I disagree.

The reason we have no opportunities in inner cities is these people aren't shot and killed like they would be in the old days

People acting like this being shot and killed did two things

1.) deterrence 2.) remove parasites from the system

When you don't suffer any consequences and you stand to gain (as in this case) - you're gonna have stuff like this happen

And it'll just get worse and worse

The reason "they" don't is because they keep voting in Democrats who will pay them off then rile them up when they need the 'vote'.

Democrat policies destroy opportunities and thus ferment anti-cop, anti-family and anti-rule of law ideology.

Its funny the same government that oppresses them, they fervently vote for because gubmernet gibs.

The reason "they" don't have opportunities is because they are low IQ. More development would happen if they didn't have a crabs in a bucket mentality with their best and brightest. Anyone well mannered and studied is "acting White" and "an uncle Tom." Hell, anyone that deviates from the lockstep black culture is an uncle Tom.

Did you see where NYC is closing that one charter school that was really good and actually produced some well-educated individuals?

Lack of education leads to higher crime/having babies with no dad that don't get read to and don't get good education repeat cycle.

Strong correlation b/w even illiteracy and incarceration.

You can thank the government programs for that. You don’t get money if you’re married, or you get far less. You are being paid to be single and have lots of kids (more kids = more money). This is happening all over the country. Poor and middle class people’s of all the hues need to get rid of that crap, it’s killing the family dynamic. It’s been insidious in this country and needs to end.

Also denial of school choice programs. No, you have to go to this public school that doesn't give a shit about its teachers or students but complains "muh funding" when kids are given a choice to go to a school where people care about them and give them the tools to break the cycle.

We were NEVER supposed to make our cities the American Dream. Our cities were immigration systems that did scale the growth of the developing US. But did so compromising our way of life and our rights.

Now, the populace in these cities rely on government entitlements or income from govt ‘work’. The govts rely on the volume taxation.

Getting out, starting a business and a family- that stuff is chastised by whores, apes and faggots. It’s worse now since so much bullshit non-essential work incl media setup shop in our cities.

“Daddy ain’t around, he’s probably out committing felonies”

NAFTA took a proud people and took their jobs. Then the elites sold them crack and coke and the thug lifestyle. Then the private for profit prisons were making the elites rich and the democrats behind it who also control the mis-educational System did a huge misdirection of the root cause.

And many times that is a lie- that part ‘probably’.

So many black kids lose in the single-mom lottery like whites and other races. It should be pretty alarming the abortion rates and multi-partner breeding. But of course these things are en vogue

I watched the autozone go up in flames and thought the same thing. Imagine taking your car in, you have to leave it overnight for repairs and the next day it is just gone. There is no thought for anyone else but themselves.

If you have no money to buy food or anything else, and weren't eligible for a stimulus check, you'd just wait for the shutdown to end so you could go back to whatever means of getting money you were using before? This has now been over 2 months in states like NY and it will defininitely be 3 before restrictions begin to be lifted.

My take on why this happens is 1)lack of education 2)assholes in media, local government who immediately claim racism and call for arrests. When this happens people get out riled up who just go out "Rabble Rabble Rabble" https://southpark.cc.com/clips/153618/rabble-rabble-rabble for example.

The problem is those who incite the riot by getting people all fired up never get in trouble for it. Thus creating and endless cycle of stupidity.

5
DRKMSTR 5 points ago +5 / -0

They're not local to the area. Rioting is just a free opportunity to loot and break stuff they'll never be held responsible for, and since they aren't local, they won't have to ever pay taxes to fix the damage.

There wouldn’t be riots though. The anger is targeted outward when they’re rioting. Those bad cops. That bad orange man. The city wouldn’t riot if it’s own crimes were being disclosed, except at the person who is doing the disclosing

Interesting how stores just let them do this too. I suppose shooting looters is more about PR than law.

canadianhere 21 points ago +21 / -0

Regular employees like cashiers are told not to go after looters, because it's not worth the personal injury.

Security, on the other hand, is usually not given guns and even if they were, won't shoot looters because security tends to be unionized and would say it's a jeopardy to their health and safety (in other words, if you want shootings, pay us more.)

