In Chicago, no motive is necessary. How about just for the hell of it. Or I was in a bad mood. Or I'm sensitive about my height and these two little fu$kers stretched my last nerve. Or, I wanted to kill white people but black people were the only one's available. I wanted to try out the new gun I just stole? I was on crack.

"Five army soldiers and a policeman were killed in the attack," he said. "Four Taliban were also killed and two others were maimed."

However,
there's no worse danger than telling a mother her baby is ugly...
the local security officials and the Taliban have not yet commented on the attack.

Bomb kills two Algerian soldiers in north
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Two Algerian soldiers, including an officer, were killed when a bomb went kaboom! during an army operation in the north of the country, the defense ministry said Sunday.

Captain Fateh Bensmail and Sergeant Zakaria Khaldi were killed Saturday night, the ministry said in a statement, after a home-made bomb went kaboom! during a search and sweep operation in the province of Medea, south of the capital Algiers.

The deaths bring the total number of Algerian soldiers killed this year to four.

For all the latest headlines follow our Google News channel online or via the app.

One soldier was killed on June 20 in a clash with "an armed terrorist group" in the central province of Ain Defla, the ministry announced last Sunday, while another died in a February attack in Timiaouine, on the southern border with Mali.

Algerian authorities use the term "terrorist" to describe armed Islamists who have been active in the country since the early 1990s.

A 1992-2002 civil war pitted Islamist turbans against the Algerian government, leaving 200,000 people dead.

Despite a 2005 charter for peace and reconciliation designed to turn the page on the conflict, armed Islamist groups still remain active in some areas of the country, largely targeting security forces.

Jihadists in NE Nigeria kill 11, others missing: Security sources
[AlAhram] At least nine Nigerian soldiers and two members of a civil defence militia were killed in a jihadist attack on a civilian convoy in northeast Borno state, security sources told AFP Sunday.

Several civilians were said to be missing after the ambush.

The jihadist fighters opened fire with heavy guns and rocket-propelled grenades on the convoy of more than a hundred vehicles Saturday afternoon outside Komala village near the town of Damboa, 90 kilometres (55 miles) from the regional capital Maiduguri.

Damboa lies on the fringes of Boko Haram

's Sambisa forest enclave from where the group launches attacks on villages and against troops.

"Nine soldiers and two (anti-jihadist) militia were killed in the attack, " a military officer said.

"It was an ambush on a civilian convoy escorted by troops and the militia," said the military officer who asked not to be identified.

The convoy, was heading from Maiduguri to Damboa when it was attacked, according to militia leader Ibrahim Liman who confirmed the corpse count.

"The bodies of nine soldiers and two vigilantes were recovered from the attack along with others who sustained injuries," Liman said.

The jihadist holy warriors seized several vehicles and looted supplies before withdrawing to their Sambisa enclave, he added.

Several civilians were still missing and were presumed killed or kidnapped by the assailants, the militia leader said.

Boko Haram and its splinter Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems....
West Africa Province (ISWAP) are notorious for ambushing military and civilian convoys on highways outside Maiduguri in addition to abducting travellers at bogus checkpoints.

Civilians travelling north of Maiduguri move in convoys under military escort due to the incessant attacks by the jihadists, wich have intensified in recent weeks.

The decade-long jihadist conflict has cost the lives of 36,000 people and displaced around two million from their homes in the northeast.

The violence has also spread to neighbouring Niger, Chad and Cameroon

What's next on the part of these rioters, a Fallujah scenario with American burned bodies hanging from bridges?

a Detroit police officer drove an SUV through a crowd of protesters after they surrounded the vehicle and began pounding on it.
Jae Bass, 24, of Detroit, who was one of the men thrown from the hood, said police attempted to block the marchers from returning to Patton Park. He tried to lead the protesters through the roadblock and some of the police vehicles began moving.


Bass said he tried to stand in front of the police SUV to stop it before it endangered protesters.

An earlier version of the article said the back window of the cop car was shattered.

Lala Times: Beverly Hills Facing Criticism After Arrests Of 28 Peaceful Protesters
Looks like the Freakenstein Monster is turning on Dr. Freakenstein.

My favorite part of this piece is the biography of the co-writer (scroll down):

"Marisa Gerber is a narrative writer at the Los Angeles Times."

[LATimes] Beverly Hills is facing criticism after officers arrested 28 people during a peaceful protest against police violence overnight, two weeks after imposing an unusual ordinance banning demonstrations in residential areas that “disrupted the tranquility.”

The latest protest, which began about 7:30 p.m. Friday and drew about 75 people, was the third demonstration in Beverly Hills organized by the Black Future Project, but the first that resulted in arrests, said organizer Austin Tharpe, 29.

“We’re protesting for Black lives,” he said. “Specifically in Beverly Hills, because of the privilege and the whole makeup of the community, we felt like our voices needed to be heard over there.”

He said that after protesters marched for several hours, police deployed a long-range acoustic device, also known as a sonic cannon, and declared the demonstration an unlawful assembly shortly before midnight.

“We put the signs on the ground,” he said. “We turned around and faced away from the cops with our knees on the ground and our hands behind our head.”

He said that officers continued to yell out orders to disperse, while protesters continued to kneel.

A total of 28 people were taken into custody, most on suspicion of unlawful assembly, though one person faced an attempted arson charge after allegedly trying to set fire to a large American flag that was attached to a building, said Sgt. Thomas West of the Beverly Hills Police Department. That person was associated with the protest but not the Black Future Project, Tharpe said.

