Things are much more nuanced than this.

I predict mostly marching and shouting by day and mostly looting, burning, and rioting by night.

A march doesn't mean there will be riots. There has been thousands of peaceful protests regarding blm before.

BLM organizations arent good at condemning violence but trying to say that all protesters are eventual violent no-good rioters is doing nothing to help the situation.

Your approach is the same as cnn and msnbc saying all the protesters are peaceful.

Things are much more nuanced than this.





I'll be fair, I'll give it a 85% chance that a riot will break out at some point.

I never will have FB. It is garbage. However, the weak minded that do use Facebook are likely highly susceptible to this kind of social engineering.

No it should not be ignored. But it should not be assumed. Plenty of peaceful protesters who do not want violence. We should respect those who peacefully protest. It's the foundation of this nation's freedom.

And u do defend cops when appropriate. I believe a lack of training is a big issue in these contrshootings.

People are too eager to take extreme sides.

I do agree that the initial movement was, in some cases, usurped by antifa, anarchists andcfar left ideologies.

The looting and rioting is definitely hurting the initial racism and police brutality issues. Thise who still want to invoke change and create dialogues ahould be respected.

Did you read my post or did you do what all lefties do and just seen a word you don't like and then typed away?
Serious question because I actually explained why a few peaceful protesters are no guarantee for a peaceful protest. Because previous behaviour is the best predictor of what to expect in the future.
Previous behaviour that I have seen and witnessed from the rioters/protesters includes burning down businesses, murdering people and being intimidating in groups, Insults, swearing and looting for justice.

I ended by saying that I can't say I have seen anything in any of the protests that would predict a guaranteed 100% peaceful outcome. I'd be an idiot if I thought that.

Please amaze me by seeing the logic behind my reasoning.

Or for the eternally lazy:
Who do you think is a more suitable pet for a nice child?
a) Guinea Pig
b) Wolf

A guinea pig could kill, if it bit through your aorta, a wolf could have a good day and just lick the child's face.

However in general I hope you'd say that the wolf may not be such a good pet for a child, because of previous behaviour!

Same with these protesters. Some could be peaceful, but I wouldn't take my chance after everything.
