    Saw all of these, and also another video where a cop pulled a black man's face mask off for the purpose of spraying him. Another video of people getting paint gunned on their own porches.

    Other videos of cops using rubber bullets on the media, another video of an older black woman who was shot in the head with a rubber bullet at close range.

    The US is in shambles.

    And the band played on.

    It's almost like there's out of control rioting going on, or something.

    What's that have to do with people getting attacked on their own porches?

    What's that have to do with people standing with their hands in their air and still getting attacked?

    What's that have to do with the media getting pelted with rubber bullets?

    The whole thing is really just sad and scary.

    Two groups of people who feel they have no choice but to turn to violence to defend themselves.

    for some reason i doubt there's a ton of overlap between the gun crowd and the crowds protesting this but i see your point. still, i think we all know what would happen to anyone who stood up to police with any kind of weapon right now

    Agree, I understand the point of the post but I don't understand how anybody thinks this would be better if everyone had a gun.

    I feel like this is incident is more accurate representation of the feelings of most cops and most protestors involved in this.

    Yes, I’m a police officer. But I’m also an American citizen, a husband, a father, a son, etc.

    What happened to George Floyd was a criminal act, a completely avoidable travesty, committed by a garbage human. I see that. Every cop I know sees and acknowledges that, as well.

    I understand and agree with the outrage, I support the people demanding justice. I want justice, too. However, throwing bricks and bottles at cops, throwing Molotov cocktails into occupied police vehicles, at people who had nothing to do with this, simply because they’re cops gets nothing positive accomplished.

    It’s a shame that in 2020, we as an American society are back at this dance, doing the same old two step. We’re better than this. I want the world my son grows up in to be better than this.

    the same thing happened near me in Schenectady

    this should be the response. there's no looting when the police are listening

    on the otherhand, someone drove a semi through the protesters in Minneapolis just now

    Man, I hear you, but you had colleagues run folks over with SUVs yesterday. Look at that laundry list of links BBBE posted. That's what you're up against. You haven't got a few bad apples. You've got bushels - law enforcement shooting riot control mechanisms at the media, at peacefully protesting crowds, at civilians. I don't think every cop acknowledges that Chauvin was a scumbag, because the reaction to protests against police brutality has been record amounts of police brutality. Sure, there's a confounding series of factors in the folks who came out to loot and riot, and frankly, in the "very good people" camp who came out with the sole intent of sowing chaos and creating strife.

    I'm guilty of this as any of us, but it's just not enough to clutch the pearls and act like we're supposed to be better. We're not.

    No. You're missing the point. You think police are acting this emboldened if they know any of these people were armed and there is a risk of self defense or retaliation? Walking down the street forcing people into their homes and shooting at them? Don't think so. It nips it in the bud before it even starts. Notice how the gun toters showing up in Michigan weren't assaulted by cops in riot gear...

    Not to mention, the point of the post was more geared towards if cops can do this, who's to say they can't do more that does warrant a stronger resistance?

    Take your money (taxes) and your guns (defense). Two basic steps to being put under the government's heel and losing basic freedoms. Between some of these covid lockdowns that have been bordering on unconstitutional and police literally fucking people up in the streets and their homes, I don't know how much more of an example is needed before it's too late. More government control is just going to feed the beast.

    Being armed with cameras is going to be measurably more effective than guns. The only thing guns would accomplish right now is escalation. Cameras document, which won't stop this behavior now, but will stop it when laws can be rewritten and police codes rewritten in the months to come based on exactly the evidence being recorded right now.

    Man, the whole damn country is armed. We probably have more guns per capita than meals. You mean to tell me that a significant subset of these protesters don't own guns?

    Maybe they just chose not to bring them because bringing guns to a protest is like waving a giant target at yourself.
