Ofcourse, those were just 'peaceful protests'. Bull****.And, FWIW, I dismiss none of Trump's illegal activities (once adjudicated assuch) regardless of my

support
for his policy goals.===I think that if you look back at the origin of this thread you'll findthat "horror" was Harry's choice of words, not mine. That said, Iregard any attempt to subvert a free and valid election, which thecourts have ruled, to be very serious. Hopefully you do also.The riots of last summer, and

the
resulting damage, are a totallyseparate issue. It could be argued however that Trump's inflammatoryrhetoric was at least partially responsible. Loose cannons rollingaround on deck can do a lot of damage. (please note clever boatingreference)If this was the first time cities burned, I might agree with you. Letssee if

you
blame Biden in a week when Minneapolis goes up in flames.

I'm sure that the Floyd family will donate a substantial amount
of the 27 million to rebuilding the destruction that will be done
in Floyds behalf.

I bet Crump took $13.5 million of it already.



Just for fun, let's take a perfectly healthy white cop who has never had
a drink or taken opioids or had a tough life and have a big guy step on
his neck for nine minutes and 29 seconds and see what happens...

Since there was no sign of trauma and asphyxiation in the original
autopsy report, nothing. He was just restrained.

I also pointed out, if he had at any time said "I give up, I will get
in the car" the whole thing would have been over.

If you fight with the cops or refuse to obey a lawful order from them
bad **** happens.
It is interesting that you and Wayne don't seem to have any trouble at
all with the cops shooting an unarmed white woman for trespassing tho.

===

It was much more than trespassing - more like breaking and entering
combined with assault or attempted assault. I firmly believe the cop
thought that he and/or members of congress were in danger, and they
probably were.

Bull****. She assaulted no one, and didn't get through the window.
===

I'm surprised that you are so quick to defend lawless behavior like
that.


I'm surprised you're OK with police killing an unarmed, defenseless woman.


===

Is a woman who is attempting to break into a secured area less guilty
than a guy?


Use of deadly force has nothing to do with guilt. It has to do with
the imminent threat to the officer and in this case being an unarmed
woman is significant.
