  • When people cry “black lives matter,” maybe we should listen and not try to twist every news story involving a black man into an argument against it.

  • Hey- just a thought: This has nothing to do with the Black Lives Matter movement or the validity of the movement’s platform. You cannot let these men represent the African-American community anymore than they should let John Wayne Gacey or Ted Bundy represent white people.

If you want to be treated fairly and equal than be a model citizen of your community. We all have to get along but some just think they are above the law and can go and commit crimes because they think everyone is afraid of them. To all you thugs, get a life and get a Job.
