    In Louisville’s case, it was because of a “no knock” warrant that went wrong!!
    Louisville protest of Breonna Taylor case leaves at least 7 shot, 1 critically
    Like MPD, Louisville Metro PD has blood on their hands!

    I went an re-read your post and I didn’t see the word APPEARED, not that would have made a difference. Everything else you posted was nonsense and misguidedly wrong.
    The reason against voter ID is to allow illegals to vote. As usual the black community is being used to try to prop up the cause.

    Person Of Color. I ####### hate that term. I am not a person of color, I am a person! Only a racist could come up with that description.

    Different times calling for thought police. Words that are ok change as leftist see fit.
    Growing up I was Irish/Indian now you have to say Native American. My cousins are Irish/Mexican now you have to say Latinx.
    My best friend was a fruit but now that is derogatory so he is gay, at least till that is no longer ok.
    You can't joke with your friends of different whatever anymore for fear of upsetting a stranger. Too many people with too thin of skins.

    My official ethnic title should be.
    ####y Caucasian-Native American-Redneck-Yankee.:rolleyes:

    14 percent commits the majority of the crime? I would say the number is a lot higher. 14 percent is what gets caught and/or profiled. Now, I wont say all crimes is about profiling, but when more attention is paid to people of color, the number is going to look worse than it really is. Some folks get caught, others don't.

    What exactly is wrong with voter ID? It’s ludicrous to think no ID should be necessary.

    Grandma said the difference between a criminal and a convict was one was stupid enough to get caught.

    Grams was a smooth criminal.

    I agree with you, we all should be looked at as just "people." Color is just what it is. People are going to see differences in race, gender, religious practices, or sexual orientation. I dont totally fault that. What I dislike is that people prioritize these differences so much.. Unfortunately, in America people are not seen as equal. It's too many citizens that are afraid of what's different, so they don't try to learn about other cultures or relate to other people. I've been reading all of these posts, and some of the comments are really good thoughts. Others of you, and you know who you are, have brought up irrelevant information. I dont see what the background of Floyd matters here. I refuse to watch the video because I dont want my soul to hurt. For someone to die that way, it pains me. Other members, are so out of tune with society that your saying some poor things. I can't help but wonder if those members are racist to some degree. America talks about being patriotic but the citizens really aren't. Many only care about their own lives and well being. In my mind, patriotism is about unconditional love to all people. Floyd didn't deserve this, and if those cops get away with murder(no pun intended), I will be surprised. Now the riots, that's not protesting. You're not raising awareness to police brutality among blacks by destroying ####. If anything you're diverting attention away from what's most important. I got caught up in my emotion a little bit. I apologize.
