I am hating on Jeff Sessions for this…


Hillary is insane…


More Kaepernick nonsense…

Meanwhile protestors mimic this idiot…

IDEA: Play the National Anthem in Charlotte for the next 48 hours and everyone will take a knee.

Release the freakin’ tape…

Scenario 1: The officials in Tulsa released the tape in an officer involved shooting, it doesn’t look good for the police and the officer has been charged.

No riots.

Scenario 2: They have, so far, refused to release the tape in Charlotte and because of that we get multiple different stories

Hours after North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) declared a state of emergency and the National Guard and state troopers moved in, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney resisted calls to release video footage of a police shooting that sparked intense protests in this city.

Family members of Keith Lamont Scott have asked to view video of his shooting and that authorities are trying to accommodate them, Putney said. Attorneys for the relatives said they planned to watch it later in the day.

One of the attorneys, Justin Bamberg, said during an afternoon news conference that Scott’s wife, Rakeyia Scott, witnessed her husband’s death.

“It’s my understanding that his wife saw him get shot and killed,” Bamberg said. “That’s something that she will never, ever forget.”

Putney suggested that his department has no imminent plans to release the video footage to the public, and the Scott family’s attorneys made no promises to reveal its contents once they had seen it.

“Transparency is in the eye of the beholder,” Putney told reporters. “If you think I’m saying we should display a victim’s worst day for public consumption, that is not the transparency I’m speaking of.”

Here is your result.

Multiple police cameras captured what happened on Tuesday, when Scott stepped out of his car and was shot dead by a police officer. And it’s at least possible that those videos might help answer a sharply disputed question: What was Scott holding before he died?

For now, without the footage, there are two incompatible stories.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney said Wednesday that Scott was armed with a gun and ignored orders to drop it:

“The officers gave loud, clear verbal commands, which were also heard by many of the witnesses. They were instructing the subject, once he got out of the vehicle, to drop the weapon. In spite of the verbal commands Mr. Scott exited his vehicle armed with a handgun as the officers continued to yell at him to drop it. He stepped out, posing a threat to the officers, and officer Brentley Vinson subsequently fired his weapon, striking the subject.”

Police say they recovered a weapon at the scene and that witnesses corroborate the officers’ accounts.

But Scott’s family has said he did not have a weapon — that he was sitting in his car reading a book. Reporter Tom Bullock of member station WFAE went to the apartment complex and spoke with witnesses. He reports that their accounts back up the Scott family’s description:

“One person that I spoke with … says that she actually saw the shooting and here’s how she described it: ‘That man had a book. I saw it when it fell off his lap when he got out of the car to hold his hands up to show the police that he didn’t have nothing. It fell off his lap right there in the middle of the street.’ …

“Others said that this was pretty common, that [Scott] would sit waiting for his son at a bus stop … and would often have a book. All of the residents that I spoke with say that they just did not see a gun.”

This makes zero sense, the citizens deserve to see the tape of this shooting AND if the shoot is a good shoot as it appear there is no reason not to.

NOT RELEASING the tape allows people to fill in the gaps with whatever they want and this is exactly what is happening here.

RELEASE THE TAPE.

LOWE’S(T) taxes sought, people are not happy…

Lowe’s is doing exactly what they should be doing, trying to lower their costs

Lowe’s is a home-improvement center behemoth with more than 1,800 stores registering $59.1 billion in annual retail sales in 2015, a nearly 18-percent leap in five years.

But the North Carolina-based chain, in a sweeping effort throughout the U.S., including Alabama, to slash its taxes, wants courts to re-evaluate the market value of its stores, basically assigning them the same value as an empty building.

Alabama is no different…

In Alabama, Lowe’s attorneys have filed lawsuits seeking value reductions for 27 home centers. The lawsuits include stores in smaller cities such as Muscle Shoals and Hartselle and those in metropolitan cities such as Birmingham and Mobile.

This is obviously making people upset.

“The loss of money would just be astronomical,” said Sonny Brasfield, executive director of the Association of County Commissions of Alabama.

Brasfield said the state could lose roughly $1.5 million annually in revenues based on the number of Lowe’s challenging their assessments.

“We certainly believe that other similar retailers will follow suit and that the loss of revenue would snow ball,” Brasfield said.

It’s about school revenue and if Lowe’s wins others will follow…

What can Alabama do?

Alabama has already made some pre-emptive strikes to shore up its position.

The Legislature, during the 2016 spring session, approved allowing county commissions to hire outside counsel to handle commercial property tax appeals.Before that, Alabama law tasked individual district attorneys with defending the cases.

 

[…]

There is no indication that the Alabama Legislature will introduce additional legislation.

This will be a prickly issue but if Lowe’s win, I assume the legislature will do something about this.

 

 

CNN uses Albertville, Alabama to highlight America’s “immigration divide”…

It’s perplexing to me…

The issue is summed up in the first few paragraphs…

There’s one question Sandra Langlois is sick of hearing in job interviews.

“Do you speak Spanish?”

Langlois doesn’t — and doesn’t think she should have to.

At 42, she already speaks two languages. Born in Germany, she moved to Pennsylvania as a child and learned to speak English fluently. She thought that would be enough to get a job in the United States.

Now, as she waits for an interview at the Albertville unemployment office, she’s not sure it will be.

Hispanic immigrants, she says, have transformed the state she’s called home for decades. And the ones who came to the United States illegally, she says, make a tough job market even tougher.

She did everything right but she still loses…

Hispanic immigrants, she says, have transformed the state she’s called home for decades. And the ones who came to the United States illegally, she says, make a tough job market even tougher.

[…]

As an immigrant herself, Langlois says she’s had to follow strict rules and make sure her documents are in order when she applies for jobs. And she resents immigrants who came to the United States illegally for finding ways to skirt the system.

The article spends the next million words explaining how “wrong” she and how this is an issue with only white people, showing this poll at the end…

untitled

But the stark reality here is simple, these illegals don’t belong in Albertville but they aren’t going anywhere.
