    Although from what I have read she was already out as a prosecutor the last time Chauvin's name came up, even if only by a matter of days. The average person likely won't look that deeply, and the more informed will go deeper than that and find other problems anyways.

    The point is that burned out stores rob legitimacy from the actual movement and lessen the potential for real, needed, change to occur.

    These days I wouldn't trade a senator for their weight in gold, let alone a VP spot.

    It worked in the 1770s.

    And here we are at a similar cross road.

    These people are freaking ghouls. Just soulless and with zero shreds of empathy.

    I’m not sure what kind of training some of these cops for, quite clearly a lot of them have sociopathic tendencies.
    One of the many aspects of police reform needed is a complete overhaul of the psychological exam portion of the process. I personally grew up with a guy who was one of the most openly racist and needlessly aggressive people I’ve ever met. Guess what? He became a cop.

    The entire "Well, this is the bad prosecutor..." angle is just a tub full of water waiting for some dummy to plug his/her blow dryer in and take a dip.

    We are all living in country where you do not actually have to let a prosecutor get elected to any other office. Accept them for the necessary evil that they are, and move on. Even if you insist on smacking your head against a wall, prosecutors should never be holding an office higher than the "State..." level(even if that means Lori Lightfoot winds up out of the running...)

    They don't come off as good cops if they have no issues with pushing senior citizens.

They are also worried about those government agents who are armed, authorized to take lives and freedom away, and somehow get to answer to themselves when things go wrong.

    One thing to remember with the word libertarian is that it has been co-opted by corporate-rule Republicans. That group is as libertarian as Trump is christian - it may fool some people who WANT to be fooled, but that doesn't make it true.
    Along with even remotely sane improvements to just marijuana policy, that would be a step in the right direction.

    The problem is that pigs will be flying before either one of the big two get serious about moving either one of those things in the right direction at the "National..." level.

    And I know that the majority of BLM protesters don't condone rioting/looting ( I've even seen some young people stopping the looting), but it only takes a few bad actors to wreck a neighborhood.
    One other thing...

    It also doesn't really look at the reality of some of the really screwed over neighborhoods that people who are already in a tough spot are living in.

    Take any more than a cursory look at the spot that Chicago looting/rioting put folks who live in certain south side neighborhoods in.
