As you may know...the riots here in the US.
There have been some here in my city.
Last night, a bar owner was at watch at his place and apparently rioters where at his front door.
Social media says he was calling the black people the, word.
And then shot a 22 year old, killing him.
Everyone is saying he is a well known racist- supremist.
I've googled and all I have found was he has made a comment about Trans..and has apologized.

Seen the video. the guy videoing was black and calling everyone the, word.

Couldn't see much and they were questioned right after the shooting. No mention of the racist remarks.

So social media has lit up now we have a curfew as the national guard (part of the military) has been deployed.

I'm thinking it could get crazy here tonight.

G'day Marc + Don + team

Aussie c-19 numbers have dropped to zero cases in most states and our lockdowns are starting to be lifted ... whoopie
In our case - a 2-month 'freeze' for many activities plus federal government $$ support for many people has made a world of difference

All quiet last night, but they will be announcing there will be no charge against the bar owner.
I expect he11 to break loose tonight.

Scary times for people all over the USA I suspect. Sadly unlikely to make a long term difference if the many school killings over the years are anything to go by. Great outpourings of anger and grief (justified) and demands for change, followed by what changes??.........
