Sounds like he's trying to introduce a bill like China's where they ARREST and JAIL students/citizens for protesting. But we already have laws against inciting riots but this is another way to imprison blacks and others who demonstrate against the govt. They are being so sneaky but clearly not smart. But!

The new Education cabinet likes vouchers but will not improve public schools. The new EPA cabinet will be run by a person who cares nothing for the environment and so on. If you go outside, you may be seen as an enemy combatant if you do not praise the Supreme Leader.

Tim Wolfe is full of sh*t. It took him almost a month to apologize for what his driver did (clipping two of the protesters) -- almost a whole damn month!!!!! Can you believe that grade A bullsh*t? If he had clipped a dog, the owner would've received an apology from him a LOT sooner I'm sure. And the nerve to say, "I know it looked like I didn't care"…. it looked like he didn't care because HE DIDN'T (a**hole). Good riddance .

When people are bona fide citizens of a country, they don't get treated in the manner we've always gotten treated in this country. These Caucasians have NEVER treated us as sovereign citizens of america; because we're NOT!!! To white people we're niggers and that's the way they've always treated us.

I'd been following this story very closely. They got rid of Dr. Batts, who was open to solving the police-community issues, and replaced him with his assistant. The interim chief, Kevin Davis, has been extra hard on protesters and other assembled outside of the pre-trial hearings for the 6 Freddie Gray police cases. I'll post more on this as it becomes available.
