Yep, they not only look and feel different, but are holstered on opposite sides, all to help "confusing" the two (if that's indeed what happened).

Minorities get pulled over for such BS reasons.

We should at least keep the facts straight, because doing otherwise plays into bullshit narratives that weaken the case against asshole cops.

He did not get pulled over for an air freshener. He got pulled over for an expired license plate.

(ok, truthfully, he got pulled over for driving while black, but you know what I mean)

Sorry.  That's what I get for trusting social media.  I've edited my post, because there's already too much bullshit in this world; I don't mean to add to it.

Someone in SW Mpls called the cops on the armed National Guard personnel. Do I laugh or cry?

Verdict on Chauven coming in an hour. Everyplace around where I work has plywood up. Here’s hoping it’s not needed.

Guilty on all three charges.  Now we can expect an appeal.  Still, it is very good news.

I watched some Fox News yesterday after the verdict just to get the perspective from the other side.  I had to turn it off after about 15 minutes.  All they were talking about was how there is America isn't racist, there's no systemic racism in America, white people aren't racist, etc, etc... It was disgusting.  Of course all the people saying this were white.

Housing costs are a massive problem it most places these days. A true problem.

Here is another way to view it, the red/blue is for which political party is in power at the time.  FYI here red is centre left, blue is centre right.   When viewed this way its absolutely stupid.  I know people whose houses make twice as much money than they do in income.
