The people have every right to demonstrate injustice however they start to lose their cause when an hardcore minority start to incite riots.

Law and Order must be restored before minority interest groups lead an ignited crowd down the wrong road 

Police , Civilians who are legally armed to the teeth along with offenders only too willing to shoot on sight ,these incidents will only continue unabated

It's like the LA riots.

Most of the businesses destroyed were small businesses owned by locals.

How does trashing the corner grocery store help George Floyd?

From Minnesota, lived in or near Minneapolis most of my life:

There are no words to express the grief that I feel for the death of George Floyd, by the very people that are supposed to "protect" us. Murder chargers are warranted.

The riots, on the other hand, are another matter. We did not have riots when the Castillo shooting happened (another cop-unarmed black man tragedy), but peaceful and heartfelt demonstrations, featuring Black Lives Matter.

What people have noticed is that buses of people showed up within days, and there were groups of cars with no license plates. People in the area would not burn down the local, often minority owned businesses in the neighborhood.

Of course there are the petty criminals who use police distraction to break into places to loot.

I have heard rumors that the grenades, and other incendiary devices that have started numerous fires, were from white supremacist groups that want to blame the blacks for riots. Really doubt that our minority population has access to those devices. White guys seen throwing fire bombs at random businesses in protest? Really?

What is so disturbing is that they are setting fires at places all over the area now, a bank, a restaurant, a warehouse out of the way of anything in particular, and fire fighters can't even get to places to fight them. They are scattered about, sometimes not nearby any scene of protest. Families live in houses and apartments nearby many of the fires, can't get out for food and necessities, have to hide in the house and live in fear that the residential areas might be next. It is like some apocalyptic scene that some have described to reporters.

A group blocked a major highway for hours. What if the person that could not pass on that highway was a doctor or nurse trying to get to work in the major hospitals near the area, trying to save their grandma from Covid19? How many black lives will be lost, at the hospitals, because of a protest that involves holding people hostage on an interstate highway, so they can't get to work?

I am sure that our local protesters would not want to burn down their neighborhoods, and am just sick that outsiders decided to use Minneapolis as a battle ground.

George Floyd was a peaceful person, from all accounts, and would not have wanted this.

"I can't breathe" :::tears:::

*BTW The major news networks have not reported on the influx of outsiders, only local radio stations.

The subject is the riots in Minneapolis. Stay on topic, please, and start your own thread about the Nazis.

*Stop hijacking ALL the time
