You know, if cat owners would simply floor it, drive through them, they will learn very fast to stop standing in the middle of a busy freeway. BoomCalifornia Just as a heads up, this was tweeted yesterday. kcrw I wish the police would bend the knee to its public and really protect and serve and stop protecting their racist immoral counterparts!

Wag muna uwi LA!!!!!!! mellapotsss Plow through. They have no right to imoede others kerryfjacob Rodney King was TWENTY EIGHT years ago. I was NINE years old when CBS interrupted my Saturday morning Cartoons to show footage of the Riots in L.A. ALL day long. JusticeForGeorge Don't go easy on that killer cop
jack CNN MDNBC have all cancelled Covid19 in America by inciting protest to all their Democratic protesters by lying to their faces. Zero social distancing good job Please be careful LA protestors 😞 there’s still a terribly contagious virus and LA is a hotspot w the most cases in the state... cjandgary 👀👀
The military needs to be brought in! AngryBlackLady Please Governors. Listen to your people. Hear the pain and anger. You must clean out your police departments. Hire more black and brown people. If you don’t, this spiraling violence will flair as the pandemic worsens. Lock down your states. This is the Summer of our discontent, made glorious summer by Trump BlackLivesMatter
are you serious? The same modus operandi soros drones! Easy fix Fight for freedom and human rights! Look, all these losers are going to eventually go back home and continue living their lives as they always have and not changing a damn thing. MrJonCryer It's happening: via YouTube _drewski185 Human are terrorist
MrJonCryer Why are they not all being arrested for not social distancing? ITS TIME, America. We will stand for it no longer. Follow us to join the ItsTime movement and stay tuned.... OneRace Social justice Public health apparently. This is MayorOfLA new Los Angeles Shameful law abiding citizens have no protection from this corrupt mayor Pander to thugs
The root of the problems hasn't change since the slavery era... thesundaypaper If the police officer responsible is not convicted of a significant crime, the protests will be a lot more disruptive. Let this stand as a major warning against police brutality. Can we start locking them up. Take out this trash
Actually LAPD shut it down before the protesters came through. FIVE DEMANDS, NOT 1 LESS (We stand with George Floyd and Minnesota) : 1. RELEASE the American citizens arrested in demonstration. 2. APOLOGIZE for definiting us as THUGS, RIOTOR. 3. WITHDRAW all the charges of all demonstrators. 'Not surprisingly, then, support for Trump correlates highly with a standard scale of modern racism (r = +.48; Van Assche & Pettigrew, 2016).' research

Here's What to Know'When the looting starts, the shooting starts': Trump tweets about protests in Minneapolis, saying 'THUGS' are dishonoring George Floyd's memory and suggesting the 'Military' assume control Hey troll you are the thug 😂🤣 Thugs have taken over and the army should be called in.
