Black Lives Matter

“The past few days have been extremely difficult for our community and our police department. The safety of our residents and visitors remains our number one priority. We are equally horrified by the actions displayed on social media videos depicting violence and unruly crowds. This behavior has no place in Ocean City and violence like this will not be tolerated. The Town and the OCPD are working immediately on addressing this disturbing behavior.”

Minneapolis Council Members Seeking to Abolish Local Police Spend $63,000 on Private Security

Three Council members from the Minneapolis City Council who have voiced strong support for measures to attempt to abolish the local police force are now using taxpayer-funded private security for protection.
Andrea Jenkins (Ward 8), Phillipe Cunningham (Ward 4), and Alondra Cano (Ward 9) have been outspoken supporters of defunding the Minneapolis Police Department. On Friday, they were among 12 council members to vote (12-0) in favor of advancing a proposal to hold a citywide ballot on whether to go ahead with abolishing the Minneapolis Police Department, following calls from far-left groups to “change the system” following the death of George Floyd in police custody.

Jenkins revealed on Friday the private security arrangement for her and her colleagues that is costing tax payers $4,500 a day.
Over the past three weeks, the total security bill for the three council members has reached $63,000, a city spokesperson told Fox 9 News.
“My concern is the large number of white nationalist(s) in our city and other threatening communications I’ve been receiving,” Jenkins told Fox 9 News. She said that since taking office in 2018, she had been requesting private security and that the current threats were attacking her ethnicity, gender identity, and sexuality.
Cunningham told Fox that the security was only a temporary measure, adding that he had been receiving death threats.
According to Fox, Minneapolis Police officers have traditionally provided security details to city mayors. But with the current threats against the council members, security firms Aegis and BelCom are being contracted instead of police.
The city spokesperson told Fox that police were currently needed in the community.
According to Minneapolis Police, the department has not received any reports of threats against the council members, although a report could have been filed confidentially.
Jenkins told Fox that she hadn’t filed a report with the police due to being caught up with the “global pandemic and global uprising” from Floyd’s death.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best said African American males were killed, wounded by the area that claims Black Lives Matter.


One man has died and another remains hospitalized in critical condition Monday following the latest shooting near Seattle's Capitol Hill Organized Protest, or CHOP.

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best said the death marked the second African American man to die in the area that claims to believe Black Lives Matter. The first fatality associated with the CHOP came June 20 when 19-year-old Horace Lorenzo Anderson was shot and killed.

Monday marked the fourth shooting linked to the CHOP zone.

"It's very unfortunate that we have another murder in this area identified as the CHOP," Best said Monday, according to KOMO. "Two African-American men… dead at a place where they claim to be working for Black Lives Matter but they're gone. They're dead now. And we've had multiple other incidents -- assaults, rapes, robbery, shootings -- so this is something that's going to need to change."

Best said multiple 911 callers reported that two males had been shot in a vehicle on 12th Avenue between Pike and Pine early Monday morning, but by the time officers arrived at the scene both were gone.

An African American teen with gunshot wounds arrived at Harborview Medical Center’s Emergency Department at about 3:15 a.m. by private vehicle, Susan Gregg, a hospital spokeswoman, told Fox News. He remains in critical condition in the intensive care unit.

A second victim, an African American man who has not yet been identified by authorities, was brought to a Seattle Fire Department staging area outside the CHOP and arrived at the hospital via ambulance at 3:30 a.m. He has since died at the hospital, Gregg said.

Best said investigators “found a white Jeep Cherokee riddled with bullet holes on 12th Avenue between Pike and Pine,” KOMO reported.

She explained the crime scene had been tampered with by the time law enforcement arrived and that police investigations into the shootings in the Capitol Hill area, which normally would involve interviews with witnesses, have been hindered as "people are not being cooperative with our requests for help."

"Our homicide detectives searched the Jeep for evidence but there wasn't much we could find," Best said. "The typical things we search for in a shooting like this weren't there and it's abundantly clear to our detectives that people had been in and out of the car after the shooting."

