01) Protests Erupt After Police Shoot Jacob Blake


“When will we see justice?

Protesters and police clashed again Monday night in Kenosha in the wake of an officer shooting a Black man, and authorities remained tight-lipped even as national attention focused on the city just north of the Wisconsin border.

Kenosha residents woke up Monday morning to burned-out cars, broken glass and damaged buildings following clashes Sunday with police that were touched off by the shooting of 29-year-old Jacob Blake. Video appeared to show an officer firing several shots as Blake was facing away from the cop. Blake was hospitalized in serious condition.

01) Trump Invites ‘Ken and Karen’ To Speak At RNC


“The McCloskeys dubbed ‘Ken and Karen’, who pointed guns at peaceful St. Louis protesters, speak at the RNC.

Mark and Patricia McCloskey get to speak at the Republican National Convention on Monday because they waved guns at Black Lives Matter protesters.

The St. Louis couple rose to national notoriety in late June when they were captured in viral videos and photos outside their mansion in a gated community pointing a rifle and handgun at peaceful protesters. Since then, they have turned into a Rorschach test for where people stand on the Black Lives Matter movement and gun rights in America.
