These riots need to be stopped

This is way past out of hand. The national guard needs to get things under control and ppl need to be held accountable for damages.

  • There is 0 evidence of that. Humans in general value life. Show me evidence that cops are gunning down black people indiscriminately. According to the stats only 9 unarmed blacks were shot in 2019. Ten less than unarmed whites. In 2015 it was 38 blacks. Out of an overall population of 300+ million those numbers are not even a drop in the bucket. If they were killing indiscriminately for years the death toll would be astronomical

  • All the looting and damage does not equal the value of one Black life. If Black lives were valued we wouldn't be in this position. So how many lay dead at the hands of the police? How many more have died that we don't even know about? The police having been killing Black folk indiscriminately since the police were created to protect this country's greatest assets: slaves. I don't give a fuck about looting. This country was built on looting, riots, genocide and slavery. Y'all got a fifty year pass, that's how long it's been since the last time things popped off like this. But. Hey, you reap what you sow.

  • Barney290 im just sad that you are so far removed from reality that you would think the way you do.

    Im not alone. Millions upon millions of other Americans think along the same lines as i do. Im not nearly as unique in my thought process as you seem to believe.

    On top of that you truly believe that covid-19 is a huge deal for the Trump rallys but havent uttered a peep on these protestors creating the exact same hazard. Must be because you have a political agenda.........either that or you are just a plain hypocrite.

  • Donkey, I feel for you as it has to be a sad life to always be a loner in your opinions and thoughts and not open to actual facts. Take this time for a little self reflection and one can only hope that it is beneficial for you. You truly are a lost soul.
    barney290 06/15/2020 02:23 PM
  • Barney290 im using logic and reason. Also asking for facts you refuse to provide to back up your claims. Hard to determine facts from opinion when you wont provide sources

  • Barney290 yes lafeyette park did have riots. They did have burning buildings. St johns church in lafeyette was on fire just the night before. The media keeps downplaying the rioting because it doesn't fit the narrative. Instead thry keep saying it was "mostly peaceful"

    I am perfectly fine with the use personally when there is large scale rioting, looting, and general destruction of public property. The reporters you claimed should be trusted also said on tv in front of our own eyes the protests were mostly peaceful as buildings burned to the ground behind them.

    Our government has made recommendations not laws. We can go if we choose or not. The risks are extremely low if you are healthy.

    Literally every news outlet has already stated that the covid-19 numbers were potentially inflated. Many states and hospitals have released information proving inflated numbers. People dying in car accidents counted as covid deaths. New york adding 2000 untested deaths as covid-19 deaths. They from day one haven't used any scientific methods to study this virus. And the WHO was spouting chinese propaganda. The cdc was repeating what the WHO put out so its not conspiracy to say the information is suspect. Its just common sense.

    Every single commenter ive listened to on the right said this virus wasnt going away so not sure who you are talking about that said it was going away.

  • Donkey, so it is OK to gas Americans but not our enemies? Lafayette Park protesters did not have any bricks or burning of buildings happening yet your DOJ ordered the park cleared with tear gas, rubber bullets and pepper spay so Bunker Boy could look tough while holding a bible. There were actual reporters there and it is they who reported the scene. including the use of tear gas. Do Americans actually know the risks? Would ingesting cleaning agents be one of those risks? Help me to know what the risks truly are? Why are the rallies being held in violation of our own government's recommendations against gathering in large groups? How come the virus did not go away like we told it would? Where is your proof of the CDC inflating numbers? Another fringe website? I am not interested in changing anyone's minds that is up to them. Most people tend to use logic, reason and actual facts and make a decision. Some tend to run to fringe conspiracy theories spewed by fringe thinking profit driven pundits and put aluminum foil in their hats.
    barney290 06/14/2020 03:02 PM
  • Barney290 they were not peacefully protesting. They were burning buildings. Throwing bricks bottles and other projectiles at the cops. That is not peaceful. But they didnt use tear gas according to the doj, and geneva convention doesn't apply to this since it isnt international warfare.

    1800 drop in one day isnt ok its overall unimportant if you factor in the right info. The stock market isnt determined by a single day. Ask any investment company and they will tell you the same thing. If it continues over the course of months then its bad. If it drops a lot in one day then bounces back a lot the next its not a big deal.

    No one is deliberately infecting anyone. Americans know the risks and then choose whether or not to take that risk.

    The cdc was caught inflating infection and death rates since day one. Im rightly skeptical of their stats since they are continually wrong and modifying them by the day.

