Whatever it is, it’s not systemic. Given the millions of police interactions in a year, a few bad incidents is to be expected. No one is 100% all the time.

Except you have no evidence for your claim. It's obviously widespread enough that police feel comfortable doing it in front of other police.

Wut? You're saying there's a police policy to purposefully harm people? In the Floyd case, the cops actually followed their training exactly. If you think it's systemic, show your evidence (not just hand waiving and conspiracy theories).

Yes and no--you're no doubt referring to that previously being an acceptable restraint.

What you are missing is they had no reason to do that at all, there was no reason to take him out of the car and hurt him. That was purely punitive.

I read the article you linked. Where does it say these alleged criminals are protesting against Thanksgiving?

The article had photos of the vandalism. Did you read the graffiti? And ponder what day it was yesterday? Does everything need to be spoon-fed to you like you are a preschooler?

Given the number of "false flag protesters", a rational disinterested adult would hesitate to jump to a conclusion on such scant evidence.

There have been some false flags, but they have been few and far between compared to genuine "protester" violence.
They arrested three of the vandals (and released them without bail - typical Portlandia!) They do not look like Proud Bois doing false flag stuff but rather like actual Antifas.

"Look like"? Most people when they find themselves in a hole, stop digging.

Why do some people feel the need to jump so quickly to conclusions.

They look more like Sad Sacks to me which means they are probably Proud Boys false flagging.

Right-wingers continue to be arrested for violence against Biden supporters and at BLM protests

This thread was looking like another total fail, so I thought I'd help it out. Good thing "Protester" is in scare quotes in the thread title, right?

Trump and sycophants ramp up the violence against Biden supporters and at BLM protests, claim election was stolen from them

Donald Trump has continually claimed the leftist-anarchist network Antifa is behind the initial burning of buildings and other violence in protests over police killings of African Americans. Trump has claimed Antifa was a terrorist organization, wrongly and cynically saying the largely anarchistic movement that has existed in some form since at least the 1970s was operated by Democrats.

But it’s more likely that those who have nothing to do with Antifa — especially far-right Trump supporters — have been doing much of the violence at protests and other places, according to numerous media reports.

Only in your mind.

Nobody here, least of all me, is defending violence committed by Proud Boys et al.
But it is you and several others who always deny or defend violence committed by #BLM, Antifa and others.


Some blogger at Medium said:

This Kevin Shay guy is doing the same as you have been doing - deny all left-wing violence and insist it must all be due to right-wing false flags.
In reality both groups have engaged in violence and pox on both their houses!
