A group of protesters has sued the Seattle government, arguing that “unmitigated police violence” has imposed a monetary cost on their right to demonstrate freely, forcing them to buy expensive gear to safely confront the cops.

Filed by five plaintiffs who took part in ongoing protests in Seattle, the suit seeks a temporary restraining order barring the city’s police department from wielding force and crowd control munitions on demonstrators, alleging heavy-handed police tactics have made “safe protest prohibitive,” as “one needs an exceptional amount of protective gear to enjoy that freedom.”

STFU !!! …

If there is one thing we have discovered to our cost about Donald Trump it’s that he can always surprise us. Not with delight at his eloquence or empathy , or some desire for harmony and decorum , but in horror at some new presidential depth.

And as the sun set over the capital of the United States , the most powerful man in the world had the police fire rubber bullets at non-violent protestors so that he could walk from his news conference in the Rose Garden of the White House to St. John’s Episcopal Church. He stood in front of this historic church , renowned for its commitment to social justice , held a Bible and posed ostentatiously for the cameras.

Just yards away , young people who had been demonstrating against racist violence and the murder of George Floyd wept with tears produced by tear gas and by frustration. Yet Donald Trump , supremely indifferent and even mocking , held high a text that roars love, peace, and justice.

This was blasphemy. In the most authentic and repugnant sense , it was blasphemy.

Spare me your eloquent prose Mikey … You’re full of shit !!! …

The politics behind this sacrilegious ritual are obvious. Trump is in profound political trouble on numerous levels , and he knows that unless he can activate his base he will be thrashed at the election.

HAHAHA !!! … ” Thrashed ” ?!!! … Whippin’ up some of that good old fashion ‘ god’s wrath ‘ shit are ya ?!!! …

That base includes the 81 per cent of white evangelicals who voted for him last time round , and many other Americans who have a sense—sometimes vague, sometimes deeply ideological—that their nation is a Godly light on the hill, a geopolitical product of faith and patriotism.

There’s another shot of the ” love , peace and justice ”  Rev. Mikey …

Senior left behind at Ontario care home after it was evacuated due to coronavirus outbreak

An outbreak of COVID-19 at the Rosslyn Retirement Residence in Hamilton , Ontario resulted in dozens of residents and staff being evacuated , with one resident being forgotten and left behind at the home on Friday , according to CBC.

The man’s family had to repeatedly insist that he wasn’t at the hospital to which the other residents had been transferred.

It wasn’t until Saturday evening before the mistake was discovered and it became understood that the man was still at the Rosslyn Retirement Residence.

It was around 7:30 p.m. when the man was discovered back at the home , alone in his room. He was the only one there.

The outbreak caused regular staff to become infected and others to self-isolate. As such , the usual staff was not on hand to conduct the evacuation.

Those who handled the evacuation of residents were not familiar with the residence , and did not have a master list of those who were being cared for at the home.

Those health-care workers who were called into help were unaware of how many people were present at the time of the crisis. Additionally , they were under the impression that the man who was eventually left behind had previously been transferred to the hospital.

” This was clearly not something anybody would have intended to do ” said Winnie Doyle , executive vice-president of clinical operations at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton , which was assisting with the transfers.

She said that , ” It was a mistake and I heard from the family on Saturday that they were very concerned.”

Doyle said that the man’s family had been , ” trying to contact the home all day and , in fact , I think a family member had gone to the home at one point.” 

Once Doyle learned of their concern , she called the Rosslyn home. Doyle was put in touch with security there and they then discovered the man in his room.

The man was ” alert ” upon his discovery , according to Doyle , who would not provide further details to protect the man’s privacy. He has since been transferred to the COVID-19 unit at St. Joe’s Charlton Campus and remains in stable condition.

In the time that passed while the man was forgotten , Doyle assured the press that he had access to a washroom although could not verify whether or not he had access to his medication.

” We did respond back there for a patient on Saturday ,” said Hamilton paramedic superintendent Dave Thompson , who said he was not fully aware of the nature of the call.

The 52 Rosslyn residents were transferred to two different hospitals , the bulk of which went to St. Joe’s.

” The home wasn’t meeting the safety standards that needed to be met ,” said Doyle , who referred to the outbreak as ” a very serious concern ” given the number of residents infected.

It took approximately eight hours to transfer everybody from the home to St. Joe’s and the transfer was a ” co-ordinated effort ” between Hamilton EMS, police , hospitals and the Rosslyn home.

Doyle believes the man was missed because the regular staff at Rosslyn Residence have already been diagnosed with the virus and weren’t at work because they were in self-isolation. ” There wasn’t one regular member of the staff working in the home ” said Doyle.

