Re: Live Coverage - Protests In Multiple Cities Over George Floyd's Death -- Moving Toward The White House 5/29 Onward

NBC News @NBCNews · 1m Attorney for George Floyd's family says authorities have told them the other 3 officers involved in the detainment that preceded Floyd's death will be charged. I'm pretty sure that I remember hearing Hennepin county attorney Freeman say quite a few days ago that he expects to...

My favorite Scandinavian store is up on Lake Street, just a mile west of that destroyed Target. The StarTribune published a list of damaged and destroyed buildings.

Re: Cops Behaving Badly

Yeah, there's speculation that he's a Stl Paul cop. But people seem eager to believe conspiracies and they also seem to think that superficial resemblance is proof of identity.

Nope. Wrong of anyone to get up in someone’s face, especially when the other person is standing still and drawing boundaries. Proof that he/she/it didn’t feel threatened by anything but their bad behavior being caught on camera. Sex/gender irrelevant. See, I agree that it is wrong regardless, but d...
