What an amazing #NBAPlayoffs series has it been. Crazy teams, crazy games & crazy results.

Right from round 1, teams have delivered their best & making every single game a memorable & competitive one.

To top, so many teams were being underdogs & rose up like anything - example, Memphis & Celtics were okish at start but flourished well towards the end.

Boston, were impressive in the east as they WASHED OUT the title favs #Brooklyn

+ they wiped off the 2021 champs, the Bucks & made their way onto the #NBAFinals like a real team, stacking some real tough cookies to crack.

Celtics were almost title favs, until the OG, dynastic GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS started to

1/ Ayer en #Brooklyn hubo otro tiroteo masivo: un hombre fue al metro y disparó a 10 personas. Los testigos, un grupo de migrantes, ayudaron a la policía con la identificación del tirador. Ahora mismo esos testigos se enfrentan a una posible deportación, por no tener papeles.
2/ En los comentarios al hilo de @Shine_McShine, @HelenaVillarRT nos recuerda que es una práctica habitual de la policía de EEUU la de perseguir a los testigos (si son pobres y migrantes), como también pasó con el tiroteo del WalMart en El Paso en 2019.

3/ En Hollywood estas dos historias serían una película llamada "Heróes por un día": grupos de refugiados que colaboran con la policía para identificar a unos asesinos. Serían héroes nacionales, les darían medallas y los llevarían a las escuelas como ejemplos del sueño americano

CCTV news: Five minutes of detailed coverage on the subway shootings in Brooklyn. It goes against internal guidelines of restraint and reticence about showing street violence and bloodshed. Graphic images taken from US social media are shown repeatedly.
#brooklyn ImageImageImageImage
The extensive use of phone video and viral social media posts contrasts starkly with Shanghai where big CCTV cameras prevail and citizen journalism is banned.
Suspect is ID'ed
CCTV also borrows footage from US TV since it has no expertise in covering breaking news in the field. ImageImageImageImage
CCTV doesn't like to deal with uncomfortable truths or even nuances, let alone negative aspects of China.
The subway bomber's videos suggest he was a big fan of Mao's killer instinct and ruthlessness, but you won't hear about that on CCTV news any time soon.

Breaking: NYPD named Frank James as a person of interest in the #Brooklyn mass shooting. I looked into his social media. Like the Waukesha suspect & the Louisville BLM activist who allegedly tried to assassinate a mayoral candidate, he appeared to be a fan of black nationalism.
"I think I will kill you last"

Frank James, the #Brooklyn mass shooting "person of interest," made disturbing posts recently suggesting he was going to kill people.

Immagini da #NewYork dopo la sparatoria nella metro di #Brooklyn. La scelta del Blog è quella di non mostrare per ora il video - già virale - che ritrae un uomo insaguinato sulla banchina in condizioni di salute poco chiare.…

La scritta NYPD sui giubbotti dei poliziotti, le strisce gialle per delimitare l'area, i vigili del fuoco, la polvere, le ambulanze. #NewYork, e la mente corre subito a quel maledetto giorno di settembre.

.@POTUS comes to #NYC & fails to mention one thing about keeping career criminals behind bars, or the fact that, under NY’s bail law, tens of thousands of criminals released were repeat offenders or were rearrested after release for another crime.
The vast majority of individuals arrested for an illegal firearm are released pre-trial. The person who shot a teen at Kings Plaza in #Brooklyn just the other day was arrested in November for having four illegal firearms, but was released to commit this shooting.
While @POTUS spoke a lot about gun violence, he did not address every other category of crime, including rape, robbery, car theft, or assault, that are currently skyrocketing in our city. In my district, a young man was recently stabbed to death.

Where were you @RepJeffries? Have not heard your voice in support of human rights and justice for #Palestinians. Your constituents in #Brooklyn and #Queens - including me - would like you to speak out.
Congresswoman @RashidaTlaib and @CoriBush have a clear moral compass and callin the ugly reality in Israel Palestine what it is - apartheid - and so not a democracy.
