The last weekend in Chicago, about 45 black people were murdered. In 2019+2020, there were 8 black people killed by policemen controversially. Huh? John Oliver is the idol of idiots. What happened to David Dorn?

Baby steps for BLM. Step 1 - demand equality. Step 2 - seek restitution. Step 3 - Seek revenge. When Egypt detroys the pyramids (built by slaves), Rome destroys the Vatican (built by slaves) and Greece destroys their monuments to their gods (built by slaves), then and only then, should the USA consider destroying its culture.

In fairness though if you give everybody the right to walk down the street and buy a military grade weapon then you should think it’s a bit dangerous to not give the police the same because some times it’s the only way to combat it. I know I hate it to but sometimes you do have to fight fire with fire 🔥.

This nonsense of reporting half of the news has to stop. These “peaceful protesters” are attacking Police Officers, they have just a right to protect themselves as anyone else. Literally people I have called my friends are posting videos to their “stories” of them throwing objects like rocks, bricks, and frozen water bottles at men and women for simply wearing a uniform.

Our entire country was actually founded based on John Locke’s social contract theory and many of his political ideologies—the whole life, liberty & pursuit of happiness was taken almost verbatim from Locke’s life, liberty and property. So, it’s even more telling that white men who saw taxation without representation as a justifiable reason for a broken contract are lauded as heroes while black Americans who have faced more systemic and social oppression, violence and injustice are denounced as troublemakers.

Word trick, DEFUND, means what it says DEFUND, take away funding. Reallocating funds for this or that is just a start, the goal is to defund police, as in get rid of it. Give liberals an inch and they will take a mile. Democrat cities will most probably reach their goal of defunding the police and blacks will suffer the most, as their neighborhoods statistically have the most 911 calls, except this time they'll call 911 and no one answers. There's some truth to what the angry black woman said at the end of this video. But burning down anything in one's neighborhood is not the answer, as life goes on and she'll still have to shop somewhere, now she'll have to travel elsewhere to purchase goods. Still your neighborhood, whether you own it or not, you live there so you have access to what it offers. If you want ownership, pool your funds and buy things. stop buying stupid shit like $1100 iPhones, Air Jordans, Jewelry and expensive weaves. Get your freakin priorities in order

This reminds me of a conversation I had with my sister when we were watching Stranger Things: My Sister: *regarding Hawkins National Laboratory* "It's like an entire organization of Professor Umbridges!" Me: "No, it's more like the SCP Foundation. In theory, they're meant to keep us safe, but they've given themselves permission to do anything they think is necessary in order to do so, which has made them more of a threat than the very thing they were supposed to protect us from."

This is a message to lawyers in this country who desire change. Network with each other, establish an llc including board of directors, and set up an iron clad bank trust to collect public funds for the sole purpose of lobbying for criminal justice reform (for all states and the national level): *Create a go-fund-me account and clearly state your role, salary requirement, and purpose for change. *Grant partnership to persons who make a donation supporting your role and purpose for change. *Partner with bipartisan criminal justice reform nonprofit(s) or a special interest group(s) and the public partners. *Host public forums to get precise information about the reform desired by partners. *Draft the bi-laws, mission statement and vision then share them with partners for final approval. *Create a website and give partners access to the entire process. *Maintain an open and honest dialogue with partners.

I love how everyone loves to point out how much more likely it is for a black person to be arrested or killed by police and yet nobody dares to address one of the biggest reasons for it which is, in my experience at least, they're significantly more likely to resist and show their ass to cops cuz most of them feel they're above the law or authority. Hmmmmm. No doubt it's horrible for a cop to TRULY treat someone with disproportionate force, and those that do so need to face the music, but I'm so fuckin tired of people just ignoring the elephant in the room and instead pointing fingers at whatever the scapegoat of the week is. TEACH YOUR FUCKING KIDS SOME FUCKING RESPECT AND THIS SHIT (AND MANY OTHER THINGS IN LIFE) WILL IMPROVE.

As a 23 year US Marine Veteran, 12 years of direct combat engagement in the defense of THIS country! I made THIS country a priority while my people are dying in the streets at the hands of the supremecy "I" raised "MY" right hand and supported!! As Amerikkka celebrates it's "Freedom" I shed tears of regret for the role I played. Watching countless Black Servicemen die on foreign soil, I reminded daily that in these "United States" I too am a foreigner. I know without a doubt, my life and intellect are preserved that I may stand and fight for my own for a change! Ase'

For the most part I agree. Racism is bad, black lives do matter as much as any other and people should be judged only by their personal actions not color or race. Having said that, dismissing bad parts of the BLM movement in one sentence won't do any good. It just polarises people more and might lead to a race war. We can't communicate without talking and without it how are we going to reach any good change? The BLM movement started as something good now is just perverted version of itself. They speak of equality but promote repealing of laws protecting it (Californias Proposition 209). One more thing I am *terrified* of posting this given how lately if one dares to not agree on certain topics they become an enemy and people seek to harm them as much as possible. How did we end up in this dystopian world where internet the tool of freedom and USA country of freedom no longer support freedom of speech?

I personly think it has to do with the fact that to become a police officer in the Unites States of America it takes you 19 weeks on average ..... this is ridiculous ! In my Country of Austria it takes you 2 years to become a police officer ! Straight up north in Germany 2 to 2 1/2 years. I really think that´s a big issue.

