  1. Breonna was shot EIGHT times in her OWN home while she was ASLEEP. They need to do more than ban chokeholds and get rid of the ‘no-knock’ policy. They need to address gun control.

    • Mark bodman, trying to explain this to a trump lover is waste of time.

    • @Beatrice Asarte Man go on. So you basically wanted it to be more than 9 or you need it to be? It’s 9. And it’s more white people than 9. And all 9 are accidental or dealing with a very uncooperative criminal suspect. We need to blast Christian music at CHAZ and warn them that the 101st airborne will be used. You don’t like authority git your sorry but out of my culture and country.

    • Shut up, you aren’t making it where I can’t defend myself get real. You live in a blue state I live in Texas, nobody is going to mess with me and our crime rate is almost nothing compared to yours I’m positive. You know why? Because if you mess with someone like me and you threaten me or my kids or wife or land or personal property in any threatening way that I can prove was life threatening, I’ll walk baby, you won’t na more. !! So guess what, my community in Texas of 20k is very very safe , yours I’m sure has tons of gun control and the bad guys don’t care and have tons of guns. And if they didn’t have guns they would have knives. Get real and find a real man.

      @J Batson I pointing out statistics that are made by Police are not to be trusted at all.

  2. I mean why do they need the choke hold or the knee on a neck or no knock warrants, they have guns, tasers and batons. What’s with this deadly force crap?

    • Patrick Pee what about the Asian and the black cop?

    • “stop murdering folks”
      ^ doesn’t seem that difficult … except for police (who seem extraordinarily scared all the time)

    • Paavo Bergmann | June 13, 2020 at 9:25 PM | Reply

      ​ @Ray Lovelace I agree. But I see the unbelievable militarisation in both gear and training as a consequence of so many guns around, that any situation can quickly develop into a major shootout. Being trained (as they have to under the circumstances) as if everyone around is always carrying and potentially hostile, is guaranteed to make them more scared, jumpy, and hence prone to violence, to resolve any situation, real or perceived (!), as quickly as possible.
      Also, it breeds the urge to always immediately prove to everyone, they are the top dog, to dominate every encounter. Cops in other countries have the luxury of probing if a situation actually escalates. Throw in a couple of unstable, murderous, racist authoritarian wackos, and fanatic group-thinking and pack loyalty, and, well…

    • Paavo Bergmann | June 13, 2020 at 9:27 PM | Reply

      @Robert like what in Seattle?

    • Ray Lovelace I do not think this word means what you think it means. Like when you have to have so many people of a particular race employed at your business or you will be fined or kept from lucrative contracts? Or maybe if your college doesn’t have a particular gender or race in a class then that race or gender can take it for free? Or maybe when you talk to a person of different race you are called an Uncle Tom or not black enough, trying to be white. Or maybe you can’t get food stamps you aren’t the right color. I have heard and seen all that. SO, No miss me with that noise.

    I’m very glad to know that the protests are going to keep going while they are making a change, SAY IT LOUDER FOR THE PEOPLE AT HOME! #BLM

    • to me ” All lives matter” I give no special value over any including my own. To think different is definition of racism.

    • Do black lives really matter. Eight unarmed black people were killed last year by Cops, total. And more white people are killed every year vs blacks. Chicago alone sees 700 black on black murders every year.
      If i were black in America and shot and killed i prey its a cop or white that pulls the trigger. I will be instantly maryred vs just another statistic.

    • @Jeremy Backup Put the crack pipe down, Jeremy, and sober-up.

    • Jeremy Backup | June 12, 2020 at 2:03 PM | Reply

      @Mcbeezee Right, one would need to smoke crack to be a Trump supporter at this point in History.

    • @Jeremy Backup well last month you were watching tiger king in your pajamas. You implied that you do care about those kids but you couldn’t name 3 without Google

  5. People can’t change the way they look, so maybe we should change the way we see.

  6. Well said Joe on your health care comment. It is also questionable ,why black women die in child birth in 2020.

    • StarkRaving Ralph | June 13, 2020 at 1:47 AM | Reply

      All colors of women still die from childbirth. It’s not that uncommon.

    • Lynn Middleton | June 13, 2020 at 8:46 AM | Reply

      StarkRaving Ralph I can say I almost died at the age of 29 from blood clots which is rare during the first trimester of pregnancy. In fact I did die and was resuscitated and I was unable to continue to full term without guaranteed death for my baby and myself. Unfortunately childbirth has been something that has taken the lives of all races of women for thousands and thousands of years. However I will say that healthcare and early warning can save the lives of women in danger and that’s a problem among lower income people of all races.

      @Lynn Middleton I’m glad you survived, thanks for sharing your story.

      “Women have a greater lifetime risk of dying in pregnancy-related causes in the USA than in 40 other countries. For women of colour the risks are especially high.” https://www.amnesty.org/en/documents/AMR51/007/2010/en/
      HALF of those deaths are preventable.

      While the rest of the world was making progress, America remained the ONLY country whose death rates were rising.

      AIUSA.org Check out the “Deadly Delivery: Maternal Mortality Campaign” When I worked on it and met with Senators and Reps, NONE of them knew about the state of women in America. This was news to them. So, if you think leaders are more informed than you… NOT!

      It’s a democracy. YOU as a citizen, RULE public servants. If YOU are not participating, then there’s your problem. Get involved BEFORE it’s your turn to die of a preventable death, or your loved ones.

    When fire police they should not be entitle to receive their pension.

