From peaceful events to riots

Black Lives Matter was founded in 2013 after the shooting death of Trayvon Martin to protest police killings of African Americans. It was a mainly peaceful demonstration that did not bring about a lot of actual changes in the last seven years.

Fast forward to today and look at the riots, abusing police and property destruction after George Floyd died in police custody just a month or so ago. Now when there is a case of white officers involved in a black suspect’s death the officers are immediately fired, before there is even an investigation.

City and state governments have given in completely to these rioters, setting a very bad precedent. What’s next? You might as well change our name to the Socialist States of America. You can’t reward this behavior, there has to be a better way to affect change.
