On Monday, in Washington D.C., demonstrators were cleared from an area around a park near the White House in a show of force by authorities to clear a path for President Trump and advisors to have a photo opportunity from an historic church on Lafayette Square.

Minneapolis and other U.S. cities brace for more heated demonstrations after protesters and police across the nation continue to clash in the wake of George Floyd's death.

  1. Breaking news MSM morons: looting, stealing and committing arson is actually RIOTING.🖕🏻

    • @robert williams don’t twist my words. I said peaceful protest accomplish nothing. Maybe it’s better to write your congressman lol
      I don’t think there’s anything wrong with a little civil disobedience under the circumstances however killing and beating people is definitely not ok.

    • The Amnesty International are guilty of failure to provide assistance. You have to prepare people so that they are ready and capable of at least fighting back the police. You can’t allow people to think that they are safe if they protest peacefully, knowing that the white supremacists have infiltrated the police force and are now feeling authorized to kill in public. Colored Americans in the Army and in the Police force should not feel obliged to obey oaths taken assuming that the commander in chief would be a rational person. People of color in the Army and Police force should be the ones to stop the likes of Trump now. Overthrow such insane commander in chief. Rational people in the secret service are the ones to stop insane leaders. If you took oath to protect the president, you took that oath to protect the citizens whom the president took an oath to protect. You cannot kill citizens because you are protecting an insane president.

      @Eric Agot People like you are the damn problem. I wonder how long you Dems plan on playing into the Russians hands. First Donald Trump was a Russian agent, then a dictator, then now he’s responsible for natural disasters. You people keep on moving the goal post while using fabricated evidence to get your way. Yet Still Orange man bad. He’s not the one supporting the riots. Keep on destroying the country, we will try and rebuild like the hard working citizens we are.

    • I love virtue signaling from MSM…because I don’t have a brain that can think for itself.

      King Midas every place people have stolen other people’s cultural ideas for years through art literature and music but people cry about it yet you still buy made in China guaranteed 🥱😅🤣

    • There are no white people getting killed on tv by cops because cops don’t do this to white people. The worst a white person can get is an a struggle on the ground. Think about for a second, how many blacks have been killed or abused by white officers or officers period OFF CAMERA we all seen the clip if George Floyd was a white man he would’ve been in the car already with no harm done

    The police officers guilty of this crime should and will be punished for there crimes. And last time I checked, ex cops are not popular in prisons and are at risk 24/7 to be killed.
    HOWEVER, starting darn riots, destroying public tax paid property and private property is NOT okay. Destroying private buisnesses and ruin families lifes is NOT okay.
    Stealing and plunder is NOT okay. How, just HOW is this justified by the murder of one person? How is the death of George Floyd equal to destroy an entire city and steal stuff and even thret to kill people out loud for someones skin color? NON of that is okay. BLM is a violent organisation filled with hate, racism and ignorance.

    African Americans who own stores and restaurants have gotten there livehood and lifes totaly ruined by these actions. How and why are they attacked if this is a “race” thing?
    BLM don’t care for anything unless its suits there own hate filled agendas.

    • robert williams and more black people have been treated wrongly by police officers.

    • Wario's Gold Coin | June 4, 2020 at 1:44 PM | Reply

      @Jenna Baily Mabey so and that is always wrong when authorities treat ANY people wrong. We all have both rights and duties. Starting destructive riots, hurtin innocent people, ruin private buisnesses and raising race related conflicts is not okay.

      That will never be accepted. Especally it is heavily vironic when African AMerican buisness owners have gotten there stores and buisnesses totaly ruined by BLM supporters…how is that related to anything near the crime of George Floyd? NOTHING.

      @Birb Crosser – Riots are making peoples living even more strained as it is. It wont solve anything. And all the violance against innocent people bystandards? How is that hustified by the BLM? It is NOT.

    Wtf is wrong with these comments? If you can’t see why people are doing this even in a PANDEMIC, then you are part of the problem! The fact people have to risk not social distancing yourself create a SAFE COUNTRY should disgust you. Not those people.

  18. Floyd couldn’t breathe, because he had a virus and this brave policeman only helped him. I see him as hero.

  19. This people are protesting and still are unaware they have been thoroughly manipulated. Floyd did not deserve to die the way he did, however there is a cover up amiss (as Sherlock Holmes would say…”Something is amiss.”).

    How about the others during the riots who died at the hands of the rioters? Where is justice for those people?

    Why is the media not showing the real truth about the statistics about who is killing who?🤔
