In other news, this picture was recently taken of @Bob_Loblaw leaving his 4th floor Carlyle 1 bedroom with his driver and butler on either side, and his hired henchman watching in the background:

This will be ignored by the fellas.
Probably because he was one of them!

A 61-year-old Hutchinson, Minn., man was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly assaulted an employee at a Menards in the McLeod County city during a dispute over wearing a mask, then attacked a police officer.

Hutchinson Police Chief Tom Gifferson said in a news release that police were called to the Menards at 1525 SE. Montreal St. on a report that the man had assaulted an employee with a piece of lumber after being asked to wear a mask to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19, required in such settings.

The man left the store and was soon spotted by a police officer in the parking lot of a nearby Walmart. When the officer tried to stop his vehicle, the man led him in what Gifferson described as "a slow speed pursuit" in the area of the Hutchinson mall near Hwy. 15 and S. Grade Road.

The vehicle soon stopped near Hwy. 15 and Freemont Avenue. When the officer tried to engage the suspect through the driver's side window, the suspect took off "at a high rate of speed" with the officer trapped and hanging from the window, Gifferson said. During the struggle, the suspect hit the officer in the head with a hammer, he said.

The officer is hospitalized in stable condition, and the suspect was arrested, police said. The McLeod County Sheriff's Office is investigating.

Sigh.

This wonderful citizen assaults some Menards employee with a piece of lumber because the employee asked him to wear a mask, thereby infringing on his "freedumb".

Then he takes off at high speed in his truck while a cop is trapped with his arm in the vehicle... and hits the cop with a hammer.

Lovely. Just lovely.

Why only ONE assault charge?

He assaulted the Menards employee with a piece of lumber, he rammed a cop car, he took off at high speed with the cop involuntarily hanging on to his truck, and he hit the cop with a hammer. How do you get charged for just ONE crime after all of that?

Also, who is the guy next to the truck, right before it takes off, holding what appears to be an assault weapon?

A quick search shows it is in New York Post, ABC, CNN, Washington Post,
Anyone hear about it? And Howie breathlessly posted a recent MN case where the white driver fled and was not shot. The only possible reason is race.

So then I guess everyone heard of it.

You've debunked yourself.

Well done.
Answer honestly. Were you aware? Was Howie? Guessing not. But you heard about Daunte Wright within hours, nationally. You don’t know why?

So - "White Privilege." for me, it is as simple as this - knowing what you know about the state of race relations in this country, if you had a choice, would you choose to be white or black? I think the vast majority of people would choose to be white. Not because being white provides inherent advantages, but because being black can be perceived as a disadvantage.

And - someone asked why people resist arrest? gets back to the same point. If a white person gets pulled over by the cops, unless he or she is a total meth-head dirtbag, they are generally not going to be in fear of their lives. Whether right or wrong, fair or not, in today's climate, when a black person gets pulled over, they are more likely to be wondering if the cops are going to mess with them. Fear makes people do stupid things. And - to be sure - some of the people involved in these situations are not exactly Rhodes Scholars.

it has become a vicious cycle. minorities don't trust that police will treat them fairly. So when minorities get pulled over, they are less likely to comply. which often leads to altercations. which makes minorities less likely to trust the police and vice versa.
I got pulled over for speeding on the North Shore a couple od summers ago. The cop was pretty pissed at me and it was justified because I was doing something like 85 in a 55 (impatient and in a rush to get home). Part of white privilege (and maturity) was my assumption that the situation would not escalate beyond the cop being annoyed with me and writing me up. I'm confident that if I was a 20 year old black kid with friends in the car, instead of an older white male with friends in the car, the cop would have yanked me out of the vehicle and things would have escalated in some fashion.

From what I've read Dante Wright was no angel. However, he did not deserve to die at that traffic stop. In that situation, two people panicked. Tragically, one had a gun and was incompetent. Today we have another dead black kid at the hands of the police and our state's reputation is further damaged.

Oh, I know the answer to this one!

It is because of the vast liberal media conspiracy!

DRINK!
It’s not a conspiracy. The media is filled with partisan activists. They don’t need to be told what to do. They feel they are doing the right thing and making a difference.
and everyone can see that you didn’t answer the question. And we know why. And we see that you ignored my evidence.

Link to a single person expressing that he “deserved” to die? You won’t be able to find one.
