    San Quentin or GITMO would be a suitable place to place tRump after he loses the upcoming Election.

    • When the world finds out the truth, they are literally going to lose their minds. People loves lies the world tell them and refuse any and all truth from shattering their false sense of security. Reminding the world daily and perpetuating new fears is the what continues to hold those that have been taken captive by evil. Wake up people! The coronavirus is not real. COVID 19 is a psychological operation: MK Ultra, Cointelpro… Nothing new. For many, it will take the gilloutines coming out before they become willing to listen and accept the truth. Wake up! Phase 2 of the New World Order is underway!

      @Colin Cleveland Ad hominems from an Adam Curtis fan makes me sad☹, it’s hard to describe Steve’s work I subbed him a few years ago because of a poem I liked “A letter to nowhere” and he let me mix and post it. Forgot about it then suddenly he posts (Difference between Fact, Truth and Lies) so I watch it and apparently, he’s a Biologist. It’s a set of vids (he’s called it a documentary slight Hyperbole) that mix the biology and psychology of how we think and how that’s influenced by your environment with the COVID BLM response as backdrp it opened my eyes. Part 1 Perspective introduced me to Hypernormalisation and I’ve just watched All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace there brilliant geuss were both Adam curtis fans.

    If you look at the dip in the curve that happened, you can see where Trump made his biggest mistake. He didn’t learn from his first failure with this, and he didn’t prepare for the next.

    • George Holloway | July 8, 2020 at 4:29 AM | Reply

      I agree, not everything is Trump’s fault. Other people can be dangerously ignorant and irresponsible too.

      It’ll be gone by April.

      I don’t stand by anything.
      Slow the testing down, please.

    • And he refuses to listen to experts! Smh

    • He makes a habit of completely ignoring history. And listening to his “gut.”

      But it did, because America chose someone who was a self-obsessed businessman rather than a responsible leader. Do not give America any sympathy, they wanted this, and now they got it. Give the Americans who wanted a better life sympathy, yes, but not America as a whole.

    🤔💭 idea: how about dipping trumP in bronze and mounting him on one of the vacated statue pedestals that exist now . . and put him in a museum as an example of ‘don’t let this happen to you’ 😔

  8. The truly dangerous felons are in Washington, not San Quentin.

      Lol these people think the white leftist care about the blacks in America. If they would vote Republican in a majority just one time they would find out just how much they care about them. Hint it ain’t fkn much.

    • @Ken Price When the truth comes out? The TRUTH is right in front of you, trolltard. Trump is controlled by Putin. PROVE ME WRONG or STFU and crawl back down your hole

  9. Now every sentence is a death sentence. Good thing we turned criminal reform into a business.

    • Colin Connelly | July 8, 2020 at 6:03 AM | Reply

      Unless you are Paul Manafort. Then it’s an early release.

    • Privatization of prisons is really working great, it’s a real success story, just like anything else that ever got privatised

  10. Transferring inmates – wtf? The exact opposite of isolation. One more thing I reject the ‘they are prisoners so who cares?’ argument. Every human being has done wrong. We have all lied, or stolen, or hurt others. Let the punishment fit the crime, and let he who is without sin throw the first stone.

    • Michelle Godoy | July 8, 2020 at 5:30 AM | Reply

      Amen to that!! There’s no reason a one year or five year sentence should mean you gotta sit in death row and basically wait your turn!! This mess is truly getting out of control! The minute those men were sentenced they were placed in the care of the state government! For everyone that gets sick and for every one that dies…i hope they get sued out the whazoo, because some of these jails couldn’t care less!!!

    • One problem with anyone being sent to prison is that when they are released, having served their time for whatever, they are treated worse than animals, as if they can never stop being imprisoned and reviled. Society persecutes them for making mistakes, until they die, and they are excoriated in death.

    • If we treated each other humanely to begin with, they might not have ended up in prison to begin with… But we’ve made everything a crime and send people to places that don’t rehabilitate but only further the problems….

    They are clearly doing this on purpose. Don’t forget the elderly have gone up 65% in prison the last decade and San Quentin has a lot of PoC. They are handing out capital punishment for POVERTY crimes!

  12. Whoever said “America is a Third World country with a Gucci belt” was spot on!!

    • Tanner Shortnacy | July 8, 2020 at 5:44 PM | Reply

      Hundreds shot over the 4th of july and none by police.

    • I’ve never heard that before but dang that’s definitely true under the trump admin smh.

      @Desi Gamer Pretty sure it wasn’t a joke, let’s try anouther way.A 3 dressed up as a 9

    • @Tanner Shortnacy so what, the police is the fabric of our society and in the US, it’s rotten to the core. people shoot people everywhere in the world, but not everywhere in the world police murder their co-citizens.

    • a Chinese knock off Gucci belt … with a made in America logo attached by prisoners in an americium jail…

  13. Under the trump regime we’re turning into a third world country when it comes to the virus. If we dont vote him out it will just keep getting worse.

  14. Chris Gascoigne | July 8, 2020 at 2:48 AM | Reply

    lolol, so basically they shipped the disease from one prison to another, and in turn probably infected guards, who went home and infected other people. Good job America, good job.

  15. The trump virus is raging. It was wuhans virus is january, butnow trump bought it.it cost us 4 trillion so far

    • Lilac Lizard | July 8, 2020 at 5:54 PM | Reply

      And if trump wants to keep calling it the wuhan virus, incorporate his name into the virus name with WuDON virus. Link trump to China – he hates it 🙂

    That’s what the great one is doing to America. Just letting the virus overwhelm for no reason.

  20. So, I thought Trump’s killing of 130,000+ people would change his heart and he’d magically become compassionate; but… then, I remembered what Trump and Jeffrey Epstein were into and realized — it’ll never happen.

    • Never, ever, ever. Just look what he put those innocent Central Park 5 through. That was one of the first times I heard of the orange cretin. It’s been ugly ever since.
