    To be honest, due to the spread, this is worse than the Rodney King riots. They're not as intense yet, but unless something happens to mollify or suppress the protesters, the only solution to the current situation is to let it burn itself out. Chauvin getting a murder conviction would probably go a long way to bringing the peace, or charges brought against the other three officers involved, but this is a pattern thats replayed across the country more times than I can count. And honestly, this time it feels like even a conviction won't be enough, especially since Chauvin's unlikely to be convicted of 3rd Degree Murder, and is more likely to eat the lesser Manslaughter charge.

    I feel like that won't be enough to assuage the fury this time. The population's become too informed, too "woke," and too frustrated in their efforts to create real change for the better.

    And then there's this.

    Chauvin's trial seems to be delayed, so I hope they are not thinking that letting things burn will let the case slide. Mistreatment, policy brutality histories and the effects of bad policies dealing with COVID-19 seems to fuel the anger.

    I wonder how they'll find a jury that's relatively unbiased

    Impossible. We all know how it will go in the end.

    Anyway, can someone enlighten me why El Presidente is now blaming Zimbabwe?

    Ok, let's take this in parts:
    1) I am absolutely not opposed to violent protest. People HAVE tried peaceful protests, and it led to nothing. Many of the current ones actually started out peacefully until the police came in. People with power don't let go of that power unless you somehow make them.

    2) Yes. I am absolutely saying that 63 million are white supremacists by virtue of complicitness, if nothing else - though I'd bet good money a pretty hefty chunk of them absolutely would do the same kind of shit the McMichaels did if they thought they could get away with it.

    3) You *are* aware, I hope, of the hypocrisy of trying to paint all antifa (more of a decentralised ideology than an actual organised movement) protestants under the worst light possible because of the actions of some (*if* those actions should even be condemned in the first place - see point 1) while condemning doing the same thing to MAGA people for defending, actively supporting, or being complicit with white supremacy?
    1. That's kind of the issue. I don't tolerate violence at all, at least not in protests. Why not try for a revolution then? At least violence makes sense if you want to seize something by force, not start looting shops, many of whose owners are small proprietors!

    2. This is logically impossible when many of those people were black (a minority, but they exist) and most did it out of disgust with the Democratic Party rather than open support for some of the more braindead statements coming from Mr Populus. There's a really big difference between supremacists and just standard issue, old age racists.

    3. I have a trouble with whoever's rioting. Even if I wanted to say ANTIFA wasn't violent, I couldn't! They, the alt-right Boogalunatics and all kinds of cray dumb retards are pretty much destroying buildings and shitting over shops for the sake of kicking a ruckus! If it was government property, I'd be fine since it can be used to pressure the government, but all burning a dude's data recovery business is going to do is piss him and every person he works with off and he'll take the state line over yours because the state didn't shit on his business without compensation.

    ETA: "[H]e’s ashamed of his past behavior that included yelling obscenities and destroying property"? Fucking hell, someone give baby his warm milk and tuck him in bed before he hurts himself in his stupidity.



    Yeah, I don't know how else to tell you this, but if you see a *police officer murdering a man right on the street and go unpunished* and your main concern is with property damage? You are absolutely a part of the problem.

    My main concern is the way the protests are hurting people and not leading to change because they never do.

    I see Trump is still bent on making Transmetropolitan real.

    We're now entering Straight to Hell territory, which in theory means we should be nearing the end. Unfortunately, reality keeps being stranger than fiction.
    As the size of an explosion increases, the number of social situations it is incapable of solving approaches zero.

    Tbh, these protests remind me a bit of the build-up to the American Revolution. Not that I think it will reach that point, mind. Just that I see parallels.

    The whole thing should be over within a few days. What we learnt from history is that the treatment of African Americans will never improve. They will be the stepping stone of America just like their ancestors when they are forcefully brought over to work as slaves.
