USA burns. The George Floyd Thread

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I thought we should put all the news relating to the protests going on in the states in one thread. Lots of crazy going on right now. 

 

National Guard summoned to aid cities amid clashes

ATLANTA -- Protesters burned businesses in Minneapolis. They smashed police cars and windows in Atlanta, broke into police headquarters in Portland, Oregon, and chanted curses at U.S. President Donald Trump outside the White House. Thousands also demonstrated peacefully, demanding justice for George Floyd, a black man who died after a white officer pressed a knee into his neck.

Destroying your fellow citizens property, stealing and hurting people...the thousands of peaceful protesters must be ashamed of these people. 

 

 

I saw in another thread 'child militia' ?

 

Is that even real, I've never seen such a thing.

My guess is it's a "Dad of the Year" candidate and his sons.

Trevor Noah raised a good point yesterday about the social contract that we all have with each other that makes a society run. Its very clear that if you're black in the US that contract isn't held up in the same way as for others. I'd be pretty mad too.

what good has peaceful protest brought many of them? 

Lol so when people like kos have their green protests you would be happy if he burned your vehicle and robbed your business and smashed all the windows?

I have no idea what you're referring to.

When peaceful protesting doesn't work, you have to escalate.


Windows, tv's, doors can all be replaced. People can't.

Businesses smashed and vehicles destroyed cost average Joe jane money.

what he heck does KOS have to do with this topic? 

 

I'll ask you again, what good has peaceful protesting done to help many people in the US facing racism and police brutality? 

And I asked you a question yet you didn't answer.

People like Ryan Strome [I'm assuming an orange Cheeto supporter] want whites to continue killing unarmed, non-resisting blacks, have "peaceful protests" for a few days, have a couple hashtags trend on Twitter, and then the news cycle forgets and moves on. 

 

People like Ryan Strome don't want the oppressed to actually try and be heard

Crime is wrong but what are people to do? Proper reform has to happen in the police force down there. 

IMO, this is going to drag on. The divide we have all been talking about is taking shape on their streets. 

And this isn't the football field, you can't have the POTUS just request to 'Get those sons of a b----s off the field'

OK lets not do this dance and try to stay on topic. KingofSurrey smashing a window for the green cause isn't the same thing going on in the US right now and you know it.

 

Black people in the US protest peacefully and yet still get killed by police at a much higher rate. You seem to want to gloss over that? not sure what your point is.

Average Joe and Jane can call up Geico and get reimbursed.

 

Can Mrs. Floyd call up her local insurance agent and get her son brought back?

How do they get reimbursed? They have to pay a deductible. Also having claims against your vehicle hurts its value.

No she can't get her son back, none of the people murdered can but they don't burn innocent people's property.
