I watched all of the videos of the police officer killing this Black man. The videos were from his body cam and other peoples cell phones. I am not on the jury but it is obvious that the man was not putting up a fight and was begging for the police man to take his knee off his neck. I believe that the officer should not only be fired along with those officers that watched without doing anything to stop it but they should have been put behind bars right away awaiting trial.
On the other hand I am also against the rioting and looting. There is an old saying "two wrongs do not make a right". I also watched the videos of people destroying private property and looting everything they could get their hands on. They even took carts full of things out of the stores.
What the officers did was murder of an innocent man and what the rioters and looters did was also criminal. Beside the officers being put behind bars, so should those rioters and looters be put behind bars.
Can you imagine if vegans would riot and loot because we disagree with people eating the flesh of animals? Of course not. We might demonstrate, write articles, give lectures, and other non-violent things but we would not riot and loot.
