A Virginia man who was struck by a falling Confederate statue during a protest flatlined twice on the way to the hospital and was placed in a coma, according to his wife. Chris Green, 45, of Portsmouth, was one of the hundreds of Virginians who descended onto the streets Wednesday to protest police brutality and the death of George Floyd, an African-American man who died while in police custody. Protesters rallied at the Confederate monument in Olde Towne Portsmouth after the City Council earlier that night put off decisions on potentially removing the statue. Confederate monuments and statues have become targets for protesters

Comments:

An update on the man hit in the head with a torn-down statue. I can't work up much sympathy. People who attend potentially violent demonstrations are taking a big risk.

It seems like EMTs as part of first respondors are of a quasi police nature and for sure they would help an injured policeman or woman. The guy should have refused to take services from part of a system that supports police. I guess he just a traitor to the cause.

The video showed insanity. What appeared to be a rabid lesbian woman up on the monument wielding a sledgehammer. It obviously didn’t occur to any of the hysterical rioters that that very heavy statue would fall at some point, and where was it to go? These people are not too bright… I had just said to my husband “what if that thing goes over and hits someone”…. about ten minutes later, we heard about this poor guy.

Always remember that the Daily Mail is a foreign anti-Trump rag, so anything they “report” should be considered from being merely suspect up to completely fake news. If the victim of that Confederate statue survives, he can rightly say, up to the moment, that he was the last African-American wounded by a Confederate soldier. If not, he can be remembered as being the last African-American killed by a Confederate soldier. No doubt the liberal fake news oriented media talking heads will be pleased as punch to propagandize whatever course that will take.

#20 is part right - DM is a British tabloid, reporting scandals both real and fake, and taking whichever side seems most opportune and self-serving in any given situation. Part of the reason they are posted here so much is how many times they were the only place that important articles debunking global warming hysteria got reported. Then we watched them bat both sides of the game during Obama's dictatorship. Why do we keep turning to them after they kick our side in the gut? Possibly because they regularly have great photo sets, comprising content both historical and current. But I'm with #16 -- I tried disabling my ad-block there once after they started requiring it to view their page, and it was so full of ads that the pages never finished one page load before the auto-refresh timeout triggered the next page-reload. Since they now block their content from view with their demand that we disable our ad blocker, I treat the "Original Article" link here as if it were an ad, never clicking on it for any reason.

A 1940s-era bus where a 24-year-old adventurer starved to death in the Alaskan wilderness has been removed after tourists died while trying to reach it. A US Army helicopter airlifted the vehicle from the spot just west of the Teklanika River, where it had been left to rust for more than half a century. The bus was made famous by Into The Wild, a book and film that told the story of Chris McCandless' death after he lived inside it for 114 days during the summer of 1992.

DENVER (AP) — Backers of a proposed initiative to ban abortions at 22 weeks in Colorado have collected enough signatures to put the measure on the November ballot, the secretary of state’s office said Monday. The group behind the initiative, Due Date Too Late, collected 153,204 valid voter signatures, more than the 124,632 signatures required, the secretary’s office said. The proposal on what proponents call late-term abortions would make it illegal for anyone to perform an abortion when a fetus is at 22 weeks of gestation or later.

Former president George W.

This tragedy, in a long series of similar tragedies, raises a long overdue question: How do we end systemic racism in our society?… The doctrine and habits of racial superiority, which once nearly split our country, still threaten our Union. Bush may have meant well, but his words, being inaccurate, aren’t doing Americans any favors. As Heather Mac Donald wrote recently in City Journal,

Why is this case the one inciting mass protests? Ninety-nine percent of the country is denouncing the Minneapolis police in the most damnable terms possible over the death of George Floyd. The 99% are demanding that the 1% “hear their voices”? The arrest certainly looks awful. Everything is going along relatively peacefully as Floyd is walked to a police van, then there’s some commotion out of sight of the camera — and suddenly you see Floyd pinned to the ground, an officer’s knee on his neck. How did that happen? One reason some of us are waiting for all the facts is that we suspect the media

Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin argued President Donald Trump’s recent speeches were a “hateful,” attempt to go to war with fellow Americans.Rubin said, “I think he’s in a desperate position, and it seems as though he’s not even trying right now. When you look at polls, not only is Biden substantially ahead, but he’s over 50% in many of these polls. That means in order to win, Trump has to win back those voters. But he’s not winning back anyone. He is basically playing to that core group of voters who thrive on racial grievance, on resentment on fear.
