[FOXNEWS] Fox News has obtained a series of disturbing videos showing mob-style attacks in downtown Minneapolis in which police say "vulnerable" victims were targeted and brutally beaten for valuables such as cellphones. The videos appear to show hate crimes by blacks on whites. The media won't say that
Police told Fox News that an "incredible" law enforcement investigation led to the arrest of 16 people in connection to the videos. They face assault and robbery charges, among others.
In one daytime video, a mob can be seen pummeling a man just outside of the Minneapolis Twins’ stadium. At one point, the attackers run to gain speed and jump on the victim. They ride a bike over him, take off his pants and beat him with a belt. The victim appears to defend himself but is outnumbered and overpowered.
In another gruesome video, two young men appear to be attacked. They’re punched in the face and appear to fight back. One is knocked unconscious.
In a third video, a young man is surrounded by a mob and beaten unconscious. The video appears to show something being taken from his pocket once he’s on the ground.
All of these videos are emerging as the city of Minneapolis is dealing with a crippling shortage of coppers. The chief of police, Medaria Arradondo, has requested 400 additional officers over the next few years to make up for the shortage.
However, there is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened... some members of Minneapolis’ City Council argue against the money going toward additional officers. Instead, they say the money should go toward other law enforcement and safety programs.
The city’s mayor, Jacob Frey, has proposed adding 14 additional officers to the force.
Fourteen instead of four hundred? A bold and interesting approach, to be sure.
Police told Fox News the mayor is supportive of the department and the new policing strategies in the city’s downtown.
The shortage of police is so staggering that over the past year the police department was unable to immediately send a squad car to 6,776 priority one emergencies. That includes situations like shots fired, stabbings and sexual assaults. A Minneapolis police website says priority one calls involve "an imminent threat to personal safety, or the loss or damage to property exists."
Even worse, police were unable to immediately respond to seven "priority zero" calls, including a baby not breathing and a fellow officer facing imminent danger. Priority zero calls, according to the Minneapolis police website, "include those situations where a known crisis exists that threatens the life of an individual. This is the highest possible priority and the fastest possible response is desired. The MECC objective is to have squads en route to the call within 30 seconds of receipt by the dispatcher."
"To have to look someone in the eye and tell them that we were unable to get there because we do not have enough resources ‐ it’s unacceptable," Andy Skoogman, the president of Minnesota Police Chiefs Association, told Fox News.
The chair of the city’s safety committee, Alondra Cano, previously told Fox News that the city council acknowledges there is a crisis and is investing and diversifying its force to better represent the community.

[DAWN] As many as 195 new dengue patients landed in three govt hospitals in Rawalpindi on Sunday, taking the tally to 543.
There was no let-up in the dengue patients from Dhoke Munshi, Dhoke Kala Khan, Raheemabad adjacent to Chaklala Scheme-III, Afzal Town and Westridge.
Due to the improper work of dengue detection and spray of medicine in the affected areas, Additional Deputy Commissioner (headquarters) Saima Younas reprimanded health authority officials as the supervisors of the areas were absent from their duties.

[BREITBART] As Week Two of the NFL’s 100th season kicks off, a quick look through social media finds many fans still wondering about all the empty seats as their favorite teams hit the gridiron.
The worst example appeared to be at L.A. Memorial Coliseum where the Rams were battling the visiting New Orleans Saints. Fans flooded social media with questions over the size of the crowd:
Where are the fans? The red u see are empty seats. Come on LA!!#RamsvsSaints #Rams #Saints #NFL100 #NFL https://t.co/HfIshPdIxK pic.twitter.com/VoRwlxZA2g

Also, as the Redskins at home at FedExField took on the visiting Dallas Cowboys ‐ and lost to Dallas, 31-21 ‐some wondered where the fans went:
The same question occurred to Dolphins fans as Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium seemed to have more than a few empties. Others probably wondered if the Dolphins even showed up with their crushing 43-0 loss to the New England Patriots:
Heinz Field was also said to be lacking fans as the Pittsburgh Steelers welcomed the Seattle Seahawks who beat the home team in a squeaker, 28-26:
The stands at the New York Giants’ MetLife Stadium were also sparsely populated as far as some fans thought. Fans were also not likely very happy that the Giants lost to the Buffalo Bills, 28-14, either:
At least one fan thought that the Bengals’ Paul Brown Stadium was not as full as it should be when the 49ers came to town to beat the home team 41-17:
Finally, fans worried that Nissan Stadium was lacking enthusiasm as the home team Titans took on, and lost to, the Indianapolis Colts, 19-17:
At least the Dolphins, Giants & Bengals crowds (or lack thereof) make some sense - fans knew from the start of the season two weeks ago that they all suck big hairy donkey balls. Pittsburgh's a head scratcher, though that will probably remain the case now that Big Ben's out for the season with that elbow injury. Would like to see some 'journalists' start interviewing these former fans for the reason why; it's too easy to blame it on Kaepernick and I think in any case it's multiple reasons, not just Kneeling Douche Boy.
I stopped following football after that kneeling crap. They made it crystal clear that they hate us. They blame all of their problems on us and they do not consider themselves Americans like the rest of us. I said, OK, I got the message.
I don't hate the NFL. I just don't care any more. The opposite of love isn't hate. The opposite of love is indifference.

