Not quite.

Dead body found in a burned out pawn shop.

It's hilarious that they think he instigated all or even any of the violence. It's as if they think no one was watching it unfold live. You'd have to be utterly brain dead to buy this shit.


Well, in most cases brain death is brought on by a progressive disease.

There's that good faith, snark-free, objective discourse you always deliver!

that fire was May 28th... do they have evidence that Marky Poppins did it?

it just looks like they found a white supremacist weirdo smashing windows at an autozone

and twitter is hailing it as the 5th reich

**Not nearly Dime level posting, but the event in question happened nearly 6 months ago

This seems even more justifiable than the Brooks shooting. Guy high on meth whose accomplice submitted without issue, fighting officers who had already called for medical backup just in case, put an officer in a chokehold, tried to pull a knife, was strong enough it took multiple officers to restrain him after they requested he submit to arrest 40 times and used a taser multiple times. Gotta wonder if this article is exists to reignite protests or provide rationalization to the ongoing riots.

The risky thing this shows is that now every black person under arrest can scream “I can’t breathe” and the cops have to decide do they let them go or risk becoming the next Chauvin via Twitter/MSM if it’s true.

It's an old case, but a new release of video and internal investigation (with an unknown number of officers put on paid-leave).

It's not that at all.

Dime has been posting old stories/videos, that have nothing new about them, and somewhat distracting the conversation.

All well intentioned, I'm sure, just needless.

Right. I'm on your team. I was just providing yet another point in your favor.

Oh for sure.

Anyways, here’s a summary of the day spent eradicating all semblance of Seattle law and order
Quote:
On Friday, council members for the first time offered specific proposals and timelines for cutting the department’s budget and creating alternative systems to prevent violence and provide community safety. They also urged Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best to prioritize responding to violent crimes and to deprioritize calls that could disproportionally impact communities of color.

Only one council member, Kshama Sawant, proposed immediate and blunt cuts that could slash close to 50% of the department’s remaining 2020 budget. The rest offered proposals for this year that would slice 100 full-time equivalent positions — out of 1,428 fully trained, probationary and recruited officers — from the department through layoffs and attrition, while shuffling some police functions into other city departments.

“There are, no doubt, roadblocks to us being able to do that 50%,” Councilmember Tammy Morales said in an interview Friday, as the council began to look at specific proposals for cutting the police budget. “But what we’re presenting today is the downpayment…. We do plan to continue this work through the next six to nine months, really understanding what would a community safety department system look like that doesn’t center police but really is about violence prevention and safety.”

I did include that one, and text accompanying it explaining the misleading headline. Not sure what happened there
