    So was he actually holding a gun or not?

    How stupid do you have to be to fight cops and wave a weapon at them? Pretty damn stupid. If anyone black or white waves a weapon at a cop they should be immediately shot. No more questions and discussion.
    I’m actually at the point where I think some blacks want to be shot by the cops just to set off more riots. Talk about stupid.

    Mike, I’m totally with you, right on the mark. If a criminal like Floyd could be praised as a hero and has its picture painted everywhere, who wouldn’t want to be like him, especially people with nothing left?

    Michelle and Mike…. ooooh Michelle and Mike. You guys cracked it. Solved it for us. Black people everywhere in this country are up against the ropes and literally sacrificing themselves as martyrs for a cause, because that’s what black people do when they’re up against the ropes – off themselves. White people, they pick themselves up by the bootstraps and try to get themselves out of the hole they’re in, but black people, yea they don’t value life the same way so they just kill themselves to be martyrs. It’s definitely that, and definitely absolutely positively not anything to do with the systematic issues that the protesters are protesting about.

    /end of sarcasm. In case that wasn’t obvious enough for you.

    This shooting was probably justified. That’s why no one seems to be losing their minds over it and it’s being covered by local news, not national news. You’re the ones leaving comments and making up some crazy narrative of self-immolation and martyrdom that fits whatever story you want to believe, validating whatever preconceived ideas you have. Why?

    Just because this shooting was justified doesn’t all of a sudden mean the protests are invalid.
