That's because:

1) Police officers tend to view protests against them as inherently threatening, and
2) Police officers are trained to respond to perceived threats with disproportionate violence.

Only an uneducated dweeb would think that Trump isn't right at least in regards to the COVID testing.   I disagree with everything else he says but he's correct on that one. And the hard data from independent sources confirm it. .  If you think otherwise it's because you blindly hate anything the man says and your unable to think independently.



Pardon me if I missed something here, but it sure sounds like you're saying Trump is at least partially correct that if you stop testing for COVID, then the amount of diagnoses will go down.   I'm going to proceed ahead assuming that this is accurate to your beliefs.

AhemOF COURSE IT'S TRUE.   But it's completely missing the point.   The point is to stop the virus, not to fudge the numbers, and if you stop testing people then that is impossible.

Still zero arrests for the Lafayette Park Police Riot. Dozens of Federal cops attacked unarmed, peaceful protesters and bystanders including journalists, EMTs, and clergy. They used batons and shields as weapons and pepperballs and tear gas to clear out people who were doing nothing wrong. They lied about it after the fact, too. Lying about the conduct of the protesters and lying about the weapons they used despite it being all caught on video by individuals as well as multiple journalists and eyewitness including clergy.

All so Trump could stand in front of a church he doesn't attend, whose clergy he ordered violently removed from the grounds, and stand there like an idiot holding up someone else's bible that he can't quote a single passage from.

It's pretty amazing how during a protest against police brutality the only response the police have is to repeatedly, over and over and over prove the protesters right.

On the chance you're not trolling...

Hospitals being overwhelmed in several states is proof that the rise in coronavirus cases is real, and not the result of increased testing.

Testing is imperative to tracking and containing the spread. Trump's efforts to reduce testing are helping to spread coronavirus. It's one of the best things he can possibly do to undermine containment efforts.

In the case of police responses to anti-police-brutality protests, the directives (and the entire mentality that engenders them) are the problem that needs to be fixed, not just the individual bad officers.

Herr Morgenstern: Aaron469: Like I've said before, as long as it stays in the cities, ghettos and slums I'm all for the rioting and looting. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching it on TV. I feel bad that the thugs (or as they are known on the news cast "innocent protesters") shot and killed that little girl at the burned out Wendy's in Atlanta. But ya know, muh sosal jushtush is all that matters. But as long as they continue killing each other it's a good thing. [Fark user image image 422x750]

I think that protests should include protesters who play/have played lacrosse and who have their sticks with them. The protests should also include protests carrying backpacks that are full of marbles. When the police decide it is time to reenacted the 1968 Democratic National Convention the lacrosse players and return the tear gas canisters to their rightful owners and the people with backpacks and "pull a Flounder" and deploy the marbles between the protesters and the police.