“They were given multiple warnings to leave, and as arrests were being made we were continually asking people to leave, so it was just the people who absolutely refused to leave who were placed under arrest,” West said.

Initially, the Police Department planned to hold the protesters under what’s called a misdemeanor non-release, which would have required that they post $5,000 bail to get out, West said.

Later in the day, citing a directive from command staff, the department reversed course and said the protesters would be cited and released on their own recognizance, provided that they did not have outstanding warrants. The demonstrators remained in custody late Saturday afternoon, prompting concern from activists who said they should have been cited and released more quickly.

Narrative writer? Doesn't that automatically put it in contention as fake news?

I'd bet none of these protesters live in Beverly Hills.

Four Men Charged in Federal Court for Attempting to Tear Down Statue of Andrew Jackson
[JUSTICE.GOV] Lee Michael Cantrell, 47, of Virginia; Connor Matthew Judd, 20, of Washington, D.C.; Ryan Lane, 37, of Maryland; and Graham Lloyd, 37, of Maine, were charged by criminal complaint yesterday with destruction of federal property, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Michael R. Sherwin, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Washington Field Office’s Criminal Division James A. Dawson, and Acting Chief of the United States Park Police (USPP) Gregory T. Monahan. The complaint, unsealed today, alleges that on June 22, 2020, the four men along with other unidentified individuals, damaged and attempted to tear down the statue depicting Andrew Jackson located in Lafayette Square. The complaint further alleges that Cantrell was captured on video attempting to pry the statue off its base with a wooden board and trying to pull the statue down with the aid of a yellow strap. The complaint alleges that Judd is seen on video trying to pull down the statue, and that Lane is seen on video affixing a rope to one part of the statue and then pulling on another rope tied to the statue. The complaint also alleges that video of the incident shows Lloyd as he breaks off and destroys the wheels of cannons located at the base of the statue. Lloyd is also captured on video pulling on ropes in an effort to topple the statue, and handing a hammer to an unidentified individual involved in the incident.

Judd was arrested on Friday and appeared in Superior Court of the District of Columbia today. The matter will be transferred to the United States District Court for the District of Columbia on Monday, June 29, 2020, where Judd will make his initial appearance before United States Magistrate Judge Robin M. Meriweather. The remaining defendants have not yet been apprehended.

City, artists come together to paint ‘All Black Lives Matter’ on N.J. street
[NJ] It was downpouring on Halsey Street in Newark Saturday afternoon, but that didn’t stop Kween Moore from dancing in between yellow letters she helped paint on the road to spell out "ALL BLACK LIVES MATTER."

"This is including everyone," said Moore, who is an art teacher at Greater Oaks Charter School. "That’s why ’all’ is emphasized at the beginning because we’re not leaving anybody out. No matter your gender, no matter what shade of Black you are."

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
Gaza man arrested by IDF after trying to swim to Israel
[IsraelTimes] Military says infiltrator, unarmed, taken for questioning; incident not suspected to be terror-related

A Paleostinian man from the Gazoo
...Hellhole adjunct to Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, inhabited by Gazooks. The place was acquired in the wake of the 1967 War and then presented to Paleostinian control in 2006 by Ariel Sharon, who had entered his dotage. It is currently ruled with an iron fist by Hamaswith about the living conditions you'd expect. It periodically attacks the Hated Zionist Entity whenever Iran needs a ruckus created or the hard boyz get bored, getting thumped by the IDF in return. The ruling turbans then wave the bloody shirt and holler loudly about oppression and disproportionate response...
Strip was arrested Sunday evening after he tried to swim to Israel through the sea, the Israel Defense Forces said.

The man was detained by the navy some 200 meters from Israeli shores. Forces had seen him cross the maritime border, the IDF said.

The suspect was found to be unarmed and was taken for questioning, according to the statement.

The Walla news site quoted an unnamed security source saying the suspect was likely trying to enter the country illegally.

There is no suspicion that the incident is terror-related, the Ynet website reported.

The incident came after Gazook terror groups fired two rockets at Israel on Friday evening. The rockets fell in open areas, without causing casualties or damage. One rocket landed in an open area in the Sha’ar Hanegev region, while the second apparently fell within the Strip.

Nine Iran-backed fighters killed in another air raid in Syria
[ENGLISH.ALARABIYA.NET] Air strikes targeting positions of Iran-backed militias in eastern Syria killed nine fighters on Sunday in the second such raid in 24 hours, a war monitor said.

The Britannia-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Israel was "likely responsible" for the strikes near the Iraqi border.

They came hours after a similar raid killed six other Tehran-backed fighters, raising the total toll to 15 killed in 24 hours, according to the monitor.

The fighters killed in the early Sunday raids were mostly Iraqi nationals, according to Observatory head Rami Abdul Rahman.

Israel has launched hundreds of strikes in Syria since the start of the civil war in 2011.

It has targeted government troops, allied Iranian forces and fighters from Leb
...an Iranian colony situated on the eastern Mediterranean, conveniently adjacent to Israel. Formerly inhabited by hardy Phoenecian traders, its official language is now Arabic, with the usual unpleasant side effects. The Leb civil war, between 1975 and 1990, lasted a little over 145 years and produced 120,000 fatalities. The average length of a ceasefire was measured in seconds. The Lebs maintain a precarious sectarian balance among Shiites, Sunnis, and about a dozeen flavors of Christians. It is the home of Hezbollah, which periodically starts a war with the Zionist Entity, gets Beirut pounded to rubble, and then declares victory and has a parade. The Lebs have the curious habit of periodically murdering their heads of state or prime ministers...
’s Hezbollah.
