So defunding the police is a good idea while we all are shut ins. Lord Jesus come soon.

Dear CCN

Please wait until this event plays out completely. Your reporting isn’t close to what is really going on.


You’re back, eh? Still gaslighting. You’ve always been an empty vessel.

Why can’t I be a pilot of a black copter? I took this handle years ago when the tin hat people were all over this site.

Nice try. What is gaslighting? Is that when you light your farts?

And now you’ve become the “tin hat people.”

Interesting. The Paso Robles Daily News described the suspect in more detail.

Well you know sloweb, we’re not to be specific about “color” or “race” in this current culture. Unless of course one is white.

Just sayin…….

I see that they have edited out the additional details in the description. Maybe they will be adding new details, such as D E A D soon.

From my experience with news outlets, no description usually means non-white. It’s sad, but that seems to be the state of delivering the facts now-a-days.

Unless they can be, even thru imaginary reasoning, be determined a minority victim. Then their description is in bold caps.
