Protests are good but looting and burning is not good.

If people want change people need to vote people out that are causing division. Don’t understand destroying your own community.

I was very surprised to hear Trevor Noah's comments on them, he's usually a level-headed guy (from what I've seen).

I say tear-gas them all.

Protest = good
Riot = bad

There is a big difference between protesting and rioting.

There is nothing to riot about at all - everyone agrees that the situation that created this is a bad thing (apart from perhaps a few people wearing white tents over their head)

If some large amount of the population was saying this was a good thing and people were rioting against that, sure, a riot could make sense considering what has happened. BUT nobody is saying this is a good thing, so why riot?

Couple snipers up on buildings would probably stop this scum pretty quick. You probably only have to take out a couple of them before the others start running for the hills.

Or maybe a minigun

Never touched it in my life! Heck I've never even touched tobacco. I've had about half a bottle of wine though. But re-reading my post a bit later on (and after reading the main thread that is now at 39 pages) I stand by what I said. Everyone is condemning it so why riot?

3 policemen who did that was guilty clearly.. but burning off police cars = tax money, not even mentioning private properties + 3 policemen's fault should not be put on the whole system.. as long as there is a human factor there ll be mistakes.. and those ll be punished.. i dont know why but from the videos i feel like, some really protest but some got really bored in this quarantine and they look like they re trying to have fun and vent some anger as well..

imagine a photograph thousands of people lying on the ground in front of the policemen and the impact of it on media.. burning police cars tell a different story in my opinion..

and where are those special squads etc to prevent such events?

Iím not for rioting, but this post demonstrates a lack of understanding of the issue. If the problem is racial injustice, then it is impossible for the racial minority to ever effect change via a democratic process. By definition.

Out of curiosity, if every white person voted to amend the Constitution to make black slavery legal again, would it be okay for blacks to riot then? I suspect the answer is yes. If thatís the case, where does one draw the line where rioting is okay or not okay? Again, not saying itís okay in this situation, but might help to put yourself in their shoes.

I don't recall the Watts riots of the 60's as I was very young, I know they burnt the place to the ground and there was a lot of violence. I don't know if this kind of behaviour was going on. I do remember the riots after the Rodney King verdict, the conduct of the young people because lets be honest there are black and white folks participating so this isn't about race, but they are for the most part young with a phone out. This is now the instagram riots.....we are well and truly fucked. I know this is a big brother thing to say and it's really just musing, but I have to wonder how long the rioting/looting would go on if the cell network got shut down and nobody could post for likes.

I don't think I understand what you're trying to say. Are people not all equal under US law already? What legal course of action do you want us to take?

Excessive violence by police officers against anybody is already punishable by law. The bad guys got fired, an official investigation was started and they may end up with a murder charge and conviction. That seems like due process.

So what more can we expect? Are you referring to a change in mentality?

I don't think that's a very useful hypothetical. Slavery is a violation of fundamental human rights. The US would be in a state of civil war long before slavery would be re-implemented. For the sake of argument, let's assume that slavery does get implemented again overnight, then I still don't see justification for beating up random whitey, looting your local community's Target store or Merecedes-Benz dealer. You should be directing your anger at your tyranical government violating fundamental human rights (go burn down congress, I'm sure you can find bi-partisan support for that )

Hurting people, stealing and rioting are not easily justifyable in my opinion.

These aren't protest, these are radical left finance opportunists trying to destablize the country by having barbarist people from outside area enter a local community and destroy it.

arson, looting and protesting are separate activities...

They may add up to a riot, but not necessarily rioters. One could hope that the protesters will quickly learn how to avoid giving cover and creating opportunities for the arsonists and looters.

This.

I was watching the feeds for about an hour and 60 to 70 percent of the people in many of the shots, especially in the areas that had massive damage, were young white men.

There is something much deeper going on.

Support Riots? Hmmmm, how about Drug Cartel support? Or Radical Islam?

Ridiculous question...

Protesting is a Protected "Right"...

"Rioting" is lawless and criminal behavior and should be dealt with appropriately!

There is distinct differences between the two! And if you cannot discern the difference, then you have major cognitive issues! I'll agree that while protesting, the line is often very blurred, but people know exactly what they're doing when they cause property damage, become arsonists, or look to inflict violent physical confrontation upon "anyone"...

That's it... Simple!
