Night of violence across America leaves streets scarred, outrage simmering

Yep, that'll do it... keep repeating exactly what hasn't worked for the disenfranchised in the USA since its inception. Systemic change has only ever happened in America via protest and/or riots.

 

Not sure I follow - Does rioting and looting and burning down buildings write laws in the USA?

Being intentionally obtuse is unbecoming.

So we should allow the rioting and looting and burning of cars for a while, then write laws in congress to try and address the problem?

The scene of the tanker truck on the I 35 bridge in Minneapolis is pretty surreal.

 

Too bad we aren't allowed to post things like that. 

 

Sure thats Trumps fault too.

If Black American and their white sheet followers want change then perhaps they should join the police force, and see how their fellows act, when they are breaking the law and their actions when stopped for the acts. I don't condone the action of the Police officers and am sure they will pay for their parts in the death. Instead of filming the problem, perhaps intervention would have been more appropriate why was he arrested? and why was it necessary to be held, did attitude played a part in the action?

Unless one of the old geezers kicks off between now and November and the Republicrats or the Demicans put forth a better candidate, I'm not optimistic that we'll be seeing much peace and stability on the streets.  Unless it's under perpetual curfews and jackboots.

 

Fortunately as per normal Republican dogma - it is unlikely that the jackboots will be from the federal level unless specifically asked for by local state governments.

Clearly, racism has been a problem in America forever.  BUT it's no where near the MOST racist country in the world.  Hundreds of millions of immigrants go to America for a reason; however, racism against blacks is pretty bad (probably top 15 in the world).

 

Had someone from S. Africa say America is the most racist because America is on the news.   ???????????????????  

 

People also forget the MILLIONS murdered because they weren't Catholic.  

 

i remember the American riots in 1992.  in 1992, everyone said, "never again."  

 

ok

If you want the cop to walk away free charging him with first degree murder is the perfect way to do so. 

I agree, and it’s one of those occasions when prosecutors need to do the smart thing rather than the emotively popular thing.

 

The mistake I feel they made is there was enough evidence in the video footage to have arrested and charged the officer on Day 1, even the commonly used ‘holding charge’ would have indicated action was being taken.

 

The delay in taking action is without doubt a contributing factor to the ensuing public anger.
