My neighborhood is as quiet as it is on any night so I'm looking forward to the rubbernecking omg AMERICAN CARNAGE urban blood lust think pieces about those inherently violent city dwellers tomorrow morning because some of the trashed and high as fuck college kids went out to Broad St to start a fire.

Also someone ate horseshit, like for real...

The young man had a non-lethal head injury, a girl was hit in the wrist and the others were grazed.  So like did it ricochet all over?

A shooting at a Los Angeles middle school classroom Thursday that left one boy in critical condition, injured four others and had panicked parents in tears was an accident, police said.

"She was like, 'I didn't mean to. I had the gun in my backpack and I didn't know it was loaded and my backpack fell and the gun went off,'" he said.

Pretty much, yeah.  they had to do things like reduce school to 3 days a week because Kansas was hemmoraging so badly after cutting taxes so deeply.

A former refugee who came to Montana more than 20 years ago was elected to lead its capital city, Helena, becoming the first black person to become mayor in the state's history.

Wilmot Collins ousted four-term Jim Smith in Tuesday night's mayoral race, capping off a night of historic firsts throughout the country.


Democratic Socialists?  Heh, learn a new thing everyday.  I didn't know these guys existed.
Shooting was an ongoing "Domestic situtation."
SUTHERLAND SPRINGS, Tex. -- Investigators said Sunday's church massacre in Texas occurred amid an ongoing "domestic situation" involving the gunman and his relatives, at least one of whom had attended the church.

While authorities have not publicly identified a motive for the attack, they emphasized Monday that the shooting did not appear to be fueled by racial or religious issues. They said the gunman's mother-in-law had attended the church but was not there Sunday, and that the shooter had sent "threatening texts" as part of the family dispute.

"This was not racially motivated, it wasn't over religious beliefs," Freeman Martin of the Texas Department of Public Safety said at a news briefing. "There was a domestic situation going on within the family and the in-laws."

He was also randomly friending people on Facebook who live in that area and harassing them.  I guess when you are a nutbag you have to harass the entire community where your in-laws live. 

Fucking shitstain...

The attacker, in a Home Depot truck, hit numerous people as he drove south on the bike path, officials said. At least 11 people were reported injured.

Fake guns?  Ok...

Politics and Current Events / Re: Trumpocalypse
Afaics, every time Trump does/says anything remotely 'normal', your mainstream media jumps on it with great eagerness and pretty much heaps praise on the man. Same with anything remotely positive your government does. And I completely understand that, it's a desperate attempt to employ positive reinforcement in the hopes of encouraging more normality from the Trump administration.

I think this backfires with the majority of Americans who are low information voters even during elections and mostly tune out all politics between elections, because it bores them. They don't really notice anything different from the usual historically ordinary media back and forth on whether a government is performing well or not.

They won't understand how bad this government is until they personally find themselves suffering the consequences, and at that point it is usually too late.

Then there's shit like this: an appalling percentage of Republicans think it's a good idea to pre-emptively start a war with North Korea:

There was a pretty striking finding in Thursday's Quinnipiac University poll: Fully 46 percent of Republicans -- a plurality -- said they would support a preemptive strike against North Korea.
That's nearly half of President Trump's party that is ready for war -- today -- with Kim Jong Un, his nuclear weapons and all. (Forty-one percent said they opposed a preemptive strike.)

These are people who are either horrible people, or people who have no understanding whatsoever of the real human cost of war. I honestly find it difficult to believe there are that many people who can even superficially think like that.

It is a little bit of column A and a little of B.
