Militia Takeover in Oregon
Armed insurgents have taken over a US government building, stating their preparedness to engage in lethal violence.
Oh wait... ! It's a bunch of white rednecks.
Someone send out for burgers, hot chocolate and fluffy slippers, they're probably getting cold in there.
"Burns residents confront militia over fears of violence"
How dare they do that in their own town, out of fear for the safety of their families! Don't they know if you're white and have guns you can come in and do whatever you want?

... oh sorry... that was actually the sports news...
Meanwhile in other recent police news from around the country, we wrap up the case of a 12 year old child who was shot dead for being in possession of a toy at a recreation centre while black, after being indulged with a generous 2-3 seconds to respond to hails by police officers.
The officer/victim who shot the boy - previously found unfit for duty and recommended for dismissal at another police department, and rejected by four others - has been found to have no case to answer by a grand jury.
The parents of the slain toy-wielder have been accused by the country prosecutor of having "economic motives" for expecting justice for their child, and found guilty.
Good night and God bless America.
