    The only racial minority folks murdered in Frostburg in many decades, if not forever, were killed by people of their own race and gender and who were not police officers. Perhaps a different theme would have been in order for the protest.

        You got quite an extensive vocabulary there Mark old boy! At least the people protesting in Frostburg were civil/kind/bright enough not to go on a destructive rampage. It’s a little hard to take serious someone’s plea for a grievance about an injustice against them when they are running down the street with stolen property, from an injustice they just did to someone else. Don’t give me the line about how passionate they are about their cause, unless you would be ok with a passionate pro-lifer burning an abortion clinic. You know the place where black, white and brown babies are killed daily. Or is it only certain lives are important?

          >To ‘Dave’ Ever see me condone any looting? NO. But go ahead & ignore and deflect from the 99% that obey the laws while demonstrating. You bigots never give up on casting your hate and ignorance around. But keep showing the world what inhumane trash you are, that way decent folks can aviod & ignore you while you wallow in your hate & bigotry.

            Mark, sorry if I left you under the impression that I thought that you were condoning lawlessness, I was only condemning those that were nor am I not condoning police misconduct. I am gland we are in agreement with everyone obeying the law. We also have a right to protest, my problem is with the people, unlike you who condone lawlessness because of an injustice. I am sadden that you feel that I am a bigot and hateful. I’m not sure what I said that gave you that impression. I am for living in a country that is safe and peaceful. If you believe that there needs to be changes there are ways to achieve that, and as we both agree it must be done within the law. There is much truth to the saying that two wrongs don’t make a right. I am a Christian and believe that God created people not races and I should see all people as He sees them, so I think that it is not accurate to view any disagreement we have as bigoted or hateful for I believe that Jesus died for the sins of all men irregardless of what color skin they happen to have. I hope you better understand me now. I’m against injustice I think that there are ways within our system to address it, and plundering is not one of them.

            > How many doctors and clinic workers have been murdered and clinics bombed by YOUR so-called ‘pro-life” buddies Dave?? And WHY do you argue that police violence and injustice should be ignored because while the police are too busy bashing in the heads & gassing INNOCENT people (that are exercising their RIGHT to demonstrate) a few opportunists criminals take advantage? You argue INJUSTICE is OK as long as a criminal exists because you refuse to see the racism and don’t want to see it end. Period. Quit defending the hate and racism. WE SEE YOU.

    Bob is correct. The truth might hurt but that’s too bad.

    “Their calling has never been for the fainthearted. They often revealed the nation’s disturbing bigotry and exploitation — stains on our character sometimes difficult for the American majority to examine. We can only see the reality of America’s need by seeing it through the eyes of the threatened, oppressed, and disenfranchised.
    That is exactly where we now stand. Many doubt the justice of our country, and with good reason. Black people see the repeated violation of their rights without an urgent and adequate response from American institutions.”- Black Lives Matter spokesman.

    Interesting how many people are not bothered by racism and Police brutality. Just don’t forget:

    “First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

    – Martin Niemoeller

      > Pete- They not only don’t care, they think any non-white deserves whatever brutality they receive as they don’t see non whites as fellow humans. Their ignorance makes them fearful and their fear makes them ignorant. A vicious cycle they pass on to their ignorant children.

      > I’ll tell you some actual facts:
      Racism in Amerika is well and alive.
      Police brutality against minorities is well and alive.
      The Police Chief of Louisville, KY was fired on Monday because of excessive Police violence and ordering his Officers to turn off their Bodycams.
      Also on Monday, several Police Officers with the Atlanta PD have been fired for excessive violence.
      Investigation are under way against Police Officers with the NYPD for excessive violence and civil rights violations.
      The Minneapolis School system has canceled all contracts with the Minneapolis PD because of racism and violence.

      You ok with all that?
