@#1 ... This guy's a graffiti god! ...

I view the person more as one who has defaced the People's House.

While some may view it as a supreme accomplishment, I view it differently for two reasons ---

1) how close he was able to get to the White House

2) intentional destruction of public property.

It wasn't the WH that got tagged. it was a building across the street and up a bit - most likely the Freedman's Bank Building.

@#3 ... It wasn't the WH that got tagged. ...

To be honest, I've not read up on this incident, for this thread I was just going upon what the TFDNihilist alias posted.

Oh well.... shame on me.

Apologies for my possibly incorrect post.

Then it's the perfect metaphor for our times as Trump has defaced the WH like no other.

He doesn't have the balls.
Notice there was lots of looting but not a lot of shooting.
Just another tough guy lie.
Any man knows the type, the wannabe tough guy.

It doesn't require a tough guy to shoot looters, it requires a crazy guy. I learned when I was a child that pouring gasoline on a fire doesn't put it out. Start shooting looters and you will have riots in virtually all major cities in the United States. That is just crazy talk. They tried it in the sixties and seventies, it did not work, the riots just got bigger. Try telling the police to stop murdering black men who committed not major crime. This guy was murdered over $20.00. Is that really the price for a life in this country today? And they better charge those other thugs who helped kill that man.

Welcome to Trumpys America.

Give a few more nights. They seem to be just getting warmed up. The crowds are getting larger. The White supremacists instigators are getting more and more organized everyday. If the governments don't get it together and control the crowds then anarchy will rule the night. Thanks to social media.

"The White supremacists instigators are getting more and more organized everyday"

Yes, and their involvement in the worst of this fascinates. Is the goal just to burn out a few minority owned businesses, or something larger?

I believe it's called a "Boogaloo".

It's on Fakebook.

The goal is anarchy. After which the whites will rule again? Not sure of the details.

Then we have this-

8:41 a.m.: White House protesters would have been met with "most vicious dogs," "most ominous weapons," president tweets

This country is an absolute tinder box right now. We're just one National Guard bullet away from burning the whole damn thing down.

How Nixon visited a Antiwar protest.

If only Trump was as brave as Nixon. Or as smart, or as honest.

Then please don't read realDonaldTrump latest tweets from an hour ago promising "...the Federal Government will step in and do what has to be done, and that includes using the unlimited power of our Military..." to control the rioting.

Plenty of Brownshirts in MAGA hats with AR-15s hope you're right.

I wonder if Boaz feels safe.

Fayetteville NC Mayor Mitch Colvin: I'll will be joining the protesters today, I understand the frustrations but it is important to keep things peaceful and while protesting please observe social distancing and wear masks.

Well I guess I spoke too soon, Fayetteville is now on fire.

Not sure what happened it was peaceful for 6+ hours still trying to find out what sparked the switch.

My son was at the Raleigh protest and got tear gassed, from what he heard one of the protesters threw a rock and the police launched tear gas. He left but he is hearing from others there that now they are using rubber bullets because protesters were blocking the highway.

Update on Fayetteville only one building was on fire, the market house, which has been a contentious building for a while because slave auctions were held there. The fire was contained without major damage and police continue their light touch approach.

Still not hearing anything from Durham which I assume means that it has remained peaceful there so only Raleigh got out of hand.

Graffiti is a peaceful means of protest. We can clean up graffiti. We can't bring back the lives the police and the Trump administration are snuffing out.
