Some people are out to push buttons and agendas, it a bit weird as in Isis grade fundamentalism and militancy. I think the point is to monopolize attention and distract from healthy informed debate and specificly targeting left leaning engagement.

We’re a little too far beyond that. It’s become so bad that a brother can’t drive drunk, fall asleep while blocking a drive-through, fight a police officer, then steal their weapon and use it against them without risking being shot.

Tesla has become the most overvalued car company in the world.

I like musk (somewhat), and tesla cars are cool I guess, but this will only last until Ford or GM competes with them properly. I'm not saying they'll go bust, but how long will they be the most valuable car company, despite making less than 5% the cars other companies make?

ALARMING: Businesses Are FLEEING Urban Areas Due To ANTIFA Destroying Their Businesses, Oppressive Lockdowns by NewsJunkie in news

Remember that we're currently in the middle of a pandemic, with record unemployment, which is guaranteed to affect urban areas more directly than rural areas.

I think that's the point of the article, my friend. These factors are driving people out of the cities. Both the article OP linked and the WSJ article mention the pandemic.

I agree that the pandemic may be the most important consideration. But you can't deny that the riots are a factor. A billion-dollar investment firm recently cited them in its move from Seattle to Phoenix. A factory in Minneapolis cited them when choosing to relocate rather than rebuild after being burnt down. I can't imagine those are the only businesses deciding to move.

If you can't see that, I have no way to make you see it. You either have the eyes for it or you don't.

This article goes beyond jumping to conclusions, to the point of being disingenuous, and I still maintain that it's not appropriate for the sub.

Daniel Henninger has written a highly insightful article about this alarming political and moral crisis in his June 18 Wall Street Journal piece, “The Coming Urban Exodus.”

Henninger observes that many of the same city centers that have experienced nonstop street marches and significant lootings following outrage over the Minneapolis murder of George Floyd, were the ones already losing population: New York (as always), Philadelphia, Chicago, Cleveland, Milwaukee, St Louis, Minneapolis, Seattle, Los Angeles, Portland, Ore., on and on. This trend, he argues, reflects an ambivalence — at best — on the part of modern urban progressive governance toward maintaining civil order as well as political incompetence and intellectual incoherence.

If you can't see it, I can't make you see it, no matter what I say. But I found this part interesting and insightful. Noting that these cities are losing population is data.

A backlash against the general BLM nonsense. It's shaping up already this will be a politically motivated prosecution:

Bouchard played six 911 calls, in which various parties described what they saw, two video recordings of the incident circulating on the internet, and tried to piece together the chain of events.

Bouchard, a Republican, also went out of his way to make it clear the charge was decided by Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper, a Democrat. He declined to offer any personal opinions of the charges.

Jillian Wuestenberg, 32, and Eric Wuestenberg, 42, were each charged with one count of felonious assault, which is punishable by up to four years in prison. They are expected to be arraigned in 52-3 District Court.

Eric Wuestenberg, who is identified on the Oakland University website as a veterans support services coordinator, also was fired.

There's going to be such a massive backlash against this if the charges stick. By all accounts they are a decent law abiding couple that were backed into a corner by dangerous, racist people that were threatening them.

Check my comment history, both here and on Reddit (where there's 8 years of it). I'm anything but a leftist. Hell, I think this might be the first time in my entire life that I've been called a leftist.

Either way, that's still a baseless assertion and assumption, which has no place on Saidit. Low on the Pyramid of Debate, and all that.

What do you call the territory in Seattle they seized?

I call that "not BLM territory", because it wasn't BLM territory. Also, I can put up "Now leaving the US" signs in my living room, but that doesn't mean you're actually leaving the US, now does it?

This is an invasion of Crips territory. Which BLM/Antifa clearly knew before going in.

If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it's a duck.

I mean, sure, but that's not really relevant here, since BLM doesn't walk like a gang or quack like a gang. If you've got evidence to the contrary, and not a bunch of made up bullshit like your entire thread has been so far, I'd love to see it. I must admit I don't have high hopes, though...

