Yep.  THAT is how most of the Southeastern US rolls.  :lol:  We're pretty mellow and easygoing, live and let live, until you try to harm us.

Hopefully it opens her eyes about the crimes that are happening. 

Thats what happened after Portland Mayor Wheeler had Antifa try to burn down his condo building.

After he actually went to a riot snd threw stones with them. And de-funded the police. Removed gang enforcement. Let those arrested go with no charges... Then... they turned on him for not enough, fast enough...

Now he re-funded the police. Is on a police hiring spree (Which isnt really working), and is clearing out the druggies, and insane, homeless. Hed make a tolerable Republican now.

Not enough fast enough though, as the city hemorrhages jobs and businesses. Maybe in Five years things might start turning around, if he can finish cleaning up the town.

Georgia is taking steps against squatters:

 

Gov. Brian Kemp, R-Ga., said Wednesday he plans to sign a bill that would make squatting a crime in Georgia as squatters continue to frustrate homeowners across the nation. 

Kemp joined "Fox & Friends" to discuss the legislation, and said he would be signing the Georgia Squatter Reform Act on Wednesday, which would allow property owners to go after squatters for damages, in addition to speeding up the eviction process. 

"Unfortunately, bad actors have figured out ways to take advantage of this, exploit, really the process that goes through the local government. So we’re passing legislation that I’m going to sign right after this interview to stiffen the penalties, to go after these folks, to also speed up the eviction process. But, also, allow the property owner to go after these squatters for damages," Kemp said. 

Fox News' Ainsley Earhardt said squatting would become a misdemeanor criminal defense, punishable by a year in jail, under the new law. She added that squatters could face a $1,000 fine, sometimes in addition to possible jail time, and if they forge a fake lease, they could be charged with a felony. 
 

"This is insanity, that people just think they can come in and take over somebody's home. I mean it's just outrageous," Kemp said. "It really points to, as we've seen around the country, the lawlessness that's gone on under the Biden administration." 

Gov. Ron DeSantis. R-Fla., also passed a bill in Florida that eliminates squatters' rights in March. 

Asked if Georgia's bill goes further than the Florida bill, Kemp said he believed it was very similar. 

"I’m sure it’s much of the same, just using the legal powers that we have to push up the process. I mean, look, it’s insane that it even happens to start with. But, then, when you can’t remove these people from your own property, as a property owner myself, it goes to the insanity of the world that we’re living in now and I know that Governor DeSantis isn’t going to put up with that and neither are we," Kemp said.

I'm not certain I believe her story but it may be true.

 

A Democratic state senator in Minnesota who was charged with first-degree burglary claimed on Tuesday that the incident at her stepmother’s house was a misunderstanding stemming from dementia and its associated paranoia.

Sen. Nicole Mitchell, 49, was arrested at a home in the 700 block of Granger Road in Detroit Lakes early Monday after police responded around 4:45 a.m. to a homeowner's 911 call. Mitchell was found dressed in black clothing and a black hat, and acknowledged that she entered through a basement window, according to a criminal complaint.

Mitchell said she entered the home but did not explain why she entered without permission in the middle of the night.

"Unfortunately, I startled this close relative, exacerbating paranoia, and I was accused of stealing, which I absolutely deny," the state senator wrote.

Mitchell allegedly entered through a window and told investigators that she was trying to get her late father's ashes, photos, a flannel shirt and other items of sentimental value, the criminal complaint said. Mitchell claimed that her stepmother refused to give her the items. 

"I was just trying to get a couple of my dad's things because you wouldn't talk to me anymore," Mitchell allegedly said to her stepmother as she was arrested, according to the criminal complaint, which also quoted her as saying, "I know I did something bad." 

The complaint stated that one of the laptops found in Mitchell's black backpack, which was propping open a window, belonged to her stepmother. The stepmother told officers that she did not give the laptop to Mitchell, though Mitchell claimed otherwise.

Still many on the left support the criminal squatters:

 

Democratic Arizona Gov. Katie Hobbs has vetoed a bill aimed at strengthening the rights of homeowners looking to evict squatters from their property, despite the bill being passed in bipartisan fashion and as a wave of squatting cases continue to terrify homeowners across the country. 

The bill, SB 1129, would have permitted a homeowner to request law enforcement to immediately remove a squatter from their property, had the squatter invaded a home and unlawfully claimed a right to live there.

Police, acting on an owner’s affidavit, would have had the permission to immediately go in and have someone evicted.

"Today I vetoed Senate Bill 1129," Hobbs wrote. "This bill fails to leverage existing legal mechanisms, respect the due process rights of lawful tenants, and minimize unintended consequences such as for victims of domestic violence."

She did not expand on her reasoning. 

The bill was crafted by state Sen. Wendy Rogers, who slammed Hobbs’ decision, the latest in a spate of vetoes issued by the governor. 

"This bill has absolutely nothing to do with landlord-tenant law and has exemptions for family members and anyone with an agreement to cohabitate," Rogers said in a statement, questioning whether Hobbs had even read the text of the bill.

Rogers said that criminals are scheming to take over homes that aren't theirs, posing a threat to the safety of homeowners and infringing on their private property rights.

State Sen. Justine Wadsack said she personally encountered a squatter occupying a home when he was working as a realtor and showing a client.

"It was a terrifying threat to my safety, the safety of my clients, as well as to the homeowners," Wadsack said. "When I called the police, I was told there was not much they could do. It's a shame Gov. Katie Hobbs has vetoed yet another piece of commonsense bipartisan legislation."

The veto was one of 10 measures Hobbs’ nixed on Tuesday, bringing the number of bills she has rejected this legislative session to 52. She issued a record-breaking 143 last year, thumping former Gov. Janet Napolitano's single-year veto record of 58 in 2005.

A Man Killed Four Cops And Broke ‘Gun Control’ Laws, But Media Aren’t Invested In The Story For Some Reason

Terry Clark Hughes is black, which isn’t convenient for the media’s perpetual campaign against gun rights and law enforcement.

A white man shot black law enforcement officers this week, ultimately killing four of them and wounding four more, and he did it as they were attempting to arrest him for breaking “gun control” laws. Where are all the stories about “white supremacy” and “assault weapons bans”?

Wait, never mind. The suspect is black and all four victims are white. Nothing to see here, after all!

We have a whole thread on that:

Edit to add: It's only been a few days since the incident and we can't talk about gun control lest some of the easily offended here get upset about "politicizing something before the bodies cool."

Police find hundreds of thousands of dollars of stolen merchandise from smash and grab looters. I suspect some of that merchandise is also what is being taken from trains in Los Angeles. So I think this being crimes of opportunity can be dismissed.

All that and they only arrested 1 person?   They need to prosecute with a heavy hand.

Hilarious!

I was thinking of it from another angle. In that she's saying black people don't use headlights, turn signals, registration, insurance, drivers licenses, and such. Because... victims... dont need to.

Quote

The exception to this policy is if the stop DIRECTLY resulted from a public-safety incident.. normal violations (registration violations, headlights, signal lights, etc) WOULDN'T be counted as a threat.

Theres about 42 million people who identify as "black". Not all of them of African decent.

So, removing kids, thats like two days each, which isnt so bad. I took a week off when my mom died. People who live in constant knowledge of victimhood should get a couple days off a year to depressurize.
