Re: Protests

I’m not going to go into it, because I don’t have the patience to debate on forums like I used to, but I believe that the protesting is 100% justified. The CHAZ in Seattle was a complete failure of a social experiment though, other than that I support the protests.

Re: Protests

Yeah I?m not trying to start a flame war or anything I just want to understand. I stay off social media most of the time because it depresses me so I only check it once or twice a week. I don?t understand how burning down a federal courthouse solves ANYTHING. How is that peaceful? Also precisely what is everyone protesting? Police brutality? Police reform? Racism? If I could wave a wand and give the protesters whatever they wanted what would it be?

because nothing has been done about the reasons they started in the first place.

Police have been gunning people down and beating people indiscriminately with no consequences since... well, basically always. Couple that legalized highway robbery (see civil asset forfeiture) and and plainclothes home invasions and people are rightfully fed up with getting fucked over.

Re: Protests

When the city health department started issuing those memos that people should stop eating ass and engaging in polyamory to curb the spread of CV19 that was the last straw for white Portland zoomers

Re: Protests

Voting ain't got nothing to do with what they're protesting about though?