    Hahaha you are cynical as hell..........but im not asking for links to specific sites. Any site you got your info from would be sufficient. Or tell me where you got the stats you cited. If not then i cant say whether its wrong or right and cant formulate my own opinions. If you want to change anyones mind or prove your point the BEST way is to offer proof. I havent seen the stats you cited and ive looked.
    doankyl 06/13/2020 05:33 PM
  • Hello Donkey, sorry but I don't use links from some fringe website but tend to use actual facts. So, tear gassing and using rubber bullets on peacefully assembled Americans is OK in your book? You do know tear gas is banned in the Geneva Convention? 1800 drop in one day in the market is OK in your book? Deliberately subjecting Americans to infection is OK in your book? Check out the travel ban with Canada on their website and I think you will see a much clearer idea of how it reads. So you don't use the CDC website for infection rates or deaths now? The good thing is Bunker Boy has his wall now around the White House and is in his bunker that's a good thing. He is dropping in the polls and that is a good thing. He isn't playing golf and cheating his friends and that is a good thing. He is no longer giving daily briefings on the virus and lying about how well it's going and that is a good thing. His buddy Flynn lost his appeal to have his guilty plea thrown out and that is a good thing.
    barney290 06/13/2020 12:04 PM
  • You are the kind of person that will only say bad and never recognize the good.

    I just looked up the stat couldnt find anything about the 1000 deaths in a single day can you provide a source or link?

    The doj used gas to push back rioters and looters. People being wholely destructive for the sake of destruction.

    Trump is going back on the campaign trail and anyone who wants to attend will do so at their own risk. The agreement is that if someone makes the choice to attend they shouldnt be able to hold someone else accountable if they contract the corona virus. Thats basic common sense barney you should have some.maybe use it.

    Not sure which military you are talking about the people i know in the military are all saying he should be harsher........any sources? I admit my own is purely from people i know currently serving.

    Canada just has a travel ban in place like every other country not sure what you are talking about cause our relations with canada is good.

    Stock market in general is doing great. Today its on the rebound. If you knew anything about stocks ud know you cant look at days weeks or even a few months and tell how good its doing. The best indicator is a full 6 months or year
    doankyl 06/12/2020 05:27 PM
  • You are grasping for ideas Donkey. Gassing American citizens? Having rally attendees now sign a disclosure statement? Hard to keep finding things to cheer about? Military is speaking out against his tactics. Canada refuses to open the border despite his rantings. Another day of over a 1000 Americans losing their lives. Stock market crashing! I have to give it to you he is definitely making America Great Again.

  • Did you happen to see the round table session he did?
    doankyl 06/11/2020 09:27 PM
  • You talking about the same man that put out a video that was then taken down by twitter? Was a really great message about unifying.......then don lemon came out a little later lying saying the president couldnt even spare a few minutes to talk about george floyd.

    As far as the rioting and looting there is a limit to what the president can do because of our federalist system. You should know that at your age.
    doankyl 06/11/2020 09:24 PM
  • What's the problem Donkey no more rhetoric about Bunker Boy and how well he is doing? Thousands of Americans dieing and Crickets out of him.
    barney290 06/11/2020 02:24 PM
  • Lol barney you use so many words when saying nothing at all.
    doankyl 06/10/2020 07:04 PM
  • Thank you Donkey, for making my point even better than I could. Nothing is more revealing than hearing it straight from the horses (donkey's) mouth.
    barney290 06/10/2020 02:38 PM
  • Barney290 tell me where in the world you would rather be as a homosexual.

    Rather than playing a pathetic victim maybe take a minute to be grateful of the opportunities you have literally just for being born in this country.

    White appologists like yourself prove how worthless it is to practice self loathing. Exactly what put me ahead of anyone else? How am i doing better BECAUSE of my whiteness? I love how you can be so certain of something yet never show any evidence of hour claims.

    Barney290 you are much older than me by now in your life you should have gained at least some wisdom.
    doankyl 06/09/2020 09:50 PM
  • It is amazing to me how ignorant white people can always use the excuse of their racism to claim that some how black people should be happy of the treatment they get in the US compared to other countries. This is like being in a car race where only white drivers get a several lap lead and win and then tell the black drivers they should be happy they are allowed to be in the race. Donkey, like I have said before you will get this years from now and then have to live with the ignorance of your life.
    barney290 06/09/2020 03:00 PM
  • Um also the video you showed didnt prove anything whatsoever. It shows a woman spouting out an opinion. Not once does she give factual information just propaganda and lies she was probably indoctrinated with from a very young age.

    Her monopoly example for instance completely disregards the millions of black Americans that have succeeded in America.

