    Amy Cooper called the police with her BS story about Christian Cooper threatening her life, knowing the police would most likely believe her story, and yet at the same time, 4 separate police officers each individually refused to believe George Floyd when he said he couldn’t breathe, even though a full grown man’s entire body weight was being forced upon the back of his neck. It’s haunting, simply haunting. I don’t often comment, but thank you Trevor for sharing your thoughts. Sometimes you just have to laugh, because the only other alternative is to cry. Keeping informed this day in age should bring me to tears every single day, and yet somehow Trevor you still make me laugh as you deliver it (not in this video, but you know what I mean)

    I’ll be honest, I get most of it, I still don’t get the Target store.
    When ever I’m disciplining a child, my own or the kids I tutor, I always remember…”you have to make it hurt”. I don’t mean physically. I mean you pay attention and take away whatever they love the most, until the realize you’re not playing.
    I Have one kid I tutor who always wants to go driving (he got his permit) I told him I would as long as he kept his grades up. When his grades started to slip because of his fooling around, I told him no more car. He fixed his grades fast. Like I said it has to mean something to them. It has to hurt.

    Who does it hurt to loot a Target store?
    The owners of the store?
    No, they can write it off.
    People watching on TV?
    No it’s not happening to them.
    The cops?
    No, they don’t really care that much about a store.

    Who does it hurt?
    The poor person who was working there to just make ends meet, but now probably won’t be able to go back. They are unemployed in a time where there is little employment available.
    It hurts that community who may have shopped there, but it doesn’t hurt the financially wealthy or the cops, or anyone really in charge or responsible.

    It just seemed like the community who were looting…were hurting themselves.

    We watch those officers slowly snuff out his life, one second at a time!! Without any empathy.

    Thank you, Trevor. I would like to urge anyone inclined to wear a black armband in support of Floyd’s family and black lives–and in solemn protest against the old world order that dictated racism. For months the relentless deaths of CoronaVirus victims have been heartbreaking, but this utterly devastating, horrifying, heartless, cruel, callous, inhumane taking of Mr. George Floyd’s life by a so-called peace officer and his accomplice, the latter of whom stood by doing nothing, meets with a second, painful shock as we now hear that the perpetrator has only been charged with 3rd manslaughter and the accomplice not yet arrested. Say what?!! omg! wtf? I need to apologize. Please forgive my naivete. In the past, I’ve sometimes wondered, “Why do some African American teens and youth seem so disrespectful and hostile towards whites and against accepted social values?” “Why aren’t their mothers, fathers and families teaching them to respect the law so they don’t get in trouble and ruin their young lives?” I, now, realize that the better question should have been, “Why are white mothers and white fathers still teaching hatred towards blacks and other minorities and ethnicities?” Those white officers who killed Mr. Floyd were taught racist hatred by their parents and the culture they lived in, which empowered them to break the law and destroy a life. That schitt is generations old. We need to take out the root of hatred from this dying garden where loving each other regardless of race, color, ethnicity, nationality should be the guiding principal of our lives. I didn’t think this period in history could get be anymore tragic.

    When a late night host is more respected than the president. At least in my opinion

    It’s so sad. The people at the top only care about the Corporates and Wars to other countries. We need leaders for the people however, both candidates are irresponsible.

    Conservative logic: Riots are not protests!!!! If you want to protest, do it peacefully. Colin takes a knee…….that is so disrespectful, that’s not a protest. It seems like conservatives don’t really understand anything.

    Empathy, my friend, seems to be in short supply these days. That needs to change. Thank you Trevor for saying what’s on your heart, and what needs to be said.
