@davekonopka I fell for it too, but in the back of my mind I was like "Vice has been doing a bunch of B.S. lately, am I getting baited?"
Seeking to protect their taxpayer-funded cash cow, Cop City, Atlanta police have arrested three legal support organizers, charging them with "money laundering" and "charity fraud."
This marks a new low for Atlanta police and prosecutors in their descent into totalitarian tactics. Since December, they have pressed trumped-up terrorism charges against practically every defendant they have arrested. Now, in order to ensure that defendants in the movement to protect the forest cannot get proper legal support, they are attacking those who organize legal defense and raise bail.
Police and prosecutors pressing trumped-up charges against defendants is nothing new. Hundreds of people arrested at random at Trump's inauguration were charged with eight identical felonies, including two that were not even on the books as a legitimate charge. Ultimately, all of those who went to trial were declared innocent, prosecutors were forced to drop the charges against over a hundred defendants, and a judge threw out the rest. But it might have ended differently if those who coordinated legal support for those arrestees had themselves been subject to trumped-up charges.
Now, Atlanta police want arrestees to be defenseless in the face of their blatant miscarriage of justice.

The “automatically remove books from the school library when a parent objects” movement in one quote:
@acm_redfox it's frustrating because that section of 11th is a couple of blocks total. It's actually good! But it's maybe 10% of everyone's route
@acm_redfox I am hopeful. The part of Washington from 11th Street to 7th is actually usable, and I hope market is set up that way. Parking protected, bollards, the works. The problem is every other part of the bike "infrastructure" on Washington is just some paint and "good luck you're on your own"
@xgerman just mint the stupid platinum coin
Tried riding the Washington Ave bike lane back home tonight. What a disaster. I'll keep using Christian street instead. The amount of road debris in the bike lane, the cars racing past, it's just a disaster. What's worse, is they'll take this failure to prove that they shouldn't do any bike lanes ever again.
@pacanukeha @Bellingcat @mmasnick hate it when the CIA and Billionaires fight
@alexhillman most business owners are right wing maniacs
@bmc there is something to be said about blocking IP ranges from parts of the world that realistically you would not ever access from
I'm rooting for Helen Gym just because it triggers all the CHUDs on /r/Philadelphia
Interesting to see the rise of ChatGPT-enabled Github spam.
The screenshots below are from one account, but if you search a bit it's very easy to find other examples.
Github doesn't appear to be on top of this at all, e.g., the account mentioned in https://github.com/swarna1101/VeChain-Thor/issues/1 has been spamming repos since last year and hasn't been banned (I reported a bad account that was generating abusive spam once and got some autoresponse and then nothing happened and haven't bothered reporting since then).
@SpamapS it's possible to have lots of players but I don't do much multiplayer
@davekonopka wild story. I run my controller locally anyway
@davekonopka i'm still using Ubiquiti, what happened to make folks change?
@inkypitchbot now _this_ is a gem. Pigs sighted with wings outside.
