In 3 months we'll see whether most Americans condone having angry rioters shut down public roadways and launch violent attacks against vehicles that happen into their midst, while the police stand down.

there are going to be a lot of these stories.. someone taking a loved one in an emergency to a hospital, deciding whether or not to run over a bunch of TERRORISTS or watching their loved one die from being embroiled in a riot.. best way to solve this beforehand is have Lin Wood start suing the MAYORS of these cesspools, individually.. NOW..

So the driver did the right thing by not slowing down. Roads are for trucks and cars, not riots.

It is about time to give these rioters their proper due. If you play on the interstates , you should be wary of on coming traffic. Get off, get out of the way or take a hard lick. I am so sick and tired of these rioters that I do not care what happens to them or how gruesome it is. If they hate this country, go to California, Oregon, or Washington state and stay there. Here in Austin one of these idiots pointed his AK-47 that he probably did not know how to use and he got his ass killed. Good riddance.

Never stop for a mob. You don't have to go through them at 60 mph, but even proceeding a a slow pace is going to push people out of the way. It's their decision what to do then. Move or get run over.

The punches came so fast, she didn’t know what to do. A Queens woman says a man and a woman on the subway turned their rage on her when they discovered she was recording them after they attacked another passenger. The vicious assault left her with a black eye and a swollen face, 26-year-old Victoria told the Daily News on Saturday. She also has cuts and bruises on her arms and legs. “You get punched in the face that many times, you just don’t really know what’s going on around you,” said the Astoria woman, who asked that her last name not be used.

No other injuries have been reported to police; however, bullets struck at least eight occupied apartments and seven vehicles.

Members of a Northwest D.C. community are reviving an effort to remove from a fountain the name of a village founder who supported segregation. The Chevy Chase Circle Fountain has the name of Francis Newlands etched in stone along with a plaque. Newlands, who was a former U.S. Senator representing Nevada, ran the Chevy Chase Land Co. during the 1890s and developed Chevy Chase with the intention of making it an entirely white area. The structure, also known as the Francis Griffith Newlands Memorial Fountain, reveals the words “NEWLANDS MEMORIAL FOUNTAIN” chiseled into the stone in his honor.

The National Audubon Society is re-examining and confronting the racist and slave-owning past of its namesake. The non-profit environmental organization, dedicated to the conservation of birds and other wildlife, was founded in 1905 and named in honor of Franco-American ornithologist John James Audubon. Audubon is perhaps most famous for illustrating birds in their natural habitats and publishing his book, Birds of America, as a series in sections between 1827 and 1838. But an often glossed-over part of Audubon's history is that he owned many slaves, sold them to others, and saw black and indigenous people as being inferior

Bronx Zoo officials this week apologized for putting a central African man on display in the zoo’s Monkey House 114 years ago. The man, Ota Benga, was taken as a slave from his indigenous Mbuti people in the Congo and sold to an American man—who brought him to New York, where he was placed in the exhibition for 20 days in September 1906. Zoo officials on Wednesday described it as an act of “unconscionable racial intolerance.” “In the name of equality, transparency, and accountability, we must confront our organization’s historic role in promoting racial injustice as we advance our mission to save wildlife

On Aug. 1, 1945, 12-year-old Hideko Sudo went to bed fully clothed and full of worry. For days, air raid alerts had left the coastal city of Toyama on edge, prompting her school's closure. More alarmingly, earlier that day, American planes had rained down leaflets warning of an imminent attack. Hideko's fears proved well-founded. Despite a sophisticated alert system and a decade of air defense drills, the arrival just after midnight of a wave of B-29 bombers plunged Toyama into chaos. Superfortresses — 173 of them — encountered only sparse antiaircraft fire as they released around 1,500 tons of incendiaries onto the city's center.

President Trump seems determined to sow confusion and chaos ahead of the 2020 election. Laurence Tribe says the president is trying to make the election ‘look chaotic’ and mentions a ‘fail safe’: President Nancy Pelosi. "There is a procedure -- it's a very elaborate procedure -- in every state for resolving disputes by the date of the so-called safe harbor on December 8th," Tribe explained. "So, really, all of the efforts that Trump is making to both pretend that he can extend the date of the election, which everyone understands he can't do that. That date is set at November 3rd by act of Congress."

How many tens of thousands of Americans must die because of Dr. Fauci’s mistakes? It is becoming more and more apparent with each new day and as more information is accumulated that Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx, the CDC and the FDA failed in their response to the China Coronavirus. Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx pushed a completely fraudulent Imperial College study to lockdown and destroy the greatest economy in US history. Dr. Anthony Fauci has made at least 15 critical mistakes and contradictions since the start of the pandemic in March. Perhaps Dr. Fauci’s most deadly mistake is his response to hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) treatments for the disease.

Former national security adviser Susan Rice would be a “human lightning rod” if selected to be Democrat Joe Biden’s running mate, a Washington Post columnist wrote Friday. Rice, who is reported to be among shrinking list of Biden vice presidential contenders, has the advantage of a longstanding close relationship with Biden, unlike any of the other names on the list. But Biden's want for “familiarity and comfort” are luxuries the nation doesn’t have time for in this singular time of crisis, Post columnist Dana Milbank writes.
