    We've seen some cases. How many of all colours viewed it as ridiculous?

    Lots of BAME people in my area. The police would be opening stations on every street.

    Try to keep things in perspective, Frank. They wouldn't be using tear gas in countries like that as we have seen in some cases.

    For clarity Terry, I worded it badly: my post should have read "..and we've seen enough reporting in the UK from the US of white people calling the police because someone black has appeared in their neighbourhood."

    I haven't taken over yet, Frank. Patience. Keep calm for now. Catastrophizing won't help.

    In my area, the protests have been people of all colors. Whites, Asian Americans, Mexican Americans, other Latinos, blacks, African Americans... My Armenian American neighbors have a BLM sign in their front yard for support. Makes sense, socal only about 30%, non-Hispanic white. The other 70% has background from all over. At least in my area, from what I can see, and from what I've seen on the local news, pretty much everyone believes Floyd was killed by police brutality.

    I know there were further protesters in downtown today, but they've all been peaceful so far. Our local police force took a knee with protesters today before they started work.

    Who knows, maybe this will turn into a issue that ends up uniting us?

    I'm with you now. Yes, I remember seeing the one where the poor guy was trying to get into his apartment building and a woman confronted him then called the police. Disgraceful behaviour. The police should be slapping charges on such people, the upset they cause warrants some action.

    Sigh. My shipment of nukes still hasn’t come in yet. Damn customs.

    Protestors? Did someone say protestors? I saw three of them running down the street the other day. One of the protestors had a 41" Sony Smart TV. Another protestor had a Kitchen Aid 12 Speed Mixer. And the third protestor had a 16" MacBook Pro. I'm trying to figure out what exactly they were protesting with all that new electronic equipment?

    Maybe the high price of electricity?

    Riots are always a good time to go shopping for bargains, N

    I feel sorry for the small businesses. It's bad enough in normal times but right now they are already trying to stay afloat.
