Violence is the language of the traumatised, the unheard, the despondent, the frightened, the oppressed, the demonised, the marginalised Peaceful protests have not worked in the past.

Those aren't protests, it's rioting and looting, and domestic terrorism.

oh but there are very fine people on both sides, aren’t there?

Fortunately AP published an accurate quote. 'Hoffman said these are units normally on 48-hour recall to support state authorities in the event of crises like natural disasters.' 'but would not get directly involved in law enforcement' You are FakeNews

If you can't change the world, spark the mind that can change the world

Guess rioting is one way to speed up the herd immunity

Quite pathetic..JusticeForFloyd Follow for immediate follows

You can’t use the military on your own people.

cnnbrk ChrisCuomo donlemon BrookeBCNN wolfblitzer thelauracoates realDonaldTrump The RIOTS- This a serous and no one word will help - where are the LEADERS who can reach our young people who are in so much pain - speak to they’re PAIN -
