why wouldn't they at least wait until after the trial? isn't this a tacit admission assuming guilt?

Think of any somewhat high profile case where a black man (always a criminal thug) was shot by the police. Every single one has a multi-million dollar payday attached. It just isn’t reported widely. Check for yourself.

    How will the cop get a fair trial with the city admitting guilt? This should have not been dealt with until after the trail was over.
    The city wants to write the smallest check possible. The negotiation has likely been going on for the last nine months. If the city gets a conviction, then tries to settle, its gonna be a 50 million check.

    I understand that city is corrupt, I guess I'm just thinking out loud.

    Just don't recall this ever happening before?

    The money is from the working people that pay taxes. The city is going to burn no matter what the verdict is.
    That's the democratic process and after it burns to the ground and they decide to revitalize the area of course after the local political leaders have already purchased the depressed properties for pennies on the dollar in the fire sale.

    When I was in a bad motorcycle accident, I had to provide proof of my annual income, and the value of my lost retirement to get them to pay a portion of it's value. They wanted 6 years of tax returns, as well as my check stubs to verify my income.

    Rodney King got a similar deal from LA 3.8 million, he was later broke, and back to selling drugs on the street. Breonna Taylor's family received 12 million as well.

    It's literally appeasement. Reagan and Churchill are experts on this; I see we mostly haven't figured it out.

    Appeasement by a bunch of faggots who won't have to pay a dime for it and are such a bunch of spineless cocksuckers that they paid this out in hopes that people won't riot and burn the city down. Which they will anyways, because there is a growing demographic that literally waits for something to happen with the sole goal of adding to it and burning down/destroying/stealing shit.

    Plus they felt 'obligated' due to shame racism to pay something large out for someone who is otherwise a crackhead felon.

    Churchill gave the Zionists the imaginary land of Israel.
    What could possibly go wrong?
    I love how people claim land and influence from fairytales.
    Not to mention the other crowd, that slaughter people over cartoons.
    Yup, I'm going to have to shoot stuff today.

    Im glad Im not the only one that sees that about Israel. To many believe that its their "Promised Land" ...bullshit, its their stolen land. As Hitler so aptly put it, "If youre going to tell a lie tell a big one, its harder to pin down." Truth be told the Rothchild's pressured the Brits to give it to the because they controlled the finances of Great Brittan, not to mention the rest of Europe. The then King of Saudi Arabia, King Saud, had a long standing agreement with Roosevelt to not let that happen, then Roosevelt died and Truman let it happen. And here we are today.

    With morons who slaughter people over cartoons.

    The city is trying to buy off BLM. They hope the fat payoff will make it less likely that there will be rioting when Derek Chauvin walks free. It won't work...

    It's a pretty widely accepted fact based on solid historical details that Israel did exist back in Roman times.

    So you can blame the Italians for the whole mess that is the current B.S. since they started it like 2000 years ago
    You can also blame Hitler because his Genocide of the Jews made sure the Jews wanted to have a country to call their own in a big way.

    I never denied that there was a historical Israel. After Solomon's lavish building projects divided the nation and essentially broke the treasury they abandoned it. After that I dont see that they had any claim to it.

    Likewise, I cant blame the Jews for wanting a land of their own but how they got it is another story entirely, even though they were told by their own God that they would not have an (earthly) kingdom until the return of the Messiah and even then it would be a 'Spiritual Kingdom' New Zion.

    This has all been hashed around her ad infinitum and I really dont care to hash it any further. You have your view and Im unlikely to change it. But Grumpy has the right take.

    Your missing the better part of a thousand years in there...
    Solomon was back in the days of the Assyrian empire.
    The Romans some 1000 years later, were the ones who eventually busted up Israel, slaughtered tons and enslaved and transported away the rest, circa some 2000 years ago.

    As to how they got their land, it's pretty much the same story as America.
    The first time some like 3500 years ago, they showed up, killed all the natives and had a country.

    Then after WWII well, they wanted their ancient bit of dirt again and the folks that had been there for a very long time weren't totally happy about it and wanted to get rid of all the Jews, so once again there was the whole "there can be only one" and several major wars and a lot of slaughter later and things are still not totally settled yet.

    In all fairness, I'm a bit of a hardline Zionist
    (Which puts me at odds with the Ultra Orthodox, but I don't care, they don't like dogs so... Zionists like dogs so...)

    But discussion is good.(y)

    Youre basically correct on your timeline. But Solomon weakened the nation so badly they never recovered, thus the final diaspora, then later the Romans.

    And the first time they didnt just kill all the natives, they killed every living thing. The story is chilling. Absolute Holocaust...karma?

    Can you blame the folks who were there for not being so happy about having their homes taken? My family has been in Virginia since 1640, worked like redneck 'baca' farmersup until the latest generation, for what little we have. I dont think any of us would be too happy if, say the Chicoms (or libtards) decided to give it to someone else. There would likely be a lot of bloodletting...hmmmm sounds familiar.

    Im not anti Israel, I just choose to see things realistically. They stole the land, aside from any European justifications, and there isnt going to be any peace there, certainly not as long as they continue to abuse the 'Palestinian's' or whatever you choose to call them.

    Be well.
