Saw the video and I just can't believe it. Once this is over and they complain that the firefighters weren't doing their job I hope someone shows them this video.
Someone just send in the military to put this down already.


Why are you lumping the protestors together as though one bad seed represents them all? And I bet you're one of those people who are like "not all cops are bad" etc

Meanwhile, thousands of other protestors demonstrate peacefully and without incident, but media ignores because that doesn't attract readers and viewers.

That's true OP, unfortunately you need an MLK or a Ghandi to settle things peacefully and with lasting effect. We don't have anyone like them at the moment.


You know what happened to MLK and Ghandi right...


You don't gotta be rich, if everyone that was at least middle class and up (around the world) pitched in 99 cents a month there would be dramatically less hungry.

They got killed. In exchange they were turned into martyrs, changed cultures, ended apartheid/segregation/jim crow, and became people others will read about long after you and I are dead and forgotten... I'd say that's a fair trade, lol.

Basically speaking most rioting is not as bad as the media tries to portray it as. Its much more low key and isolated than people think.


Yeah def, biased news reports tend to exaggerate it to the point threads like these exist. When will people realize that peaceful protests won't work anymore? I'm not excusing extreme violence but people like to throw around MLK as an example but they tend to forget that he got shot regardless. The anti-blackness in this thread is unbelievable


I wouldnt say the views expressed are as extreme as anti-blackness. But I would say people do tend to right out that riots do actually have positive things to come out of them. The modern LGBT movement entirely came out of the the Stonewall riots and alot of the riots in the 60s in both the Civil rights movement and other movements did change things for the better.

Nice job but I already know you have quite a few leftist views. How many bad seeds are you going to make excuses for? If they want change then vote the people have the numbers to get who they want in charge. They have the young men and women who could join the police force so why is it that all these cases the police force have almost no diversity in them? Personally I blame the gang culture and the us vs them mentality. I'm a minority and I place more faith in cops then in my neighborhood when I lived in Dallas. I know you have your own viewpoints on the subject and that's fine but try to see all sides before saying all cops are bad or racist.

rioting is a symptom more than anything, one cant blame the patient for showing symptoms, even if they cant help anything directly at least they serve as excellent indicators of problems.

retards..

Great.. further the stereotypes of blacks being violent and aggressive.

I dont know how destroying private property brings about social change, but what ever...

Every time I read news stories like this it always makes me tempted to start smoking again so I can get cancer and die quicker.

Its like everyone is slowly becoming an oxygen thief.

I really dont care if they destroy corporate business in the riots. Fuck corporations like mcdonalds for encroaching on urban areas were there is not enough produce stores and promoting a lack of healthy food choices in African American communities.

It's mob mentality one guy cut a hose so its very likely someone else will cut the hose to the point where it be useless.
