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

Violence erupts after officer-involved shooting

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. ...

Ironic, given that the mother of the man wounded on the train asked for no violence.

I wonder how many of the instigators are from "out of town".

This might be the only time you read this from me, but I truly believe that given the risks for violence here, both sides should legally have smoke a doobie or two before protesting.

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.

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.  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).

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.

On that note:
One dead, 19 injured after car plows into protesters during clashes at 'Unite the Right' rally.

Mainstream is billing this as a white supremacist march.

I would say the swastikas prevalent among the marchers made that abundantly clear, not any mainstream media bias.

Certainly not in my house, unless they want to see the hollow end of a shotgun up close and personal.

I hope they're not welcome in any of the houses of the people on this forum.
