one block northwest of the scene of a Friday evening homicide, and about four blocks west of a Saturday morning double homicide. Five people died in shooting-related homicides during a nine-hour stretch in the city on Friday night and Saturday morning. ...

According to a list of BLM demands, these young black men committed no crime, even if they did.
One of the demands is the decriminalization of black youth.
Put another way, a young black person by the very nature of the demand cannot commit a crime.
So the police officer in question committed a crime by shooting an innocent black man.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office told KGW's Mike Benner the man walked into the restaurant, located at 12101 Southeast 82nd Avenue, at about 9 p.m., sat down, threw gasoline on the customer, then lit the victim on fire with a book of matches.

There's a fair possibility of battling demonstrations in Portland Oregon today.

http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2017/06/portland_weekend_protests_have.html

Quote
...On Sunday, four separate demonstrations – either simultaneously or within a few hours of each other – are planned within blocks near City Hall and adjacent parks.


    A pro-Trump free speech rally is expected to draw about 400 protesters Sunday, according to RSVPs on social media. The rally is scheduled from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Terry Schrunk Plaza.

    More than 1,000 people indicated on Facebook they plan to attend a counter-protest to the Trump rally. It is organized by more than 30 immigrant rights, mental health and religious groups and is scheduled from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Portland City Hall.

    About 400 said they were going to another counter-protest organized by local anti-fascist groups, scheduled from noon to 4 p.m. at Chapman Square.

    About 70 said they were going to a gathering planned by labor groups also opposing the pro-Trump rally, scheduled from 12:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Terry Schrunk Plaza. ...

To hell with both factions...

Bad people doing bad things is pretty freaking normal in society, albeit unfortunate.  In this case a degenerate mouth breather started verbally abusing and threatening two young women in public.  A liberal, a conservative and a student of some stripe intervened and it turned into a fight that unfortunately resulted in the death of two of them.  But the point is that two sides of the debate came together to defend innocent citizens and unfortunately, gave the last full measure of devotion to a better society.  I take heart from that.  Underneath the sturm und drang, the society that we thought was pretty decent all things considered is still there. 

That extremists of multiple stripes are coming in ready to do violence for their particular pet issues is freaking disgusting.

The Portland protest yesterday? Out of thousands of protestors, local news said it was mostly peaceful, and that 14 people were arrested. No major injuries.

It was not a protest for the two men killed on the commuter train (which I am guessing was MAX), but a pro-trump and a free speech protest.other groups also showed up.Pro-Trump and anti-Trump demonstrators separated by caution tape.

Good to hear.

Post by: mountainmoma on June 05, 2017, 07:43:25 PM
The arrests were for Antifa people who were throwing bricks and stuff at Police. The regular protesters on both sides were peaceful.     

The Oregonian uploaded footage of police deploying flash-bangs and tear gas in order to disperse black-masked individuals protesting in a public park.

I have noticed this from previous "events" news; The Portland police seem to be under instructions to do their job, as they did this past weekend. Nothing like local here ( ie., Berkeley, San Francisco) who let violence happen. The Portland police kept the groups seperate, and they used minimal needed force ( flashbangs, tear gas) to disarm and disperse the AntiFa group who showed up to be violent.

Great Job Portland PD !

A "March Against Sharia", organized by a group called ACT for America, is scheculed to occur mid-day Saturday June 10th in many cities.  The complete list of locations is on their website (http://www.actforamerica.org/rally).  Here's a brief list of cities:

Arizona: Phoenix
California: Oceanside, Roseville, San Bernardino, Santa Clara
Colorado: Denver
Connecticut: Waterbury
Florida: Jacksonville, Orlando
Georgia: Atlanta
Illinois: Chicago
Indiana: Indianapolis
Kansas: Wichita
Massachusetts: Boston
Michigan: Lansing, Southfield
Minnesota: St. Paul
Missouri: St. Charles, Kansas City
New York: New York City, Syracuse
North Carolina: Raleigh
Pennsylvania: Harrisburg
Texas: Austin, Dallas, Houston
Virginia: Virginia Beach
Washington: Seattle

In addition, a similar rally is being held in Batesville, Arkansas, but ACT for America has disassociated itself from this event because it's being organized by white supremacists.  ACT for America claims to have zero tolerance of racial or religious bigotry.

Security at the events will be assisted by volunteers from  Oath Keepers, Bikers for Trump, Two Million Bikers, American Civil Defense, various Three Percenter organizations, The Proud Boys, and other patriotic groups (according to this Oath Keepers post (https://www.oathkeepers.org/call-action-help-defend-free-speech-june-10-act-america-march-sharia-events-nationwide/)).

There is an obvious potential for confrontations and violence to occur at any of these events, so please be careful.

