#1 I guess some of you still wonder when I use the term "homegrown Palestinians".

#4 First of all there weren't "thousands". That's a flat out lie. I'll reserve judgement until my Saint Paul "hunter" Sargent gives his no BS opinion.

But apparently the man passed out. I have not seen that on video.

#5  But apparently the man passed out.

Did he not die, Woodrow?

#6 I thought that "thousands" was fishy from the moment I saw it.

#7 Do they get this angry over other violent deaths in their community? Why not?

#8 Was I seeing the girlfriend covered in drug scabs, make-up trying to hide them?

#9 MSM will never say so but I take it that Mr. Floyd resisted arrest. Were the cops supposed to let him go? From the coverage I saw on CBS last night, it's almost as if they want a riot. Naw. That couldn't be. Could it?

#10 Then there's the story of the so-called Karen who called the cops on a black man in Central Park after he asked her to put her dog on a leash. He filmed her and his sister put the video on Twitter where it went viral. Now she's accused of being a racist and might lose her job. Let's see...white woman alone in a wooded area of Central Park with a black man harassing her about her dog and filming her says she felt threatened. MSM making a big freaking deal about it as if the story is newsworthy. I suppose if you want to fan the flames of racism and mass hysteria, it is. I'd lawyer up if I was her.

#11 Too late - Franklin Templeton Investment bank fired her ass

#12 Can she still sue for wrongful dismissal?

#13  Now she's accused of being a racist and might lose her job.

She has since been fired. The pup was taken away and put in a shelter on the grounds of abuse. But the gentleman in question also taped himself trying to entice the unleashed dog by offering it the doggy treats he carried in his pocked for just such an eventuality, which makes her concern more understandable. That’s just weird.

#14 Prolly has a morals clause or bringing disparagement to her employer clause. She threatened to tell the police he (a black man) was harassing and threatening her, which he wasn't

#15 ^ Ah, ok. Based on what was reported it seems extremely likely that he wasn't threatening her.

Perhaps there's more to the story but combining his sister's description of him as an "avid birder" with the fact that he was carrying and offering dog treats on his birding jaunts, it seems unlikely that a normal person would view him as other than gentle and benign.

#16 Stranger gives my dog something to eat, gonna find out what normal is.

Sounds like they are both wrong. She was breaking rules with dog off leash in leash area. Dude is OK by me pointing that out, old folks and kids area dog on leash and to not say something is to allow that breach of decorum. Now, if dude during conversation started offering the dog treats at any time that is an f'up.

#17 Ever been the victim of one of those "guy stops suddenly ahead of you and car behind rear ends you" scams? People in NYC try to pull variations of that on the sidewalk all the time. A couple retired cops up there told me the same thing: Unless they are asking the time or asking if they are walking toward or away from an address you know, don't engage with strangers on the street Period..
