    Suspect at large after shooting on Texas freeway during rush hour kills 2

    Two people got out of the vehicle that struck the first vehicle and one of the two began firing at the car as it rolled downhill. When the vehicle came to a stop, the shooter "made it all the way to the car" and continued firing rounds into the front windshield, police said.

    A lot of people aren't going to like this but I'll say it anyway. Treating the world like a trash barrel is a non caucasian thing. I've lived and/or worked in Chelsea for going on a half a century now. I know we're all supposed to say that we're all the same and we all know individuals who dont live up to the stereotypes, etc, but it is what it is. The attitude of the people who live in those neighborhoods when outsiders come in and clean up is "well its about time". They do what they want because they see it as someone else's job to clean up after them. I guarentee it.

    As I said before in this thread, go back to those neighborhoods a month after the clean up and it will look like they were never there.

    (Bridge over the Reservoir #2 spillway, Naugatuck State Forest, West Block. Litter all around there, on the spillway, and the hill down to it.)

    We also have a problem with Latinos from Bridgeport (and I can say with certainty that's who it is, by what I've found picking up their trash) coming up to Waldo State Park in Southbury and not only leaving garbage everywhere but actually shitting all over the picnic area. Coming down the red trail towards the lake and picnic area, there are scads of little white TP mounds.

    At least they use tp to wipe. They must be second generation.

    FWIW it's not exclusively a Latin thing. I'm around people from all over the world all day every day. At any given moment it's not unusual for me to be the only white guy in sight. My experience is whites tend to make an effort to dispose of trash the right way and others just drop it wherever they are.

    London and large parts of the south of England are suffering from a widespread 'power cut' described as "a major incident" by electricity providers.





    We are currently experiencing a major incident on the national electricity infrastructure. We are in the process of restoring customers now and will provide further updates as soon as possible for specific areas We are sorry for the inconvenience this is causing.

    — WPD (@wpduk) August 9, 2019
    We're aware of a power cut affecting a large area of London and South East. We believe this is due to a failure to National Grid's network, which is affecting our customers. We may not be able to answer individual tweets at this time. Please keep an eye on our feed for updates.

    TRUTH BOMB!'

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) slammed her ex-chief of staff
    Saikat Chakrabarti on Wednesday over his 'divisive' comments comparing
    moderate Democrats to southern slave-owning Democrats.

    In a now-deleted June 27 tweet, Chakrabarti accused centrist dems of
    being "hell-bent to do to black and brown people today what the old
    Southern Democrats did in the 40s."

    Whoa. @AOC’s chief just deleted this. pic.twitter.com/xRJphPAkwb
    — Matt Whitlock (@mattdizwhitlock) June 27, 2019

    "I think it was divisive," AOC told the New York Daily News. "I believe in criticizing stances, but I don’t believe in specifically targeting members."

    What kind of logic we follow when we send $ to countries where women produce 3-4 kids on average while average American citizen can't possibly afford more than 2 children? Our policy of throwing money anywhere just to be cute has to end!

    our policy on foreign aid should be that until there are 0 homeless Americans, with vets prioritized, there will be 0 dollars available for 3rd world shithole aid.

    Did you ever fly an airplane full of white people and used the bathroom close to the end of the flight?
    Did you ever see young white high school student dumping entire bag from Burger King on your front lawn?
    Did you ever see an airplane or the movie theater few minutes after the end?

    Snap out of it!

    Ain't happening now! This $hole aid ends in some African oligarch's account in London anyway. There is money to cut ASAP! China is colonizing Africa and we are making sure they have plenty of cheap labor over there.

    Dude. They're SHITTING. At Waldo State Park, in the Picnic area. Not a designated loo. Where they - and others - eat. And leaving cubic feet of garbage behind per family. Not the same as some wrappers in the cinema.

    I think it's a cultural thing. You don't see people dropping trash in China or Japan.

    It’s a lack of respect thing.

    My neighbors and their friends drop cigarette butts in my front yard all the time and they are white.

    Well, hell, they're right. The cleanup crews are out every night in the "good" neighborhoods picking up white people's trash. It's bad enough the white people were given the "good" neighborhoods in the first place, the lack of cleanup in Chelsea only compounds the systemic racism.

    Do you pick up their butts or do you let them remain where they lie?

    My point is some people pick up other people's trash while other people throw their own trash on the ground.

    All things being equal it's better to live somewhere where people pick up other people's trash than somewhere where everyone throws their trash on the ground.

    I live on a circle. I regularly pick up the empty soda bottles and sandwich wrappers deposited roadside by landscapers.

    I know youre joking, but you know whats even worse is the places with the trash problems typically have DPW, summer youth program workers, community service workers, etc assigned to go around picking up trash all day while the places that are for the most part litter free have absolutely no one doing that. One place has a small army of people regularly picking up trash and they cant even keep up, another place has no one because theres nothing for them to do in the first place.

    Its more of an urban vs rural thing than ethnicity. People from the city litter more, the city streets are proof of that. Head on out into the country though, and there is hardly any litter at all.
