    I don’t think they’re getting tired of it. Seems like they getting ready for more killing since police is getting defunded.

    America is a society of violence. More and more children die every day, but we can’t have new gun regulations

      millions have guns and never have to use them, good to have if you need one though. Majority of Americans know how to police themselves, everyone should give that a try and stop reaching for a weapon to solve arguments, imaginary or real.

      BLM is definitely NOT a joke. It is a real internal and transnational terrorist organization openly embraced by many around the world. Because they use the words…black lives matter…which resonates well with many. BLM the organisation has agendas nothing to do with the well being of black lives.

    • BTIsaac Reply

      Oh right. Dead of night, the shooters wearing all black, but the parents could clearly make out their skin color while they were being shot at. Makes perfect sense. And i don’t trust a word coming out of the mouths of parents who use the death of their own daughter to delegitimize Black Lives Matter.

    • Froggy Reply

      @BTIsaac Hey ..I wasn’t there and I didnt see it (except what was on the news) I only know what the parents and wittnesses said. I dont know if what they said is true any more than I know what you’re saying is true. And I’m not going to debate something when I dont know the facts. Stay safe!

      @BTIsaac well your common sence sounds a little paranoid to me. Accusing the parents of a child who just got murdered of a political reason for lying about who killed thier child? I dont see that. But you’re certainly entitled to your opinion, as I am mine.

      @Ace Tech But what does this have to do with BLM??? How does it fit in with police brutality?

    • Natural Spring Solace Reply

      Margaret Nicol How does Trayvon martin, the incident that started blm correlate with police brutality? People are sick of you hypocrites excusing every black persons death that doesn’t fit your agenda.

    • Margaret Nicol Reply

      @Natural Spring Solace Excusing a death? Don’t be obscene.

    • Natural Spring Solace Reply

      Margaret Nicol It’s true though. If the death is at the hands of somebody not white, NOBODY seems to care. They always excuse it with “but blm is about police brutality and racism!” And like I said, that’s a lie because Trayvon martins case started blm and they DO focus on non police brutality cases when a white man perpetrates it. You’re a wicked person.

    • Margaret Nicol Reply

      @Natural Spring Solace They focus? Them? The others? The ones not like you? NO brutal death is excusable. NO-ONE has the right to use a gun on an unarmed child or adult. The sickening thing about the police brutality it not only that they do it but that they get away with it? Don’t you understand that? Someone kills someone they get caught, go to court, get sentenced and sent to prison. When the police do it they have a few weeks vacation on full pay and are either given a desk job, sent to a different station or it’s simply ignored. THAT’S THE DIFFERENCE. That why people are asking for justice.

    • Love Junkie Reply

      Yes but a lot of the same people who complain about living in these areas are the same people who don’t report names to the police or refuse to “rat” on ppl in their neighborhood. Sometimes people need to take responsibility for their own neighborhoods and do what they can to fix it. Just like those black business owners in Chicago who came together to put a $25,000 reward for the shootings in their area. They even said people need to take responsibility for their own neighborhoods.. like come on.

  29. Daniel Storm Reply

    Hope the killer is caught and pays for this horrible crime. But why are people mentioning BLM as though this crime demonstrates some double standard. As though protesting against deadly force applied to black people in recent years for petty crimes, looking dangerous, sleeping in cars, watching TV is missing some other dimension. What is wrong with acknowledging that this happens and needs to stop. Why do you have to point to unrelated crimes as though one cancels or diminishes the other? Some even keeping score as though in an imaginary racial war. Pretty low on logic.

    • ShawdowsAndDust Reply

      Sure because we all know that the ones doing these shootings are the ones going to the gun store being ran through background checks. Last time I checked drugs were illegal yet there have never been more drugs on the streets than there are today. We should ban crime too while we’re at it right?

    • Pak De Reply

      @ShawdowsAndDust so your solution is more guns and you think that will make you safe?

    • Pak De Reply

      No, you need to buy back all guns and melt them down. Give two thousand dollars for a gun no questions asked and get rid of all the guns and make it automatically a life sentence for committing a crime with a gun. Reform and all that other crap won’t work. It’s got to be zero tolerance or nothing. In Indonesia a retired high ranking general was arrested for owning a gun without permission. That’s how serious they are about guns. Ten years I lived in Indonesia and not one kid in a country of 270 million people ever got shot.

    • Berserkir Claws Reply

      @Pak De It’s near impossible to make understand people in America that guns are dangerous and should only available to trained professionals like soldiers and police officers (and they do need some TRAINING).
      It’s the only way to stop gun violence once for all.
      And you definitely right about extremely strong sentences for any gun crime.

After all these defund the police and 11 charges against Garret Rolfe. However I do think police reform is necessary, some cases are ridiculous indeed. They shoot too fast, on all races including on white people. You can find plenty of those videos on YouTube. There’s some problem with their training.

    In Europe the police shoot between 1 and 5 people a year. In the USA they shoot far in excess of 1000. How can you think this is normal or a free society? There is a huge gap between how Americans see their nation and how the rest of the developed world sees their nation. Americans see the USA as ‘the land of the free,’ the rest of us see a brutal police state driven by out of control gun violence. It’s never going to change.
