    Protests erupt across country; Black militia member accidentally shoots comrades in park

    Saturday BLM protests unfolded across the country on Saturday, with tensions flaring in major cities including Portland, Seattle, Chicago and Louisville, Kentucky.

    H/T: Zero Hedge

    The Seattle Police Department announced on Friday that residents and business owners are essentially on their own, after the City Council banned the use of pepper spray and other 'less lethal tools' to disperse crowds.

    “Simply put, the legislation gives officers NO ability to safely intercede to preserve property in the midst of a large, violent crowd,” reads a letter from Seattle Chief of Police, Carmen Best. “Seattle Police will have an adjusted deployment in response to any demonstrations this weekend – as I will never ask our officers to risk their personal safety to protect property without the tools to do so in a safe way,” he added.

    Meanwhile, in Chicago:

    Louisville dealt with opposing, armed militia groups who came with in yards of each other downtown. According to USA Today:

    More than 300 members of the Atlanta-based Black militia NFAC, or "Not F**king Around Coalition” came to Louisville demanding justice for 26-year-old Breonna Taylor, an ER technician who was fatally shot by officers in March.

    The group came close to 50 far-right “Three Percenter” militia members, who were also heavily armed. Police kept the sides apart and tensions eventually dissipated. Both militias had said they wanted to avoid violence. 

    Cries of "Black lives matter" were heard through downtown. One man yelled “Don’t fire unless you’re fired upon.”

    And finally... Oregon.