If you like, you can call it a revolutionary organization. Same thing, really.

How the fuck are the Crips a "revolutionary organization"? I think that's giving them waaay too much credit.

Warlordism is what happens when the state loses its monopoly on violence (c.f. the war on police).

But since that's not happening, it's completely irrelevant to the conversation. The police have zero need for the militarization that's been happening over the past few decades, and a 70-90% cut to their budgets is exactly what we need to limit their power appropriately and restore the people's faith in what are supposed to be their protectors.

The results are always horrible for everyone, and the people at the bottom of society get hit the hardest. It's true in Somalia or any other shithole country that this happens in

Absolutely. For two gangs to be fighting over territory, both gangs must want territory. BLM doesn't hold any territory, and isn't interested in "holding territory". Therefore, this cannot be two gangs fighting over territory. QED.

Another one: for two gangs to be fighting over territory, one must have two gangs. BLM is not a gang. Therefore, this cannot be two gangs fighting over territory. QED.

Always! I never understood it until a few years ago an insightful gentleman sat me down and explained that there are people out there who are just not happy unless they are unhappy, or better yet they are spreading their unhappiness to others. That's how they get fulfillment out of life and that's what they like to do. Once I got it suddenly things made a great deal more sense.

If they actually hated us, they'd avoid using our sites. But they're not interested in that - they want to spread unhappiness. And if that sounds small, petty, and pathetic to you - you're absolutely right. But that's the world we live in. We were better off being disconnected from one another and living in our own countries.

Violence is highly seasonal, and can be directly correlated to things like the outside temperature. That's why crime is compared to what happened the previous year. This is well-known; you're telling me this is news to you?

And I'm the conspiracy theorist. Also, I thought the rise in violent crime was due to the disbanding of the anti-crime units? yOu'Re aRgUiNg AgAiNsT yOuRsElF, aNd LoSiNg.

These are the same NYC cops who, when everyone was running away from the flaming World Trade Center, ran towards it.

Yay, they did their jobs once.

Why am I not surprised they're being shit on?

Because you're aware of how militarization of police and police brutality have gotten to the breaking point, so you're rightfully shitting on them along with every other reasonable person?

Your propaganda isn't gonna work here bub. Your arguments are as transparent as your motives.

Don't bother - the rest of the world is resentful and angry at America because they only ever hear bad news.

Most of them are not properly educated on how much they depend on the US. The US is almost exclusively depicted in a negative way and blamed for stuff, while the US is almost never depicted in a positive way and given its due credit. A lot of them directly link their view of their own individual countries to their view of the US as a point of contrast. Because they see things along those lines, and because they want to depict themselves as being superior to the US, they must as a matter of necessity see the US in an unrealistically negative way.

A lot of hate they have for the US is not only a product of their ignorance of their dependence on the US, it's also because of their dependence on the US. They take the US for granted and many of those that are aware of their dependence on the US still hate the US because playing second fiddle to the US stings their pride.

What makes more sense: A cop unit tasked with stopping specfic type of crime is disbanded at the demand of anti-cop protesters. That kind of crime then skyrockets.

  1. There have been high-profile, high-tension protests going on for weeks, so violence has been higher recently.

I don't follow. Why would violence be higher recently? Police have been scaling back their efforts, and police are the primary cause of violence. So the violence should be greatly decreasing, not increasing. You're arguing against yourself, and losing.

As part of an effort to stop perpetuating racial stereotypes, San Francisco police will stop making public the mug shots of people who have been arrested unless they pose a threat to the public. by Rooster88 in news

Blacks have a significantly higher rate of interaction with the police. Nobody disagrees with this. The question is why?

Liberal hypothesis: police and society in general all fall on a spectrum of racism, with there being no "zero". Everyone who is either non-black or in the police is a racist. Even other blacks who aren't following the BLM playbook are race traitors, acting as racist agents against their own race.

