    Protesters marching in Black Trans Liberation rally vandalize East Village restaurant, scare patrons
    By Thomas Tracy

    A group of protesters vandalized an East Village restaurant, damaging the outdoor dining structure and harassing customers, police said.

    The crew approached Jackdaw NYC on Second Ave. near 14th St. around 8:45 p.m. Thursday, threw drinking glasses onto the ground and defaced the outdoor dining booths and windows with spray paint, markers and sharpies, cops said.

    They scrawled phrases on the windows, including “Black Women Matter” and “Black Kids Matter,” officials said.

    They also yelled and harassed workers and patrons, but no injuries were reported. A short time later, the group shoved someone to the ground nearby, but the person wasn’t injured, cops said.

    The belligerent crew was part of a group of roughly 50 people taking part in a Black Trans Liberation NYC rally at the historic Stonewall Inn in the West Village...

    A small protest caused delayed police response and ended with some broken windows in downtown Portland.

    On Friday, February 12, 2021 at about 8:00p.m., a protest of about 30-50 people gathered at Director Park, 815 Southwest Park Avenue. The group marched to Central Precinct at 1111 Southwest 2nd Avenue, where the group began throwing objects and yelling at officers. There were police vehicles parked outside the precinct. As officers went out to move their cars in an effort to prevent them from being damaged, the officers were pelted with icy snowballs by participants.

    In an effort to avoid confrontation and de-escalate the situation, and due to lack of available resources, officers remained out of sight as much as possible. However, officers were forced to monitor in case the group became more violent or caused damage to city property. While officers were occupied with that, there were calls stacking up in the precinct, including numerous calls for welfare checks on houseless community members who were exposed to the frigid weather. Among other duties, officers were facilitating getting those individuals to warming shelters if they wished.

    The precinct, which is the only police facility open to the public 24 hours a day, was locked for security. As officers from other precincts approached to access the intake for the Multnomah County Detention Center, the hostile group surrounded their cars. Traffic was very limited due to the treacherous weather, but the group stood in the street blocking the way.

    At about 10:45p.m., the group went on a short march. Officers discovered that windows were broken by participants of the crowd during the march. A coffee shop in the 1300 block of Southwest 3rd Avenue and a medical clinic in the 900 block of Southwest 5th Avenue were damaged (photos).

    The crowd dissipated by 11:30p.m. No arrests have been made and no one was injured. If anyone has information about the suspects who vandalized the businesses or harassed officers, please refer to case number 21-39817 and e-mail crimetips@portlandoregon.gov.

    The Acting Secretary of Homeland Security has issued a National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin due to a heightened threat environment across the United States, which DHS believes will persist in the weeks following the successful Presidential Inauguration.

    Duration

    Issued: January 27, 2021 11:00 am
    Expires: April 30, 2021 01:00 pm


    Details
    • Throughout 2020, Domestic Violent Extremists (DVEs) targeted individuals with opposing views engaged in First Amendment-protected, non-violent protest activity. DVEs motivated by a range of issues, including anger over COVID-19 restrictions, the 2020 election results, and police use of force have plotted and on occasion carried out attacks against government facilities.
    • Long-standing racial and ethnic tension—including opposition to immigration—has driven DVE attacks, including a 2019 shooting in El Paso, Texas that killed 23 people.
    • DHS is concerned these same drivers to violence will remain through early 2021 and some DVEs may be emboldened by the January 6, 2021 breach of the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. to target elected officials and government facilities.
    • DHS remains concerned that Homegrown Violent Extremists (HVEs) inspired by foreign terrorist groups, who committed three attacks targeting government officials in 2020, remain a threat.
    • Threats of violence against critical infrastructure, including the electric, telecommunications and healthcare sectors, increased in 2020 with violent extremists citing misinformation and conspiracy theories about COVID-19 for their actions.
    • DHS, as well as other Federal agencies and law enforcement partners will continue to take precautions to protect people and infrastructure across the United States.
    • DHS remains committed to preventing violence and threats meant to intimidate or coerce specific populations on the basis of their religion, race, ethnicity, identity or political views.
    • DHS encourages state, local, tribal, and territorial homeland security partners to continue prioritizing physical security measures, particularly around government facilities, to protect people and critical infrastructure.
    How You Can Help
    • We ask the public to report suspicious activity and threats of violence, including online activity, to local law enforcement, FBI Field Offices, or their local Fusion Center.
    • Your choice can make a difference. Choose non-violent ways to make your voice heard and support friends and family in doing the same.
    • Communities are strongest when they are not divided: Strengthen your community by standing together against violence.
    Be Prepared
    • Avoiding large crowds, including protests, is safest due to ongoing pandemic conditions. However, if taking part in protests do so peacefully, safely, and wear masks.
    • Be responsible for your personal safety. Make note of your surroundings and security personnel. Carry emergency contact as well as medical and other needs information with you.
    • Connect, Plan, Train, and Report to prepare businesses & employees.
    Stay Informed
    • Local, state and federal agencies will provide specific information about emerging threats as additional information is identified. The public is encouraged to listen to local law enforcement and public safety officials.
    • Last year, DHS released a Homeland Threat Assessment to the public examining the threat environment through 2021.
    • The DHS Lexicon on terrorism includes terminology for DVEs and HVEs.

    LAPD chief calls out deadly crime surge



    JAN. 16, 2021
    5:51 PM

    The first two weeks of 2021 saw 59 shooting victims in Los Angeles compared with seven last year, L.A. Police Chief Michel Moore said in a tweet Saturday, calling attention to a deadly crime surge that has coincided with a devastating pandemic.

