Yeah....... let's focus on what's really important here.
Rioting IS bullshit, but I can hardly blame the rioters. There is a LOT of pent-up anger. Shit like this just happens over and over and over again ad nauseam and nothing constructive or permanent ever gets done about it. Just a lot of useless hand-wringing from the usual suspects, and it's "file it away with the others." It's incredible that in 2020 racial tensions in the country, especially involving KKK cops, haven't gotten any better and we seem to be in the 1950's all over again.
Rioting is bullshit and this does nothing to help heal the rifts we have. Is the investigation on these cops finished?
easy for you to say, you werent enslaved 400 years, whipped, raped, dehumanized, its an INTERGENERATIONAL TRAUMA that is still ongoing, not in actual slavery anymore, but WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS, IN THE MOST LIBERAL FUCKING CITY ON EARTH, JUST 3 DAYS AGO:
Are we to continue living this way? Abhorrent act..... investigation..... may or may not impart justice..... rinse and repeat.
Do we not care about something called "preventive action"?
Why should people accept this kind of shit happening continuously without something permanent and constructive being done that will PREVENT this type of occurrence.
It's public knowledge that police forces across the U.S. are filled with racist, power-drunk, abusive white assholes.
Rather than ask whether yet another useless investigation is finished.... shouldn't we be asking what is being done to improve these police forces once and for all?
Other than Denilson, who is basically a comical caricature of an angry black man resentful of all whites, and equally comically claiming that ALL whites are racist......... I'm probably one of those who is absolutely disgusted at how this blatant, racist police abuse of deadly force continues to be basically ignored by society in general. If you're white.... then obviously it's not your fucking problem. But to others, it is. Racism continues to be one of the worst scourges of society. Sad how we can be so "advanced" in some things, and so "Neanderthal-like" in others.
IMO, it's bullshit washing of the hands to lean on (cough) investigations, which half the time end up not meting out justice, and ALL of the time ends up taking far too long. Yet nothing of substance gets done, and it's on to the next occurrence a few months/weeks from now. I'll never be ok with this bullshit.
The thing is, when you protest the abuses of government by burning and looting private businesses, it kind of looks like you just jumped at the chance to get some free stuff. It makes about as much sense as other people protesting the government's abuse of authority by waving the symbol of that government and not breaking any laws.
It is very apparent to me that the media rushes to paint these things as race issues as opposed to what they really are; the logical end result of government power. If they didn't portray it that way, the guys marching with flags and the guys looting Target might realize that they are on the same side.
The looters that ransack businesses to steal stuff are a by-product of every riot known to man. It's unfortunate, because it takes away from the message wanting to be conveyed by those who are just truly angry at the racial abuses that continue happening. The looting gives people the chance to dismiss the real issues at hand by pointing at the damn looters who are just taking advantage of the situation to steal and destroy private property. All in all a sad state of affairs.
