Feds Charge Illinois Man For Rioting and looting In Minnesota

An Illinois man who traveled to Minnesota for some rioting and looting--some of which he broadcast on Facebook Live- - has been charged in a federal criminal complaint for his involvement in the Minneapolis mayhem. Matthew Lee Rupert, 28, is facing felony counts for possession of explosive devices and traveling across state lines to engage in the violent activities that have engulfed the Minnesota city in the wake of George Floyd’s death in police custody. In a May 28 Facebook post, Rupert announced an impending trip from his home in Galesburg, a city 45 miles from Peoria, to Minnesota. “I 'm going to Minneapolis tomorrow who coming only goons I 'm renting hotel rooms,” wrote Rupert, according to an affidavit sworn by FBI Agent F.M. Stephens. In subsequent Facebook videos--which were posted after Rupert arrived in Minneapolis--he “passes out explosives he indicates he possessed, encourages others to throw his explosives at law enforcement officers, actively damages property, appears to light a building on fire, and loots businesses in Minneapolis,” Stephens charged. The affidavit states that Rupert, after noting the presence of SWAT trucks, declared, “I 've got some bombs if some of you all want to throw them back…bomb them back.” Later Friday night, Rupert allegedly used a pry tool to break into a boarded-up liquor store, looted an Office Depot, and reported setting a fire at a Sprint store. On Sunday, Rupert (seen above and at right) had relocated to Chicago, where he was heard on video “saying things to the effect of ‘let 's start a riot ' and ‘I 'm going to start doing some damage.” In one Facebook post, Rupert declared that, “we can loot until 2:30.” Video on his Facebook page shows Rupert entering a looted downtown Chicago business and announcing that he had spotted a cash register inside. He is then seen going into a nearby convenience store that had been broken into and stealing “what appear to be tobacco products.” Rupert and several associates were arrested around 2:20 AM yesterday by Chicago cops for violating the city 's emergency curfew order. A search of Rupert 's car yielded “several destructive devices,” a hammer, and a heavy-duty flashlight. Rupert 's girlfriend told police that his crew had traveled to Minneapolis “in order to ‘riot, '” according to Agent Stephens. One video on Rupert 's Facebook page--which is not referenced in the FBI affidavit--shows Rupert 's car being stopped early Saturday morning for speeding. With a patrol car 's lights flashing, Rupert and his friends--one of whom is on parole and not supposed to be outside Illinois-- voice concerns that the officer will seek to search their vehicle, which contains assorted problematic items, including marijuana dabs (the possession of which amounted to a felony, Rupert noted). But when the patrolman returned to the vehicle, he did not ask to search the car and only cited Rupert for diving 90 in a 65 mph zone. As he drove away, Rupert told those watching him on Facebook Live, “We got lucky as fuck, bro! Real shit.” Another man in the car can be heard saying that when the cop shined a flashlight on him, “I know he had to see the jewelry,” an apparent reference to items stolen in Minneapolis.
DeaWebby's Tech Support Pits From: Rock Re: Anti Malware Dear Webby, Im curious, what would you recommend for anti virus fire wall protection? MacAfee, Norton or some new fangled thing? Thanks for all you do, Rock Dear Rock The best program by far for the last dozen years is I used to have big ads for it on the Humor Letter, but either most people got it by now, either via my link, or from elsewhere. So I dumped most of those ads. The link still works. It is amazing how many people are worried, that I would make $2.49 if they get it via my ads. Well, the link still works. It is entirely up to you whether you choose to get the program. Malwarebytes eliminates a whole stack of different programs. How I initially got it is rather funny. I had been using McAfee since the mid 80s. Then I got W7 PRO on a brand new machine. Well, McAfee did not work on it. So I chatted McAfee support. The McAfee's Taliban could not get it to work either. After a few hopurs of wasting time I got rather hot under my collar and threatened them dire consequences and bloody mayhem. So they told me about Malwarebytes. I think I was one of the first to sign up with Malwarebytes and actually pay. For a brief time they offered a lifetime subscription. I paid quickly before they changed their mind. A month ago I found out that was for just one machine. Awww. Well, I had received it for two machines for about a dozen years, so I didn't raise a fuss and paid for the second machine. It is well worth it. Have FUN! DearWebby

"How are we faring?" his king asks.

"Sire," replies the knight, "I have been robbing and

"What?!" shrieks the king. "I don't have any enemies to

The government lab where I work recently began a series of
secret animal experiments.

Our goal is to enhance animal intelligence through the use
of computers.  We're hoping to use them as cheap and
expendable soldiers.

We started with four rather exceptional German shepherds.

First we provided for a direct computer link between the
brains of each of the four animals.

Then we provided for a direct link between myself and each
of the four.

One interesting phenomenon has already occurred in the
lab. Every time I enter the room, all five of us start
barking at the same time.
