Why are people not protesting this and making George Floyd who was a life time criminal a hero? What happened to Floyd was wrong no doubt about it, but he is in no way a role model.

Do you not watch the news? There was a big march in North Minneapolis today calling for good citizens to take back the neighborhood and start turning in criminals.

If you have been around the Cities, you know there has been a 50+ year cycle of neighborhoods crying for police presence followed by complaints of police brutality, followed by cries for police presence, followed by...etc, etc, etc. It's been a viscous cycle.

Defund the police!
But no one means “defund” when they say “defund. IALTO.
Reimagine. That’s the word. They wanted to reimagine a 21st century police department.

Nobody is making George Floyd a hero. Instead, people all over the world have made him Exhibit A in their complaints about cops who routinely exceed their lawful authority and use excessive and deadly force in making arrests; who often use racial profiling in targeting people of color and other minority communities; and who almost always lie and try to cover-up their abusive and illegal conduct. The issue of racist and bigoted cops who abuse their authority and use excessive force in making arrests has absolutely nothing to do with why children are being shot and killed in America's cities.

I‘m not aware of any modern incidents where there is evidence of this occurring not resulting in prison time for the officer. Can you post some examples? Every other case I’m aware of seems justified, and grand juries, DAs, criminal juries seem to agree.

With your genius, i'm very surprised you haven't single handedly fixed the issue.
Genius is inclusion of you and your heartfelt passion regarding this issue. You truly do see all as your brothers!

Sure! I'll even treat you to lunch. IM me to set up a meeting with you and community leaders. They are waiting. You are the key to their voices being heard.

Is this thread referring to Charlie Johnson? Not exactly a child....but that doesn't make it any less terrible. Supposed to graduate from St. Thomas later in the day Saturday.
