    So many journalists being arrested.


    Journalists clearly covering the demonstrations, riots, looting, not participating.

    But there's people who thought Hillary would be worse.

    Again, the Clinton foreign policy would have been worse for the region I live in. As experience proves.

    Again, IMHO their particular brand of Neo-liberalism as shown its limits. During her recent appearance in Joe Rogan's podcast, Krystal Ball gives an explanation of why it has eroded community life in the U.S., might want to check it out; I'm sure it's non-progressive enough for most people's tastes.
    acket.

    Growing the LAPD was gospel at City Hall. George Floyd changed that

    Notably, I thought it stood out that the budget cut makes the portion of the city budget that goes towards the LAPD go from about 53% to just below 50%. Even with the cut, LAPD gets nearly half the money the city spends.

    I have to admit I had no idea LA spent 50% of its budget on police...

    So if we need money to build up other areas in the city, it makes sense to shift some funds from such a well funded police.

    $150 million cut probably wonít cause LAPD pain at all, but hopefully the money will be put to good use in minority communities. However I hope money wonít be wasted just on PR moves but will actually build up and heal minority communities.

    Lastly, besides healing, we also need to prevent future injuries! Iím still waiting on what actual reforms that will take place to minimize unfair police oppression of minority lives.

    I really donít want to see anymore brutal beatings/killings and the subsequent protesting/rioting again. We may not be able to fully cure racism, but surely we can adopt measures that could remove bad actors in the police dept?

    The DC Mayor is taking NO SHIT from Trump, first she kicked out the National Guard from DC hotel rooms invoking the 3rd Amendment, and now:

    @washingtonpost

    D.C. mayor renames street outside White House ‘Black Lives Matter Plaza’ in escalation of feud over federal presence in city


    Trump must be losing his fking mind right now

    Edit: oh and there's this now too:

    I love it!

    The Imbecile in Chief has now attacked her on Twitter and threatened to send in ďa different group of men and womenĒ.

    Bowser hasn’t been well liked in DC, but this is probably going to help her re-election chances greatly

    That was certainly very interesting...

    I like the renaming of a street... hopefully to be able to remind cops to please donít fuck up again when pursuing future suspects...
