    Bingo.

    It's not a matter of politics, and it's got nothing to do with Trump.

    It's organized black street crime, and incompetent and ineffectual Democrat leadership.

    You hit the nail on the head.

    Wendy's. Were they going for the free straws or the ketchup packets?

    AJ, I find your post both humerus and with unfortunate timing.

    Just 6 minutes ago BLM said this...

    If your rules include you shooting our youth, you can't expect people to play by your rules
    https://twitter.com/BLMChi/status/1292725609794347009

    You see AJ, this started as a BLM event, over one black kid shot by a cop. If I did some digging, I'd expect he was no saint. And I wonder how many blacks killed other blacks just this weekend there?

    BTW, over the night I saw a car try to run down the police, 2 fat girls in a knife fight, multiple shots fired, and one security guard shot.

    Edit-I spent exactly 10 seconds to find out that the kid killed in the "officer involved shooting" was shot AFTER he fired at police.

    BLM is a criminal terrorist entity.

    The MSM took over 2.5 hours to even begin reporting on this locally.

    And mayor still hasn't issued any comment.

    Seems very dumb. They completely gutted a mall, broke into a tesla dealer, and even brought u-hauls in to make off with the loot.

    you have real equality. Just because you have equal opportunity does not mean you will get equal results. That takes effort on the individuals part. If you are poor and working a **** job, that is not going to change until YOU change it. Nobody is going to do that shot for you. It isn’t societies job, nor should it be.

    it’s not being said of whites, because whites are not burning down and looting cities. Black people are drawing fire, putting themselves in the spotlight.

    WE make it about race??? When you are waving around signs saying black lives matter and screaming about justice for blacks, black people have put the focus on race. Most people just want to see the stupid concept of race disappear, but politicians and activists just refuse to let it go.

    Its hilarious. BTW apparently the people who lived above the looting were peeing down on to the looters and throwing eggs.

    The locals are pissed.

    See? It’s not about race. White people can be ****ing idiots too, as shown by the white Antifa and BLM protestors. All races are equal.

    Your tacit approval is noted. "Acting a fool." These people are right now shooting at police whilst looting Walgreens of drugs. The Mall is being stripped clean.

    So to answer your question. Yes, the current actions of coordinated violence outweigh any consideration of historic brutality.

    The human mind is a here and now instrument, it by necessity focuses on the present danger and acts accordingly.

    The optics suck Superbad and your minimizing of the here and now reality is actually counter productive.

    It's a cruel world.

    haha, so let’s reduce the police budget, or “redirect” to some BS programs.

    I saw a video of a black female straight up swinging her fists at a white guy in a convenience store trying to buy coffee. He's backing up with his hands in the air and the asian shop owner is trying to stand between them saying please dont loot my store.

    Think of all the small business owners, already hit by recent riots and looting on top of the china virus.

    They are being utterly destroyed.

    Riots? What riots? Apparently, the only thing that happened in Chicago was the highly-competent mayor put up a fence to keep a bunch of gay dudes wearing banana hammocks off a beach.

    -pay no attention to that little "trending" kerfuffle there.

    I saw a video where the cops chased some people out of a store and as soon as they were gone, more looters ran in. Doesn't seem like there are enough cops to protect the "magnificent mile" or whatever it is.

    so the only way to end violent left wing terror is to cave in to their demands?

    i think not. We can’t allow terrorist...domestic left wingers or foreign, dictate how we run our country.

    The American people will stand up and force the leftist govts out in places like portland and chicago and demand laws be enforced. That will end this rise in leftist terrorist...much like it ended the last major leftist terrorist group, the Klan, regime of terror

    No-the cops in that press conference were bragging about sending in 400 cops.

    Everything I saw was them standing down, with the exception of when a car tried to run 4 over.

    They were able to chase the car down and break several of its windows before it got away.

    The police in these cities absolutely have the manpower and the equipment and tactics they need to quell these riots quickly and effectively. The only thing stopping the police from fixing the problem is incompetent and weak Democrat leadership.

    I would bet very few of those feral youth come from an intact two parent family, but nobody wants to talk about that.

    One lady was loading up her Cadillac Escalade with loot.

    Nine Chicago cops have been shot at the last few days. Some of the stores in the area were still boarded up from the last riots.

    He was VP for eight years and in the Senate for decades and did nothing about it. Meanwhile they blame Trump who has only been POTUS three years, so far.

    um..... maybe you could take it up with the folks who rounded up the slaves in Africa. They didn't seem to mind the income.... And come on.. "acting a fool"? Seriously? Folks got on social media to have a pop up looting session, burn stuff, and otherwise create chaos in Chicago. At least two folks were shot, and many more shot at the police in several encounters. This isn't justifiable in any way, so why would you?

    The weak leadership part is true, but I think the cops have been overwhelmed. These criminals text each other with the next riot location and quickly move from place to place.

    The veneer of civilization is very thin.

    This is why our foreign nation-building efforts were a joke, we can't even get civilization on the South Side of Chicago.
