Minneapolis revolt

So that white guy in the brand new respirator who was breaking windows in Minneapolis has been identified as a police officer.

Victim George Floyd and the fired officer who killed him worked overlapping shifts at a South Minneapolis club, and may have known each other.

Minneapolis police are spraying pepper spray out of their car windows while driving by random bystanders and arresting news crews (but apparently only if the news crews weren't white).

For a minute I was worried that the precinct fire might destroy the chance of testing for any backlogged rape kits that are sitting in their evidence room, but it was just an overreaction, those kits were never going to be tested.

Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
