About 10 pm, some hundred folks were trapped on the MHHill bridge, between two lines of cops, flex tied, and shuttle-bused to the jail. Local CBS news showed one cop offering bottled water to a cuffed protestor. One took several big gulps, the next (tough guy!) refused.
[Mil.com] The Pentagon has ordered an active-duty battalion of military police soldiers from Fort Bragg, North Carolina to deploy to the Washington, D.C. area as the city braces for more violent demonstrations.
CNN was among the first to report the deployment order for between 200 and 250 MPs from Bragg. A Pentagon official confirmed to Military.com that the MPs are from the XVIII Airborne Corps.
The official did not specify what orders the MPs had been given. ABC reported, citing a Defense official, that the troops were being sent into the D.C. region but only on standby capacity, in the event that they are needed.
[Law Enforcement Today] WASHINGTON D.C. – Law enforcement officials from across the country have reached out to Law Enforcement Today asking us to warn police across America about a potential threat.
And since dropping the article on Monday morning, we’ve received word from numerous people letting us know they’ve seen similar suspicious activity in their communities.
We’ve spoken with countless officers in the past 12 hours from across the country – all of whom have reported that their departments have made internal changes over the past few days to ensure both the on-duty and off-duty safety of their officers.
Transparently – our team debated internally whether or not to cover this story. We are America’s largest law enforcement owned and operated media outlet, and we are unapologetically pro-police.
Although we don’t hesitate to call out and provide media coverage of bad apples, our priority is in giving the voice to law enforcement that they’re often denied in the mainstream media.
The last thing we want to do is put officers at risk by giving bad people ideas.
But soon after this threat started spreading like wildfire online, we had law enforcement from across the country reach out. They pointed out that the threat is already circulating.
Many have asked us to address it so that departments are aware of it and can take precautions to make changes, if they deem it necessary – especially given how quickly it’s circulating.
Tell me again how they 'authorities' are going to use LEO to collect your guns under a local 2d Amendment suppression declaration? Fundamental problem is that they have to go home in the end of shift in the community. Not really a good idea to let them take the cruiser home at night to park it.
In ElDorado Hills. CA, a local reported that about 20 cars drove up to an upscale neighborhood called Lake Forest , parked and about 30+ blacks walked slowly through the neighborhood waving and taking pictures. Earlier in the week a social media posting talked about going out to that area by name to take the demonstration to their “hoods”. Pure demonstration of intimidation and threats. The guy took pictures of the arrogant bastards waving and laughing as they walk up the residential streets.
[St. Louis Post] Protesters returned to the streets Monday afternoon and evening to protest the death one week earlier of George Floyd in Minneapolis, an African American man killed by police. Protests again turned violent after dark, as several buildings were looted and fires were set.

All four officers are conscious and breathing, and their injuries are believed to be non-life-threatening. Before the shooting, police deployed multiple rounds of tear gas and flash bangs near Olive and 16th streets. About 90 seconds later, there was heavy gunfire from the same area.

[New York Post] A Nebraska bar owner who shot and killed a George Floyd protester will not be charged because he acted in self-defense, authorities said Monday.
Prosecutors said Jake Gardner, the owner of The Hive bar in Omaha, ended up on his back during a confrontation with a group of protesters Saturday when he fired and struck 22-year-old James Scurlock, the Omaha World-Herald reported Monday.
Douglas County Attorney Don Kleine said Scurlock initially jumped on Gardner’s back and began choking him after the bar owner fired off two warning shots.
"Mr. Gardner, as we know now, has said I did what I did to defend myself and we find that we can’t disprove that from the evidence that we have," Kleine told KMTV News.
He said witnesses and video from the scene confirm that Gardner, who is white, was backing up at the time and that no racial slurs were used during the confrontation with Scurlock, who was black.
Gardner, who has a legal gun permit, was seen on video outside the bar Saturday night apparently urging the crowd of protesters to move along.
Words are exchanged and Gardner ends up on his back in the middle of the street when the shots are fired, including the one that hit Scurlock in the neck and killed him.
James Scurlock Sr., the dead man’s father, said he wants an investigation into his son’s death.
"Once again I ask that we investigate this and I ask my people to stand by me strong but do it peacefully," he told KMTV.
I think the goal of the Antifa leaders is to incite some fatal police responses, so as to escalate their chaos. Fatal civilian responses are far less effective at achieving that goal, but at least as effective at discouraging their 'useful idiots.' Faster, please (h/t Instpundit)
[Federalist] Hollywood celebrities love to virtue signal, and even in a world gone mad, Hollywood remains no different.
After engaging in pointless passive progressivism for years featuring corporate wokesters slipping in the occasional lesbian kiss scene here and there to celebrate themselves as champions of cultural acceptance, Hollywood elites are now actively encouraging the destruction of the nation’s burning cities.
Last week, a series of prominent American movie stars declared they would be donating to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, a non-profit organizing cash bail payments for Minneapolis protestors arrested amid the carnage of the restless riots.
