Yes, but when they’re defunded they can’t and that’s happening more and more and the crime rate continues to rise
Don't defund the police or they'll shoot people just like they already are? That's compelling argument, Bass. Lolololol

But it slowed a minor to go out. So if he smokes you want to blame The liquor store for selling him cigarettes?
Yes Bass, I'd blame the liquor store that is required by law to check his ID for failing to check his ID.
He did, watch the video
I watched the video. He had his hands up when he turned around. They shot him after he had his hands up and turned around, exactly like the police told him to do.
And yet the people that aren’t experts want to tell the experts how they should conduct their jobs? Rich...
Yeah, Bass because I think 200americans shot dead by the police is too much. You don't?

Liberals wanting to give bad parents and parenting skills an excuse
nah, bad parenting didn't aim a loaded gun and the kid and shoot him. The parents aren't on trial here.
I’m blaming the parents, but I do blame the kid for having on him a firearm
Lol Nah, he had his hands up. He didn't have a gun. And again, having a gun isn't a crime.
Not really, people that don’t know anything about firearms or policing want to blame the police but never been out on the beat, let alone shoot a gun or dealt with gangs or drug dealers.
lol and you do? You don't have to be an expert to know that 160 people being shot and killed is too much.
\I will go to say there is always room for improvement,
And hell is hot, what an understatement.
at night running in a dark ally with their hands in their pocket,
Again, he didn't have his hand in his pocket. They were up and you can see them in the still frame. https://am24.mediaite.com/lc/cnt/uploads/2021/04/Adam-Toledo-1.jpg
you will not get a drop on me. My life matters to me because it’s my life and I don’t have time to qualify what your problem is. I’m a cop, I give commands that need to be followed and if you don’t follow them and run in those
And that is why you should never be a cop. My God, you think its okay to just shoot people because your life matters more than theirs? Absolutely disgusting.

We already covered that. Again, and in spite of all this, No child should be out after 2pm there’s absolutely zero excuse for that and if you can’t keep watch of your child that reflects poorly on you as a parent.
2pm? Gonna make it kind of hard to ho home from school. Who cares what the excuse was? The dumb cop shouldn't have shot a kid with his hands up. Stop blaming the kid and start blaming the cowardly, poorly trained, out-of-shape cop who shot a kid who had his hands up, exactly like he was told to.

You cherry picked your quote there. i demonstrated ways to be visible and reduce your appearance as a threat
America has more guns per capita than any other developed country. It's high time the good guys with guns grow a pair and do their job. Where am I wrong?

As bad as it was, the bigger question is, what reason and why was a 13 year old out that late to begin with?
lol no, its really not. Even if he should have been at home, the cop shouldn't have shot him.
There is absolutely no way as a parent I would allow my kids to even be up that late let alone be on the streets with a firearm. Where were his parents?
Who knows? Maybe they were working multiple jobs to try and make ends eat, because minimum wage hasn't kept up with inflation.

Who 0.8 seconds prior this this had a gun in his hand. A gun that was recovered next to him and gunshot residue found on his hand.
He had a gun in his hands in America? Well that solves the case, he deserved to get shot! Everyone knows guns are illegal in America, and if the police see you with a gun in your hand they have every right to shoot and kill you. :D

So then they’re driving illegally which in itself is a crime, how do they get around? They all have bikes? They all take the bus? In every major metropolitan city?
Yes, a lot of people in large cities either walk, bike, carpool, or take public transportation to work; it's not hard to believe ~20% of blacks/minorities don't have licenses.
If they didn’t, Democrats wouldn’t be opposed to IDs.
Nonsense. Prove illegals vote in droves, you can't.
The reason they're opposed to it, is because they no voter ID laws will depress minority turnout, which skews towards Democrats. https://www.aclu.org/other/oppose-voter-id-legislation-fact-sheet
Joe Greenberg, and possibly, Matt Gaetz, are accused of using fake and expired IDs to traffic underage prostitutes. You can fake a driver's license.

The myth that it's harder for blacks/minorities to get an ID is just that. Even a poor black person can catch a bus to the DMV and get an ID.
Lol calling something a myth doesn't make it so. Fact: Blacks and minorities are less likely to have drivers licenses. slate.com/news-and-politics/2012/08/voter-id-laws-why-do-minorities-lack-id-to-show-at-the-polls.amp
If anything it targets illegal immigrants who shouldn't be voting in the first place.
Riiiiggghhhtttt because we all know illegal immigrants vote in droves.
We also know there is no way to make fake IDs, right Matt Gaetz and Joe Greenberg?:D

Context would be that Michigan is not known for “trump supporters”
Michigan isn't known for mask supporters? Who were the nice folks that broke into the Michigan state capital and plotted to kidnap the government?
and that Pfizer was in fact part of Warp Speed as they had a purchase contract.

Sgt Mercil asked if he can see the placement of Chauvin's head? Yes. Another photo 1046, you can see Mr Chauvin's knee between the shoulder blade of Mr Floyd? Yes Sir. Does this appear to be a neck restraint? No Sir
You're not seriously going to try and claim Chauvin didn't choke him now, are you? Seriously, after all the video evidence and witness statements, that's what you're going to try and pull? Brilliant.

