    Seer, I have never claimed that preventing churches from being open was a good idea. In Denmark they quickly reopened with a social distance of around 6 feet per person. Now if the pastor was organizing an event and people were mushing together, then I can understand why the police broke it up.

    However, that was an intentional act. No one is organizing these protests, they happen. Unless they're scheduled in advance like a demonstration, all it is, is people rushing to the streets and being loud and angry about an injustice they experience in the world. That is a far more disorganized state.

    Oh please, is this one percent of the cops? Two percent?
    It seems they're all taking part in mopping up the protests. And they're all using violent means to do so.

    But yes I'll bite the bullet, these protests are more important than COVID-19 regulation.

    Do you have any idea how many cops 1% of cops is?! Geez Louise. If I told you 1% of cops were anti-theists who would go out of their way to ruin Christians you wild demand we root out every last one of them.

    Sheesh.

People saw this murderer telling Mr. Floyd to get up and get into the cruiser while his knee was on his neck and the other officers were on his back holding him down so that he couldn't get up if he wanted to. He lost consciousness and the officer continued to kneel on his neck for nearly another 3 minutes. That's first degree murder if you ask me, and had it not been recorded, chances are that it would have been swept under the rug.
    Jim you will always have cops doing stupid illegal things, they are human. But twice as many whites are killed a year as blacks, and I'm sure some of those are unjustifiable too, they just don't make the news.

    How many people are being injured during these riots? It's the worst possible time for the health care system to have to deal with this.

    I've brought this up a couple times in threads concerning the rioting over Floyd's death. The fact is that all these concerns get tossed onto the rubbish heap when it's a bunch of leftists involved. Just like the #MeToo movement had a stake run through its heart as soon as Creepy Joe became a target.

    We had 70 arrests last night but who wants to bet that nearly all of them will have their charges dropped like what always happens after this happens.

    Even if they spread the infection and cause more people to die? Why?

    Many of the same jurisdictions that released prisoners (including violent sex offenders) due to concern over their safety are also incarcerating folks for violating their social distancing/stay at home orders. But they are turning a blind eye to the rioters and looters who are also violating those rules while also committing actual crimes.

    That is what the problem is.

    As has been brought up numerous times (and ignored every time), multiple studies have revealed that a white person is considerably more likely to be killed in a confrontation with police than a black person is. The evidence for this is so strong that researchers are no longer trying to see if it is true and are now trying to determine why this is the case.

    I brought up the case in the first image in another thread

    In sharp contrast, the MSM is bending over backwards trying to minimize the violence and destruction during the riots over Floyd's death. No better example of this can be provided than senior economic correspondent for NBC, Ali Velshi, declaring on MSNBC while he is standing in front of a freaking building that was set afire, that "I want to be clear on how I characterize this. This is mostly a protest. It is not generally speaking unruly."

    Looks like someone is auditioning for the role of being the new Baghdad Bob.
