San Jose cops rupture testicle of their own bias trainer in violent response to protests
Published 1 min ago on June 11, 2020By Travis Gettys

California police maimed one of their own trainers as he tried to intervene in an outbreak of violence during nationwide protests against police brutality.

Derrick Sanderlin has for years trained San Jose police recruits how to avoid implicit bias against racial minorities, but the 27-year-old was shot in the groin by a rubber bullet fired by one of the department’s officers — causing his testicle to rupture, reported KGO-TV.

Apologies, cannot copy more.

OMG they shot him with rubber bullets in his testacles! How can people be so hateful & cruel?

Image of George Floyd projected over Confederate statue

RICHMOND, Va. — As the effort to remove a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee rolls on in Richmond, Virginia, protesters have found a unique way to have their message be heard.

For several nights this week, an image of George Floyd has been projected on the base of the Lee statue in Richmond.

Protesters in several states have been advocating for the swift removal of Confederate statues, with or without the approval of authorities.

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam last week ordered the statue of Lee to be taken down, citing the pain felt across the country over the death of George Floyd, a black man in Minneapolis, after a white police officer pressed a knee into his neck for several minutes.

In a building, east of the U.S. Capitol sits the Washington, D.C. Armory. While some use it for an arena, auditorium, sports venue or event space, but it also is the home of the Washington, D.C. National Guard.

Veterans Affairs says it lacks adequate medical gear for 2nd coronavirus wave

The VA's top health official says at the height of the pandemic, the department's 170 medical centers used a "daunting amount" of N95 masks per day.

WASHINGTON — The Veterans Affairs Department on Tuesday defended itself against criticism of past shortages of masks and other medical gear to protect employees from the coronavirus but acknowledged its current supplies may not be enough to handle a second wave.

Dr. Richard Stone, the top health official at VA, said at the height of the pandemic its 170 medical centers were going through 250,000 N95 masks per day — a “daunting amount.”

Now, the VA has about a 30-day supply of gear including masks and gowns but it really needs a 60-day supply, he said, partly to address growing demands as the VA moves to fully reopen its medical centers due to the easing of stay-at-home orders nationwide. To handle a possible second wave of COVID-19, it would need a six-month supply.

“A future pandemic wave may test all of us in our preparation,” Stone told the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A second man accused of driving his vehicle into a group of Black Lives Matter protesters was arrested Tuesday and booked into the Shelby County Jail.

Beau Albauer, 26, is charged with reckless driving and reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon.

According to the affidavit, protesters told police a black Nissan Juke tried hitting them during a demonstration Friday, June 5 in Memphis’ Cooper-Young neighborhood. Protesters said they encountered Albauer earlier in the demonstration and he was upset streets were blocked. When the demonstration reached the intersection of Central and Cooper, protesters said they saw Albauer’s vehicle speeding toward them.

According to the report, protesters “had to make sudden evasive maneuvers” to avoid being hit by the vehicle, which kept accelerating toward the crowd. No was was hit or injured. Police later stopped the vehicle and cited Albauer for running a red light.

So this guy is charged with a felony for trying to hit people & the sneering 18 year old gets misdemeanor charges for hitting 4 people.

New Lincoln Project ad compares Trump’s meager inauguration crowd to massive protests against racism
Published 1 min ago on June 9, 2020By Travis Gettys

The conservative anti-Trump group The Lincoln Project released a new attack ad against President Donald Trump highlighting the massive protests against police brutality.

The ad, released Tuesday, ties the president’s policies to the protests, which have raged across the United States — and even overseas — in response to the police killing of George Floyd and other Black men and women.

"It took almost four years for Trump to get the crowds he wanted,” the narrator says, after showing the relatively paltry attendance for his January 2017 inauguration."

Little more at link. One sentence which speculates on large crowd sizes when shitstain is gone.

‘We are outraged’: Organizers, county commissioner react to vehicle incident at Cooper-Young protest

By WMCActionNews5.com Staff | June 8, 2020 at 2:32 PM CDT - Updated June 8 at 11:00 PM
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) -

Organizers and attendees of a Black Lives Matter protest in Memphis’ Cooper-Young neighborhood say they are outraged by drivers who they say steered vehicles into the crowd last Friday.

Witnesses say two vehicles drove into the crowd in separate incidents about an hour apart.

Anthony Marcuzzo, 18, stayed at the scene while police investigated but wasn’t arrested until the next day. He is charged with five misdemeanors for reckless endangerment and reckless driving. He was released from jail on his own recognizance.

Beau Albauer, 26, was initially issued a citation for disregarding a red light, but now he is wanted on a warrant for felony reckless endangerment and misdemeanor reckless driving.

Much more at link. I had originally posted about this & was told these were felony charges, which was apparently incorrect. Another case of a "troubled" young man? 🤬
