Racist FBI releases racist crime statistics

They claim that 45% of murder arrests are of African Americans, even though 2016 population estimates have African Americans as just 13% of the population.

Either someone in the FBI is manipulating statistics for their own racist purposes, or African Americans are being arrested and falsely accused of murder at a rate over 3 times our actual #'s in the population. And these false arrests and accusations will only get worse under Shitler and his minions, and having Kavanaugh on the SC will surely make these kinds of racist practices by the FBI and law enforcement even worse.

If you'd told me 4 years ago that DU's 2 biggest heroes in 2018 would be Mueller and McCain...

...2 conservative RepubliCONS, I would have said you’re crazy.

Times have changed. We’re certainly living in a different universe these days.

Why even attempt to portray physical racial differences in 2018? To what end?

In my opinion the guy isn’t just racist and sexist, he’s also stupid. There is never a situation in which portraying physical racial differences is a good idea. If people think you exaggerated features, you’re racist. If people think you understated features, you’re whitewashing.

It’s 2018; there is way too much negative history for it to make sense to even attempt this.

Why not just portray everyone looking the exact same and just put their names above them?

Not gonna be a good headline: apparently an undocumented immigrant charged in Mollie Tibbetts murder

24 yo being held on on a federal immigration detainer. This won’t play well in Iowa.

I'm gonna say it: I wish Romney was heeded in 2012.

Not elected of course, but heeded. Within 15 months of his infamous “Russia is our #1 geopolitical” foe comment during the 2012 campaign, for which he was mocked by everyone including President Obama, VP Biden and SOS Clinton, Russia had interfered in Ukraine, likely shot down that Malaysian flight amongst other things, and just 2 years later stole our election.

I think an incredible amount of damage could have been avoided (including NO PRESIDENT TRUMP) and it’d be a lot harder for Rethuglicans to ignore the problem if we’d been actively fighting it for 6 years now.

We were ALL wrong on this. No “80’s wants it’s foreign policy back” jokes here: Russia IS our #1 foe, and we need to catch up on years of lost time that we could have been halting this enemy in its tracks.

Could/should we have done more about Russia pre-2016?

I loved Obama’s 2012 zingers about “the 80’s wanting their foreign policy back” after Romney said Russia was our #1 geopolitical foe. Tons of other Democratic leaders and strategists took a similar stance at the time, and I trusted their expertise.

But since 2016 we’ve talked about little else besides Russia, so now I’m wondering if Trump could have been prevented if we’d taken the Russia threat seriously before then. 2012-2016 feels like 4 years lost, and it feels like we’ll be paying for that mistake way longer than 4 years.

Disturbing: Trump's favorability is HIGHER than it was pre-election.

Last week and a half before 11/8/16 - 37.5 Favorable, 58.5 Unfavorable

6/1/18 - 7/3/18 - 41.8 Favorable, 53.2 Unfavorable

These policies can't possibly be winning him more voters, can they? Maybe question is being asked differently today than in 2016? Where are all these alleged supporters?

FBI: Man planning alleged Cleveland attack wanted to give explosive-filled cars to military children

Source: USA Today

The FBI said Monday that Demetrius Nathaniel Pitts – also known as Abdur Raheem Rafeeq – was taken into custody Sunday morning on accusations of attempting to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization. Last week, Pitts, 48, of Maple Heights, Ohio, allegedly told an undercover agent: "I did tell myself that their holiday is coming up. The Fourth of July. Independence Day. What would hit them in the core? Blow up. Have a bomb. Blow up at the Fourth of July parade."

Authorities say Pitts, an American citizen, talked about hitting targets such as St. John's Cathedral and giving remote control cars packed with explosives to the children of military members.

According to court documents, in a Jan. 25, 2017, Facebook post, Pitts commented on photos believed to be from an al-Qaida training camp. "We as Muslim(s) need to start. Training like this every," the post said. "Look at the bed blue-eyed devils. They teach their little dogs on how to shoot and hunt. ... We should always be prepared to fight in the name of Allah Akbar. All cowards stay home."

Anthony said Pitts' adult criminal history dates back to 1989 when Pitts was 19. He was charged in Hamilton County with aggravated robbery and felonious assault, convicted of robbery and sentenced to three to 15 years in prison. Records show he served less than a year in prison and was released on probation.

If we abolish ICE and and the jobs of 20,000+ federal employees, the anti-gov right can retire.

Cause we've officially taken over their role in the political process.

How hard would it be to block ads for Confederate flags from the DU homepage?

I realize the site needs money just like any site does, but it’s disturbing how often homepage ads are anywhere from mildly to wildly offensive on a site that is and wants to continue to be the internet’s largest forum for Democrats.
