Apparently a lot of people just want to see the world burn.
It isn't as simple as a post-convention bounce, FiveThirtyEight polling guru Nate Silver explains

Try the original too. :)

There are many reasons why Ingress is the superior Niantic offering, despite its more cultish appeal.

Police using Lures.
A man with a warrant for his arrest was taken into custody after showing up at a Detroit-area police station while playing the Pokemon Go game.

1) it's "por" not "para" in this case.
2) those don't look like "Latinos."

If you're going to fake support, do it right.

Death Eaters come out of the shadows after their dark Lord calls for them at the convention.
"We must stop the massive immigration and ethnic cleansing of people whose forefathers created America," Duke said in a video posted to his website.

52 times??? Ask yourself, how many times have you been pulled over for such things? How many times have you had a gun pointed at you?

"When Philando Castile saw the flashing lights in his rearview mirror the night he got shot, it wasn’t unusual. He had been pulled over at least 52 times in recent years in and around the Twin Cities and given citations for minor offenses including speeding, driving without a muffler and not wearing a seat belt. He was assessed at least $6,588 in fines and fees, although more than half of the total 86 violations were dismissed, court records show."

I love how the inconvenience of being arrested for committing a crime has been re-framed into the criminal being a victim and how cops are called bad for enforcing the law and arresting criminals.

As if those poor innocent criminals just cannot catch a break because those mean ol' cops won't leave them alone...

This may come as a surprise to you, but cops... arrest criminals.

The super secret method I use to avoid nearly all negative interactions with cops is: Don't be a criminal, and if I still have to deal with a cop- for example a traffic stop- I deploy my second patented, limited-edition method of: Don't be an asshole to the cop.
This method has worked well for me thus far.

Feel free to ignore that advice and do your own thing, but do not expect sympathy when reality does not conform to your expectations.
