Once the details of this police shooting is known, what is your opinion of what went on in the immediate aftermath of riots and mayhem? What do you think is causing this?

Great observations. In this particular case, I believe crime is the main factor. BLM should have no place near this case. There are other cases that justify peaceful protests, this was not one of them.
Agree! They come off as complete hypocrites because they never say a word about black on black murders. Chicago records thousands of murders year after year, but they don't matter? Dr. King's peaceful protest strategy is the only way to improve this
BLM exists in response to police brutality. Presently, it has no other function, nor should it. If peaceful protest is so effective, why is the U.S. spending over 500 billion for WMD's? Only the sheeple view self defense as a crime.
Peaceful protest has worked as example of MLK, and Nelson Mandela in South Africa and other places...
BLM should be focused on teaching inner city people to act right. Abide by the law, get married before having children, at least practice safe sex, get rid of gangbangers and drug dealers. Then the cops will magically disappear.
Greg many people old as I am, heard of Charles Manson who was a criminal and who led what became known as the Manson Family, a commune in California in the 1960s. He manipulate others to kill for his pleasure. The conversation don't need him!
Kenny, that is right. And he wanted to start a race war. We don't want that. But it sure is coming close to that if people keep flying off the handle. My reference to him was that what is happening now would make him smile.
You are free to believe what you wish. But ask your self this, who is being hurt the most by this act of violence? What does BLM want? If you think asking the qustion is racist, I feel sorry for you. You have no understanding of what racism is.
The "defense" budget for the U.S. Military in 2015 was 597 billion dollars! Obviously, a lot of powerful people believe that violence is the answer. It should be no surprise that the powerless feel the same.
Jack,if you've read Ronnies answers you would know he says everything &everyone is racist bar nothing(except of course he who is the biggest bigot of all) so it's not even worth engaging him,unless maybe u can get some of what he's smokn.
What BLM doesn't understand is that if you don't break the law, the police won't bother you. They're in your neighborhoods because so many break the law.
BLM casts itself as a spontaneous uprising of inner city frustration,but is,in fact,the latest most dangerous face of a web of well-funded reds organizations that have been agitating against America f/decades.Google"reds exploiting blacks"
It is amazing to me how so many smart people can be so easily manipulated again and again. You would think, after 50 years, they would learn to spot the charlatans...
In my opinion BLM is just the opposite of white supremacist like KKK or the Nazi movement.
Tiny Bro, You remind of the guy (or girl) who was never smart enough to get on the debate team. All u can do is sling mud, being unable to challenge a serious argument. Respond to the argument I raised, or get back on the short bus.
Well Jack, how many is that? Tell me so I know to stop when we hit three. 2 more to go? ;)
The epigraph before your comment is absolutely perfect. The hubber comments about how democrats, affirmative action, and George Soros want to keep blacks in perpetual poverty would be laughable if they weren't so sinfully sick and sincerely sad.
I don't understand why anyone sympathizes with these people. It's insane. The "victim" may have a rap sheet miles long, and point a gun at cops, but so what? The cops are the bad guys, right? How dare they try to enforce the law!
I agree, and I also believe that Poverty in these Urban areas is the real trigger for these blks rioting. They have nothing to lose& they don't like businesses because that means jobs&money. dem party want their vote,so they give hand ou
You got it right! The poverty is all a direct result of decades of liberal Democrat Party leadership&policies which by design keep them in poverty. Just look after 8 years of BO all the black statistics have gotten worse,he doesn't care
Blaming one parties politics over another's is the old Divide and Conquer agenda, its pointless because then you miss the big picture and become a victim yourself. Be a solution not a victim!
What do you think is the picture?
No one is blaming anyone.It's the facts,if u don't face up to the facts,which the liberals never do,the same mistakes r repeated decade after decade resulting in what you have in Milwaukee,50 yrs of"progressive"rule & policies Want more?
Control, by manipulating the public to do what they have been conditioned to do, play the role of the victim, point the finger at others, when ALL the answers are within.
