Black and Latino men.

12 complaints all closex.

It begs the question, why wasn't he terminated long ago?

Answer... he is white. They were not.

Where is Dotard donnie on this?

Crickets...

Johnny B. Goode said...

Ms.Shaw, is there a difference between a protester and rioter?

Dave Miller said...

18 prior complaints against the man.

6 against another involved officer.

2 other officers standing by as Floyd pleads for his life.

No one moves to stop this.

Even Sean Hannity sees this as wrong. Hold on, I think a pig just flew by my window.

The Honorable, Esteemed And Distinguished Judge Dervish Sanders (A High IQ Individual) said...

Who is Derek Chauvin? He is a murderer who belongs in prison for the rest of his life. He must not have been aware he was being filmed? Otherwise I don't know how he thought he could get away with straight up murder. Maybe he will? Given that he has not yet been arrested.

Leave it to the WYD trolls. JBG is more offended by the people who riot because of murderous injustices than the people in blue who commit the murderous injustices.

Also, JBG has nothing to say about a POTUS who threatens to kill his own citizens. That's the absolute mark of a lawless dictator.

As MLK once said: "A riot is the language of the unheard."

If what you posted is what JBG said he didn't say anything except there is difference between protesting and rioting. Rioting in this case is an opportunity to loot and burn.
Trump did not say rioters should be shot he just said rioting could lead to shooting and that happened.

RN, Trump did say this is a tragedy but he will not comment further until the investigation is complete. This is totally the reverse of a president who I cannot name who within minutes condemned the police on three different occasions. Of course he was just stoking the fire.

Dave Miller said...

JBG... yes there is. It was rioters who mobbed Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1921 sending 100's of black people to hospitals and graves in the worst race riots ever in the history of our country.

The protestors in Minnesota have killed no one and have not demonized a single race. When they were peacefully protesting, they were antagonized by law enforcement officers.

Shaw Kenawe said...


There's your answer, skud. Read what Dave responded to JBG. You obviously don't know this country's history of killing African-Americans just for the pleasure of it. But that is America's history.

The cop who had his knee on Floyd's neck heard him begging for his life. That cop was Floyd's judge and executioner. How can anyone who cares about what America stands for NOT be outraged?

All you wrote about is the rioting and the damages. You said not one g-d word about another African-American murdered by the police in a time when Ahmaud Arbery was shot and murdered by two white vigilantes in Georgia, and when an male African-American bird watcher was threatened with having the police called on him (a death threat in today's mentality) for asking her to leash her dog.

And of course, as per your usual habit, you had to somehow bring up Barack Obama.

You need to peddle your both-siderisms over at the Mother Ship, but according to Dave, even THEY are becoming sick and tired of Trump's disgusting behavior.

Shaw Kenawe said...

Derv He's been arrested.

Shaw Kenawe said...

skud Do you remember Dylan Roof? The white supremacist who murdered 9 African-Americans in their CHURCH?!

Here's something you may not know: After slaughtering NINE PEOPLE the cops gently arrested him, and even bought him a hamburger.

George Floyd SUPPOSEDLY (he was not charged or convicted of ANYTHING) forged money or a check or something. And the white cop killed him instead of putting him in a squad car and taking him to the station they way a lawful police force would act.

Please tell me why those two people were handled differently. PLEASE.

And do us all a favor and don't bring Barack Obama into the conversation.

Waiting...

Skud, after reviewing the videos, there is more than just one, only a MORON ir a RACIST would fail to recognize the "police officer" acted TOTALLY inappropriate and in FACT cayse the death of a man of color. You can take your pick as to wether you believe Dotard donnie is a MORON or a RACIST. Me? I say he's BOTH.

skudrunner said...

As a society we should be outraged by what happened but is burning a looting small businesses the way to show our contempt for the system of justice. Many of the businesses looted and burned were minority owned and will never recover. I do realize you have no use for small business but this is a shame and burning them down is criminal and has little to do with the incident other than provide an excuse to loot and riot.

Rev, the Tulsa riots were 99 years ago and it was a massacre. I lived in Tulsa for 25 years and it is a great city that for the most part has moved on. I realize there are some who cannot look forward only back.

Ms Shaw, I am glad you recognize who I was referring to about speaking before he had any facts, something he did often. There are bad cops just like there are bad everything. Do you know how many Native Americans were killed by white soldiers and yet no riots, guess according to RN they are not of color. How did the cop stay on the force in such a liberal city. The FOP went to bat for him and the DA decided to look away from his history. BTW that happened to be the former presumptive VP klobuchar.

Lets turn this senseless murder into a political opportunity.

When Colin Kaepernick respectfully took a knee during the playing of the National Anthem, trump called him an s.o.b.

Instead of inviting him to the WH to talk about black Americans being murdered by bad cops, trump did that.

This is all on trump. He’s a miserable failure as a human being and POTUS.
