    1. Using injustice to get justice on a false narrative is the farthest thing from “getting justice”. But, you do you

    1. @Gamingking ! I have 5 bucks on either “no reply” or “educate yourself, wayscist”. Lolol

    2. @Gamingking ! quit being angry and calm down.
      Go get some hobbies and do something else with your time

    3. The division in this country is too much. People need to sit down go find something else to do other than listen to politics all day. News is designed to make you angry that’s how they hold your attention.

  1. Jesus Christ saves from sin.
    Romans 3: 23
    For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
    Hebrews 9: 27
    And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
    Isaiah 64: 6
    But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
    Revelation 21: 8
    But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
    Romans 5: 8
    But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
    John 3: 16
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    John 14: 6
    Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
    Romans 10: 9-10.
    That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
    For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
    Jesus said John 5: 24
    Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
    1John 5: 10-13
    He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
    And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
    He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
    These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
    Ephesians 2: 8-9
    For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
    Not of works, lest any man should boast.
    Romans 8: 1
    There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
    1 Corinthians 15: 3-4
    For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
    And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
    2 Corinthians 5: 21
    For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

  2. Before some folks get their skivies in a knot it needs stating- whether Floyd was a felon or not he did not deserve the treatment leading to his death. With that said, there seems there’s more to this tragedy than has been exposed and looked into.

    Before the world demands a public crucifixion of Officer Chauvin perhaps a few questions should be asked. Questions related to the Officer and his department.

    Having had experience with PTSD one of the first thoughts crossing my mind after seeing numerous photos of Officer Chauvin was, ‘I can see it in his eyes, his face.’

    PTSD is an insidious condition caused by one or more traumatic firsthand events. About 20 to 30-percent of first responders are encumbered by this terrible condition.

    Individuals with severe cases of PTSD have, in some instances, done some pretty bad things.

    I’m aware of another police officer who went off normalcy and almost beat a suspected felon to death. He too was brought to trial.

    A police officers job is really rough and does cause mental harm to them in varying degrees. Just think about what they are exposed to on a weekly or monthly basis. Everything from vehicle accidents to rape to armed robbery to murder to domestic violence, etc., etc. All critical, abnormal, life events. Eventually the abnormal switches with the normal and the individual ends up a bit of a mess.

    With the above said I’d like to ask a few questions:

    1. How many years did Officer Chauvin serve as a line/beat policeman?

    2. How many critical incidents was Officer involved in during his career? How many were severe and/or involved violence he either had to investigate or was involved in?

    3. After the most critical of the incidents how often did Officer get “debriefed” by a department psychologist- or a contract psychologist?

    4. Did any of the police departments Officer Chauvin served in have a critical incident debriefing program for its officers? Many do not to this day.

    If blame for Mr. Floyd’s death is to be fixed, it should be shared by Officer Chauvins department if they do not have a formal critical incident debriefing program. If so: Shame on them! They used Officer Chauvin as a disposable human resource.

    There’s a chance Officer Chauvin has severe chronic PTSD. This MUST BE looked into. This miserable condition can cause many good people to do sone very nasty things.

    Please think about this, our society has a lot of violence that a small percentage of men and women gave to deal with. It DOES change them and not for the better.

    All police departments need to have a mandatory critical incident debriefing program. To ignore this problem only enables more totally inappropriate behavior on the part of a first responder.

  3. There’s a good chance Officer Chauvin has PTSD. If so, and his department does not have a critical incident debriefing program, it is as guilty in this matter as folks want Officer Chauvin to be.
