    Biden staff donate to group that pays bail in riot-torn Minneapolis


    https://www.reuters.com/article/us-minneapolis-police-biden-bail-idUSKBN2360SZ


    "...At least 13 Biden campaign staff members posted on Twitter on Friday and Saturday that they made donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which opposes the practice of cash bail, or making people pay to avoid pre-trial imprisonment. The group uses donations to pay bail fees in Minneapolis..."

    The lynching memorial (if that is really the name) pays little or no attention to the fact that about 1/4 of those lynched were white.

    How about enforcing law and public order? Maybe stopping “protesters” from burning down buildings and looting???

    My dictionary does not equate “Protest” and “Riot”.

    What dictionary are you using?

    Burning cars. Attacking cops. Smashing train stops. Looting stores.

    Not a protest. That’s a riot.

    Well thanks for the update(Least for me) on that incident. I only saw the initial incident and a few replays on MSM. On a little sidetrack, sure like to see OJ get mugged and slashed in the throat. He did it, and karma has still not caught him, only slowed him a tad.

    Maybe Uncle Joe should climb out of his basement and join the protest. Better bring the wife...

    Because I and most here don't agree with your one sided, blinders on BS ? Oh Yeah , the blacks are mostly innocent here as far as the violence goes . It's mostly the Finns doing the rioting. Right ?

    Talk about an agenda, you do have one. Put the focus of the blame on whites. Open your eyes and get a clue.

    Big difference tonight... NG, Troopers and MPD have the numbers tonight, and it's aggressive. They are not playing games tonight - they are actively engaging anyone out on the street and not letting anyone sit, stand or linger. They are moving, moving, moving...

    About time!

    Watch it live. Very nice!

    Well, They're looting a Norstroms in down town L.A.

    Strangely no one coming out seems to have taken a nice suit and dress shoes for their upcoming job interview.

    So you DO know that the two are NOT the same?

    There are protesters and there are rioters.

    They are NOT the same.
