If ever a riot was justified after a police killing then this must be it. Watching the video made me want to cry, couldn't even feel angry about it, it was just heart-breaking that a human being can be so indifferent to another man's suffering. I know there's far worse examples out there (beheadings and what have you) but given the circumstances those images are surely going to resonate for a very long time. In the heat of the moment and with the adrenalin pumping it's not altogether surprising that people get shot dead by cops, but this - In the street in full view of passers by when the guy has got time to think about what he's doing - is something else.

I think what is most disturbing is the three officers just looking on. Doing nothing.

If I was a good cop and I saw the amount of people the bad cops get away with murdering I'd stop being a cop

Would you not join internal affairs instead?

Not doing nothing, telling the people shouting at them that they are killing a man “this is why you don’t  do drugs”.

(Link removed while I was replying)

Reminds me of a video I saw a while back. Bunch of African-American guys sat outside smoking weed, legally. Another guy shows up at some point and is kind of hanging about. The pigs arrive and make a beeline for the new guy, search him, and find a gun.

Now the rest of them start getting searched, because there's a valid reason to do so.

The obvious plant is then sent on his way and discreetly leaves the scene.

If I done a murder on film, I think it’s only fair that I get fired.

It’s a fair cop (not literally).

It's very easy to get into that narrative, but which are these supposedly non-existent cops (if there's no good cops) - who are these people who capture paedos and arms dealers and terrorists and Grade A drug smugglers?Which of these things listed are good for society?

In some ways cultural unrest is the BIGGEST fuck you to those cops who either think or defend those wankers that can supposedly without consequence kneel on a man's throat and kill him. Fuck them, they deserve that chaos. But at the same time hundreds or thousands of people unwittingly may get caught up in that wave and suffer the consequences of someone else's issues.

Hard not to think 'fair enough' in this instance re: the rioting, though it all hinges of whether or not it's your place getting looted I suppose.

Still don't think we'll see anything on the scale of the Rodney King riots of the early 1990s.

Over a dozen complaints and according to internet gossip possibly related to other civilian deaths

three (3) fatal police shootings (2006, 2008, 2011)

a car chase that resulted in 3 fatalities

George Floyd

Not sure how true the above quotes are but they can easily be found or dismissed by someone.

and according to this:

https://bringmethenews.com/minnesota-news/derek-chauvin-what-we-know-about-the-officer-at-center-of-george-floyds-death

Quote
– He has been involved in three officer-involved shootings: that of Wayne Reyes in 2006, and Ira Latrell Toles in 2008, and Leroy Martinez in 2011.

– In the 2006 incident, Chauvin was one of six officers to fire a weapon in the death of Wayne Reyes. Police said Reyes pointed a sawed-off shotgun at officers after stabbing two people.

– In the Toles case, Chauvin shot and wounded Toles after the suspect tried to grab the officer's gun. Police had been called to a report of a home invasion.

– Martinez was shot in the torso after being chased by police at the Little Earth Housing Complex in south Minneapolis, with Chauvin one of the five officers involved.

– The Pioneer Press reported that Chauvin had been given a medal of valor by the department in 2008 for an incident involving a man armed with a gun.

– In April 2005, Chauvin and Officer Terry Nutter were involved in a car chase when the suspect vehicle slammed a car containing Darwin Vivar, 28, and Klevar Jacome, 35, who died instantly. Another person in the car, Everett Vivar, 35, died a few days later.

– Twin Cities journalist Tony Webster reports that Chauvin received two letters of reprimand in 2007, and was orally reprimanded in 2003 on multiple occasions for allegations of using a demeaning tone and derogatory language. A further seven complaints were made against him, with the cases closed with no action taken.

– He met his wife when he noticed her at a hospital when he brought suspect in for a health check before arrest, and returned to ask her out, according to the Washington Times. She said "under all that uniform, he’s just a softie."

– They live in Oakdale, joining the estimated 94 percent (in 2014) of Minneapolis police officers who live outside the city.

- This tweet lists the complaints filed against Chauvin and officer Tou Thao – who is the only other of the four officers involved in Floyd's death identified so far. This Star Tribune story details some of Thao's history.

Not sure rioting really solves anything long term.  Back in 2011 when the riots were happening here, a lot of the business that got done over were owned by those minorites in the communities most affected.  Wholly understand the anger and I suppose in the hightened situation its easy to say from where we are you need to focus that anger in a more positive direction.

I often think what people like Derek Chauvin think about when their actions have resulted in all these protests, riots, lootings, violence.
Do they feel responsible or do they hide away?

It's more likely to get something done than not rioting. Those in power don't care about a dead black man. They don't care about a hundred dead black men. They do care about property being smashed up, about the economy being hit, about tourists being scared to visit, about people looking at that place and thinking "what a racist shithole", about the cost to repair police stations and streets, about being seen to lose control.

So yeah, burn it the fuck up.

for some reason it always comes accross to me, like an anti-colonial riot, like the Irish 1916 Easter Rising or one of the Palestinian Infitadas that spring up every 5 years
