On 25/5/2020 a policeman killed George Floyd while arresting him for passing out phony $20 bills. He held his knee to the back of Floyd's neck, Floyd said he couldn't breathe but the officer did not release his knee. This resulted in protests that later turned into riots. Thoughts? Additional stories?

Minneapolis you were given the world’s stage and had the world’s ear. EVERYONE was behind you and supported the protest and fight for justice.

• The public spoke out against those officers.
• Police officers all over the country spoke out against those officers.
• Elected Officials spoke out against those officers.
• ALL races and ethnicities spoke out against those officers.
• President Trump spoke out against those officers.

And you wasted it.... you wasted the perfect platform and opportunity to unite everyone together and coordinate a movement that would’ve gone down in the history books as a tipping point for reform. Everyone around the world was on your side and listening...

And you ruined it.

Additional stories?

Maybe start with Rodney King, and all those killed while not being filmed?

The EMT shot for "Sleeping while black"
Aubry and his story
Eric Garner
154 rounds from more than a dozen police shot at an unarmed couple in a car that backfired (Cleveland a number of years ago)

They are more commonplace than school shootings.

It's not going to stop.

basely, if the protesters does everything peacefully orderly, the right people will listen and willing change laws.

if the protesters causes violent and no peace, the right people will simply turn away and do nothing.

There is at least one video going around, which appears to be real...

If it is real, it seems that the rioting was started by outsiders... or at least contributed to by outsiders including a white guy.

Another example, relative to the protests/riots in Detroit: Detroit Police Chief James Craig: “Many of those arrested are not residents of the city of Detroit.“

This is often the pattern with riots; outsiders inciting the violence.

That does not, of course, absolve any locals who participated.

Exactly, those riots were instigated by people other than the protesters. That auto zone video is particularly damning. That was intentional instigating, and that guy knew it and knew he was f***ing caught.

I’ve heard the protesters were trying to protect the library last night, but it may not have completely worked. That person was also not a “protester” or from the neighborhood. I’m not certain video was caught. Lots of phones are getting confiscated. People are getting arrested for trying to pick up the trash, and held in isolation at least day. it’s a clusterf***.

in the michael brown protesting, i was lived about or less 15 miles away. most protesting, where i lived both local and outside protesters came out of state to cause trouble. back then, most protesters really believed that peace was the right thing.

part of problem at the beginning, was michael's uncle tell everyone to become violent, and some of the town of michael was born was destroyed by fire and looting. my ex-boss's store was almost destroyed by the roiting. last this past week, it has been peaceful marching and looting in st. louis.

my statement before this in this topic, both sides of the issue need to be heard, and violence, just close doors to peace. peace protesting is a not only mature way of doing.

with change between local, state, and the government stop put their heads in the sand, and simply listen to their voters and change laws. simply. not one group of people for all groups of people.

Looks like a bunch of white dudes where also recorded starting damaging property and starting s*** in Oakland.

This is intentional instigated to discredit the outrage and keep the status quo by any means necessary.

The phrase you're looking for is Agents Provocateur. And it doesn't just happen in Minneapolis.

I can't say who started the bad stuff, but the way it looks on Auntie isn't good. If the TV images we're getting are typical of what is going out all over the world, then the protesters are going to come out of this badly, which means in the long run that nothing will change.

Very disturbing though to see the CNN reporter being arrested for legitimately covering the story. I thought you had a free press over there..???

You’d think.
He’s not the only one MN Police have arrested without cause. He’s the one who’s one phone call was to a person that had money and power to bring the story to light. (His bosses). They are putting everyone they arrrest in quarantine. I mean one, is concern over covid but two it is also a rights violation on top of a s*** ton of other right violations after f***ing murder.

It’s a s***show Jennifer.

We do still have free press... at least for the moment.

We also have the freedom to be willfully ignorant, which takes precedence over all other freedoms in the USA.
