I take back my 2 claps. I would argue the underlying facts don’t support a protest on behalf of police murdering black men, let alone the wanton destruction in its wake.

Do you job. Be factual.

If you want to destroy the country for maybe 20–30 unnecessary cop killings, go for it. But know those are mostly mistakes, some are gross incompetence, and a tiny number are murder like in case of Floyd. And a man you haven’t heard about named Tony Timpa.
