George Floyd: How the USA's history has shaped today's police brutality

George Floyd's name is the latest in a long list of African Americans to die as a result of racism and police brutality throughout the history of the United States.

The BBC's Clive Myrie, who has reported from the US for nearly 25 years, looks at how a toxic mix of racism and bad policing has led to the most serious racial unrest in the US for many years.

Article XIII (Amendment 13 - Slavery and Involuntary Servitude)

Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction. affects 11

Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.   ratified #13

The word "except" should never follow a denouncement of slavery or ownership of another human being under any circumstance.

As I mentioned to a friend recently on this topic, how this time around it might actually make a difference.
I think now social media playing a huge role in how news is transmitted, expressed within seconds globally and nationally that the emotionally heightned generation of youth will most likely play a huge role in our future in turning this country around.
Also, the fact that majority of the citizens were homebound with covid19 they were watching more intensely, thus everyone coming out with protests, taking an active role.
So I am optimistic, it won't be overnight but I believe things will change.

I have to accept a lie. More officers of color kill their own than “whites”

I’m not even against those words I’m against burning, etc.

Don’t kill.


Edible
Upon waking up I thought I would re read our.convo from last night.
It is clear that I am coming from a prejuidiced heart prejuidiced against law enforcement

I left conspiracy out of the conversation
There is too much legitimate pain to cover it with conspiracy although I must warn you once more

I know Blacklivesmatter is funded by Soros and the Clinton's and Oprah
I know that it was formed to start a civil war
I know it's all  political  using the people as pawns
There is alot to know about Derek Chauvin where is the proof ?
Truthfinder? Has enough proof you need on Derek Chauvin to begin destroying your own life
Dangerous enough to shut my mouth
Unless you have the money or protection on this one you would be a fool risking your family all in the name of Fox News
It's not a game
I will say it once more you are being dangerous
Whatever you put out there on this is monitored
Edible be safe

Buffalo Police Officers Suspended After Shoving 75-Year-Old Protester

The protester, who was seen on video motionless on the ground and bleeding from his ear, was in serious condition late Thursday.

The man is seen flailing backward, landing just out of range of the camera, with blood immediately leaking from his right ear. The video shows an officer leaning down to examine him, but another officer then pulls the first officer away. Several other officers are seen walking by the man, motionless on the ground, without checking on him.

Mayor Byron Brown said on Thursday night that the man was in serious condition.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York condemned the actions of the officers in a statement late Thursday night.

[ . . . ]

“The incident in Buffalo is wholly unjustified and utterly disgraceful,” Mr. Cuomo said. “I’ve spoken with City of Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown and we agree that the officers involved should be immediately suspended. Police officers must enforce — NOT ABUSE — the law.”

I am beginning to think some want a riot to Justify killing.

Of course. Same as some want a riot to justify looting.

Thankfully there are more peaceful protestors and police with common sense than the fraction that are out for themselves.

D.C. Mayor Bowser has 'Black Lives Matter' painted on street leading to White House

The act was intended to honor protesters who had peacefully assembled earlier this week.

WOW.


More power to him.

It blows my mind how silent the conversation is surrounding Trump's piss poor treatment of peaceful protesters. An ACTUAL example of government overreach and example of tyranny as opposed to innumerable Covid 19 conspiracy theories.

But what dominates the conversation? Antifa and Rabid Liberals. Give me fucking break.

I can see Trump now in his old age 150 year old dictator of his own mind
His comb over grown out, past his shoulders,  platinum in color with bits of coloring hanging on,  still waxing the rest of his body
His skin faded orange
Talking  to himself about how he was "the  ladies man" of the century
Decrepid hunched over reliving how no one knows more than he did
No one has friends like he did
No one has EVER done more than he did
Living in the basement of  the Trump Tower
A baby monitor linked to his daughters ear piece
Melania in the penthouse
