At Least 2 Killed In Nationwide Protests Over George Floyd's Death
One person was killed in Detroit as hundreds of people gathered in the city's downtown area as part of the nationwide protests.

As WXYZ TV, an ABC News affiliate, reported, a Detroit Police Department spokesperson said, "A grey Dodge Durango pulled up and fired into the crowd, striking a 19-year-old man." The shooting did not involve police.

In Oakland, Calif., a contract security officer for the Federal Protective Service was killed and another injured in a shooting at the Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building on Friday night, according to a statement from the FBI. The service is part of the Department of Homeland Security.

The officers were shot after a vehicle approached the building, and "an individual inside the vehicle began firing."

Maybe we need to ask ourselves as a nation what brought us to this point
How did we get to the point that people feel like they have to resort to violence and destruction in order to have their voices heard?

There is no excuse for riots.
Agreed. But these rioters were waiting for an excuse to unleash violence, destruction and anarchy across America. And guess who is behind all this? Leftist billionaire George Soros who has been funding Antifa since 2016. Yet no one has gone after him or named his as the chief conspirator. There may be other billionaires involved also.

Attorney General William Barr has identified the rioters and looters as Antifa and other Far Left groups but he has not mentioned Soros. Without the money that Soros is pouring into this, there would be no riots.

Barr Calls Out Antifa and Other Far Left Groups Over Riots, Warns of Federal Prosecutions
https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/20...left-groups-riots-warns-federal-prosecutions/


For those who are not familiar with Antifa and other Extreme Leftist/Fascist/Anarchist groups here is an article which will open your eyes:

Origins of Antifa
Briefly, what is Antifa and why should anyone care about it?


The Left’s explosive, prolonged rage at the election of President Donald Trump on Nov. 8, 2016, gave new life to the ultra-violent leftist movement known as Antifa.

As a result, Antifa, which has been described as a revolutionary communist-anarchist militia movement that aspires to forcibly overthrow the United States government, is responsible for “a level of sustained political street warfare not seen in the U.S. since the 1960s.”

Reports of Antifa violence are everywhere, which is why the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has quietly designated Antifa as “domestic terrorists.” (Capital Research Center produced a three-part documentary series, America Under Siege, about Antifa and other political actors.) [Question: why did DHS "quietly" designate this group as domestic terrorists rather than make a public outcry at that time? Which means that DHS should take some responsibility for what is now happening]

Antifa is not a single organization: it is a movement or coalition of leftist groups, each of which claims to combat “fascism,” a political ideology whose definition academics have been arguing about for decades. The word Antifa itself is a truncation of anti-fascist. Despite the name, the movement embraces fascistic tactics... But Antifa operates under a twisted definition of fascism, labeling mainstream conservatives fascists and lumping them in with white-supremacists and neo-Nazis.

Antifa has gained new prominence in the post-Obama era. They trace their roots back to Nazi Germany. Although they opposed the Sturmabteilung (SA), or Nazi storm troopers, like the SA they also used violence to intimidate political opponents and break up their meetings and rallies. It could be argued that the ideological distance between Antifa and the now-defunct National Socialist German Workers’ Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei, abbreviated as NSDAP) or Nazi Party, is so slight it can be measured in millimeters.

Determining who funds Antifa is difficult because the movement is highly decentralized and consists of private individuals and loosely affiliated groups... Nonetheless, the left-wing billionaire George Soros has ties to Antifa through a group called the Alliance for Global Justice (AfGJ). Soros’s philanthropy, known at the time as the Open Society Institute, gave $100,000 to AfGJ ($50,000 in 2004 and $50,000 in 2006)... [Question: why has Mr. Trump failed to go after George Soros, since Soros is bound and determined to destroy America]

Refuse Fascism was created in the weeks after Donald Trump’s unexpected victory over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. The group’s goal was summed up in a slogan on its website: “It’s Fascism: Drive Out the Trump/Pence Regime!”

Refuse Fascism participated in rioting on Feb. 1, 2017, at the University of California, Berkeley, with the goal of preventing conservative controversialist Milo Yiannopoulos from giving a speech. The rioting caused more than $500,000 in damage...

Meanwhile, here are just a few examples of Antifa violence from 2017:

On March 4, hundreds of Antifa activists descended on Berkeley to use violence to disrupt a “March 4 Trump” rally. At least 10 protesters were arrested. The same day Woody Kaine, son of Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va..), was part of an Antifa assault on Trump supporters in the rotunda of the Minnesota Capitol. Kaine fought with police as they tried to arrest him for lobbing a smoke bomb.

On March 25, Antifa launched a counter-protest at a pro-Trump event in Philadelphia. They chanted, “Any time, any place, punch a Nazi in the face!” and forced the cancelation of the rally. Antifa hurled bricks at Trump supporters during a march in Portland, Oregon, on June 4. Police relied on tear gas and stun grenades to disperse the mob. [Question: Why did Mr. Trump fail to go after Antifa at that time as a terrorist organization and have them all arrested and prosecuted? Therefore he too is partly responsible for what is now happening]

On August 19, “[w]hen a few dozen people held a free speech rally in Boston…, some 40,000 ‘anti-fascist’ protesters gathered to stage a counter-demonstration,” according to a report. “All told, there were 33 arrests, mostly for disorderly conduct and assaults on police officers.”The same month in Berkeley, Antifa protested President Trump’s proposed border wall and the very existence of America. “No Trump, No Wall, No USA at All!” they chanted...

Because of the rise of Antifa in the current political climate, CRC is launching a rolling exposé on the movement. In a series designed to grow into a separate website, CRC will examine in more detail the origin and history of Antifa, the ideology behind the movement, Antifa leaders and sympathizers, sources of funding, and common coalition partner groups. The exposé will include databases to make it easier for readers to track members, events, and even victims.

We all have the right to speak .. Brats who were never disciplined or shown how to act resort to tantrums for attention ..
4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.

Ask ten random looters running with cases of alcohol if they know the name of the man killed. But not one of them will know it. This has nothing to do with Floyd.

Just saying. They tried peaceful protest and that didn't work
also if I killed someone on camera in broad daylight, I would be in police custody within the hour
It wouldn't take burning down the entire city for me to be arrested

He was arrested two days ago, right? So why are they still at it? Stores being looted, is that to force them to arrest a cop? Nope! The first day there may have been some sincere protesters. After that it's just an excuse to break the law, destroy property and run buck wild. Again I say, this has nothing to do with Floyd.

Peaceful protest doesn’t work whatcha mean by that?
the fact that this even happened in the first place is a testament that peaceful protest don't work
This officer had 18 prior complaints against him for unnecessary violence so the entire police department is complicit
I don't condone violence and destruction of property but at the very least, if a police officer knows that rioters will destroy the entire city if he kills someone for no reason, it might make him think twice
The police should fear the people, not the other way around

How are the police going to do their job if the fear the people? What an odd comment. There should be mutual respect. Weed out bad apples quickly and problem will be solved.

A mob has a cycle of violence that doesn’t subside before there has been a crescendo, or before some external power has forced the mob to stand down.

The way I see it the arrest of the officer is not enough of a crescendo. It doesn’t put an end to this in the eyes of the mob. It’s like vigilante law, the mob doesn’t stop before someone is swinging from the nearest tree.

The authorities need to put an end to this before it spreads throughout the country. They have to communicate. More violence is now contra productive.

This might make the thugs think twice , and I whipped my children when they were young .. No coddling or brats acting up , talking back ever in my house , no such thing as ''time out'' either .. And no community to raise my children .. Why do our black communities put up with it all, but expect others to ''fix'' it for them ..
