Very cool. How'd they get that shot? I thought airspace is restricted at all times near the WH.
Honestly, it wouldn't surprise me if its just a photoshop on a google maps image. Its damn cool anyway
An illegal drone flight would possibly slip thru for the couple of minutes it takes to lift to the skies while taking photos (better no life streaming, the Secret Service guys know how to track WiFi) and drop to terra firma. Then someone sneaks away the SD card, someone walks of with a GoPro and the drone owner goes his way.

Family member of mine today. L.A.

(I know she looks young, but she's in her 40s and mother of two).
Her 8yo asked her last week: "I thought racism was over?"
Oh, look. Today we get the kids, too!

'Toxic Culture' of Police Departments Decried After 57 Buffalo Officers Resign in Support of Two in Unit Who Attacked Elderly Man
"So is 57 officers resigning at once just a few bad apples?"
The Buffalo Police Benevolent Association, the department's AFL-CIO-affiliated union, claimed in a statement announcing the mass resignation that the two officers caught on camera shoving 75-year-old Martin Gugino to the ground with no provocation were only following orders.

It's unclear what orders led to the unprovoked assault, after which Gugino lay motionless on the ground, blood pouring out of his ear.

"This is an example of officers doing exactly what they're supposed to," union president John Evans told the Investigative Post Friday.

re: we only followed orders...

Looks to me that a police department needs to be put on unpaid leave and work their ways thru months of film documentation from the Nürnberg Trials.

If only these 59 principled policemen had resigned from the Buffalo Police Department's Emergency Response Team 2 days ago.

About Martin Gugino. His attorney says the injury is severe.

Gugino has a youtube account. Here's one of his videos: Sekrit Stuffs!
Twitter: Sekrit Stuffs!
He's well known for his work with local civil rights activism with PUSH Buffalo, and the WNY Peace Center.

There's social media effort to blame him - He was taunting the police, engendered injure to the police by standing too close, was a rioter, etc. Actually, he found a helmet on the ground and was returning it to them.

Hawaii A.G. responds to online rumors of violence at planned weekend protests
https://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/2020/06/0 ... s-weekend/

But social media posts in recent days have claimed that violent characters were being flown in to start trouble at weekend protests, and the rumors have become pervasive enough that state law enforcement officials responded to them on Friday.

“While social media can be helpful in distributing information broadly, everyone knows there are countless examples of where social media platforms have spread misinformation through false postings," said Clare Connors, the state’s Attorney General. "We encourage readers and viewers to be discerning, to rely only on official sources of information and to avoid getting caught up in the dissemination of rumors and/or gossip online.”

In a statement of their own, the Honolulu Police Department acknowledged the social media postings and also debunked rumors that a hospital on Oahu was being told to prepare for a large number of injured protesters.

“This rumor is false,” the department said.

Still, the possibility that local protests could turn as destructive as some of the demonstrations seen on the mainland ― something law enforcement sources have said they do not expect to happen ― prompted some Waikiki businesses to take protective measures on Friday.

If you play the video, it has some text in the bottom left corner that says "Salem, OR"
Salem? When did Salem have protests with a police riot throwing CS gas?

I've had a busy week with plenty of windshield time meaning lots of FM broadcast listening to various stations as I move around. And the Salem BLM protests were such a non-event, I don't recall it being mentioned on the RW radio that dominates outside the Portland market. So, I employed a little Google Fu to find out what I missed. There was in fact several protests over three days at the state capital starting earlier in the week coinciding with national events. And as experienced elsewhere, the daytime protests were peaceful, and the nightime protests were rambunctious. And as revealed by the leaked video, our local antagonists and bosom buddies of LEOs in WA and OR were in the thick of it. Joey likes to have his teaching moments.

The FB posts quibble over whether or not these are white supremacists, 'Proud Boys', III %s. There's only a few people who are questioning exactly why a uniformed police officer was posing with them.

There are several people on the thread who insist it's just a prank or fake news that the hand sign is the racist 'OK' sign (as they exchange knowing glances and nods).

When one signals "OK", the "O" is in a vertical plane.

Anything else is a signal for something else, IMHO.

Folks wait in line for the public viewing of George Floyd. The church is letting 20 people in at a time, starting at 11. Most people are still in their cars, with overflow parking lots nearly full. #GeorgeFloydMemorial

In McAllen-

Man who wielded chainsaw at Texas protesters detained by police
The man, whose identity has not been disclosed, can be heard shouting at the people on the sidewalk to "move" while he revs a chainsaw.


https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/ma ... d_nn_tw_ma
In a video of the incident posted to Twitter at 2:25 p.m., a man in a long-sleeve red shirt and blue jeans wields the chainsaw at protesters on the sidewalk outside a store.

The video had been viewed nearly a million times by Friday evening.

The man, whose identity has not been disclosed, can be heard shouting at the people on the sidewalk to "move" while he revs the chainsaw.

"Go home," he shouts six times. "Don’t let those f------ n------ out there fool you."

Armed bystanders line Black Lives Matter protest in Indiana, protesters say aim was to intimidate

https://abc13.com/6234854/?ex_cid=TA_KT ... ce=twitter
CROWN POINT, Ind. -- Video of nearly two dozen armed bystanders lining the end of a Black Lives Matter protest in Indiana has gone viral. "They were just trying to stand there and intimidate us," said Amaya Butler of Black Lives Matter Northwest Indiana. "We were very peaceful."

The 19-year-old organizer of the Monday march in Crown Point said they were near the end of their protest over the death of George Floyd when a group of men holding guns and rifles appeared.

Other marchers said as they left, some people yelled racial slurs and insults at them.

:snippity:

Local police officers can be seen on the same video monitoring the situation, which officials said remained peaceful.
