Video from a bystander showed then-officer Derek Chauvin pressing his knee on Floyd’s neck for more than eight minutes. Chauvin and three other officers who were involved were fired, but many protesters say that’s not enough.

    Diversity is tolerable when the economy is good. Now with 20% unemployment and an economic depression, diversity will become Hell on Earth.

    These are riots, not protests. Not demonstrations. Riots.
    The organizers need to be held accountable for the violence.

    I just looked at the numbers. Cops have killed more white people every year for the last three years? Tell me how they are hunting down black people again? We are not a racist country.

    The reality is that the mayor, police chief, and the governor are worthless. The un-armed rioters burned downed how many businesses and exactly what were the fire department doing? Abandoning the third police division is nothing but a disgrace. Do you think the rioters are your tax base? America you are witnessing the death of America!

    It's ok for police officers to kill but if someone breaks a window or starts a fire we bring in the national guard. That is complete bullshit

    It is funny how the mugshot of the cop they arrested doesn't look like the guy that killed Floyd, they are saying his name is Chauvin (Chauvin——ist), his neighbors didn't know he was a Cop, and the autopsy says Floyd died of Cardiac failure.

    A government made by the people for the people. When that social contract is violated of course you’re gonna have protest.
