UPDATE (6/16/20): NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison declares that an investigation of the incident did not find evidence of a crime from any Shake Shack employees. (Tweet) This article’s headline has been updated to reflect the findings of the investigation. The original report begins here: An investigation is underway after three New York City Police Department (NYPD) officers were allegedly poisoned with bleach at a Lower Manhattan Shake Shack on Monday evening. While policing a protest in Lower Manhattan, the Police Benevolent Association (PBA) and the Detectives Endowment Association said three NYPD officers were poisoned with bleach

Something’s fishy. From the original article: The officers, officials with the Detectives Endowment Association said, were “not seriously harmed” and are recovering at the hospital. The PBA is urging NYPD officers to stay in groups and “remain vigilant for the duration of the meal period.” “recovering at the hospital”? From not being poisoned or given something that would make them ill? (Bleach was mentioned.) C’mon...

No other customers ended up in the hospital -- just these three, who happened to be cops.

Those cops were poisoned. No one else got sick. I think its time to help the cops who are treated like this. Put a sign in the front window. "COP FREE ZONE" see how that helps the business. Its very obvious the business does not want the protection of the police.

He just says they found no "evidence of a crime". Sounds like it's politically expedient to say the bleach got into the shakes "by accident".

The coincidence of only the three officers being 'not seriously harmed' and the blame being a faulty cleaning procedure just doesn't add up. More customers would have complained of similar issues if the cleaning practices were at fault?

"Bleach" is a very unlikely poison -- it smells bad an no one would want to taste it. It's not really poisonous. This story stinks. BUT i think the Shake Shack PR people will be burning midnight oil and earning a few million bucks to try to limit the damage done to this very exposed company. It has ambitious plans to double its number of outlets. Instead, it may need to close all its NYPD area locations. There is good news though -- NYPD officers will tend to gain a little less weight

Whoa - I have a relative who investigated this - Chlorine based cleaner used and not flushed out of the system. Each of the 3 containers had less and less cleaner in them, and it was flushed out with the shake mix. Not a very good recomendation of the boneheads they hired to works at Sh SH, but not the first time I've heard of this.

Not buying it. Bleach smells really bad and they had to know they were hurting cops. Not so sure they will have a full recovery either. Many years ago, I knew someone who drank bleach and never spoke the same again.

A US Postal worker was caught on video throwing a stack of GOP congressional candidate campaign mailers in a dumpster. Sheriff Troy Nehls is running for Texas Congressional District 22.

Attorney General William Barr said he supports mail-in balloting for a “limited” amount of people but is concerned about expanding the process.“I think there’s a range of concerns about mail-in ballots. And let me just clarify here, I’m not talking about a mail-in ballot for a limited number of cases where somebody is going to be traveling around the world, and the way that the state has provided for that is, you mail in your ballot,” Barr said in an interview with NPR last week. “I’m talking about a comprehensive rule where all the ballots are essentially mail-in, and there’s so many occasions for fraud there that cannot be policed.”

An “analysis” in The Washington Post this week apparently sought to discredit a claim by President Donald Trump about violence in Democrat-controlled cities and ended up proving him correct. The Post noted that Trump has sought to portray Democrats as soft on crime as part of his re-election strategy and pointed out the following quote from Trump on Wednesday: “You hear about certain places like Chicago and you hear about what’s going on in Detroit and other — other cities, all Democrat run. Every one of them is Democrat run. Twenty out of 20. The 20 worst, the 20 most dangerous are Democrat run.” The Post reported:

PRINCETON, N.J.— Princeton University has announced plans to remove the name of former President Woodrow Wilson from its public policy school because of his segregationist views, reversing a decision the Ivy League school made four years ago to retain the name.University president Christopher Eisgruber said in a letter to the school community Saturday that the board of trustees had concluded that “Wilson’s racist views and policies make him an inappropriate namesake” for Princeton’s School of Public and International Affairs and the residential college.Eisgruber said the trustees decided in April 2016 on some changes to make the university “more inclusive and more honest about its history”

For about four days, the radio waves would arrive at random. Then, for the next 12, nothing. Then, another four days of haphazard pulses. Followed by another 12 days of silence. The pattern—the well-defined swings from frenzy to stillness and back again—persisted like clockwork for more than a year. Dongzi Li, a doctoral student at the University of Toronto, started tracking these signals in 2019. She works on a Canadian-led project, CHIME, that studies astrophysical phenomena called “fast radio bursts.” These invisible flashes, known as FRBs for short, reach Earth from all directions in space. They show up without warning and flash for a few milliseconds, matching the radiance of entire galaxies.

Voter Fraud: The Democrats’ Ace in the Hole 22 replies

Right now the polling looks grim for President Trump, but the Democrats aren’t taking any chances. Much as the Russia hoax was their “insurance policy” in 2016, voter fraud is their ace in the hole this year. In recent cycles voter fraud has been institutionalized as part of the Democrats’ electoral strategy, but now it is being elevated to a new high. Or low. The current drive, in many states, for voting by mail is simply an attempt to facilitate fraud by causing millions of ballots to be mailed out to non-existent, dead, moved or unqualified voters.
