A group of Black Lives Matter protesters in Seattle are claiming that they’re being priced out of their civil rights by the prohibitive costs of defending themselves against police violence. The lawsuit filed Monday in federal court alleges that the repeated use of force by the Seattle Police Department has made it impossible for them to exercise their right to protest without pricey personal protective gear. “Because protesters now must purchase expensive equipment to be assured that they will be able to protest safely, the indiscriminate use of weapons by SPD implicates equal protection,” the lawsuit says. The five plaintiffs

Comments:

Baraque said his civilian militia would be just as organized and just as well funded as the US military, but behold another of his many lies; the Marxist and probably WHITE "protestors" are sent out to battle without even having the proper gas masks.

Boo friggin' hoo! If your protests were peaceful, and lawful, you wouldn't need protective gear. The cops are reacting, you are the cause.

Ya don't need riot gear unless you're rioting. But frankly, neither do the police. They might as well join the protests for all the 'policing' they are actually doing.

At this stage of the game, who knows, they might just draw an activist liberal Democrat Judge who would happily issue an injunction or restraining order prohibiting the local police there from using force against the rioters also known as "peaceful protesters".

A couple of points. Americans have the right to Free Speech and to protest against injustices... but NOT in the streets. In my humble opinion, any protestor who is hit by a car in the street has brought it upon themselves. They can protest in a park, on the sidewalk, or some other designated area, but streets are payed for by taxpayers and made for automobiles. I'm sick of young, ignorant youth chanting that it is their streets, when they've probably never worked a day in their life and never payed taxes. Also, they wouldn't need protective gear if they weren't being violent and causing a police response. When a protest turns in to a violent riot, police should respond with lethal force. These "protestors" are ignorant, uneducated, and have way too much self-esteem and sense of entitlement.

An economics professor at a public university in Ohio claims he is being censored because the administration won’t let him teach a class critical of Marxism to the general student population. Evan Osborne, a professor at Wright State University, teaches a course entitled Marxism: A History of Theory and Practice, at the Dayton, Ohio, campus.

Nashville, TN—As the 24-hour-a-day protest at the state capitol approaches its 50th day, the cost to pay overtime and travel expenses for state troopers has ballooned to $878,626.15. The latest available figure is only for roughly half of the protest so far, between May 31 and June 30. According to a spokesman for TEMA, the cost cannot be reimbursed by federal dollars because of its type of emergency, therefore it will be paid out of the state’s reserve funds for emergencies. Activists like Justin Jones said the protestors shouldn’t be blamed for the costs. “That is the choice of the governor.

So far, this year’s subscriber loss has accelerated over past years.

Last Thursday, President Trump whipped up another firestorm by suggesting that November’s general election should be delayed, citing potential voter fraud due to extensive mail-in balloting as his rationale. With this latest controversy, we should expect to see not only pushback on Trump’s idea, but a revitalization of the promotion of new -- and the criticism of existing -- various voter ID laws around the country. According to our friends on the Left, such laws are unfair, unconstitutional, and even racist. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has asserted that voter ID laws are “silencing the voices of American voters.”
