At the beginning of 2020 I was pretty s Sandpoint
At the beginning of 2020 I was pretty sure this year would be the same as the rest, sure I had ambitions for it like I did every other year, but they just sorta blended together, like they always did.
I never put much thought into how this year would be, because it just sorta goes by and before you know it it’s January first and you're wishing for a happy new year!
That is not what 2020 is about at all.
2020 is filled with tears and anger and such anguish it was criminal, the things that we have allowed to go on, they are just terrible. It’s not even half-way through the year and it already sucks!
One thing I knew for sure was that January first was the day I said to myself- "Hey maybe this year won't suck so badly."
Nope, somehow we managed to make it worse than before! I’m actually laughing while I write this because its just crazy how much we can manage to screw stuff up.
My dog is looking at me like I’m crazy right now, chewing on an antler and looking at my hands as they clack on the keyboard. I gave him a smile and all he did was tilt his head cutely.
I still have no reason for writing this, it’s kinda pointless, but at the same time I never sit back and just enjoy writing anymore, it’s always on a deadline in my head, I don’t enjoy a lot anymore, but maybe someday I can look ahead and say, "Yeah, life is gonna be good to me" It’s a far off thought, but I still hope that it happens.
Mason (my border-collie puppy) is sitting next to my dad right now, or not, he just moved up next to me again, chewing on a toy squirrel now, he was something in my life that I really hope I never forget, by the time I read over this again, he’ll be too old, or passed away by then, but that doesn’t mean I won’t miss him, because I know that I will.
He's a good dog, he sticks by me, and we get each other, he’s a little weird and he’s standoffish sometimes, but I still love him. That’s the things about life that I’m still realizing today, something’s aren't going to be close to you, they’ll be somewhere in-between, They’ll find their place among your life, and you will either pull them along for the ride or you’ll let them be.
People are so fascinating, and everyday I am proved correctly, what they do, what they say, what they think, how they feel, how they live life.
It’s such an interesting thing.
I know I am a human too, but on some level I know that people don’t view the world the way that I do, I’m open, in a way that most people find gross. I see everything from everyone’s perspective, because I almost feel like I’ve been where they were sometime in my life.
Even if I know that’s physically impossible, I like to think, ‘Hey, maybe they have a point, they have an opinion too, they are a person too, they have a life, why should their opinion mean less just because I don’t agree with it?’
That’s the thing about most people, they think that they are always right, and that is just asinine. You cannot always be correct, everyone has something going on in their life-big or small it doesn’t matter, and they have opinions on those subjects, and they have values and morals, and all these things about them that make them who they are.
I like to think that people are like rocks, some of them are completely put together, whole, they know where they’re going, and then you have some who are broken, beyond repair, but they are still rocks. then you have those who are worn down, exhausted from being worked so hard in life, and honestly I know that is how some people are. Then there are some that have odd shapes or colors, they may be different, but they are still rocks, and if there is nothing wrong with that rock, and the way it is, the way it looks, then there should be nothing wrong with it compared to other rocks.
We are all rocks, whole;broken;worn-down;oddly-shaped;different-mindset;different-color. It doesn’t matter, we are all one in the same, and if you were to look at a beach, all you’d see is rocks right? They're all the same right? It doesn’t matter if they have pointy edges or if they’re big or small or light or dark, or somewhere in-between, they're all rocks right? You’d just look at it and say,
“Wow, that is a lot of rocks.”
Because we are together, and we all make up that beach, that wonderful beach that people should love, where they come to smile, and laugh, and be happy with other people, we weren’t meant to fight, if we were, we’d be bullet proof; but we’re not, we are meant for better things, and this is not what we were put here for.
Each of us has a purpose, it doesn’t matter if it’s huge or tiny, we do our part, and then our beach shall flourish because we worked for something greater, for something beautiful.
This is not what we were meant for, we were meant for better, we were meant for something, but this is not it.
Peace is an option, so is war, I know which one I’d choose, how about you? Would you choose love over hate this time?
Mason would choose love, that much I know.

Derek Chauvin - A Disgrace To The Uniform: The Embattled Officer Did More Than Kill George Floyd
Mr. Chauvin, now ironically in a jail in which he put so many others, has and always had serious issues. It is apparent that for some reason they were all but completely ignored.