    Moore’s tweet provided an exact comparison with the prior year, but an earlier Twitter post, from the police headquarters account, reported 68 shootings and 24 homicides, with the total of shootings “being the highest year-to-date start in over 10 years.”

    The ongoing pandemic — which has kept many businesses closed and many people at home — may be one factor.

    Utah Man Charged in Federal Court Following Events at the United States Capitol


    WASHINGTON, D.C. – A Utah man was charged today in federal court in the District of Columbia in connection with the riots at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021.

    John Earle Sullivan was charged by complaint with one count of knowingly entering or remaining in any restricted building or grounds without lawful authority, one count of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds, and one count of interfering with law enforcement engaged in the lawful performance of their official duties incident to and during the commission of civil disorder. The defendant was arrested today in Utah.

    The Complaint alleges that during the events at the U.S. Capitol, Sullivan, wearing a ballistics vest and gas mask, entered the U.S. Capitol through a window that had been broken out, pushing past U.S. Capitol Police once inside. The Complaint also alleges that Sullivan admits to filming and being depicted in video footage that shows him present, outside of the Speaker’s Lobby within the U.S. Capitol, at the shooting of a woman by a U.S. Capitol Police officer.

    The details contained in the charging documents are allegations. Defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

    The case is being prosecuted by the U.S Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and the Counterterrorism Section of the Department of Justice’s National Security Division. The case is being investigated by the FBI’s Salt Lake City and Washington Field Offices, the U.S. Capitol Police Department, and the Metropolitan Police Department. Valuable assistance was provided by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Utah.

    The ATF and FBI continue to urge the public to report suspected use of explosive devices, or violent, destructive acts associated with the recent unrest. Anyone with information can call 1-888-ATF-TIPS (1-888-283-8477), email ATFTips@atf.gov or submit information anonymously via ReportIt.com.

    The FBI is looking for individuals who may have incited or promoted violence of any kind. Anyone with digital material or tips can call 1-800-CALL-FBI (800-225-5324) or submit images or videos at fbi.gov/USCapitol.

    The details contained in the charging documents are allegations. Defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

    Facebook’s Sandberg deflected blame for Capitol riot, but new evidence shows how platform played role

    Fliers and hashtags promoting the pro-Trump rally circulated on Facebook and Instagram in the days and weeks beforehand

    By
    Elizabeth Dwoskin

    Jan. 13, 2021 at 3:27 p.m. EST

    In the days leading up to last week’s march on the Capitol, supporters of President Trump promoted it extensively on Facebook and Facebook-owned Instagram and used the services to organize bus trips to Washington. More than 100,000 users posted hashtags affiliated with the movement prompted by baseless claims of election fraud, including #StopTheSteal and #FightForTrump.

    The details, emerging from researchers who have combed the service in recent days, shed new light on how Facebook services were used to bring attention to and boost attendance at the rally, which turned violent when a pro-Trump mob stormed the Capitol while Congress was in session. The attack resulted in the death of a Capitol Police officer and four other people.

    Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg has sought to deflect blame, noting the role of smaller, right-leaning services such as Parler and Gab.

    At the beginning of the pandemic we took the action to allow only a very few people to join, mostly those with a medical, teaching, or journalist related field. We did this because we learned in the 2009 H1H1 pandemic that a large number of new posters renders the site unmanageable. We have a great team here and we can operate well as is.

    We have no new members in the last week. lol

    Trump backers seek online refuges after big tech backlash

    January 14, 2021


    snip

    Some conservative users had briefly found refuge on Parler, only to see the conservative alternative to Facebook go dark Monday when Amazon stopped providing hosting services. Parler sued Amazon over the ban; Amazon responded by arguing the platform’s “unwillingness” to remove posts threatens public safety.

    The crackdown prompted many conservative posters to consider more obscure alternative platforms such as Gab, which has marketed itself to Trump supporters. Gab CEO Andrew Torba, who describes himself as a “Christian entrepreneur and American populist," posted Wednesday that 1.7 million users signed up in the past four days.

    snip

    Other platforms attracting Trump supporters include Signal and Telegram, messaging services already used by individuals and groups with different ideologies around the world, as well as a growing list of lesser-known platforms, such as Rumble, MeWe and CloutHub.

    Telegram announced Wednesday that it had more than 500 million users, with more than 25 million signing up since Sunday.

    Several Trump social media stars banished from the mainstream platforms have launched their own channels on the service, gaining thousands of followers in just days. A channel that claims to be run by conservative attorney L. Lin Wood Jr., who littered Twitter with false claims about the election and called on Parler for Vice President Mike Pence to be killed, has gained more than 100,000 subscribers since its first message was posted Monday. QAnon and far-right channels also have seen their membership boosted by thousands this week.

    I do not know the legal ramifications. I guess it was a private site since the posts were not public. Downloading the entire data base of a private site is probably some level of "stealing". It sounds by the article that you linked above there may have been some legal copyright issues with photos and videos. I also have no idea about this. Again, as to the content, there may be some legal problems with that. I never saw it so I can not comment. The server company has the database unless the owners of the site deleted it while they still had access. I suppose the US government could subpoena the server company to obtain the database. They could review it and determine if any laws were broken.

    To me, she's a white hacker. "she" is a guess, I have not been to see ... there is a legal problem, and this forum should give itself the right to deal with law ... Health, like the law, is politics in a way, but there is a way and a way to talk about it. In this place, there has always been respect. So can we talk about this legal problem, or not? I write this knowing that white hackers or not can access my computer. that's the real problem ...
