It did look like he was reading something on the floor. It wasn't something anyone really cares about. Except you. You researched it to find videos and actually reenacted it in your room. That's OCD. You are like a dog with a bone but with unimportant things. And you always seem to think YOU are the arbitor of truth and anyone else who disagrees is actually LYING. Not wrong, not disagreeing with you, but lying. It doesn't seem to even enter your head that YOU might be wrong.

    It constantly enters my head that I might be wrong. When I get something wrong on here I take time and ask myself why I got it wrong and how I could have caught that error. I hope others can be inspired to similarly learn to pump the brakes on stuff which is just too good to be true. It doesn't matter if it's a small thing--in fact those are the ones which are easier to blow it on.

    That's why I think I have a pretty good track record when it comes to claims I make.

      You're going to have to show some actual evidence if you are claiming that this event was *roundly* criticized *by Democrats* or *Democratic leaning independents*.

          I mean I don't think it was their intent to mimick Chauvin. It was just a thoughtless bit of pandering on their part.

            I'd bet that their role model is more likely Kaepernick rather than Chauvin

              But it's not so much an order to shoot, but just the fact the military being ordered to police US cities. That's not their job. They are trained to hunt and kill the enemy - not police citizens in an open democracy.

                • Recently released statement from the Park Police lays out a detailed timeline and reiterates that tear gas was NOT used:

                  As many of the protestors became more combative, continued to throw projectiles, grab officerís protective equipment, and even attempted to grab one officersí weapon, officers then employed the use of smoke canisters, stinger balls, and pepper balls. On June 1, USPP officers and other assisting law enforcement partners operating under the command of the USPP did not use tear gas or Skat Shells to close the area at Lafayette Park.

                  Full statement can be found at the link:

                        • Well well well...

                          The Washington Post, among other mainstream media organizations, created the false impression that President Donald Trump ordered Lafayette Square cleared with “tear gas” to remove “peaceful protesters” for a “photo-op” last June 1.

                          Those claims have been definitively debunked by an inspector general’s report from the Department of Interior, which confirmed the Trump administration’s story: that U.S. Park Police had already planned to enlarge the perimeter around the White House after violent attacks by rioters on law enforcement, and cleared the park using pepper balls, not tear gas.

                          The report also confirms that it was the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department, under the control of Democrat Mayor Muriel Bowser, who used tear gas at a different site nearby, after protesters had already been cleared from the park.

                            Even better, to go with the original OP. This version from the Huffpost, same as the OP.

                            Trump Photo Op Not The Reason Park Police Cleared Lafayette Square, Watchdog Says

                            Police violently cleared protesters from a park near the White House last June not so then-President Donald Trump could stage a photo op at a nearby church but to allow a contractor to install fencing, according to a report released Wednesday by the Interior Department’s inspector general.

                            The installation of fencing was “in response to destruction of Federal property and injury to officers that occurred on May 30 and May 31,” Interior Department Inspector General Mark Lee Greenblatt said in a statement.

                            Of course, it's great to look at the comments where the IG is dismissed as appointed by trump, it's a cover-up, etc. You know, trust the experts until the experts don't give you the answer you want, then obviously the experts are wrong.
