First most Cops are decent / yea ther some not so polite and very rarely a wrongful shooter. This is wrong and will add more tendsion and the unchecked gun violence in this country

But this the country we live in more divided than ever / threathened inside as much as outside withe the gowing disconnect between Govt / and the civilians,


I am not against Gun Control and do not know if this would have been prevented by Congress reusal for a couple of simple regulations such as No Fly / Cant Buy . The Terror watch list and the 3-Day waitb period. Simple no ban

And Gun Ownership should be like a Driver License you cant drive if you break the law / but you can own a gun if you have an restraing order or threathen somebody or dstart having mental health issues.

Next IDK what guns are used but do we need AK-47's / and if so why higj capacity magazines. It wiil be intersting to see how the Sandy Hook Lawsuit against Remmington goes.

But that being said The ongoing shootings shootings of Black people that are ?? seemed to get a pass Again a few Rogue police > That Baton Rouge shooting msde me cringe . A lot of you dont remember the Race Riots of the 60's that were all the place . 9/ 11 was scary but so was that

My thoughts and prayers go out to the officers who were shot and their families and friends. But really, shooting cops at an anti-police violence protest? That is beyond stupid because they're basically doing the same thing.

Honestly? While BLM does commit some act of terrorism I don't really see it as a united front, which is probably why such acts happen in the first place. It's not like MLKJ supporters didn't riot in response to his death and various other incidents. This feels like you're attributing an entire cause as an inherently terrorist one (And honestly, what cause inherent in its use of terror?).

Have you ever been to a BLM rally? I have. If not a terror group, it should definitely be viewed as a hate group.

(sorry for the tiny reply, I can provide a much larger one if you'd like)

What else do you honestly expect when you have two moronic people go up shooting police during what is supposed to be a peace rally. And it's funny because this was actually one of their few peaceful "peace" rallies. Until it wasn't.

I haven't signed the petition and don't plan on it, but I could do with an end to BLM. All good intentions aside, it's attracting the wrong crowd. The idiot victim crowd. A crowd of people that do stupid shit like this. And while this may have been the worst of it, it still shows you what the mindset of some of these people are, and it gives the entire rest of the organization a very shitty look.

The best part is that they accomplished little more than a few grieving families, and a populace that wants to label BLM as a terrorist group. I find the irony amusing, personally.

I'm disagreeing more with the group part than the hate part. Ofc, groups like Earth Liberation Force are considered terrorist, and they're quite leaderless and "disorganized" as well, much like Anonymous, so I think it may not be too far off. But honestly, I think it's a bit soon to judge it a terrorist organization with all the different aims. In other words, what do they really want? I don't think even that is agreed upon, whereas ELF's aim is basically to disrupt anything concerning animals, deforestation, and the like.

This could be considered an act of inconsistency among members, as there have been some (SOME) peaceful protests, but first I need to see what the criteria an organization must go through to be considered "terrorist" in the first place.

If the group found some decent leadership, they may be able to fix their current organization issues and turn their rallies into actual peaceful protests, instead of a group of people going under the peace flag while screaming "fuck the police" and other hateful slurs towards the government and the white population. Whereas all we've had so far is a disorganized group of young, delusional, world-star culture kids trying to be thugs (ex: baltimore and ferguson).

Instead of reaching the goals they say they've set out for, they're starting to take steps backwards in the racial gap and are beginning to give truth to many of the racist communities' current stereotypes.

I actually think you said it well, and I agree with it an to an extent. My opinion? Should we really debase the value of the word terrorist organist, instead of isolated terror attacks? Although, I must confess as I did earlier, I need to see what the criteria for an organization to be considered a terrorist organization. I'm not at all knowledgeable. It just feels wrong to label an entire movement that don't know what they want, much less how to accomplish it, as an "organization".

I signed it as well. I would like to see the group shut down, even though it would likely just be renamed. Now I will go watch something ecchi to make me feel better.

I do think there are some apologists around that enable such actions, and perhaps a few rabblerousers that encourage such acts. Hmmmm....