Conservative hypothesis: blacks are involved at a significantly higher percentage in the activities which draw police like moths to a flame. Reasons for this are debated. The racist argument says this is because they are black. The social argument says that liberal policy, implemented by the Democratic party (particularly in inner cities) both black and white, has destroyed social cohesion among the black community, leaving black youth vulnerable to criminal elements, as the black nuclear family has been effectively destroyed.

Not showing photos of black police interactions is just yet another tool to support the liberal hypothesis. Note, however, it does absolutely nothing to address the fact agreed on by both sides. Blacks do interact at a higher level than other races with police. Hiding that fact does not make it go away. Sorry censors.

This is incredibly misleading. There is a 358% "surge" over the exact same time period from last year, but this is perfectly consistent with the increase in shootings over the past few weeks (Source), since, y'know, we have massive unrest leading to an increase in violence.

This has nothing to do with anti-crime units disbanding, and misleading fearmongering like this is the OPPOSITE of what we should be promoting on /s/news. Be better OP.

So... no evidence whatsoever. Why am I not surprised?

Let's see what makes more sense:
1. criminals are spending all of their time closely following the status of random government agencies so that they can all get together and agree to start shooting people after one small agency is disbanded
OR
2. There have been high-profile, high-tension protests going on for weeks, so violence has been higher recently.

I wonder what would happen if we compare the shootings this week with the shooting numbers earlier this month, instead of with shooting numbers from last year. Source

How about that! 40 shootings per week for the first three weeks of this month.

How does it feel to be proven completely wrong, and caught in your fearmongering, pro-cop propaganda?

Well here’s a thought, most of these shootings are by people who aren’t even allowed to have guns and got them illegally. Most law abiding gun owning citizens will go their whole lives never shooting anybody, but guess who don’t care much about laws? The people doing the shootings.

I thought America wasn't a first world country? Didn't you revoke our status quite some time ago? We're not civilized, we're a barbaric shithole third world country that you would never set foot in?

So did you just pretend that didn't happen and re-promote us to first world status just so you could take a big shit on us again?

This kind of garbage is why nobody in America cares, or even cares to know, what the rest of the world thinks. "Hey I'm from a country you need to zoom in to notice, with population of few million, and I know all about USA but ignorant Americans don't know anything about me!"

To me this is a huge issue, on the one hand you have the whole China is problematic, which is fine in and of itself BUT on the other you have the ***gle global dominance issue, which to me personally is a fair greater problem. Huawei were making grounds on a non-arsehole device, yes there is an issue with the CCP and buying Huawei made devices as well, BUT at least it was a starting point and showing that it can be done, that we don't need global dominance at our fingertips, in our faces, telling us what to do...

...THAT is called Ideological Subversion, and needs to go the way of the dinosaurs, although it's much too late for a lot of people at present. Even being slapped in the face with the facts, won't get them to change their minds, because critical thinking skills and common sense, isn't taught in schools.

Trying to physically place barriers to viral transmission is a futile effort. Viruses have been with us since the beginning, and they are extremely well-adapted to finding a way to survive. We would do far better to encourage behaviors to enhance our immune systems (de-stress, vitamins, exercise, etc) than trying to continue to "keep it out!" All we are doing is stressing people out and thereby diminishing said immune system. Walk away from the fear porn, people. Death is a part of the cycle of life, and we have little control over when or how it is coming. Can we live with that?

Why was his finger on the trigger?

Doesn't an AR-15 have a safety, and if so, why wasn't it on?

Why was he flagging himself? Dude really had no idea where his weapon is pointed?

If the only reason he had the gun was to show it off... why was it loaded?

The cops go to disarm the guy and the protesters rush in. WHY? This dude just fired a gun a few feet from them and they're rushing in to help him instead of running away?

I can't even imagine the chaos if that shot had ricocheted into a officer's leg. It's a bloody miracle nobody was seriously injured by this moron.
