    I’ve been saying this for a long time. How many are injured and maimed? Obviously, there is no follow up. People who are injured by police are expected to disappear and be thankful they weren’t killed.

    Looks like the whole lynch mob will remain incarcerated.

  4. Ohhhh! 😒 😒😒 Just takes away my breath. Police allowed this racist savage to roam free for 2 months, endangering the lives of more people. The Glynn County police department need to be dismantled.

      She’s fierce, true, but it makes me sad that this is her childhood. She’s just a little girl. Childhood is supposed to be magical. So many children have lost this time.

    Indeed, the Central Park Five. Everything Trump has done in response to the protests is TOTALLY within character.

    Ahead of his time, to be sure. And he’s certainly not alone.

  8. After Travis McMichael had killed Ahmaud Arbery, a witness William Bryan heard him say…”fucking n****r”. And police let them roam free for 2 got damn months. Heads need to roll at the Glynn County police department and folks need to go to prison for this shyt.

    • Liza says:

      It was a thrill kill by white supremacists who, at the moment of the murder, believed they would face no consequences.

    What I’ve been saying. What is wrong with so many cops cannot be reformed or trained out of them.

    Truth. And we have this until January, 2021, and there is at least some doubt that there will be a peaceful transfer of power? Assuming the Democrats win the election and assuming there is an election.

    “The past few days have been hard. Just hard.”

    And it gets worse until DT is gone. I wouldn’t even try to predict how, but the downward spiral is accelerating. Who could have predicted what has happened so far?

    All I knew going into this so called “presidency” was that calamity was inevitable. Four years is a long time to hope that some event wouldn’t trigger the downward spiral.

    We’ve certainly learned about the weakness in our government, that the checks and balances that were supposed to protect us from this have stress points that fail.

    But beyond that, I knew we were in trouble when 63 million people voted for Trump. That’s a lot of racism, fear, ignorance, and greed. We can talk about unity until it snows in hell but it’s not going to happen.

    This country is on the brink. Some people see it as an opportunity, but quite frankly, I can’t even imagine what happens next.

      I guess she should be glad it wasn’t her eye.

      I am vehemently opposed to rubber bullets. They hurt people very badly and there are some cops who seem to enjoy doing that.
