Violent Rioters Breach Ohio Statehouse,
Breaking Windows and Entering Building
to Protest Death of George Floyd

Original Article

Posted By: Harlowe, 5/29/2020 2:27:41 PM

Rioters in Columbus, Ohio, launched an attack on the Statehouse in the early hours of Friday morning to protest the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Floyd, who was unarmed and subdued with handcuffs, died after a police officer pinned his neck to the ground with his knee and held it there until he stopped breathing. Protests and riots are ongoing in several cities around the U.S., including Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minn., Memphis, Tenn., Louisville, Ky., Denver, Colo., Los Angeles Calif., and Columbus, Ohio. The Statehouse in Columbus came under attack, with rioters breaking windows and some entering the building.

Comments:

Although social media allows for spontaneous protests, it may not be inappropriate to consider the possibility that these riots are not spontaneous but are orchestrated.

Rioters in Ohio. Ohio is at least 800 miles away from Minnesota. So most likely these people are just put to destroy. Destroying other peoples property is a crime. Act of violence. Shoot them

The criminal actions of one cop (Or 4) in Minnesota do not in any way justify destruction of property in Ohio. No one is taking the side of this cop but any unity we may had has been destroyed by looting violent thugs who see this an opportunity.

The "Protests' are just a media narrative to bash the Trump Admin...The Floyd Killing in Minnesota was reprehensible.... But the narrative fits for the leftist goals....So they, the Media push it. Saw a story last evening by a local Minneapolis Station that may be the crux of the situation(?) It was being reported that the two men Floyd and Chavin (sp?) were co-workers at a South Minneapolis Bar; Floyd worked inside as a Bar Security, and the Cop (Chavin) was working outside as an off-duty, city police officer. Jobs they had both apparently held for several years. So probably, they knew each other...Was there some personal animosity? Could Be. Will have to wait for the Criminal trial of the Police Officer.... A ",,,Rest of the story ending...? " You better get ready for it! [ P.S. Note to Media: Quit calling them 'Protests' they are freaking destructive RIOTS! ]

#1, you bet these riots are not spontaneous. These actions are well rehearsed way in advance to use when an excuse comes along. This isn't about George Floyd. This is about raising hell and any excuse will do. Where are the fire hoses???? Tear gas and dogs? I am disgusted with what happened to Floyd but these riots are not the anecdote to the actions that brought about his demise.

Everyone has the Right to Assembly. No one has the Right to Riot. No one has the Right to Loot. If you are breaking the Laws, in a manner that endangers your fellow citizens, the police, the National Guard and, for that matter, citizens utilizing their Right to bear Arms, may shoot you. So, all you BLM, KKK, and other Anarchists, take note. Step out of line and die.

No reason for this. Peaceful protest is one thing, attacking a capital house for something that happened hundreds of miles away in another state is completely different. Start firing warning shots, then just start firing away if they don't stop.

I am so disgusted with these riots. These are NOT protests. Once they start doing damage, it is a riot and they should be tear gassed and water hosed, then escalate as necessary. I was just watching Martha Macallum on FOX news and they had a live feed from Minneapolis where dozens of hoodlums were trashing police cars while hundreds were close nearby holding up cell phone cameras. Take away the media, take away the helicopters, fire up the tear gas, water cannons and National Guard. Mr. Floyd does not deserve to have his life associated with this massive lawbreaking. He may or may not have been a petty criminal, but he did not deserve to die - and no matter what the coroner says, he would still be alive today if that cop hadn't had his knee on his neck for 9 minutes!

Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) fired back Saturday at President Trump's tweets threatening to handle protesters demonstrating in front of the White House with "vicious dogs" and the "most ominous weapons" if they breached the building's fence. (Snip) “I thought the president’s remarks were gross. To make a reference to vicious dogs is no subtle reminder to African Americans of segregationists who let dogs out on innocent [people],” Bowser said at a press conference Saturday. The mayor said the rhetoric Trump has used surrounding the protests in Minneapolis stokes division and incites violence.

A shift to mail voting is increasing the chances that Americans will not know the winner of November’s presidential race on election night, a scenario that is fueling worries about whether President Donald Trump will use the delay to sow doubts about the results. State election officials in some key battleground states have recently warned that it may take days to count what they expect will be a surge of ballots sent by mail out of concern for safety amid the pandemic. In an election as close as 2016's, a delayed tally in key states could keep news organizations from calling a winner.
