    Canadians rioted and burned shit when the avalanche won the cup. 



    ...??? 

    Refresh my memory here. I know folks in Vancouver rioted when Boston won the Cup, but did we riot when Colorado won as well? 
    Yes!  When the Avalanche won Quebec went buck wild.  I think it was only a year after they left?
    Neat!  But I mean.. that's Quebec.  Not entirely Canadian.

    (Disclaimer: the previous comment was made in jest. The writer is aware that Quebec is an integral part of Canada and is himself spawned from that of Quebec natives, most of whom he likes.)

    I have never heard of cops firing their weapons carelessly in situations of protest.  That would be news to me and if true those officers that shoot blindly would/should be held accountable but I don't think it can really be proven.

    Completely different here of course.  The author is talking about the recent riots/protests and you bring up something that happened 50 years ago where the cops actually drew down and shot people.  He is describing police officers shooting at nothing.

    Completely different.

    Thanks

    That “nothing” you refer to were empty streets? “Nothing.” I’m not sure that streets filled with protesters should be considered “nothing.” And isn’t one of the cardinal rules of “responsible” gun handling is to know what is downrange from where you’re shooting and the potential consequences? Maybe you remember the young, female Red Sox fan shot in the face with a bean bag? Recent enough for you?

    Yea, nothing.

    True but I think they basically become deputized as law enforcement officers through the avenue of being called into service. But okay, strike it from my reference.

    Yea, nothing. 
    There you go again adding things that have NOTHING to do with the article.  Do you even read any of this or you fire right from the hip?

    To bring you up to speed again the article claimed that "Many of the fires and broken windows attributed to rioters are actually the result of police recklessly shooting off live ammunition with no accountability."

    This is something I never heard or read about before and what the crux of my argument is.  I have no idea where your tangents are coming from or have to do with my initial thoughts? So please fell free to comment with something relevant to my comment.

    Anyone else having a hard time like he is with what I said?

    What’s the difference between Black protests and Black riots?

    I have never heard of cops firing their weapons carelessly in situations of protest.  That would be news to me and if true those officers that shoot blindly would/should be held accountable but I don't think it can really be proven.

    Interesting take and view but hard to swallow all of it and his last statement paints you in a corner if you disagree.
    Never heard of Kent State or Jackson State, I guess? Chicago 1968?
    So it hasn't happened in 50 years is what you are telling me?
    Different than it’s never happened because you hadn’t heard of it, eh?
    Completely different here of course.  The author is talking about the recent riots/protests and you bring up something that happened 50 years ago where the cops actually drew down and shot people.  He is describing police officers shooting at nothing.

    Completely different.

    Thanks
    That “nothing” you refer to were empty streets? “Nothing.” I’m not sure that streets filled with protesters should be considered “nothing.” And isn’t one of the cardinal rules of “responsible” gun handling is to know what is downrange from where you’re shooting and the potential consequences? Maybe you remember the young, female Red Sox fan shot in the face with a bean bag? Recent enough for you?

    Yea, nothing.

    From the article, as you pointed out:

    From your post:

    The bolded part is what I was responding to originally. I gave you past examples. You then reference "shooting at nothing," while the author of the article is claiming that the "nothing" is actually protesters and places of businesses.

    Got it.  It's amazing though that you pulled instances from 50 years ago to prove a point when we are discussing an article that was talking about the last few years.

    What’s the difference between Black protests and Black riots?

    https://thegrio.com/2020/05/28/george-floyd-minneapolis-riots/

    I have never heard of cops firing their weapons carelessly in situations of protest.  That would be news to me and if true those officers that shoot blindly would/should be held accountable but I don't think it can really be proven.

    Interesting take and view but hard to swallow all of it and his last statement paints you in a corner if you disagree.
    Never heard of Kent State or Jackson State, I guess? Chicago 1968?
    So it hasn't happened in 50 years is what you are telling me?
    Different than it’s never happened because you hadn’t heard of it, eh?
    Completely different here of course.  The author is talking about the recent riots/protests and you bring up something that happened 50 years ago where the cops actually drew down and shot people.  He is describing police officers shooting at nothing.

    Completely different.

    Thanks
    That “nothing” you refer to were empty streets? “Nothing.” I’m not sure that streets filled with protesters should be considered “nothing.” And isn’t one of the cardinal rules of “responsible” gun handling is to know what is downrange from where you’re shooting and the potential consequences? Maybe you remember the young, female Red Sox fan shot in the face with a bean bag? Recent enough for you?

    Yea, nothing. 
    There you go again adding things that have NOTHING to do with the article.  Do you even read any of this or you fire right from the hip?

    To bring you up to speed again the article claimed that "Many of the fires and broken windows attributed to rioters are actually the result of police recklessly shooting off live ammunition with no accountability."

    This is something I never heard or read about before and what the crux of my argument is.  I have no idea where your tangents are coming from or have to do with my initial thoughts? So please fell free to comment with something relevant to my comment.

    Anyone else having a hard time like he is with what I said?

    From the article, as you pointed out:

    The bolded part is what I was responding to originally. I gave you past examples. You then reference "shooting at nothing," while the author of the article is claiming that the "nothing" is actually protesters and places of businesses.

    Relevent enough for you?
    Got it.  It's amazing though that you pulled instances from 50 years ago to prove a point when we are discussing an article that was talking about the last few years.
    I guess the young Red Sox fan wasn't recent enough for you. Got it.

    Rodney King's beating was 29 years ago. Nothing has changed. Nothing.
    OMG OMG again with events that have ZERO to do with what was said about fires being started from cops shooting their guns.

    Red sox bean bag. No fires started from cops shooting beanbag.

    Rodney King beating.  No shots fired.  No fires started from cops shooting because no cop shot anything during the incident.

    Just stop it, please.

    My bolded part was referencing the article in which he mentions a cops bullet fired recklessly starts a fire during RECENT events.

    He says "recklessly shooting off live ammunition".  If they were pointed at demonstrators there would be dead people everywhere.  This is all moot anyways because I have, again, never heard of cops' bullets starting fires.  That is what I am getting at.

    A reason for the police being called is what started it, the end result was due to terrible practice by the cops that responded. I refuse to watch the video because to me it is pretty disturbing to voluntarily witness someones life being taken, but I can read and have seen screen shots of what there is no denying as being unwarranted force. I remember seeing you post that this occurred close to home for you. Did you use this opportunity to go out and let your voice be heard, or was it a situation that felt too unsafe?

    Also add being a CNN reporter doing his job on live tv and get arrested even showing his press credentials. While around the corner the next block reporter Josh Campbell of CNN shows his credentials and nothing happens to him and his news crew. He happens to white and so it goes in America.
