Ukraine brewery switches to making Molotov cocktails!


From the comments:
Medvedev is on the lap. Yanukovich is in the mouse suit -- that's prev Ukrainian president that ran away in 2014 after screwing up our EU application. The sign says, "I am legitimate, I am alive" -- that's what he was saying when riots against him have started

The former suburban Minneapolis police officer convicted of manslaughter for fatally shooting Daunte Wright during a traffic stop last April was sentenced to two years in prison in a Hennepin County courtroom Friday.

A Hennepin County jury in late December found Kim Potter guilty of first- and second-degree manslaughter for shooting Wright, a 20-year-old unarmed Black man in the Minneapolis suburb of Brooklyn Center last April.

He did it for the experience and to help out, he said, not for the money. As soon as the cafeteria was renamed the SPA 68 Cafe after his NFL uniform number, students and parents said they right away saw a difference in the $3.50 lunch menu.

Slices of pizza with salty tomato sauce and greasy cheese were history, as were chicken nuggets, french fries and sugary desserts.
They had been replaced by smoked carnitas, mashed cauliflower, a salad bar and Korean beef bulgogi — a dish most of the kids had never tasted.
