Rally Turns Violent in Columbia

Recommended Posts

A rally against the killing over 1000 miles away from the city turned violent today in Columbia. 1 cop was seriously injured, 3 others are injured, 1 rioter who fired a shot was arrested, and the mayor has declared a curfew until Monday. WTH are they still at it? The killer yankee cop was arrested. Are they just looking for excuses to commit crimes?

Maybe this will give some cop second thought before murdering the next unarmed black man. Probably not though.

Giving them a pass for taking advantage of the situation?  Both sides of this thing are wrong and the message of the protest has been overshadowed if not completely lost by the crimes being committed.   I would hope that all of man thinks more than twice before taking the life of anyone, cops and civilians included.

Agreed. But I do understand the widespread rioting - it is like blowing up a balloon, eventually it will pop if you keep adding more air. By continuing to do nothing, we allowed it to keep getting bigger and never did anything to deflate the situation/balloon - until it exploded.

George Floyd and police brutality is the proximal cause, but it is also about racism and legal unfairness. The recent handling of the Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor cases is part of this violent reaction also.

How did anyone take advantage in Colombia? A cop with three buddies kneeling on the neck of a handcuffed man for over 8 minutes is much different than a moment of passion between civilians. Have you watched the video for the whole 8+ minutes? If you haven't, you should.

I'm starting to see reports that the killer copy and Floyd worded private security together. These may be just BS rumors, but if not, the plot is getting thick.

It is true. Chauvin worked outside security in his off-hours at a music venue - for 11 years. Floyd worked inside security (bouncer) for a couple of those years.

They had yo have some interaction. Maybe they had issues then?

FYI, Chauvin had a bad day Friday. Not just the charges, but his wife divorced him publically This is his wife:

th?id=OIF.il%2bc4By0cVtg0ApHX7p%2fvQ&pid

 Interesting that she is a both minority (Laotian) and an immigrant. I do not know if there was marital strife prior to the charges - if there was, maybe he was taking out his frustrations with minorities?

Most cops beat their wives and girlfriends.

If this is true - I agree that is a complete POS.

I would imagine that it was not intentional - his aim was bad and he missed the cop.

Looting is bad enough - hurting other people (or horses) is over the line. Tne pent-up frustration needed to get out, but it is time to get things back under control. No reason to compound the death by getting more people hurt or killed.

A 19 yr old out of towner was arrested Sunday for refusing to disperse. When the police searched his backpack, they found a pistol and 70 rounds of ammunition. For underage possession of a handgun as well as illegally carrying a concealed firearm, that young man is looking at a bit of jailtime.

Some ass hat hit a Dallas police horse with a brick. What a POS.

There are a lot of extremists piggy backing off these protests to create violence and chaos because they want anarchy and they don't care how they get it. They know it will further the divide and distract anyone from actually focusing on a positive change. There is a lot of evil afoot right now

Yep on both sides.

But there are also a lot of fine people - on both sides.
