    At this point it's just violence, murder and mayham and the right, left, trump, biden sides isn't the headline. Shut down the violence period and shut it down quickly.

    History shows us that all the violent understand is the credible threat of a greater power.
    Let’s let them see what happens when a powerful government and it’s police and military are focused on them in the pursuit of law and order!
    Millennials are not used to determined discipline. Their parents protected them from this at their own children’s peril.
    They will cave like a papier-mâché army when they encounter real grown ups.

    Thanks
    And it should be a huge story but I promise it will be suppressed so the more threads the better.

    I read the entire article. Nowhere did it say that the man was shot by BLM or any of its supporters. So, how do you know the shooters was a hater?

    Admit it ... you made a knee-jerk assumption. It could have been a cop who shot the man for some reason, or it could have been one of the white nationalists, like the Boogaloo Boys, who have been doing some violence in protest marches with the hope that the marchers will be blamed. Or it could have been one of the antifa knuckleheads not associated with BLM.

    (It seems even BLM is splintered. This was the first I ever heard of BLM757.)

    There's more where that came from, if you're really interested in the truth and not just confirmation of your bias.

    And then there's the 17 year old who killed two people in Kenosha, where he doesn't live, then walked down the middle of the street with an AR-15 strapped to his body. The police ignored him. Can you imagine how they would have reacted had he been black? He'd be dead!

    I'm not going to judge this event based on your scant report from a foreign source. More details are needed.

    It seems that the only exercise we're getting during this pandemic is jumping to conclusions.

    It didn't say he was a racist, said he was a white Trump supporter. He got shot for that unless the video is leaving something out. That's racism at it's finest but not on his part.

    Uphold local, state and federal laws would be a start. Currently Portland's prosecutor is simply letting people go, enabling the problem.

    Having the will and objective to coordinate with local, state and federal offices to gain the manpower and resources needed to stop the destruction and violence.

    Make laws for this type of violence harsher. Much harsher.

    Losing control of your city puts law abiding citizens at risk. Gaining control can be done if politicians are on the side of rule of law.

    Portland is such an example of liberalism run a muck, ....no right wing protesters are needed to fire things up. Left wingers just enjoy this type of destruction and are enabled by left wing politicians.

    I suppose, the way to stop the violence is to vote in republicans across local, state and federal offices.

    This situation is not out of control, it is being controlled and directed to further a political purpose. Most of the people involved are just useful idiots and would stop if the ringleaders were arrested and put in jail. The DNC is counting votes and they expect these groups to vote.

    Maybe if we just opened the damned schools would take most of them off the streets?

    I have a real flash for some. We still don't know what BLM wants. The message has been totally lost. It's hard to grasp a fuzzy feeling for this cause when everyday more police shootings, more burning of stores and buildings, politicians turning a blind eye to the chaos and not backing up their own law enforcement. The message that seems to be coming out is "No Justice, No Peace". How do you get that " Defund and Abolish the Police". Is that it?

    The BBC is probably the most respected news source in the world. I’m sorry that if it’s not American then it is of no value to you because US news sources tend to be quite poor. I did not make this report. The BBC did.
    I admit nothing.
    And one might also remember the 5 year old white kid who was shot in his own yard by a black man right in from of his sisters and how that story has completely gone away while we focus forever on this nut job in Wisconsin who has already been arrested and will be tried and certainly convicted.

    The racism comment from me was intended to be sarcastic but I think we will see more killings of people thought to be racist in this insane climate we are allowing to develop.

    Well, I think a wide range of people support BLM, and the most dangerous are violent sociopaths.

    But the umbrella is wide; this is necessary if they are to retain and expand their power.

    BLM is a fig leaf.

    The real issue is that the duopoly continues to impoverish and disempower the populace, and the populace is lashing out.

    In this instance, the Democrats took a booming economy and crashed it with draconian lockdowns.

    These are the Democrat Lockdown Riots.

    And they've actually morphed into something far more serious, but I'm unable to speak about this, at least for the time being.

    huh? This is the Donald era, and so this is his economy that is crashing and burning. Really, lol... he lowered all kinds of taxes so companies were making massive amounts of profits. All profits went to the share holders so the rich got richer. So the money is gone, and they can't cope with the losses. What else to do than to fire those hard working joe the plumbers who made the profits?

    I'd be interested to hear more about this. You're clearly Right yet you acknowledge that underlying stresses and tensions are firing up the protestors.

    Normally the Right just go the usual line of lazy people wanting a handout...

    (I don't necessarily agree that it's all covid, but still interested)

    It is reported widely in the US.


    Nowhere does it say he got killed by a hater.
    The guy could have been killed by his fellow buddies for all you know.