So far, it sounds like the anti-Sharia crowds have numbered around 20 to 100, the counter-protesters have been slightly more numerous, and confrontations have been limited to noise and some shoving matches.

Charlottesville, Virginia
White nationalists and counterprotesters are expected to flood downtown Charlottesville Saturday as the Virginia city braces for the "Unite the Right" rally. By noon, thousands are expected to gather in Emancipation Park, where barricades have been placed in proximity to the statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Heads up:
White nationalists, neo-Nazis and other extremist groups plan to hold a "white lives matter" rally at Texas A&M on September 11. Richard Spencer, the white supremacist who helped found the so-called alt-right movement, will speak at the event, according to the Battalion, Texas A&M's student newspaper.

20,000+ protesters heading to Boston, Massachusetts today.Boston authorities, determined to avoid a Charlottesville-type confrontation Saturday between thousands of conservative activists and counter-protesters, said they would shut down the "Free Speech Rally" on Boston Common at the first sign of trouble.

Black-clad anarchists storm Berkeley rally, assaulting 4 (http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/nationworld/ct-berkeley-protests-20170827-story.html)

Quote
...The group of more than 100 hooded protesters, with shields emblazoned with the words "no hate" and waving a flag identifying themselves as anarchist, busted through police lines, avoiding security checks by officers to take away possible weapons. Then the anarchists blended in with a crowd of 2,000 largely peaceful protesters who turned up to demonstrate in a "Rally Against Hate" opposed to a much smaller gathering of right-wing protesters.

Among those assaulted by the anarchists was Joey Gibson, the leader of the Patriot Prayer group, who canceled a rally Friday and was prevented from holding a news conference on Saturday when authorities closed off the public square Gibson planned to use. ...

After the anarchists spotted Gibson at the Berkeley park, they pepper-sprayed him and chased him out of it as he backed away with his hands held in the air, accompanied by a masked man wearing football shoulder pads. Gibson and the man went behind a line of police wearing riot gear, who set off a smoke bomb to drive away the anarchists.

Earlier in the day, another group of left-wing demonstrators dressed in black attacked at least three men in the park, kicking and punching them until the assaults were stopped by police. Police also used a smoke grenade to stop one scuffle. ...

Considering both sides at most of these events are convinced that the police were favoring theit opponents and the frequently limited view I have that is shaken days or weeks later when additional video is released, I am reluctant to characterize the security response to much of it. I know damn well there are some portion of scum bags on both sides of the actual riots.

What is interesting is that the heavy hitter mainstream media has turned hard against antifa.  Mr. Bill posted that article from the Chicago Trib yesterday, and now this morning there's this from the Washington Post:
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2017/08/28/black-clad-antifa-attack-right-wing-demonstrators-in-berkeley/?utm_term=.f573d1e39e3d (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2017/08/28/black-clad-antifa-attack-right-wing-demonstrators-in-berkeley/?utm_term=.f573d1e39e3d)

It feels as if something behind the scenes has changed, when the reliably friendly-to-the-left MSM has quit pushing propaganda for a nominally leftist group.  Has the repeated violence woken up the MSM and now they're doing straight-up reporting?  I am skeptical that that's happened, but am at a loss to come up with any more plausible explanation.

What I'd like to believe is that the media are starting to distinguish violent protestors from non-violent, on both sides.

If you're more cynical, you could say that the leftist press is throwing the violent antifas under the bus so that they won't make the mainstream left look bad.

Just like the conservatives are throwing the Alt-Right under the bus for political expediency?  ;)

Some people belong under the bus. 

I may never agree with the left on about 95% of their ideas, but I would be perfectly happy to add "condemning the violent left" to "Nazis 'r bad m'kay?" categorized under that 5% we can agree on.

Heads up in Minneapolis. If you're traveling in or around the city beware that there are people putting up monuments to honor Justine Damond, an Australian tourist killed by a Somali police officer. Unfortunately, these people tend to be "white nationalists".

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2017/12/26/white-nationalists-built-a-memorial-for-the-white-woman-fatally-shot-by-a-somali-cop/?utm_term=.ce73f91f37d7

Add on that our left wing Antifa types are out in the streets tearing down said memorials so we quite literally have roaming gangs of partizans in the streets possibly looking for trouble.

If you are planning to attend the Superbowl here in a month (please don't) be aware that on top of these tensions we have a local tradition of BLM shutting down freeways and the Mall of America (don't go it sucks).

If none of that scares you there is the very real problem that Minneapolis police don't enjoy the support of the locals. The city police are the only ones in the state to embrace civil forfeiture and are legend for not getting out of the car.

I can't believe that toxic race politics are wrecking a place known for being "nice". The old racist joke up here was that the Sons of Norway were going to be retitled The Sons of Bitches to let the Swedes in. But if you're looking to make a statement this is the "take a knee" Superbowl in a city not known for tourism and certainly not good in winter.
