150 Minneapolis police officers seeking disability for PTSD following riots

But the stress and trauma reached a tipping point with the siege of the Third Police Precinct, he said. Fifty of the officers currently seeking disability, about one-third of the total, were present at the Third Precinct on Thursday, May 28.

“They did not feel they were going to come home,” said Meuser. Some officers were texting their families’ goodbye and others were saving a bullet in case they needed to take their own life, rather than being beaten to death, he said. 

Meuser said since the killing of George Floyd, officers have felt abandoned by city and state politicians as well as the community at large. “It’s an emotional beatdown on a daily basis for these guys,” he said.


They're suffering severe psychological trauma from the consequences of brutalizing citizens.

Tremendous risk for criminal and civil liability. According to this article I dug up.

Are you talking about your thread on animal abuse?

The sad thing is, that any attempt to rein in these groups will be regarded as

an intolerable infringement on 2nd Amendment rights.

The current party line among 2A defenders is that groups of heavily armed men prominently displaying military style weaponry, in a manner that's inherently threatening and intimidating, are harmlessly engaging in free expression of their 2A freedoms. This line can even be seen on this very site.

This type of situation is only going to get worse until there's a fundamental reevaluation of the meaning of the 2nd Amendment.

People shouldn't be able to have that much power in our society

just because they're extremely rich.

The problem is more that we live in a plutocracy than that this particular plutocrat is an asshole.

Florida still lowballing fatality numbers.

After refusing for weeks, Florida reveals flurry of deaths at individual nursing homes, ALFs


The administration of Gov. Ron DeSantis disclosed the fatality numbers after several news organizations, including The Miami Herald, filed suit under the state’s public records law to force the data’s release — and in the wake of withering pressure from elder advocates and the families of long-term care residents who have been isolated in nursing homes and assisted living facilities for a month

Problems immediately emerged with what was released. For example, more than a month ago, administrators at the 180-bed Atria Willow Wood ALF in Fort Lauderdale confirmed that at least six residents had died of COVID-19, the illness caused by the virus. But the chart released Friday includes only three resident deaths as confirmed, while three remained “under investigation.”

Some of the data raised eyebrows. One nursing home in the Panhandle, the 210-bed Southern Oaks Care Center, was reported to have had three resident deaths — though recent data from health administrators showed 94 residents of the Pensacola home had been infected. Based on previous data, 40% to 50% of long-term care residents infected with the virus die.


I wonder what the real numbers are. If they've got something to hide, I suspect it's huge.
