Pogrom,

: the organized killing of many helpless people usually because of their race or religion

and Program, unfortunately are misconscrued.

Perhaps Bernie Sanders was a casualty of the former.

I worked with a guy who was a Vietnam Vet in "The Brown Water Navy". 

That is too complicated to post as a snip.

There were a bunch of nick names for the guys that suffered through that.

When he returned home he applied to work for numerous police, sherrif and etcetra department and was turned down because he was told that he would have a tendency for violence.

I wonder how many police officers today suffer with PTSD from Combat who have been hired by local police forces.

Wikileaks emails: Democratic officials 'plotted to expose Bernie Sanders' as an atheist

The Democratic National Committee - a supposedly neutral organisation - apparently hatched a plan to try and undermine Bernie Sanders’ campaign against Hillary Clinton by getting someone to claim he was an atheist.

The Sanders campaign for months complained that people in the DNC were biased in favour of the establishment candidate, Ms Clinton. The campaign even sued the DNC to allow it access to its voter database.

Unarmed care worker Charles Kinsey shot by US police while calming autistic patient

An unarmed care worker was shot by police in North Miami while attempting to calm down his autistic patient.

Charles Kinsey, a behavioural therapist, had his hands up and said he was unarmed when police marksmen opened fire.

The incident occurred after police responded to an emergency call reporting a man with a gun threatening to commit suicide.

Mr Kinsey later said the patient’s toy truck had been mistaken for a gun.

Video of the incident shows Mr Kinsey lying on the ground and trying to calm down his patient, who was sitting next to him.

Stephen Colbert Hijacks Mic at RNC

Colbert just bloody brilliant

Comment by Chris on July 8, 2016 at 9:20am

I think every police officer should read the book "Blink" by Malcolm Gladwell.

The shooting of police is a terrible tradegy as are the 1000 killings by the police so far this year.

Why was England and the Contentals able to get over "race" wars even though England forbid slavery only 50 years before the states.

I think If I were an American of African lineage fighting in WWI or WWII that I would have remained in France, where there didn't seem to be the racism and Jim Crow 'laws' here in the U.S.

Is there going to be another Civil War?


BREAKING NEWS
Five police officers were killed at a Dallas protest. Obama called the sniper attack "vicious, calculated and despicable.”
Friday, July 8, 2016 6:53 AM EDT
Five Dallas police officers were killed and six others were wounded by snipers Thursday night during a demonstration protesting shootings by officers in Minnesota and Louisiana this week, the authorities said.
The police say they believe four people coordinated the attack with rifles, Police Chief David O. Brown said, and positioned themselves in triangulated locations near the end of the route the protesters planned to take. The police had three people in custody and were negotiating in the early-morning hours with a fourth, who was in a garage in downtown Dallas at El Centro, a community college.

Dallas LGBT Advocates Eye Ban on ‘Ex-Gay’ Therapy

Dallas LGBT advocates want the city to become the first in the state — and only the fourth in the nation — to bar mental health professionals from attempting to change the sexual orientation or gender identity of people under 18.

Rafael McDonnell, communications and advocacy manager for Resource Center, Dallas’ LGBT community center, told the Observer he’s scheduled to discuss a proposal to ban so-called reparative therapy for minors with a subcommittee of the city’s LGBT Task Force in the near future.
