People are legit scared. One of my close friends fled Denver because she is scared.
Message permalink: 716690316714967141
I’ve thought a lot about that. The reality is that people who sit by, vote for the same corrupt politicians, and do nothing when they see people being abused by cops, don’t use the influence they have (like business owners) to influence change in their city, have been complicit in allowing, and frequently encouraging the police state, and, while I don’t condone any violence against innocents at all, I don’t really care that they might lose money/be inconvenienced/etc

Out of the let's say 1,000,000 people that live in Minneapolis maybe 3,000 are causing all this shit. Burning down half of the city.
Message permalink: 716691150081228910
I mean, people have been almost constantly peacefully protesting, and it’s been frankly, completely ignored. So I genuinely don’t see what other option these people have.
Message permalink: 716691235435315201
And in all reality out of the 3000, it's probably 200 or 300 people actually looting and burning shit down.

> I'm going to be honest. This shit needs to stop. @Anonymoose yeah. This isn't how we would have done it. Which is why I believe we should be more focused on legitimizing our cause. I'm looking at the situation and analyzing it, seeing what works and what doesnt. Their organization is something to admire but their control is terrible. They have a non profit up with email list and a chapter or sub chapter in most major cities. They waited till the numbers were high enough and the prime moment to strike. However in the end they will defeat themselves by making more enemies than friends.