Maybe they should rebrand as the Globalist football league. Nothing national about them.
There was a time when sports was supposed to personify the American pursuit of excellence. To support your local team was to support America as a whole. When your local team basically spits on you and calls you a bunch of racists, people instead give them the big finger and look for other things.
It's hard to boycott what you never gave a damn about anyway, but others are now seeing my viewpoint. I'll watch when it reaches the point of last person to leave the field alive wins. That might be entertaining and justify their stupid salaries.
Not to disagree with the general trend, but there is one NFL player who seems to have his head screwed on straight: A spoprtcaster quoted Dallas Cowboys QB Zak Prescott at length on Sunday. I can't find an article, but I heard it with my own ears. (Paraphrasing)
It's not about the money. I love the game. I just want to be the best player I can be.
Now, he's still negotiating his contract, and that statement won't hurt his value, to be sure, but it's got more style than Kneeling-Kapperdick or holdout running back Zeke Elliot (who trained at Cabo while he was holding out). And Dak's first two games were fabulous.
I agree with Raj. Something is fishy if someone uses LA attendance as some kind of yardstick for the nation. They've probably got the exact same group of football fans half-filling both stadiums (and waiting to drive to Vegas to catch Raiders games). Those folks are probably super-happy but they are a minority.

Sadly Nigey and Adid Ass have a lot of money to blow thru and you can bet they will. If certain types of people stop buying their stuff they are in trouble and they will $pend big time to forestall that.

The Commissioner and his gutless appeasement policies are a part of this massive decline. SJW asshats have ruined the game for me with racism and excuses for the cultural miasma they escaped by being athletic, not scholars.
If the national anthem or flag is disrespected at an event, I can't think of any citizenry in the world that's going to pay to go still watch it and participate. The size of the audience in fact is indicative of the divide in Americans otherwise once united on innocent pastimes and sport.
It's like a statement to the wakandans and their SJW benefactors - 'you can have it.'
NFL seems about like professional wrestling - yes, athletic ability is involved, but all the parties (including officials) are part of one company, and the company goal is to make money marketing entertainment.
[ALMASDARNEWS] The serial production of Russia’s most advanced S-500 long-range air defense missile system will start in the second half of 2020, CEO of Russia’s state hi-tech corporation Rostec Sergei Chemezov said in an interview with business daily RBC.
"I believe that the serial production will begin in one year time," Chemezov said.
According to him, Russia will not be exporting the new air defense system in the course of five years, because "first of all, we need to provide for our Army and only then start export production."
The S-500 is set to replace the S-400 air defense missile system. The S-500 is being developed for its operation in the next 25 years. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu earlier said that the deliveries of S-500 surface-to-air missile systems to the troops would begin in 2020.
Russia has been training personnel at the Aerospace Defense Military Academy in Tver to learn to operate the S-500 since 2017.

