This morning.

Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA

A citizen journalist livestream from the end of a second night of rioting following the death  of George Floyd during a police arrest.

More as we get it.

      -this is what America is waking up to,no one cares about twitter, section 230,are they a publisher,is Trump orange and crazy,this right here is what Americans care about.

      -this can easily escalate and most likely will

      -the Feds pumped money into the system as a cushion,all that ‘free’ money is or has run out.

      -people are hungry,tired,broke and fed up, if soldiers (nat guard) start ‘shooting’ Americans in their streets and hoods,I’m leaving town for rural Maine near the Canadian border

        Remember most of America isn’t rioting.
        Whilst the George Floyd death video is shocking and there are genuine concerns needed to be expressed about police violence looting a 60″ TV set is not the way to go about it.
        Add the usual Antifa rent-a-mob into the mix and this could cause serious unrest.
        Time for BLM to show some serious leadership. Oh wait…

          Can’t believe that when all those heavily armed white people invaded a state legislature because they couldn’t get haircuts the issue of police violence wasn’t finally sorted once and for all.

          It’s almost as if opressive police violence leads to lawlessness on a wider scale. Yeah, and good ol’ southern boys been complainin’ about them outside agitators riling up the coloured folk since Jim Crow. Plus ca change.

            I’d say there’ll be around a dozen or so black on black murders in Chicago this weekend.
            There normally is most weekends.
            You won’t hear a world out of BLM.
            Prior to Covid-19 Trump did more for black people’s employment prospects than Barry did for his entire two terms.
            Police brutality ? It ain’t just white officers doing it.

          2. Nigel

            Why, it is almost as if citizens murdering citizens is something that is supposed to be adressed by officers of the law but there they are instead out shooting anyone black they see on the street and getting away with it and a child could see the distinction and understand the problem but you can lead an edgelord to water but you can’t make him think.

          3. Nigel

            (Oh and Trump obviously inherited from Obama an economy in healthy recovery after the previous Republican administration failed to prevent a global crash and recession but has now sucessfully squandered it, which is another sequence a child ould grasp but you loves debasing yourself for authoritarian liars in power don’t you?)

          4. Nigel

            I’m so glad you can spot hyerbole and can distinguish it as satire not to be taken literally, but a sarcstic illustration of reality.

          5. Nigel

            Actully, a ‘sarcastic response’ to a grim realty, rather than an illustration. Carry on.

            I know of a couple of journalists that could do with a short stint behind bars.

        To quote the great Prez, it’s a s-hole up there. Go to Canada near the Maine border instead.

    So in a a bit of a perfect storm in a teacup bobbing along in a real storm, Trump tweeted about sending in the military and shooting the protesters, but had the tweet flagged by Twitter as inciting violence.

        Sure, why not? All black people are criminals until proven otherwise anyway over there, it seems. Open season. Bang bang.
