  1. Mr. Blame, bloated lazy conman.

    • @Dave Salimeno Thank you once again for pointing out your personal demons and delusions.I would normally say “stay safe and healthy”, but why continue to burden the world with more flotsam.

    • Dave Salimeno I’m so tired of idiots thinking name calling is argument. I know you won’t read this but just in case. Calling everyone who is less conservative than you a communist says more about you that the person you’re talking to. There are millions of people in America who exists in the range from “conservative to liberal who despise communism just like you do.

    • @Von Dor Bravo.
      Mostly they “tag” someone with either commie, fascist or whatever the current boogeyman is for them.
      And yet they have ZERO idea as to what they mean.
      Example: “…the Fascist ANTIFA terrorist group.”
      Hunh ???
      Stay healthy and safe.

      @Von Dor If you cowards want someone to read your commie statement, put their name on it instead of hiding like a good little China puppet. To bad you’re not one of those so called liberal/conservatives. You’re just straight up communist.

    • Dave Salimeno | June 2, 2020 at 12:24 PM | Reply

      @Reg U Thank you once again for showing the country what you really are, a Anti-American racist communist pile. Move to who you support, China loves your kind.

  2. What we need is a drastic change in the way the police are trained, hired and self investigated!

    We dont need hope, we are tired of hoping we need actions.

      @II nosferatu II you do realize it was Chinatowns, Koreatowns and Japan towns and basically other asian communities that locked down stores and quarantine themselves first right?
      They’re the ones we took advice from In California.
      So yes its dangerous more to others than the youthful people who are protesting.
      Can’t say riot as that’s a barbaric 20th century word.

    • Raging Monk | June 2, 2020 at 4:15 PM | Reply

      Yeah because there are 328.2 million people in America. They have 10’s of millions of interactions with cops every year and yet there are very few cases of police brutality.
      Floyd which was on drugs, “fentanyl intoxication” and “recent methamphetamine use.” Resisted arrest in the back of a police car which spilled out on to the ground. Yeah he his a hero.
      Eric Garner survived the first 30 times he was arrested. But died of a fatal asthma attack because he wasn’t healthy enough to be a full time criminal.
      But ya wanna blame the cops. Okay, smfh

    • Her and other Democrats actions were arresting and fining people trying to open their businesses while telling the police bro stand down while criminals loot and burn them.

      Enough with the thoughts, hopes, prayers

    • I agree

  4. Frump couldn’t lead in single file if he was the only one there, let alone a country.

  5. Maybe Michigan Governor should have dominated all the protesters at the Stat Capitol or were they not thugs ?

  6. I’m glad she didn’t say thoughts and prayers

    They need to stop calling themselves leaders and remember that they are representatives of the people from the President down.

      @Dadson worldwide NYC and LA can send her 12,000 ‘peaceful protesters’ if she needs them. Just make sure to have plenty of sneakers and electronics on hand for them to loot.

    • Dadson worldwide I’m not sure what you’re saying here. We’ve been under stay at home order to slow the spread of COVID-19, which is set to fully expire June 12. We are following a re-opening plan. Yesterday restrictions on public gatherings were relaxed. Next week, restaurants can re-open their dining rooms, and smaller stores can resume in-store sales, whereas they were restricted to curbside pickup only.

      Covid-19 and the pandemic didn’t “just go away”. It’s still here and a very real concern. Protesters are not only risking their lives fighting to end systemic racism, they are also risking infection. They know the risks. That should tell you how much of a big deal this fight is. Risking infection of a potentially fatal disease to put an end to potentially fatal encounters with police.

    • Richard P or she lifted the order so her husband could get his boat launched. As serious as COVID 19 is, there are many ways to deal with it besides destroying the economy of a country, leaving the suppressed without income, causing major depression and wrecking families. ( yes, suicide and divorce have increased dramatically ). We’ve been through these epidemics before, without all of this.

    • AL CAPPS that rumor was being spread around Memorial Day weekend. If it were true, then why did she EXTEND the general stay at home order at that time?

      There were also rumors that she has a vacation house in the traverse city area, which is why some restrictions were lifted there first. Also not true. Restrictions were always set to lift there earlier than other regions in the state, because the level of infection there was lower that other areas, as outlined in the state’s re-opening plan.


    • Richard P her response to that “rumor”was he went to the vacation house to rake leaves, which she then recanted. It’s not all rumor.

    Start the trial of the 4 officers and the streets will calm right down.

    • Pepper Jane | June 2, 2020 at 4:23 PM | Reply

      90% of these riots and protests would have ended or been more peaceful if The Murdering Officers were arrested. The Nazi President and his Racist Republicans want a race war. 🔥🇺🇸

    • @Pepper Jane exactly!!! 👏👏👍👍

      @Pepper Jane What states have the latest curfews? The Media is loving every moment. I wonder whose team they are on.

