Meanwhile outside of a courthouse in Portland, a protester with a Hello Kitty helmet ran up to a tear gas grenade with a hockey stick and whacked it back at federal officers. I think I just got into sports...

Portland Gestapo Misidentification: "ZT1" is likely not a mercenary but a US Border Patrol combatant


You may have seen an imaage with captions claiming to show private contractor mercenaries assaulting nonviolent protestors in Portland, Oregan. As best I can tell this is a misidentification and unfortunate coincidence.

While the aggressor does have an unholstered sidearm drawn, and other similar images show weapons pointed directly at the photographer, insignia and attribution differ from the meme.

Whilst there is a company called “ZTI” (zed-tee-eye), on close examination the left shoulder patch the patch reads “ZT1” (zed-tee-numeral-one), and by one source (Cato) is apparently a US Government insignia for Customs and Border Patrol:
In a Friday tweet, Customs and Border Patrol official Mark Morgan acknowledged that the agents were not wearing name badges. He said this was in order to protect them from retaliation. But he claimed that the officers did wear unique identifiers. In one photograph, “ZT1” is visible above an officer’s agency patch.

The company ZTI (letter “i”, not numeral one) provides information technology services, not paramilitary services, best I can tell.

Other officers pictured as in this Buzzfeed article have other identifiers, with “MN1” (emm-enn-one) visible in another photograph.

All appearances are that these are Federal agents. Not mercenaries. So far.

(That this is in the least comforting is a sign of just how sick the U.S. has become.)

I'm not active on Wikipeda because I have been booted from it. I work on mathematics -- apparently, this is a highly contentious topic that causes wikipedia admins to foam at the mouth in rage and fear. Many wikipedia admins are corrupt assholes -- lowest-of-the-low slime-balls. Dicktards. Fuck-heads. This is the same kind of #blm mentality of "we are the police and we can use excessive force to fuck you up and we enjoy doing it! After all we are UNPAID VOLUNTEERS!". You don't have to actually be a policeman to be abusive. Once you have total and un-restrained powers, you can be an asshole anywhere.

#DefunedWikipediaAdmins Fuck Wikipedia Admins. The entire culture sucks. It needs to be completely dissolved and abolished.

Check it out.

Memo an #Mitarbeiter
#Starbucks untersagt #Sympathiebekundungen mit "Black Lives Matter"
Sie sollen ihr "ganzes Selbst" zur Arbeit bringen - aber dabei bitte den #Dresscode beachten. Die #Kaffeehauskette Starbucks hat #Angestellte davor gewarnt, sich öffentlich zu den #Antirassismusprotesten zu bekennen. #BLM

Lesenswert!

Tweet von Stephan Anpalagan (@stephanpalagan) um 8. Juni, 08:10 „Die überwältigende Mehrheit der Polizisten hält sich an Recht und Gesetz.“ - so hört man immer wieder.

Ich kann meine Freude kaum verbergen.

Meistens frage ich mich, ob das ein wahnsinnig guter Scherz ist, den ich einfach nicht verstehe.

Dazu mal ein paar Gedanken.

On the Media takes on the cops

No Justice, No Peace

In the midst of a historic week of protests, the national conversation about police is quickly transforming. This week, On the Media looks at the language used here and abroad to describe the "civil unrest" in America. Then, we explore how decades of criminal justice policy decisions brought us to this boiling point. Plus, are human beings, against all odds, actually pretty decent?

1. Karen Attiah [@KarenAttiah], The Washington Post Global Opinions Editor, on how our media would cover American police brutality protests if they were happening abroad. Listen.

2. Elizabeth Hinton [@elizabhinton], historian at Yale University, on the historical roots of American law enforcement. Listen.

3. Rutger Bregman [@rcbregman], author of Humankind: A Hopeful History, on what our policies would like if we believed in the decency of people. Listen.
Full episode (mp3).

Excellent, as per usual.
Bootnote: You might recall Bregman from his 2019 Davos appearance demanding billionaires pay their taxes or his unaired Fox News confrontation with propagandist Tucker Carlson.

What are all of the relevant hashtags for the current situation? I know obviously stuff like #BLM and #Politics, but I'd like to have a semi-comprehensive list, as a reference.

Apparently some forces don’t want people to talk about #BlackLivesMatter, to notice what’s going on, to read and share … #MartialLaw?

Show #solidarity with #BLM but do NOT abandon social networks, and do NOT crowd out news & facts with black squares!