The 44 year old, in his 19-year career with the Minneapolis Police Department, was the subject of 17 investigations and the respondent to 12 formal complaints against him. The documents pertaining to said are heavily redacted but still reveal pressing problems.
His most obvious display of excessive force occurred in 2007. It involved a mother and her infant (with the family's german shepherd) on their way home from a local grocery store. Officer Chauvin and an unnamed partner forced the mother to stop. Initially she was unsure of the cause. It was cited as her driving 10 miles over the speed limit. Then without another word exchanged the officers opened her door and began to pull her out of the minivan - well before she had the opportunity to unlatch her seatbelt. She was pulled through her restraints out to the street and then into the back of their squadcar. With her child crying loudly in the background she insistantly asked why she was arrested. After a long period of his refusal to answer Chauvin muttered that her vechicle "fit a description".
There were also incidents with shootings in which his use of firepower was questionable. 1 of the 3 or so reported described him as chasing and firing at a man who was already running from another (presumably non-police) shooter.
Those things coupled with the fact that he was perpetually in massive debt (which was brought into his marriage at its start) and the years-long dissatisfaction of and relational distance from his wife evidently took its toll on his mindset and the community he swore to protect and serve.
It was said by onlookers (primarily the couple's neighbors) that the Chauvins' relationship had been under visible strain for years and that Chauvin's wife had been looking for some time for the right opportunity to divorce him. Conflicting schedules and conflicting views caused further estrangement between them. Also Mrs. Chauvin bore concern for the children she had from a previous marriage. What was done to George Floyd was the last straw, finally giving her the courage to leave. She in disgust over her former husband's actions and the desire to make a clean break decided to forego spousal support and petitioned the court to change back to her previous name.
After analysis of the video that rocked the world, Mr. Chauvin's indictment was necessarily moved up from manslaughter to second-degree murder plus the previous charge. A group of bystanders are heard pleading for Mr. Floyd's life as Chauvin continues to drive his knee into his victim's neck, fatally asphyxiating him. The other three officers on the scene were taken in as co-conspirators and will share the same fate as the first. As appalling as Chauvin's example is, it seems that his presence on the force and this case are just the tip of the iceberg.
The death of an African American at the hands of a policeman provoked massive protests in dozens of US cities
Demonstrations continue in 75 cities across the US that protest the murder of an African-American, George Floyd, by police in Minnesota. Stocks often spill over into violent clashes with the police: demonstrators set fire to cars, smash shops and throw firecrackers. President Donald Trump was forced to go down the bunker for a while.
The office building in the very center of Washington caught fire just half an hour before the curfew in the US capital. According to the decision of the mayor of the year, Muriel Bowser, it is forbidden to be on the streets from 23:00 to 6 am, and all residents have no right to leave their homes.

Rage over car park led to fatal headbutt at Lower Hutt supermarket - Stuff.co.nz
A man has been jailed after fatally headbutting a man, all over a supermarket parking space.
A judge has refused to accept excuses for a fatal headbutting of a man in a dispute over a parking space. Emilio Richard Mac Tanirau Whaanga, 23, pleaded guilty to manslaughter, for having headbutted the 55-year-old victim in a Lower Hutt supermarket car park on December 3. Tanirau Whaanga was sentenced on Monday at the High Court in Wellington to three years and three months' jail. At the request of defence lawyer Chris Nicholls, Justice Christine Grice watched security camera footage of the fatal incident. The victim's family stayed out of court while the recording was played. The man's name was suppressed at his family's request. READ MORE:* Assault charge upgraded to manslaughter after incident at Queensgate, Lower Hutt* Lower Hutt man killed with a headbutt over a supermarket parking space The judge said the victim did nothing to provoke the attack. He parked in a car park marked for parents, but he was within his rights to do that when the disability car parks were being used. Tanirau Whaanga was able to find another space within seconds. In their impact statements, which prosecutor Grant Burston read to the court, the victim's mother and wife spoke of their devastating loss. The victim's wife said after 34 years of marriage she could not bear to move his toothbrush that still sat in the bathroom, his slippers by the bed, and his clothes hanging in the wardrobe. A