Among the list of those shot by white cops, which ones were not involved in the commission of a crime, resisting arresting, assaulting an officer? Any shooting that cost a live is tragic but are they murder and are they a criminal act by the police. Immediately the left cries foul and claims murder and then the facts begin to come out and the story is less clear. If you want to protest obsessive force, that's one thing but to claim as LaBron James did that blacks are being hunted is a dangerous and a flagrant lie.
Now we see protestors on the left show up at a hospital treating two cops who were victims of an attempted assassination, and yell things like, "I hope you die". They also tried to block the entrance to the emergency room. That's pretty bad.

That's very bad, not just pretty bad. There is no excuse for anyone to yell that to any victim of a violent crime, and certainly not to a peace officer.

Social order is breaking down. Part of the reason it's breaking down is grouping everyone as 'right" or "left," without even defining what that means. Very few of us want to see cops die or support violent crimes against them. Very few of us support cops who shoot innocent people in the back. If "left" means we like seeing the police being victims of violence, there are very few "left," and if "right" means we support shooting innocent people in the back, then there are very few right.

Most of us are just Americans.

1. I agree with you 100%.

2. But the Dems & the media want to make President Trump look bad, so this year there has been a concerted effort to convince the public that Mr. James's comments are accurate. No one gave more legitimacy to the lie than the Speaker of the House when she ostentatiously kneeled in the Capitol.

3. If, as is likely, Mr. Biden and Ms. Harris win in 49 more days, the federal government will no doubt ratify Mr. James's accusation with various forms of legislation.

4. That is just how it is in 2020 America, and it will only get more extremist in the coming decades.

Says a lot about who their heroes are. Kamala is very proud of a guy who repeatedly beat and sexually assaulted women.
Multiple funerals, murals and endless eulogizing for a man who pistol whipped a pregnant woman and held a gun to her belly as his posse robbed her in her home.
No, they did not deserve to die. No, they weren't without blame for their demise.

Resisting arrest for a $20 shoplift (accused, not proven) or selling single cigarettes is not a capital crime.

Donald Trump’s first wife accused him of rape and battery.

You’re being hysterical.
