A lawsuit filed against the Loveland, Colo. police department claims that officers broke the arm and dislocated the shoulder of Karen Garner, a 73-year-old dementia patient, while arresting her for walking out of Walmart with $13.88 worth of groceries.
"Hear the pop?" one officer says.
"What did you pop?" asks another.
"I think it was her shoulder," the first officer responds. …
"Can you stop it now?" one officer says as they watch the body camera footage of the arrest. "I hate it."
"I love it," another officer says, with a laugh. "This is great."
It's hard to think of a better measures of totalitarianism than the percentage of the population a state keeps incarcerated along with its investment in policing.

Good job, everyone. This powerful display of corporate backbone will certainly make ransomware attacks against major infrastructure much less attractive in future.

"Two men who were being detained in an immigration van which was surrounded by protesters have been released.
The move followed a standoff between police officers and protesters in Kenmure Street on Glasgow's southside.
Early on Thursday people surrounded the Home Office vehicle believed to contain two immigrants who had been removed from a flat.
Hundreds gathered in the area, with one man crawling under the van to prevent it form moving.
Some of the protesters were heard shouting "let our neighbours go"."
YOOO. this is anti racism in action. fighting the fascist internal border guards who drag people away in vans to take them to camps. and they won. the men have been let go because people banned together to fight back against this fascism
It said: "In order to protect the safety, public health and well-being of all people involved in the detention and subsequent protest in Kenmure Street, Pollokshields, today, Ch Supt Mark Sutherland has, following a suitable risk assessment, taken the operational decision to release the men detained by UK Immigration Enforcement back into their community meantime.
Not all Jews are Israelis, not all Israelis are Jews, the Israeli state is a brutal apartheid state and the west bank is a ghetto separated from Israel by a militarized wall on the basis of the religion practiced on either side of this wall. The Israeli state is controlled by extreme religious zealots that are committing genocide against the Palestinian people. The people that inhabit Israel are not their government anymore that we in the US are ours, but many are in favor of this genocide.
Claim: The world has appreciated our handling of the pandemic.
Truth: Nobody has. The general consensus, summed up Dr. Anthony Fauci, is that we let our guard down, became smug and let the Second Wave kill off so many of our people.
We screwed up because our vaccine program is in the hands of pompous, incompetent idiots and the government put politics and image-building over the lives of Indians.
And so, people died.

Forests as big as France have grown back since 2000, research shows
The study found the Atlantic Forest in Brazil regained an estimated 4.2 million hectares — an area roughly the size of the Netherlands — since 2000, something it described as a success story.
