-War on Police-
Rochester police chief, deputy retiring after Daniel Prude death

Courtesy of Clem, Zero Hedge‘s take:
Entire Rochester Police Command Resigns

President Trump has weighed in:

Rochester, NY Police Chief La'Ron Singletary said in a surprise announcement on Tuesday that he will be retiring at the age of 40 after less than 18 months on the job, after controversy erupted over the March death of a black man while in police custody.

His deputy and the city's entire command staff joined him in leaving, according to ABC News and Bloomberg.

Speaking via Zoom, Mayor Lovely Warren confirmed the moves, adding "The Chief was not asked to give his resignation."

When asked who would be in charge of the police department this evening in the event of new protests, Warren said she didn’t know and asked for the briefing to be adjourned so that a replacement could be found. As of Sunday, a total of 37 people had been arrested and eight police officers hospitalized amid the unrest. -Bloomberg

Singletary came under fire following news of the death of Daniel Prude, a mentally ill black man who died of asphyxiation after police attempted to take him into protective custody in March - two months before the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, yet the incident didn't become public until last week, according to the Democrat & Chronicle.

Prude, 41, had been suffering from a mental health episode and was running naked throughout the streets. Once officers caught him, a 'spit hood' was placed over his head after he began spitting. He was then held face down on the pavement for just over two minutes, after which he stopped breathing. Prude was pronounced DOA to the hospital from asphyxia....

In a Tuesday statement, Chief Singletary said in part: "As a man of integrity, I will not sit idly by while outside entities attempt to destroy my character," adding "The events over the past week are an attempt to destroy my character and integrity."...

Dallas police chief resigns after criticism of department's actions against peaceful protesters

#1  Renee had a very unique approach to protests after rioting damaged stores. She would allow protestors to protest but they had to march through downtown, on Saturday or Sunday when no one was around in downtown, and they had to do their protest march along a series of desolate streets and allies that also had no traffic or people. And the protest march would be escorted by a huge number of police vehicles with the first police vehicle behind the marchers was an unventilated paddy wagon ready to load up the protestors if they got one step out of line.

Witnessing this brilliance of Chief Renee's part was very impressive to me.

i capital of Doha ahead of planned peace talks between the Afghan government and the group.
In a statement released on Tuesday, Taliban front man Mohammad Naeem said the head of the Taliban’s political office, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, and the new head of the Taliban’s negotiating team, Abdul Hakim Haqqani, had met with Khalilzad and Qatar’s deputy prime minister in Doha on Monday.

"Issues related to the prisoners’ release and immediate start of the intra-Afghan talks were discussed," Naeem said.

Talks with American officials had for the last two years been led by Baradar, a co-founder of the Taliban, who signed a deal with Washington earlier this year.

But a new, 21-member team would be headed by Haqqani, a senior Death Eater leader and the Taliban’s former shadow "chief justice." The Taliban said that the team had been changed to give it power to take decisions on the spot.

The Afghan government last week released the remaining Taliban prisoners under the deal between the US and the Taliban. The Afghan government had been hesitant because some of the captured turbans had been involved in serious crimes. The US was pressuring Kabul to release the Death Eaters.

Morsi's son killed by lethal injection: Lawyers
[PRESSTV] A law firm representing the family of Egypt’s late former president Mohammed Morsi concludes that the death of his youngest son, Abdullah, last year was caused by injection of a "lethal substance."

"Information now disclosed appears to confirm that Abdullah was transported in his car a distance of more than 20 kilometers (12 miles) to a hospital after he took his last breath, as a result of having been injected with a lethal substance," said a statement by the London-based Guernica 37 International Justice Chambers.

"He was not transferred to nearby hospitals, intentionally, until after he had died," added the statement cited by the Middle East Eye (MEE) news and opinion website.

The Egyptian government claimed the 25-year-old had died of a heart attack while driving.

The law firm said, "It is quite clear that certain elements of the state were aware of this fact that is only now coming to light."

Prior to his death, Abdullah had named several individuals, including current Interior Minister Mahmoud Tawfiq and Mohammed Shereen Fahmy, the judge who oversaw the Morsi's trial, as "accomplices" in the "liquidation of the martyr, President Morsi."

Biden Supporters Indicted for Robbery and Assault After Mugging a 7-Year-Old
[RedState] On August 20, as the rest of the world stood in raptured silence as the Democrat convention unfolded, a bit of the violence that is endemic on the left became visible to the rest of the country.

Two Biden supporters, Olivia Winslow and Camryn Amy, both 21-years-old and presumptively female though they could very well be male Democrats given the examples of that species we’ve seen, went onto private property near the “convention” site and destroyed “MAGA” signs. When they were caught in the act by the householder, the duo manhandled a 7-year-old boy and took his MAGA hat. The mother followed them, filming all the way, and was assaulted for her efforts as did a passerby who tried to intervene. The guy who was attacked showed remarkable restraint in a situation that should have cost plus-sized Camryn Amy some dental implants and a nose job.

From the Washington Times:

Two women are facing hate crime charges after confronting a 7-year-old boy and his mother outside the Democratic National Convention in Delaware over their support of President Donald Trump and seizing a “Make America Great Again” hat.

A grand jury on Tuesday indicted Olivia Winslow and Camryn Amy, both 21, on felony charges of robbery, conspiracy and hate crimes and a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child.

Amy also was indicted on misdemeanor charges of assaulting a man who tried to retrieve the hat, attempting to assault his mother, and offensive touching of the boy.

