Tina Fontaine, 15, was reported missing on Aug. 9. Her body was found in the Red River near the Alexander Docks at about 1:30 p.m., more than a week after she was reported missing. Fontaine, of Sagkeeng First Nation, had only been in Winnipeg for a month before her disappearance. “She’s a petite little thing — just turned 15, barely in the city for a little over a month,” O’Donovan said. “And she’s definitely been exploited and taken advantage of and murdered.” 
Fontaine was in the care of a Child and Family Services agency when she went missing, according to police. She had run away from her foster home before, including once in July of this year. Police said she was found wrapped in a bag, in “a condition she couldn’t have put herself in.”
“She’s a child. This is a child that has been murdered … Society should be horrified,” O’Donovan said. “That’s why we’re asking for people to come forward. And that’s why we’re asking for people to help us and to come forward with anything they know about this child.” Anyone with information can contact police at 204-986-6508 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-8477.

  4. The phrase “rubber bullets” is often used to describe what are more accurately termed “rubber-coated metal bullets”, heavy steel projectiles with a minimal coating of 1mm or 2mm of rubber, that are regularly used to lethal effect alongside — not instead of — live ammunition.

    Rubber-coated metal bullets are fired from metal tubes placed on the end of high-velocity rifles such as the M-16s commonly used by Israeli troops. Tubes contain around 8 rubber-coated, cylindrical, steel projectiles, which are powered by blank rounds fired from the gun’s magazine.

    [….]

    Writing in the medical journal, The Lancet, [doctors] said firing the bullets at civilians made it “impossible to avoid severe injuries to vulnerable body regions such as the head, neck and upper torso, leading to substantial mortality, morbidity and disability.”

    They added: “We reported a substantial number of severe injuries and fatalities inflicted by use of rubber bullets when vulnerable upper-body regions such as the head, neck and upper torso were struck.

    “This type of ammunition should therefore not be considered a safe method of crowd control.”

The above is Travis Morales. If you don’t know who he is, he’s one of these privileged jokers who goes around talking about “revolution”. He and many other jokers like him traveled to Ferguson and are using this opportunity to incite further mayhem. He went to Ferguson for the “revolution” and “rebellion”. It’s not their communities being targeted so they can leave when it gets too hot. They can ignite a match and walk away. They will promote violence and leave.
Like I mentioned here, avoid these people Black folks. Avoid them at all costs. They aren’t your friends. They aren’t your allies. These people have their own agendas and fighting anti-Blackness isn’t it. They’re dangerous.

Iraq: US Hits 90 Targets in 48 hrs Around Mosul Dam
//Air Strikes = Fire Superiority 
President Obama hailed the recapture of Mosul dam today as a “major step forward” as a barrage of US airstrikes helped Kurdish and Iraqi forces score the biggest victory of its counteroffensive against the Islamic State militants. Obama also urged the badly fractured and largely dysfunctional Iraqi government to move quickly to forge a united front and give hope to Sunni tribes who’ve been marginalized. Obama noted last week’s decision by Nouri al-Maliki to step down as Iraq’s prime minister, a move that raised hopes a new government could roll back Iraq’s powerful Sunni insurgency and prevent the country from splitting apart. “They’ve got to get this done because the wolf’s at the door,” the president said.
A Pentagon spokesman, Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby, said the US had conducted 35 airstrikes in the area of the Mosul dam since Saturday: “In all, we destroyed over 90 targets including a range of vehicles, equipment, and fighting positions,” he said. “Iraqi forces have cleared the dam and are working to further expand their area of control.” US Central Command said American fighters, bombers, and drone aircraft conducted 15 strikes today around the dam, hitting Islamic State fighting positions as well as an anti-aircraft artillery gun and other weaponry of the group that has captured wide swaths northern and western Iraq this summer.

Hedy Epstein, a 90-year-old Holocaust survivor was arrested on Monday during unrest in Ferguson Epstein, who aided Allied forces in the Nuremberg trials, was placed under arrest “for failing to disperse.” 8 others were also arrested.
"I’ve been doing this since I was a teenager. I didn’t think I would have to do it when I was ninety," Epstein told The Nation during her arrest. “We need to stand up today so that people won’t have to do this when they’re ninety.” Epstein is currently an activist and a vocal supporter of the Free Gaza Movement.
