Colin Kaepernick broke his silence on the death of George Floyd on Thursday, expressing support for the ongoing protests in Minneapolis. Police have used tear gas and water cannons on protesters. On Wednesday night, the second night of protests, several stores were set ablaze and some were looted. “When civility leads to death, revolting is the only logical reaction," Kaepernick said in posts on Instagram and Twitter. "The cries for peace will rain down, and when they do, they will land on deaf ears, because your violence has brought this resistance. “We have the right to fight back!” Kaepernick closed

Comments:

Maybe he will pay for the millions in dollars in property damages if he supports the response.

I agree with #1, who cares what Kaepernick thinks. But these aren't "protesters," those would be legitimate. What that cop did is indefensible. But these are thugs. As is Kaepernick.

Kaepernick i8s a racist, plain and simple. He also has an over inflated sense of his own importance. No one cares about your perspectives, Colin.

The couple who took in this kid and raised him had no idea that the boy they raised, and the man who was skilled enough to play professional football would meet a Muslim woman who would turn him into an idiot. I have seen it before, many men have gotten their first piece of tail and lost all intelligence they had. Sex is a weapon used by some women, and some men are particularly vulnerable. If he had not met this Muslim Jezabel, he would have had a future. He forgot everything his adopted parents ever taught him. He was one lucky youth to have been raised like a loved child And a stupid ass for letting a bigoted cult member lead him to this.

MINNEAPOLIS - Following several days of peaceful-turned-chaotic protests over the death of George Floyd, the Minneapolis National Guard, who have been called to assist local authorities in the ongoing unrest, posted a picture to their Twitter account which appeared to show some of the exhausted soldiers sleeping. The caption read, “It’s been a long night for Citizen-Soldiers and Airmen.” (Tweet) Floyd died on May 25 in Minneapolis after a white police officer pressed a knee into his neck.

Tens of thousands of people took to the streets across the country to protest the death of George Floyd, a black man who died on May 25 in Minneapolis after a white police officer pressed a knee into his neck. Many demonstrations have started off peaceful but turned violent, leading to nearly 1,700 arrests in 17 U.S. cities and sparking heated debates among partisan pundits, who blame the other side for the chaos.

In politics your friends are more trouble than your enemies. Joe Biden is experiencing this phenomenon right now. Even though Democratic voters and interests detest President Trump to an unprecedented degree, the squabbling factions of their coalition continue to impose demands on Biden and parse every word, making sure he doesn’t violate ideological norms and sensibilities — potentially costing him the presidency. America’s two-party system forces candidates for president to cobble together a big coalition of interests and demographics that sit uncomfortably under a big tent. The result is competing demands and constant jockeying for influence. These interests often lose

As protests and unrest continued in Minneapolis following the killing of George Floyd, people are questioning the identity of a man filmed smashing windows. Footage emerged of the white man, dressed all in black, and in gloves and boots, calmly smashing the windows of an auto parts store with a large hammer. His face is obscured by an expensive-looking gas mask and he is also holding an open black umbrella — although it was not raining. Twitter quickly christened him 'Umbrella Man'. The strange choice of clothes for a warm day, combined with the high quality gas mask, raised suspicions. He

WASHINGTON/NEW YORK - U.S. President Donald Trump is trusted more than Democratic nominee Joe Biden to handle the economy, polls show, even with more than 40 million Americans filing jobless claims and growth stalled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Some Biden supporters fear that vulnerability could intensify if Trump becomes the face of an economic recovery as the country re-opens after shutdowns, giving the Republican president's re-election prospects a boost when he needs it most. Biden is expected to release a large-scale recovery plan in the coming weeks. Democrats are watching closely to see if his message matches the moment

Of the 45 people arrested for rioting, unlawful assembly, stolen property, burglary or robbery on May 29 and May 30 so far, 38 had Minnesota addresses, according to publicly available jail records reviewed by FOX 9.

The former Minneapolis police officer who knelt on the neck of George Floyd for eight minutes before he died was arrested Friday and charged by Hennepin County prosecutors with third-degree murder and manslaughter. Within hours, the Justice Department had also announced it was investigating Floyd's death and was looking into charges for possible federal civil rights violations. Both developments occurred unusually quickly for a case involving an on-duty police officer, legal experts told Insider on Friday. Now, the question has become how tightly prosecutors can button up their case against the officer, Derek Chauvin, and what will become of the

President Donald Trump tweeted that he was designating Antifa as a terrorist organization. That followed Trump and Attorney General William Barr earlier pointing to anti-fascist organizers and anarchists as culprits behind the mayhem following the death of a 46-year-old black man, George Floyd, at the hands of Minneapolis police. Others said right-wing extremists such as Boogaloo followers, who hope to bring about a second Civil War, were pushing for such uprising in the protests.

Rice's made the claim after top Democrats insisted for years that the White House had conspired with Russia, although Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence to support any conspiracy with Russia by any U.S. actor to influence the 2016 election

Rice said, “It’s really fundamentally a problem of our society still bearing the vestiges and the realities every day of racial disparities and prejudice, and that’s what needs to be addressed. We need leadership, Wolf, that is interested in our common humanity, in treating all Americans as if they count and belong equally.
