Threads like this easily explain why deaths like this occur in the US. The apologists could form their own parade.
Not a single poster has suggested people in our country abuse drugs or resist an arrest. MOST people in our country know that. We have very few negative police interactions, those that occur are almost always brought on by someone unwilling to follow simple commands.
That doesn't appear to be a view shared by the thousands who took to the streets in protest last year.
Most of the people who took to the streets last year never heard of GF or gave a damn about him if they did. The majority of them were ignorant people like yourself. Stick to trying to cancel Mr. Potato head a$$wipe.
I'll add to this: the majority of people on the streets existed some where on a spectrum between [absolute ignorance of the details] <-> [uncontrollably emotionally-driven].
As a society, we need to get better at understanding the various phenotypes of our current population. We're always going to have a segment of society, existing in all economic and cultural stratification, that are going to be irrational and create unnecessary headaches. It is the responsibility of ordinary people to not give this slice of society credibility and certainly to not give them access to power in any form.
Not to understate it, they're bad people - there is no other way to put it - and you'll see and realize what I'm talking about when the burning begins again after the acquittal - watch for how they try to convince you what they're doing it right.
Also, your quick-to-emotions and confrontational daughter who made you pay for her social work masters degree is part of the problem.
But it couldn't be bad policing, could it?
