I suggest a reference to Tariq Jahan should be made.
Curtis Hayes has tried his version.

Trump's former Defence Secretary, Gen James Mattis has spoken out in support of protestors and denounced Trump as a threat to the constitution. It's a powerful read

Just a couple of bad apples. And about 50 more bad apples that watched it happen and did nothing. And an entire police command that thought they could get away with lying about it. So pretty much a whole dept of bad apples then

The president has said that protests following the killing of Mr Floyd have "dishonoured" his memory, while he has threatened protesters with violence and his re-election campaign has used footage of memorials and other demonstrations for a video titled "Healing, Not Hatred". That video was removed by Twitter following a copyright-infringement claim.

300+ examples of police brutality in the US protests.

It needs something bigger for this to change. I don't know what, only that it needs to be bigger.

The two scumbags who did this (pushed and punched a 75-year old man to the floor, leaving him lying in a pool of blood from a severe head injury) have been suspended from the force. The response of their colleagues in the "Emergency Response Team"? They have all resigned from the ERT en masse in a show of support of the two suspended thugs. It's not just a few bad apples, this is systemic in some - all too many - US police forces.

I originally read that as they resigned in support of 'the protestors'.

Rereading it made me do a double take.

It only reinforces what I have been saying earlier.

Burn it down --- literally. With fire.

Just leave the small businesses and innocent people out of it.

Obviously I would choose a better solution if there was one. But until somebody does come up with a better solution that it's petrol and matches all the way.

Sorry, edited it to make it clearer. Absolutely astonishing isn't it? And so brazen. This, and the brazen beatings in front of cameras, including beating TV reporters holding those cameras, is the behaviour of a gang of thugs that is used to getting away with murder. Literally

Those poor officers were "simply following orders"...

I doubt this happens every day, but they really know how to help their own cause.
