If that was true, Episode 8 wouldn't have done Luke dirty, Toho would have never abandoned the 89/91 look or roar in the Heisei era and I'd be married to Kira Kosarin.

Well, I learned who Kira Kosarin was today.

The obvious thing though is the article seems to criticize Pelosi for being radical (heh) in the title, even though Pelosi criticizes Maxine Waters just a few paragraphs in. They have consensus however. While I would not advocate for violence, I think there we are at an impasse where they are clear problems that our supposed righteous legal system is not addressing, peacefully or otherwise. What to do then? Should Eric Chauvin get away with it where do we go from here as a society? What is the correct course of action when repeatedly heinous injustices are committed against people for committing no crimes/minor crimes? I think Maxine Waters is getting to that core, but because of her own rhetoric, and the rather tinderbox state of a recovering country, there are a lot of dangerous factors at play.

Good. We need accountability for police officers, and this is a step in the right direction.

Good. If anything, cops should be held to a HIGHER standard, not the other way around. They far too often get away with murder.

Imagine the amount of riots we would have in the coming days or months if Derek wasn't found guilty. It would've been the 1992 Los Angeles riots all over again. That made me glad he was found guilty. Don't get me wrong, he is a corrupt cop who deserved to be punished for murdering George Floyd, but as a proud patriotic American who loves this country and wouldn't want to live anywhere else, it angers me to see violent riots done by Black Lives Matter and Antifa nationwide. If Derek wasn't found guilty, that would've given BLM and Antifa an excuse to riots, loot, vandalize and harass people like what they did back in 2020. We just dodged a bullet. Justice was served and we won't see that many more nationwide protests and riots, at least for now. It's a win-win situation.

Guy never stood a chance. Of course he'd be found guilty. The BLM were already mobilizing ready for a riot, but people would let it pass calling it justice. Rioting and breaking into businesses and looting it's o.k for them but not for thee. Also it'd still be called a peaceful protest go figure.

They finally got what they wanted so who cares, No riots bad cop goes to jail win win.

BLM and Antifa were having peaceful protest for the most part. Others were showing up causing riots during those peaceful protest. As I'm sure you both know there is always a few bad eggs in every group,

And Goji89 why are you saying that like he was going to be found guilty regardless. You don't think what he did was a crime?

It doesn't matter what I think, he was found guilty by a jury of his peers. Meaning he commited a crime and was found guilty.

The only chance that he would've not been guilty of murder, was if he died of some other issue. However, pretty much all the medics and everyone involved instantly stated that it was very clear that he died from the officers actions. It's always been abundantly clear that he died of having his neck kneeled on for 9 mins. Ask yourself honestly, if it wasn't a cop doing that to someones neck, would you even question who caused the murder? The cop has been given much more resources and leeway and opportunity to explain himself for the unexplainable.

Riots aren't a good thing, violence isn't a good thing. But let's not conflate the issues.

Personal opinion matters a lot, but you don't have to share if you don't want to.

And "as a proud patriotic American who loves this country and wouldn't want to live anywhere else," what are your feelings on institutional and systemic racism?

I find it pretty skreeonking stupid to call out people for saying they love this country.

I am an unapologetic America loving God loving, God fearing man.

And it's skreeonking sad to see that whenever some patriot says they love their country they are assumed to not believe in anything else other than to be one of "those" conservatives or a Trump fan.

skreeonking pathetic.
