These looters and rioters have taken away the meaning of meaningful protest and are hurting people and businesses. I am all in favor of bringing the military in and I am reluctant to say this but we have no choice lives are at steak the liberal mayors of these cities should of taken action at the onset but they chose to take a passive approach. Our govenor Mr. Cuomo refuses to send in the National Guard to NYC. Something needs to be done
    I quite agree the thugs hold the upper hand.
    Perhaps you should consider who gave it to them. And to compound that, Trump has the audacity to disperse a genuine protest by tear gas and plastic bullets to enable a photo shoot outside of a church, flourishing a bible that not only did he not open but wouldn't know what was written in it anyway, since he has abused it from the first page to the last.
    What needs to be done won't be done until November and by then the chances of recovery are even futher down the road.

The police are moving in and arresting them as they catch them. I think things are a lot better in NYC as opposed to Minneapolis.
    What may be within reason now would not have been necessary at all if endemic racism had been recognised for what it was at the abolition of slavery and not over 100 years and more later.

    There is no answer now. The propaganda eminating from both sides has an air of history about it.. It's enshrined in today's teaching and isn't even considered as a vice, but to many as a virtue.

    You make a good point, however there is an old saying "No use crying over spilled milk" We need to move forward and focus on the future and not on the past since we cannot change the past but can shape the future.

    To shape the future there has to be a starting point.
    There isn't one. The US is too polarised.
    Don't think for even a minute that one single Trump supporter has changed stance on his leadership which they see as the catalyst in making America great again.
    Making America great again isn't just for the benefit of Americans. They have forgotten that. The rest of the world hasn't. Even if you discount Russia, China, Iran and N.Korea as bad players, the damage done to other countries and those who once were allies is incalculable. Don't think that once Trump has gone, everything will be hunky-dorey again. It won't.
    Theachery has it's price and loss of trust in the US will be difficult to reverse.
