At least 15,000 people have joined a general strike and flooded the streets in protest of the extreme violence from police during the voting for the referendum on Catalonian independence.
This is #Barcelona right now

The massive crowd gathered in the streets outside the Barcelona headquarters of Spain’s national police force, who brutalized the young and elderly alike on Sunday during the voting process. Masked officers were also caught on video as they ripped ballot boxes from the polling places.

Tuesday’s protesters were chanting “independence,” “the streets will always be ours,” and that the national police are an occupying force. Catalonia’s regional president, Carles Puigdemont has said that 90% of the Catalan people voted for independence, announcing on Sunday that they had “won the right to an independent state.”

On the eve of the strike, New York-based journalist Tim Pool, who is on the ground in Spain, told Big League Politics that the mood was calm, but serious.
“Everyone here is really calm. You can go about your business as though nothing is happening. But on Tuesday there’s going to be a general strike so you know that people are serious but reserved,” Pool said. “There are people who are closing their businesses out of fear. They know that if they stay open they could be attacked by protesters.”
Pool added that it was difficult for him to tell if it was a small minority of businesses shutting down, or if it was widespread.
“Many people tell me they are expecting the politicians to be arrested soon,” Pool told Big League. He noted that local police and firefighters were defending the citizens against the national police.

“There’s a news article about a hotel in Catalonia kicking out national police,” Pool stated. “Personally I feel like if this kind of behavior continues the Spanish police will have to commandeer accommodations by force, and if civil servants continue to defy national police it seems like this can only go in one direction.”
As the world watched the events unfold in horror, Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy told reporters that he hopes Catalan leaders will now give up on their separatist goals and get back to political normality.

According to the Catalonian Department of Health, at least 893 voters were injured to the point of requiring medical assistance as they attempted to cast their ballots. At least 33 police officers were also injured.
HUGE: Court Documents Reveal Shot Kenosha Rioter Joseph Rosenbaum Was a Convicted Child Rapist
Convicted pedophile Joseph Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation at the Kenosha riots.
New court documents of the Pima County, Arizona circuit court reveal that Joseph Rosenbaum was convicted of various sex crimes against children in Arizona in 2002.
Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation while rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week. He is seen on camera lunging at 17-year old Kyle Rittenhouse, who eventually shot him, claiming he acted in self defense when Rosenbaum attempted to take the AR-15 rifle he was carrying. Rittenhouse attempted to flee the scene, and was pursued by two other rioters, one armed with a gun. He tripped and fell, and when the other rioters assailed him, he shot them both. Rosenbaum and one other rioter were killed, and a third wounded. Rittenhouse has been charged with first-degree murder in the shootings.
Watch video of the shootings and decide for yourself.
Shortly after Rosenbaum was identified as one of the deceased individuals, it became public knowledge that he was on the Wisconsin sex offender registry, for crimes committed in Arizona.

The man who may very well have set off the violent altercation is a convicted pedophile, judging from the court documents that were published Wednesday. A presentence report reveals that Rosenbaum committed a range of sex crimes against several boys from the ages of nine to eleven years old, including outright rape.
More documents reveal the legal proceedings against Rosenbaum.
Rosenbaum would be convicted of two of the eleven total charges.
Some leftists had speculated that Rosenbaum was merely a victim of the criminal justice system upon the revelation that he was a convicted sex offender, claiming he had been merely been railroaded for sexual activity with his 17-year old girlfriend as an adult, or something of the like. The new documents disprove such an assertion, demonstrating that Rosenbaum was convicted for some of the most heinous child sex crimes known to society, including the outright rape of children.
Previous criminal records of parties involved in use-of-force incidences aren’t usually admissible in court cases, but Rittenhouse’s argument of self defense appears more credible when his word is placed against the conduct of a convicted pedophile.