Two Myanmar soldiers at ICC after confessing to Rohingya killings
[PRESSTV] Two Myanmarese soldiers have been taken to the International Criminal Court (ICC) after confessing to their participation in the 2017 massacre of countless Rohingya Moslems, two news organizations and a rights group say.The two men admitted to killing dozens of villagers in northern Rakhine State and burying them in mass graves, according to The New York Times

...which still proudly displays Walter Duranty's Pulitzer prize...

, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, and the non-profit Fortify Rights, citing statements the men made on videos filmed in Myanmar earlier this year.
Yep. That's them. I knew they were the ones as dunnit.
In the videos, the two men also provide the names of the Myanmarese army battalions that were involved in the brutal campaign, the villages they destroyed, as well as the locations of mass graves.

The pair describes very similar orders from different superiors to kill or shoot "all" the Rohingya Moslems they encountered, and says that women, children, and elderly people were among their victims.

The reports said the men had been in the custody of the Arakan Army (AA), a Buddhist rebel group calling for greater autonomy for Rakhine, when they made the admissions.

The reports said the men appeared together on the Bangladesh border in mid-August, retelling their stories, and requesting protection.

With their transfer to ICC custody, the soldiers are now potential witnesses to genocide.

The ICC last year approved a long-awaited full investigation into the crimes against the Rohingya minority.

Rochester Diners Terrorized by BLM, and the Restaurant Sides With the Rioters?
PJ via Instapundit
...On Friday, violent protesters came into Ox and Stone and terrorized diners by turning over tables, breaking glass, throwing chairs, and screaming at them that the "party is over." In one harrowing moment, a large man approached a table full of women and swept all the glassware off the table and shattered it all over them.

But even more shocking is that the owners of the three restaurants affected by the rioters issued a statement of support—not for their customers, but for the criminals who terrorized their patrons and destroyed their property. This is not a joke.
    Despite what videos might depict, we lost some glassware last night. You cannot deny the anger and hurt our community is feeling right now. As always the actions of a few agitators are amplified louder and louder as videos are shared and conclusions are drawn. We, now and always, stand with those standing against injustice.
Tell me again I should empathize with restaurateurs whose business is hurt by lack of indoor dinning.

But if this is coming down the street it is time for you to go. Don't wait for the waiter, don't wait to pay, time to go. If you don't like the looks of the avenue, go through the restaurant or business and take the back door - remember to check the ally for trouble before letting the door shut behind you as most business back door are locked to the outside.

But that's against the rules! Nope, past that now. Besides, the workers may appreciate the heads-up too; might be the difference in getting the doors locked, kinda important especially if the ally is a no-go.

It tells you who the owners fear more in the moment.

Lots of would-be customers from the area will see this. These words will come at a price. As for those who would still patronize it, BLM/Antifa don't really care, they have other goals in mind that others don't acknowledge yet, and they may well return for an encore, no matter what words the owners used.

And then, hopefully all this will be behind us after Antifa/BLM become outcasts. And those words will still be there.

Partial Transcript of Ashleigh's "whites are all racist" intro
the session was a breakout at a Netroots conference, so presumably all far lefties in audience
[PJMedia] ...All white people are racists. So, I put this up because I really want any white person in the room to know up front that this is what we’re dealing with. That it’s not going to be this coddling of white tears. And we’re not going to discuss, "oh, maybe some of us are going to work it out." No, you’re always going to be racist, actually. So even when you’re on your path to trying to figure out how to be a better human being, I believe that white people are born into not being human [laughs]. Like people of color and black folks being dehumanized, that actually everyone is dehumanized [unintelligible] off white supremacy, that y’all are born into a life to not be human. And that’s what y’all are taught to do, be demons [laughs]. So in this particular way, white people are all racists, so I just want y’all to know that up front...

#3  Ashleigh Shackelford who has lately gone under the name Hunter Ashleigh

I'm positive there is a man, woman and several sets of triplets struggling to get out of that blob of lard.

#6  Not yet, but keep up the good work, and I can certainly appreciate the need for the pronoun 'they', but I must caution it may not be inclusive enough...in a volumetric sense that is.

#7  "Hunter Ashleigh Shackelford (she/ they) is a Black fat [you don't want to see pictures] cultural producer, multidisciplinary artist, nonbinary shapeshifter, hood feminist, and data futurist..."

By your own self description you have a lot more problems than being dehumanized. You could keep the whole psychiatric center of Bellevue employed for 50 years.

#8  nonbinary shapeshifter

Truth be told, there's a lot of shape to be shifted around.

#9  the real story is that people sat in front of this beast and enjoyed the abuse.

whatever HR person thought this was a good idea should be hung upside down at a gas station.

#10  ^I noticed HR departments were starting to become leftist back in 2002, which was my last job as a software engineer. I got pulled into HR at a subsidiary of PNC Bank. I knew I was going to be quitting so I said in front of Ms. Donahue (not at her) in a soft voice - 'So this is where they stick all the useless people'. Walked outta there with only a warning.

#11  Walk into any HR or Gov't Civilian personnel Office (CPO) and see whom you'll find working there. Been that way for decades. All part of the larger plan.

#14  There must be a nation somewhere in the world where whites are a minority. Perhaps Ashleigh would be happier in one of those.

#15  South Africa and Zimbabwe come to mind. How’s that working out for them?

#16  Ashleigh's "whites are all racist" intro

Its a pre-filter. Anyone seeing that who disagreed wouldn't bother to go see her. Those who do will be in an echo chamber and will send $ to her PayPal account to assuage their white guilt.

#20  I don't know which sickens me more-- the sight of that fat, stupid, ugly parasite spouting her poisonous racist garbage, or the passive, gullible whites sitting in her audience obediently lapping it up.

Garbage people, all.
