US has a for profit incarceration system filled with people too poor to properly represent themselves.

Follow the money.

The land of the free and the home of the brave has more of its citizens imprisoned than any other country on Earth.

While that may be true it also follows that, with freedom comes responsibility.  Free peoples don't always obey the laws.

Especially free Black and Brown people. I wonder why it seems so?

You forgot the orange faced ones as well.

I don't know.  Especially considering that over the last 50 years the Democratic party has always taken such good care of them.

Absolutely. In fact it was me that coined the terms "Welfare Queen" and "driving while black" and suggested to the cops to choke them prior to any introductions. My bad. Sorry.

Sure. That's why the US incarceration rate is such a joke - the people are just so darn free they don't know what to do with it.

 

Nice one Big Brother.

As if the urban community has not suffered enough from Covid-19 we now have rioting in the streets. Social distancing while protesting? Probably about as practical as while tandem skydiving. You could make a show of trying, but overall it would be pretty useless. Many of the people in the streets today will go back to work next week. Those who are now infected will be the asymptomatic spreaders in the coming days.

At least we have the security of knowing that the police issue masks to those protest/looters.

I sleep better.

That situation is Infinitely preferable to these, and the cops are doing their jobs.

Did the guy yelling non-violently bring cause to have the National Guard brought in?

In all fairness it is the self checkout line.

Like I said, if the one thing that comes out of this is that cops are going to be scared shitless to kill minorities without cause - at least something good will have come out of it.

None of the black protesters have rifles.

Apparently, Neither did the guy with the beard doing the exact same thing.

And you don't see a difference? You don't notice the riot gear, the batons? Are you fucking blind, or just don't want to see?

I have never seen an officer standing indoors at a protest with a shield and baton.

Why are you so upset?

Those officers in Bill's example appear to be indoors.

often it is not what people say, but what is unsaid that speaks volumes.

I’m sorry but a certain poster (not you) defends Trump consistently and then posts a number of issues of black people in cops faces... I’ve said it before, Trump gives a voice to the closet racists. They no longer feel the need to hide in the shadows

And our fearless leader chooses to pour gasoline on a fire. 

There are no flames.

There's a small flame. It will be gone in a few days. But there is no fire.

It's a Chinese flame.

Once it rains in the spring the flames will disappear like magic.

The flames are a Democratic hoax.

I removed all the sprinklers and fire alarms because you can get them back very quickly when you need them.

I am the best at putting out fires. All the firefighters say "how do you know so much about this?" Maybe I have a talent.

Fire at the mall is very small. Macy's sale looking very good to me!

Obama started the fire.

The CDC is overestimating the risk of flames. They are like a warm campfire.

If we lose only a thousand houses to the flames I will have done a great job.

The lying liberal media are exaggerating the extent of the flames to make me look bad.

We have to put away the fire hoses and reopen the mall. Demand your FREEDOM TO SHOP! LIBERATE!

Billy Joel started the fire, even if he denies it.  Check it out if you don't believe me.  I know, you're going to report "Trump is lying" again but that's because you are a terrible reporter.

Terrible, no good mayor tells people to not go into mall because small flames are warming it up.

I've heard the effect of gasoline is very powerful on fires. We're going to try that, putting gasoline on the fire. The extinguishing effect is very strong, almost a cleaning.

I only asked the firefighters to try putting gasoline on fires.

I never said put gasoline on the fires.

I was being sarcastic when I said put gasoline on the fires.

I always said this would be a big fire.

Obama took all the sprinklers and fire alarms.

We are the best at rebuilding malls, and I never said anything different.

I am putting my son in law in charge of putting out the fires. He started a barbecue last year so he knows all about it.

The CDC is exaggerating the number of deaths from the fire. Some people were going to burn themselves anyway.

Look, it's very simple.  No fire alarms, no fires.  If we weren't so good at detecting fires we'd see a lot fewer fires.

I was the first to say this was a dangerous fire.
