US President Donald Trump has meanwhile faced massive protests against police violence and racism Decree for limited police reform signed. Trump signed the order at a ceremony on Tuesday White House Rose Garden. Among other things, he announced that police officers should only be allowed to use strangleholds when their lives were in danger.
The decree aims to improve recruitment, training and rules of engagement for police officers. Federal funding for the Police authorities should be subject to the condition that certain standards in these fields are met. Among other things, an exchange of data is envisaged so that police authorities can no longer employ officers who have been released by another police authority because of serious misconduct.
The opposition Democrats are demanding further reforms and have put forward appropriate proposals in Congress. Among other things, they want to abolish the so-called “qualified immunity” that Civil lawsuits from victims of police violence complicate. After weeks Protests against racism Trump also promised “justice” to relatives of victims of police violence on Tuesday. “Your loved ones will not have died for nothing,” Trump said after meeting with relatives.
Update from June 16, 12.25 p.m .: US president Donald Trump the “Autonomous Zone Capitall Hill” in Seattle is obviously an eyesore. Although official reports from the metropolis in the state of Washington speak of predominantly peaceful protests, Trump continues to threaten the National Guard to smash the protest.
The “Capital Hill Autonomous Zone” have protesters after the violent death of George Floyd in Seattle set up about a week ago and are calling for systematic change. Of the Trump loyal and right-wing conservative TV broadcaster Fox News describes the area as an “anarchist zone” full of violence. Trump himself said that he saw on TV what was going on in Seattle – “They are violent people who take over there”, that he saw the beatings and violence that went on there. The governor of the U.S. state Washington, Jay Inslee, barely respond, Trump swung out for a sweep. Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan apparently doesn’t know she is alive and is unresponsive, Trump said in a press statement. Durkan and Inslee are members of the Democratic Party. “If they don’t do their job, I’ll do the job,” Trump threatened.
Media reports currently rate the protest as peaceful. Among other things, the broadcaster reported CNN out of the zone. Also a video contribution from the station loyal to Trump Fox news Monday contradicts other reports from the broadcaster – as well as the President. In the “Autonomous Zone”, which the demonstrators have now renamed “Capital Hill Organized Protest”, only a handful of demonstrators escalated at most. The protest was “99.9 percent peaceful,” reports the Fox News-Reporter after three days in the “Autonomous Zone”.
Do on Twitter Trump the “radical left” responsible for the protest in Seattle and assumes the movement to “take over” the city. With his all around on Twitter criticizes the US president also the media, which would not report on this development. This is done “on purpose” because the reporting has a bad political impact. Also catches up Runp against Washington Governor Jay Inslee and Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan. You should be ashamed of yourself. The problem could easily be solved. Both are members of the Democratic Party. Meanwhile, Trump has announced a police reform.
Does anyone notice how little the Radical Left takeover of Seattle is being discussed in the Fake News Media. That is very much on purpose because they know how badly this weakness & ineptitude play politically. The Mayor & Governor should be ashamed of themselves. Easily fixed!

Update from June 16, 9:07 a.m .: After the death George Floyd has been intensifying the murder of the African American since last weekend Rayshard Brooks in a brutal police operation, protests against racism and police violence in the US continue. US president Donald Trump has reacted to it again and one Police reform order announced.
“The overall goal is that we want law and order,” Trump emphasized on Monday (local time) in the White House. “And we want that to happen fairly, fairly and securely.” What reforms Trump specifically plans, he only wanted at one Press conference this Tuesday at 12 a.m. (local time, 6 p.m. Central European time) in the Rose Garden of the White House to mark the signing of the order.
The president announced “some good solutions”. He also added that most police officers are “great people”. On Monday evening, the White House said the order included government incentives for police agencies to train officials better. “Bad police officers” who were noticed by excessive violence should be able to be screened earlier. In addition, should Social workers are increasingly used.

It enacted regulations to limit the use of force by police officers to the bare minimum. All officials would have to be trained in de-escalation again and again in the future, she explained.
In addition, all police officers would have to in the future excessive use of force intervene through colleagues and report them to avoid punishments, said the mayor. There are no measures that Brooks can bring back to his family, but she will continue to work “every day to prevent this from happening again,” she said. The changes now ordered are only the “first step” of a reform process. Brooks’ death made her “angry and sad,” said Lance Bottoms.
Brooks May have only resisted the arrest on Friday because it was his daughter’s birthday and he might have been afraid of spending the weekend in prison, the mayor speculated. She knows of similar cases from her own family, said the African American. “It shouldn’t have ended that way,” she emphasized.
Update from June 15, 10:03 p.m .: Even the death of the 27-year-old Rayshard Brooks sparked new ones in the US Protests out. His widow Tomika Miller thanked the demonstrators and supporters. “Words cannot express how thankful I am for everything,” she said. However, there is no justice that can bring her husband back for her and her children, Miller sobbed to journalists. She held her two-year-old daughter Memory in her arms. “It will take a long time for this to heal for me, it will take a long time for this to heal for our family.”
Update from June 15, 9:30 p.m .: After the African American Rayshard Brooks at a police check in Atlanta the family’s lawyer said Chris Stewartthat Brooks case shouldn’t be downplayed just because he resisted the arrest. “You handcuffed George Floyd and then he was killed. If you’re an African American, getting handcuffed doesn’t mean being led nicely into the back seat of a police car, ”the lawyer said. Every African-American man in the U.S. has been afraid of police treatment since childhood, another lawyer said.
The 27-year-old had fallen asleep at the wheel of his car while waiting in line at a fast food restaurant. The
Bodycam of the arriving policeman recorded what happened next: Brooks was woken up and told to park his car outside the queue. He claimed to have had a drink.

The officer ordered a colleague to do an alcohol test.
The police found that Brooks had drunk too much to drive and wanted to handcuff the man. Then everything happened very quickly: Brooks wanted to avoid being arrested, the three men fell to the ground. In the argument, he managed to grab the official’s electric shock pistol (taser) and free himself. A short chase followed – past several cars waiting in line at the restaurant. Brooks turned as he ran and activated it Taserwhereupon the officer pulled and fired his service weapon behind him.
The central question in the case is whether the reaction of the police officers was appropriate. “By law, a taser is not a lethal weapon,” said Stewart. In the police video, it can be seen that Brooks was polite. Brooks could have just been told to take an Uber home. “That should never have resulted in his death,” said Stewart.

Grins that say a caption: “Albuquerque: Police Arrest Members of Your Armed Civilian Group”.
But I don’t have any other group at all! 😉
then we are finished with “ruin” in front of him ..
So what? What planet do you live on?
There are numerous videos circulating on the Internet of the most brutal mistreatment of whites by “peaceful Black Lives Matter demonstrators” (no suspected hooligans or bald opponents). These pictures do not fit into the political media landscape at all and are therefore probably kept secret in the ÖR.
The SPIEGEL editor Philipp Oehmke recently announced in a comment that dhe time of neutrality and an outdated ideal of neutral journalism is over is. I hope that this will not be the case for Mercury in the future either.
If someone steals a gun from a policeman and then points it at them, they knowingly take the risk of being shot. This has nothing to do with racism.
“Trump threatens peaceful protests with massive action”
So protests are peaceful when shops are looted and set on fire? Good to know. I wonder if you would write the same thing if e.g. Looted hooligans or identity shops? Greetings from Orwell. This double standard is so perfidious!
