    How many people have to die at the hands of Police brutality?

    Police Erupt in Violence Nationwide.

    The ongoing protests following the killing of George Floyd were caught up in violence again on Saturday, as police all over the country tear-gassed protesters, drove vehicles through crowds, opened fire with nonlethal rounds on journalists or people on their own property, and in at least one instance, pushed over an elderly man who was walking away with a cane. Here are some of the ways law enforcement officers escalated the national unrest.

    Roj – It’s not matter of left and right but right and wrong – all violence is wrong.

    I wasn’t aware I was framing it as Left v Right. That is your take, not mine.

    all violence is wrong.

    Mostly, but sometimes violence IS the only answer. Is the violence I do to save a child from rape as wrong as the violence of the rapist? Or should I be like God and walk away, saying “I’ll punish you later”?

  4. homepaddock says:

    In your example violence used to save a child can be justified. But in the context of current events, the violence that resulted in the murder of George Floyd was wrong; the violence from marchers who are destroying property & endangering lives is wrong & so is the violent response from police.
