    STUPID QUESTION ABOUT PRESIDENT OBAMA.!!

    • Celtic Whisper | May 29, 2020 at 4:17 AM | Reply

      Was that the same Obama that ordered the dropping of bombs and drones on the people of the Middle East killing countless souls?

    • @Celtic Whisper the same obama who allowed Eric Holder to send thousands of cases of fully automatic firearms to mexican cartels?

      The same obama who drone strikes an american citizen in yemen?

      @melanieenmats If that’s what it takes to bring about lasting positive change, then yes, Jefferson would have supported any form of civil disobedience to that end. Remember the Boston Tea Party? Please explain the difference.

      @American Paisa. Spare us the crocodile tears, please. Like you’re concerned about the welfare of “the Blacks.” You’re not fooling anybody. BTW, it is very clear that there are numerous white folks participating in these activities. Why do you choose to overlook this fact? Nevermind, no need for you to answer, we know why.

    Kneeling during the National Anthem was a peaceful approach at directing attention to this very real problem.People turned it into a disrespectful act. Now people are more disgusted with the ongoing disrespect of human life. Violence is what people turn to when their voices are not heard!

      When HK protesters were burning down the city, Republicans said it was their right as “oppressed peaceful students”; Now, what will they say about the “peaceful students” of Minneapolis copying the same model of “peaceful protests” against the murdering of innocent black people by the United States public forces?

      @John Zappulla Your argument made it very clear to everyone, who is the one who doesn’t have reasoning skills.

    • @TheMrVengeance yeah ok just so burning buildings down and be civil

    • Diane O'Donovan | May 29, 2020 at 8:36 AM | Reply

      @als I think he has decided the police can’t be trusted. The demonstrators also need protection, and outside witnesses in case the cops start shooting into the crowd. They know that could happen, otherwise.

    • TheMrVengeance | May 29, 2020 at 8:39 AM | Reply

      @TsGhosty – When do I ever say that’s okay?

    • Oh, were you right! Woke up to the news talking about Trump’s tweet threatening to “shoot” these “THUGS”. Yet Trump supported and called White people storming the Capitol in Michigan with their AR’s “patriots”. Unreal. And people wonder why they think Trump is a racist?!

    “And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? … It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity.”

      John Zappulla we have had our share of riots to, Brixton in London, Bristol, so I don’t think you own it, but the number of white people in America calling the cops has got out of hand ,and your president incites this behaviour, are you tired of winning yet!

    I already asked myself the Obama question as well, nope not gonna fix this problem. This is years of bad police treatment, and unfair treatment toward the African American community that is unleashing its pain all at once. I dont know if arresting 4 men is going to solve the overall problem, but it sure would help restore peace.

    Does this remind anyone of the LA riots back in 1992 after what happened to Rodney King?

  13. Hongkong supports these FREEDOM FIGHTERS!……Free Minneapolis now !!!!!

      When HK protesters were burning down the city, Republicans said it was their right as “oppressed peaceful students”; that, at that moment, was the clear message of the US government about how people had to react to “state abuse”. Now, what will they say about the “peaceful students” of Minneapolis copying the same model of “peaceful protests” against the murdering of innocent black people by the United States public forces?
      STANT AGAINST US OPPRESSIVE AND TYRANNIC GOVERNMENT! Chinese people out of China are demanding: Free North America from their tyrants! The Chinese Communist Party is with you, oppressed US citizens!

    I didn’t see men in riot gear when protests took place in the Michigan Capital with armed white men

    • Hans Otto Kroeger | May 29, 2020 at 3:51 PM | Reply

      @Siddhartha Shandilya In Hongkong and in Venezuela, Molotov cocktails have been thrown around, and even so, the US government applauded and supported the riots. So, if people in the US start to do exactly the same things the US approved and supported to be done in Hongkong, and in Venezuela, they only are harvesting what they planted!

    • Siddhartha Shandilya | May 29, 2020 at 4:06 PM | Reply

      @Hans Otto Kroeger how is it related to this incident? The question was about deploying law enforcement against rioting.

    • Hans Otto Kroeger | May 29, 2020 at 5:04 PM | Reply

      @Siddhartha Shandilya You said it: “Deploying law enforcement against rioting”.
      Exactly that was what happened when the US government promoted riots, arsenic and burnings (ca. 25 individuals have been burned alive by the rioters) in Venezuela.
      http://www.cubadebate.cu/noticias/2017/07/22/la-oposicion-ha-quemado-vivas-al-menos-23-personas-en-venezuela/
      Exactly the same happened as the US government supported rioters and their vandalism, arenic and destruction in Hongkong.
      You said it: ” The question was about deploying law enforcement against rioting.”
      And when a government gives approval to riots, there will be a time in which the same government who applauds rioting in foreign countries will have to deal whit the same in their own country – and when that happens, they won’t have any credible argument for condemning what the same authorities applauded and supported openly only a year earlier! So, take your own medicine, because you need it! Perhaps in this way, you will learn to respect foreign nations, their reight to a sovereign government, and peace in between their frontiers, without the war-mongering US promoting riots, vandalism, and destruction!

    • Christine Hathaway-Coley | May 29, 2020 at 7:50 PM | Reply

      Probably because those who have to wear riot gear in their day jobs would probably prefer to be with the armed white men on their days off…

    • @Nancy M Ross I agree. I just haven’t had the time to fact check it myself. I put that there for only that reason. It looks legit.

    He nails it pointing out the false choice between two extremes given by police: Violence against peaceful protests or no policing at all! Neither is acceptable. I suspect the police do this on purpose to agitate people to create propaganda.
    We need both the Malcolm and the Martin right now not agent orange pouring gasoline on the fire as the soul of the nation burns.
