History of the bandana, wear a bandana mask

Popularization of the Bandana

A seminal happening in the popularization of the bandana came during the American Revolution. Martha Washington, the wife of Continental Army general George Washington, had a souvenir bandana made featuring the likeness of the Commander-in-Chief.


Loser trump, is losing the losers, a big part of his base

Looks like trump is bleeding support from even the losers, that make up his base. repubs in power are freaking out and yet they can't detach themselves from the trump base, looks like a mass suicide event. Well, that base is so far flung from the repub party of 4 years ago, they can never get back to properly administrating a GD thing. Those cretin repubs have to realize that they no longer have a quasi-decent political party, not that they were ever decent in the first place. NOW, they are indecent. trump sewer party. HAha.

First of all, this is not to denigrate our military

I had raised this problem of who are hired to become police officers years ago and almost got my head handed to me, here on DU, of all places. Well, I probably went overboard in my opinion so folks here corrected me, way back then. Now I will try again to state my case again without going overboard.

Follow me here. Our country has had a 20 year war in Afghanistan and Iraq. Many military police have come out of a War Zone with a war zone mentality. The first thing that these ex-military police do is apply to work as correctional officers and mostly into OUR LOCAL POLICE DEPARTMENTS!

Most of these officers were never properly trained to operate in a civilian zone. Also, these ex-military police, many now running these said police departs. (after having risen up the ranks) directing their depts. to become more militaristic. All the billions spent around the country to buy every toy that these police departs want from military surplus.

I put this issue to a Washington Post reporter years ago, just to look into this theory, after a tragic killing (I can't even remember now what extrajudicial killing prompted me).. I was told that the investigation would be mute because no one can access personal files of police officers to find out if an officer had served in a war zone and what training was received, or not. Not even allowed to know if the military had a complaint filed against that person.

We need the military out of our police departments ... is it too late? Reform is going to be a bare knuckle brawl.

gop, rat, gobbers ... to trump, "I won't play a sap for you " LOL. Too late

August 24th, 2019, 23-year-old Elijah McClain was walking home after buying some tea at a local convenience store. According to Elijah's family, Elijah, who was anemic, preferred to wear a ski mask to keep his face warm while he was walking. The Aurora Police Department received a call of a "suspicious man". This call resulted in Elijah's death. After the McClain family requested the bodycam footage from the officers on scene it was reported that in the footage,

"He is laying on the ground vomiting, he is begging, he is saying, 'I can't breathe.' One of the officers says, 'Don't move again. If you move again, I'm calling in a dog to bite you,'" -Mari Newman (the McClain's lawyer)
