  1. Peace hasn’t been working for decades so what comes next, naturally this stop pretending

    • @Logan Saxby So, what you’re saying is, if grown up people don’t get parented, they are free to do whatever? Sounds about right…

      F: well ok maybe white people need to not knock peace as a thing. Calling black men who are scary is immature at best

    • Anne Liesveld | May 30, 2020 at 10:48 PM | Reply

      Ha! I’m White and I’ve seen that blown off for 15 years atleast. Nfl anyone????

    • @Anne Liesveld are you a racist? Because it sure comes across as a racist statement.

    • @ftobie84 there are actually many ways to solve things, who told you there’s only one way? The truth is that the protesters aren’t going to solve anything, peaceful or not.

  2. The George Covid riots, America makes history again.

    Did anyone say that when guns where at state capitals when protesters wanted to open up America again???????

  4. Katie Newborn | May 30, 2020 at 10:08 PM | Reply

    Is she threatening the people????

  5. When the cops show up ready to inflict violence on the protesters you need to be prepared! They tried peaceful demonstrations and were met with violence and leaned who to respond in kind!

      They weren’t met with violence. The police were like a cactus, sitting there with needles to fend off attackers. All it takes is a couple of idiots to turn a peaceful protest sour.

      @TheDrummingXbox360 LOL no, that is a lie. They began assaulting people. It’s on tape you putz.

  6. Its alright to carry at AR 15 at protests ,,no problem there right lady

    • voltaren yet they literally threatened the lives of ON DUTY POLICE OFFICERS gtfoh !

    • Disgusted Intennessee | May 30, 2020 at 10:25 PM | Reply

      voltaren They weren’t met with tear gas.

    • Cherry the Tart | May 30, 2020 at 10:27 PM | Reply

      @voltaren Yes they did. Erik Prince’s boys. Not protesters but mercenaries. You can pick them out of the crowd of genuine conscientious objectors by the high quality of their masks and the way they hold their guns. The folks getting arrested do not live in the cities they burn.

    • Cherry the Tart | May 30, 2020 at 10:29 PM | Reply

      @Zymir Well said. No guns at protests anymore. Time to treat guns like cars = you have to have a license to operate, register and insure every gun, even the guns of LEOs.

    • Yep, whataboutism. that helps.

    She must be kidding herself 🤨🤨🤨

    Support justice for George Floyd 🙏

    “As you press on for justice, be sure to move with dignity and discipline, using only the weapon of love. Let no man pull you so low as to hate him. Always avoid violence. If you succumb to the temptation of using violence in your struggle, unborn generations will be the recipients of a long and desolate night of bitterness, and your chief legacy to the future will be an endless reign of meaningless chaos.” Martin Luthor King Jr. (1956)

  10. 0:19 because you have failed them… for decades … you have no right to be angry…

  11. Nordstroms & Rayban 👓 were both just looted in Beverly Hills !

    I hate to remind her of this but the right-wing brings weapons every time they protest anything and that’s the only reason why the police don’t shoot them

  13. Remember that time people brought assault rifles to a governors mansion for a protest? We are talking about water bottles and shovels here? Wtf?

    Oh no, you’re….disappointed. I think people who are protesting and rioting are also disappointed in you Chicago political elites.

    She doesn’t have the right to say anything; her policies have enabled these things to happen.

  16. Mekaa Christopher | May 30, 2020 at 10:21 PM | Reply

    They need to vote her out

  17. I think Chicago is being pretty peaceful considering who they are and how they have been treated….

  18. This woman is absolutely fantastic.
    I’d love the chance just to talk to her.

  19. You should tell that to youre Chicago PD Lori Lightfoot…

    Theres a reason why millions of people dont trust police depts or the district attorney’s office.

    Imagine if these protesters hit the Streets like the Proud Boys in Michigan?