Just discovered John Oliver here in New Zealand two days ago (I know ... under a rock or what) and I am so riveted by his incisive social commentary and acid humour. I must have watched 20 of his clips and counting (hey ... it's the weekend) . This particular clip and response to Floyd George and what is wrong with the system of policing in America illuminated just how entrenched and problematic police SOPs have become. His clips are very dry, concise yet deadly accurate sociological critiques disguised as a comedy show. Far more political than most ... which is great imo. Like many around the world I have been horrified at the venal, callow, inept idiot and current president, Trump the Liar, and have followed American politics closely from when he first announced his presidential campaign (Ha Ha) ... getting nominated (Shit ... what??) ... then to my absolute horror (Wtf just happened ... where's Hilary ??) ... actually getting voted in ... (Stunned ... he doesn't even understand fundamental truths like climate change) His presidency has been a litany of fiascos ... a car crash in slo-mo ... his stunning lack of intellect, level of self-aggrandising and inability to act constitutionally is shocking. How much more evidence do his (obviously mentally dull) supporters need ? How can they believe his stupid idea of "fake news" as if a cabal of National News Agencies are all conspiring unilaterally to lie and tell untruths to criticise Trump as part of an insidious plot to undermine him ? It is such a ridiculous idea. His own foolhardy, ignorant, incoherent behaviour (concrete and observable) and misspelt bizarre tweets provide enough ammunition ffs. His early non-response and subsequent mishandling of the coronavirus and Floyd Georges murder have finally and ingloriously exposed the emporer has no clothes ... yet he is doubling down on appealing to his rancid MAGA base with such irrelevant shit like his anti-China rhetoric (child-like in his blame-gaming for Covid-19) and tone-deaf response to #Blacklivesmatter ... a rascist buffoon who has eviscerated and divided America ... exposing her ugly systemic rascism (and his), almost as a by-product of his incompetence. He has been so bad that all that is worst about American society has bubbled up like a huge explosive whitehead. I only hope that some positive change can occur with the huge groundswell of public opinion calling for sweeping reform. My only disappointment is there is not a Democratic candidate of vision and energy ... just Biden. Lets hope he has great staff working for him with the fucking fortitude to make those hard, long-term systemic changes. Trump has to be voted out ... surely. The American people cannot be that stupid again. So ... discovering John Oliver, whose brilliant exposes resonate with my world view, was/is fucking awesome. His clips are relevant, funny and necessary. I wish they were required viewing for all Americans. As an fyi ... I am justified in flaying Trump as his behaviour has a global impact. Unlike Obama who I had confidence in and felt safe. Exiting America from the Paris Accord on Climate Change is on such obvious example, destabilising non-aggression pacts another and his protectionist Trade tarriffs a third.

umm... I might sound stupid, but I will say it anyway. Since I don't live in America I can't really understand about whats actually happening but as far as I understand here. This is really not the time to go out and protest. With a high increase in confirmed cases of corona virus. It is better to stay indoors. Even though in my country, the police allowed protesting and just stood by to listen and insure social distancing regulations. But the people who came to protest were too large so the police tweeted out so that people could stop coming since it began getting hard for the police to try their best to ensure that the virus won't spread during protesting. Even though they had to make arrests since the protesters started throwing bottles and rocks at the police. This is just my opinion, it may seem like Im defending the police and "white people" but Im just giving my opinion on the protesting thats happening. But I support the protesting, but I don't think it's really the right time to be gathering in large crowds right now. #BLM No ones probably gonna read this but Im still gonna write it. But the speech the woman said at the end was beautiful. She should be hired to give speeches at the protests. But that line though "you are lucky that black people are looking for equality and not revenge" that was a very true statement. There is as much "black people" as there is "white people".

Avg. price each prison spends to take of its' inmate: lowest ~15k (AL), highest ~$65k (CA) and this doesn't include the cost of sending a person to prison. https://www.vera.org/publications/price-of-prisons-2015-state-spending-trends/price-of-prisons-2015-state-spending-trends/price-of-prisons-2015-state-spending-trends-prison-spending Read a story not too long ago where they were doing a comparison of two people (black man, white man) were sent to prison for the same crime- family manslaughter. It was previously known that he (black)had mental issues (schizophrenia, i think) and didn't finish high school. He was sentence for 30yrs.; court room was practically empty for his sentencing. Cumulative cost $69K. just think all the good that could be done with $69k. That's 4.6x more than the $15k that stupid officer was talking about for protection of transgender YEARLY budget; $69K pissed dwn the drain. The other guy (white) was sentences for less time, people had to stand in the court rm bc so it was so packed. He was going for his Ph. D in Yale or something so of course a lot of people had something to say or wanted to be in for the proceedings.

We have some of the same police violence issues in my country (France) with similar cases of excessive force resulting in people's deaths or serious injuries (missing eyes or limbs for participants or bystanders of protests), children being severely beaten while under police custody/detention, etc. But we are a drop in the ocean compared to the USA. I fear that if nothing good happens soon in your country, you will end up destroying yourselves or provoking a world war. In the first case, I would sincerely cry for you since I cannot act with you to avoid that. I am utterly terrified of the second. Please don't let the whole world burn!  Just burn (figuratively) your president :(