Biden will get it done. He has a $1.9 trillion slush fund to fill those pallets up with - only a fraction of which was designated for covid relief. There’s plenty of cash to make the Islamic extremists happy.
Lol nice spin there. The cash on "palates" you are talking about was THEIR money. It was seized by the US and was returned- not taxpayer money, like you are alleging.
As for the money for Islamic extremists; are you just as upset about the billions in weapons the Trump administration sold the Saudis? It seems the Right hates Iranians, because their extremists, but seem not just turn the other way when it comes to doing business with the Saudi government, which actually funded the 9/11 terror attacks.

the left is not going to control the narrative that Floyd had no hand in this,
The "left" absolutely will. It doesn't matter how I'll he was had Chauvin not sat on his neck for 9 minutes, he wouldn't have died. That is murder. His addictions and health problems are irrelevant.
No that is what the report says, I didn’t write it up, the Coroner did.
The coroner noted the chemicals in his system, but didn't say they killed him. The cause of death is listed as homicide.
No one is saying that, but given the level of drugs and severe clogged arteries and heart disease, this guy was a ticking time bomb, don’t conflate the two.
That is exactly what you are saying. You said it right above and now you're writing it here. It's not "Chauvin's fault, he was a ticking time bomb."

The autopsy states that.
That is not what the autopsy report states. That is you editorializing. There are no autopsy reports saying George Floyd died because of heart disease or any other illness.

What Chauvin did was take matter into his own hands and that is his own fault, not every single police officer in the entire country.
Except they're pretty protected by their union from just about any sort of wrongdoing. There is a problem with police brutality and the police need to do something about it.

I never said that. Calling the police for someone refusing to give back items that they paid with a fake bill is procedure of a store owner/staff. However, you want to jump to extremes and put words in peoples' mouths
That seems to be your implication. What are you actually trying to say then?

Paying with one then refusing to give back the merchandise is when the police are naturally called.
Okay and then that is when the police naturally kneel on your neck 9 natural minutes?

What's missing from this story and what isn't talked about enough is the allegations of fake IDs. There are texts linking Matt Gaetz, a conservative Republican, to the manufacture or fake IDs.
I find this supremely ironic considering how Republicans insist that voter ID laws are needed to protect the "fidelity" of elections. I guess IDs don't always work?

Still, the drug life is what killed him.

Bottom line - no war and no one willing to be a source on the record equals propaganda in today’s media environment.
What a low bar to stumble over. No war? Well we haven't had a war with Iran, have we? What did all of Donald's bluster actually accomplish? Nothing.
Obama/Biden did a dirty deal with the state sponsor of terror- the same regime that was at the same time killing US military personnel in Iraq.
A state sponsor of terror? Oh, I wonder you call Saudi Arabia? You know the government who funded the 9/11 terrorists. Totally fine selling them weapons, huh.

So these sanctions that were supposedly so bad and a miscalculation- they were removed by the Biden-Harris administration right?
No, withdrawing from the Iran Nuke deal was a stupid idea. You can't even call it a "plan." There was no plan; no actual thought. Trump's actions put the US in greater danger and actually got US contractors killed. Good on the Biden administration for fixing Trump's screw up.

Anyone familiar with U.S. elections will understand why Georgia did it. And Texas. And why every other State should follow. They’re doing their best to preserve election integrity.
This is a solution in need of a problem.
Despite best efforts of American media and Big Tech
Ohhhh, How many votes did "big tech" change? My rightwing nonsense.
many do not believe the “official” results of the 2020 elections. Censoring doesn’t change facts, it only attempts to suppress them.
lolololol Many peoples' "feelings" aren't facts. No one cares about feelings. But here's a "fact" for you: Donald Trump lost Georgia fair and square. Warnock and Ossoff won fair and square, and that is the real reason for voter suppression in Georgia.

A felon can vote again once they have repaid their debt to society. You are spreading election misinformation
Paid your debt to society? No. You can only vote in Florida after you pay fines and expenses, even if you've already served your time in prison.

no one executed nor strangled this person. Words chosen to inflame tensions, incite emotions and escalate this into something it isnt.
Lol if he wasn't strangled, how did he die? What word should we use to describe the death of man who had someone kneeling on his neck?
It is highly unlikely this Floyd death can be considered an intentional act or any type of desired outcome based on what we have seen so far.
Highly unlikely? Nonsense. Chauvin wouldn't have been charged unless prosecutors thought they could make the case.

This person under the influence of multiple illegal substances
is also pictured above...behind the wheel of a vehicle trying to drive off.
Nonsense. He didn't try to drive off. He complied with the officers.
He could have left with his drug dealer in the backseat and crashed into someone's Grandma and killed her.
Or he could have found a cure for cancer. Both are utterly irrelevant.
Or he and the drug dealer could have gone to....you know...deal drugs as that is what a drug dealer does.
Well that proves it. If he's dealing drugs the only logical thing for the cops to do is to execute him. We don't need courts, do we?!
