      Yeah but if you don’t nail these rioters the US might become like Zimbabwe with Robert Mugabe as POTUS. Get that rebel trash off our streets and into prisons.

      Goes back to education and to the nuclear family Is there a father in the home? Do the children have parents that provide for them? What kind of examples do the children have in their lives?

    • Right on

      They can be American when they act like Americans.

      @Logic Police they are. They are using their freedom of expression to get the country to notice their frustration with inaction on police brutality.

    “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.” John F Kennedy.   Unless socioeconomic change happens this situation will happen again.  Until humanity evolves enough to realize that there is only one race, the human race, this situation will happen again.

    Police Brutality isn’t just overpolicing. In that case, the police are acting like judge and jury and worst of all EXECUTIONER. They are sentencing people to death.

      @Brother Sanguinary

      Actually, he was probably told to go there by the Secret Service. These “protesters” better watch their step. There are reasons why we fought for the larger magazines in the AR-15!

      @Michael Duff while he was handcuffed and on the ground; really Michael you’ll never have to worry about police brutality easy for you to make your opinion known but you’ll never face injustice like that of George Floyd; he was murdered in cold blood that is Criminal Homicide it is written in the Bible that should be punished with death whom commit Criminal Homicide; and the police officer should be punished with the death penalty! If not then he will face the. Judge of Judges GOD Almighty; and he might end up in that lake of fire being blotted out of existence;

      @Michael Duff: naturally you need a machine gun AK 47 Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahajaha; in my 44 year’s on this earth I have never resorted to owning a gun and I grew up in Boyle Heights East Los Angeles was born and raised there when it was one of the most dangerous places in the united states during the early 80s I have never needed a weapon and if I was you I wouldn’t be threatening anyone because I gaurantee you probably need a weapon because your Boxing skills leave a lot to be desired lol I learned how to box at eight year’s old and trained in Martial art’s when I was thirteen years old….

      @Marcus Guzman Did they teach you to dodge bullets?

    • Michael Duff | June 1, 2020 at 4:54 PM | Reply

      @Marcus Guzman How did he get on the ground? He fought being put in the car. You call it whatever you like but you know I am right. Floyd brought this on himself by resisting arrest. It wasn’t because he was black, but because he was stupid.

    Well said Mr. Moore.

  6. For decades, Americans have voted for “law and order” candidates promising us that everything would be better if we just had stricter laws and put more people in jail.
    This is the natural result.

  7. Meanwhile President Hunker in the Bunker is nowhere to be seen…..
    And nothing to say unless it’s a vindictive tweet.

      @ma,ma gee’s gospel Biden should get out of his basement and set an example since he is hoping to be the next president. Dont you think?

      gospel  unfortunately all biben has done is blame and point fingers. He has yet to mention any solution that he might actually implement. Sorry, but pointing fingers is not anything concrete. It’s really just saying “I don’t have a plan” yea I couldn’t vote for someone who thinks hiding out durring the worst time in our history and pointing fingers with no viable offering to a solution. Unless ” if you dont vote for me you ain’t black” is a solution. No better than trump.

    the reasons this started were a counterfeit money maker, and a store clerk. Right?
    The person who called police in the first place? That person wouldn’t take a counterfeit bill so due to their direct action, calling the police to ‘arrest that man!’, a man died instead.
    Similar to the ‘birdwatching criminal’, did George’s accuser make the call simply Because George was a black American?

    • Yes a 20.00 counterfeit bill. In Miami unfortunately you get them all the time! Smh

    • Michael Duff | June 1, 2020 at 11:07 AM | Reply

      Nonsense, George is dead because George was stupid.

    • Neon Clover | June 1, 2020 at 2:24 PM | Reply

      I am not American but I do believe that when a counterfeit note is presented, it is standard practice to contact law enforcement. As such, they may enquire of the citizen with the note where and how he got the note. The citizen may or may not be charged, I think, based on police discretion. I cannot blame the cashier for calling the police.

