    More black people are killed by each other every weekend than a death by a cop in a whole year. And just because you’re unarmed doesn’t mean you’re innocent.

    Let’s burn cities down over a handful while ignoring the 100 and 1000s killed every year?

    No logic what so ever. And by the way. No one is protesting the much higher number of white people killed by police. Guess their lives don’t matter.

    And there’s always a simple solution. Don’t break the law and you most probably will never get into an altercation with police. I’m just under 50 and haven’t had a negative experience with a cop besides a frivolous ticket for passing a semi truck on the highway and making an illegal left turn. Otherwise mever done anything to make a cop nervous. And it’s been really REALLY easy.

    So where does America go from here?

    NO MATTER WHAT CONCESSIONS are made, you know it will never be enough.

    I see America devolving further into chaos and eventually becoming weaker.....until......
    Poverty and suffering becomes widespread and food shortages become common.
    At which point Americans will embrace a radical promising to return America to greatness.

    Then we get our first hard core authoritarian and we go down the path of 1930's Germany.

    That or we get attacked by Russia and China and people suddenly at last realize what abject morons they've been and how they willfully threw away paradise.

    Well, look what happened in the Soviet Union, or what is happening in Venezuela.
    These people didn't suddenly "wake up" one day, like some people might suppose. No, rather they gradually became disillusioned over time until they reached a point where they didn't really care anymore, and stopped putting up a fight, finally allowing the other side to have their way.

    You still have people in the older generation in Russia who refuse to concede that the Soviet Union was a mistake.

    Seems one innocent law-abiding, hard working, taxpaying person killed by a criminal is one too many too. But no arson and no riots for that. Hardly even gets a mention on the news.

    Either the Pliven strategy or the Communist manifesto (one or both of them) dictates that a societies police force must be dismantled or controlled, along with disarming the population, for Communists/Marxists to seize control.

    I think everything we are seeing plays into one or both of those.

    Had you been black it wouldn’t have happened most likely.

    The guy was cuffed. What sort of incredible physical marvel could he be that the cops still needed to sit on him?

    In a perfect world. On the other hand 89 police officers were murdered last year in the line of duty.

    According to data compiled by The Chicago Tribune, since September 2011 at least 174 people under the age of 17 have been killed while 1,665 kids have been shot.

    If one is too many then you must be going insane over the 174 children killed just in Chicago alone. Where’s the outrage over this? I know where it is. It’s kept quiet because it doesn’t fit the narrative of racism. This is Blacks murdering young black children and no one cares. It seems to me that Black Lives Do Matter so long as they weren’t murdered by another Black.

    100% agree. The threat was eliminated with Floyd being handcuffed. This was my post from 8 days ago. I said 2nd degree murder.

    The more I watch that video the more I’m convinced that’s 2nd degree murder. I don’t care what Floyd did prior to being handcuffed. The police are not the judge and jury. Once handcuffed and on the ground Floyd was not a threat. That officer needs to be charged with murder in the 2nd and the other 3 officers (whom I did not see in the video and am only going on what is reported) need to be at least charged with accomplice to negligent homicide. That was wrong police procedure in every manner.

    Surely you can see the distinction between the tragedy of the deaths of those kids and the appalling notion that Cops can be killers of people in their care.

    We are NOT comparing the actions of the officers that kill unarmed black men to the black gang members that kill young black children. We ARE comparing the public’s reaction of the Floyd murder to the public’s LACK OF REACTION to the senseless murder of 174 Chicago children.

    The elephant in the room that everyone is ignoring...….The black culture is a failed culture.

    Again, you are missing the important distinction. On the one hand, we have citizens killing kids, murderers, on the other, we have an arm of Government killing people, a murdering Government.

    Exactly. It’s not about race it’s about culture. Take the 6th overall pick in the ‘05 NFL draft and the 3rd overall pick in the ‘04 draft. Both men are African Americans. Both men declared for the draft their junior year. Both men have incredibly long hair. Both men signed multimillion dollar contracts. Both men are Pro Bowl players and both men had lengthy NFL careers. The only difference is that while one of them was making it rain and shooting the manager at a Las Vegas strip club the other continued his education in the offseason. One is Adam “Pac Man” Jones and the other is Larry Fitzgerald. I bet you can guess which one is broke right now.

    Do tell. Because I can come up with all kinds of stats that backs up my claim. Unwed mothers with multiple children from multiple "fathers", high crime rates, poverty, high percentage of high school drop outs, gangs, stuck on gov'ment assistance, high rates of drug abuse, low literacy rates....on an on. You have to remember the black culture is only about 13% of the populace, and look at all the problems that culture causes.

    The black culture is stuck on the gov'ment teat only vote for democrats that promise hand outs. They vote democrat.....that says a lot right there....they vote for the party that enslaves them.<---current tense.

    Okay, please do share all of those stats; I am familiar with all of the true stats, the claimed stats, the false stats, and the lack of context. Look at all the problems whites cause, law enforcement causes, etc... let's get to it then...

    Oh, I am saying that whites don't do the same.....yeah, the white culture in pure numbers is higher. But, remember we are only talking about 13% of the populace vs. 60-65% of the whites.

    here are the 2018 FBI crime stats....2019 are not available yet.
