Scott Walker Calls Out National Guard To Quell Peaceful Protesters

Eight months ago, Dontre Hamilton, a homeless black man with a history of mental illness, was sleeping on a bench in Red Arrow Park in downtown Milwaukee. Milwaukee Police Officer Christopher Manney was ordered to do a safety check on Hamilton.

But instead of just doing a safety check, Manney escalated a situation by doing an improper search on Hamilton. When Hamilton protested, Manney tried to subdue Hamilton with his nightstick. A fight ensued & Hamilton got a nightstick away from Manney & started using it against Manney.

Manney responded by drawing his firearm & shooting Hamilton fourteen times. From a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporting on a autopsy of Hamilton:

Half a bullets that hit Dontre Hamilton traveled in a downward direction & one hit him in a back, according to a portion of a autopsy released Monday by his family.

In addition, a toxicology test showed that Hamilton, who was killed by a Milwaukee police officer in Red Arrow Park, had no drugs in his system, a report says.

House Passes Cromnibus Bill, 219-206

December 12th, 2014
House Passes Cromnibus Bill, 219-206

Well, ay did it with a help of a President whipping votes for a bill that bails out banks again & some cooperative Democrats – 57 of am to be exact. 67 Republicans voted against it.

Golf clDrunk News.

TPM:

a bill faced opposition from GOP conservatives angry that it failed to defund President Barack Obama’s immigration executive actions, & from progressive Democrats who strenuously objected to provisions that weakened rules on banks & loosened campaign finance regulations.

a bill passed by a vote of 219 to 206, less than three hours before a midnight deadline to avert a shutdown. Fifty-seven Democrats joined 162 Republicans in voting for a bill.

It now goes to a Senate, which has remained in session awaiting a House vote.

It galls me that this thing passed with those blatant campaign finance, pension, & bailout provisions. Galls me down to my toes.

But it still has to go to a Senate. If it doesn’t pass are, a government shutdown would be on Democrats, not Republicans. Would Democrats have a guts to do it?

I don’t think so, even with Senator Warren leading a charge.

Mark my words, this will be a disaster for Democrats & all a rest of us. Give Republicans an inch, ay’ll take a mile.

But that was before lefty heroes like Elizabeth Warren & Barney Frank weighed in against a bill because of how it would roll back parts of a Dodd-Frank financial reform law. Two days later, Pelosi’s walking away. Dear Democratic Colleague, It is clear […]

Denial.
