Based DeSantis makes it legal to run over Protestors

No.695026 ViewReplyOriginalReport

Florida leaders plan to crack down on protesters involved in what Gov. Ron DeSantis called “disorderly assemblies,” including making it a felony to block a road, topple monuments or gather in a small group where violence breaks out.

DeSantis on Monday proposed a tough new law, which opponents swiftly labeled unconstitutional, in response to demonstrations that erupted nationwide after the death of George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer. The legislation will be filed for the next session that convenes in March.

The law would include minimum six-month jail terms for anyone found guilty of throwing an object at law enforcement officers. It would also define as felonies blocking roadways, taking down monuments, or harassing people in public, among other things.

Seven or more people “involved in an assembly [that causes] damage to property or injury to other persons" would be committing a felony, and city and counties that try to defund the police would lose their state funding.

Another provision would shield drivers from liability “for injury and death caused if fleeing for safety from a mob.”

‘Unfathomable’: US death toll from the Trump Vrius hits 200,000

No.695590 ViewReplyOriginalReport

The U.S. death toll from the coronavirus topped 200,000 Tuesday, by far the highest in the world, hitting the once-unimaginable threshold six weeks before an election that is certain to be a referendum in part on President Donald Trump’s handling of the crisis.

“It is completely unfathomable that we’ve reached this point,” said Jennifer Nuzzo, a Johns Hopkins University public health researcher, eight months after the scourge first reached the world’s richest nation, with its state-of-the-art laboratories, top-flight scientists and stockpiles of medical supplies.

The number of dead is equivalent to a 9/11 attack every day for 67 days. It is roughly equal to the population of Salt Lake City or Huntsville, Alabama.

And it is still climbing. Deaths are running at close to 770 a day on average, and a widely cited model from the University of Washington predicts the U.S. toll will double to 400,000 by the end of the year as schools and colleges reopen and cold weather sets in. A vaccine is unlikely to become widely available until 2021.

“The idea of 200,000 deaths is really very sobering, in some respects stunning,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government’s top infectious-disease expert, said on CNN.

The bleak milestone was reported by Johns Hopkins, based on figures supplied by state health authorities. But the real toll is thought to be much higher, in part because many COVID-19 deaths were probably ascribed to other causes, especially early on, before widespread testing.

Trump said it was “a shame” the U.S. reached that number but argued the toll could have been much worse.

“I think if we didn’t do it properly and do it right, you’d have 2.5 million deaths,” Trump told reporters at the White House before leaving for a campaign rally in Pittsburgh. He added that the United States is now “doing well” and “the stock market is up.”

Boris Johnson locks down UK again over Corona fears

No.695201 ViewReplyOriginalReport

U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Tuesday that Britain was at a “perilous turning point” and that he had to act now to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

In a marked change in tone, Johnson reversed the lifting of lockdown measures in the country, telling people to work from home once again if possible.

He warned that the new measures, which include the early closing of pubs and restaurants from Thursday, could be in place for up to six months.

It comes after a surge in coronavirus cases in recent days which have led to localized lockdown measures in parts of northern England. Groups of more than six people are also no longer allowed to meet up.

To date, the country has reported over 400,000 coronavirus cases and 41,877 related deaths, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.

Judge bans Detroit police tactics against protesters

No.686879 ViewReplyOriginalReport

DETROIT -- A federal judge late Friday temporarily barred Detroit police from using tear gas, rubber bullets, batons, shields, chokeholds or sound cannons against peaceful Black Lives Matter protesters after a group accused the city for excessive force.

U.S. District Court Judge Laurie Michelson partially granted a temporary restraining order filed Monday by Detroit Will Breathe against the city of Detroit, accusing police of using excessive force to deter protesters from practicing their free speech rights. The order will be in effect for at least 14 days.

“It’s a win but the fight continues,” said Jack Schulz, who filed the lawsuit for Detroit Will Breathe. “For a short period, we know that the police will not be able to use the brutal tactics they have in the past against peaceful protesters without violating a court order.”

Meanwhile, Police Chief James Craig said the order won't change how his department handles protests because officers have used force only when protesters weren't peaceful.

A spokesman for the city of Detroit didn't immediately have a response to Friday's ruling

After reviewing videos of police interactions with protesters, Michelson determined that some protesters could win their case.

“These videos, buttressed by the testimonial evidence, establishes that at least some Plaintiffs have a likelihood of success on their claims that the DPD used excessive force against them,” she wrote.

The lawsuit, filed Monday in U.S. District Court, alleges that Detroit police used batons, shields and rubber bullets to crack bones, cause lumps and concussions, collapse lungs other injuries that left protesters hospitalized and disoriented during demonstrations that started on May 29, days after Minneapolis police killed George Floyd.

The president needs to enact pessimal federal laws to the Florida Governors proposed laws.

One other thing he can do is pass a law allowing personal lawsuits against governors and Mayors and City/county councils members of jurisdiction not enforcing laws.