The fund has now drawn the support of the Sadfie brothers, a pair of movie critically-acclaimed movie directors whose work includes the production of the Uncut Gems in 2019.
Other Hollywood figures to pledge donations to the fund include Seth Rogan, Steve Carell, and Ben Schwartz among others.
Even this article makes the same 'mistake' - If 'protestors' aren't doing anything wrong, why were they arrested? Just call them rioters & looters like they should be and dispose of the PC bullshit.
POLK COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) — The Polk County Sheriff’s Office has extended the county’s curfew another night following a weekend of unrest and criminal activity.
"The death of George in Minneapolis at the hands of that police officer was outrageous," Sheriff Grady Judd said. "Had that police officer done here what he did there, he would have been locked up in the county jail by sundown."
"But Minneapolis is not Polk County," Judd continued. "And I want to say unequivocally that the community here is unbelievable ... But please understand, that if you come here to riot, to loot, to injure people, we’re going to lock you up in the county jail."
Judd emphasized his appreciation for peaceful protests, but condemned those who were there over the weekend looting and rioting.
Polk County’s curfew goes into effect from 8 p.m. Monday to 5 a.m. Tuesday.
Judd ended his address by speaking on a possible threat they’ve seen referenced on social media that suggests riot activity may start trickling into residential neighborhoods.
"I would tell them, if you value your life, you probably shouldn’t do that in Polk County," Judd said. "Because the people of Polk County like guns, they have guns, I encourage them to own guns, and they’re going to be inside their homes tonight with their guns loaded. And if you try to break into their homes tonight and try to steal, to set fires, I’m highly recommending they blow you back out of the house with their guns."
"I would tell them, if you value your life, they probably shouldn’t do that in Polk County. Because the people of Polk County like guns, they have guns, I encourage them to own guns, and they’re going to be in their homes tonight with their guns loaded," Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told news hounds during a news briefing.
"And if you try to break into their homes to steal, to set fires, I’m highly recommending they blow you back out of the house with their guns. So, leave the community alone."
The state poured thousands more National Guard soldiers into a response that came after repeated days of arson, property damage and looting on the city’s south side.
Public Safety Commissioner John Harrington says law enforcement tried to move quickly to break up groups of protesters who ignored an 8 p.m. curfew that was in place for the first time.
Gov. Tim Walz called restoring order the first step toward addressing the systemic problems that contributed to the death of Floyd, who died after a police officer pressed his knee on Floyd’s neck for several minutes. Walz said the curfew will remain in place for at least one more day.
Richmond Leftist Rioters Torched Home with Children inside
[THEGATEWAYPUNDIT] The chief of the Richmond, Virginia, police department told reporters Sunday that Black Lives Matter and antifa rioters set fire to a multi-family home with children inside and then blocked access for firefighters to get through to save the children.
Richmond Police Chief William Smith broke down while speaking about the horrible burning deaths of a children after their occupied building was torched by rioters.
Last Thursday night, Rupert, of Galesburg, Ill., posted on his public Facebook page an invitation for "goons" to join him in traveling to Minneapolis, where he said he was renting hotel rooms and planned to wreak havoc and "take hella good videos."
Yesterday Lex posted the link to Law Enforcement Today, because they’re doing a good roundup of breaking stories on the subject. And I wanted to capture something Iblis commented:
Had an opportunity to watch the riots in one major city over the weekend. I am by no means a trained observer, but I did notice a few things.
There were clearly 2 shifts. The first was mixed race, gender. Many couples. Some brought children. They had signs and water. Demonstrated during the day, then started leaving around 4PM. The second shift started showing up after that. Nearly 100% young male. Masks, helmets, some weapons. Noticed obvious signs of organization. Guys on motorcycles were moving around speaking with individuals stationed at different locations. Vans moving in and out. Same vehicles showing up repeatedly. Once the police started moving the crowd back with tear gas, the rioters went to individuals with bottles of a white powder. This was applied to the face and seemed to neutralize the tear gas. These guys were strategically positioned, and the rioters knew about them.
Kroll also said that Floyd’s criminal history is not being told. The AP has reported last week that Floyd was charged in 2007 with armed robbery in a home invasion in Houston and was sentenced to five years in prison as part of a plea deal, according to court documents.
Kroll said all four officers are represented by defense attorneys, and labor attorneys are fighting for their jobs. He said the officers were fired without due process.

Even my new hometown of Quincy's gonna get some of it; there's an 'event' tonight and I might go check it out. Some Quincy Center businesses are boarded up, and my roommate (local cop) has that for a detail tonight.
Two observations from watching all this stuff last night and the first one has already been brought up - a good amount of these people are in fact organized. Why did I see some women walking around with 1/2 gallon jugs of milk? Because those are the medics, as Any Ngo's spelled out. Two - none of these jackasses knows how to good ol' fashioned fistfight, much less did I see any signs of training, like martial arts. I'm not sweating a god damn thing from these punks unless I see firepower.
