Prosecutors are trying to persuade a jury that Allen “Lance” Scarsella is a racist and that text messages sent to friends signaled that he was the kind of person who would fire into a crowd of mostly black protesters in November 2015, wounding five of them.

In one message, Hennepin County prosecutors say, the 23-year-old asked a friend to join him at target practice “for when we have to shoot black guys.”

When he discussed buying a new gun — the one he would eventually use on the night in question — he complained that another firearm he owned “was not killing brown people dead enough.”

That’s according to Assistant Hennepin County Attorney Judith Hawley, who in her opening statements Tuesday in Scarsella’s trial in Hennepin County for felony first-degree assault and inciting a riot, said the defendant’s racist beliefs led to the shooting.

“Allen Scarsella was scared out of his mind,” Martin said. “And he shot because he was afraid he and his friend were going to get killed by the mob.”

Scarsella, now 24, has been jailed since the shooting. The trial is expected to last through next week.

>“My client was on the ground. He was like, ‘Thank god Scarsella was there.’” Jones said. “If it wasn’t for Scarsella defending him, he’d be dead.”

The question being did they go their just to observe, well within their right, or go to antagonize and provoke?

Any racist actions by them before the event doesn't matter. Its their actions during. I guess we'll see what falls out during the trial.

I read they accepted texts ans social media posts as old as one year from the defendants into evidence to support a narrative that they were there to provoke.

>No normal person goes out to shoot at protestors.
Yeah, but suppose he's just a counter-protester and had a gun with him as is his legal right, and had reason to fear for his life.

The question is whether the guy went there with the specific intent to shoot at protesters or if he went there with the intent to protest and was defending himself.

While racist posts might shed light on the guy's motivations, it doesn't necessarily prove he went there with the intent to murder protesters.

All this Russia shit is just the DNC establishment covering their asses. They ran a shit candidate who lost for no reason but their own failures. Trump did not win MI and WI, Clinton lost them.

The fundamental flaw in DNC strategy since Bill Clinton is that its trying to edge out the GOP by appearing more moderate/centrist and adopting conservative economic and foreign policy. This attempt to pivot to the center has gained them zero republican converts and has only disaffected their base across the nation. The result is the DNC has lost elections all across the nation and the RNC has become more radical in attempts to distinguish itself from the DNC.

Funny that is actually the exact Republican problem. Everyone they ran but a few joke candidates was such a right wing centrist except the token joke candidates one of whom actually won (funnily enough one of the leaked emails detailed DNC strategy to deliberately promote people like Trump and Carson in an effort to alienate voters, backfiring hilariously as sober minded strategists once again underestimate public stupidity and irrationality). It was this same problem that lost them 2012 to Obama even though Dems basically voted the most "radical" seeming guy only to find out he was just another Goldman Sachs Wallstreet moderate, but Mitt Romney inspired absolutely nobody just like Clinton inspired nobody.

See here's the thing though Trump technically lost they just keep failing to capture all the rural regions. The main Democratic fuckup is in constantly alienating everybody outside the Cosmopolitan urban centers, hence losing Michigan which in that case even there they just keep shedding all the non-minority non-bourgeois votes and expecting to win on "reason" in other words duplicitous suburban dont rock the boat bullshit.

But see here's that other thing, is that DNC basically sabotaged Bernie Sanders because they were too freaked out at the prospect of some Socialist Jew running and losing against someone as loathsome as Trump, even though Sanders and Trump were both protest candidates who actually inspired people. Now, was it a good idea strategically? Technically yes. I would've done the same. It is frankly amazing that the guy won however I think one major thing everybody misread is the complete erosion of faith in all our major institutions and desire for drastic change. This has been the case for awhile now and it's why a black man named Barack Hussein Obama got to serve two terms even though, by that logic, running such a man in the middle of war on terrah Should've been politically suicidal. But it wasn't. And he won. Twice. I think it would be really interesting to see what happens with both meme candidates sealing the deal even though the RNC also tried (and failed) to sabotage their meme candidate. But the "establishment…

US admits coalition jets "accidentally" bombed Syrian Army positions near Deir-Ez-Zor, home to a major airbase and staging ground for the SAA, killing 62 to 83 soldiers and injuring over 100 despite the fact that a ceasefire had been in effect for almost a week.

>The Russian Defense Ministry said on Saturday that the aircraft which carried out the bombings had entered Syrian airspace from the territory of Iraq. Four strikes against Syrian positions was performed by two F-16 jet fighters and two A-10 support aircraft, it added.

>The Defense Ministry also confirmed a report by SANA that an ISIL offensive began right after Syrian Army positions were hit from the air. The actions of the coalition “clearly paved the way for ISIL terrorists to attack the position and take control of it,” the agency said citing the General Command of the Army and Armed Forces.The Defense Ministry also confirmed a report by SANA that an ISIL offensive began right after Syrian Army positions were hit from the air.

You would think after the whole bombing the MSF hospital thing in Afghanistan last year would've prompted some re-evaluation on our current rules of engagement, but then this shit happens. Not once but FOUR fucking times. Naturally followed by the usual "we regret any loss of life yada yada yada, we thought they were terrorists even though we are able to see what shoes they're wearing from outer space." This is going to add a lot more fuel to the fire that's already dangerously close to spreading out of control. Or it'll just simply blow over like it has time after time. I've got a feeling it's going to be the latter for some reason.

All seven police regions miss the goal of improved investigation results.

>The acute crisis in the police is shown by a falling number of solved cases, longer response times and an increased number of police officers who are leaving the job.

We can now present figures showing that the police in modern times has never produced so few criminal investigations as in 2016.

Between January and October the number of investigations forwarded to prosecutors fell to 120,015. That's a decline of 11,875 investigations or 9 percentage points compared with the corresponding period of 2015. 131,890 inquiries - also a record low at the time.

