    That's a reach.

    We don't see the cases where a black cop kills a black person or a white cop kills a white person. If it bleeds it leads, and lately they've added if it divides it leads.

    What you and Boy George get up to in your own private time is no business of CNN.

    And....of course it is sometimes fueled by hate.

    Those damn right wingers rioting, looting, destroying the city in protest of George Floyd's death/verdict. As you said, we know it's the right wingers who don't follow social distancing...

    The right wingers need to understand that taking out one's anger/rage on someone else completely innocent of George Floyd's death is not only wrong, but stupid. This is a bad look for those anti-social distancing right wing nuts!

    To their credit though, while they weren't 6 feet apart, they did at least have masks on.

    Makes me think of that movie Nightcrawler. It was a good one. Have you seen it?

    It wasn't consensual, you "escaped".

    Would you say the George Floyd incident is an "outlier" or the norm with policing in Minnesota? What is the protocol for body cams over there? There is a correlation with police wearing body cams and a decrease of incidents like this. This isn't surprising.

    I want to know what is going to happen to the idiot cops that just watched and let the cop just Colin Kaepernick right on George Floyd's neck. They should all be fired/tried in a court of law.

    By the way, just read there was body cam footage released. It was "heavily redacted"... smh...

    "A CNN reporter and his production team were arrested this morning in Minneapolis for doing their jobs, despite identifying themselves -- a clear violation of their First Amendment rights. The authorities in Minnesota, including the Governor, must release the three CNN employees immediately," CNN said in a statement shortly after their arrest.
    Journalists assert First Amendment rights to press freedom when covering protests in public spaces, and infringements are relatively rare in the United States.
    Looks like CNN turned alt-right! They are using the same "whine" and "cry" from the right wingers who wanted the country to open up earlier! Only kidding, a few of you will understand my sarcasm. :P

    I am not sure what you mean by the norm but Philandro Castillo happened here and the officer was not convicted. There have been multiple local incidents over the years that seem like they have treated certain people different whether it be due to race or not but I am guessing stories like those happen everywhere. This stuff is always the outlier at this extreme but it still can be a general thing people see happening to much where cops just use force/ignore the people and so on without real/clear reason. I think we need massive change and body cams are becoming the norm while years back they did battle over it a little. There is tension between the police/cities population in a general sense just due to their actions/history over time and multiple legal battles etc. but this isn't just here as Atlanta and CA now too have people getting out. Our country has an issue with the way out system is set up in general and this backlash is due to denial of the issue from some for a while.

    I am not saying Clinton is great nor am I going to say Biden is likely to make drastic change either but that doesn't mean I agree with the insane rhetoric/fueling/divisiveness and so on we see regularly on issues from Trump. He is the most disgraceful POTUS in my lifetime just on an individual human being level and how he encourages the worst/divides us so often. I would agree though that in many ways policy wise he isn't worse/often not different/corruption is normal in this country and so on at the top.

    As I noted at the time people also made fun of college spring breakers so it wasn't only right wingers being mocked, that was just the narrative some were mad about/felt the need to protect.

    I don't know why you see the right wing in general as this major victim or feel the need to post like this? This is part of why I often have been questioning you and so on it just seems like you have had clear political agenda this whole time focusing on things in this way.

    I don't expect much but I can still have basic standards at the same time and point out when they are broken. That is what I am doing is pointing out the obviously bad things. Just ignoring it because at this point you expect it isn't gonna help.
