Is the US now in a state of civil war - the governor of Minnesota has alleged that " 80% of those arrested in the current protests are from out of state"
It's hard to imagine that so many spontaneously crossed state lines without some sort of organisation ?
And Mr Trump isn;t helping much QUOTE CnP MSN News
" The president said: "The front line was replaced with fresh agents, like magic. Big crowd, professionally organized, but nobody came close to breaching the fence. If they had they would have been greeted with the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons, I have ever seen. That's when people would have been really badly hurt, at least. Many Secret Service agents just waiting for action. 'We put the young ones on the front line, sir, they love it, and ... good practice."
His posts also appeared to try to undermine protesters calling for justice in the wake of killings of black men by police by saying that the US Secret Service (which he appraised as "not only totally professional, but very cool") had "let the 'protesters' scream rant as much as they wanted" but "whenever someone got too frisky or out of line, they would quickly come down on them, hard — didn’t know what hit them."
Not the best time to gloat about his own physical security when so many in the nation don't even have economic, housing, health or job security ?
So ... is the US President and Government now at war with the American people or not ?
If the state governments did their jobs, the riots wouldn't be out of control. Why are there riots in the first place and why aren't they being controlled in what ever manner is necessary? If punishments fit the crimes there wouldn't be so much incarceration and other issues.
A video showing cops murdering a black man isn't an excuse. The black communities kill more of each other every year on their own. Why do certain political parties keep racism and the idea of segregation alive? The cops involved will hopefully get the death penalty.
The "rioters" can't be allowed a free pass every time they want to "jungle out" in stupidity and illegalities. It costs much more including more lives. There's no justice of any type with such actions. Out of state or not, I doubt the groups are all from else where unless organized by another "institution". That would mean another group needs to be "checked" and put in it's place.
Trump should be touting the security of the White House. It could be the one place where things will be kept under control. That same force and security could be used at the state levels to protect WHOLE communities and districts but it has not. Of course it won't be secret service but the states have the resources and power at their disposal.
