I'd maybe ass the declaration of the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, I think that could be worth an entry.

Allison, I'm still unsure why you find this one entry disagreeable when I've titled it with just the same generalisation as anything else. The police fire gas and rubber bullets into the crowd to disperse them for a photo op. Here you can read a first hand account from the priest (of that church he used as a prop) who was there when it happened: https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/episcopal-priest-describes-being-gassed-and-overrun-by-police-at-lafayette-square-church/2020/06/02/c5dbb282-a4ed-11ea-bb20-ebf0921f3bbd_story.html

Yes you are correct it is "my spin" but everything else in your timeline is factual catastrophes (floods, earthquakes, dam breaks, airplane crashes) and non-disputable generalizations as in the "protestors and police clash". There is nothing in these events that anyone would likely dispute. This is not the case with the arguable description of the Trump event (tear gas photo op) This appears as a "direct bias" against him, which I won't presume that you are. I implore you to also look at some other invents with a different angle of facts. https://rmx.news/article/article/video-retired-st-louis-police-captain-david-dorn-killed-on-facebook-live-while-protecting-friend-s-pawn-shop-from-looters-during-george-floyd-protests - There are many more like this - all buried by the agenda of the media. Blessings!

Allison, which "Trump event" are you referring to, specifically? Even your description is technically "your spin". I've been trying to just use headlines and describe the events as matter-of-fact as possibly
7 months ago
Allison West
The Trump event is YOUR spin on what happened and should not have been on this otherwise informative and important timeline. The accurate event that should be on your timeline is "hateful murder spawns protests and equally hateful and senseless rioting producing thousands of injuries including murder."
