    • So the nation of Islam is to blame?..

      @American Yeah I know it wasn’t Trump people, I was being sarcastic. And I wasn’t blaming the Nation of Islam.

    • @Dog Poo Fairy This is strange… the media is praising a cop and also not called angry white supremacist on the perpetrator before any investigation? There must be something wrong

    • Dog Poo Fairy | April 2, 2021 at 6:23 PM | Reply

      @Joe Casella they probably wished they knew he was a Muslim earlier so they can call the Muslim yet another victim of an execution by a white supremacist cop. Then blame the hateful rhetoric of Trump etc etc.

      The man who rammed a car into Capitol Police officers, killing one, has been identified as Noah Green. Green was armed with a large blade when he was shot dead. On social media, he identified as a follower of the black nationalist Nation of Islam movement.

      @Brother Love ?? A life is a life man, and last I checked, Derek Chauvin isn’t Billy Evans? He can care about both. The police force isn’t composed of lunatics and all lives should be equally important….

    • Stephan Sir Ois | April 2, 2021 at 6:32 PM | Reply

      @Luc Handfield all pigs should die. Anyone who’s upset over this pigs death should be sent to a “re-education” camp.

      @Luc Handfield Wrong Luc. Black lives matter more because they have been oppressed. That is how it works now, fool.. Get used to it. Black Lives matter more…

      @Purple Fanta keep thinking everyone you don’t agree with is mainstream media, you sound like a child grasping at straws. It’s only a matter of time before your beloved america is in ruins and i will be dancing on its grave.

      @Stephan Sir Ois There are a whole list of possibilities you failed to consider.
      That is a very narrow mind and narrow view you are working with there.

      So many assumptions…all so wrong.

      The USA is not a civilized country. Your country has gone completely insane. Trump did this to you.

    This should have NEVER happened! I am very sorry that Mr William Evans won’t go back home tonight to his family. My heart breaks….

    He got up, got dressed and went to work, not knowing it was his “last” day of this seemingly mundane routine. The simple things we all take for granted at times, can be the most needed desire in the end… Anyone of us can be snatched away at any given moment. 😢💔

    On the other side —— Grief is a long gut-wrenching journey. It takes a lot to recover from this… family members only see the human essence and not the uniform. The rest of us sees the uniform and not the human. I wish we all could see BOTH and help the word to see things from a more compassionate perspective. 🌺💔💙🌺

    • Beautifully said 💕

    • Pure Drops Of Healing | April 2, 2021 at 7:26 PM | Reply

      @Jenny Gater it’s heartbreaking, I love human beings. As complicated as we are, the “human thread” runs through us all… I’m sending love for his family and I’m praying for the other officer to pull through as well 💕

    • Light Source | April 2, 2021 at 7:28 PM | Reply

      MSNBC, Democrats and CNN taught people to hate the police and to defund them. So crazy how the man protecting Democrats was killed while they defunded him.

      You’re a kind soul, Pure Drops.

    • Pure Drops Of Healing | April 2, 2021 at 8:01 PM | Reply

      @Anacapri Tropics you’re very kind for saying it. I don’t know how to be anyone else. I have had my own woes, so I can understand pain to a certain extent.

      However, I think when humans are divided by race, politics, news headlines from a collage of various news networks, and hashtags from social media, we’ve somehow gotten lost and desensitized towards hurt and pain. We have lost the simple ability to be able to “feel for someone else” —- empathy is now like a useless doormat. I hurt when humans hurt. I kept thinking of Willam be hurled in the air by a speeding car, I can just imagine the fright as he was losing consciousness! Unfortunately, so many other things has happened as well, in which I “FEEL” for humans and I am so desperate for us to develop some kind of compassion for each other! 💔❤️
