I have a Arsenal and well trained on how to use each one. Someone comes to my shop they had better think twice! Some on this board thinks it fine that THUGS destroy peoples property and livelihood’s, I was always told NOT to touch things they weren’t mine. But here again I was raised by men that served in our military and taught me respect!

Remember the famous words" Say hello to my Little friend"  And its not a movie joke.

We dont ahave a problem out here. We are pretty accepting of ALL people.   This is a city thing. Ironic  the top 30 cities are  progressive. They need to change and havent.  (Ill stop. Its not the Debate Forum) these protests do nothing but attract the nutcases.

just heard from family in Lakeland fl …..they were at a target and were told to exit as quick as possible  because protesters were there and they were closing

What I’m trying to understand is how ANY business had anything to do with this tragic event? 

Businesses never did have anything to do with anything. It's a case of if you can't scream at the boss you go home and scream at the kids. If you can't get at the bad cop go shoot one who is guilty of doing nothing more than wanting to protect people.  And of course it is always a good way as Basset says to pick up some early Christmas presents. It's mob mentality. Unfortunately, nothing has been done in the last administration to control these riots. The police were consistently ordered to stand down and calling out the National Guard was unthinkable. You reap what you sow. I hope Mr. Obama sees what became of seeing rioters as people who could have been his "son." I hope he raised his daughters better.

Your question was addressed as always.              Not a "moral high ground" but rather what I see as a moral normalcy.  Where  moral behavior is expected it is not considered 'high ground' to simply practice what is 'normal'.             I doubt that nearly any white American would be willing to be treated in general as our society treats black Americans, yet it seems that most/many white Americans are fine with accepting how black Americans are treated------they take no action, or some may even encourage it......

Guess you have never been a young white male in a large city. Discrimination comes in all shapes, sizes and colors.

Where is out here?

I am raising 2 bi racial children right here in Good ol' DuBois, PA. There is racism here, from the people and most definitely one police officer.

I've lost track at how many times my 17 year old son is called a Ni**er while walking down the street from people in our small town community.   

I know first hand of peaceful protests over the weekend that were being forbidden in Dayton Ohio and those protesters being tear gassed. If you do not permit peaceful protests or those peaceful protests do not amount to change, what did people think was eventually going to happen? 

There is a problem that has had little to no consequence for far too long !! Maybe looting isn't the answer but people have had enough. My emotions have been over the top through all of this because I see all sides. But with everyone of these deaths that occur with little to no consequence my heart can't help but think....what if that was my son or my daughter and what would I do. I do not think my mindset would let me be peaceful.

There is racism out here. Those people are bigot idiots. My brother's significant other of many years is black. Beautiful person. if somebody said something in my presence watch out.  The problem of the peaceful protests is that the  paid militant protesters are mixing in. The peaceful protesters only now have started to root them out. I guess better late than never. Instead of looting they should be kicking these people out.  I just dont understand why loot and  burn down your own community. Its going to take a longtime if ever to rebuild and the lost jobs. if your son is ever in a place like Mc D's or a store  and I  hear the intent of the person, Guaranteed I would say something at the risk of confrontation. But I guess that's just me. Im understanding of everybody unless they force their ideals on me.

 PS If I ever see  whoever that cop is do that. I WILL report him personally.

There will always be those people who want to criticize , be negative, downright rude and nasty.  It's a minor form of violence.  No matter how you look or act, someone will be ready to say something negative and hurtful.  Those you have to ignore because that's what hurts them the most. It teaches you to rise above the petty comments and hopefully remember not to do it to others which makes you a BETTER and more positive person. You must be the peacemaker that God chooses to be His children.

Those same people can resort to violence when the opportunity arises.  They are angry inside because they have not made peace within themselves and will always be a danger to someone who makes them feel like less.  You can't help them or change them but you can protect yourself from them.  Be proactive and be prepared.  Work to mend relationships and defuse harsh situations.  If someone else is doing it, then don't help!  If you fight with the pigs, you just get dirty.

This world is not set up for peacemakers so it's a hard job, but it needs done or NOTHING CHANGES.  If you're not part of the solution, then you're part of the problem.

The policeman was not suited for that job as his job history shows, so why was he even employed?  He should have been fired long ago.  My guess is that his mental attitude and the adrenalin of that situation combined to block out any sort of common sense that he might have possessed.  Why the officers around him didn't stop him or help the guy may be part of the same situation.  I doubt he consciously meant to kill the man but he did.  He needs to suffer the consequences of his actions as do the officers who heard and did nothing. So do those who knew of his violence tendencies and did not stop it long ago.

Now, a proper correction was negated by the violence of the mobs who did not let the justice system work.  One man's death created a situation where violence ran wild.  Those who are part of and support violence are a bigger part of the problem because they probably know exactly what they are doing, especially the looters and those who injure officers and others, and those who firebomb buildings.  They did all of that knowingly.

Which was the greater crime and which will help society as a whole be better?

If you don't like this situation, then become Proactive and stop violence right where it starts, in your own voice, at home and in your own community. Be a nagging thorn in anyone's side who will not help and come up with SOLUTIONS!  If you're not part of the answer, then you're part of the problem.

I agree. Give the Justice system time to work in this situation. Im confident justice will be served. You dont want the prosecution to screw up on a technicality. Also this cop had 18 citations. They didnt want to upset the Union. Public sector Unions vote majority Democrat all the time.  That is another story.

About 10 people were there

We drove by last night on our way home.  One was holding a sign that said F#%*k something couldn't read the rest.  One lazy a$$ laying in the grass and three or four little kids that just looked bored because they had to stand there.  Honestly the whole thing just made me laugh instead of bring attention to the situation.  But hey on the bright side they didn't loot or destroy any property.

We seen the kids and didn’t like that at all. But at least they were not destroying property!

What if someone came to them and incited them to riot?  Hopefully they would still be too lazy.:no:

There is a tremendous difference between protesting and rioting/looting. 

Anyone that condones the actions of theft and destruction is a thug also.  

I know some of you chuckle at my conspiracy theories, but I think that cop did this intentionally and was probably very well compensated for killing Mr. Floyd to incite this behavior.  He KNEW he was being videotaped. 

We were no longer caving to all the covid bs, and isn't #44 about to have his feet held to the fire for some of his past actions shortly?    It's all about smoke and mirrors.  Anything to disrupt the country and win an election. 

Ask yourself why anyone would spend a ton of money to get a job that paid so little and had so much stress behind it.  It's not for the money.  It's for the power.  Everyone that donates to campaigns has an agenda behind supporting their candidate.  The very quid pro quo everyone whines about with every one else.  If I owned a casino--you had best believe I'd be tossing my money behind a candidate that will make sure I get my way and that it's favorable for me.  They are all just puppets.  Every. single. one.
