    this is incredible.

    and I don't want to be shocking here, but in a sense, the world feels more meaningful when an actual nightmare and a literal braze follow the absurd murder of a man

    That's what pisses me off using death of a man as an excuse to loot stuff.

    It's trash that trump's just going to jerk off the blue rather than try to make a statement that finds common ground.

    Burn it down. Maybe they'll get the hint this time. If they don't, I'm sure it'll happen in another city in a few months and we can try again.

    sure, ask people to protest “respectfully,” that’s how things get done, right?

    Are you encouraging this? So they need to rob people who had nothing to do with it to get things done? very odd take

    it's only an "odd take" if you think property is more important than peoples' lives. would you rather the community actually retaliate, and start killing cops?

    property is insured. it's an outlet. the jerk-off american creation myths are all about a protest that destroyed tons of property. to say nothing of the fact target barred protesters the night before when they needed milk to combat tear gas, to say nothing of the fact that you're tsk-tsking people takign things they need to use or sell during the worst economic downturn since the depression. spare me.

    Yeah, attacking private property and stealing stuff from people that had nothing to do with it surely is gonna bring some change. The people that started looting stuff used the whole thing as an excuse to do so and they saw it as an opportunity since police was preocuppied with riots. If you really believe this stuff you should target government/police buildings then.

    "innocent people" are going to be fine. you're crying over target.

    they literally were targeting the precinct building until the mayor let them start shooting rubber bullets at protesters, you moron

    Unfortunately capitalism has brainwashed the world into thinking these mega corporations are as important as people.

    First of all. Calm down, only one crying here seems to be you

    target is an evil company that deserves getting robbed? Or the insurance people the one who deserves so? Cuz there are people getting things by robbing. So someone is getting robbed. Who is it exactly?
