    In 2019, almost 1,100 Americans were killed by police. About a quarter were black, but African-Americans only make up 13 per cent of the population.

    I think that the policing in America is to blame much more so than outright racism.

    Wrong. The police are inherently racist. Most are from rural backgrounds and ex military. They do not live in the cities they police. That is a problem.

    There may be murder charges laid and depending upon autopsy results according to a police representative.

    If I saw a human treating a dog in the same fashion I would intervene in some way to stop the torture.

    One of the worst actions I have ever seen and to watch the other police just stand by and allow it to continue is sickening.

    The riots, attacks on other innocent police, buildings burning and looting is also disturbing.

    That was fucking shocking. One guy pinned an unarmed man down, the other one shot him in the back and killed him.

    It was just an execution. "Involuntary manslaughter" they called it.

    I just watched an extended version of the video right up to when the ambulance arrived and took the victim away.

    This was murder without doubt.

    Fucking disgusting action and the killer will have to pay.

    Leaders in the city have been urging the public for calm in recent days, according to the report.


    How about leaders in city do more than lip service?

    Looting and rioting and killing cops feels like the only way.

    Yikes!

    Right-Wing ‘Race War’ Wannabes Could Make Police Protests Go Nuclear

    Protesters in Minneapolis didn’t know the precise affiliation of a man who showed up on Tuesday at the first night of unrest over the death of 46-year-old George Floyd in police custody. What they did know was that he was white and heavily armed.

    “There was what we think was a white supremacist who was fully armed with clips and everything, who some of the men in the crowd were able to identify and remove,” Nekima Levy-Armstrong, a civil rights attorney who attended the Tuesday protests, told The Daily Beast. “He [the armed white man] actually said, ‘You all just saved some lives tonight.’”

    The Minneapolis protests this week—which resulted in fires and broken windows and reports of at least one adjacent shooting death—aren’t just drawing racial justice activists. They’re attracting attention from heavily-armed forces on the right. Some of them, members of a growing white supremacist movement, openly hope to co-opt the protests to start a race war. Others claim to make common cause with anti-police protesters, but may be inclined to turn guns on protesters when they appear to threaten private property.


    Both are a potential powder keg as protesters take to the streets in cities across the country, and hint at a new coalition of volatile right-wing ideologies.

    Where all the white people at? Not a very diverse group of looters.
    In fact I think it's a conspiracy, they never show the Asian looters.

    And when push comes to shove and he is confronted by ten black men with guns this cretin would piss himself

    Are you that much of a simpleton?

    Let me try:

    All these criminals are white . . . ergo sum all criminals are white and all whites are criminals.


    Wow, it's just so easy being a bigot

    George Floyd killed whilst being arrested on suspicion of forgery, these two beauts apprehended after stabbing a person (who is now in critical condition) and barricading themselves in a room, no issues with 'resisting arrest' there apparently:

    I'm just making the observation that I've seen lots of photos over years of people in the states looting and they almost never show a racially diverse group of looters. The photographers are obviously bigots is what I'm saying.
