  • I hate to admit this but there has been a lot of protests in America. This mayhem will continue.

  • You would think so, and I can't imagine that this will be allowed to continue for much longer, not destruction on this level.

  • I think it will calm down gradually, but police forces across the nation should be taking notes and reevaluating all officers and policies. We have to shrink the gap between police and public, or else more and more problems will arise.

"I can't imagine that this will be allowed to continue for much longer, not destruction on this level." - How do you see not allowing?

If by protests you mean thugs harassing cops, destroying property and harming people than I hope not. Even the other protesters who yell at random cops, Block traffic ect should quit their shananogans, get a job and stop complaining about thugs getting shot for charging cops.

@Dilara - Its very hard to get a job in areas where unemployment are over 50%.
Dilara says2015-05-01T10:47:08.7369482-05:00
And that's not my fault. So my property shouldn't be destroyed and I shouldn't be hammered to death for it. These thugs are a plague to socioety.

"The ni**as don't have permits and they've taken the bridge" - The Day of Outrage. How many more Sonny Carson are there today?

@Dilara - If you are responsible or not, social change happens. Ignoring it does little to change the unfolding of history.
Dilara says2015-05-01T10:51:16.9175135-05:00
These people don't care about social change they just want to destroy things and bash white peoples skulls in with hammers simply for being white
TBR says2015-05-01T10:52:26.0342862-05:00
It makes little difference that you think that. The question is about tipping point. Are we there or not.
TBR says2015-05-01T11:12:09.1913557-05:00
A little music for everyone, perhaps a theme for the coming unrest. "Blood to the concrete, tears to soil And here's another word to make the other man foil War, raised on your planet to a caveboy oppressor Great one sends the aggressors Thought we weren't comin but it seems you made an error Wrench in the mill work, systematic terror has arrived" --- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDOMjhhUxWM
Dilara says2015-05-01T11:20:00.9065419-05:00
If the tipping point means that a bunch of losers are gong to block the roads, disturb random People, and that thugs will kill people and destroy things than no.

Dilara, I would suggest that you can't trust what the media has been showing, as they missed a large portion of the violence Saturday, in favor of the White House Correspondents' Dinner. Then, when they have not had action to broadcast, they have resorted to reshowing the same violence from a small handful of radical protesters. These radicals are not the norm in the slightest. Finally, there might not be a protest if the officers were punished appropriately and swiftly.
TBR says2015-05-01T11:29:21.6877247-05:00
@Dilara - What makes you think you can say "no" and it has any effect? This is like taking a band-aid off. You can scream "no" but it's going to happen.
Dilara says2015-05-01T12:23:51.3111995-05:00
The media didn't report on what a lot of the protesters have done because a lot of those things don't for their race baiting narrative. The murderer of zemir begic, a 32 year old bosnian American, by a group of black and Hispanic teens who and previously yelled "kill white people" and gone to a michael brown rally wasn't reported on the mainstream american media. I know I can't control what these idiots do but at least I can share information that will deter people from associating with the "Black lives matter" movement witch honestly is a complete joke. This movement ignores facts about the cases it talks about.
TBR says2015-05-01T12:40:37.6430119-05:00
The message of "Black lives matter" is... Well, isn't it just about the barest of requests?
TheHappyReaper says2015-05-01T13:32:04.5013865-05:00
Why do you refer to them as thugs? Is it easier than calling them people?
Dilara says2015-05-01T14:06:23.0413777-05:00
I refer to people who burn down 16million dollar nursing homes, throw rocks at cops, hurl store owners from their stores and kick them and stomp on cars as thugs because they are thugs. I'm going to call them what they are. I won't be sugar coating their actions or making excuses for their violent Behavior.
TheHappyReaper says2015-05-01T14:09:01.6382981-05:00
I don't condone humanity's stupidity either, but I still call them what they are, people.
TBR says2015-05-01T14:54:14.6636952-05:00
It's easier to dismiss terrible issues when you just lump them all as thugs
Dilara says2015-05-01T21:50:09.6996421-05:00
And it's easy to dismiss violent actions by not referring to the people doing them as what they are. Thugs.
TBR says2015-05-02T12:14:42.1902566-05:00
And the non-thugs? What if them?
Dilara says2015-05-02T15:34:00.7419694-05:00
The non thugs are just people unless they are harassing cops at protests. In that case they're idiots.
TBR says2015-05-02T15:36:03.8016918-05:00
Any chance you can see them as American citizens with a valid grievance?
Dilara says2015-05-02T17:10:41.8083423-05:00
There are plenty of things for Americans from all ethnic groups to be upset about but no one should burn down nursing homes or hammering people to death. Since black on white murderers are 4 times more common than white on black murders (fbi expanded homicide date table 6) should white people be 4 times more likely to riot over black on white murderers than black people are to riot about white on black murderers? (but in Freddie grays case 3 of the cops who participated in his arrest are black). And the family of Freddie gray asked for no protests the day do his funeral but that was the day the rioting begun so those rioters did not care about Hal family or about getting justice for him. They are a bunch of violent worthless thugs and that's it.
Varrack says2015-05-02T17:18:09.0120744-05:00
Depends on if a cop shoots a black guy this summer. The probability of the media picking it up is high, but those types of cases are not very common so..Maybe.
Varrack says2015-05-02T17:23:52.9028832-05:00
Actually let me put a media spin on that - "aggressive white cop shoots unarmed black teen" yep. Just glad I don't live in an urban area so I can keep my house if something happens.