On top of that the residence did not have a master list of the Rosslyn residents that was up-to-date , leaving the paramedics and staff assisting with the transfer without the proper information. The staff tried to assemble the resident’s records themselves , however there was another problem which was that the home told them that the man had already been transferred to a the hospital the week before when the outbreak was initially declared on May 10.

Public health officials reported that as of Tuesday , the home had 63 resident cases at the 64-unit home. An additional 20 members of the staff had also already tested positive and two residents had died.

” We had been told by the home that the individual had been transferred to the hospital earlier in the week ” said Doyle.

” These are people who … are exceptional clinicians and practitioners with extremely high standards and this was nothing but extremely distressing to them once we were aware this situation had occurred ” said continued.

The hospital continues to investigate how the error occurred.

” It’s a situation everybody would want to avoid ” said Doyle. ” We’ve absolutely had some learning from this.”

Doyle said ultimately the responsibility lies with the owner and operator of the Rosslyn Residence , saying , ” once you get into this sort of a crisis situation … we need to be very clear so everybody fully understands their accountability and responsibility.”

Knut Wittkowski , a veteran scholar of epidemiology , has warned that the ongoing lockdowns throughout the United States and the rest of the world are almost certainly just prolonging the coronavirus outbreak rather than doing anything to truly mitigate it …

“ What people are trying to do is flatten the curve. I don’t really know why … If you flatten the curve  … It takes more time ” …

“ With all respiratory diseases , the only thing that stops the disease is herd immunity. About 80% of the people need to have had contact with the virus , and the majority of them won’t even have recognized that they were infected , or they had very , very mild symptoms , especially if they are children …

So , it’s very important to keep the schools open and kids mingling to spread the virus to get herd immunity as fast as possible , and then the elderly people , who should be separated , and the nursing homes should be closed during that time, can come back and meet their children and grandchildren after about 4 weeks when the virus has been exterminated ”…

Unfit to judge …

A Manhattan judge on Thursday ordered the release of a career criminal charged with stabbing his girlfriend to death out of concern he could contract coronavirus at Rikers , the Post has learned.

State Supreme Court Justice Mark Dwyer freed Pedro Vinent-Barcia , 63, and 15 other inmates after the Legal Aid Society filed a petition arguing that their detention exposed them to serious medical harm in the midst of a pandemic sweeping through city jails.

Prosecutors objected , citing the brutality of the crime and the defendant’s criminal record.

Assistant DA Patricia Bailey said Vinent-Barcia terrorized Bernice Rosado for months before tracking her to a cellphone repair shop in Harlem on June 29 , 2018 , and repeatedly stabbing her in the chest and back.

The gruesome attack was captured on surveillance video and witnessed by numerous bystanders, according to court papers.

After cops nabbed him , he allegedly asked , “ Is she dead ? I hope so.”

The prosecutor told Dwyer that Vinent-Barcia was arrested in Florida for stabbing another girlfriend in 1993 and biting off a piece of her ear.

The judge ultimately sided with Legal Aid lawyer Corey Stoughton , who stated in court papers that Vinent-Barcia has cardiovascular disease , pulmonary disease and type II diabetes.

“ As a result of his medical conditions and age , Mr. Vinent Barcia is at high risk for severe illness or death if [ he ] contract[ s ] COVID-19 ,” he wrote.

Who cares ?!!! .. Saves a shitload of taxpor money keepin’ the asshole alive !!! …

The Legal Aid Society , which represents indigent clients , has argued in their petitions that the continued confinement of elderly and sickly inmates during a pandemic violates their constitutional rights.

Uh … ‘scuse me LAS , but what about the ‘ constitutional rights of Ms. Bernice Rosado ?! …

“ Clearly , Judge Dwyer felt that a jury should decide on this defendant’s fate , not a virus ” said Office of Court Administration spokesman Lucian Chalfen.

Another , Uh … ‘scuse me goes to to Judge ‘ Dope Dwyer … A ‘ jury ‘ found the asshole GUILTY … YOU and the other fuckups in the legal and political structure decided his fate !!! …

And in the ‘ Since We Have The Door Open ‘ department …

As of Wednesday , DA Cyrus Vance Jr.’s office had consented to freeing a total of 244 inmates.

“ We are in the midst of an unprecedented health crisis ” Vance wrote in a memo to his staff … “ I believe we should use our discretion to recommend release of certain individuals from Rikers who do not present a clear threat to public safety.”

And explain to me how a man , who hunts down his ex-girlfriend , finds ouit where she works … Goes there and repeatedly stabs her … Then states ” I hope she’s dead ” … Gets classified as ” not presenting a threat to public safety ” ?!!! …

He added , “ Extraordinary times call for us all to be flexible , but still to be guided by fundamental principles of safety and justice.”

There’s no justice here …
