    No and one could argue we squandered an opportunity to do that.

    Regardless of feelings about the two institutions- which I definitely understand- there are still a lot of good people that work at DHS and FBI and believe in American ideals.

    Iím not sure how any good people could continue to work for the FBI. They showed that their allegiance is with the DNC and not America.

    How can anyone work for Amazon? Or Google? Or Facebook?

    It's a pay check and job security.

    At the FBI, you're talking about people that are probably going to do 20-25 years, maybe make it to a GS-13, 14, or 15 level...maybe a low SES level...and then retire. They're not looking to rock the boat too much - just do their jobs to the best of their ability.

    Either way, this is gonna get ugly.
    It's crazy that they found a half chewed fentanyl/meth speedball in the back of the squad care with his DNA on it and people still persist in trying to make a martyr out of Floyd.

    I just don't understand it. Would we even be having this discussion if the LEO in question was a black guy? Is it just because Chauvin is white?

    Dude passed a counterfeit bill, was dealt with very reasonably, put in the car in the back of the car in a reasonable fashion, squirms out of car onto ground on traffic side of car and one of the many pills he munched on fell out of his mouth into the squad car apparently. There is no question he was on meth and fentanyl.... This isn't a Botham Jean or Philando Castile situation. The narratives are set, too much water under the bridge. Everyone has to stick by their guns.

    It's because they spent an entire summer telling us white cops kill black men in large numbers and never pay for it. They can not lose face by that not being true.

    He just seems like an odd test case to me. Maybe it's that the video elicits so much of an emotional reaction that all other circumstances surrounding his death don't matter.

    People need to see the entire thing. It went south at the end for sure but the police were not being assholes up until the point where he was restrained/knee maneuver after he had popped out of the car.

    This makes no sense. The KKK was a dem hate group 100 years ago. They killed lots of people 100 years ago. Ever since senator Byrd died, I think the KKK died with him.

    Why arenít they labeled a terrorist group? Because too many dem politicians are tied to the group and they could be forced to step down. Trump tried to do it, but he didnít have any support from the dems

    You can't really compare BLM to the KKK. The KKK are more along the lines of the extreme wings of ANTIFA or street gangs.

    The one thing I will say, many BLM supporters (particularly the "leaders" and more militant supporters) are in favour of Marxism. Marxism lead to 100s of millions of deaths thanks to famines, tyranny, and mass state murderings.
