Riots in Multiple States

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Riots in Multiple States

Post by MikeD » Sat May 30, 2020 9:35 am

This is very sad. Everything that can go wrong has gone wrong. People have nothing better to do amidst this dangerous pandemic, clashing with police at CNN headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, burning down properties, refusing to exercise social distancing, etc. These people have been given free money from the government; renters have refused to pay rent; the unemployed are making more money (relatively speaking) than those who are still working - the regular weekly state unemployment benefit PLUS another $600/week from the federal government.

The Police officer has been arrested for killing a black man while in custody. WHAT MORE DO THEY WANT? Apparently, they are still NOT happy even when the isolated police/black man incident had nothing to do with them! Now the country is about these unhappy protestors clashing with the police force nonstop, while the real silent enemy continues to benefit from further spread. Curfew orders have being violated. Now the police have to stay up all night enduring the protestors!!!

DO you see what is wrong here!!? These people have nothing better to do!!! Add your comments or gripes below.

Yes i see what is wrong, obviously you dont :facepalm:
....when the isolated police/black man incident
your fucking joking , right?

68 in dc was a riot
92 in La was a riot

In most cities these are mostly peaceful protests against white officers,(and the police force in general) Murdering blacks.
This is not JUST because of this most recent murder, but the final straw that seems to be breaking the camels back
Add in the past 2 months of curfews, mass closures, people out of work an stay at home orders...its just bubbling up

Just one, why did we lose the "thumbs down" button?

What more do they want? Maybe that it doesn't happen again and again, all over the country? Arresting one bad cop amounts to sweet f all.

Who is 'they'? The proliferation of police interference and ignorant abuse by the police has been going on for decades. Was just talking to my mom yesterday about some very minor incidents I was involved in that she never knew about, and 2 of her brothers were policemen. Yes, police have a difficult job (if done corrrctly), no doubt about it. But they receive a lot of training how to react to situations, all paid for by the citizens, so this example is inexplicable.

One positive is it makes the Cambodian police look like diligent competent professionals :?

I fall to see how burning down an Autozone and looting A target store help further the cause. Instead of being A people vs. the state issues, which it should be, it was quickly turned into a black vs. white issue. At this point the "protests" have been coopted by malicious actors whos only intent is to destroy as much stuff as possible.

A side note, blacks kill more blacks in America in one year than American police do in A decade. Where is the outrage in Chicago when 30 blacks get killed every single weekend over the summer by other blacks?

This isn't even citing facts on the disproportionate black on white crime rates as well as the amount of black men in USA who are consistently in trouble with the law. Look if you want to call me out for anything I have said here, you better provide hard facts because I will be.
