    Nothing has changed since that video was released. The jury found all cops not guilty of police brutality. When I first saw that video thirty years ago, I knew it was brutal to witness a human being being beaten for reasons I could not comprehend at that time. To me it clearly showed that he wasn’t resisting. To me it showed that he was trying to evade the brutal punishment that was being set upon him! All the cops were white and he was black and unarmed being pummeled with night sticks! If he were a smaller man they would have killed him!

    I remember the killing of a young girl around the same time by a Korean shopkeeper, she got away with murder by a racist judge

    The cops did beat that man and that was completely wrong but why did he get pulled over for? I’m sure that it wasn’t bad enough to get beat up. It was a different time and the tension was really bad but burning down business and hurting innocent people was stupid and wrong

    I tell you what why don't we start showing videos and percentages and numbers of how many black on white crime there is. Or since black lives matter so much why don't we show how many black on black crimes there have been in t he last 10 years. He ll I'll take the numbers of black on black crime in the last month and I guarantee that it's a hell of a lot more than white cop on black person. But I bet black on black crimes don't really matter to black people.

    It sucks what happened to the man. 50 lives were lost during the riot. 50 people of all colors and backgrounds die. Rioting is not the answer if it cost innocent people lives. That's my opinion.

    God what's wrong that still is happening? What in god earthly name blacks did to you? You tortured them to death and still do. Shame on you nazi's and racist ignorant who call yourselves Americans and I see it because of of your leader of the cult. I hope Mr. Biden and his administration can put end to all this nonsense.
