    That's funny.

    But, seriously ..., I really hope it's only a joke and not a functioning Guillotine. Sounds absurd just to say those words. But ..., damn ..., have you seen the last three years?

    With all due respect to America's former Mayor, that is not proof beyond a reasonable doubt of intent to kill.

    It shows callous disregard to human life. But it does not translate to Chauvin saying, "I want this MF to die." Or at least, without more, it just as easily could show that he wrongly thought Floyd was faking and trying to milk sympathy.

    This is such a load of shit. We see him on the guys chest killing him. That is murder. Just because a court fucks up does not mean he is not guilty in reality. Courts do not define reality, they merely convict people, and often they fuck up. Legally innocent does not mean innocent.

    Intent only matter in legal definitions of what you can prove. You kneel on someone's kneck for 8 minutes while they gurgle and slowly die beneath you, and there is intent to kill all over that. That is great that your legal conviction might say so, but reality is not defined by the courts. The dude is still dead, and the cop sat on him for five minutes knowing he was choking to death, and then another two just to make sure he was dead.

    That is reality.

    So if I'm choking someone and they beg me to let them breathe, and I yet keep choking them several minutes after they pass out, whoopsie daisy? Didn't mean to kill him?

    "Sorry, your honor, I figured if I kept choking him he'd come back to life and ask me to stop. I'm not a mind reader."

    Police kneeled on a black man for 8 minutes while he begged for air and was slowly killed. All of that over a fake twenty he might not even know he had.

    I support the protests and the calls for this to end. I also recognize the frustration and hate that the US system of racism has had since our creation and how it continues to this day. White people have lynched and abused black people for being black and have never stopped in america. We had a bloody civil war to stop the sale of black people as slaves and their abuse. After that we had years of klan activity and the racial intollerance and abuse of blacks until we had bloody riots demanding we change in the civil rights era. Beyond that it continues to this day. Peace has gotten them nowhere, but bloody violence has had some success.

    So since white racists and authorities cannot stop killing black people for being black unless there are bloody riots then I have to support the violence as the only way racists are forced to change. Those are the rules of the system, and fuck you for making these things necessary through your complacent inaction and endorsement of the police and racist society.

    Remember they tried kneeling and were told that was too much and disrespectful. This is what you get.

    With all due respect, he's a lawyer and former prosecutor. I think he has a better grasp of the legal implications here than you or any of us here.

    Maybe the cop thought he was on a black man. Can we be sure they were supporting the protestors and not making overt threats of how they will arrest people?

    Fair enough. If they ever knock you on your ass, beat you up and burn your...whatever you own that's of value, just remember that it's all for a good cause. :techman:

    You are a crybaby and a wussbag. Your fearful cowardice is well documented. Go live in your bunker.

    Hey, donald trump is now threatening the use of military on US citizens.

    So the question is will the military follow unjust and unconstitutional orders to declare war on US citizens for Donald Trump.

    This is what people like @T.R seem to be advocating for in their calls for violence.

    Say goodbye to every nice thing you have if you allow donald trump to use the military on US soil. That is revolution and you do not want Iraq on american soil.

    The first thing that will happen when a Tyrant declares war on it's people is they will seize all your guntards weapons. They will come into your homes and find them. This is not Obama or Hillary seizing your weapons. This will be the US military under donald trump taking your guns. You are going to find out just how meaningless your assault rifle is.

    you know what "under color of law" means, I assume?

    The only perspective that matters is that if a protester strikes a reporter, it's by default a crime, if a cop does it - literally on camera - it's because he assumes he's entitled to.

    What horrifies me tonight is not just that Bizarro Lex Luthor has decided to go full 3rd World Tinpot Dictator, it's that 25-30% (more?) among us - the folks that think that threatening to turn the military lose on American citizens *while using a church and a Bible as a prop* (for....SOME....reason?) somehow makes any sense - hear that threat and think "Murica! Fuck yeah!"

    Don't need a bunker. I live in an area where it's known that you will get shot for breaking into someone's home. You on the other hand will have to put your dress on and fool some truck driver to let you shack up for the night. Looters have no problem beating up women either. Imagine what they will do once they find out you're really a man masquerading as a woman?

    Just remember, it's all for the cause. :techman:

    I'm going to stand by my position that it's not a radical idea to pay attention when the historians warn you
