      @revisionfour You didn’t ask me, but I did my undergraduate work on a full merit scholarship from CWRU, earned a Master of Science degree in Mathematics from FAU, and have an Erdos number of 1. I probably out-credential you. My body is old and gnarly from scoliosis acquired late in life, and I have long since given away my money to the poor. Not a doubt in my mind that you have a better body than I do, and I dare say the 41 million newly unemployed Americans probably have more money than I do, but it takes neither looks nor money to comprehend what he meant when he told police officers not to be so ‘nice’ to suspects in custody. You’re the damned fool if you will vote for this clown again.

      Tessmage Tessera every single person I know and do business with. Not a single person is a democrat anymore. Huge numbers; and all of them said the same thing. The democrats are demon possessed. They will have nothing more to do with them ever again. That’s the truth.
      I personally just think y’all are nasty, and that’s good enough for me.

      @David Hatchell Nope, that’s hearsay and crazy talk. So you don’t have any numbers, then. What a surprise. Trump is finished, kid. It’s all over. After we kick him out of the White House, he’s going to prison. We’ll see you in November, for the biggest blue wave in history.

    Officers guarding the storefronts. Well, there is nothing left!!!!!!! By God, give me a break. Police should have been before looting to prevent such action.

    • cynthia chang | May 31, 2020 at 7:38 PM | Reply


    • That’s a lot of police to stand guard at every store, as they would have had no idea where the people were going loot.

    • Pierre Bibeau | May 31, 2020 at 10:35 PM | Reply

      @Dam ury I do not understand. I would have police in civilian clothing with protesters, hence insiders, have video taken of looting and inform HQ in order for them to arrive with arms and vehicles and restore order. An arrest could be made at a later date but they would have proof in hand for court trials. It is a known tactic in the police, so why not do it?

      Agreed that the loss of his and others lives is unacceptable.  But, even if a trial was held right now,  these people who aren’t honoring his life are going to destroy THOUSANDS of other peoples lives.   These businesses which are peoples lives will never be able to recover and don’t give me some BS that they’ve got insurance, there’s no insurance to cover this.

    There are protesters and there are thieves that have place themselves among legitimate protestors. They have always stolen in this way. It gives legitimate protesters a bad name. I encourage the protesters not to protect these thugs. Don’t get cover for these criminals. And don’t lose the right to protest behind looters and thugs looking for an opportunity. They don’t care about you! You’re just an alibi, that’s all.

    • Maxine McLeod As of now democrats are the clear criminals, the countries they have the major control of are poverty struck with extreme homelessness and they don’t really want to change it, oh and supporting babies getting killed when out of the womb.

      @Zl .z That is completely false. Your narrative is false. Exactly where are you getting the idea is an unforgivable sin? State your source. If you claim it’s the bible, give me book chapter and verse. Post your source please. You don’t know what you’re talking about! stop listening to other people tell you what to believe! If your mind is closed don’t bother. You can’t defend the undefenseable.

      @William H Music 2020 I would bet the “Green Party” Liberals were doing the peaceful protests and the clean up. They are not THUGS, they care about equality, people and the planet. The Republicans are the corrupt thieves in America. Lie, cheat, steal, blame others and cover up is their motto.

    • Tessmage Tessera | May 31, 2020 at 9:58 PM | Reply

      Your assessment of looting and vandalism is an oversimplification. You need to put yourself in the moment. People who feel furiously angry often go overboard. For example, how many times have you gotten furious, picked up a nearby object like a drinking glass, or an ashtray, and thrown it against the wall..? And when it broke, you felt bad afterward… but when you were IN THE MOMENT, regret was the last thing on your mind. You only knew that you were angry and you wanted to hurt something. Same principle here with the rioters.

    • Maxine McLeod | May 31, 2020 at 10:46 PM | Reply

      @Tessmage Tessera I know they’re angry and I understand why. They aren’t all robbing and looting. Only those with that mind set do that. You can’t paint the entire group of protestors with that brush. There’s nothing wrong with being angry. How you use that anger is the issue. Most of those people were legitimately protesting. The others took advantage of an opportunity to be violent. How many times has this been done? The outcome is still the same. Those that come looking for violence will find it. They are the ones that splinter off from the main group and look for destructive ways of doing things. As far as I’m concerned they give protestors a bad name. Especially when my people protest. That anger damages the whole group and it gives justifications for hurting us and killing us. Because that is what happens. You can not destroy a system or change a system with violence. It is the main reason Martin Luther king was so successful. He was organized and many discussions took place before the 1st protest ever happened. You don’t think they were angry? They had to talk that thru! Yes they were angry but there purpose was bigger than their anger. Anger has to be directed appropriately, you don’t directed and it will go awry. Then my people are getting jailed, shot, and killed. And the cycle repeats itself. We learn nothing when we act on our impulses. I am tired of seeing our people buried. This rioting and looting is not working for us! You want lasting change? Then we need a different strategy. That’s what I’m saying. Excusing out of controlled anger is our down fall. No one will listen to you like that. If my kids did that at home, they’d be punished. Use your words. I can’t hear you when you’re shouting at me. That’s what the establishment is saying. Why don’t we start using our heads. They might not like it but they have to respect it. You can’t fight a system with violence. Systems are designed to be approached with intent. Videos of bad cops doing wrong, video of police being called for being black in the park works. The more people see these videos the more they understand what we’re dealing with. The reason MLK was so successful in his plan is because a peaceful protest went viral on national television and people were appalled at what they saw. They saw human being being brutalized and at once it was wrong, and they didn’t stop there.That’s how a movement is born! Looters are common criminals that attach themselves to protesters for the purpose of doing violence. They have been doing this for as long as I can remember. Criminal know how to disappear, so police catch the legit protester and harm him because he was in the vicinity.

    I find it kinda funny really. The last couple of days I’ve seen overwhelming support of the violence and the looters in the comments. Their anger has to be heard, etc, etc, and now all of a sudden I’m seeing a sharp U turn after the officer who committed this murder got arrested and the majority of comments here are ‘arrest the looters’, ‘violence doesn’t solve anything’, etc, etc. I get that now the focal point of the outrage has been dealt with people no longer think people should be rioting, but the fact is rioting and looting does not get the point across, not these days. The video footage did that all on it’s own. The looters and the people out looking for a fight don’t give a f**k about the poor man who died, they are simply taking advantage of the situation.

  17. Obviously, in Philadelphia, there’s no requirement that the police be in good physical shape, and that necessarily reflects on their mental state. Yes, oppressed, poor people will loot stores. Rich people do their looting where it’s acceptably legislated in their staid halls of municipal government.

  18. Saddest part is the media is very well aware that there are people sent to incite these riots and more times than less start it, then make it seem as if people just lost their mind and decided to start robbing.


    • Narcissist Vector | May 31, 2020 at 10:45 PM | Reply

      I was thinking the same, who knows who instigators could be, in a mob mentality everything goes out the window and turns to chaos. Chaos is not effective in any situation.
