Detroit prosecutor calls for deaths of Baltimore protesters: ‘Shoot em. Period. End of discussion’

Published

A Detroit prosecutor suggested a violent solution to ending the protests in Baltimore over a black man’s death while in police custody.

Teana Walsh, an assistant prosecutor in Wayne County, posted this week on her Facebook account that demonstrators who committed acts of violence or vandalism should be shot, reported WJBK-TV.

She voluntarily resigned Friday, reported The Detroit News.

“So I am watching the news in Baltimore and see large swarms of people throwing bricks, etc at police who are fleeing from their assaults,” Walsh posted.

“(Fifteen) in the hospital already,” she continued. “Solution. Simple. Shoot em. Period. End of discussion. I don’t care what causes the protestors to turn violent…what the ‘they did it because’ reason is…no way is this acceptable. Flipping disgusting.”

The assistant prosecutor made the post at 10:33 p.m. Monday but has since deleted it, but a local attorney who saw the post shared a photo of the remarks.

A spokeswoman for the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office defended Walsh, saying the law enforcement official is “known for her great work ethic and her compassion for victims of crime and their families.”

“Her post was up on line briefly and she immediately took it down,” said spokeswoman Maria Miller in a statement. “The post was completely out of character for her and certainly does not reflect the person that we know.”

Walsh, who has not commented on the post, had apparently deleted her social media account by Friday morning.

Presidential candidate Andrew Yang suggested President Donald Trump is too scared to attack him during a CNN appearance on Saturday.

Yang, whose campaign has been buoyed by his passionate online supporters known as the "Yang Gang," was interviewed by Van Jones.

"Part of the thing is that you’re such an unlikely candidate that people, they’re not shooting at you, even Donald Trump doesn’t have a bad name for you yet," Jones noted. "Is that a good thing or a bad thing?"

"Well, Donald Trump hasn’t messed with me online because he knows I’m actually better at the internet than he is," Yang replied, to cheers from the crowd.

2020 Election

NYT wonders if Republicans challenging Trump are the ‘Three Musketeers’ or the ‘Three Stooges’

Published

President Donald Trump's three Republican challengers for the GOP's 2020 nomination were featured in a new 1,500-word profile by The New York Times that was published online on Saturday.

Former Gov. Mark Sanford (R-SC), former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) and former Gov. Bill Weld (R-MA) are all challenging the incumbent.

"Supporters of Mr. Trump’s Republican challengers refer to them as the 'Three Musketeers,' and argue that having a trio of challengers — however long their long-shot bids are — could add up to enough of a nuisance to whittle away support for a vulnerable incumbent," the newspaper reported. "The president, on Twitter, has given them a more demeaning nickname: 'the Three Stooges.'"

NYT columnist has identified the one man who could be an even worse president than Donald Trump

Published

on

President Donald Trump has not even been in office for three full years, yet already historians are ranking him as one of the worst American leaders of all time.

But could America do even worse?

Farhad Manjoo, a columnist for The New York Times, conducted a "thought experiment" to imagine how voters could do even worse.

"What sort of character do we have to imagine occupying the White House in 2029 to make lefties like myself feel even a slight pang of nostalgia for the good old days of Donald J. Trump?" he wondered.
