    Anyways, with Trumps visit to my state today, I live near Bangor, one of the states biggest papers is calling for him to resign

    https://www.pressherald.com/2020/06/...ld-resign-now/

    I was only able to briefly stop by the protest today near the airport, decent anti Trump crowd, plenty of crazy Trumpers as well, kind of a crazy scene lol

    Fine, dude. Start naming them. When you get to a thousand, you might not be a hypocrite.
    I'm not saying looters are murdering 1000 people ... but I am saying the lives lost to the looters matter too. If that's somehow hypocritical in your mind so be it.

    I still don't seem to see any names of the victims of "looting" that's somehow murder and not theft he's complaining about.

    Does it even come close to this?





    Again, y'all seem to have trouble actually doing the work on any argument where you're pretending "both sides are just as bad".

    Maybe you'd like to give credence to the president trying it on Charlottesville again, eh?

    Name them.

    Unless you can't. Because it sure seems like you can't, and this is posturing and a false argument.

    To defend systematic racism and police brutality.

    Great cause, you're working on.

    You might as well just start with the "All Lives Matter" shtick at this point, your so close already.

    Entire BPD Emergency Response Team resigns in support of suspended officers

    BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)–News 4 has learned the entire Buffalo Police Department Emergency Response Team has resigned from the team.

    That’s a total of 57 officers.

    We’re told this is a show of support for the officers who are suspended without pay after shoving 75-year-old Martin Gugino.

    They are still employed, but no longer on ERT.

    ‘Police just went nuts’: Charges dropped after video surfaces of police beating student, other protesters with batons

    A Temple University student arrested during protests Monday was released from custody Wednesday after video surfaced of one police officer striking him in the head with a baton and another using his knee to pin the student’s face to the street.

    Prosecutors dismissed the charges against Evan Gorski, 21, an engineering student, after viewing the YouTube and Twitter videos, according to his attorney, R. Emmett Madden.

    Madden said Thursday that he had been told by court personnel that Gorski was being held on allegations that he assaulted a police officer by pushing him off a bike, causing him to break a hand.

    Eight seconds into the 36-second video, Gorski — with a ponytail and wearing the Eagles jersey — appears to reach in to separate an officer and a protester, and immediately retreats when another officer raises his baton.

    That officer then strikes Gorski sharply on or near his head and tackles him, while another officer presses Gorski’s face to the pavement by placing his knee on the back of his head and neck. Madden said Gorski required medical treatment.

    That's better than saying some lives don't matter, right?

    It's not like some of the business being destroyed and the lives lost weren't minority people too. Just saying.

    I saw this and almost couldn't believe it, but for the past 5 years I've been forced to accept so many things I thought would be unthinkable . . . and that is so depressing.

    I personally know 4 people who had their lives livelihood ruined in the past couple says due to looting... to them it's a real issue.

    To others it's not... just something they read about on the internet. And I'll wager some view police brutality that way too.

    All I'm saying is there is plenty of tradegy to go around.

    Black Lives Matter was created because of Trayvon Martin's death who WASNT killed by a cop.
