Corn Pop -
jcblass - But the police officer was charged, so why would they riot? Did they want a stiffer charge? I am confused. I could understand riots if the Grand Jury decided not to pursue anything. However, that's not the case.
Why is the black community upset (other than their usual destructive ways).
There would have been riots if they came back with anything less than murder charges for every officer involved.
There would be riots if he was charged with murder 1, just like with Chauvin and Floyd. Nothing is ever enough.
That’s why I don’t get this whole movement and don’t see an end. They don’t know what they want. I still see “Justice for George Floyd” stickers on helmets and on NBA apparel. The officer was immediately fired, arrested, and charged with murder. That’s the definition of justice. There’s literally nothing else that can be done at this point.
BLm is all over the NFL, yet Kaepernick is bitching it’s not enough or it’s fake.
It’ll never be enough.
Many protesters/rioters aren't there for Floyd or Taylor. They are there just for anarchy and to fuck shit up
Wrong. A large percent are out to be heard and a small percent to fuck shit up. After curfew is when that flips around and you see the destruction begin. When I went to protest in Oakland this year, it was very organized and if people got out of line then they were dealt with quick. Everyone there is to show support and then go home safe. After curfew it's a shit show and needs to be squashed by police and the National Guard.
I believe that as soon as curfew starts they need to have a plan to disperse the crowd in a safe manner and make arrest to the people that don't leave. Have enough police to make as many arrest as it takes to get people to go home.
Where did i say "most"?
There are plenty of people walking in the day, who stay after nightfall
I definitely understand the difference between peaceful protest and the rioters. And there's definitely people that do both.
On a completely different subject, it's hilarious to hear a local reporter, walking with the protesters, sucking wind while trying to do interviews.
