    These police just continue to make poor decisions. Mind boggling.

    Not a very restful night last night. Was constantly getting woken up by the sounds of helicopters overhead and the sounds of fireworks coming from the riot zone. It's going to be a long weekend if those four accused cops remain out of custody.

    I mean 40 million people, mostly the lower classes, are currently unemployed. What could possibly go wrong?

    Is there any hope that shit like this will ever end?

    It's so engrained in the country and its culture.

    Chauvin still not taken into custody at this point (whether protective or not), I believe.

    Also, perhaps this is a good time to bring this back:

    Yep. Not much going on this side of town. A few isolated incidents with small groups hitting a couple businesses. I think I’m running on three, maybe four hours of sleep.
    I have a very busy head. I have inside voices that I have learned to contain.

    Totally off-topic, but now I feel the need to pimp Burl Moseley a bit (from a criminally underseen show). He's great and I hope he gets more work.

    They actually thought that would not get filmed. Whoops.

    I believe they arrested the one who did the killing. Also someone on Twitter pointed out that Trump's tweets are just echoing a racist police chief from Miami who enacted a disastrous policy in 1967 which lead to Miami riots. That man does not come up with anything original.

    It also may be protective custody rather than custody that leads to charges.

    EDIT: Ah nvm! Charges are out......................... third-degree murder? Is that like sneezing in someone's direction who later dies?

    From Wiki: "Minnesota law originally defined third-degree murder solely as depraved-heart murder ("without intent to effect the death of any person, caus[ing] the death of another by perpetrating an act eminently dangerous to others and evincing a depraved mind, without regard for human life")."

    Without intent? Are we sure we saw the same video?

    Man. Been working on boarding up stores all day long, and it's going to carry over to many other states.

    Denver had a near riot on their hands last night too.

    Should be an interesting weekend.

    Would be nice to have a President that didn't add to it all.

    Glad that Minnesota cop was arrested... may he be tried and convicted.

    8PM curfew, armed national guard. Wonder if it’s going to flood into the communities just outside Minneapolis / St Paul.

    *sigh*

    Time to brew a cup of Death Claw coffee.

    My town just announced an 8PM curfew for tonight. I’m more than fine with that. Might be able to start easing out of combat mode.

    At least we’ve got protestors yelling at looters. No sign of the national guard for quite some time.

    If the looting doesn’t stop, it’s going to be like the roof top Koreans during the LA riots, and that is NOT good.
