Something caught my eye as I was reading about the latest round of looting and rioting

The man who was fatally shot by Minneapolis cops Thursday had been wanted in connection with a felony arms conviction and been involved in at least 20 previous run-ins with authorities, according to records and a report.

Winston Boogie Smith, 32, was gunned down in the Midwest city around 2 p.m. when he “produced a handgun” as members of a US Marshals task force tried to take him into custody on the state warrant, the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Department said.

at the same time

Smith described himself on social media as a musician, actor, comedian and photographer whose “main goal is to inspire the youth” and people who’ve been misled, his Instagram bio shows.

Sounds like maybe he is the one doing the misleading?

Gotta love the internet where anyone can pretend to be anything they want. It’s a lot harder to get away with the BS in the real world. The truth eventually catches up with you.

Alexander8- I’ll be interested to see exactly what a “Violence Interruptor” is, what tools he/she does & doesn’t have, and exactly what that job description entails…

From my perspective, I’m going with “B” lol. If they think this can work, more power to them. I think the reality of the situation will be more of a gut punch when they see first hand why LEO’s are armed and have to use force to detain certain elements of society. But again, if unicorns and rainbows is a viable alternative, more power to them :wink:

If I may use my go to response: What could possibly go wrong?

Anyone notice that the protesters in Cuba don’t loot and burn down their cities?
The Cubans want freedom.
Our inner city commandos want destruction, and loot.
That says a lot about what’s motivating our society.

John292- agreed. I am under the impression that what we’re seeing here in this country is a well funded, fully coordinated plan that has been put into play. I live in Colorado and have heard from folks in Denver (who witnessed this first hand) that “protestors” with alternate motives were bussed into Denver last year to intermix with the local BLM groups to help “protest”, and once the cover of darkness was in place, the destruction began. In a couple of instances, piles of bricks, blocks etc. appeared on street corners in the general area of the upcoming planned “protests”. All of this seems to be very well coordinated.

As has been suggested, perhaps we should bring all of those in Cuba who yearn for freedom here, and ship everyone here who is striving for socialism or Marxism back to Cuba. That would certainly solve a lot of problems in my opinion. That’s a “Go Fund Me” I would certainly contribute to :wink:

I have neither proof, nor rumours to support it, but my gut feeling is someone wanted the “protesters” to do a lot more than they had, and they underperformed for whatever reason.

Robert15- I believe that falls under the category of “karma”, which comes in many, varied forms.

They can’t. They’ve been ordered to stand down. And they’ve been defunded.
