That is grim. It sounds like he has survived thankfully. There are other videos of the incident, he was swinging a machete and chased after a guy with it when the mob swamped him.

Technically, to drop the ball he’d have to make some attempt to catch it.

Twice now the ball has hit him in the back of the head whilst he was facing the other way telling people how great he is at catch.

Great at catch... The best catcher... Not so much with the left... Crocodile action? wrong! Fake news...

That's like saying that the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand was the cause of the First World War. 

Funnily enough, back when I was in school, it was. If you were doing O Level European history.

Extra marks for mentioning the black hand and guaranteed pass for the phrase ‘a web of treaties’.

Life was simpler back then.

I got a D.

People say to me, how do you catch so good? These guys, before we came out, I caught a baby that was falling, falling off, off a thing, you know a thing. Fell right out of her pussy. And you could see they were impressed. You were impressed? Yeah, they were very impressed.

Don’t grab the pussy, but I grabbed the pussy. Lots of fake news around that. The baby was right there and I caught it.

That baby now, very grateful, he said you saved my life sir, but I, you know, I don’t like to talk about it. Obama would have dropped the baby. I’ve seen him drop babies nobody ever wants to talk about that.

Next question, the black journalist, why are you here why not go ask that dead guy why he was a bad man. Many many black people are rapists.

Anonymous seem to be back with some very bold claims about Trump. 

I’ve seen a few screen shots, but I’m not clicking on links and stuff, because there is so much s**t floating around and it’s hard to get any kind of verification on it.

Some of it’s pretty wild though, I’ve seen one that lists some alleged out of court payouts from Trump In relation to alleged sexual misconduct. Names, dates, locations and alleged amounts paid. Bigley yuge if they have any kind of verifiable proof. 
 

I’m not sure where I stand on the whole ‘Anonymous’ thing to be honest. Taking down local police force websites and hacking police radio frequencies makes them look like they can expose anybody, but I’m not sure they have the evidence on the ‘big stuff’ that they claim they do. lets see.

There’s a whole world of difference between internet claims you have the silver bullet that will bring down the global fascist world order, and actually having something that is real and significant.

I’d say, threatening on twitter that you have something earth shatteringly game changing is usually a pretty good indicator that actually you don’t.

When you see the looting going on in the US, reddit threads showing shop owners opening fire, that's when you realize how Trump could get elected. What a **** state of that country.

Yeah, I agree with this to be honest. There is no doubt people using the ‘anonymous’ moniker have hacked into various local government/law enforcement sites over the years and got hold of bits of info, but I haven’t seen anything credible on the Epstein/Trump stuff that’s doing the rounds. 
 

Playing ‘F**k Da Police’ over a local police radio frequency is one thing, but having credible information that would quite literally change the world is a whole different ball game.

Has anyone seen what Anonymous have posted?

People are saying they've exposed Trump allegedly murdering Epstein and I'm not sure exactly what they're basing it on. I've seen the court transcripts talking about Trump and Epstein that are pretty sickening but I'm sure this has gone around  before.

It's interesting they say they'll expose the names and details of any violent police. I'm waiting to see if they expose the guy the other day suspected of being an undercover cop smashing windows. They've already hacked police radios, so with them involved in this fight there could be some incredibly damaging stuff released.

It's great to have people like that trying to hold the police to account I just worry this is all going to escalate even more.

The MPD website went down right after they released the video.

I don't understand what that has to do with anything at all. The protests began because of a police officer killing a man by kneeling on his neck, and the environment has been inflamed by a 'neighbourhood watch'-style shooting of a black jogger. None of that has anything to do with Vladimir Putin, and I think it's a complete distraction to the issue of racialised violence in America's police departments.

Putin just exploits things by fanning the flames on social media, kind of like someone lese we know

What happened to civil rights protestors making it known that they would monitor the police, whilst legally carrying their own weapons?

American police officers sure do seem to accidentally shoot people in the eye a lot.

So, the discriminated against and the poor are rioting, while politics is being represented by a man who deliberately fans the flames of societal collapse and continues to diminish faith in the power of representative democracy for change. At the same time we celebrate the privatisation of the sky above our heads through the bright hope of the new individualists. It's a Neo Feudalist wet dream.

Yup. Almost as if it's a standard way of dealing with protestors.

At least 285 people in Chile have suffered severe eye trauma, mostly from hardened rubber bullets and tear gas canisters fired by Chilean security forces at protesters during the month of unrest. According to the Chilean Ophthalmological Society, that count is expected to rise.

The image of a bandaged eye is now so common it has become a rallying symbol for the protesters in Chile. Even so, the likelihood of such life-altering injury has not deterred demonstrators.

Huge amount of unwarranted police violence in this thread and the further one in comments, featuring police shooting unarmed protesters with rubber bullets, pulling people's face masks down and pepper spraying them, shooting at clearly-identified media crews, holding medics down by kneeling on them (!), giving a white power signal, and of course lots of eye shooting. Content warning for those who need it (but really, you shouldn't turn your face in disgust to be honest):

Who would have thought people would get more angry when you respond to a protest about police brutality with more police brutality.
