I fully expect riots tonight, tomorrow, Friday and Saturday. (apparently so do most Louisville downtown merchants) I bet that most metro police departments are prying for rain over the weekend. If I were a business owner in a city of any size at all…and one where there is a sizeable number of black people, I’d be boarding up my windows as well….’cause one can expect that there will be riots.
Innocent or guilty, Breonna Taylor and Kenneth Walker had the right to live in peace. The No Knock raid was poorly executed (and should not have been a No-Knock raid anyway). The officers, even IF they felt justified in shooting, failed to identify their targets and essentially just sprayed bullets around.
While I cannot see any racism here, I can see that they officers and the system failed to act responsibly. Were in a non-police gun owning private citizen, they’d surely be charged for such reckless behavior. As should be the cops in this incident.
Having said that, rioting isn’t gonna change things, nor will it help. But that is what we have come to expect of inner city black people today….I mean, it has happened about every 4 years (sometimes more often) for most of my lifetime.
Expect more riots in the upcoming days. Try to stay out of inner cities. If you see a crowd of people, go another way. or turn around quickly. Try to be home soon after dark if you live in an urban area. Expect protests that then turn into riots, looting and burning.
It is the “new Normal”
After all, it is an election year…and the Dems need the black vote so they keep ’em riled up so they won’t vote for Trump, despite the Dems record of broken promises.
