Let’s see, car windows smashed, police vehicles burned, Trader Joe’s and other stores looted… 2 Police injured…
We are talking about an upscale “civil disturbance” here.
The key here is they looted Trader Joe’s…Ostensibly just for a bit of Yerba Matte to clear tear gas sting and re-align their chakras…
At least two officers were injured as demonstrations over police killings turned violent in California overnight, with protesters smashing windows and hurling rocks at cops, according to authorities. Berkeley Police said officers used smoke and tear gas after crowds refused to disperse. What started out as a peaceful protest devolved into chaos when “splinter groups broke off and began hurling bricks, pipe, smoke grenades, and other missiles at officers,” according to Berkeley Police spokeswoman Jennifer Coats. She said six people were arrested in the melee.
She said “numerous officers” were struck and that one officer who was struck with a large sandbag was treated for a dislocated shoulder at a local hospital. Protesters vandalized cars, smashing windows and looting businesses, according to Coats, who said a Trader Joe’s, a Radio Shack and a Wells Fargo Bank were vandalized along with “numerous” police cars. The local police department was reinforced by more than a hundred officers from other local police departments, highway patrol and the county sheriff’s office.
Because 80% of the crowd in upscale Berkeley, Ca was white folks…It could not have been a riot!

Did you know there were “riots” in NYC last night?
I checked the usual sources…
ABC? Nope no riots…
CBS? Nope no riots…
AP? Nope no riots…
So how is it AOL’s “News” splash is covered in “carnage”?
More than two black people walking side by side down the street?

I think Maher hits the nail right on the head here… But Drudge is just symbolic of a number of right-wing sites…

I have seen MSNBC trot out Toure as their expert on things “Black”. From what I have seen so far the guy doesn’t have the gravitas to carry that water. Here he attacks Piers Morgan for interviewing George Zimmerman’s brother. This puts Toure in the ridiculous position of denying the Zimmerman family and their supporters the right to free speech. Toure is so far off-base it’s absurd. Piers takes him to school…

Disgraced Former Colonel Alan West, now disgraceful Congressman from Palm Beach, Florida is calling for censorship.
This disgrace thinks that American News outlets which published WikiLeaks should be censored!
Since most Tea Baggers skip reading the Constitution except for the Second Amendment – it probably sailed right over West’s pinhead as to why, in America (at least until these morons get control)…
The Founding Father’s considered that a bad idea.
WEST: There are different means by which you can be attacked. I mean it doesnt have to be a bomb or an airplane flying into a building. It doesn’t have to be a shooting. It can be through cyber attacks, it could be through leaking of very sensitive classified information. Regardless of whether you think it causes any harm, the fact that here is an individual that is not an American citizen first and foremost, for whatever reason gotten his hands on classified American material and put it out there in the public domain. And I think that we also should be censoring the American news agencies which enabled him to do this and also supported him and applauding him for the efforts. So that’s kind of aiding and abetting of a serious crime.
I have one question…Why isn’t this POS in jail? Putting him in office is analogous to electing Heinrich Himmler to Chancellor of Cultural Affairs for Germany after WWII…
Instead of trying, convicting, and executing him.
At least Himmler had the balls to kill himself.
And no – I don’t support WikiLeaks, or what they have done.

The most thankless job in the world, besides being a Flight Attendant – has to be Press Secretary. White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs is getting hammered from both the left and right…
The problem being it isn’t Gibbs who makes the policies.
But this Administration has done a lousy job of communicating their accomplishments, and has consistently refused to utilize all the weapons in their arsenal to combat disinformation, whether inadvertent, or as in the case of Faux News – intentional.
Whether Gates is responsible for that, or the more likely case that the responsibility lies further up on the food chain…
The Administration is failing to control it’s message.
Somebody please show Mr. Gates where the button is for the evacuation slide!
