Change needs to happen whatever that change means, it is time for it to happen. I think that the overwhelming majority of people across the country would agree with that. But rioting and violence is not the answer. It won't help win the majority over. When the protesting turns too rioting and violence then the people will respond. Only bad things will happen. Unfortunately, I don't think that last night was the conclusion. It will get worse from both sides.
I never ever would have thought Trump had a chance in May. But BLM, Democratic Mayors and Governors, Hidin Biden might just get it done. Totally and completely unheard of.
Complete opportunity to dismantle the failed war on drugs, rid ourselves of prison economics and mandatory minimums and it's all been flushed down the toilet. Now we're burning cities and businesses down over knife wielding felons committing almost-suicide by cop. It's a wasted chance.
