UPDATE: When this was posted at 10:32 a.m. yesterday there was N-O-T-H-I-N-G on #bluelivesmatter, nothing at all, not on twitter, not on facebook.  Nothing reporting that the shooting that had happened, and nothing on the capture of Scott Michael Greene.  N-O-T-H-I-N-G!  It was “noticed” over and over on the twitterverse.  What was there elsewhere were statements blaming BLM and Muslims for the assassinations.  And now there are posts on #bluelivesmatter on facebook ($50 says a couple are backdated) And many commenters are blaming Obama!  How does that happen?  In what world does that make any sense?


UPDATE: Judge ordered Des Moines shooting suspect to move out of mom’s home

UPDATE: Police shooter a ‘monster,’ Des Moines police chief says



#bluelivesmatter is silent…

Two police officers were shot in Iowa early this a.m., and immediately, the wingnut twitter universe started in with declarations that this was a #blacklivesmatters and/or Islamic terrorist act.  NOT!  Thankfully the Des Moines police almost as quickly had named Scott Michael Greene as a suspect, and he was arrested quickly, without incident, by a DNR officer.

Another white male domestic terrorist.  This is Scott Michael Greene at the Urbandale High School stadium, waving around a Confederate flag during the National Anthem, despite Urbandale HS prohibitions of Confederate flags.  This is the sort of thing that Trump and his campaign have encouraged, with actions, statements at campaign rallies, and endorsements by KKK, David Duke, and others, they’ve given free rein, free reign, to hate.  Folks, NO, it’s not OK.


Here’s his house at 3422 70th St., Urbandale, IA (confirmed on Google maps, where it looks like he’s out mowing his lawn!):


Scott Michael Green was a time bomb.  He’s a known problem.  Seems Greene was arrested in 2001 on charges of domestic assault, assault causing bodily injury and fourth-degree criminal mischief and charged with drunken driving in 2010 (needs confirmation).  He was charged with first-degree harassment in 2014.  Details on Greene’s 2014 arrests here:

Scott Michael Green was convicted in combative 2014 encounters

In that incident, Greene was accused of approaching a man in the parking lot and shined a flashlight in his eyes. Greene, who lived in the apartments, called the man the N-word and told the man “I will kill you, (expletive) kill you,” according to the complaint. Greene pleaded guilty to a lesser harassment charge on June 30, 2014, and was sentenced to one year of probation.

In a discharge report filed in June 2015 a probation officer wrote that Greene had received a mental health evaluation and “reports to have complied with the medication recommendations.”

Here’s Greene’s own video after he was taken out of the stadium in Urbandale, which is located at the intersection where one of the officers was shot:

Good to know the Des Moines and Urbandale police had him on their radar, but unfortunate it took Greene’s killing of two police officers to recognize how dangerous this guy was.

This is an example of what happens when hate is let loose.  I hope that this election’s fear-mongering and hateful furor isn’t a Pandora’s box, but my fear is that this is now accepted as OK.  NO, HATE IS NOT OK.  Choose love!
