So maybe change your sentence: The peaceful protesters protested peacefully and the violent protesters burned and looted.
No they were very clear they were vehement they declared upfront they were peaceful but were not
There was only one group not group a and group b -just one

I don't support the way they killed him, because they did.


I don't support George Floyd, he was a criminal that was jailed several times and he was NOT a pillar of society. George Floyd was NOT a good man, he doesn't deserve to be memorialized, and all these idiot liberals that think he does, need their head examined.
George Floyd was a drug addict and a criminal.



Protesting is one thing, setting fires, stealing and vandalizing is another thing.
Because the people protest, which is fine, does not give these animals the right to break and destroy stores that are peoples livlehoods. It doesnt not give the right for these animals to set fires all over, hurt other people, destroy others property. We watch all the looters and the people that are breaking into these stores, and they are mostly hood rats, whether that is PC or not, its the truth.



If George Floyd did not try to pass off a counterfiet 20 dollar bill? Imagine this, the world is in an uproar, over a freaking 20 dollar bills.


then, on the other hand, Derrel Chauvin has given all the good policem men and women a bad name, all in the 9 minutes, the world has changed.


Doe people really think the world will be better without police?
ok, I have a friend who bad mouths the police to no end, Id love to see her robber, LOL, who she gonna call?

Yes, 100%.

I’ve made enough money over the last two weeks to boost my pension about $5000 a year for life and will be purchasing a brand new jetski with the paycheck I’m getting from it all.

If these protests end before August, I will be very upset.

So no, I don't support some of the protests if they are combining issues like that. Black Lives Matter - yes. Abolish the Police - no.
They should look into defunding the police. What essentially happened over the years is the state tried to use the police for everything and they were not trained for it. What defunding means is to reduce the budget and move that funding to specialized groups to handle such tasks.

The world is not in a uproar over a $20. They are in an uproar because the video clearly shows an officer who is supposed to protect, completely disregard the need for human life and snuff it out while his partner and other officers watch and allow it. If there was no video, no one would know who Gorge Floyd was unless they were into amateur black porn.
The death of George Floyd was the tipping point for many blacks because blacks all know this have been happening for years and there are limited consequences when its done. The whole Central Park Karen incident, shows how other races know this is how to ruin a black persons life or get them killed. Call the cops and sound scared they show up shoot first and ask questions later.

Up to now I still dont know if the $20 was fake. Its a real problem in society when blacks have to record their interactions with other races or law enforcement because blacks know they are guilty until proven innocent and that's how the blacks have been thought for generations.

No one wants the get rid of the police. They just want the killing to stop. Its 2020, the protest is forcing the state to come to the table and talk. When a protest like this goes global its unlaying message is bigger than another officer killing a black man.

Sounds like you need an umbrella and a hammer and start randomly walking by smashing windows.

I'm fine with people in Minneapolis protesting. That's where this aberration of an event happened.

But there is no need for protesting in NYC. Floyd wasn't killed by the NYPD.

Everything and every one involved beyond the folks of Minneapolis is artificially orchestrated by the left wing nuts!

I have to say in my line of work uncertainty can be a very profitable time. Between COVID, Trump bucks and a couple of other things, I have been able to fully fund my 2020 Roth IRA contributions for me and my Chick. I have also made the max contributions to my Son's 529 for the year, plus added a little extra to his savings, and I am able to keep the lights on at my other business that has been closed and will remain closed until phase 4. I really want to get some cosmetic and exhaust work done on my BMW, but don't wanna spend the money. My chick was like you have been working your ass off for the past 3 months providing for this family. Go do something for yourself and eff everyone else. I love her so. This week I will get some estimates. When I showed her the Rolex Daytona I was considering buying she drew the line. I had to try.

Here's an actual national issue, the insane unemployment numbers from the lockdowns and closures due to Covid. Where are those protests?

Smh
Oh, really? Last time I checked, folk in Hong Kong took over the airport. That looked "mass" to me....!
