blizzard backed down (for the most part). seems like there was more of a backlash than they expected.

If they didn't expect armageddon-level Internet backlash, they weren't paying attention.

the above was a response to a protest after the police killed a man during an arrest by taking a knee on his neck for 5 minutes.

It's been a bad run for Twin Cities police the last few years.  This killing, the Australian-American lady in 2017, the guy in his car in 2016...

It's the nonchalant way the cop keeps his hand in his pocket while kneeling on someone's neck that got me yesterday when seeing the video and now in this picture. It creeps me out.

Riots in Minneapolis for the second night last night. started again around 2pm this afternoon at several places in Minneapolis and Saint Paul. Bunch of businesses closing early and boarding up. We closed early today. Sitting in my backyard listening to a consistent stream of sirens. :(

I gotta say, I sure hope all this ends Amy Klobuchar's career as a big fat spotlight is shone on her prosecutorial record in Minneapolis and her refusal to prosecute cops... including Derick Chauvin himself.

Yeah that ship has sailed. 

Edit: she may be able to hold onto her senate seat but she’s done as a potential VP candidate.

Unlikely he’ll get away with the classic “I used deadly force because I was afraid for my life” defense, I suppose.
