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?

The Capital is "our" house, and is open to the public except for Sundays and certain holidays. As Justan points out, since when is attempted trespassing a capital offence?

You're starting to sound like what you accuse Trump of being.

Breaking and entering is regarded as much more serious than simple
trespass. And the mob, which she was a part of, was demonstrating
violent behavior and had already broken through other barriers. The
armed guards had locked the doors and were attempting to provide
safety for members of congress.

Try forcing yourself onto a nuclear submarine sometime, claiming that
as a citizen, it is your boat. Send us a postcard and let us know how
it went.

Shoot and kill an unarmed person breaking and entering you home in many states, and you'll go to jail. Oh, and she hadn't even entered. She was looking through a broken window that she didn't break. The fact that no other protesters were shot and killed is very telling. The cop screwed up, big time.

A nuclear sub has no public touring hours, and is hardly the same. Nice try, though.

Look, I don't agree with the actions the protesters took. But the cop shot an unarmed person with no evidence that she intended to inflict anyone any harm. The only reason DC didn't burn is because her skin is white. That's a fact.

Mobs take on a life of their own and bad things result. My maternal
grandmother, born in 1890, always had a simple explanation: If she
hadn't been there it wouldn't have happened.

Same with George Floyd. You're ridiculous, Wayne.


Ding, ding. We have a winner. If George had been home taking care of his family and himself,
being clean and trying to better his life, it wouldn't have happened.
Instead he was doing drugs, passing fake $20 bills and hanging out with
his pusher passed out and near death. Bad things happen to bad people.

One life was already ruined by his own doing. Now folks want to ruin a second.
It won't bring him back. Neither will the 27 million bucks.


George Floyd could have ended that encounter at any time by saying he
would get in the car.
