Perhaps it’s because Kenney is still smarting from following her advice two weeks ago when he agreed to delay the reopening of businesses in Calgary and Brooks because they were COVID 19 hotspots. Owners of restaurants and bars that had stocked food and hired staff in anticipation of welcoming customers were furious at being kept closed. No doubt, having to watch Edmonton reopen as planned just rubbed salt in their wound..
When police entered, Walker who has said he never heard police announce their presence fired a single shot that hit an officer in the leg. Three officers Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly and detectives Myles Cosgrove and Brett Hankison responded with more than 20 gunshots, eight of which struck Taylor, killing her.
The driver union, ATU Local 1005, issued a statement of solidarity on Thursday, with some of its drivers going as far as to refuse to use their buses to help law enforcement transport protesters to jail. “As a transit worker and union member, I refuse to transport my class and radical youth,” one Minneapolis bus driver, Adam Burch, told the labor publication Payday. Derek Chauvin, who was fired on Tuesday along with the three other officers involved in the arrest of Floyd, was taken into custody Friday and faces charges of third degree murder and manslaughter, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman announced.
Buck got a bullet in the head, removing part of his skull. Gave covering fire. Clyde floored the Ford straight out onto Highway 71. Go fish: Mackerel, lake trout, herring, sardines, albacore tuna, and salmon are high in omega 3s, a fat that’s good for you. It may be hard to get enough omega 3s from food. Medication might be needed.
The line about what people would saved versus Walmart is fake. Most of the coupons are for brand name items that already overcharge you anyway. The good generics are cheaper much of the time. When are you going to tell them to liberate black people in America?”But following a night of civil unrest across the country, the president Saturday morning again threatened violent retaliation against protesters.Hundreds of people gathered outside the White House Friday night to protest Floyd’s killing and the president’s response, and amid boiling conflict Trump took to Twitter and goaded the protesters writing that if the demonstration had escalated, “that’s when people would have been really badly hurt” threatening to sick the “most vicious dogs” and turn the “most ominous weapons” against them, even seeming to revel in the idea that “many Secret Service agents just waiting for action.”The president also, after threatening to use lethal force if protests escalated, appeared to urge pro Trump demonstrators to show up to the White House on Saturday night, tweeting: “Tonight, I understand, is MAGA NIGHT AT THE WHITE HOUSE???” A move that many in response have pointed out could lead to escalated tensions.Trump’s comments are the latest example of the president’s tendency to seemingly pour gasoline on flaming racial tensions. In 2017, after the massive white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, the president said there is “blame on both sides,” leading to widespread condemnation that he was blustering racist groups.And last summer, Trump told a group of four American congresswomen of color to “go back” to where they came from, a comment that ignited condemnation from Democrats and Republicans.And as protests rage over Floyd’s killing, which many Americans decry as the latest example of police brutality against African Americans, the president’s history of urging law enforcement to use excessive force is facing renewed scrutiny. During a 2017 speech to law enforcement officers, the president urged against protecting the heads of suspected gang members when putting them in police cars.”I think this is an opportune time to really show African Americans that they’re trying to engage that they understand the grievances of the overall community, and what not a better time to showcase that than when the community is grieving about injustices,” political strategist Shermichael Singleton told ABC News.PHOTO: President Donald Trump walks to Marine One after speaking to the press before departing the White House, on May 30, 2020, in Washington, DC.
