When you turn the country into a war zone you get a war
Here are 3 videos that I think should get some discussions on. I posted them in my fed up essay in comments, but I think they might get lost there.
Mimi posted it in Wendy's essay and Trevor absolutely nails it here. He starts out talking about how Amy Cooper knew damn well that she was weaponizing the black man's identity against him by saying she was going to call the cops on him and say that it was an African American man who was threatening violence against her.
This is just one of Jimmy's videos on the police violence, but he also addresses the way the media is forming the narrative.
Saagar too is more focused on the looting taking place then how dangerous it is for Trump to invoke the Insurrection Act that allows the military to police the country. Krystal points out that even though Trump says that he supports peaceful protests he had the cops assault the peaceful protesters just to move them for his photo op at the church. After listening to what she said Saagar again talks about the looting. He should listen to what Noah says about looting. If the people that are supposed to enforce the laws don't then why should people follow them?
And again about the media narrative this comment nails it:
Floyd didn't die after being pinned by his neck, as the article describes. He was handcuffed, restrained by three officers, then an officer put his full weight on his knee on Floyd's neck for nearly 9 minutes, The last 3 of those minutes Floyd was unresponsive and motionless. Despite stating multiple times "I can't breathe". Floyd didn't die, He was murdered by the one we trust and pay to protect us. All this for what? Allegedly passing on a counterfeit $20. Don't like the protest or the riots? You should have acted when it was just a knee. In fact, Trump had the power to prevent all of this when it was just a knee.
The same happend in Copenhagen, Denmark yesterday https://t.co/0c8tH8jxWt

It's not just about Floyd... it's about the corruption people are beginning to see and acknowledge.
