    And now Atlanta has a crowd "protesting"! This isn't a protest anymore, it's "Hey we can loot Target and get away with it!"

    The guy committed a crime. He wasn't innocent.

    And yes, the few scumbags. I have no problem with criminals getting roughed up by police when they break the law. I don't give a **** the color of their skin. If they break the law, and they resist arrest, they are probably going to feel some pavement. You can't always be all nice when you are dealing with criminal *******s.

    That's exactly what it always turns into. Inner city folks burning up and destroying their own communities, waging violence against innocent local police and generally acting like a bunch of complete idiots in places that have nothing to do with what actually happened. It accomplishes nothing.

    When black on black murders, like in Chicago, are treated the same way with the same amount of media coverage and associated lootings and building burnings maybe then I'll buy into the BLM movement. Until then what happened wasn't right but push the BS crocodile tears elsewhere.

    More righty claims that they refuse to back up. I don’t know why this surprises me anymore.

    Never said you did, and a hell of a lot more than windows got broke, black owned businesses have been burned to the ground, people have lost everything they own and please note their are an awful lot of white faces in that mob...

    By the way I don't know of anyone including me that wasn't outraged by the murder of George Floyd. However these rioters just crapped all over Mr. Floyd's memory and that doesn't seem to bother you at all.

    And?

    Businesses can be rebuilt.
    Windows can be replaced...

    When you can bring George Floyd back to life then you have a point.

    And they did not "crap all over" anything. That is a passive aggressive attempt to move the guilt from where it belongs.

    The guy had tried to use a POSSIBLY counterfeit bill. There is NO indication in the article or the story that he was a counterfeiter or that he knew or even suspected that the bill was counterfeit.

    Do you know how to spot a counterfeit bill? Do you examine all your money to determine if it is counterfeit?

    The irony here is that the police have a very dangerous job that could be a whole lot less dangerous if they stopped being so dangerous. Cops need to police themselves and get rid of the jackasses that put their lives at greater risks.

    Another recent video has a distraught 90 year old grandmother standing between a police officer and her grandson lying face down on the ground with his hands out obeying orders. The whole time the cop has his gun out and trained on the two of them. It should not be the case that a grandmother should fear for her grandson's life because a cop pulled him over running a stop sign. Sadly that is the case, too many young men have been killed by cops "fearing" an unarmed person. There are more cops shot by Caucasians then blacks each year so the racial profiling is backwards.

    If young black men could not fear the police will kill them then the whole dynamic would change for the better, even the cops would have less to fear.

    The actions of these police officers degrades all other police officers and the country they are part of.
    The action of "racism" (read, stupidity) degrades the bigot and his society.
    The actions of looters degrades their group, their "cause", and humanity.

    So that
    Massive cop out. None of that crap brings George back to life either.

    And who would they be? Are there any here who have justified mob violence? Have you seen any msm personalities justifying the mob violence?

    I am a Lefty. And I am horrified to see what began as peaceful protesting be hijacked by a$$holes and damaging everything in sight. The ones doing to the damage are not doing it as a left or right supporter - they are just using an opportunity to get out and make it worse.

    How is it comparable when a black gang member shoots and kills another versus a white police officer chokes out a black man? How about when that happens several times over a decade. And the only time the officer is tried and convicted is when he is black and killed a white woman. You can't see the difference? Do you believe that black men are making sh!t up when they say they are terrified when they are stopped for a traffic ticket? When was the last time you saw several police cars with guns drawn surround a white man on the ground because he ran a stop sign?

    You are right - black on black crime is bad. Outrageous even. But it is apples and oranges trying to compare the two situations.

    Oh it's much worse than that too many white faces in that crowd, this has Soros written all over it. Invaders come to loot and pillage. ATL at least isn't a purely local affair.

    Cop out. Makes it less not more likely. Kaepernick played the NFL for a brief period of time and he seems to still be playing you.

    For once we agree. But CNN or maybe it was MSNBC had some jackass professor from Princeton yelling the white man is the problem, and the show's host was nodding his head in agreement.

    Anyone who simply yells that 'the white man is the problem' is a jackass indeed. The problem is so much more complex and cannot be boiled down in sound bites.

    Happens every time. I could write a script it's so predictable.

    You can’t kneel on someone’s neck when thy are unarmed, hand cuffed, Laying face down on the street and not resisting. That is called assault. That assault in this case led to the death of Floyd, which is felony murder.
