Breaking Scoops

Plot. Plan. Strategize. Organize. Mobilize.

The goal of any revolution should be to change the dynamics of a society for the better. Create a society based off of love and compassion instead of institutionalized fear and repression.

The country is literally on fire. People are fed up w/ black folks & people of color being treated unfairly — a suffocating racism. And, the White House called a lid at 11:32 am so we aren’t expected to see President Trump today. But, he is tweeting — lashing out at Democrats.

"I'M NOT FIGHTING": Tom Aviles, an award-winning photographer with CBS Minnesota, was arrested and struck by a rubber bullet while covering protests in Minneapolis.

No one is safe from police brutality. Even on your own land, they tell you to "go inside". Does the state own your house? Do the enforcers of the oligarchy have the right to shoot pepper balls at you for being on your own property? Or are you owned?

Scoops of the Day

Amazing scene unfolding in Flint, Twp, Michigan. Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson has joined protesters in a peaceful march. Read More: @MichStatePolice  @gretchenwhitmer 

We’re drowning in videos of police abuse: cops cars running over protestors, an officer shoving a petite woman so hard she had a seizure, cops shooting rubber bullets at reporters on live TV. It’s clear who is escalating violence.

A security expert says intelligence reports indicate most of the hard-core protesters in Minneapolis are far-left or anarchists, and that far-right groups have not yet made a significant appearance.

George Floyd's brother, Philonise, on his conversation w/ Pres Trump on @MSNBC : "It was so fast. He didn't give me the opportunity to even speak. It was hard. I was trying to talk to him but he just kept like pushing me off like 'I don’t want to hear what you’re talking about.'"

The Attorney General failed to acknowledge the white nationalists involved in the protests, as warned by every Minnesota official who has spoken today.

AG Bill Barr: “In many places, it appears the violence is planned, organized & driven by anarchtic left extremist groups—far left extremist groups using Antifa-like tactics.”

honestly don’t know how one watches any of these videos and don’t see how the police are wildly escalating the situation whenever they can. hell, showing up in paramilitary gear is itself an escalation.

If the police can't restrain themselves and are shooting reporters, kicking protesters, punching protesters, and engaging in violence - how can anyone expect the people to restrain themselves? People are done being brutalized and murdered.

This is pretty much exactly how how I imagined Trump’s America.

A hell of a lot of journalists across the country were targeted by police tonight, despite reportedly identifying themselves as such. We need to have a talk about this.


Scoops of the Week

It’s almost like, I don’t know, Americans been told several times a week for 3.5 years that reporters are the enemies of the people.

Andrea Jenkins, vice president of Minneapolis City Council, says George Floyd and Officer Chauvin worked at restaurant near Third Precinct. "They were coworkers for a very long time."

It is estimated that the Boston Tea Party, the riot that gave birth to this country, resulted in $1.7 million dollars (in today’s dollars) in property damage (tea). I’m just going to leave this right here for whoever needs to read it.

As a reporter, I’ve been detained in Iran, spied on in China, and followed and harassed in Russia. I’ve never had colleagues arrested and handcuffed while doing their job here in the US.

St. Paul, MN Mayor Melvin Carter says every person arrested in his city last night was from out of state.