17
DinsdalePiranha 17 points ago +17 / -0

Regular employees would be stupid to go after looters unarmed and untrained. Personally, I'd peace outta there.

Security knows you can't fight 200 people with 18 bullets without ending up a smear on the pavement.

Management knows it's just the cost of doing business in Clown World and passes the costs on to other shoppers.

I'd think they should have just locked the place down with their metal curtains and whatnot. Anyone inside gets out through a one-direction revolving gate system from the 1970s. They're probably illegal now though.

Target has one of the most aggressive Lost Prevention teams in retail. They will go after you and the police will be involved. Their loss prevention will go after you, even when you're out of the store.

They also have a pretty sophisticated system of facial recognition technology at their disposal.

Facial recognition? Well it's a good thing COVID gave the looters a totally legitimate reason to wear masks in public!

I worked at a Target a long time ago. If there had been a riot going on I'm getting the hell out of there and going home. It wasn't a bad job and they weren't bad to work for but even if my car was a Sherman tank and I had a mini arsenal in it there's no way in hell I'm going to stick around and risk my life to defend their property. Not part of the job description or consistent with the pay.

The Somali/Muslim owned businesses are not being looted or robbed because they are standing outside with machettes, knives, and guns. Never thought I would say this --- but GOOD FOR THEM for exercising their 2nd amendment rights.

I don't support these rioters. I don't support their tactics. I don't support their ideology. I don't support their choice of targets. I think they're awful, violent, greedy, selfish, and dangerous.

But I do admire one thing about them. When something happens that pisses them off, they are not afraid to go out and actually do something. The something they're doing, who they're doing it to, and why is all wrong and terrible. But they actually do something. It's a level of commitment and dedication most on our side lack. Sure, sometimes we make a show of pretending to almost do something. Like the guys outside the bar in Odessa, or the MI protestors. But one of the biggest reasons why the State continues to trample freedoms is because they know at the end of the day, we're all bark and no bite. They're not afraid of us or our guns because they know we're never actually going to use them. We'll post about how we might need to someday on the internet. A few with more stones will actually grab their rifles and show up someplace. But when the State comes to call our bluff, we fold every time. We meekly put our rifles down and go away quiety. And we've show that teeth that are never used are not something to be feared. These protestors actually use their teeth. They use them wrongly, on the wrong people, for the wrong reasons, in the wrong way. But when something riles them up, they do actually go out and use their teeth. We don't. And that's why the State continues to walk all over us. And I'm just as guilty of this.

Socialismsuckz 2 points ago +2 / -0

I agree. Can you imagine if these people had better ethics (not destroying private property of people that have nothing to do with the murder) and if they were not sold on the dem party? I respect that they will go out and fight but I don't respect it's usually because the media is pushing the narrative and in a way manipulating them into action.. I think the media tries with conservatives too but we know it's a trap. This case and killing is awful but I can't agree with looting and breaking things because of it. Honestly, until they realize they are pawns in someone else's game the black community will never flourish.

April 26th, 1992

There was a riot on the streets

Tell me where were you?

You were sittin' home watchin' your TV

While I was participating in some anarchy

First spot we hit it was my liquor store

I finally got all that alcohol I can't afford

With red lights flashin' time to retire

And then we turned that liquor store into a structure fire.

And come up on me some furniture or somethin'

Got a VCR in the back of my car

And motherfuckers better not try to stop me

'Cause they will see that I can't be stopped

'Cause I'ma cock my Glock and pop 'til they all drop

The left is losing the Black vote. Time to drum up some racial incidents, and release a picture of the cop that killed Floyd George alongside a picture of a guy with a red hat with a racist slogan. Ice Cube tweets it out, not realizing he is part of a political dirty tricks operation. They are associating racism with Trump supporters because Biden is losing Black support. Now we have riots, these Leftists don't care about anything but winning elections.

There’s as many comments about him as there are about the dozens of people shot over the weekend, or about anyone else killed by police. His story isn’t special. What is special is a city going up in flames.

Assuming what people think by judging things they never said just makes you look stupid.
