    The President thinks there is no reason for this kind of violence BECAUSE it is counterproductive, not because it hurts other people.

    I can't believe an American president thinks like this.

    And apparently it only occurred to the prisoner to do this in the presence of police. Naturally.

    Thought this was interesting. I guess it takes the wind out of the 'tacit approval' crowd.
    I find this sort of broad condemnation counterproductive. When you project this sort of dismissive attitude, you are also dismissing the context that the "rioters" exist in. I have little patience for all of the people eager to condemn the "rioters" while have much less to say about systemic racism.

    The claim doesn't fit the evidence and contradicts what he said earlier.

    My guess is that the police "pressured" the prisoner to change his story.

    My guess is that inner city areas are at a literal breaking point where just the assumption of Police brutality causes violence and riots.

    Who cares what the truth is. Riot first, ask questions later.

    Thanks to the idiots who pushed the " hands up dont shoot " narrative, and the idiots that jumped the gun on Trayvon Martin ( including the Obama administration ) from now on every Democrat run ghetto in the Country is one allegation away from riot city.

    Are you trying to say there are times or reasons that it is OK to destroy and burn down other people's property?

    No, there is no excuse for the violence and absolutely none for the looting.

    That has nothing to do with whether or not I or they recognize that systemic racism exists.
