I’m glad store owners fight back. It literally shouldn’t be seen as bad when a man defends himself.

The news covers the guy who killed the looter like he was a bad guy.

They arm themselves due to the “protests?” Why would you need to arm yourself for a protest? Do you mean the _riots?_

Why are you surprised that people will shoot when a crook decides to loot?

Owners have a right to protect their property too and they should. All the looting is distracting the real prize of the protest

2nd amendment is a blessing, bring em out bring em out, it's hard to speak when the barrels in your mouth.

Just wanted t o say three things
1) Good for everyone who is defending their businesses with their second amendment rights
2) Shame on the media channels that have been saying these riots are justified. Literal destruction of property and murder are never justified.
3) Justice for Floyd- may the officer get the charge that he absolutely deserves.

The WEAKEST attempt at making the cops and store owners look bad.

If you are protesting the death of Mr. Floyd, you already lost. The narrative has been drowned out by rioters and looters.

Trump told you. When the looting starts the shooting starts! Oh...You thought he just meant police and NG? 🤣🤣🤣 You better hope a cop gets to before I do if I catch you looting my business. I'll make it slow and painful!

I find it funny how the news says it’s bad when the looter tries to rob someone and then get killed in the process, and they think it’s bad, that it’s a crime that the owner shot the looter.. this world is insane

I hope person's who know of any of these looters (thieves) should do the right thing and turn them in. Its not about snitching its doing the right thing and teaching consequences of actions!

Opportunist using these peaceful and meaningful protest are just disrespecting the cause & Floyd's memory in my opinion!
