    The standard is, religions that don't bow to Trump aren't being allowed to practice and had their church cordoned off.

    Meanwhile, the rest of the Republican Party at the moment is fleeing from reporters and trying not to comment. Well, most of them.

    Sen. Tom Cotton put out an op-ed in the New York Times where he's being a cheerleader for fascism
    .

    And yeah, Rand Paul is holding up that anti-lynching bill while we're trying to get the country to believe something's being done about violence towards African Americans.

    They're riding the bomb all the way down like Slim Pickens in Dr. Strangelove.

    Except that's not the standard. Pretty much all religious gatherings over a certain number can't happen because of social distancing. This vigil and protests in general should fall under the same category.

    But if crowds can gather in the thousands for protests, then social distancing is dead and we might as well open everything up.

    Seriously? Yes, its heartbreaking about Mr Floyd's Death. Anybody that watched that video can tell this was murder. However this was taken beyond too far.

    But Rioting and looting is in no way the answer. You have these groups like BLM that bust a nut if a White Cop kills a Black Man. (They sure as hell don't care about David Dorn or black on black crimes) And before you decide to lash out at me, just think about this. If the races were reversed in that scenario. Hell, if the victim was Asian, White, or even Latino. The world wouldn't blink twice and we definitely wouldn't be experiencing these riots.
    Do you think the other 3 officers would have been charged without rioting?

    I think too many assume that the shop owners being looted and killed by looters happen to be all white. Rioters don't care what color you are if you have stuff they want to steal.

    Truly a president of law and order.

    Nope, you’ve completely ignored the situation at hand- that is the murder of another unarmed black person at the hand of law enforcement, the context of black lives matter, the history of police brutality in black communities, the advances that black people have made DESPITE getting their full rights less than a generation ago to make a “what aboutism”. Based on your previous comment, you’ve clearly ignored the peaceful protests made by black athletes and even white athletes that joined in.

    You’ve even ignored the the images of the looters that aren’t even entirely comprised of black people (it’s everywhere, lots of the rioting wasn’t even started by black people, even the right wing nuts have realized this).

    That’s why I said you have a problem with black people. It’s not hard to get the facts on stuff that’s happening in the country, one only needs to look for it.

    Some police are employing all manner of shady tactics.

    Sam Seder shared a video of what appeared to be a policeman breaking windows during a peaceful protest and then walking away. Probably to discredit the protesters and justify use of force.

    What’s everyone’s thoughts on the theory of abolishing the police and replacing it with something else?

    We don't need to abolish the police. We need to make sure they're training their officers properly and bad actors are held accountable.

    I'm not sure, but I wonder if some departments are so far gone that it might need to be done in a few cities.

    I want to believe that most of them can be saved by change in mid-level command (NYC might need to fire sergeants en masse), a focus on protecting and serving the public, a ban on any of that 'warrior cop' training, and the removal of most of the military equipment.

    And some accountability - meaning investigations can't be trusted to be handled internally.

    You need police. If they didn't exist, the military would fill that void, or something from the private sector. Neither would likely lead to preferable results.
