Tampa police called for hundreds to be evicted. Entire families lost their homes.

quote [ Since 2013, the Tampa Police Department has taken a hands-on role at more than 100 apartment communities, sending notices to landlords when their tenants are arrested or stopped by officers and encouraging their eviction.

The program, known as Crime-Free Multi Housing, was marketed to landlords as a way to keep violent crime and drug and gang activity off their properties.

...

But the program also swept up more than 100 people who were arrested for misdemeanors ? and dozens more whose charges were later dropped, a Tampa Bay Times investigation has found.

...

And roughly 90 percent of the 1,100 people flagged by the program were Black, police records show. That?s despite Black residents making up only 54 percent of all arrests in Tampa over the past eight years. ]

Well, at least it's just an isolated incident in Florida of all places and oh, Crime-Free Housing Lets Police Influence Landlords - The Atlantic

So it turns out this is a nationwide thing often used by local governments in conjunction with their real estate developing friends to clear (typically) black people out of areas to be redeveloped. They make a deal with the police, cops go gung ho and do stop and frisk type shit to poor people en masse, leading to eviction after eviction.

U.K. Parliament report details how NATO's 2011 war in Libya was based on lies

quote [ British investigation: Gaddafi was not going to massacre civilians; Western bombing made Islamist extremism worse ]

The number of people I know who know flat out nothing about Libya but rationalized Gaddafi's violent murder in the streets because he was kinda creepy to Condoleezza Rice is too damn high. We took a country with the highest standards of living in Africa and turned it into a war zone with open air slave markets.

Mission Accomplished, y'all.???

MIT Predicted in 1972 That Society Will Collapse This Century. New Research Shows We?re on Schedule.

quote [ A remarkable new study by a director at one of the largest accounting firms in the world has found that a famous, decades-old warning from MIT about the risk of industrial civilization collapsing appears to be accurate based on new empirical data.

As the world looks forward to a rebound in economic growth following the devastation wrought by the pandemic, the research raises urgent questions about the risks of attempting to simply return to the pre-pandemic ?normal.? ]

Lol, I'm sure we're gonna get right on that.

Who's donating all this money to Kyle Rittenhouse? Police officers

quote [ Officers and officials also donated to fundraisers for far-right activists and fellow officers accused of shooting black Americans ]

This is why Trump thought a fascist coup could work with just the support of the police and not the military.

When the Mob Comes

quote [ People want to attribute the hate to one thing, one moment, one time I messed up, one story I filed. I think people do that because they want to feel safe. They want to think it will never happen to them. If you can blame me somehow, then you can distance yourself from it all. ]