    • Ruthe Johnston | June 1, 2020 at 2:30 PM | Reply

      @Neon Clover i maintain the same phone call would not have been made if a white person paid using a fake bill (still unproven, as is Floyd’s intent)

    • @Neon Clover I thought the Secret Service handles counterfeit currency. The police would have just been there to collect information, not to try to arrest anyone.

    Law EnFARCEment = The Real Thugs.

  10. America is run on great western values ; values like colonialism , slavery , racism and regime changing . Seems more like western barbarianism and now I know why China built the great wall .

    • You’re seriously going to bring China in as a good example? Ask the Uighur how they feel about that. Tienanmen Square has not been forgotten. Freedom for all.

    • China never brag or boast of its ‘Chinese values’ and impose it on other nations unlike the pretense of US foreign policies .

  11. We don’t care if you love us or not! You dont know what love is…

  12. Time for change

    Everyone sees it
    Everyone knows it

    End the power trip police
    End police immunity
    End police brutality

    Make them accountable!

  13. And where is your president
    Leading the voice for the helpless
    Hiding in a bunker
    Most pathetic president Ever

    • And he’s attacking mail-in voting during a pandemic, when he himself votes by mail!

    • Fact checked that he voted by email 3 times, and McEneny voted by email 11 times..so their excuses not to vote by email are absurd.

      GRK Alexis I’m sure there are lots of Republicans who vote by absentee ballots but since the reality show star in chief hates it, they hate it too.

    From overseas: I like what mr Moore states!! I’d like to add, that the US needs more than a FAKE president and his disgusting gang to make America greater in the sense mr Moore is hoping for..

    • Yeah. Way ahead of you there. Did you not notice how Trump lost the popular vote by the largest margin in American history? He was elected by a minority of Americans, not the majority. Also, we tried to impeach him and remove him from office, but the corrupt Republicans, who only care about their tax cuts for the super rich, wanted their puppet in office and ditched their duty to the country for cold hard cash. We’ve been trying to get rid of this jerk for three and half years and the richest 1% have taken over the democratic process and denied the voice of the majority of people. Also, may I remind you that Russia meddled in our election? This was not what we wanted either.

    • Mars Van Leent | June 1, 2020 at 11:17 AM | Reply

      BJ Rosen I know all that you state, and I follow the unvelievable events in the US since the so-called election of Trump. I even yelled at him when he was in Rome in 2017 to visit the Pope, wishing him to leave my beloved Europe asap. I wish you all the best and sincerely hope your country will find a new and peaceful balance, without racism, and with more freedom and wealth for all that need it!!! Kind regards.

  15. Police needs to stop calling the cavalry and shutting down every highway lane for a simple traffic stop- let’s start with that.

    Just like climate change and gun violence, this will all die down again until something comes up to reignite it. But real change hasn’t happened yet.

    • Judith Wake | June 1, 2020 at 3:11 PM | Reply

      I don’t think it will die down again.
      We are at the beginning of the greatest world and American depression in history. Unless we can regain the peoples trust in our press and government as benign entities the people will more likely than not tear down this nation around their own ears and build some government and a press that we can trust.

  17. Artemis Pyle | June 1, 2020 at 11:38 AM | Reply

    A start would be ridding your government of aged self serving trough feeders.

    • Yup. And getting rid of the ridiculous, out-dated, cumbersome and corrupt political system. Justice dispensed by political appointees, the majority vote LOSING the presidence (called ‘the popular vote”? wtf?), long repeatable terms, paid lobbying so that politicians answer to wealthy lobbyists not their electorates, gerrymandering, deliberate restrictions on voting stations so that people have to queue to vote, voting day on a Work day mid-week so that workers must leave work to vote? Corrupt, out-dated system.

    Why is it that it takes a moment like this in our history to raise some form of public awareness?

    I second that, when I was in the British Army I was in Kosovo and Bosnia, countries I never really had any understanding about.
