That one is probably deliberate.
The difference between the Middle Ages, and the Age of the Internet, is that in the Middle Ages no-one thought the Earth was flat.

I can’t remember a sitting president in modern times having to hide in a bunker in the basement of the White House because the Americans people are protesting him.

Historians, correct me if I am wrong.

Hitler did that. He hid in his bunker.

Several people were injured when a truck drove through a group of protesters on I-244 eastbound during a #GeorgeFloydProtest. (2nd photo) the driver placed a handgun on the dash for protesters to see before taking off. https://t.co/990ueGd8EC https://t.co/3LGIGYTi3y

My daily news briefing from Australia reported that Aussie reporters have been arrested as well.

ACLU @ACLU
To the police arresting, targeting, or shooting journalists: Don't for a minute think your unlawful actions will go unanswered.

We will hold you to account.

To journalists risking their lives to keep the public informed: Stay safe. We thank you and we've got your back.

Ya know, I've never understood the concept behind choosing to be a criminal, yet getting inked with distinctive tattoos.:confused: It just makes it that much easier for the police to ID them.

Oh well. Bye-bye Wesley. :wave:

Colorado Times Recorder: Denver Police Seized Assault Rifles from Anti-Government Gun Activists at Friday Night Protest

During a vehicle search near the downtown Denver protest on Friday evening, police officers seized several military-style assault rifles from anti-government gun enthusiasts who call themselves “Boogaloo Bois.”

Most peaceful protesters had left downtown Denver by the time police searched a car that had been occupied by a group of young men, one of whom was wearing a military-style vest.

They found several semi-automatic assault rifles, numerous magazines and other weapons in the trunk. ...

CBS Denver featured a portion of McGee’s May 1 livestream as part of its report on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s arrest of his associate Brad Bunn for possessing pipe bombs.

Not a tattoo fan here, but at least get halfway decent ones. Those look scrawled on with a half-used Sharpie.

George Floyd riots: Aussie journalist detained amid US protests
JUNE 1, 2020 1:48AM
Protests for the death of George Floyd have lead to extreme riots, looting and dangerous clashes with police in several cities in the US.

Alex Turner-Cohennews.com.au
An Australian reporter has told of the tense moments after a police officer “freaked out” and ordered him and his crew out of their car at gunpoint in the middle of the country’s riots.
The US has seen days of protests and violence following the death of George Floyd, a black man in custody.

Journalist Tim Arvier has been covering the tensions in the country for Channel 9 and has found himself right at the centre of the clashes including being within metres of a man who was stabbed in Minneapolis, where the crisis began.

That’s horrible. For some historical context, though, the Market House in Fayetteville was a place where they auctioned slaves.