    You should travel somr. Just visit a few countries and see how much better you like treatment in america than most others. Did you know china still posts signs outside of many of its restaurants that blacks are not welcome there?
    doankyl 06/09/2020 11:16 AM
  • Because the blm and antifa are actually rioting and using tactics commonly seen in terrorist cells. Why do you dismiss that information when its obviously important? Is it because it goes against your personal narrative? I gave you 5 videos of physical evidence of minorities destroying minority communities and businesses yet you claim the evil white man did it? There is no fixing that level of willful ignorance.
    doankyl 06/09/2020 11:08 AM
  • way to completely dismiss the alt-right while falsely claiming that anybody associated with the blm movement has been destroying property.
    and what communities do we own? the communities we did own were destroyed by white people. i can share youtube links too and i suggest you watch this if you want context to the situation.
    BiDomTop 06/09/2020 09:29 AM
  • Bidomtop i do not deny that their are people being bussed in by antifa and black lives matter to stir up problems. But its not just white people looting and rioting. Its a lot of young people black and white looting and rioting. Its not just whites. Its not just blacks. But yes they are destroying their own communities
    doankyl 06/08/2020 12:08 PM
  • to those saying that the rioters are hurting their own communities, you do know that most of the rioters and looters are white, have been identified at protests and have been attempted to stop by black protesters, have been found to either have ties to antifa or the alt-right, and in a good portion of cases are not from the area in which they are rioting, right? i guess you hear about rioters and looters and assume their all black, bc it's evident you haven't read or researched not one gd thing. so why is that?
    BiDomTop 06/08/2020 10:28 AM
  • As for turning bad cops in i think the bad ones stick together and group, keeping the good cops out of their way. So how can a good cop turn in a bad cop if the good cop doesn't know whats going on? Or am i missing something? Really glad phones can record so the frustrated good cop doesn't have to stress on finding out who the bad "cop" is.
    55to99 06/08/2020 07:43 AM
  • What the police in america need to do is train their cops thoroughly and STOP giving out guns and power to these murderers that most likely joined the blue citizen killer gang just so they could make their lust for murder "legit" I wonder sometimes if these bad "cops" would of gone on to be serial killers.
    55to99 06/08/2020 07:22 AM
  • I will agree with you on that part, they Do need to police themselves better but so do teachers priests and firefighters. I still have respect for the police as I believe most are good ppl
    Windstar66 06/07/2020 03:44 PM
  • For decades we have heard the "Bad Apples" example and it is just as lame today as it was back then. The term bad apples is to point out the fact that a couple of bad apples can spoil the whole bunch and that is exactly what we see today. I am tired of hearing about it is only a few. What about the many that know who the few are and do nothing? This is just as bad as the looting is. So if you are a good cop show the country that you stand for justice and start turning in the bad ones and stop defending them and maybe we will start respecting you again.
    barney290 06/07/2020 03:16 PM
  • To those excusing the rioters, you do realize that they are only hurting their own communities right? Go on youtube right now i bet you can find over a dozen videos in an instant of black store owners, workers, and people of the community grieving as they watch their lives burn around them.

    Protesting is in the American spirit and im perfectly fine with fighting against a government that isnt doing its job but destroying your own communities is stupid and disgusting.
    doankyl 06/06/2020 07:57 PM
  • They need to stop, protest all you want. They don’t have a right to burn, loot or bust windows. Those doing that should be arrested. I believe in the protests and in the good cops that follow the law and apply it equally. Bad apples in every community including the gay, straight, black, white, teachers, garbage men, hair dressers, military etc.
    Windstar66 06/06/2020 07:09 PM
  • Just because you’re gay doesn’t mean you aren’t racist. If you’re more upset about a store or car being burned or looted than about the racial injustice that’s been going on WAY too long, you’re a racist!
    FurrfaceOK 06/06/2020 06:16 PM
  • As a Gay man, I think you forgot that Stonewall riots lasted 5 days. These riots, protests, etc are happening because for 400 years plus Black Americans have been discriminated, abused, beaten, and murdered. If you are only focusing on the Target that got looted, or broken windows and a TV missing, look closer to why people, white and black (including myself) are angry. Black Americans have tried the peaceful approach to protesting, and this hasn't worked. Christ.... even Martin Luther King who preached a peaceful was shot! I hope these riots, protests continue until their voices are heard.
    nhbearman 06/06/2020 10:26 AM
  • The looting needs to stop, but the protests need to go on. I lived in Miami when the riots happen there and Miami burned. It happen in Tampa and San Diego. Each time police either beat up a black guy or killed them. Many times those officers got away with it. Nothing was ever done to fix the problem so history will keep repeating the problem
    spacecap 06/05/2020 10:57 PM
  • The citizen killer gang is what needs to stop. I say keep rioting guys.
    55to99 06/05/2020 08:54 AM
  • It is your right as an American to peaceful protest, it is even your right to “”””The Declaration of Independence says”””””” we not only have the right but we also have the duty to alter or abolish any government that does not secure our unalienable rights, including life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
    Now the Looting I’m very against it!!!!!!
    Protests are an American way to change
    lkig_for_bottoms 06/03/2020 06:42 AM
  • I’m not sure it’s a protest anymore
    Windstar66 06/01/2020 07:01 PM
  • Well the National Guard has shot and killed an American citizen and that is what is unacceptable. As gay men we should more than anyone understand what it is like to be brutalized by the police for nothing more than being gay. Do I condone the violence and looting absolutely not but I sure do support the protesters and their cause!!!!!!!!!
    barney290 06/01/2020 04:34 PM
  • Agreed. Enough. This has turned into a criminal Empire, NOT a injustice act.
