ANTIFA is designated as a terrorist org, anyone associated with the group like ABC news and Twitter and Fast Company and Hollywood Celebs, could be prosecuted under the RICO statute.

Again, firing is not enough! Abuse of power is punishable by law! Prosecute them 📣📣📣

They use forces like that, cause they know the people can not do a shit! Cops are cowards with guns!

Great!

Atlanta mayor on Trump: 'He should just stop talking''He should just stop talking': Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms rebukes President Donald Trump's rhetoric amid protests after the death of George Floyd, saying the President 'is making it worse' and is stoking racial tensions How is stoking racial tensions? By saying that the thugs that are looting need to be stopped? He’s very right about that. The only ones stoking racial tensions are the media Trump should start leading.

Don't expect anything in the way of sympathy or empathy from this hateful individual.

Watch Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms Give Emotional Speech on Unrest in Atlanta“This is not the legacy of civil rights in America — this is chaos, and we are buying into it,' Atlanta's mayor said in response to Friday night's violence the legacy of civil rights was tainted long before the protests. Do we really not remember the fact that a white supremacist is in office? If America had 100 more like her...it still wouldn't be enough strong leadership - too many weasels in office. That's why these protests won't end. Not because she was wrong. Sometimes anger just grows for way too long. Chaos is unarmed Black people murdered all across this country by police who feel so confident the system will protect them that it happens almost every damn day. That's chaos.
