How does that work with Trump's 7pm curfew?

So basically the beatings will continue until morale improves.

What time Trump will crawl back into his bunker, and humiliate himself

Does this curfew apply to everyone, including DeBlasio's daughter?

After largely peaceful protests Sunday, groups of people poured down the sidewalks in Manhattan's chic Soho neighborhood and other areas overnight, breaking into Rolex, Kate Spade and Prada boutiques and electronics stores. Hundreds of people were arrested.

People are stealing Rolex watches in order to honor George, the dead counterfeiter. People are destroying businesses, and jobs, in order to honor Floyd's life. Or are people burning buildings, and cars, in order to intimidate white people?

YrralToday 10:21 am JSTWhat time Trump will crawl back into his bunker, and humiliate himself

He has proven once again that is not so tough. And his tweets, babyish rants and threats to use the military (the states are utilizing their National Guards finely without his direction, thank you) only show even more that Trump is not all-powerful, and he certainly is not the man he claims to be. In fact, he is not a man at all. He was a coward when we had the draft and he shirks his duty and he's cowardly now. He can't face the music, America doesn't like/love/adore/worship/need/want him. He is a pathetic petulant CHICKEN.

If looting Rolexes, (stupid anyway) clothes from Chanel and torching Benz dealers is a sign of homage to the dead man, then I despair for the human race...

It should pay for the family's PCR tests after people contract covid from congregating together. Look for eBay listings to increase big time these next few weeks.

“People are doing this so next time, before they think about trying to kill another black person, they’re going to be like, ’Damn, we don’t want them out here doing this ... again,’” New York City resident Sean Jones said as he watched the destruction.

Disgusting comment. So this guy approves of violently attacking and damaging businesses that employ people and looting. Plus, I guess it's OK to kill a white person? He's part of the problem.

I think some people have a subconscious sense that the police are not really there to protect the people but rather there to protect rich people, their wealth, and their BS rules that made them wealthy.

Peaceful prostesting in St. Louis. Be warned:

so I guess the way that people can go to church is to dress up as rioters, enter the church and pretend to be trying to set fires. But then down and have a nice church service.

As no one will do anything about any of these rioters, they can get together in groups of hundreds. Church? no more than 10. cause rioters must be exempt from the corona if they follow the curfew hours.

Indeed. And the worst bit is they wear badges and have sworn to uphold the law.

White Leftist are instigating the mayhem:

Yes, that is clear enough from the various non-media filtered footage we can see on social media.

Watch now as the Left deflects to Trump as a way to deny the failures of their rule of urban centers in America over the last half century. The media, Progressive politicians, antifa, other Leftist extremist groups and other ideological extremists are looking you straight in the fact and daring you to call them out. Both Left and Right agree on what happened - an innocent man was murdered. Yet it is radical elements of the Left that are causing a deepening of America's racial divisions. I don't understand what it is they are trying to accomplish. It's madness.

So if the protesters want to loot 3 pairs of expensive trainers to honor the dead guy, they will have to do it before 11:00. No problem.

@Numan: Watch how the right and trump supporter's back a time-honored American political tradition, disavowing racism while promising to enact a broad agenda of discrimination.

Did you read the articles you posted? The first article just says white people where throwing things and it makes the assumption that they are white nationalists without providing any evidence.

Berkihiser said “Caucasian individuals” threw rocks and bottles containing cayenne pepper at police.

No one is claiming there isn't racism. Many are making the point that the racism in these Progressive cities have been going on for half a century. The antifa people that are embedding themselves within the protests and then handing bricks to young black men to throw are a serious problem. Progressives are minimizing corrosive their impact on civil society and race relations. To what end I don't know.

The second article is 2 years old about a white nationalist who is not involved in the current rioting precipitated by antifa and other Leftist groups.

Police Chief Jarrad Berkihiser said police have “definite evidence” that white nationalist groups were among the crowds of people who demonstrated over the weekend in response to the death of George Floyd during an arrest in Minneapolis.

And "white nationalist groups" would demonstrate about the death of George Floyd why, exactly? I would like see some of that "definite evidence".

The curfew time was rolled back from 11pm to 8pm.

The Republican party is insane.

I upvoted your post.

Unfortunately, the term 'insane' these days is rhetorical enough that it alienates people without a strong opinion.

As such, I propose we start using an accurate and descriptive, but non-rhetorical word, that clearly defines why their actions have led to where we're at: Unreasonable.

The Republican party is unreasonable.

Strangerland: More fake-news conspiracy theories from your MSM I see.

Do you really think there are large numbers of white supremacists moving so easily among black activists in black urban communities? The very idea is absurd. Klan types would be going after black people instead of the police. The White rioters are themselves activist who hate the police. You are in denial.

We're done giving those credence as being worthy of discussion. Since you've made honest discussion impossible.

Why isn’t it worth discussing Leftist anarchists taking advantage of a tragedy to destroy black communities? Like white nationalism, it is eating away at civil society. Just because someone hates the other side doesn’t make it incumbent upon them to make excuses for their own side. Both forms of extremism are debilitating to a society. Why is it impossible for the Left to name and shame Leftist radicals who are sowing social discord?

I believe much the protests are pent up anger from police in the US becoming so violent and getting away with decades of institutional abuse of power in many ways. There are over a thousand videos of police abusing people by overstepping their authority and escalating simple things into physical and verbal abuse, up to deadly force.

No one should condone any violence and looting.

There would no protests or looting if the police were not out of control.

At least something is being done. The MPD canned the murderous cop and Louisville's mayor fired the police chief of his city. A cop there killed a Black American chef who gave free meals to police there and one of them killed him! Unacceptable.

Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., was caught on a hot mic Tuesday saying he “wouldn’t care” about not being allowed to speak at a news conference about the unrest in his Bronx district following the death of George Floyd – if he wasn't in a competitive Democratic primary.
