    America needs to be sanctioned for using excessive force and police brutality towards their own people.

    No one can expect to break down the barricades on the north lawn of the Whitehouse, and not be pushed back by the secret service. You riot and loot, you get the mounted police and police with shields and pepper spray- what do you expect? People act aggressively, especially around the Whitehouse, they're gonna get pushed. Break the law, go to jail. Don't take people's businesses away from them by looting and burning our cities down- we need them to recover!!! It's one thing to protest peacefully, and another entirely to support this anarchy and lawlessness. This has gotten absolutely ridiculous, and George Floyd would be ashamed.

    I hate how cringe white people are screaming black lives matter… Its a black protest why are white people involved in it? I respect their movement but why whites join them? Let them protest on their own for god sake! Leave em alone, those white people are just making this protest look funny and not serious…

    Don't compare George Floyd to Trayvon. There's a lot of misinformation and uniformed individuals here.

    Black people and White people protest.
    Black people see the Police and run for their lives.
    White people stand against the Police and take the lacrymos.
    The loop is complete.