So very ronery!
Snarkery aside, I see this as the beginning of a beautiful friendship. And Pudge will end up as the Godfather of Modern NKor. But it will take time. A country has a lot of inertia. Think of it like a big-ass oil tanker - you don't turn on a dime.
[DAWN] Two Dolphin Squad personnel were suspended from service for allegedly torturing a youth on Cavalry Ground bridge in yet another incident of Punjab 1.) Little Orphan Annie's bodyguard
2.) A province of Pakistain ruled by one of the Sharif brothers
3.) A province of India. It is majority (60 percent) Sikh and Hindoo (37 percent), which means it has relatively few Moslem riots.... Police’s highhandedness in the historic provincial capital.
The torture was caught on a camera installed on a cycle of violence passing by. It showed two Dolphin Squad personnel confronting a youth for parking his cycle of violence on a roadside. Later, the men could be seen misbehaving with and slapping the boy in the video that lasts less than 30 seconds.
Punjab Inspector General of Police (IGP) Arif Nawaz Khan took notice of the incident after the video went viral and directed the field officers to submit an inquiry report to him. However, a poor excuse is better than no excuse at all... Deputy Inspector General (Operations) Ashfaq Khan suspended both the officers of Dolphin team 302 and directed Dolphin Squad Superintendent of Police (SP) Bilal Zafar to hold an inquiry against them. He said strict action would be taken against the coppers involved in misbehaving with citizens.
According to a blurb, the youth was doing a wheelie and a case was also registered against him at the Naseerabad cop shoppe.
In the past few months, Dolphin Squad has invited a lot of public outcry after it shot at two citizens within just two weeks. In the first incident in May, a woman returning home from a hospital died after a bullet fired by Dolphin Squad officials hit her.
In another incident in the same month, the force had shot at and injured a youth in Gulberg, who was returning home after purchasing medicines. The officials rather than providing first aid to the victim took him to cop shoppe and subjected him to torture. The officials were spotted in a video footage torturing a shopkeeper on Bund Road.
Last year, a Dolphin team had shot at and injured a mentally challenged person in Gulshan-e-Ravi. The officers claimed that they had acted in self-defence as the dear departed was carrying a knife and had attempted an assault on them. The same year, a teenage passerby died when he was caught in a reported exchange of fire between Dolphin personnel and suspected robbers on Bund Road.
SP Zafar had introduced refresher courses for Dolphin officials to tackle the issue, and claimed that the initiative was yielding results, as the number of complaints against the squad had dropped drastically.
Because that will make the Eve teasers stop being nasty.
[DAWN] The government of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa has decided to make it mandatory for female students of government-run schools to cover themselves up in the province’s educational institutions, Adviser to Chief Minister on Elementary and Secondary Education Ziaullah Bangash said on Monday.
The order was first circulated in Haripur district last week, where the district education officer asked all principals and headmistresses of government schools to ensure that girl students wore an abaya, gown or chador.
"We came across some situations during our recent visits to tribal areas and Kohistan ...a backwoods district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa distinguished by being even more rustic than is the norm among the local Pashtuns.... that prompted us to take this decision," Bangash told DawnNewsTV, without specifying what these situations were.
Editorial: Rather than policing women's bodies, state authorities should ensure harassers are punished
"We have sensitive areas in the province which require safety measures for the children," he said, adding that the decision is "also in line with the tribal values and the traditions of Islam".
The adviser further said: "This step has been taken particularly to remove the doubts raised by parents about the safety of their children.
"We have to take decisions which are in the best interest of our culture, people and the province. If such a measure can convince the parents to send their girls to schools, why not go ahead with it?"
The adviser said that it was important to focus on the education of both boys and girls in the province. "Our focus is on educating our girls and we should take every step to enable this," he added.
Earlier today, the decision was enforced in Beautiful Downtown Peshawar ...capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa administrative and economic hub for the Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan. Peshawar is situated near the eastern end of the Khyber Pass, convenient to the Pak-Afghan border. Peshawar has evolved into one of Pakistan's most ethnically and linguistically diverse cities, which means lots of gunfire. through a notification issued by District Education Officer Samina Ghani, who directed the heads of all government girls middle, high and higher secondary schools in the district to instruct their students to cover themselves up with a gown, abaya or chador "in order to protect them from any unethical incident".
Maybe I need that first cup of coffee, but why can't a bunch of 'non-coloured' students just steal a few pages from the ol' civil disobedience playbook, bring along some media types and protest these guys, demanding equal rights and all that sort of thing? You know, turn things on its ear?
It's not a STEM program; it's sociologists doing "critical studies" of STEM:
"The Program in Science and Technology Studies (STS) aims to provide students with an interdisciplinary framework through which to appreciate the complex interactions between science, technology and society, and with to analyze and understand the ways science and technology give shape to, and are in turn given shape by, society, culture and history,”
That's exactly how it is played according to what I gathered. Black man is 'majority owner' so business gets consideration or whatnot, but second/third tier is professional construction whites & hispanics.
Not saying black guy is without talent, just saying when the bids go out, these guys put 'minority owned business' on the bid.
One of my black colleagues when I worked at the big company, lo these many years ago, a recent engineering graduate from a good school, was deeply frustrated about the impact of affirmative action on his career. He was a handsome and personable young man, as well as clearly competent, but said that on first meeting everyone, including his fellow African-Americans, assumed he must have been hired only for the colour of his skin instead of his ability. He had no trouble proving that assumption wrong, but he found the whole situation frustrating.
Aff action is way past its shelf life. It was never meant to be other than a temporary boost to try to level the playing field for one, or at most two, generations of afr-americans who had directly experienced institutional discrimination as members of an entire group. It has zero relevance to the current social or legal situation in this country.
At this point, it is nothing more than a shakedown for a group of grifter activists and an admissions scam that's primarily exploited by upper middle-class biracial professional households of the sort that produced shitty, mendacious political opportunists such as Booker, Harris, Obama et al. and shitty, mendacious lowlifes such as Jussie Smollett and the Screaming Yale Brat, Jeralyn Luther.
