Why is it okay for white men to carry AR15s and scream in the faces of stoic police

without any reaction. Meanwhile black people are visited by militant police and fired upon with rubber bullets and tear gas for peacefully protesting the wrongful murder of yet another black body by police.

Itís so ridiculously obvious. Iím entirely fed up with the absolute worst among us being aloud to kill and starve and run chaotically amok of everything good and decent. I despise what is happening right now with every fiber of my being. My heart is ripped in a million pieces. Iím feeling such immense despair over all of the death. Although Iím not religious I have resorted to praying gods speed for the karma these soulless sub humans so richly deserve.
Fuck every republican and everyone else who failed to vote for Hillary Clinton. I honestly donít know how you people sleep at night, let alone carry on with your life.

1. The cops and the screaming gun-nuts are on the same side.

It's been that way since forever.

13. And the gun nuts and other people who

support these terrorizing cops are the same people who yell about a police state when asked to wear masks and practice social distancing.

Police state tactics toward POC is acceptible to them. Who else will eventually be considered fair game? Nobody is safe in a police state.

Cops are terrorizing people of color.

I donít know any other way to put it.

5. I am white as well.

And no, I just don't get it. Remember the Bundy Ranch stand off? If they had been black/POC the would have been slaughtered.

7. Yes. I remember thinking that at the time.

They threatened federal agents and were allowed to skate.

8. Did you watch Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon on CNN, tonight?

They were both quite emotional. Chris interviewed a witness to the killing. Once Lemon came on, he and Chris had a long discussion about the whole situation and Don really opened up about how it feels to be a black man and what they have to go through.

Cuomo will come on again in a couple hours. Don is on right now. I think the shows both repeat, but you may be able to get a video off YouTube or CNN.

9. I did not see it but I will look for the re-run.

I have been in a constant state of anxiety for 4 months worrying about my immunocompromised husband. To think about living in that state youíre entire life is very overwhelming. I canít even think about what it must be like to send your black child into the world for school or shopping or anywhere without melting down over the thought that police could murder them. Iím just overwhelmed by it all today. Itís all getting to be too much.

10. Another gripe I have, why are there so many people of color in

prison while whites are running around free for doing the same crime.

14. Maybe the people protesting the murder should be armed.

The treatment of the covidiots protesting and those protesting a police murder should be equal. Sadly it was not.

There's definitely a racial element to all of this IMO. And there needs to be new leadership with that police force. And retraining of all officers.

15. Because the screaming gun-fuckers gratify the racist Republican cult

Equally, the violent suppression of peaceful black demonstrators also gratifies the racist Republican cult.

And both of these feed the ongoing racist narrative that an armed and unhinged white asshole is less dangerous than a calm and peaceful black man.
