Seems that the only poster with their head up their ass is you.firecat69 wrote: ↑Mon Jun 01, 2020 5:18 pmAs usual a bunch a people posting who are ignorant. I live in Atlanta , 1 block from Centennial Olympic Park. In case you are ignorant about where that is . it is the main area of demonstrations . Every day they have been peaceful until night time when rabble rousers come in from out of state . Their mission is to create the sort of ignorance exhibited in this thread .
Really use real bullets for people who are breaking windows and looting . Lethal force is needed to protect life and life only , not Nike shoes .
Again get your heads out of your asses.The only person who has been assassinated is George Floyd and yet some of you would like police to use real bullets for theft. WAKE UP!!!!!
It's pretty rich for you to claim other posters are ignorant. Why don't you enlighten all of us with your solution to stop the destruction of the cities being carried out by lawless anarchists. Instead you want to post race baiting diatribes, which have little to do with the issue of George Floyd, being murdered by a Minneapolis police officer. Peaceful protests are certainly warranted in this instance, but not for the crap you're spewing.
A Supreme Court decision in 1985 states in part, that the use of deadly force is justified, if the officer believes a suspect is a threat to himself or others. While the theft of "Nike shoes" as you put it, is not in itself justifiable use of deadly force, the throwing of bricks, Molotov cocktails, and the shooting of 2 Federal Protective agents and 4 St. Louis police officer today certainly does. At last report, 60+ Secret Service Officers in DC have been injured by bricks and other objects, where do you draw the line? Perhaps you should invite some of these folks over to your house and serve them some tea and cookies.
So wise man, what is your solution, send the cops home, and let the lawless looters and shooters have their way. Tell the business owners who have lost their businesses and everything they own to these people to just suck it up and live with it? Perhaps you are ignorant of the fact that many of these businesses are in minority neighborhoods, and are owned by minorities. Insurance normally will not pay for destruction caused by civil unrest, and this certainly qualifies. The police are severely outnumbered and are at a disadvantage when politicians tell them to stand down and let the protestors vent. How long should we let people burn and loot businesses, vehicles, and public buildings?
I know you are in the South, but they actually do have television there in Atlanta, I've been there and saw it for myself. Perhaps you should try watching a bit of it.firecat69 wrote: ↑Tue Jun 02, 2020 10:56 amSo much garbage in this post it is hard to know where to begin. I just can't imagine where all those people are that are getting bitten and killed by gangs of Black Thugs. That would be Zero. Last time I checked the only person that has been killed is George Floyd in Minnesota and he was killed by a bunch of white cops. There are no huge gangs of Black Thugs. There are unfortunately some people looting stores and of course there is no excuse for that .
I am not in peaceful Thailand but rather right in the middle of what is happening in Atlanta, Ga where I live and posts like this could only be from a Trumpster which of course is what is wrong with everything in the USA. He let 40,000 Chinese in after he finally restricted them. He did not seal off Europe and he did none of the things that anyone of the last 20 Presidents would have done and the loss of life and economy would have been a fraction of what has taken place. He is a complete Moron and will be run out of town in November , but the damage he has done will be around for years!
So, who cares that you live in Atlanta near Centennial Park. What does that have to do with anything? These riots are happening all over the country. I think most of us are smart enough to figure out that the problems come at night, not in the daytime. I also think most of us also realize that the trouble is being encouraged by outside actors and not legitimate protesters. If you watch the news footage, there are plenty of young whites involved in this as well, not just blacks.
Peaceful protest is protected by the U.S. Constitution as is the right to assembly, but it does not protect against violence in the process, regardless of your attempt to justify it with a history of racial inequity.
Perhaps you are the one who needs to pull your head out of your ass and offer some constructive commentary rather than berate others.
