    Why on earth are these idiots causing so many problems? What on earth is wrong with people my goodness! So go and loot stores to show them? How ignorant and not at all productive. This is what happens when you have a $740B military budget and $6B police budget and only $2M for education.. Such stupidity…

    Pure crime is having a force designated to carry the oppression, enslavement, deception, and murder for the wealthy and force you to pay for it.

    Never forget that Police are not empowered to be judge, jury and executioners!!! War has not been declared against freedom of speech. Sounds like the went looking for trouble based on a social media post.

    These are just "peaceful protests." Remember? It is hilarious how leftist politicians and other leftist elites change their tune when the RIOTS, I mean, "peaceful protests" reach their own back yards. Additionally, while the left is dismantling police departments, let's do the same thing to the security details for the leftist elites and leftist politicians. Oh? You don't think it should go that far? I thought, "Defund the police means defund the police."

    This was to protest police violence, it was not criminal.

    Here they go trying to brain wash people with the media again. Police officers shot at some kids who were having fun driving their parents car, siblings. Two of them ran while the other siblings remained in the car. The car began to roll toward the police officers and the police stared shooting at the car. The parents got angry at the cops and started yelling "those my children you shooting at" The next thing you know, this happened. They want to keep the protesting down since the earlier protest this year from George Floyd. So they are lying to you like puppets controlled by those with the money at the top! Police "Oh, it was a group of thieves" who happened to get together and by they way their black and they just happened to take the opportunity to break some windows of a bunch stores that day for no apparent reason to steal some stuff?!!!!! Sounds a little crazy. It's like watching that movie from the 80's called They Live 1988!

    so when police roam the streets murdering citizens its just business as usual but when the people dare to exercise their constitutional rights and voice their displeasure with the neo corporate police state its tantamount to domestic terrorism…i guess some pigs really are more equal than others.

    Unless they were armed with guns I think it was a peaceful protest.

    They did not loot there own neighborhoods they took it to the Northside downtown where mayor Lori Lightfoot protected with so many officers during the George Floyd protest this was payback for giving up on the south and westside of Chicago.
