the man was behaving erratically it happened in the state of pennsylvania where investigations now underway are fresh protests after the disturbing video of the arrest spread rapidly online. maybe look we don't matter broke. the law he's a magazine he's neg we both get off tonight. tempers flared elsewhere over the weekend too as black lives matter protesters confronted a march in support of the new york police department who call themselves the blue lives matter movement officers used tasers and made several arrests. was who. was you was .
was. now the mayor had banned large scale public events in new york for the next 3 months citing the high risk of spreading coven only then to allow black lives matter rallies to take place and looks at the questions being asked about the exception being made. as new york city works to slow the spread of coded 19 in the hopes of soon fully reopening mayor bill de blasio has banned all large public gatherings except for black lives matter protests we understand at this moment of history people are talking about the need for historic changes this is a historic moment of change we have to respect that big crowds at any protest you would think would be a perfect recipe for spreading kovi of 19 however mainstream media would have you believe otherwise they say the protests are not causing the spread of the coronavirus whereas trump rallies they seem to indicate do massive protests in new
york city and around the country some doctors warn the spike in coronavirus cases could follow but that didn't really happen new study suggests that recent black lives matter protesters have not led or the protests themselves have not led to a spike in new cases how the fishes warned against their rally but president trump said we have to move on this is all a little bit odd it's unclear why the virus would soon have a political bias favoring some big gatherings over others mayor de blasio is efforts to sit on both sides of the fence accommodating those afraid of coded 19 by implementing harsh measures on the one hand while letting black lives matter do their thing on the other hand doesn't seem to be working out very well for him his critics argue that the black community which has been disproportionately hit by coded 19 should be discouraged not encouraged to protest they even point to the 1st
amendment. let me get this right now the blasio affairs parades tennis matches bunfight public safety may a statistically the group disproportionately affected by the virus is excepted and allowed to congregate and protest you advocate exposing them to increased risk hypocrite how does that make any sense at all for b.l.m. products but if they can proceed so can other bands viruses don't care about social conflicts bill seen the protests are ok what are the gatherings are prohibited it sounds like censorship to me these type of speech are assemblies ok but that's kind of isn't let's remember that new york city's mayor bill de blasio presents himself as a big supporter of black lives matter even painted the words black lives matter on the street in front trump tower that was a symbolic move that not all locals were happy with this mayor is promoting defeat in a trade and he did this because he hates surprise when he did it out of spite but we have a mayor who doesn't care about you me the african-american community he lets them
rot on the street he's done nothing to help and i think it's a joke it's beautiful but he's trying to make both sides of everything it won't pass no reforms or nothing this is like and it's the statue oh man it's a joke it doesn't help because it doesn't help that. mayor bill de blasio seems to be in a pretty rough spot his attempt to sit in 2 chairs has got a lot of other people standing up in anger he will mock than archie new york. clear evidence that corona virus is still very much a threat in the united states there's been another record a surge in infections with 66500 registered in a single day florida alone saw over 15000 new cases on sunday making it the biggest single day increase for a single state since the start of the pandemic in fact if florida were a country and its own right it would rank 4th worst in the world right now and spite those numbers the disney theme park in orlando is welcoming back in business
. it's possible for that are also being ordered to help it backslide safe taking the lead in one day record infection rates that was previously set in new york in april the russian emergency doctor working there told us about the unprecedented scale a big crisis that has what they have been facing. for you mike i know that many of my colleagues including those who were here during the 911 attacks and doing the h one n one epidemic were surprised by the situation with the coronavirus it was unprecedented even for them honestly in february i thought that it would be an asian thing that would never reach us or that if it did reach us there would be sporadic outbreaks but that it wouldn't really be our problem as well towards the end of february started to understand that something bad was happening there wasn't any testing but more and more cases were appearing clearly in a city like new york situation wasn't going to end well in terms of mass transmission as we didn't have preventive measures in place in new york we had
about a 1000 intensive care beds per 8000000 people and when in march the number of seriously ill patients began increasing rapidly we realized we wouldn't have enough beds there were also only enough ventilators in the hospital to meet our needs for 2 weeks and if we hadn't received help and even before we reached the peak we wouldn't have been able to cope with the situation we started the pandemic with a shortage of tests at that point about 70 percent of tests in new york were coming back positive only people who almost certainly had the virus were being tested by the show and i'm going to. hear more that you take this pretty much so much strain on the healthcare system and a large number of registered covert 1000 cases and deaths all the statistics making it look worse than it is or has the country really been hit particularly hard. as i did her. support and i've been discussing this with friends and colleagues and no
one can really understand it or health care. them is not capable of dealing with big shocks the virus itself according to all indications has a case fatality rate of about one percent so it shouldn't be a big deal one person out of $100.00 will die and a few more out of $100.00 will be badly ill so how can such a rich medically advanced country like the united states be brought to its knees by such a disease we still don't quite understand what to do next we are stuck in an endless quarantine and we are afraid to lift it and rightly so because were aware that our health care system which is able to cure some unimaginable illnesses is not capable of dealing with this epidemic. colons and comment leader has narrowly secured another term after the 2nd round of a tight run presidential race. i.

spokesperson to boost the given names of course the german government has no influence on the presidential election of our polish neighbors nor does it have any influence on the work of reporters here in germany as well as german reporters working abroad as they do their job under press freedom with things in tight income that it may well be looking for someone to blame ahead of time for all of our r.t. . more than 60 years of mystery surrounding the deaths of 9 hikers and russia's you're all mountains may finally have been solved the so-called debt left past incident in 1959 led to theories ranging from blaming us photos to the military and the hawkins has more on how the men's deaths might now finally be explained. mine bodies or if it came juries over 70 theories and 60 years on no certain answers or closure until now the chilling mystery of what happened in the death of past has fascinated the world for decades inspiring books films and
