This is totally irresponsible. Don't they know they're supposed to be social distancing? Are they wearing masks?!

Where are the Karens of the world when you need them to impose draconian public order measures?
Haha! I was worried about this also! I saw all the protest and people shoulder to shoulder and wondered if they remembered that COVID was still out there. More importantly however, I wish that the protesting their doing happens with love and compassion. We are attacking and rioting others with the same hate and sentiment that killed George Floyd. We have to remember that God tells us to love our neighbor as ourselves. No matter what they have done, what they believe, or who they are!

in two weeks when some protesters that went wild and looted com down with the virus and go to the hospital. Contact tracing is going to be interesting, well i was breaking windows and robbing stores with other people during the protest and was around a lot of people.

....a logical fallacy in which an equivalence is drawn between two subjects based on flawed or false reasoning.

Explain how this is apples to oranges, exactly.
The difference is being murdered by someone with a badge and a gun
Someone we entrusted to protect and serve

Go watch about an hour of clips from the tv show ''Cops'' and get a taste of what they do every day .. You could not do better, maybe the same .. I've been stopped plenty of times and I learned early how to act .. Bad situation and they have charged the cop, now what ? Fire all law enforcement or let every suspected criminal go ?
Why have you been stopped plenty of times, and why did they, or maybe even yourself, teach you early on how to act?

Just curious.
Do all the people in the streets not have to work for a living?
Been retired for a few years now, but when I was still working, I never had time for such nonsense.

Hi bojack, I hope you are having a great day today. Noone should apologise for what they were born as. Nothing wrong with being White, Black, Hispanic etc. Nothing wrong with being proud of who you are. I am not in agreement with looting, or burning down anything. I think we can agree that is wrong. I think we can agree that police who abuse there authority and who don't follow the laws of the land should pay a consequence.

Anyone who commits murder should have their day in court. That's the law. What I am seeing is the focus being on the looting and violence and not the heart of the matter and that is the Police brutality is out of hand and something needs to be done about it. SOME of them have let that badge and position go to their heads and they think they are immune from the consequence of their actions. Why? because many of them have gotten away with murder.

Many do treat Non white indiviuals differently. Notice I said SOME. If a police officer or any public servant cannot do his or job without any form of bias, then he or she shouldn't hold the position. A public servant is to look out for the interest of ALL. Not just black, white, hispancs, democrat, republican etc. It's disheartening to see so much hatred among the people.

The bible says in Isaiah 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord .

We are living in a time marked by all kinds of –isms, where we can’t disagree without also hating or being nasty to one another. It's time for ALL of US to do better.

1 John 4:20 (NKJV) If someone says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?
Haha, now you're saying I hate the guy ? And police are trained to take down criminals, what are you talking about .. And what do the non-white individuals have to do about the situation ? It is not about race anyway, it is about culture .. I hate it for Floyd and his family but outside of them they are using his death to destroy and be lawless .. If you condone the rioting and lawlessness then you're in on it too .. Do you even realize what's going on friend ?

Oh good grief I was speaking in general and of the hatred that I have seen online on television etc. from all kinds of people. NOT YOU. I even said in my post that the rioting and looting were wrong. Some of you just want to argue for the sake of arguing. I WAS NOT ATTACKING YOU. Yes I do know what's going on. People are angry and are hurt and want to be heard and not many willing to listen. You have some that just want to cause chaos. I am not ignorant to satans devices.

I was stopped because I sped, and used alcohol, drugs sometimes when I was young and my behavior stood out to the police, You ? And I had enough sense not to make matters worse by lying to the police or acting up .. I straightened up or I'd have probably been dead or in jail ..

I was just responding is all , if folks want unity and all then maybe the ones with the problem should make a change instead of insisting it's all someone elses fault .. I didn't take your post as an attack , I wont even remember it tomorrow or who posted .. lol

The people at fault should be held accountable and held to the same standard and law as everyone else. Noone wants to admit that there are thuggish rogue cops out there who do not uphold the law and honor their oath to protect and serve. Thank you for reminding me why I stopped coming here in the first place.

You shouldn't be so sensitive .. Have you ever wondered how so many people who knew Jesus were led to join in and call for Barabbas ? It boggles my mind

On the link I posted of the gov report on victimization between 1993 and 2015 there has been a dramatic reduction on race victimization. i think the people has learned from it yet there’s riots did people all of a sudden forget about victimization is at its lowest since the L.A riots.

Page 4 has a graph that shows the reduction in victimization.

https://www.bjs.gov/content/pub/pdf/rhovo1215.pdf
I did not say anything about victimization in general. I only said that Minnesota did not learn from the LA experience with Rodney King and did not take just measures against the perpetrators. Does not mean that no one learned.
