The CCP has banned almost every business of the style of Tiktok that western companies have tried to launch in their country. Almost every other business operating within their country has had to sell half of their chinese operations to a chinese company, and in some cases these chinese entities have gone rogue and taken all of the intellectual property and business for themselves. Companies have been banned for an employee on their own separate platforms to express the slightest, tiniest amount of support for democracy. I don't think they have much of a leg to stand on in this.

One should always carry around an explosive cylinder and a match. Great way to get invited back to the best parties.

Brickbat: It Had Wheels. That's Close Enough

Aurora, Colorado, police officers ordered at gunpoint a mother and her children out of the SUV the woman was driving, made them lie down on the pavement and handcuffed them after mistaking her vehicle for a motorcycle reported stolen in another state. Police Chief Vanessa Wilson blamed the error on a license plate scanner that hit on the vehicle's license plate number. Wilson did not explain why officers did not confirm the description of the vehicle before pulling it over and detaining the family. "We have been training our officers that when they contact a suspected stolen car, they should do what is called a high-risk stop. This involves drawing their weapons and ordering all occupants to exit the car and lie prone on the ground," she said. Wilson said she has apologized to the family and spoken to the division chief about better training for officers on detaining children.

Maybe they should double check the license plate scanner? I know from experience that they're not exactly accurate, they pulled me over because the license plate scanner said my car was a completely different model, then had to rerun the plates manually to find out that the scanner just screwed up.