      Execute the murderer and give the other 3 life in prison.

    • Erroneous Monk | June 2, 2020 at 5:45 PM | Reply

      Haha, nope. Shoot a few looters and things will calm right down. These people are cowards. They’re not brave protesters. They scurry around like rats talking tough until cops or soldiers show up then they scatter like roaches.

  9. yup, more unity at the riots spreading wuflu. remember how selfish the anti-lockdowners were? somehow protesters and rioters aren’t. hypocrites.

    • Mastodon1976 | June 2, 2020 at 12:41 PM | Reply

      These protests have a legitimate reason behind them. Anti-lockdown morons are just selfish babies

    • “Selfish” ? Awww did you get your little feelings hurt ?

    • Alex Ocasio-Gomez | June 2, 2020 at 12:45 PM | Reply

      @Mastodon1976 Did they explain that to the virus?

    • Alex Ocasio-Gomez | June 2, 2020 at 12:47 PM | Reply

      Flu has been around for years. Democrats jumped on a new strain to enact totalitarian socialist measures. Now that they have a violent communist uprising they don’t need the flu anymore.

  10. “When the mobs came, politicians abandoned us.”

    Gun control is dead.

      @Jeweled Bird go buy a gun in Alaska, then buy one in Massachusetts, and tell me the process is the same for the law abiding.

      @Alex Ocasio-Gomez I don’t know what you’re looking at, but I am seeing Proud Boys committing violent acts and running away, hoping that the peaceful protestors will be blamed for the violent acts of the Proud Boys.

    • Constituent A | June 3, 2020 at 11:05 PM | Reply

      @TheWin200000 Did someone deny you the right to purchase a gun in Massachusetts?

    • Alex Ocasio-Gomez | June 3, 2020 at 11:20 PM | Reply

      @Constituent A Too bad you are looking into your azzhole or you could post the video so we could all look at it.

      @Constituent A of course not, I don’t live there. I just picked a state with terrible gun laws, worse than California.

    All four of those police, standing there watching a man being murdered, should be behind bars.

  12. This woman desperately needs a vaccine against stupidity. Woman. Somebody was killed on the street in broad daylights. Covid 19 BS has to go.

  13. And shes still. Letting senior die. Cause shes putting covid patients. In there

    For a start arrest the other cops who did nothing in fact participated in this murder.

    I’m sick of unity and hope how about something is actually done?

      @D MP When you don’t flood your own nation with third-world migrants, “unity” is NEVER a problem. Just ask Japan.

      no justice, no peace / no chips and no cheese!!

    • remove trump and mussolini his azz for one…

    • @JORDAN PHOTO WORKS btw, when did your parents immigrate to the usa?

    • JORDAN PHOTO WORKS | June 3, 2020 at 9:54 AM | Reply

      @Doctor Buga My parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great-grandparents, AND great-great-great-grandparents were BORN IN THE USA. My family helped settle this nation and originally migrated from NW Europe… My family lineage goes back over 40,000 years. I am 99.9% NW European. Our DNA (A rare sub-group in the R1b1 group) formed the foundations of the Indo-European population. My mother descend from Helena, considered to be one of the seven daughters of Eve. Our name, derives from a Germanic War-God, named Teewaz (known as Tyr, in Norse circles). 35-40,000 years ago, we were known as “The Atlantic Men”. And at one time, the pretend “British” called us, “The Apocalypse”. Our DNA is scattered around a now sunken area once known as, “Doggerland” (Now the sea between the UK and Scandinavia). We would later conquer much of Britain, after the deluge, and settled there for quite some time in Warwickshire. (Home of Shakespeare, Aston Martin, etc.) We fought and won many battles, even leaving monuments that stand as a tribute to this day, across the British countryside. Looking at a “DNA-map”, our genetics very clearly once divided Great Britain in half, vertically, indicating our families dominance of the North Eastern area of the region. We are uncertain, but believe it was around the time of the Inquisition and Catholic persecution of Europe that our family came to America to start over. I understand that my families grounds were one of the last to fall, and that most fought to the death. We have a long line of military men in the family, here in America, as well. With Citadel and other military academy graduates. Furthermore, none of us ever owned slaves. In fact, my family has abhorred the practice for thousands of years. And, actively fought against slavery and all forms of tyranny and oppression, without rest. And, we are most certainly not done… What about your family?

  16. “WE HAVE TO DO BETTER” BS, forget better, we have to fix it.

  17. Why do governors live in mansions with personal chefs and armed security, all at taxpayer expense. While their constituents are lucky if they can afford rent for a studio apartment, are eating ramen noodles and living in crime infested neighborhoods.

  18. They all talk of unity and racism and don’t recognize their own hipocracy in their words and actions “twisted deceivers”

    Never trust a politician who never stops smiling. The Gretch is terribly rude to our legislature. She’s a daft fool.

    Why are the reporters asking negative, leading questions?
