"George Floyd deserved better and his family deserves justice. His life mattered, I'm grateful for the swift action in Minneapolis to fire the officers involved--they must be held responsible for their egregious actions," said Joe Biden.

Why should Donald say anything to offend his base this close to an election?

Simply not true, just another lie.

Are Tweets really saying anything?

#3 | Posted by Zed at 2020-05-28 12:17 PM | Reply

Donald Trump Tweets because he's lazy and because he wants attention on himself.

There's no a priori reason to think the man gives a ---- about the late Mr. Floyd.

" Donald Trump has yet to say a single word "

"I have asked for this investigation to be expedited and greatly appreciate all of the work done by local law enforcement," he continued. "My heart goes out to George's family and friends. Justice will be served!"

No thanks.

I'm the first one to give Trump credit for showing a modicum of humanity.
Although I'm going to guess he was goaded into it and probably didn't word it himself.
And he still managed to praise the police, as though they've been shoved unwillingly into this quagmire and are not the main cause of it.

I don't know what was said here during that time, but my experiences from other blogs I've had would point out that something

like that might cause quite a furor.

I don't think the same thing about the LEO part of this statement, but then I don't hate the man.

I believe that it was a statement of support for the entire force which would include, of course, the many others who put their life on the line everyday. Good

men and women who go to work who would never commit such an egregious crime.

I would normally use the word "alleged" but that word doesn't seem to fit in reality here, does it ?

You obviously aren't paying attention.
Like the fact that you believe that this is an isolated and unprecedented incident. Or that the entire police culture of Minneapolis and the US in general doesn't promote and encourage this sort of behaviour.

And yet never seem to see or report the actions of those who do.
Do you believe the other 3 officers on the scene were supporting the murderer or the crowd?

Exactly, you see one cop committing a horrible crime, 3 other cops standing there doing nothing, and that brings you to the conclusion that all the other cops on the force are honest and upstanding?
What do you think would have happened if this wasn't videoed and publicized? What actions do you think other cops, who witnessed it and heard about it would have taken?

They said Obama wasn't a real man. They called everything Obamaville. They asked for his school records. They accused him of the being stupid and lazy and cowardly.

I'll have to check if Gracie could read back then.

He "tweeted" that lame horse manure, you idiots.

Just like the bottomless pit lies, hate, and fake concern he's been tweeting since before a gaggle of brainless troglodytes managed to get him elected president.

No comparison to bringing it up publicly in front cameras.

One person says bad things on the retort and others dont stop them and Rcade gives them a vacation. Yup, all the posters here are guilty.

There are plenty of examples of vacations, exiles, and banishment here, so the rule is those still standing nearby must be as bad.

I decided to riot and start up my firepit and make s'mores.

Angrydad --

So, the thread title is a lie. Trump wasn't silent at all. He in fact condemned this killing in a clear and timely manner.

Why use quotes on "tweeted"? To downplay the power of his statement? He reaches 180 million people through social media. We all know the power of his social media is real.

You sound really angry, Angrydad. Too angry, really. I believe you actually are enjoying spewing hateful bile on the internet.

Maybe take some time away from the screen? *For your children's sake*

Fondly,

'Notch
