The police need to replace the rubber bullets with Metallic ones
As wrong as the optics and killing of Floyd was, its not like the guy was any of these people's father. So what is fueling all of this rage and violence? Have people simply snapped because of the long shutdown? Peaceful protest is one thing, petition for the government to hear grievances is another, but this is pure, unmitigated anarchy for the SAKE of anarchy and it is reprehensible how they are just letting it go on and on.

Who will get stuck paying for all of this? The peaceful taxpayer who wasn't part of this at all.

They should go in there and announce 2 minutes to disburse. After that, full auto weapons, flame throwers and tanks, whatever it takes, to mow down and arrest anything still moving. Enough already.
Ok, you do that. Let’s say you actually do that. You have flamethrowers. I am not even sure if we have any left in the inventory but whatever. You bring in Tanks, and the rest. You give the two minute announcement. You even give the order to open fire.
You seem to be missing the point. These people are not protesting. Have all these people been wrongly attacked by the police? Had a family member wrongly killed? Close relatives to George Floyd? It has gone far beyond protesting. They carry signs saying NO JUSTICE NO PEACE. Well guess what? They were getting justice! Those cops lost their jobs! The one is arrested and charged with murder! But instead of letting the system work first, MOBS of people all across this country in cities totally unrelated to Minneapolis are destroying private property harming totally innocent people.

THIS IS DOMESTIC TERRORISM.

And domestic terrorists must be dealt with by whatever means necessary.

This is not a war between a few cops and 300 million people, this is a war between a limited group of domestic terrorists operating under the guise of protesters in order to destroy, loot and steal, and LAW AND ORDER.

There must be law and order.

If the law cannot maintain law and order, we are all in trouble, all in danger. As much as I sympathize with the plight of Floyd and their family, rioting, looting and burning down thirty US cities was NOT justified. Now, instead of solving something here and making progress, they've instead created sympathy for the police, greater tension against Blacks, more racial division, and sent the wrong message that this kind of shit works.

And when you send that kind of message, you can only expect to get more.

What are the police supposed to do now? The next time a cop pulls a black person over, they are going to give every cop shit about every little thing, even showing their drivers licence or stepping out of the car. What's the cop to do? Who's going to want to be a cop now? What are you going to do when the police walk away and say FUCK IT and there is no one there at all to try to maintain law and order as mobs of thugs come to burn your house down, drag you out into the street, beat you, rape your wife, take your stuff? Huh? Who ya gonna call, Ghostbusters?

These rioters and looters should have been dealt with severely as domestic terrorism, arrested and prosecuted severely. By any and all means necessary. Tear gas, knock down gas, tranquilizer gas, armored vehicles, rubber bullets. Whatever it takes. Lock the fuckers away for 20 years charged with terrorism with millions to repay for the property they destroyed.

Whats really funny is that it took the death on one black guy whom they don't even know to start all of this: Having all their civil rights stomped on for months on end in lockdowns and shutdowns didn't do it.
You bring up some good points, but I have an issue with your assertion that police are somehow necessary; they aren't. They are a luxury that has gotten out of control.
Well, you went off the trail with that one. The police an unnecessary luxury? Wow. Won't even try to get my head around that one. The police are there as the front line of law enforcement.
And that's where you throw it all down the shitter. Right along with your Freedom...
THERE CAN BE NO FREEDOM WITHOUT LAW.

Actually, we are the front line, they are merely a reaction force that can't seem to keep it in their pants. If they would just sit down and mind their own, I doubt so many people would be so pissed off.
So you think the "front line" to law enforcement are the very same people breaking the laws? You think everyone knows 100% of the law much less will police themselves and turn themselves in and give themselves tickets? Score two for PLAIN STOOPID.
In the moment; they are. Until someone shows them differently. Do you not understand the foundational concept of what government actually is? It is the implied, or explicit use of force to coerce other people’s behavior.. It really is that basic. Everything else is window dressing...

If laughing soothes your anxiety; laugh your fucking ass off. The truth remains regardless.

Yeah, that reminds me...... they should probably quit with the revenue generation bullshit, too.

Do you not understand the foundational concept of what government actually is? It is the implied, or explicit use of force to coerce other people’s behavior.. It really is that basic.
Few understand this fundamental truth. Great post! You're the only person I've ever seen say that aside from myself. We certainly want as little of it as possible. The founders, of course, agreed.
