    well sadly there is only one real place to play professional football. and his "banishment" has nothing to do with the government. and the NFL has tons of well paid black players so your throwing the race card is idiotic

    I don't know that I fully agree, in Dallas they convicted a female officer and sent her to prison and in Ft Worth they are going to put an officer on trial and off to prison for a similar shooting. DFW has done hard work cleaning up their Police Depts and have made good strides towards correcting the issue. Yes, not everyone is and it still isn't perfect but at least some have been and are trying to get there

    Re: Do you support the rioting?

    I don't like the looting and rioting but when you systematically violate our Constitutional rights people are going to fight back when their voices are not being heard.

    I sense Conservatives are more likely to not support the rioting which I find strange because they are huge 2A supporters and act like if someone came to get their guns it'd be an all at war because it's their Constitutional right to own a gun. Why are they not so supportive of other people fighting for our other rights? Also, I would be on the side on the 2A riots too if it came down to that.
    Trump November 2013: "Leadership: Whatever happens, you're responsible. If it doesn't happen, you're responsible."

    Trump as President of the United States March 2020:
    “I don't take responsibility at all”

    EDIT: I am not asking if you support protesting. That is not the same as rioting.
    No.
    Violence is never the answer.

    It just sinks it down to the level the protesting was about in the 1st place.

    In the Floyd case, they are as bad and wrong as the cop kneeler killer.

    The only ones who profit from this kind of reaction are those who used it to rob, and get the thrill of anarchic destruction.

    Oh yeah, and the progressive ideologues who can use it for propaganda purposes pushing their divisive grievance politics.
    Damn tRUMP, calling for killing the rioters. Just to push his propaganda for his divisive grievance politics.

    That is some progress, to be sure, but that remains the exception rather than the rule. Both of those cases involved a "suspect" being shot dead in their own home by a police officer who was in clear violation of department policy.
