Try to understand

Try to understand

These poor people have suffered 400 years in a system that casts them as the underdog. We can blame only ourselves for not being understanding enough.

Stealing TVs and other items from stores what does that have to do with a guy getting killed And you see them all smiling and laughing and having a great time I don’t see people who are suffering

I also understand
Guest
I also understand

None of these people are close to 400 years old they grew up with the same freedoms as we do, now we can’t blame ourselves for hating them- (these rioting thug’s) not because they’re black, rather because they are looting stores and burning things and nearly killing people, they don’t respect other people’s liberty so they don’t deserve any

Black Lives Matter
Guest
Black Lives Matter

If they want to show that black lives matter, this is not the way to do it. Acting like thugs will only cause more racism not less. Act like a human being and you’ll be treated as one. We’ve been prosecuted in every generation yet we never lowered ourselves to such a level. Black lives matter, but so do white lives. Every life is precious and no excuse in the world justifies the killing and no excuse justifies these riots either.

Suffering? You've got to be kidding
Guest
Suffering? You've got to be kidding

Or most likely, pro violence and theft.

U got this way wrong man, that’s just wrong. Looting, rioting, shooting tear gas, almost killing people who are trying to protect their stores, etc. etc. has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING/ZILTCH/SQUAT to do with slavery…IT WAS ALREADY 150 YEARS SINCE THEN!! THEY’RE ANIMALS, DUDE!! FREAKIN ANIMALS!! DON’T START COMING TO THEIR PITY PARTY AND EXPECT EVERYONE ELSE TO COME TOO!!

I don't get it

I don't get it

What does this have to do with their “cause” ????

I DO GET IT

I DO GET IT

THEIR ATTITUDE IS IF THE POLICE CAN COMMIT MURDER WHY CAN’T WE STEAL

Small difference...
Guest
Small difference...

The officer was condemned by everyone and will get prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

However you seem to identify with and will not condemn these anarchist.

That don't make sense dear

That don't make sense dear

My dog killed himself so I’m gonna copy him?
You don’t steal bc a murder happened. That’s not an answer

Two wrongs don’t make a right

Two wrongs don’t make a right

If one police did something wrong doesn’t justify thousands of people to steel and damage property.

I’m not understanding what did these stores do them? What’s their message? That they know how to act simply out of hand? What does this have to do with Gorge being killed?

It’s not just about George
Guest
It’s not just about George

It not just about George it’s about all the other African Americans that were killed in the hands of white cops. Call this the last straw on the camels back

It has nothing to do with anything
Guest
It has nothing to do with anything

Its just that these swindlers found a perfect time to steal, perfect opportunity amid crazy chaos.

Ask yourself
Guest
Ask yourself

If you walked by a store that had a broken window and you could go in and take what you want (seemingly) without consequence, would you? If before that happened, someone of the same skin color or religion (or however you identify yourself) who you don’t personally know, in another town, got murdered by an authority figure, would that change your perspective on whether to rob and vandalize and “vent”? And what if also, there were many others with whom you identify, already stealing and looting and vandalizing, would you join? Ultimately, these times identify who and what people are… Read more »

It has NOTHING to do with George
Guest
It has NOTHING to do with George

All of humanity agrees that what happened to George was beyond horrible and the policeman was cruel and murderous and should be treated as such.
But THIS – destroying property, stealing, and violent behavior has NOTHING to do with George’s death, they are just using it as an excuse.

Peaceful protests is one thing, fine.
This violence and looting is absolutely unacceptable.

The people that were looting they were not there to protest,they were there to loot, and there were thousands of people that were just protesting and the protesters were not happy that people came tolootl

Gates on Stores

Gates on Stores

This is horrific, Sadly the one thing that looks like all these Stores have in common is that None of these stores have any store gate when closed, just the glass, which with bricks and hard objects do break and give the criminals entry, We need to be prepared in case Chas Vishalom this escelates, All CH Stores that do Not have a gate (i would estimate about 60 percent have a gate, and about 40 percent either does not have a gate or does not have a gate covering over All the Windows/Doors giving a entry way if the… Read more »

Political Correctness Appeasement
Guest
Political Correctness Appeasement

Assuming that the “peaceful” protests were hijacked by some who were encouraging rioting, violence and stealing, it is reckless for the Mayor not to impose a curfew after the first night of rioting, and not to ask the Governor to bring in the National Guard as a back up. The Mayor is more worried about the progressive vote, which sympathizes with criminal behavior, rather than upholding the rule of law in a just society. Mayor and Governor discuss curfew. https://1010wins.radio.com/articles/de-blasio-to-discuss-curfew-with-gov-cuomo-after-protests

For SHAME !!!

Total incompetence from the Cuomo, DiBalzio and the NYPD, for shame !!!
NYC knows how to squeeze hard earned money from law abiding citizens but is TOTALLY IGNORANT in EVERYTHING ELSE. DiBalsio should be thrown in jail !!!

Let’s remember the blackouts…… the same looting…smashing storefronts, stealing whatever could be carried away…. what was the cause for anger then?? This is an area where change is needed, this is a culture in need of reform. Leaders need to take responsibility!! G-d Bless America!

Your mentality
Guest
Your mentality

These aren’t the majority of the protesters who are looting, these are groups of people who are taking advantage of this time to steal. Not related to George Floyd. The problem is, so many people have the mentality that these people are bad and violent and so many other wrong things, so when some people do things like this, they overgeneralize and group them all together. To say that this isn’t helping their name is wrong, since you’re the one who has created the name! “The name” only exist because you think like that, so when a few people do… Read more »
