Louisville Agrees To $12 Million Settlement In Breonna Taylor Case

With the $12 Million Dollar pay-out will they now stay out of the streets in Louisville, KY ?

How come this seems like blackmail.
I fear we have set a bad precedent.


The concept of Danegeld is hardly new. Kipling had a few salient things to say about it: "once you have paid him the Danegeld/ You never get rid of the Dane."

"We never pay any-one Dane-geld,
   No matter how trifling the cost;
For the end of that game is oppression and shame,
   And the nation that plays it is lost!"

If anything, I think this will embolden those who feel that political violence is their only course of action. They've seen that they can attack the police, be lionized for it, and now get paid as well.

Lancaster protesters held on whopping $1 million bail each after alleged riots

https://www.foxnews.com/us/lan...s-bail-alleged-riots

A Pennsylvania judge threw the book at several protesters – setting their bail at $1 million each – for allegedly rioting in the wake of the police shooting of a knife-wielding Lancaster man.

Lancaster police nabbed a dozen people and one juvenile for staging the riots around 3 a.m. Monday in clashes that culminated in police deploying tear gas at the crowd.

Finally there's a magistrate who's willing to recognize the idiocy of those who participate in rioting, and start holding up examples. Kenosha, WI are you watching?


Not sure that is going to help, as skins2881 posted a couple of pages ago that dead-knife-guy was released on $1M bail that was then dropped -

“Lancaster knife welding suspect out on one million dollar bond from last stabbing (four people), for unknown reasons, bond was dropped and he was facing trial next month.“

Unfortunately, with so much funding BLM and various other public defenders organizations are receiving, bonding out at $1m is just a drop in the bucket. Do the people continue their wayward ways while out on their own recognizance...it's not their money, what do they care.

Eh, wait until Anqueefa decides that taking casualties doesn't make them losers, it means they've bought tickets in the ghetto lottery. Trials tie up the system, awards disrupt the system, and anything left over from the award can go straight into a fund subsidizing more of the same.

What they don't know yet is that the lawyers who handle all that crap for them are eventually going to just see their 'comrades' as cows in the dairy. When people are making good steady money on the basis of a certain percentage of their clients' being crash test dummies, they ain't especially likely to counsel wisdom. I would guess that goes double when the lawyers' public position is that they're doing what they're doing "for the revolution".

Meanwhile, back in the kitchen, U.S. Senators Ed Markey (MA) and Bernie Sanders (MARS) seem to be pushing for FEDERAL legislation to ban tear gas, rubber and plastic bullets, and bean bag rounds on the theory that the police "routinely" attack protestors with "brute force".
http://twitter.com/SenMarkey/s.../1305513214663426049

Call me crazy, but doesn't "brute force" on a mass scale generally have to get signed off on before it happens? I'm pretty sure that just deploying those things makes civil liability a live issue for the department or agency.

The city will still burn once it comes out in the AG report.

The timing, and amount, of this settlement probably isn’t a coincidence.

Isn't this par for the course? Whether it's about this, covid, Trump, etc. It's to the point you can't believe anything unless you've seen it yourself or researched the crap out of it.

The craziness isn't going to stop until the politicians, DA's, and others that are aiding and abetting the rioters feel some heat for their complicity. When they themselves are in the cross hairs, so to speak, they will throw Anqueefa under the bus.

Only one officer will be indicted, and that is because he had “negligent disregard for life” as he fired into the house from the outside, while his fellow officers were inside and he didn’t have a clear line of sight at any target.

The other two officers will not be indicted as their actions will be deemed reasonable. It’ll be interesting to see what if anything will be stated about the ballistics of weapons used and by whom.

Retired LMPD officers say that there will be “no healing” until there is a change in leadership in Metro Louisville politics and within the police department.

I have no doubt that the City will erupt into violence when the report is released by the end of the month, if not sooner.


Here’s an article of a first-hand report of what it was like in Kenosha during the riots. The citizenry were on their own for self protection.

Never, ever, ever believe the media.

Ever.

They own this shit. Almost every single one of these “incidents” were shit. And the media knew it. But they are on the side of the rioters. Of the Trump Haters. The side opposite Law and Order.




Knowing what one is talking about is widely admired but not strictly required here.

I was watching some of the protest tonight in Philadelphia and a protester is holding
a sign with " michael forest reinoehl ".
WTF. Then later some loud mouth female gave the usual commie speech and told the crowd to remember their comrades who have died for their cause.

Minneapolis City Council Members Who Called For Dismantling Police Now Complain There's Not Enough Policing

Just months after the Minneapolis City Council called for “dismantling” the police department in the wake of George Floyd’s death, they are now panicking that there’s not enough policing to deal with the spike in violent crime.

During a recent meeting that was supposed to be a study session on police reform, Democratic council members instead relayed the frustrations they’re hearing from constituents.

"Residents are asking, ‘Where are the police’?” said council member Jamal Osman, reports MPR News. “That is the only public safety option they have at the moment. MPD. They rely on MPD. And they are saying they are nowhere to be seen.”

The number of reported violent crimes, like assaults, robberies and homicides are up compared to 2019, according to MPD crime data. More people have been killed in the city in the first nine months of 2020 than were slain in all of last year. Property crimes, like burglaries and auto thefts, are also up. Incidents of arson have increased 55 percent over the total at this point in 2019.

Even typically safer wards are seeing a major spike in violence, with residents telling their council members they feel “terrorized.”

Council President Lisa Bender, who led the charge to dismantle the police and “replace it with a transformative new model of public safety,” argued that officers were being defiant.

maybe because they are not idiots

Police Chief Medaria Arradondo said approximately 100 officers have left the department or taken leave since the start of 2020.

At least one council member, who is still an advocate for creating a community safety agency to replace the police, said he was “flabbergasted” by the change in tune from his colleagues.

“What I am sort of flabbergasted by right now is colleagues, who a very short time ago were calling for abolition, are now suggesting we should be putting more resources and funding into MPD,” council member Phillipe Cunningham said, reports MPR News.

In June, the city council voted to replace the police department with a new public safety unit called the Department of Community Safety and Violence Prevention. They hoped to get the issue on the November ballot but that move was blocked by the Minneapolis Charter Commission.

Phillipe Cunningham is the city council person for Minneapolis Ward 4. Cunningham identifies as black, queer, and transgender.

I guess you've never heard the way the BLM people talk about whites or whiteness.

yeah that was great. Big Grin I also like "car climber turned pavement licker" lololol

This stuff really does point to how the two sides genuinely think differently. These folks legitimately believe they should be able to block traffic without consequence. Seems a crazy notion to folks like us, but "duh" to folks like them. How will we ever get back on the same page when we're not even in the same library right now?

Do we need to be? These idiots were taught and (consistently) socialized to think that way; someone had to invent and maintain an entire environment just to 'evolve' fools like them. Future generations can be taught differently. These idiots themselves are beyond redemption by anyone but themselves - so I figure they're pretty much hosed.
