It's great irony. America's expect the crowd to be in discipline when their trained police couldn't even show the discipline to follow country laws about discrimination

As a Minnesota native (and a Minneapolitan for 8 years), this outrage was inevitable and long overdue. It was disgusting to see nothing happened after the murder of Philando Castile and we need a lot of changing, sweeping reforms to ensure the police serve us and not bully neighbors into some sick definition of submission.

What I don’t support is the looting, no matter who’s doing it. A lot of non-corporate places are being damaged, torched or looted and they’re owned by people in the community or people of color. In a city such as Minneapolis, these places (such as the Karem Mall) are hubs for people and immigrants to connect and places to get essentials on the bus line or without driving. Destroy those places and the most vulnerable are left without.

And to think that months ago, in other countries there were also riots, people demanding basic human rights, liberation, etc. It seems like this is the start of a decade of revolution.

Also please be careful. Department of Justice is waving habeas corpus and Trump has enacted the War Powers so if arrested an individual can be detained indefinitely till the end of pandemic with no rights.

I feel that higher authorities should give some assurance that they will take some action against the culprits and calm down the public first by gaining trust and assuring them security and making serious laws against such stuffs its sad 🙏 peace
