    Get fucked, indeed.

    As of 2016, the Chicago Police Department cost Chicago taxpayers $662 MILLION in police misconduct settlements.

    Police misconduct cost the City of Chicago $113 million in 2018, alone.

    "The $113 million does not include cases of property damage, minor car accidents, vehicle pursuits, or employment-discrimination lawsuits. The cost is more than five times what the city budgeted for police lawsuits last year, meaning the city likely borrowed money to pay the costs of police settlements, as it has done in all but one year since 2008, according to city records."

    In February of 2020, City Counsel signed off on $10.7 million more toward police misconduct settlements.

    So, when people wonder "gee, why isn't money going toward Chicago Public Schools or toward hiring more police or toward community policing in Chicago?" YOU HAVE YOUR FUCKING ANSWER.

    di Blasio confirms that $1 Billion will be cut from NYPD with $500 million of that redirected to the Department of Ed... But guess what it has to be spent on.

    This guy has turned out to be such a disappointment. Jesus.

    Federal Law Enforcement Use Unmarked Vehicles To Grab Protesters Off Portland Streets

    yeah it's a scary time here, I'm glad I don't work downtown anymore. That intersection you see above is a couple blocks from where I used to work and the building I worked at is visible in the other video making the rounds, the "use your words" video.

    Mayors and governors need to make it abundantly clear that THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CANNOT SEND MERCENARIES INTO THEIR JURISDICTIONS! Mayors can ask the governor to call in the Feds, and the Governor can activate the National Guard with explicit instructions for the Guard.

    Congress needs to do its job and make it clear that this is a massive overreach. If the Trump regime is allowed to get away with this in Portland, I am terrified of what will happen in other cities, especially as Election Day draws closer.

    Allowing? They appear to be encouraging it.

    I'm simultaneously impressed and concerned by the governor of Oregon saying, "Yeah, this is some scary shit, but it's small-scale political theater and the country shouldn't let it distract from the large-scale horror show that Donald Trump and his enablers are creating in the country." I'm paraphrasing, of course. But, um, well...way to have some fucking stoic steely reserve, leader of Oregon. But also, hey, maybe also yell loudly about UNAUTHORIZED AUTHORITARIAN SECRET POLICE DISAPPEARING YOUR CONSTITUENTS!

    I was the textbook definition of ambivalent while watching this interview.