Worst results show Stockholm Region and South Region. Here, investigation results fell by a full 13 percent compared with last year. According to the Chief of Police the main reason is the wave of unsolved murders and attempted murders needing to be prioritized.

"The heavy, serious crime, we have to prioritize. We can not put a murder aside, comments Eliasson."

More companies also said they plan to increase investment and keep hiring, which reflects optimism surrounding President-elect Donald Trump’s plans of spurring the economy through deregulation, tax reform and infrastructure spending.

The NFIB report was based on a survey of 619 small-business owners through Dec. 28. Small companies represent more than 99 percent of all U.S employers, according to the U.S. Small Business Administration. A small business is defined as an independent enterprise with no more than 500 employees.

“We haven’t seen numbers like this in a long time,” Juanita Duggan, president and chief executive of the NFIB, said in a statement. “Small business is ready for a breakout, and that can only mean very good things for the U.S. economy. Business owners are feeling better about taking risks and making investments.”

I literally said nothing like that you mental midget.

I said, the best way to MEASURE debt is to base it off of GDP. That way, you can get a better idea of the impact.

We can't compare debt from even 20 years ago to debt today by simple numbers, since inflation fucks up the equation.

Then you go full retard...

Look at that fucking chart and see where the biggest debt spikes show up. All of them pop up during wars. Which means, defense/offense spending is our biggest single fucking issue historically.

Lesson? Maybe we should THINK MORE before invading other nations, since it is ridiculously pricey.

But, nah...let's go Full Alex Jones and make some claim that everything is a sham and the only valuable things are gold bullion and water filters...

lets make the math easier then.

current debt is x. debt prior to obama was 0.5x. now it is 1x. that is a remarkable and unprecedented increase. or severe inflation. and in the context of asset inflation(bubbles) and stock market inflation(bubbles?) it is unrealistic to attribute the "success" of the last ten years when so much invented buying power was created from thin air and unequally distributed to the wealthy. this skews gdp, and averages, among other things.

there are 100 million working age americans not in work. nearly a third. this is great depression territory, which saw 25% unemployment, but you simply don't see the breadlines because of food stamps and other forms of welfare.

Obama has been at war more than any other president in history.

without petrodollar USA collapses due to loss of reserve currency.
Dollar is 7 fold indebted.

That's why you need wars.

>The US is able to maintain pressure on other currencies, currently the ruble, only as long as the petro dollar remains the major world reserve currency. This is the main reason why Washington gets away with a seven-fold indebted dollar (i.e. total outstanding and uncovered commitments are currently more than 7 times higher than the US GDP (US$ 17.6 trillion, 2014 est. – vs. US$ 128 trillion of unmet obligations); making the US worldwide the most indebted country – by far.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oscar_L%C3%B3pez_Rivera
Early years and personal life[edit]

Oscar López Rivera was born in San Sebastián, Puerto Rico,[6][7][8] on January 6, 1943. His family moved to the mainland United States when he was nine years old. At the age of 14, he moved to Chicago to live with a sister. At age 18 he was drafted into the army and served in the Vietnam War and awarded the Bronze Star. When he returned to Illinois from the war in 1967, he found that drugs, unemployment, housing, health care and education in the Puerto Rican community had reached dire levels and set to work in community organizations to improve the quality of life for Puerto Ricans.[9]

He was a well-respected community activist and an independence leader for many years prior to his arrest.[10] Oscar worked in the creation of both the Puerto Rican High School and the Puerto Rican Cultural Center. He was also involved in the struggle for bilingual education in public schools and to force universities to actively recruit Latino students, staff, and faculty. He worked on ending discrimination in public utilities.[9]

López Rivera was one of the founders of La Escuelita Puertorriqueña, now known as the Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos High School and the Juan Antonio Corretjer Puerto Rican Cultural Center. He was a community organizer for the Northwest Community Organization (NCO), ASSPA, ASPIRA and the 1st Congregational Church of Chicago. He helped to found FREE, a half-way house for convicted drug addicts, and ALAS, an educational program for Latino prisoners at Stateville Prison in Illinois.[11]

FALN involvement and trial[edit]

The Federal district court in the Northern District of Illinois[12] convicted López Rivera for seditious conspiracy and other charges stemming from his participation in the Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional (FALN), a Marxist-Leninist organization which allegedly sought to transform Puerto Rico into a communist state during the 1970s.[13][14][page needed]

Yeah, why anyone still believes Trump is fighting for the common man after seeing his cabinet is beyond me. I can barely understand falling for his rhetoric during the campaign, but now? Jesus, get it together. You got fooled and elected a billionaire scumbag to the White House. Great job.

>uh, I didn't have a question.
Sorry, I had you pegged as OP for some reason, while In fact you were solid advice.

What i would say in general is that media is as varied as the societies that produce it. There is no baseline media. Read about your country in other country's media. It's almost always entertaining and sometimes eye-opening. I wish my country was interesting and/or important enough to warrant coverage in the news of other countries more often... plus everyone does English these days. Americans have it pretty fucking made when it comes to other counties talking about them in their own language. Just sayin..

But it's more than likely that it's real, they always show billboards like that in docus on Iran. Anti American stuff and very overt.
This is a state where homosexuality is illegal and enforced with the death penalty.

Techically it's not true. I you strongly believe that you a gay man, they just make you chop of your dick and dress like a woman all of your life, if you refuse they just send you to jail for the rest of your life. So, no what your saying is not true
No, with Saudia Arabia in the other hand, they will kill your ass.

This.

We have news channels every day where they make shit up about Iran, accuse them of things, say they should be invaded, etc. This doesn't affect the talks, either.
