Written by GTrain in the other place.....

You are making a generalization with no data. There are numerous studies, as recent as last year, that span over 20 years that show clearly, that there is no disproportionate shootings of black Americans vs white Americans. There is just no evidence. In a country of 300 million, we see singular incidents that trigger this horrific notion that America is this racist country and there is no, and mean not a single, professional and clear study that shows this. None. Despite academics on the left searching for some or any evidence, none is found. Even today, there is nobody supporting the actions of the officers in MN, even other law enforcement officials in other states. You have uniform agreement that this was a crime, and yet the notion continues on race.

Incidents of shootings by police are directly correlated to the rate of violent crime in a community, not race. The fact that communities with higher rates of violence tend to be a predominate race, is not indicative of the rate of shootings by police. Black communities with low violent crime, have low rates of police shootings, period. In fact, high violent crime white communities have a higher civilian shooting rate than black communities in studies. Look up Rowland Fryar, an economist at Harvard who happens to be black, published papers that show that statistically there NO racial differences in police shootings.

This continual leftist narrative riding the racist card to elections is tearing the country apart. When will all minorities, not just black minorities, see that the left rides their votes to power on the back of lies and race bating in an effort to defend the welfare state that creates the divide they need to seize power....

I feel like I cannot stress this enough so I will make sure it cannot be missed...

The guy did not deserve to be killed. <<< Pay attention to this <<<<<<
The guy did not deserve to be killed. <<< Pay attention to this <<<<<<
The guy did not deserve to be killed. <<< Pay attention to this <<<<<<
The guy did not deserve to be killed. <<< Pay attention to this <<<<<<
The guy did not deserve to be killed. <<< Pay attention to this <<<<<<

However, I will apply the same logic the mask people use and say "Even if it helps a LITTLE BIT" you can avoid being killed by the police...

By not committing a crime. It's no guarantee...but even if it helps a LITTLE to keep you alive...DON'T BREAK THE LAW !!

If you GENUINELY feel "hunted", "singled out", "persecuted", whatever as a person or as a race, I would think the LAST thing you would do is break the law and give the police a REASON to cross your path.

Example:

In the US, I might be tempted to push the speed limit, I might take a short cut through a gas station, I might drive past the expiration on my tags...

Now put me in North Korea and HELL NO. Why? Because I don't want to be in a North Korean jail.

If minorities applied this same logic 50 years ago, don't you think by now, they would no longer be like fishing in a barrel? Racial profiling works...because IT WORKS !!

Break that system and you break the system. Meaning, after 5,000,000 stops with no drugs found, no weapons found, no stolen merchandise found, the profiling will stop because it DOESN'T WORK !

Here's an interesting bit of information which could mean something or nothing at all. George Floyd and the cop who kneeled on him both worked as bouncers at the same night club.

Is this thread about Floyd or looters? Looters and looting is fkd up. Itís easy to shit on them. A bigger question might be what could be done to prevent it after the fact. After what went down with Floyd. I donít have any ideas. A mob is pissed and they start destroying shit to lash out. How can that be prevented?

Simple. Chicken shit cops could grow some balls and do the job they were hired to do.

Don't give a shit.

But, the terrorist burning and looting the cities should be gathered up and sent to Guantanamo Bay.

I watched the video. One of the bystanders kept saying 'why didn't you just get in the car" he must have resisted at that point. He didn't deserve to die. But, why not comply and this shit wouldn't happen. That should be the lesson in all this.

OK, the former cop was charged with 3rd degree murder. Why not second degree murder?

Are the other three going to be charged too?

As the former cop and the dead guy BOTH worked security at a "certain venue", who had an axe to grind with the other? Did Mr Floyd mention something during the incident to push the former cop over the edge?

KYW1060 ( out of Phila) mentioned this morning that security footage shows a cuffed George Floyd trip and fall. Then the 7 minute knee film is captured. Did the former cop decide that the fall was "resisting arrest"?

Let people defend their businesses and property with whatever they need to to not be looted or burned out. If the police are going to abdicate their role as keepers of the peace, then at least give the people the right to keep the peace themselves. For companies like Target and Walmart, they'd probably have to hire Blackwater, or similar merc company to protect their assets. I doubt regular security guards would be willing to do what was necessary.
