But not one you get hand-cuffed and pushed to the floor for committing in most countries...

A friend of mine unfortunately shared the Candace Owen's video referenced by Chappelle, without really understanding what he was sharing. It did amuse me to hear him rip into her after she was praising him the other day.

Trump explaining veterans health care

"Sometimes you'll see a building it costs less money than another building that costs more because the one that built the one that costs more, this one looks better, the one that's cheaper, it looks better."

He continued: "They say, 'how much more did you spend for that building?' Actually we spent less. You can do that, it's called: You have to know what you're doing. If you know what you're doing."

The subject of bias in the U.K. TV news has been discussed recently.  It could be worse, Fox News just got caught “photoshopping” an armed individual into multiple images to sit alongside their story about a part of Seattle that has declared itself autonomous.  The original photo is real, but they just took that image and popped it into lots of others to make it look like armed nutters were running the show.  The reality is the guy in question is actually a second amendment activist.

That is so disturbing.  What possible justification is there for that? It was an execution.

the only explanation I can think of was that they thought he had a weapon and when he sat up they thought he was going for it.

No I don't see how that explanation could possibly be from that footage either. Was just wracking my brains to try and make sense of it and it's all I could come up (like Justine Damond)

I still don't get why that means you need to execute them. It's a really strange thing and over there they think it's completely normal. I also read comments on that that said "well he disobeyed the police!" like it is worth of capital punishment.

He was pointing and waving what looked to be a handgun at passers-by, cocking the action etc. What he was reaching for was a BB replica gun.

Still, it doesn't excuse the fact that it was a feeble attempt to de-escalate the situation.

A lot of the lockdown protestors had serious weaponry (looked like AK47s) when they were gathered en masse in public, that’s what I don’t get. Why does one situation spark one very aggressive response whilst the other is passively observed. I
