Um. Yes. A entire system that tries to push this shit under the rug has been doing that for decades.
They did attack the cops. Yer in mpls and arnt aware of this? You do realize that the people targeting at least one business have been identified as police officers acting as protesters to attempt to shift the publics view of this right? This is standard police action to disruptt protests to shift the focus from "hey cops are killing innocent people dont do that anymore" to "shoot the looters they all just want free TVs see! They dont care about anything but destroying their own community these people are monsters! We had to shoot them to save YOU".
Of course theres also some people acting like assholes and just trashing shit for shits and giggles. I'm not arguing that, but I can tell you first hand what I saw last night here in Richmond is not what I'm reading about in the news this afternoon.
I don't watch the News much, unless some big severe storm hits the area. All my news is from "word of mouth" or my police scanner.
