Elect Bite Me for prez and have all the military members join the protesters. Every American itizan needs to join the protesters. Burn this motherfucker to a crisp. Rich, poor, every color, sexual orientation it donít matter. Burn this shit the fuck down. If you canít do that, this might not be the movement for you. Now, give the nearest person you see that is black $10. If you have a problem with that, this might not be the place for you.

At least George Floyd had people care enough to film his interaction with the police. If a cop had me handcuffed and a knee allegedly on my neck. People would be fighting to get on the cops shoulders to put more weight on my neck. That’s why I can’t have interactions with the police. nobody would film my death. He would all be for naught.

Vote to defund the police-force the city to pay for private security.


The city of Minneapolis has paid two private security firms $63,000 over the last three weeks to protect three City Council members amid tensions over George Floyd’s death and efforts to end the Police Department.

While the city has not named the council members — saying their identities weren’t public information — the Star Tribune has confirmed they are Council Vice President Andrea Jenkins and Council Members Alondra Cano and Phillipe Cunningham.

“This security service is intended to be temporary and bridge to other security measures implemented by council members themselves,” city spokeswoman Sarah McKenzie said Monday.

McKenzie said the city has spent $63,000 over the past three weeks for security service for three council members. She said contracts for less than $175,000 typically do not need public approval from council, and they do not expect these expenses to surpass that threshold.

The security is coming from two companies: Aegis and Belcom. McKenzie said the companies provide licensed, armed security officers.

The council members have been under increasing scrutiny since they and some of their colleagues gathered in Powderhorn Park earlier this month and promised to begin the process of ending the Minneapolis Police Department. The plans were vague at that point, heightening tensions between people who wanted to dismantle the department and those who feared the repercussions of a city without a traditional police force.

On Friday, the City Council voted unanimously to advance a proposal that would eliminate from the city charter — essentially its constitution — the requirement to maintain and fund the department. In its place, the city would be required to have a department of community safety and violence prevention, which could employ “licensed peace officers” but wouldn’t be required to do so. That would ultimately need approval from voters.

Asked whether the Minneapolis Police Department had any reports of threats against council members, department spokesman John Elder said he didn’t have any information he could share. In Minnesota, public officials who make reports to police can ask that their name be redacted, which would prohibit the department from confirming whether those reports exist.

“The Minneapolis Police Department takes threats seriously and [they] will/would be vigorously investigated,” Elder said in an e-mail.

Cunningham, in a Twitter thread, compared the security that council members are receiving to coverage provided regularly to the mayor.

The city has provided security to the mayor dating back decades.

That security is provided through the Minneapolis Police Department. An officer, who also serves as a driver, accompanies the mayor at most public events. At least two officers rotate on that schedule. During large public events, they might work simultaneously.

It was not immediately clear how the cost of the mayor’s security compares to the cost of the private security being offered to council members. Elder said MPD did not receive requests for security for council members.

Jenkins declined to comment about the private security, saying she feared the story would jeopardize the safety of her, Cano and Cunningham.

“A story about that really makes it even more necessary to have security,” she said.

Cano said she was tied up Monday in meetings about the homeless encampment in Powderhorn Park, and Cunningham did not respond to a message.

Cunningham previously tweeted that he had “received numerous death threats since I was campaigning for either being transgender or outspoken about police accountability and systems change.”

He wrote that he did not feel comfortable providing more detail. “Security was offered to me by the City, and I accepted it because I need to keep my family safe from the very real threats against me. … I believe any reasonable person would have accepted help like I did. It’s unfortunate my family’s safety has been exploited for a news talking point.”

The Los Angeles City Council on Tuesday approved the first step in a plan to replace Los Angeles Police Department officers with community-based, unarmed emergency responders for non-violent calls for service.

"This is the dawn of a new era of public safety in Los Angeles," said council member Herb Wesson, who co-authored the motion. "The bottom line is that the way things have been going is not working for our communities. This last month has made that crystal clear. We have a responsibility to listen to our people, and our people have spoken."...

If you live in L.A., you should move out of it, and soon.

Los Angeles County proposes $145M cut to sheriff's office that would eliminate special victims unit

The unit responsible for tending to cases involving rape, human trafficking, and the physical and sexual abuse of children may be on the chopping block in Los Angeles County.

The county CEO Sachi Hamai proposed more than $145.4 million in cuts to the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department last week as part of her budget overhaul to make up for revenue losses caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Her proposal would cut 1,392 positions within the sheriff's office and eliminate several units.

Sheriff Alex Villanueva condemned her proposed cuts in a statement posted on Sunday.

"The budget cuts announced by county CEO Sachi Hamai are targeted specifically to hurt public safety in Los Angeles County, while sparing virtually every other function of county government from any reductions. The CEOís recommended budget for the LASD from May was $3.5 billion, a shortfall of $400 million from the true cost of running the largest sheriffís department in the nation," he wrote.

"As we have been busy reorganizing around the first massive reduction, the Board of Supervisors are now set to force the community to suffer a major loss of law enforcement resources with a second round of cuts to the tune of $145.4 million. This is literally balancing the entire county budget on the back of the LASD," he added...

Michigan State University leaders have successfully pressured Stephen Hsu to resign from his position as vice president of research and innovation after the Graduate Employees Union launched a campaign to oust him from his role.

This came after the union, which represents teaching and research assistants, crawled through years of blog posts and interviews Hsu had conducted and criticized him for sharing content on genetic differences among different races.

But the main thrust to oust Hsu came because the professor touted Michigan State research that found police are not more likely to shoot African-Americans...
