22. I know people who are in a cult. I don't see the worst evil unless i have a ptsd attack most often.

Then i see it. But not if it is a separate pattern of crimes from the ones i experienced, like the video today. One does not bleed into the other in my mind thankfully. You are correct to not want to see it.

2. Thank goodness Ben Crump was made aware of this. I was horrified and sickened when I read that no

arrest was made. Sic em Ben! Get Rev Al on the phone pronto! You have to shine the light on these bastards, the assholes who did it and the police and DA.

5. Please follow the full story about the attempted lynching HERE, it's a great resource.

Black Sports Online posts a lot of very helpful articles with supporting materials.

They have identified the bigots but the local DA doesn't seem interested.

9. Driver was a woman

Luke Chris Norton
@LCNorton31
The driver of the red vehicle was a woman who was advancing towards protestors as the protest was ending, and was told she could get through soon, and she mouthed "I'm gonna run them over" before accelerating as protestors were on her car. She ran three red lights

Luke Chris Norton
@LCNorton31


And made a sharp right turn on 6th and Walnut to throw the protestors off of her car. The protestor taken in an ambulance was bleeding from the head and unresponsive

Luke Chris Norton
@LCNorton31

To clarify, I gathered this from one of the protestors struck

11. Here's local Bloomington coverage on the hit-and-run....

Peaceful protest against racism ends with hit and run
Bloomington.com
Jeremy Hogan
July 6, 2020

Link: https://bloomingtonian.com/2020/07/06/peaceful-protest-against-racism-ends-with-hit-and-run/

(snips)
The driver of a red car struck two protesters near the intersection of 4th and Walnut and proceeded North on Walnut Street at a high rate of speed before turning right on 6th Street throwing the protesters from the vehicle.

A woman was hanging onto the hood of the car as the woman sped up, and was later bleeding after being flung into the street. Medics attended to the injured woman who was put into an ambulance and taken to a hospital. A protest sign with a peace sign on it lay in the street near a pool of blood reading, “No Justice, No Peace.”

A man also hung onto the car, and was also thrown into the street, but he wasn’t seriously injured according to witnesses.

Members of the Bloomington Police Department quickly responded to the scene, and drove down 6th Street looking for the suspect vehicle, but failed to immediately locate it. Protesters had chased the vehicle on foot, and in vehicles, but it was too late to catch it, and one protester fell in an alley between 6th and 7th Street.

It's certain they have this car's tags and a clear description of the driver from multiple witnesses, so this person will likely be in jail today (Tuesday).

KY.......

18. Indiana just passed a hate crimes law last year

And it's a weak one.

I'm glad I left that state.

20. My nephew's wife posted this on facebook

and I watched those idiots try to lynch him and the girls that were trying to stop them.
The KKK is rampant in Indiana. Where I grew up, I was 10 miles from the Grand Dragon that lived in Osceola.
The racism is alive. Down near Monroe Lake, it's worse. Those people are hillbillies.

23. A bar in one town had a "White's Only" sign on their wall

It was 2002!

Definite pockets of KKK, so glad I moved!

26. Same!

I kept going back “home” but That is not home for me. At all.
I haven’t lived there in a decade and it’s just sadness for them. There is some good people in Indiana but unfortunately the loud stupid ones seem to get all the attention. Back when I saw it, cell phones weren’t invented yet.

21. Indiana is a total shithole.

I don't mean to offend anyone, but I've got some roots in that state and I've always hated it.

So the fucking pigs don't even bother to arrest white people involved in violent crimes. Fuck them.

I think that anybody trying to lynch a person should be given the death penalty
