How is it built for rioters? And what nation hasn't forcefully taken land before?
Something Something American independence.
That explains how it is "built by rioters," not how it is "built for rioters." It's a fairly simple question, you shouldn't be having trouble with this. You can try again. I'll reiterate myself to make it easier on you. "How is it built for rioters?"
How many times has the founding fathers of USA said that the people needs to hold the government for account and even said they should be armed with guns to enable them to do so? Its not like all this "safeguarding" would be done by sending angry worded letters no matter what you might think.
You're right, I stand corrected.
Coming from someone who thinks repeating a notion that had just be debunked is a viable form of refutation, I can't say I think your perspective on intellectual matters has much merit.
Oh honey... this isn't about a matter of perspective. (pats you on the head) You're cute.
I wouldn't be opposed to that, but the rioters are causing exponentially more problems and destruction than white supremacists and racist cops combined. Especially when you consider they're rioting over "racist cops" who aren't even racist.
I can tell the cops aren't racist - after all, it's just a coincidence that they keep killing black people.
And it's just a coincidence they're all criminals and it's just a coincidence they're all resisting arrest and it's just a coincidence that black people are committing violent crimes at exponentially higher rates.
Is that your opinion or you have sources for that?
Sure thing. But I hope that in light of this evidence, you actually respond rather than doing what everyone else does and just stop responding because they know their stance is indefensible. So here's George Floyd's criminal record, or part of it at the very least: Here's a more in-depth explanation of what happened during the most prominent one where he dressed up as someome "from the water department," knocked on a woman's door, when she realized he wasn't a part of the water department, she tried to close the door, which he prevented her from doing by holding the door open. He forced himself inside, put a gun to her stomach, and guided her to the living room, while the rest of George's criminal friends drove up to the house, entered, and began burglarizing the place (he was sentenced to 5 years in prison for this):
Here's the video of George Floyd resisting arrest: https://youtu.be/YPSwqp5fdIwHere's Jacob Blake's arrest records (note the sexual assault): gizmosheets.com/.../...b-Blake-Arrest-records.jpegHere's the video of Jacob Blake resisting arrest: https://youtu.be/NS5cSwVEyDgHere's Ricardo Munoz charging a police with a knife, a very clear illegal, criminal offense: https://youtu.be/CHBeRPxZ6KEHere are the FBI's statistics on crime/race correlations: ucr.fbi.gov/.../table-21And to preface, black people only make up 13.4% of the population (according to Google, as well as Wikipedia, you can just type in "what percentage of the US population is black" in Google and it'll give you a little snippet at the top). So if they're doing everything at an equal rate, they'd have approximately a 13.4% contribution to all crimes.But as you can see, black people make up for 52.6% of all murders, 29.1% of all rape, 54.5% of robbery, 33.3% of aggravated assault, 37.5% of "violent crime" which I assume (potentially incorrectly) groups all violent crime into one category, 31.4% of "other assaults."But the main one is murder, obviously, where they account for 52.6% of all murders, despite being a very small fraction of the population.
None of those offenses carry the death penalty. Unless it's cops who decide to be Judge, jury, and executioner. Also, its not clear the cops even knew about those offenses.
Resisting arrest justifies use of force, use of force sometimes results in death. When an officer is subject to a situation in which their life or well-being is at risk, they have every right to defend themselves, especially when the suspect has shown to disregard police orders. So while resisting arrest doesn't directly carry the death penalty, death can justly result.And as for Jacob Blake, it is clear they knew about his criminal offenses prior to arriving. The woman's house who he broke into had a restraining order against him, of which was mentioned during her 911 call, I mean, it's literally why she called. Additionally, I'm not providing that information to support the notion that the cops knew about those incidents, I'm providing this evidence to show you that these people are bad people and that responding in such a way is entirely warranted. These people die because they put themselves in positions that risk their own life. But I'm explicitly mentioning that the cops DID know about these offenses just to show you how you don't know what you're talking about.
But if you think the cops acted in an unjust way, and think the officers should have reacted in a less-lethal way, then I'd like to direct you to an incident in Tulsa (link at the end of the paragraph) where two cops had ordered a man to exit his vehicle 40 times, which he never did willingly. As he was sitting in his car, and after the 40 commands for him to exit his car, they pulled out their taser and said if he doesn't exit the vehicle then he will be tased, this was repeated multiple times to no avail, and ended up tasing him more than once and he STILL did not leave the vehicle. They now said if he doesn't leave the vehicle, he will be maced. He put his legs out of the vehicle but did not get up from his seat, they ordered him to get on the ground of which he replied that he "didn't want to." They said if you don't then you will be maced. He still did not comply, and they maced him. He still would not exit his vehicle so they said if he doesn't then he will be maced again, and you guessed it, he was maced again. He still would not leave the vehicle, so the two officers attempted to wrestle him into exiting the vehicle. During this scuffle, the person had pulled out a gun from his side and shot both of the officers, killing one and severely wounding the other. (Link: www.news9.com/.../body-cam-video-of-tulsa-officer-shooting-released)(Also, I can link you the full video if you'd like, but fair warning, it's graphic and potentially disturbing).So after 40 commands to exit the vehicle, several commands to get on the ground, several times tased, several times maced, and the officer still lost his life.
What exactly would you have the officers do in this situation, considering that an expired tag, licenses, etc, does not carry the death penalty? Similarly, does a cop enforcing the law carry the death penalty? And if not, should their be riors over the death of that police officer?Additionally, if your loved one (s) was a cop, would you want them to use the least amount of passification possible in a situation in which their life is at risk? Or would you rather them ensure and secure the continuation of their life and well-being, in the face of someone who had exhibited defiance, hostility, and unpredictability? Do you hold cops to higher standards than you would your own loved ones? Keep in mind that these cops are people.Cops literally get shot the moment the knock on a door just for answering to a domestic violence call. Cops need to be on-guard at ALL times. They can't just assume you won't do anything because that's how police officers die by the hands of bad people.What you need to understand is cops have a DANGEROUS job. They die because they confront bad people. When Jacob Blake is a rapist who also has a history with violence and he is ignoring the policy's commands and he reaches into an area that could contain a weapon, the police shouldn't assume they aren't going to die, because that's when they do. The police who commanded that man 40 times wasn't expecting to die. Unfortunately they were TOO considerate and now one of their lives is over, and that criminal's life is not.The problem isn't with cops, the problem is with people reaisting arrest.