    • Ray Lovelace | June 13, 2020 at 6:41 PM | Reply

      Really. I “lost” my pension when the Southern Baptists sold my hospital to Jeb Bush’s Tenet, Corp. They decided they needed my pension more than I did. Then somebody noticed I was at the top of the pay scale, so I was dumped. Just Social Security now. I want to live in a country where the poor have the same right to steal from the rich with total impunity as the rich enjoy stealing from the poor.

  9. Yes the hero was the 16 year old girl. That held the camera…

      LaQuinta Blaylock Black Lives Matters has a lot more support as a non profit, and I pray she (Darnella ) gets the protection she needs before and after any case or testimony…

    • Ray Lovelace | June 13, 2020 at 6:36 PM | Reply

      @mv4463I find her INFINITELY braver than all the cops added together. And INFINITELY more moral.

    • LaQuinta Blaylock | June 13, 2020 at 7:44 PM | Reply

      @James Carey Good Point. I haven’t seen any updates about how she is doing. It’s a shame that the news didn’t give her more coverage or better yet, someone to step up and give her the protection that she needs. She shouldn’t have to live her life looking over her shoulders, wondering if she is safe. Either way, anonymously or publicly released, law enforcement was going to find out where the video came from. Praying for her and everyone involved 🙏

    • @x1tekja there’s was another female that recorded a cop beating on a young man in North Carolina already on the ground and the woman with the man screaming stop hitting him. Hopefully she gave the video to the young man to give to a lawyer. That police officer does not need to be a police officer anymore. It was traumatizing to me to watch it.

    • @Ray Lovelace absolutely true.. she stayed the course even when the killer cop might have pepper sprayed her.. she was shielded from harm to show the world the unjustified death of a man… he is our martyr and she his hero…now he can rest in peace with his mom… just wish I was in a better position to help this young lady like the young man that got a car . These are the teens of tomorrow doing righteous things today..

      @Paul Muggins so true! Rodney King and OJ same race! One was rich one was poor!

    • Nicole Cordova ok I’ll agree with part of that. You need to go back and review those two cases though. A lot of difference in those two.

    • Nicole Cordova | June 13, 2020 at 9:21 PM | Reply

      @Robert I know the difference. What I am trying to say poor are like prey! No money for legal defense, some don’t know their rights. It’s easier to discriminate in poor communities!

    • Paul Muggins | June 13, 2020 at 9:21 PM | Reply

      @Nicole Cordova Cato and Hercules weren’t rich. Rich in Heart maybe.

    • Nicole Cordova yes to a point. But, you are using a comparison between apples and rocks to make a point. OJ Simpson got off because of the overwhelming pressure from the rioting and destruction around his trial. Later he suffered court defeat after defeat and is now in jail if memory serves me correctly.

    We need to put more money in communities and a whole lot less in policing. It’s ridiculous.

    • Roxann Watson | June 13, 2020 at 1:47 AM | Reply

      Are you being sarcastic? This is exactly what is needed. Reallocate $95+ million into the community. It would not only employ & educate the community; it would alleviate police activity. Call 911 & get the professional needed. Cops are not fire fighter, child protective services, mental health services, dog catcher, family/marriage counselor, Doctor… Nor have they been trained for these situations.

    • Julie Wigner | June 13, 2020 at 9:22 AM | Reply

      @Roxann Watson of course I’m not being sarcastic…!

  12. Why would a president want to rally around a community like Tulsa on the anniversary of a day that African Americans are remembering a horrible day in history for them. It’s another time to mourn for innocent lives taken. Keep Marching On. God bless you all and be safe.

    • Blink Once on Sunday! | June 13, 2020 at 12:38 PM | Reply

      Technically, the rally scheduled date of June 19th is the anniversary of the end of slavery, which is a good thing. The Tulsa massacre was on June 1st, 1921. Holding his first rally in Tulsa on June 19th is basically an insult pretending to be an honor for black people. It’s like inviting Jeffrey Epstein as a special guest to a birthday party for teenaged girls.

    • Because he simply cannot do anything right,, He’s the reverse of Spike Lee. Trump stars daily in the reality show saga “Do The Wrong Thing”…

      ​@Tara J. Fitzgerald Only one issue with your diagnosis: Not a sociopath, a Psychopath. Sociopaths don’t care how you feel. Psychopaths care deeply – they REALLY get off on misery, or just getting you to act against your beliefs.

    I can’t imagine how good this moment must feel after the horrible heart break Ms Taylor’s family has gone through. The same as Mr Garners family! It’s finally more than just lip service and we are seeing action. It’s not enough but we must start somewhere. We must continue to keep the momentum going!

    • @Kevin K. So true about the myth of policing. It is ironic but we have spoon fed by the TV stations for decades movies and police television shows where the cops are presented as heroes and saints. And too often the non white minorities are cast as the criminals. Now we have body cams , mobiles phones and the internet , so the tables are finally turning and the truth is finally being revealed.

      @DJ L hiya D, just wanna let you know something. Today I’m having an outpatients appointment down at the new RAH here on west terrace, Adelaide. I may walk down the terrace, to the other end and enter west terrace cemetery. I may sit at the gazebo in the Catholic section, I may look at the tombstones of the 3 union soldiers that gave their lives, and, their families took them home. They weren’t the only people that believed that black lives matter. These three men travelled a long way to die?, No, they travelled a long way so liberty should be for all. They lay here, here in South Australia, their names say as much.

  19. More Schools , Free College Education, Medical Services, less Police

  20. I can’t believe how it’s come to human lives meaning so little
