I know these protests are being commented on in a couple of threads but here is a place for contribution on the protests themselves.

This link I posted will be updated and expanded upon constantly and I'm sure there are countless other news outlets that will have coverage as well.

This is unreal and frightening.

Such a tremendous amount of damage is being done in so many cities across the USA and I'm sure there will be other lives lost.

It's a freaking shame to have to see firefighters putting their lives at risk to extinguish fires set by arsonists using the protests as an excuse to destroy property that had NOTHING TO DO with the murder that sparked the protests to begin with.

It's double-bad for the firefighters. First they get dragged into situations that erupt due to the reckless actions of bad police. Then on top of that they're probably also getting shot at by snipers among the rioters if they show up to put fires out, which seems to always happen a few times when these things happen. That pisses me off. Saw one comment on Twitter that summed it up pretty good by someone who also feels bad for the firefighters - "it's not like anyone on the streets right now is yelling out in anger "fuck the fire department"". :|

It's pissing me off as well.

As far as I'm concerned if there are any victims of these fires the arsonist should be charged with murder.


The assholes looting are just opportunistic thieves who likely wouldn't do their shit if it wasn't for this situation. Robbing and destroying businesses for no freaking reason. :roll:

Luckily it appears that everyone gets the hell out of the immediate area when a fire gets lit. And the firefighters have been told to restrict their actions to trying to stop the flames from spreading, and they're doing it from a distance with the ladder trucks and not going into the buildings while they're ablaze. No need to waste any of those guys' lives in this mess.

I have a sneaking sense that this round of riots is going to be as epochal as the Watts and Detroit riots in the 1960's, and the LA riots in 1994. There's just too much malice (Trump/GOP) and outside factors (COVID) involved this time that have stirred up a real bitches brew. I don't know if this is the opening stage of a civil war but it's definitely the prelude to something really significant happening, like some real mega-violence occurring at both the upcoming DNC & RNC conventions before the election.

I was thinking the same. There have been many other protests, sadly sparked by similar motivations, in recent years but this one that has been happening over the last few days just feels different.

Something big is going to happen.

Yeah. If Bart's home making sure the guns are ready and the ammo's within reach I certainly won't blame him for it. :|

Maybe this will help calm things down.

Naw, no matter the outcome of any murder trial the deceased mans death is just an excuse for these clowns to go nuts and get free stuff while destroying everything in their own communities that they can lay their hands on much like 92 in Los Angeles.

It’s definitely due to a lot of pent up rage that’s been exacerbated this year by the pandemic.

I read a snarky tweet the other day that really summed it up. “You know America is getting back to normal when black are getting killed again for no reason.”

And in many ways it’s sad that there is such senseless destruction of property and looting. But if that is what it takes to affect some change for once then t might be a good thing. Peaceful protests haven’t gotten anywhere. Kneeling during the anthem hasn’t worked. Maybe burning down a few police stations will get the police to wise up that people aren’t going to take their thuggery anymore.

To quote Tupac:
Quote:
They done push me to the limit I'm all in
I might blow up any minute, did it again
Now I'm in the back of the paddy wagon
While this cops bragging about the nigga he's jacking
I see no justice
All I see is niggas dying fast
The sound of a gun blast
Then watch the hearse past
Just another day in the life 'G'
Gotta step lightly cause cops tried to snippe' me
The catch, they don't wanna stop at the brother man
But then they'll have an accident and pick up another man
....
Niggas!, isn't just the blacks
Also a gang of mother-fuckers dressed in blue slacks
They say niggas hang in packs and their attitude is shitty
Tell me, who's the biggest gang of niggas in the city
They say niggas like to do niggas,
Throw me in the cuffs with just two niggas
A street walkin' nigga and a beat walkin' nigga with a badge

Without a doubt all the anger, fear and uncertainty have contributed. IMO anyway.

Anxiety levels are way up.

I see it even here. Everyday.

The day a mob of black people can march into the state capitol dressed in camo and armed with assault rifles, and be called "good men" by the President there will be no need for this kind of shit.

Speaking of Donnie Dumbfuck, he hasn't tweeted in over ten hours, since the crowds of protesters started gathering outside the White House. Just like every other day of his miserable life he's quite safe behind the protection of others standing in front of him. :lol:

Looting shit from Target or Wallyworld won't stop because politically correct charges were laid.
Neither will burning buildings.. both have nothing to do with the
CNN led bullshit race baiting and instigating violence going on...


Those two worked together;
Drugs and underlying health conditions means the lawyers are going to have a field day.


This is a trial that the:

Democrat Governor of Minnesota doesn't want
Democrat Mayor of Minneapolis doesn't want
Democrat Prosecutor of the County doesn't want


Trump must be laughing his ass off. The (Demonrats) just gave him an easy lay up
