Officers covering for other officers they know shouldn’t carry a badge and a gun is what led to the death of a black man in Minneapolis. I doubt there is any person in America that condones what the 4 officers did, especially the three without their knee on the guys neck who did nothing to save George Floyd. It was despicable act that damages the reputation of every officer. We can’t tell the good officers who signed up to serve from the ones who signed up to torture citizens.
Police need to do a better job policing themselves.
That includes locally!
All of the above is no excuse for the violence destroying the livelihoods of citizens. The people burning and looting aren’t protesters. The perpetrators are taking the focus off the real story.
Black Lives Mater conducted a peaceful protest last night, unfortunately they did it in front of an organization that was founded to exterminate the black race. Maybe they don’t know.
Contrast peaceful with this guy who claims to support Black Lives Matter:
Sonny Garcia was planning to run for the Bloomington City Council until he found out felons aren’t allowed. If violence erupts here, the police need to pay him a visit.
Maybe he isn’t smart enough to realize the people hurt in Minneapolis used to own businesses where people worked and shopped. When goods and services no longer exist maybe he will figure it out. Maybe the Secret Service should also be notified.
