    There's a lot of people who were involved in the Mike Brown protests that had witnessed firsthand shady white men intentionally breaking windows and throwing shit to rile up the police. Hell, there are vids on Twitter right now showing shady white dudes breaking into stores with black protesters yelling at them to stop.

    There are for radical elements that use these protests for their own goals. Look at Minnesota where most of the people arrested were from out of state. I am sure that some of the white people in the crowd that are helping rile up the crowd are white supremacists trying to make things worse. It upsets em that an important message is getting lost.

    Or is their violence justified because they were white?
    Founding fathers targeted the British. Not innocent amerians.

    If you're going to lash out, at least lash out at the people you're actually in conflict with. Burning down business in your own community, many of which are owned by people of color, is neither a logical, ethical, legal, or even reasonable means of achieving your goals.

    Do you seriously imagine a large pecentage of white america are somehow going to be put in their place seeing black people on TV burning down their own freaking neighborhood? I'm skeptical.

    Cnn is showing Live coverage of people looting a shoe store. People running in and grabbing random pairs of shoes. Not looting for survival, not looting for social change. Just people stealing whatever they can because they can.

    Here in Indianapolis, some people looted a liquor store because they could. All caught on the news, and they didn't care.

    The unfortunate problem with riots over social change is you're guaranteed at least a few assholes in it for free stuff.

    This has been shown to be not the case.

    Beware of 'outside agitator' narratives.

    The fact that he is still here. Still standing at the weird "mime pretending it's windy" angle.

Of course that doesn't guarantee anything, as there was a case of a child dying while under a restraint about a year before I started working there, and there was a child who broke his nose under a restraint during my tenure there. I was not the one who restrained him, but I did sit with the kid in the infirmary while he waited for the nurse to give him his medication.

    My point is that the employee in the first case was fired and the employee in the second case was investigated until it was found that boy slammed his head into the floor while trying to break the restraint and that's how he broke his nose. Now if we could have regulations like that regarding kids who have already been sentenced to a detention facility, shouldn't we expect police officers to have to obey similar regulations when there is still question as to the suspect's guilt?
    You have my biggest respect for doing that kind of hard work, even if only for a limited time.

    Yeah, that's the sucky thing about it. It's essentially a small bunch of idiots using social justice as an excuse to commit crimes, and not giving a damn that they're dragging the movement and it's reputation down in the gutter with them.

    What to they care if they're making good law abbiding peaceful protestors look like criminal nut jobs on natonal TV if they can steal a free Xbox at Gamestop.

    GameStop forced its employees to go to work in the middle of the pandemic, didn't they? They claimed they were essential?

    Careful what you wish for.

    Cop training in the US actually includes telling young cops that killing people is a "perk" and will lead to great sex.