Create a new paradigm within your heart and project that energy outwards!
What, and sound and behave like a new age wacko? Good luck with that Somethg.
We can't even get the congress and the president to work for the people, what are the chances of getting people to act for other people?
The misconception is that it doesn't need to be a group effort, although would be nice, we can do this individually. Go through your entire day projecting positive energy to all in every situation and it will snowball. Positive energy feeds itself!
Yes positive energy is destroying terrorist groups throughout the world, you see them every day dropping their arms and preaching peace. world poverty is disappearing because of the simple principle of positive energy, it's so simple.
Sarcasm is a form of denial, fear and playing the role of the victim. Positive energy isn't a weapon of destruction, it is way of giving and loving unconditionally. Their will always be those that fear change and embrace their conditioning.
There is no such thing as positive energy,u can't measure or define it.U are talking about a positive attitude.A muslim suicide bomber who is thinking positively about going to heaven & getting 72 virgins,doesn't result in love or peace
Somethgblue, if it is not the policies of Democratic party in these cities, what else is there? It is revealed recently that Soros is calling the shots with the DNC and influencing policy domestic and foreign. What do you say to that?
I've deleted some comments. Please keep debate civil and follow the rule of 3. If after 3 back and forth, just agree to disagree and move on.
Bravo Jack, it's that positive energy, it really works! :) OK, I apologize, now go ahead, delete this too, I just couldn't let it go.Haven't had that much fun in a while!
This incident proves that the race card is a red herring. The apparent goal is to produce social unrest for the sake of agitating the country. It is like when Mommy is on the phone, the kids go crazy.
This kind of stuff must make Charles Manson smile. He probably feels now like he was just way ahead of his time. Greg.
Unfortunately, I think it makes a lot of people happy. sad.
This is kind of Manson's Helter Skelter.
Yes, but who is this Manson?
Look up Charle's Manson. The Manson Family are the ones that killed Sharon Tate. It might interest you. You must be to young to know him.
I live in CA, I know who Manson is, but I was asking who is acting like Manson today. You said it was like Manson so I assummed there must be a figure that is orchestrating it.
This should make Manson smile because it is looking like the Kelter Skelter he was after is what I meant.
When we stop talking about race war, the problem will half. This is an excuse to extend ownership of large gun stockpile. There is only one human race - divided into ethnic groups. So how can there be a race war? We would be fighting with ourselves?
Kenny, do you know who Charles Manson is?
Trust me, they don't need a reason to hate white people.
When people say stuff without thinking it betray naive minds. Flipping the coin to talk about hating whites show ignorance. You are ignoring the facts of history. It has never been about whites being hated but about white oppressing and killing black
Tell Archie Bunker I said hello, and give Edith a big hug.
Florence, don't mind him, there is one in every ..., well in his case one in every 300 million people. Just hold your nose until he's gone.
You really is ignorant of history, or just plain blind to what you Europeans - the so-called white race did to the Africans. To deny the facts of history, you have committed murder of insanity. Africans put themselves in chains, boarded ships?
Kenny--please. I am so so sick of this "I'm oppressed crap" it's ridiculous. There's a reason police patrol black inner city neighborhoods. When was the last time you heard of a White drive by?
Another bigot spilling vile and hate! Your article should be given to the police. Only blacks are being killed and the police face no action. The justice system always favours the cops! This is not black on black, white on white it is a human issue!
Sounds to me someone is bigoted against white people and the cops. Are you a BLM supporter Kenny, because if you are you are either a socialist/communist bent on taking down America or you are they're sucker. Google "Reds BLM" first hit
I think welfare and Affirmative Action did them in. Made things worse.
I agree, it certainly didn't help them. Today is the proof.
Only blacks on welfare? What is the percentage of blacks on welfare compare to whites? What a way we use these private mediums to express bigotry and hate? Rioting is wrong. A principle in chemistry, the greater the action, the greater the reaction.
