Blue on Blue, 1/6/21

A retired New York police officer who once was part of the security detail at City Hall was charged on Tuesday with assaulting a police officer with a metal flagpole during the pro-Trump riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6.

The former officer, Thomas Webster, served in a New York Police Department unit that provided security for the mayor, Gracie Mansion and City Hall, according to a law enforcement official. He retired from the force in 2011.

Mr. Webster, 54, a former Marine, surrendered to the F.B.I. on Monday and was charged with six counts relating to the attack on an officer from the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, D.C., and his participation in the violent attempt to stop Congress from certifying the presidential election results.

A federal prosecutor said there were videos of Mr. Webster attacking the Washington officer, first with a metal flagpole that earlier had flown a Marine Corps flag, and then with his bare hands.

You know, of course, that if a demonstrator at a BLM protest had beaten a cop with a flagpole and then knocked the cop to the ground and tried to rip off the cop's gas mask, that the Usual Suspects on the Right would be losing their collective shit over it. But since this guy was fighting to overturn the election, as desired by their orange demigod, TFG, this crime won't garner much of a mention from the Right Wing Noise Machine.

Still, given that the perp ws a retired cop who was allegedly committing assault with a deadly weapon against a cop, I expect that the prosecutors are going to take this one as far as they can.

They're also arresting charter members of the Incel Woman-Haters Club.

Speaking of incels, the one who blew off all of one hand and part of another while making a bomb pled guilty to possessing a bomb. That story was buried by the coup attempt of TFG.

The center and right have condemned all of the violence and criminal action since the first "mostly peaceful" arsons of black owned business and government buildings in Minneapolis, through the use of lasers and explosive devices in the PNW, and through the Capitol riot.
The Left seemed fine with it until it was noticed that most voters weren't.

0_0, the first thing I heard From the right was that the insurrection was a false-flag antifa action. Yesterday, that idiot senator from Wisconsin was trying to assert that the insurrectionists weren’t Trump supporters.

The big lie from the Right is that the insuuection was just another riot.

The capitol riot and insurrection...

Why it is more the latter.
* Cops killing cops
* Retired military that took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution
Who did mostly anything but.
* protecting lies and propaganda by acting as if it were true.
* There was no antifa there, it was all right wing, anarchist,
and TFG supporters.


What was especially bad.
During the summer riots people most not white were arrested on the spot by the hundreds.
During the Capitol invasion the criminals were allowed to walk out without
arrest on the spot. Then they had to be tracked down all over the country.

The DC police failed and those ther ehad to basically controll a riot by
yelling "bang you're wounded" at the rioters who then assaulted and killed
them



Eck!

And yet, we didn't go nuts when a Loberal Left wint black man shot a bunch of cops in Dalls, did we?

FUnn how your metrics change so much. THat o' Doube Standard thing again.

If white people, and Conservatives were as bad as you claim, there would be genocide...but we aren't and there isn't.
It is sad that you cannot judge both sides with the same standard. Once, you did.

If I'm not mistaken, he got blown the hell up right? Nothing to go nuts over.

Maybe it’s a liberal thing, but I can’t see the value of putting the inert remains of a perp on trial.

Following the shooting, Johnson fled inside a building on the campus of El Centro College. Police followed him there, and a standoff ensued. In the early hours of July 8, police killed Johnson with a bomb attached to a remote control bomb disposal robot. It was the first time U.S. law enforcement had used a robot to kill a suspect.[11]

B: Liberals and BLM are pikers when it comes to mayhem. The goddamn Iraq war was a 100% conservative white guy joint. Half a million dead, trillions of dollars wasted, the middle east destabilized for a generation.
That's pretty damn close to the genocide you deny, and then there are the half million US citizens dead of a preventable disease. Still want to claim conservative white guys are soooo much above the lowly violent behavior your goddamn propaganda tells you is the provenance of dark people who don't belong here?
Learn how to count, then learn how to tell what is real before you try and count it.

It appears, for the typos and lousy composition, that somebody has hijacked B's account.

"significant quantities of what is believed to be Triacetone Triperoxide"...

Any chemical compound with "tri" in the formula is a warning. One with 2 "tri"s? He's lucky he only lost a hand!