police car blocked the entrance to the Countdown supermarket car park at Queensgate shopping centre. She had not slept a full night since his death, and was trying to come to terms with the way he died in a senseless attack. The couple had two adult children. The victim had taken the day off work to help his invalid mother to several appointments. That day had begun full of fun and laughter, his mother's statement to the court said.He was her best friend. She was horrified to see him lying on the ground at the car park and, because of her disability, she was not able to get to him. Tanirau Whaanga read his own letter to the victim's family apologising, saying he was ashamed and dishonoured. He hoped they could forgive him but would understand if they could not. "I am truly sorry from the bottom of my heart, and God bless." Tanirau Whaanga found a parking space within seconds but his rage did not diminish, the judge said. Nicholls said there had been a chilling incident in a probation service car park in March 2019 when Tanirau Whaanga had left his appointment, but came back enraged and said someone had blocked his car and he was going to "smash" them if they did not move. A doctor Tanirau Whaanga confided his thoughts of anger and violence to tried to get mental health help for him in August. The urgent request came to nothing perhaps in part because Tanirau Whaanga did not answer a phone call. Probation "dithered" when Tanirau Whaanga did not fit criteria for courses, Nicholls said. Tanirau Whaanga was bulled at school, until he started fighting back aged 13, and was expelled from school aged 14. He learnt nothing and developed post-traumatic stress disorder. The section of the car park where the assault happened was cordoned off afterwards. (File photo) It created a monster and a timebomb, Nicholls said. He called for an inquiry into the way the education system, probation service, mental health services and justice responded, Nicholls said. The judge said she did not think any failures took away from the seriousness of Tanirau Whaanga's actions. At the Countdown car park on Knights Rd, the parents' parking spaces were a courtesy with no by-law to prevent others parking there. But Tanirau Whaanga, who had his partner and their one-year-old child in the car, took exception. Security camera footage captured the exchange with the victim pointing to the disability parks and his own car where his mother still sat. No by-law prevented the general public using the parks marked for parents' use. (File photo) Tanirau Whaanga headbutted the victim, who was knocked out and fell backwards, unchecked, to the ground. Even with an off duty emergency department doctor to give first-aid the victim could not be saved and died in hospital the next day. Outside court Nicholls said Tanirau Whaanga's family wanted to pass on condolences to the victims family, who they thought of daily. He said the importance of the case went far beyond the individual circumstances. An independent review was needed into the various failings that led to Tanirau Whaanga fatally lashing out, he said. This ranged from the seemingly unchecked bullying through school, to his eventual exclusion for bringing a knife in and threatening a teacher. The failings of the mental health and justice systems also needed to be examined, he said. The family of the victim did not want to comment after the hearing..

¡Peor! La MLB anunció que no harán pruebas diarias de Coronavirus ? - El Fildeo
Según reportes, la MLB no está planeando hacer pruebas diarias de coronavirus si hay una temporada de 60 juegos o menos en las Grandes Ligas.
Lamentablemente la MLB no está planeando hacer pruebas diarias de coronavirus si hay una temporada de 60 juegos o menos en las Grandes Ligas. Según the Score, la Major League Baseball (MLB) confirmó que al igual que otras organizaciones deportivas no están pensando hacer pruebas de coronavirus diariamente en caso de que lleguen a un acuerdo donde la temporada sea menor de 60 partidos. JULIO URÍAS ACLARÓ SI VA O NO AL CLÁSICO MUNDIAL A REPRESENTAR MÉXICO Como de costumbre, en una temporada de Grandes Ligas se juegan 162 partidos, pero debido a las circunstancias y el tiempo perdido la máxima cantidad de partidos que podemos ver seria de 50 a 100 partidos, pero ahora con la nueva noticia de la MLB, las cosas se pueden complicar aún más. Aquí el reporte: MLB also doesn’t reportedly plan to conduct daily testing if a shortened season does get underway. https://t.co/iVlf7b9f5Bpic.twitter.com/YhubZP7Rv8 theScore (@theScore) June 7, 2020 Se suponía que en todo caso la MLB se iba a mantener haciendo pruebas todos los días a cada jugador, con el fin de que sus jugadores permanezcan fuera de peligro y que no tengan miedo a la hora de jugar. LIGA COREANA TRAE A NICKELODEON PARA QUE SEAN SU FANATICADA Tras esta nueva decisión, es menos probable que el sindicato de jugadores acepte una temporada de 50 a 60 juegos, ya que sus jugadores estaban más tranquilos al saber que todos los días iban a ser examinados, pero todo giro al revés y todo apunta a más problemas.
