Nothing, apart from my armchair SJW thing, as I freely admit.

But I'm not criticizing the very existence of BLM movement.

BLM should not be the only show in town - which is what appears to be the case at the moment.

Sorry you can't read it, just google. The short version is they was probably justified.

Shame you think stating the truth is "making false claims", tells us more about you than your opinion.

Equally, we seem to be seeing a heck of a lot of things saying how awful the "left" are...... but let's think about when the "right" have been in power, eh? Shall we ask my wife's family how it was to be under constant threat of arrest and to know people who had been tortured for criticising the regime?..... not communist, but fascist, not left, but right, very conservative, very pro religion and the family.... sounds familiar, eh? All smelling of roses then, wasn't it? The point is, anyone wanting change in the USA is automatically labelled "leftist" or even "marxist" or even, heaven forfend "liberal" (which can only be seen as bad through the goggles of the "right") All asking for the moon and the stars (as well as threatening the constitution, mom and dad and apple pie).

I took a look at your link, it seemed undecided.
Amman said "not allow you to aim a gun unless there was some threat", I saw no threat, maybe there was, that has not been shown yet, I also understand that some will think the presence of the great unwashed posses a threat in itself.
Flint said "Its illegal in Missouri to display a gun in an angry or threatening manner" I can see that there will be people on both sides of this too.

It's on YouTube... but I disagree that it says they were probably justified... it says it is still under unvestigation and that no threats had been heard that justify a claim of intimidation. Given the line between being unarmed and aiming a weapon.... where do you think this "obviously terrified" couple stand?

You suggested it was the owners right to threaten with weapons, amongst other things. I proved that incorrect.

You saw no threat? That's great, which person were you in the video?

It's going to take a really shitty DA to attempt to prosecute those two lawyers. But it happens.

lol, you got legal advice from YT?

Mmmm you proved nothing incorrect . Seems you don't know what a false claim is. Perhaps don't continue to consult YT videos for legal advice?

How about we talk more about the piece of shit cops that killed Floyd rather than some trespassing protesters and silly looking people brandishing weapons?

What YouTube video?....I published nothing from YouTube, I just found your KMOV video there ..... are you suggesting (dons tinfoil hat) it was 'doctored'??
You claimed that the report on KMOV suggests "they was probably justified.", when it doesn't.

What I posted was a link to a site that offers advice on "Legal Defense for Self Defense" (sic) ... not a site likely to be on my side of the argument!! This was specifically about the law in Missouri and I even quoted the relevant paragraph, but then.... what was your phase? Oh, yes - "you're not interested in anything contrary to your opinion"

Desperate to win, are you?

There's a seperate thread for that.... unfortunately this thread is all about attempts to suggest BLM is sinister and, by so doing, suggest that the people protesting are all mistaken when they think there's something wrong with the way things are.....

The silly looking people brandishing guns are white lawyers who live in a gated community, annoyed at having the hoi-polloi walk down their road. I'd say it's a pretty good example of the problems that exist......

Your words. Read the articles and stop posting false claims. You can't say it wasn't justified, it's that simple (for most).
