7,700 Black people murdered last year. 97% of them was murdered by another Black person.

Sure the White on Black murders are horrible, but Jesus... there are far more funerals and grieving relatives due to Black on Black murders.

We have to keep things in perspective.



No. Police are trained. Black on black, thugs...not the same. Not even close.

ETA: the guy wrote a bad check ffs.


Black Leaders are not as angry, and media as "concerned" over the 97% Black-on-Black, as they are when the 3% happens.


Last time I had to call 911 a gangbanger didn't show up

A gangbanger cant pull you over or toss u in jail a gangbangger has no power over anyone outside illegal means

When a Leo commits a crime it is a much bigger issue than a normal citizen

That's it. Everyone knows...and here we are. Why isn't Chauvin in jail?

Because he's a cop and we have policies. And these policies take time.

Is it B.S.? Yes. Yes, it is. So people riot and destroy stuff and take advantage.

Who's fault is this? Lawmakers. Policy-makers. The ones so far removed from everyday life and that have no stake in real world change, so nothing real ever happens.


I'm in an emotional spot right now, so forgive me please.

But I sure as hell hope so. They should all hang. Chauvin and his knee and the onlooking cops who did nothing. And they should hang now because people need to see it isn't ok and they need to see quickly.

That's my hope.

They didn't even fire Officer Noor, and his case was a pretty clear case of wrongdoing from the start too when he shot Justine Damond.

My understanding is the same attorney who secured that conviction will have this case as soon as the initial investigation is done.

Trials in this cases are what I fear is the source of the anger. Everyone already knows the truth. So we have riots.

I don't have solutions for this...I wish I did. I just know what is what and wish the wheels of justice could move with what we all know.

Everyone, even the guilty man, has his day in court. Do you know why that is? Because sometimes, and African-Americans should be well aware of this with all their grievances against the system, the guilty man isn't actually guilty. I'm not saying that's the case here, but sometimes it is.

Yes. But no one wants to, or will, wait. We all know. And we all know we have to wait for justice to turn it's wheels.

But we all already know. So, we are angry...just do it...and burn.

I know how this sounds...disconjointed...their is no winning here...Chauvin hangs now or # burns. That's it. It's messed up but that's it. He won't hang now, probably never...and this will go on...

as said, I have no answers...

The frustration of another out of control cop who is white affects all races but especially angers blacks because, let's be honest, they are prosecuted more than whites, for whatever reasons.

This is not the Minneapolis I knew for 20 years. This behavior is shocking. My son lives 5 miles from this looting and has sent pics of the burning from their front step.

Racial issues have been building for several years. The influx of immigrants have escalated the tensions. Cops are just people with uniforms. These are bad cops. Several. The response from the city was not acceptable.

Will other cities/mayors/police chiefs learn from this? Doubtful. This isn't new. How do we learn?

Why are there riots in Phoenix, NYC and...Columbus, Ohio of all places? None of these places have any influence over Minneapolis policy. Madness masquerading as justice, which is precisely why vigilantism is illegal. A lynch mob in Columbus haranguing cops is somehow equated to helping the guy in Minneapolis days after the fact?

How about the other 50 or so murdered in the city each year, not a lot of rioting over them. I know this is worst in it is an official that did it, but a crime is a crime and murder is murder. There is a reason why the cops might just be harden A-holes that would do this and the reason is because much of the population they work in are also harden A-holes.

I'm not justifying anything either, the cops should have their day in court like all the others that break laws.

I would also bet most that rioted did it to steal and didn't give a rat's ass to any of this.

Statistics say otherwise...

If an area has high crime it doesn't matter whether most people there are White, Latino or Black as the police actions are about the same. If you want to suggest that more of the population of Blacks live in areas like this, I would not debate that, so that might be why it seems they are prosecuted more as they also have a higher percentage of crimes too per population.

Two million gang members in the country really skews a lot of statistics too.

Yeah, the cops are understandably hardened to such. They have no idea what they are walking in to with every encounter. They can, and should, expect the worst.

When this guy dropped down and they didn't know what was happening, they subdued him. Right on them. They should, they didn't know. But they kept on, after handcuffed and subdued. Well beyond.

And so, they murdered this man. End of story. They need to be treated as such and until they are, Minneapolis suffers.

Yeah. I have to go to sleep but, I don't feel this is too overly upsetting to either the OP (I'm not trying to be a dick, really) or most anyone here...

Really, just another thoughts and prayers, it'll pass...

Goodnight...:/

No. Everyday. In your face. Till this # stops. This is why certain folks took a knee, what just happened.

Everyday. All day. And twice on Sunday. Shut it all down.

Agreed, main stream media fanning the flames to feel important/relevant and secondarily for ratings

I haven't heard anyone supporting the Minneapolis murder or the father/son killer combo, so Im not sure what the lamestream media is working for here? To make it appear that people aren't listening? No personally my eyes are wide open after the first and especially second

Are all you guys quite sure it's not a distraction from something else ?

You're in the middle of a global pandemic right now , ships have stopped coming in to ports , that kind of thing is going on .

Over here we've had a whole week of 'look how
naughty Dominic cummings is' , yet it's absolutely irrelevant past the first statement .

When this goes on start looking for why

Social justice isn't anything close to social or justice.

I thank my maker I live in a small town in fly over country.

We don't have to put up with that snip.

I guess I'm just shocked that people are just now waking up to the MSM running non-stop hate and then virtue signaling viewers with it. The MSM are agent provocateurs, and they have been for the past 2-3 decades. It's definitely gotten worse now, and they don't even try to hide it, but it's nothing new.

They would run 24x7 gore-porn if they could get away with it. They're insects, and they love it! Sub-human cockroach whores who will do absolutely ANY-THING to make a buck and / or get Orange Man. Absolutely ANY-THING!!

The MSM news media are the absolute lowest form of filthy festering putrid toilet scum to ever slither across your TV screen! Scraping fecal matter off the underside of a public toilet seat in a port-a-jon at a Rolling Stones concert is a gourmet meal to these filthy despicable organisms. Disgusting, infected, insects who have not one single redeeming quality! All of them! Every last one!
