    Too bad Michelle is an ignorant idiot

    Eric garner was a thug arrested 30 times
    Michael Brown attacked and attempted to kill a police officer

    Maybe just maybe she should shut the hell up so she doesn't say more stupid stuff..but then that's likely true for everyone, this is just her turn.

    Michael Brown took
    His own life into his own life in his hands when he decided to attack a cop.

    The problem that you are having here is that you completely do not understand the problem at hand. Not only that but your are trying to overlay your internalized prejudices against liberals and liberalism onto the situation. You are not expressing an analysis of the situation. You are just expressing the rot of conservative thought.

    This isn’t about immature people acting like spoiled children.

    I know a thing or two about spoiling children. Like the good liberal I am, I spared the rod and spoiled the hell out of my children. You are only a child once, so why burden one’s childhood with the stifling constraints conservatives like to place on their children? They always had cool bikes, the toys they most desired, wore the latest fashions. Took them to all the cool attractions across the US, from sea to sea. My house and our activities centered around fun and games. I gave them all my attention, whenever they asked for it. They have been successful in life and aren’t at all the type who would participate in vandalism and looting.

    Besides most protestors have been very peaceful.

    As far as the destruction goes, It is quite obvious that there is a great deal of latent hostility towards the police, from all walks of life. The police precinct building in Minneapolis was originally the primary target for protestors who burned it to the ground. The protest in Portland was mostly an attack on the Justice Center and the ensuing running battles with the police. In LA dozens of police cars were set on fire.

    The United States of America, the land of the free has more people in prison or jail than any other country. This country has been slowly sinking into a surveillance police state and perhaps it is time to fight back, before our freedoms are further eroded.

    And no doubt these terrorists are just victims of parents who failed to give them free reign and actually held them accountable, depriving them of what you think is fair. So now they are nice but deprived people just trying to make the point that they aren't getting everything their way.... and police should hide in donut shop until they're needed, and then they damn sure better not make any mistakes.

    Of course, IF Floyd George hadn't been passing counterfeit money, Floyd George would never have met officer Chauvin. Maybe his parents failed to tell him that was a felony, so that's not his fault either. . It's all a mistake and somebody else's fault, isn't it? And the police should understand that, make exceptions for you. Certainly, the police shouldn't make anyone angry. That's offensive and unfair, and to teach them a lesson we throw bricks at them and set fire to their cars, loot and burn down neighborhood stores all because it is so unjust that the world isn't perfect, and that has made us angry. Those damn cops should learn their lesson and not do it again. And you think that has no parallel to the thinking of spoiled brats?

    Being part of a mob but not throwing bricks simply means the person hasn't worked up the courage yet. They are apprentices, learning how it's done. IF they were respectable people- they wouldn't be part of a terrorist mob in the first place. IF you are there- you ARE a terrorist. You may be just carrying the gasoline at the moment, but you are supporting the people throwing the molotovs.

    Yes, or at very least, more people who are self-reliant and productive, who pay taxes, and who add to society instead of subtracting from it.

    Then 399,000 cops should be protesting too. Good cops need to stand up to the bad ones

    I dont think there is anything we can do to passify people who's world view is based on a falsehood. We can fight liberalism with upholding conservative values which truly are colorblind and merit based.

    We should not falter on upholding rule of law and we should stand strong against the intimidation of terroristic threats (such as cities will burn until all officers are arrested). In other words this is a war of ideologies and we just need to win.

    and more Conservatives and real leaders running cities. Democrats are failing at a miserable rate. The cities can be barely lived in and now they cannot handle how to stop rioting and looting.

    Across the board, the liberal leadership in these cities has failed. They should be removed from office, especially in Minnesota.

    It's not just the police killing of Floyd it's the killings of Floyd ,Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Aubrey one after the other by police.Taylor a 26 year old EMT was asleep in her Louisville Ky. bed when police broke in and shot and killed her. They were at the wrong address which was 10 miles away from hers hunting for a suspect WHO WAS ALREADY IN CUSTODY!! The white police have a dismal record when it comes to black citizens.

    And they are. Police chiefs and organizations across the country have done so.
    It's a shame these "honorable protestors" don't have the percentage of good men among them that the police do.
    If the police behaved like the protestors, they would beat up every one they arrested, steal their property and burn their cars.

    Never did I claim 1 cop is US police force.

    All the examples you mentioned are legitimate concerns , but have to do with incompetence not racism. And the rioting is not gaining support or sympathy for those people wrongly killed.

    You have yet to address the real reason why the protest began.

    Whatever the reason was, it doesn’t matter now. At this point, this is just anarchy. It has nothing to do with Minnesota.

    Yeah, TV is the free market giving people what they want. If you have a problem with it, also understand that when Trump was campaigning, all the stations gave Trump more free TV time that any other candidate, and they did that because Trump was good for ratings.

    If you are going to bitch about what people want to see on TV, then bitch about it when it goes your way, as well, or......

    quit whining about it. Apparently, cops killing unarmed blacks is news that sells.
    Now, that's only a true statement if cops are killing unarmed whites, as well, in equal numbers. If it's not, then it's just the news reporting reality.

    If it is true that 'cops killing unarmed blacks' is news that sells, then don't blame blacks, blame the free market. But, I don't know.

    You'll need to post a video, or provide the exact quote, if you are going to assert something like that.
