    Arresting and indicting those officers today would be a good start.

  2. We tried that with Black Wall Street and the ancestors of these same white supremacist race soldiers burned it down. You don’t build anything without first neutralizing potential threats, so address that dilemma by any means necessary.

    What about the undercover cop Jacob Peterson who started the riots in the first place?

    Don’t destroy your own city. Small businesses cannot afford this right now.

  5. Great message! Thank you for that interview

  6. I do not advocate violence but I understand the rage that fuels it. Torching the precinct building the 4 officers worked out of is a very loud and succinct message. I hope Minneapolis got that message. I hope every police department in the country got the message before it happens in their city. Enough is enough and the citizens of this country are fed up with the racism and senseless death.

      Torching a police building effects local police response time. I hope every looter gets arrested. They disrespect his death.

    1889…UP THE BLADES…1889

  10. ” Sovereign is who decides on the state of emergency ”
    because in a democracy, the sovereign is above everything. you don’t need soldiers, you just need justice, that’s what the people want.
    the government must show the sovereign that they are serious about fighting racism.
    or do you not live in a democracy in America ?

  11. The longer they drag there feet on making an arrest, the more community unrest there will be. It’s really simple, lock up these ex-cops and watch the community unrest calm down to observe the legal fight.

    sometimes in order to build a ‘stronger future’ you have to raze to the ground those things which have been denying that future possibility; and sometimes the harsh reality is there really is NO other way. destruction is everywhere displayed in the cosmos we humans inhabit, it’s visible in the night sky and it’s visible in this pandemic – and it’s visible in the corruption o’ our cherished institutions here in america…

    I’m sorry how do you build a community children when their fathers are being slain on live TV.

  14. I really do hate to say it, I honestly dont want it to happen or continue and if anyone does read this then please dont do it and continue the violence. Innocent people are having their livelihoods burnt down to the ground, it makes the community unsafe, it sets back community relations. That being said it seems as if this kind of pressure is the only way to get officials attention to actually do something. Something I heard from one of the videos…. a guy said something along the lines of… we tried to tell them peacefully, we tried taking a knee and it didnt work, if this is what it takes then they will continue every day until law enforcement changes and stops brutalising ethnic minorities and transparently deal with bad cops.
    I am white and I can empathise with them, they feel as if they are being worse than ignored. I get it, I really do and I can see that only when things like this happen do governments actually sit up and take stock because it then affects them…. it impacts on their ability to govern, it threatens their positions in office if things dont change. I have no answer for how to pressure real change without resorting to such violence that is destroying hardworking innocent peoples lives. I wish and pray with every fiber of my being that the violence and destruction stops but at the same time I am praying just as much that the pressure felt by officials from the community’s anger doesn’t get lifted from officials because it will get washed under the carpet and society moves on to another issue.

    Can somebody please explain to me how destroying innocent peoples property makes what happened to George Floyd better ? How does looting an innocent store owner make things right ? How does burning down buildings make anything right ? How come there can’t be peaceful protest ? What gives protesters the right to do as they please ? How does any of this make anything better ?

    Oh, I wish you could interview Amy Sherald whom you interviewed just before George Floyd was killed.

    Mr. Melvin Carter, your comments were really helpful.

    We need more Mayor like him!

  20. “Due process” was violated.
    The cops can appeal and get off scott free.
    Way to go.
