Shut up and comply

In regards to The Facts view of the Floyd “incident”: It was very bad. One person died and four cops were arrested and charged with murder. It seems The Facts is condemning the whole white race of mistreating minorities and justifying their rioters’ actions. This is wrong.

Pj Beaty, please point out where Mr. Floyd did not comply. Was it when he had 4 people on top of him cutting off his air way for 8 minutes and 46 seconds? Was it when he was removed from his car and placed in handcuffs then placed on the sidewalk? Remember Philando Castille? He did everything right, followed police instructions, and was still executed by them. Or Breona Taylor who was sleeping in her bed and was murdered by the police? Thanks for being part of the problem.

Natives5 – what you said – except the fact that Floyd suffered from claustraphobia. In the security cam footiage is seen Floyd’s resistance to being placed into the patrol car. That caused the murderer to overreact and to yank him across the seat and out onto the pavement for the purpose of murdering him.[sad]

Mr. Beaty’s concerns possibly resulted from the June 10 editorial headlined by: “OUR VIEWPOINT: Peaceful protests gratifying, but only beginning” written by Micheal Morris, in which he discussed the Angleton demonstrations on June 9. The editorial is well thought out and mostly says peaceful demonstrations are constructive but the work must be continued regarding discrimination.

First, I can’t find editorial your thoughts in the editorial: “the Facts condems whole white race of mistreating minorities and justifying their rioters’ actions.” I reread it several times and it doesn’t say that. What gives? Must be simply your opinion of the times, huh? I would point out that reasonable demonstrations following the murder of Mr. Floyd are.not surprising - police unlawfully murdered him. Arson, burglary, theft and distruction of property are wrong.

Second, you are correct, complying with an officer’s commands probably is a good choice.

Yep, it’s loony all right. I’ve previously thought to count the separate and unrelated concepts, ramblings, phrases, words in these tomes – at least 18 in this one. I appreciate all the learned references, so I can google new information and be informed. However, I didn’t find communist teachings of childen caused the race riots and the country’s economic slump; but maybe it’s out there to be found. I did find that ten of ViacomCBS channels paused 8 + minutes on June 1, so it’s more than Elmer Fudd and the 2nd Amendment. They simply are participating in the respect being offered for Mr. Floyd by many. I plan not to re-read 1984 or Atlas Shrugged. The remainder of the other 18 are repeats from past letters.[offtopic]

I thought the article on local protests were fair. Nationwide the propaganda media justifying violent, stealing , destructive rioters is like honoring the man of lawlessness. The devil

It was wrong how Drew Brees is being treated. Forcing ones ideals on another and other idiots demanding he retire is racist.

I won’t be watching the NFL if they start the kneeling. As a Vietnam Era Vet that’s my protest and my right to do so , after men being put on body bags whom gave their life for their nation.

Exactly how was that racist against Drew Brees? Get ready for a slow sport season, PJBM. There will be plenty of kneeling especially since trump is telling the athletes they can't and the leagues are backing their players. Just like it is your right to protest by not watching the NFL, it is their right to protest racial inequality by taking a knee during the national anthem. Those people who sacrificed their lives for this country in the numerous wars did it for all of us. Curious...do you view those people who are standing in line for the bathroom or concession stand, or those people walking to find their seats during the national anthem and who don't stand at attention during the song in the same manner as your view the NFL players who kneel?
