Here's an idea - stop murdering people, and the protests will go away.

Pretty simple solution if you aren't a fvcking racist retard.

Sorry. Didn't mean to murder you. It was an accident.

I'm in full support of peoples right to peaceful protests.



The video in the OP was a riot, not a peaceful protest.

Why are they fighting each other? Going after the cops would make more sense.

Because most of them don't even care about the protest and just use the event as an excuse to act like animals, knowing they won't be held accountable.

Because they have absolutely nothing better to do.
Most of them DGAF about the guy who was arrested, Mike Brown, Trayvon, etc, or how it impacts them/their loved ones.

Of course there are members in that crowd who hope their actions would lead to positive changes in the training and conduct of US police forces, and I am all for them. But at the end of the day most of these "protesters" are looking for a break in their boring daily routine and an excuse to fuck their already fucked up city even more. As well as lift their self esteem by thinking that they contribute to change by fucking shit up, moreso than if they just had spent the day at their sorry-ass job.

Edit: bottom line see Hbizzo's post.
