You Know Who Else Took Shelter in a Bunker?

Hair Furor spent an hour cowering in the White House bunker:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Secret Service agents rushed President Donald Trump to a White House bunker on Friday night as hundreds of protesters gathered outside the executive mansion, some of them throwing rocks and tugging at police barricades.

Trump spent nearly an hour in the bunker, which was designed for use in emergencies like terrorist attacks, according to a Republican close to the White House who was not authorized to publicly discuss private matters and spoke on condition of anonymity. The account was confirmed by an administration official who also spoke on condition of anonymity.

The abrupt decision by the agents underscored the rattled mood inside the White House, where the chants from protesters in Lafayette Park could be heard all weekend and Secret Service agents and law enforcement officers struggled to contain the crowds.

The Minneapolis Police Officer Who Knelt On George Floyd’s Neck Has Been Charged With Murder

Would have been nice if he was held accountable immediately.

Derek Chauvin, the white Minneapolis officer who knelt on George Floyd’s neck as he said he couldn’t breathe before dying, has been charged with murder.

Floyd’s death, captured on video as he struggled for air and begged officers to stop so he could breath, has sparked days of unrest across the country as thousands of people have gone to the streets in protest of police killings of unarmed black men.

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said that while the investigation is ongoing, “we felt it appropriate to focus on the most dangerous perpetrator.”

A criminal complaint was expected to be released later in the day, but Freeman said Chauvin was charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter.

The three officers remain investigation, although Freeman said he anticipates they too will face charges.

A CNN Crew was Arrested in Minneapolis

A different crew was not.  Guess which color the arrested reporter was?


State police detained CNN correspondent Omar Jimenez, his producer and his photojournalist shortly after 5 a.m. CT (6 a.m. ET) as Jimenez was reporting live from a street south of downtown, near where a police precinct was earlier set ablaze.
Jimenez could be seen holding his CNN badge while reporting, identifying himself as a reporter, and telling the officers the crew would move wherever officers needed them to. An officer gripped his arm as Jimenez talked, then put him in handcuffs.
“We can move back to where you like. We are live on the air here. … Put us back where you want us. We are getting out of your way — wherever you want us (we’ll) get out of your way,” Jimenez said to police before he was led away.

Here’s the official tweet from Minnesota’s State Patrol how it only took them an hour or so to figure out that they were really a CNN crew. It can be tricky because a lot of protesters carry tens of thousands of dollars worth of camera and audio equipment to blend in.
