    Trumo tried his best to make that happen calling on the MAGA cult to hold a rally outside the White House. Lucky this did not happen.

    Virginia delegate Lee Carter went out last night to confront police peacefully ask the police questions about what they were intending to do to his constituents.

    They threw a flash-bang at him.

    He stayed, now asking which officer threw it. They continued to ignore his questions.

    Carter took a knee only feet away from a riot squad, and continued to try and get information.

    They tear-gassed him.


    Tell me that the cops are not out of control right now.

And unless I miss something Target is not an institution of violent racism.
    I'd love to hear the excuse protestors are making for looting the game stop. Were they denied this year's copy of madden or something?

    Defacing monuments is one thing, but the people looting for goods and electronic equipment are just criminals using the riots as cover.

    Right now, it's a few good apples in a huge barrel of toxic sludge. I am getting really tired of all "not all... " narratives.

    This situation will make bad racist cops act out worse in the name of crowd control and restoring order. There are good police like the one's in Newwark who handled things well. Police chief Elliot Issac in Cincinnati who went two nights ago who talked to protesters outside his station and who went to an area where protesters were breaking windows and looting to see first hand the response of his officers.

    Majority of Americans didn't vote for trump in 2016 and it looks like they won't vote for him this year either.

    There are still a lot of people who will vote for him though. my aunt who lives with me is brainwashed by Trump. Calls him the greatest president in the modern age. most of the scandals about him are lies made up by liberals. the Covid virus is not a problem it is just made to look that way by the press to make Trump look bad. he is handling the riots well Etc... And this is pretty typical of his hardcore supporters.

    Now I can get behind tearing that shit down. Not a Target or someone's small business. These racist monuments that they protect so hard and people have sued and tried all legal means to get taken down but they are still up.

    break all that shit
    Now THIS makes sense, and I think that is a great way to channel all the anger and make a strong and necessary statement.

    I loved my life in America, and have nothing but fond memories and love for that period of my life, but this narrative it's "the land of the free" is absurd. It's never been that, not really. And it seems to be getting worse, not better, for people.

    I agree with this. Still plenty of time for Trump to either dig himself in a deeper hole or dig himself out of it. Too soon to tell.

    I just happen to think looting and burning down stores if innocent people is wrong too.

    This doesn't have to be an either/or situation. All of the above can be wrong.
    You seem mainly concerned with the looting and burning of buildings though, I mean thatís all your posts are about. You donít seem to give a dam about police brutality. Only the looting and rioting. Youíre placing more value on buildings and TVs than you are on actual human lives. Like ok, it sucks that some peopleís businesses were destroyed but buildings can be rebuilt and stuff can be replaced. George Floydís life canít be replaced.

    And neither can the many others who have died because of police brutality, nearly every week a black person is killed by police. That needs to stop, like right ******* now. Itís unacceptable, plain and simple. Itís a decision on your part to switch focus just because you see some buildings on fire and stuff being stolen.