The corner of 12 Avenue and Pike Street is about two blocks away from Cal Anderson Park, where protesters initially camped out in tents to occupy the area first referred to as the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, or CHAZ. The encampment has become more difficult to manage, drawing violence and a large homeless population since the onset of the occupation three weeks ago.

Organizers on Sunday said they’re seeking to move into the abandoned East Precinct, where most protest leadership have already taken up shelter, as part of an effort to secure their best bargaining chip in convincing city officials to act on police reform and other demands, the Seattle Times reported.

City efforts to dismantle the CHOP were thwarted Friday when protesters laid down in the street to block Seattle Department of Transportation crews and heavy machinery from removing barricades around the occupied zone. Crews left after two hours without removing the barricades.

Negotiations between city leadership and organizers over the weekend did not prove fruitful, as hundreds of protesters have reportedly refused to leave the Capitol Hill area.

Anderson's death came as a result of the first shooting on June 20 that rung out around 2:30 a.m. near Cal Anderson Park on 10th Avenue and East Pine Street inside the CHOP. Another man was wounded in the incident.

“Officers attempted to locate a shooting victim but were met by a violent crowd that prevented officers’ safe access to the victims,” Seattle Police Department said in a press release at the time.

“Officers were later informed that the victims, both males, had been transported to Harborview Medical Center by CHOP 'medics,'” it continued. “Officers responded to Harborview and were informed that one of the victims, a 19-year-old male, had died from injuries.”

Anderson's death prompted Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan to announce last week the city would begin efforts to dismantle the CHOP, asking organizers to convince protesters to disperse to avoid police intervention.

A 17-year-old was shot in the arm around 10 p.m. on June 21 near Cal Anderson Park.

“To ensure the safety of medical personnel, police staged with Seattle Fire at the edge of the CHOP area and were gathering information about where the shooting victim was located when they learned he had been transported in a private vehicle to Harborview Medical Center,” a police press release said.

He has since been released from the hospital and declined to speak with detectives.

A man in his 30s was shot early June 23. Police received multiple 911 calls around 4:30 a.m. to report someone had been shot in the 1100 block of East Denny Way.

“Officers and Seattle Fire Department medics staged nearby and met the victim outside the area known as the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP),” a police press release said.

“The victim refused to provide any information about the circumstances surrounding the shooting or a suspect description to officers. Medics transported the victim to Harborview Medical Center for treatment of a gunshot wound to the calf.”

Ok the Archie Bunker approach....arm all the passengers.

Illinois drinking age was 21..Wisconsin was 18......guess where we went to buy beer in high school?
Chicago took a first and needed step....next they need to clean up the police force.

if guns are so easy to get in Indiana, why doesn’t Gary have gun stats similar to Chicago?
 
A couple of right wing racist posters at EOG are obsessed with the crime in the Chicago ghettos? Strange?
a
it's not an obsession.......the blm movement should include all blacks, no?

why is the crime in chicago, baltimore, st louis and others not a priority. seems blm only care about white on black crime.

are you saying the carnage in the ghettos of chicago aren't important or serious....

it seems like the blacks murdered in the ghettos are not important to you.

if blm, then all blm.......

this is the entire point. there have been 30 murders of black people in the black section of indianapolis since george floyd. not a word from BLM. because BLM isn't about black lives. its about "i hate whitey". everyone with 2 ounces of sense knows this. the people still raging are doing so out of pure emotion based on assumptions that all black people are victims and all white people are oppressors. there are 2 names for that basic assumption based on skin color: leftism and racism.

simply shocking, racist libs.........oh my

the clowns in this thread act as if they are immune to being racist simply because they're leftists. that's how far 'virtue signalling' has gotten. as long as they call someone else racist, they are 'above them', and feel better about themselves.

1) create a strawman
2) call it racist
3) feel better about myself because i'm better than them.

that's as deep as their thinking goes.
