I knew something was off

So the shooter was a federal informant, huh? Very interesting, because they released so little information about the shooter, we all wondered what they were hiding:

You know why, right?

NPW '18 Monday -- 282 Because so many cops would be on that list. The police unions have managed to stop this in most places:

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas schools have been adding metal detectors and armed personnel in an effort to improve campus security in response to the deadly May attack at a Houston-area high school that left eight students and two teachers dead. 

Among the steps that Texas apparently won’t be taking anytime soon is tightening restrictions on gun access for people deemed dangerous to themselves or others. 

In the aftermath of the May 18 attack at Santa Fe High School, Republican Gov. Greg Abbott suggested that Texas should look for ways to keep guns away from people who pose “an immediate danger to others,” which is the point of so-called red flag laws like those passed by six states since the February massacre at a high school in Parkland, Florida. 

But faced with criticism from gun enthusiasts in the country’s largest conservative state, Abbott — who gets top ratings from the National Rifle Association — later clarified that he was only suggesting such laws be part of a broader conversation about school security and that he thinks there’s growing opposition to the idea of gun restrictions.

Rat’s nest

The current FBI director needs to clean out the rat’s nest that is the NYC bureau. Unbelievable:

House Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Adam Schiff (D-CA) said Sunday he hadn’t heard at the time that FBI agents had tipped off committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) about finding Clinton emails on disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s laptop.

“This is the first that we’ve heard about it,” Schiff told NBC “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd.

The revelation that Weiner’s laptop contained emails of Clinton’s, and that the FBI would reopen its investigation into Clinton’s private email server in order to look into them, rocked the 2016 presidential campaign days before the election. The emails were ultimately deemed irrelevant to the investigation two days before Election Day.

On Friday, Nunes told Fox News’ Laura Ingraham “we had whistle blowers that came to us in late September of 2016, who talked to us about this laptop sitting up in New York that had additional emails on it. The House Intelligence Committee, we had that, but we couldn’t do anything with it.”

Sue the hell out of them

Man, if I was black, I’d never leave the house. This is horrifying:

Milwaukee police released body-camera video Wednesday evening of the arrest of Milwaukee Bucks rookie Sterling Brown, a video the city’s mayor had warned was “disconcerting” and “disturbing” as it prepared for a possible backlash. And, in a brief news conference just before the video was released, the police chief said the officers involved had been disciplined.

Brown, 23, was tased during a routine parking violation in January and reportedly plans to file a civil rights lawsuit over the episode, which has been the subject of an internal investigation by the Milwaukee Police Department. Mayor Tom Barrett had promised earlier in the week to “let the release” of the video “speak for itself.”

“During the encounter, Mr. Brown was decentralized, tased and arrested,” police chief Alfonso Morales said, reading from a prepared statement. “The department conducted an investigation which revealed members acted inappropriately and those members were recently disciplined.”

The 6-foot-6 shooting guard was arrested around 2 a.m. on Jan. 26, when an officer doing a business check at a Walgreens spotted a vehicle parked across two parking spots reserved for disabled drivers, Milwaukee police Sgt. Timothy Gauerke told the Journal Sentinel. Brown was initially arrested on a possible misdemeanor charge of resisting or obstructing an officer, but police officials did not refer the case to prosecutors after an internal review that included viewing the body camera footage. A police spokesman told the Journal Sentinel at the time that Brown, then 22, had been cited for a parking violation. Speaking with reporters before the Bucks’ game later that day, Brown’s face appeared bruised and scratched, according to the paper, with Brown calling it “a personal issue.”

If I were black, I’d never get out of bed

Is it just me, the camera phones, or are the cops getting even worse in their treatment of black people?
