Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D) said later Thursday that it was a “very sad night for our state,” adding that he was disheartened the protests had “developed into vandalism and violence.”“I was absolutely shocked by video evidence of a motorist attempting to run over a protestor,” Polis wrote on Twitter. “Coloradans are better than this. I share the immense anguish we all feel about the unjust murder of George Floyd. But let me be clear, senseless violence will never be healed by more violence.”

These are extremely difficult times for our state, country, and world. Now more than ever we need to lift each other up and do right by each other. I ask everyone to make their voice heard peacefully and to turn their anger into advocacy and action -- never violence. (3/3)

Venezuela going wild. This is why we should invade Venezuela and turn over their oil fields to US Big Bznz. The way this entire incident happened, odd. It's a tragic trap It's odd how black policy enforcers are never in charge of an arrest that involves a black suspect White PIs are sent to arrest white suspects all the time THEY operate via a Masonic pyramid Expose the 'hood' wearers.

It’s is disgusting to see the racism and how they treat the African Americans in USA! But more important, everybody regardless race, religion, cultural , political background , sexual orientation must rise the voice to promote change and equal treatment! Wake up USA! Either it’s anarchy or it isn’t. You can’t block roads and jump on Random peoples vehicles because you’re angry but they can’t also act like an ass because they’re angry.

Anyone who says they are shocked by this, hasn't been paying attention and is out of touch with real life. Still too many are not though. Lived there for 3yrs and the amount of gun touting white supremacists there is kind of scary. Plus, it’s one of the most unsafe places to be a pedestrian under normal circumstances. Was hit 2x’s by cars while in a crosswalk w/ the right of way. 🤷‍♂️

US. HOME OF POLICE BRUTALITY THEY ARE PROTESTING THIS AND MANY OTHER DEATHS IN THE HANDS OF BRUTAL COPS. Я верю в лучшее Ignorance Hopefully someone got the license plate on camera. The driver will regret that real quick once they're found Clearly not, Polis. No state is free of the police state On a sidewalk?
