Officials said that after two decades of war, it was clear to the President th...

Re: Here We Go Again (Minneapolis, MN)

BCPD policy states that they are worn on the other weak side of the body. The police chief confirmed yesterday. Also confirmed that she was a "very senior" member of the force and has undergone numerous trainings per year over their use. I have no doubt she intended to use her taser, but ...

I interpreted Andy's reference to peaceful protesting to be tongue-in-cheek. Maybe he should have put it in parenthesis or added an emoji. Peaceful protests are fine, they bring attention to a problem and hopefully force elected officials to address it rationally. It's the riots and looting that ar...

Could be out of precaution due to the blood clot issue in the European vaccine, but I agree, keep injecting as many people with whatever they want so long as they want it. Well, it's the same type of vaccine as the Astra-Zeneca one, so it's reasonable to think there could be blood clots. But like I...
