Seattle sheriff’s detective investigated after ‘All Lives Splatter’ post after protester was killed on highway

Published

A King County sheriff’s detective is now under investigation after deplorable social media posts after a car killed a protester on I-5 in Seattle this weekend, KIRO 7 reported Monday.

Detective Mike Brown posted a meme saying “All Lives Splatter,” showing people being hit by a truck.

“This has taken priority with me. And I’ve asked the undersheriff to make sure that our internal investigation command understands this is their top priority right now,” said King County Sheriff Mitzi Johanknecht.

According to Johanknecht, her office got multiple complaints about Brown on Sunday night. By Monday morning she had ordered the investigation be expedited and that they would be looking into other posts Brown made, though his page has now been taken down.

KIRO 7 discovered another post from Brown where he wrote, “I see a couple of people got infected with Covid-19 from the hood of a car on I-5 last night.”

“I don’t want to speak specifically about the posts now. Like I said, it’s a longer story to tell you about how our internal investigations take place, the involvement of oversight with them and interviews, so I don’t want to quantify something that’s currently under investigation and, thereby, potentially damage our ability to do a proper investigation,” said Johanknecht.

Expert: NRA had to be obliterated by New York for one very important reason

Published

The New York attorney general's aggressive moves against the National Rifle Association might have been handled by the U.S. Department of Justice, according to a former federal prosecutor.

State attorney general Letitia James filed a lawsuit to dissolve the powerful lobbying group over claims of rampant fraud, but former U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade's new column for The Daily Beast calls out the Justice Department's inaction.

"Like other cases of corruption, this easily could have been framed as a criminal case," McQuade wrote. "Filing false registration and disclosure documents as part of a scheme to defraud can serve as the basis for federal mail or wire fraud, and often does in public corruption cases. When I served as a federal prosecutor, my former office brought public corruption cases on such theories in similar cases in which officials misused funds for personal benefit."

Trump-loving media’s attacks on Joe Biden have all been epic flops so far: data

Published

on

Pro-Trump media websites have been trying to pull the same trick on Joe Biden that they pulled on Hillary Clinton in 2016 -- but so far, none of their attacks on the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee have gained traction.

Axios reports that data from right-wing news websites shows that reader engagement on three key anti-Biden stories -- his alleged mental decline, his son Hunter Biden's former job with Ukrainian energy company Burisma, and sexual assault allegations by Tara Reade -- have all fizzled.

Trump aides frustrated by his ‘nonsensical’ Biden attacks in Ohio: AP reporter

Published

on

During a segment on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Associated Press White House correspondent Jonathan Lemire stated that aides close to President Donald Trump thought the president made some good points about the U.S. economy on Thursday -- only to have his message overlooked when he attacked former Vice President Joe Biden.

Speaking with co-host Willie Geist, Lemire said there were other problems with the Ohio visit -- including Republican Gov. Mike DeWine being unable to attend because he tested positive for COVID-19 -- but Trump stating Biden "hurts God" made the economic points the president made secondary in a state where he needs votes.
