The Boston Tea Party led to the American Revolution. Even Jesus himself started a riot in the cleansing of the temple. The world is witnessing now the amplified collective pleas for justice. People have learned that there is no other way to be heard outside of civil unrest.

I hear lots of people making excuses for this violence when there is no excuse. These people are reacting to yet another false narrative promoted by our media and others. Police officers are not gunning down unarmed black people on a regular basis. Last year, out of the 10 million arrests made by American law enforcement, there were 1,004 people shot and killed by officers. Of those 41 were unarmed, 9 of those were black and 19 were white.


During that same year 89 police officers were killed in the line of duty.
Just last weekend in Chicago 82 people were shot and 19 killed in 48 hours.



But for some reason thousands of people are in a frenzy over this one man who everyone agrees was murdered and no one is making excuses for it!

Absolute bunk. What "racism"??? Which group? From whites to blacks? Or from blacks to whites? From blacks to Hispanics? Or from Hispanics to blacks? From blacks to asians? Or from asians to blacks? Or maybe you are talking about from Hispanics to whites?? Or maybe you are talking about blacks toward blacks?? I believe 24 blacks were shot and killed in Chicago last weekend, with another 61 being shot but surviving ...by other blacks. Hmmm...wheres the mass rioting, stealing, beatings, and murder of innocents over THOSE black deaths?? Yea, nowhere, because it dies not fit the agenda of SOCIALISM AND DESTRUCTION OF CAPITALISM that the left is pursuing. Just get of that bunk. What is called racism by the left wing media is tribalism, pure and simple. Always been in the world, and ALWAYS WILL BE. The FACT is NO ONE except criminals and liberal bootlickers are "tired" of our police force and our laws. If you do not want to be arrested, dont commit a crime. If you dont want a beat down by a couple cops, dont resist arrest. If you dint want go get shot and killed, don't pull a gun or knife on a cop, or continue to resist arrest.and if you would stop using crazy mind altering drugs such as meth, you might have sense enough to not resist arrest and get yourself into bigger trouble possibly even death. Got all that? It's really quite simple. You want to act like a savage animal, get ready to pay the consequences, perhaps paying with your life. The fact of the matter is, Mr. Floyd SHOULD have lost his life 14 years ago, period. That's when he committed several felonies, breaking and entering into a womans home, terrorising her, then shoving a gun into her stomach and threatening to blow her guts out if she didnt give him and his FIVE co-criminals all the money she had. And THAT.moment is when Floyd SHOULD have bern planted 6 feet under, by the woman, or another person of her house, such as a boyfriend or husband.but she was not armed, and there was no one else in her house to defend her from the hard core criminal Mr Floyd. After all that, his lawyer found a panty waist judge to give him just 5 years prison time in a plea bargain. Disgusting sentence. And ever since that day, IMO, one Mr. Floyd has been living on borrowed time. Evidently he hadn't learned his lesson,since 14 years later he was stoned out of his mind on Meth, Fentanyl, and who knows what else, while committing yet another crime, passing known $20 counterfeit Bill's inside a store, then becoming belligerent when the police arrived, then very evidently resisting arrest, as is a common behavior that people when on that combination of drugs and alcohol. And he finally paid his OWED DEBT to society from 14 years previous, IMO. Do I feel pity for him? Not one tinker's damn of pity. Who i feel for are yet another cop(s) doing their thankless job, in an inner city, with the perps being once again the whiny liberal lefts poster child. And I feel for the many business owners who's property has been destroyed. And I feel for the taxpayer, who is going to have even MORE money stolen from them to be used to replace government property that has been destroyed, and to pay for overtime of the various police departments, pay for injuries and funerals of the government police officers killed so far, etc. But for Mr.Floyd? All I feel is satisfaction that JUSTICE finally caught up to him, 14 years late.

Exactly!!! I can’t even...because what I WANT to say would not be nice!!!

No. Wait. I WILL say this: I have deR friends in the Kansas City area. He is a pastor of small church. She is a world-renowned Christian recording g artist. He grew up in Kansas City and was a teacher before he went into the Ministry. She grew up in DC. You can not imagine how many times they have been targeted by the police, both in Kansas City and other places in the US. Many times the cops explain that they are looking for a suspect and he - or they - fit the description. Do you know how many times the only description given is “he was black”, or “African-American”. She has even felt the sting of being treated differently than white counterparts in the Christian music industry. Yes, racism is VERY much alive and well, sadly. My nephew’s new bride could tell you some stories as well. As could anyone in her family. My prayer is that my great niece or nephew that they are expecting will never know that anguish.

Correct, and not near enough is done to deal with both groups
