    I've said on other threads in the past that there were people that voted for Trump that didn't agree with him and held their noses in the booth. That is no longer the case.

    At this point, I don't see how anyone can support Trump without pretty much declaring "racism is okay with me."

    That's before we even talk about mental-illness caliber narcissism.

    Good. The lies and false stories that have come out from the media on this case are overwhelming.

    1. It was never a chokehold. The officer was trying to use what was called a Lateral Vascular Neck Restraint aka a sleeper hold. You see these all the time in UFC / MMA fights. Properly applied there is no pressure on the airway as all pressure goes on the arteries on either side of the neck restricting blood flow to the brain and it makes the person go woozy or pass out. As I said its an extremely COMMON type of submission hold used in UFC / MMA while actual chokeholds are banned there. Here is a video demonstrating it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lbf1kfVZPo0

    2. He didn't die of any kind of chokehold. He had a heart attack. Shortness of breath is common in that.

    3. Everyone goes "it was just selling cigarettes." Yes but it was something he had been warned about and charged with many times before. He was also doing it right in front of businesses depriving them of their lawful sales and the business had called in repeated complaints on him. If saying "nope" was a valid way to get out of being charged no one would ever be charged with anything.

    It was a tragic event for sure. There is a valid argument to be made that the Lateral Vascular Neck Restraint is difficult to apply on someone taller than you but he was never trying to choke him out.

    Yesterday, there was a big victory in terms of systemic racism in the US. A federal judge illustrated how justice combats racism. He ordered the founder and editor of a neo-Nazi website to pay $14 million to a Jewish real estate agent in Montana.

    Resisting racism in America.

    I am sorry. If my mother was alive, I'd probably have to say something very similar.

    Deplorables: "They're breaking the law!"

    People who actually know things: "Actually, seeking asylum is legal."

    Our asylum policy is going to be so completely and totally fucked by the time Trump leaves office, I hesitate to guess how the Dems will go about fixing it.

    Oh, hey! Maybe that's how we're gonna sneak in open borders!
