    The looters aren’t protesters, the looters are simply criminals who see a opportunity.

      @Jennifer Dangerfield Charlottesville? ‘The Jews will not replace us’ ? Tiki torch rallies? Where you been hiding?

      Most looters probably are just criminals. But there is one aspect that you should not overlook. Most if not all of the problems in the US are caused by it’s utterly materialistic attitude. Property is maybe not the only value, but certainly the most important value in the US. The more you analyse the many problems, the more you see that they are caused, preserved or amplified because relevant parties benefit economically from these problems. The few exceptions are about power but that is easily convertible into wealth.

      If you have no wealth to defend, you are utterly disenfrenchised from the benefits of US society. In the US there is no equality without means.

      If you look at it from this angle, a shop represents just a different side of the same enemy. The looters do not identify with shop owners or assurance companies as part of their society, because they don’t see them as such, whether they are looting or not.

      Criminals would loot a shop if they find an opportunity. On the other hand, not every looter is necessarily a criminal. The difference would be that they are pushed so far out of the society that they simply don’t accept their rules as binding. If Trump and murderous police officers are not bound by rules, why should they be? If the department of justice defends and protects criminals and rejects to label them as such, how can you apply the label “criminal” in any meaningful way.

      The police union declares that they will defend the jobs of the four police officers who killed George Floyd. I am aware of the value and necessity of procedures in jurisdiction. But in this case these officers are obviously murderers. If the police union defends their jobs, that means that for them a murderer is not a criminal.

      Considering this, I cannot agree that looters can be called “simply criminals”. Or if that applies, the majority of institutions in the US are part or organised crime. Then again, criminality is a career path and nothing to be concerned about.

      I. don’t defend looters, I don’t believe that they are helping the cause of the majority of protesters. But in the grand scheme of things, this is a minor aspect of this process that does not deserve the amount of attention it receives. The real criminals are not those looting shops. They are just anecdotes of history, not especially creative or rare.

      To be fair its already been proven that a huge portion of looters, are white supremacists setting up fake accounts
      on place like twitter to set up attacks.
      we know this because the dumbasses that were doing it used the same email address for the fake account as their much older ws account
      it’s legit laughable people are being so easily fooled by people that dumb XD

  3. She could’ve gotten hurt.. kudos to her ✊🏽

  4. This young woman is what it’s all about. Hats off to you, sister! That’s the type of country we have to strive to build. An example of pure and brave humanity! There’s hope, friends.

      This white girl was naiv. Stay away from such kind of people dont think by yourself you can play white authority they will smash you because they have enough of white people telling them what is right and what wrong, whites done alot wrong to be in this position

      Are you with me? I say we continue like this till election day and remove this guy or the pentagon needs to immediately intervene, arrest Trump and depose him – it will be a first in our history and a great, needed lesson. I am not happy with this amount of violence or protests, it’s too little for me, what is burning a Target or a few stores? I need two or three policemen DEAD, failing to do that, Trump needs to be taken hostage or the white house besieged! I will accept NO less as an equalizer for George Floyd’s death. Take this mothafoka hostage or besiege the white house, let him hide in the bunker like the coward he is.

    Cops not turning on their body cameras? Golly, who would have thunk it?

  7. The cops in Kentucky are choosing to turn off their body cameras?!! That’s absolutely outrageous.

  8. I am becoming increasingly convinced that
    magaminions are being deployed by the white supremacist-neonazi organizations
    to foment and instigate looting and destruction…
    this is and has always been a tactic of the right
    with the sole intention of deceiving and misleading the passive public

      No, if you watch the video clearly you can see the second guy has a lighter/ not black skin colour
      To be clear blacks and whites are protesting peacefully for the police system to change, however, there are always bad people who use good causes to do dirty deeds. Do not blame Black Lives Matter for these people blame that ruin the entire movement.

      @Anglo …intercepted white supremacy groups acting as ANTIFA. Common strategy.

      That guy was sent ans dressed as what people call in frogger gear in order to blame the Protesters. It’s why they(men and women) are sent in dressed in all black with their faces covered to purposefully cause disconstruction which will be blamed on the original Protestors.

    • @Robo Gamer 4 Absolutely. And, I’d say it only 1% or less who are looting and burning. There are HUNDREDS of peaceful demonstrations across the country and the world, but I guess a l ot of the media thinks that it’s too “boring” to cover those.

      That “looter” was most likely a cop.

    We ARE going to transform this nation. The racists may have guns, but we overwhelmingly outnumber them. Their days are numbered.

  12. trump and Barr have been looking for a way to rally ‘his troops’. The thugs he’s hired are his ‘justification’ for the ‘ dominate ‘ talk.

  13. Jeanette Andersson | June 2, 2020 at 7:15 PM | Reply

    The current inhabitant of the WH was “heroically” hiding in its basement, and turning off the lights(no one’s home…)
    all while sprouting lies, hate and divisiveness as usual on Twitter!!!

    Yelling about domination to the governors, like the BIGLY bully he is, and then returning to “his” basement all while ridiculing Joe Biden for doing the same, but for different reasons.

    That’s what this very “brave” draft dodger-in-Chief does bestest.

    They should fire every officer who doesn’t have their body cameras on, period. First time. No excuses.

  15. Someone needs to locate that brave young lady..she is a standout hero among weak men..including trump ✌💖😊

      @William Money I find that really offensive! I think u r racist to even think of that question. BTW his white hands were very evident.

      @HenryDavidT is this a serious question? Obviously this woman is tougher than trump and trump sheep, what she did was courageous it’s too bad it doesn’t happen more often like when a cop is “over doing it”. Let me be perfectly clear with you, I think this woman is obviously a strong person and brave. I was merely asking someone a question to clarify their own remark. Peace

      @Elizabeth Wallace I hope you are right and I’ve been saying/thinking the same for the last couple months. You are a very easy person to communicate with and a pleasure. Thank you.

    It’s amazing how Republicans brag about states rights until they want to be dictators ,it’s the same with abortion pretend to be for the life of the child until that child is is born and then they want nothing to do with it, and want to cut off everything that mother needs to take care of the child. The truth is the whole thing is about control over others.

    *The looters aren’t protesters, the looters are simply criminals who see a opportunity.*

    • These looters (3 guys at the beginning of the video) are agent provocateurs. Either cops, or alt-right Trump supporters who are being sent it to cause chaos so that the Trump admin can seize more power and completely turn this country into an authoritarian dictatorship.

    • sally Ozuna | June 4, 2020 at 8:38 AM | Reply

      and probably pro Trump.
      In San Antonio after an all day peaceful protest, at dusk others started vandalizing.
      Our Police Chief and Mayor at their first statement to the city, said the looters were from out-of-towners and white.

    Wow she was brave had a pair.  Love her spirit. We need a couple of MILLION more like her.

    • That’s how MOST of the protesters are.

    • Xman if most protesters were like that, there would be no looting. However, I can understand them. She could be killed. I would be seriously angry at her, if she was my daughter. As she isn’t, I’m just proud of her.she’s very brave and knows what’s right. Kudos!

      Devon Benart can you be more specific ? Who is the basement dweller. I am getting confused m, sir. Trump shoved his entire family out of the way, before dimming the lights, to get down under. Yep, old basement dweller, tRUMP, is a coward. America is without a President. Donald spent tine running to churches for photo ops without even calling ahead and gassed his citizens before heading out. That narcissistic coward is out. Period
