My favourite part of mastodon is when someone makes a bad post so we all pick up our posting sticks and hit them while yelling "Bad Post! Bad Post!"

"The officers, and right-wing journalists and politicians have argued that this is an ongoing violent riot, but the reality is that these protests have been largely peaceful. On the evening of July 17, there was no provocation that was visible, and on many nights, the excuse federal agents give for attacking the crowds are that people are throwing empty water bottles or insults at the police. On July 22, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, who has been heavily denounced by protesters for his apparent unwillingness to stop the police, was hit by teargas and told reporters he saw no provocation and called the federal officers’ behavior “urban warfare.” On July 25, while protesters had increased their militancy and commitment to pushing back on barriers like the fence, these actions amounted to little more than loud protest tactics, yet were met by crushing force. The issue of “protester violence” is largely one of a right-wing construct.... The violence of the federal officers, ... sending protesters to the hospital ... feels like a false equivalency." truthout.org/articles/if-we-do Take that, William Barr!

Here's an ongoing tally of how much Portland is charging the feds to gas its citizens.

Seems a little on a cheap side to me, but what do I know?