Update - they marched up the other street for me. Made some neighbors over there; they were all clapping for the protestors. When the cops closed up the rear, I loudly clapped for them. Get the fuck outta my area and good riddance.
The punks in Brockton were / still launching fireworks at the cops; wimpy local reporters (all three channels) calling them 'firecrackers', apparently not recognizing Bursting Stars and roman candles. Idiots.
Downtown area of my major city is boarded up and looted out. One black transvestite idiot was yelling at the police. I walked by the idiot stood next to "it" and looked at the police and gave "it" a thumbs down and them a thumbs up. I am a pretty big tall guy plus in body builder shape, I can get away with a lot of sh*t fearlessly and none of them have figured out how to deal with that safely, because they are stupid.
I study and use The Art of War, Sun Tzu and with 6 cops and me next to this lone idiot was my opportunity to make maximum impact without concern. Only when I walked away did "it" started yelling at me and no longer at the police, but knew to move my way, then "it" left 30 seconds later, a loser.
[KhaamaPress] An explosion killed or maimed two children in eastern Nangarhar The unfortunate Afghan province located adjacent to Mohmand, Kurram, and Khyber Agencies. The capital is Jalalabad. The province was the fief of Younus Khalis after the Soviets departed and one of his sons is the current provincial Taliban commander. Nangarhar is Haqqani country.. province of Afghanistan, the Afghan military said.
The 201st Silab Corps in a statement said an improvised bomb, planted by anti-government armed elements, went off in Shabi area of Deh Bala district in Nangarhar.
The statement further added that the earth-shattering kaboom killed a child and maimed another one.
The anti-government armed bully boy groups including Taliban ...mindless ferocity in a turban... have not commented regarding the incident so far.
Taliban and holy warriors of the other groups often use improvised bomb as the weapon of their choice to target the security forces and government officials.
However, some men learn by reading. A few learn by observation. The rest have to pee on the electric fence for themselves... majority of such attacks inflict casualties on ordinary civilians.
[KhaamaPress] The ISIS Khorasan, the offshoot of the 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.... of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), grabbed credit for Kabul bombing which killed two employees of a TV station.
The group issued a statement in Arabic language, claiming responsbility for the attack on a bus carrying the employees of Khurshid TV in Kabul city.
An official in the Ministry of Interior confirmed that the vehicle of Khurshid TV, one of the private TV channels, hit an improvised bomb at around 4 pm on Saturday.
The official further added that the earth-shattering kaboom killed two people, including a news hound and one of the technical workers of the television.
According to the official, the earth-shattering kaboommaimed at least six others including one of the employees of the TV channel.
The Taliban ...mindless ferocity in a turban... group had earlier rejected the bully boyz of the group were involved in the bombing.
"Today’s kaboom against workers of Khurshid TV in #Kabul city has no relation with the Mujahidin of Islamic Emirate," Zabiullah Mujahid, a spokesperson for the group said in a Twitter post late on Saturday.

[ALMASDARNEWS] The command of the joint forces of the Arab Coalition announced the interception and shooting down of two drones allegedly launched by the Ansarallah forces towards the Khamis Mushait region in southwestern Soddy Arabia ...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face... A front man for the Arab Coalition, Colonel Turki al-Maliki, said today on Monday, "Today, Monday, coalition forces intercepted and shot down two drones fired by the Iranian-backed terrorist Iran's Houthi sock puppets ...a Zaidi Shia insurgent group operating in Yemen. They have also been referred to as the Believing Youth. Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi is said to be the spiritual leader of the group and most of the military leaders are his relatives. The legitimate Yemeni government has accused the them of having ties to the Iranian government. Honest they did. The group has managed to gain control over all of Saada Governorate and parts of Amran, Al Jawf and Hajjah Governorates. Its slogan is God is Great, Death to America™, Death to Israel, a curse on the Jews They like shooting off... ummm... missiles that they would have us believe they make at home in their basements. On the plus side, they did murder Ali Abdullah Saleh, which was the only way the country was ever going to be rid of him... militia towards civilian areas in the city of Khamis Mushait."
Maliki pointed out that "the Houthi militia continues to violate international humanitarian law by launching drones and deliberately targeting civilians, as well as population gatherings that threaten the lives of hundreds of civilians."
He stressed that "the leadership of the joint forces of the coalition continues to take and implement deterrent measures against the Houthi Lions of Islam to neutralize and destroy these capabilities strictly, in accordance with international humanitarian law and its customary rules."
Al-Maliki said that these "hostile and terrorist acts using drones are a flagrant violation of international humanitarian law and confirm the rejection of the ceasefire and escalation initiative announced by the coalition, which began on April 09, 2020 and there was no response."
[ALMASDARNEWS] The Russian National Anti-Terrorism Committee announced the neutralization of gunnies during a special operation in the city of Songja, Ingushetia Republic.
