    In many places the police can now seize property without a conviction. I read recently the police now take more property each year from US citizens than is stolen by criminals.

    Seattle is a mess waiting to be cleaned up... I don't see it ending well for those in control of that section of town nor the alleged leaders of the town. Pathetic mess...

    It was donated. No tax dollars payed out. I'll look into the "seizure" stuff. I think it is a mixed bag though, if you have a trunk stuffed full of drugs Heisenberg Blue then yes maybe you shouldn't have that car anymore.

    To me the biggest issue of policing in the US is the near impunity of cops and how even good cops have to go along with the asshole fuckheads mainly due to the unions. I am very pro union, but with cops it's just a blanket abuse of civil rights. Teachers have unions, and they will almost never protect a teacher that is accused of violence because they know it not only makes them look bad but that that teacher could be a threat to other teachers...

    "Black Lives Matter" parade just marched past my house. Peaceful march. And because we're having our typically NON-summery June weather, more people carrying umbrellas than protest signs. Ironically, the cops were here with their lights flashing, but they were escorting the parade rather than oppressing it.

    Fox News falls for Monty Python joke

    Fox News falls for Monty Python joke in report criticising Seattle protesters
    Danielle Zoellner
    The IndependentJune 14, 2020, 10:41 AM EDT

    Fox News’ coverage of the Seattle protests has taken another hit after the news organisation quoted a Reddit Monty Python joke as real for its viewers.

    Martha MacCallum, host of Fox News’ The Story, was covering Seattle’s Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) for her viewers, which included claims from the cable news channel that there were leadership problems within the organisation.

    To illustrate this point, Fox News shared a screenshot of a Reddit post entitled “I didn’t vote for Raz”. Raz Simone, a rapper, is the alleged unofficial leader of CHAZ.

    “I thought we had an anonymous collective,” Ms MacCallum said, reading the Reddit post. “An anarcho-syndicalist commune at the least, we should take it in turns to act as a sort of executive officer for the week.”

    What Fox News failed to realise was that this post was a joke that played off a popular scene from the 1975 comedy Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

    In the scene, King Arthur approaches two peasants who are mud-farming out on the land and announces himself as their king. But Dennis, one of the peasants, informs the dumbfounded king that he and his cohorts have established their own form of government – which results in a debate about who actually is in charge.

    “We take it in turns to act as a sort of executive officer for the week, but all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special bi-weekly meeting by a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs, but by a two-thirds majority in the case of purely external affairs,” Dennis says, a nearly verbatim quote used in the Reddit post.

    The Reddit user even went as far as to later include the quote where Dennis says the king can’t “simply expect to wield supreme executive power just because someone threw a sword at him”. This portion of the post was not read aloud by Ms MacCallum to viewers but it was shown in the screenshot aired.

    Although Fox News did not recognise the joke, people on Twitter did and the moment quickly went viral.

    But this type of misinformation from Fox News is notable, specifically because it is America’s most watched cable news channel. Spreading this misinformation could skew viewers’ perspectives about what is actually going on inside CHAZ.

    Opinions have differed about the police-free occupation. People with the movement overtook multiple blocks of Seattle, including the area surrounding a now-abandoned police precinct, last week.

    President Donald Trump and Fox News have called the people involved with CHAZ anarchists and claimed they're involved with Antifia, a far-left militant group. But the area has actually remained rather peaceful and morphed into a sort of a music festival, with people camping, drinking, and playing music for others.

    In addition, Fox News used a fake photo showing a man with an assault rifle in the "free zone". I mean, they only approve of that if it is white people rioting over COVID-19 quarantine...

    FAUX Noise lies. In other shocking news, water is wet and the daytime high in Hell today was a toasty 666 degrees.

    I bet you will still be able to get a burger at Dick’s on Broadway after Seattle’s summer of love ends.

    Well, worst case scenario is that you have to go to Dicks at Queen Anne (just a little northwest of Seattle Center). But of course Dicks on Broadway (Capitol Hill) is always the source of jokes, given the nature of the neighborhood.

    Just ask Pansy Division......

    Ah that whole CHAZ thing will fall apart soon enough. Give it a few weeks. Then Capitol Hill go back to being it’s gay old self. In few years nobody will remember it.
