Dumb Donald's throwing yet another temper tantrum and threatening to shut down all of social media since Twitter had the audacity to fact-check and disprove his latest lies.

Okay, seriously, how is it that this moron hasn't caught onto the fact that Zuckerberg and co just love him? If anything, he should be posting on Facebook instead of Twitter: not only can he rant and ramble on for longer than 280 characters, but Facebook will surely defend him over everything he posts - they've already been cracking down on people for posting/sharing too much content that's negative or critical of him or the GOP in general anyway . . . some of our fellow MCers have had to deal with temporary loss of certain features like commenting and reacting for doing such (no, I'm not one of them).

I hope all of social media doesn’t shut down.

Well, everyone was wondering what June would bring for 2020. Turns out it's mass riots, though a bit early.
I totally agree the way the police treated George Floyd was completely outrageous. Never should’ve happened that way. They should have the book thrown at them.
However, justice will not be done by looting, rioting, and burning your city down.
This is the same thing that happened in LA in 1992 with Rodney King. The behavior of the police there was inexcusable too. But that does not entitle you to help yourself to a TV set and burn down your neighborhood.
Is that justice?

Don’t care if this the wrong place for this but it needs to be shared

Take a stand
Take a stand against what exactly?

Floyd was not arrested because he was black, he was arrested for passing counterfeit money. He was not pinned to the ground because he was black, he was pinned to the ground because he refused to get into the cop car after several attempts. He did not die from the hold the cop had him in, he died from heart failure due to a pre-existing condition and having intoxicants in his system.

Did the cop use a hold om him that he shouldn't have? Yep. Did the hold combine with Floyd's pre-existing condition and lead to his death? Yep. Should he be held accountable for his actions? Yep, and he is. Nothing shows this was racially motivated. The "racist system" has charged the cop with 3rd degree murder and fired all involved. What are you taking a stand against? The system punishing the cop for a lethal lapse in judgment?

Someone explain the logic in having riots in response to this situation.
