random legal PSA I just learned: if you're being questioned by police, merely remaining silent does not actually constitute invoking your 5th Amendment right to silence; you have to actively tell the police that that's what your doing, otherwise the police might be able to construe your silence as a negative.
This is fucked up bullshit that completely shoots Miranda in the knees, and somehow I've never heard of it, but. It's the law, so you should know it.
Pol, police murder, Toledo
The lawyer for the cop who murdered a 13 year old kid said the cop had no other choice because the kid had a gun and officer had no cover:
Pretending that one believes anything a cop says, ever, for any reason, this video explains why *even* that specific excuse is bullshit:
Tl;dr: The cop controls the situation and chooses to enter situations without cover. There is literally no excuse for this shit.
here's some people doing jail support locally in case you wanted to know who is doing that. https://mnuprising.wordpress.com/
It's a grand fucking irony of our age that people think Bill Gates is trying to implant us all with microchips when the actual conspiracy he is behind and which is completely open and on record is preventing open source vaccines, preserving copyright and slowing vaccinations

The officer who killed Daunte Wright was the president of the Brooklyn Center Police Association.
They like to share fun memes on their Facebook page. Here’s one.
Someone being angry, upset, or loud, doesn't make them wrong, and remaining calm in an argument doesn't make someone right either.
There are plenty of reasonable situations where someone can be angry and right, or calm and wrong. Don't make this mistake when assessing the validity of either side of an argument.
remember when noted child-slayer george zimmerman offered an open challenge for an amateur boxing match and dmx stepped up and said "i'm going to kill that guy" and zimmerman quietly withdrew from the whole thing
