Charleston, West Virginia, Mayor Danny Jones says you can't arrest someone for trespassing in a public place. But that's just what some of the city's police officers did. Bradford Sims was walking his dog along Kanawha Boulevard, where a classic car show going on. The organizers had posted signs saying no dogs were allowed. And when Sims refused to leave, cops arrested him. Jones says that arrest was unlawful, but officials say the officers who arrested Sims will not be reprimanded.
Police departments exist to protect people's persons and property. The Minneapolis Police Department has failed to do either.
That rate is much lower than the numbers used in the horrifying projections that shaped the government response to the epidemic.
Plus: the weird new battle lines on warrantless surveillance, more CDC incompetence, Minneapolis on fire, and more…
They're using their Second Amendment rights to protect local businesses from riots and looting.
Are we seeing a tipping point where police begin to grasp why the public is so outraged?
