    We all know they don't have Jobs to go to. We need to start protesting the lazy black community facts

    Destruction can't be tolerated, unless it's the destruction of black lives. That's fully tolerable, apparently.

    The issue I have with this is Peaceful protest = nothing done about the situation and they get ignored Violent protest= look at those niggers, they're so violent & destructive why can't they do a peaceful protest. Either way nothing gets done. After calmly speaking to someone and feeling like you aren't getting heard eventually you're going to start to raise your voice to make sure they heard you loud and clear.

    How about: DON'T arrest them, and give up your Goddamn job to someone who's more qualified!! I honestly don't care about destruction of property when it comes to police; I HATE police!! They are nothing but a bunch of ignorant thugs in uniform who should be held accountable for EVERYTHING they do, ESPECIALLY when it comes to handling suspects!!! I honestly don't care anymore!!! America, your police suck, and I will NOT have you racially profile suspects just for your own personal and financial gain!!! I hope y'all get EXACTLY what you deserve!!!

    Neither can the killing of innocent people by cops who believe they are above the law, but where is your press conference about that

    Destruction is the voice of those who have been ignored for two long. People have been telling the folks in power that our police system is fucked for (at least) 50 years. If you can't secure people's human rights after 50 years, they have every right to get angry, and their violence is absolutely understandable. When our national heroes say give me liberty or give me death, we applaud, but god forbid a black person take up the same mantra.
