The violence we see sweep our nation is truly troubling. We see chaos and violence of every sort as as our cities areablaze. This exploded when police officers arrested a black man George Floyd
for bouncing a check.They had him restrained his hands were cuffed behind his back ,and the policeman had the suspect on the ground with his knee on his neck. The suspect was crying “I can’t breathe”… yet the arresting officer persisted… and the black man died as a result. This immediately resulted in peaceful demonstrations turning violent nationwide. There has been violent attacks on police, fire bombing of businesses and looting, with ongoing shootings in cities like Chicago where the death toll is increasing daily.
This violence is being led primarily by two organizations “Black Lives Matter and Antifa”. The BLM’S excuses for their response is“righteous indignation”…This by no meansjustified the chaos,and violence exploding in commercial districts, and affecting black businesses is an obvious contradiction to their stated
