More warnings from Memphis PD


One of videos is posted below that tweet. He’s saying, “White folks fixin’ to not like black people,” the man says in the posting. “They’re fixin’ to be marching by the riverside, ‘White Lives Matter,’ he adds. “He already shot an old white man. I’m fixin’ to shoot a white old lady.”

If you have family there, I give a heads up. Not to cancel anything but just pay attention to what’s going on .

A domestic terror threat?

It’s not very different from a jihadi posting a video before an attack .

It has been 20 years but still. It’s a place you don’t want to be that’s for sure. Random killings all week.

We are grieving now, and we have many problems but still there is a lot to love about this very big small town. We gathered together this morning ( a lovely mosaic of races, socioeconomic class and color) to honor Liza, and for healing in our beloved city. It was beautiful and moving, and truly representative of this town's spirit.
There were candlelight vigils all over town last night for the victims of the rampage across out city. There is definitely more that brings us together than pulls us apart.

I recently moved back from Portland OR, and heard many of the same things said about that city by folks who didn't live there. I am tired and weary of the turmoil this country is feeling now. I am grieving.

This article sums it up quite well.
