Trump's first impluse is to resort to religion and violence. It is quite frightening.

It's pretty damn hard to take them seriously when black gang memebrs killing black children in the streets of black communities isn't seen as important enough of an issue for them to make a big deal about.

If more Americans are killed by their fellow americans every year than by terrorists or foreign threats, why is our military budget approaching a trillion dollars a year?

Come on man. Outrage isn't a finite thing and different situations elicit different responses. What would protesting against a gang do? How can black people realistically help to get rid of the gang threat if they also view the police as a threat? Who would they call? What would you personally do?

Also... not to mention... almost all crime in america is within its own race. People are almost always murdered by people they know. So black on black is more prevalent than white on black... But also white on white crime is more prevalent than black on white. Asian on Asian is more common than white or black or mexican on asian.

Its not false, it just doesn't really mean much and damn sure doesn't mean they shouldn't care about people being murdered by police.

It's like the example of seeing on the new a family grieving about how their innocent son was senselessly murder & mother claiming they were a good kid who did nothing wrong while crying her eyes out. But wait wait hold up they were a known gang member selling drugs on the street corner who they know was gunned down & killed by rival gang memebrs. Not saying their killer/killers shouldn't be brought to justice but take some responability for the fact that they were partially at fault for doing the things they did that put them in their situation don't go acting like they were a fucking saint.

Fact is when you engauge yourself in certain activities & behaviors it can lead to putting yourself in questionable situation that may have life threatening consquences, so don't go playing it up like they had no part in their own downfall.

Ok but George Floyd was accused of writing a bad $20 check. No word on whether or not he actually did unless I've missed something.

Eric Garner was ACCUSED of selling loose cigarettes. (no one ever said whether or not any evidence of that existed)

John Crawford was just shopping for a BB Gun.

There's just way too many examples to act like criminality is the common denominator, as opposed to an overly militarized police enforcing the laws of a system built by slave owners and racists.

Its not a one dimensional problem. You can of course point to other things that need fixing, but that doesn't mean this doesn't. It might just be another part of this very same clusterfuck.

Curious how the Trump supporters feel about this now? Having a president that is trampling all over your constitutional rights......


:P


No way man.

The government is going to protect our rights by stopping the people, who are just puppets of the deep state and George Soros.

Can't you see through the propaganda?

They're going to save our free speech from the censorship of other citizens by taking away free speech on the internet. Its facebook and twitter who want power, not the government who is currently in power and seizing more power. The Fake News Media™ is the Enemy of the People™ and that's why they need to continue to be pepper sprayed and arrested while covering the riots.

Once the united states federal fucking government, the most powerful force the world has ever known, has control of our social media, cable news, and has cities on lockdown, only then will we be safe from the deep state control.

@Dread, Eric Garner wasn’t selling loose cigarettes. He had just broken up a fight when the cops rolled up. It’s in the court case documents.

I’m aware that is what was really happening, but they were questioning him about selling loose cigarettes in the video right before they killed him.

Now my loony lefty friends are calling for police forces to be abolished nationwide. It’s not even liberalism anymore, just hipster-fantasy anarchism.

I agree that’s absolute fantasy.

What needs to change is what we ask of and what we expect of our police.

There’s very very obviously stupid things we could be changing. And it would work, as evidenced by every other functioning democracy on earth.

Disease
Unemployment
Civil unrest
A president that peddles hate, lies and conspiracy theories

At this rate, if Trump loses the election, 2020 can end up with gun fights in the streets of America.

I’d be shocked if he loses. I think he’s got lots of scams going on that will make sure he wins.

I wouldn't be shocked either way. There is a lifetime between now and the election.

But if he loses, his ego won't handle it. He can flip out. He might claim the election is rigged. He has the serious ability to whip his hard core base into a frenzy. It can get ugly... and remember that would be 2020 level NOVEMBER.
