I believe we're at the appropriate level of outrage and protesting. I do not agree with the violence and looting.

95% of it now is not about George Floyd it’s about hurting the police, rioting, looting.

Outragous. Protest is ok, rioting and violence is not. Look at how many innocent people have been hurt or killed. That accually agree with the protest.

An excuse for morons to steal and set fires. They are not protests, but riots. 99% of those participating lack the intelligence to know the reason.

The police officer was fired and he is in jail. What more do the protesters want? Two police officers from Atlanta were fired for excessive force on protesters. Three are on desk duty. My son was hired for the NYPD, he turned it down. Now I am happy he did. The police are losing respect, but not mine. If I was a police officer I would treat everyone as equals regardless of race or color. I would watch them shoot eac...

If you think the protests are just about George Floyd, you missed something. If you would let them shoot each other, perhaps we are all glad your son turned down a police job, just in case it runs in the family.

A New York police officer was hurt when a protester hit him in the back of the head with a brick. They are stealing and burning down buildings. Is this what you call a peaceful protest?

Excessive doesn't begin to describe the asinine behavior of the people destroying businesses, homes and the like. Thoughtless, uncaring, unrelated, rude are just a few. Big picture is, we'll ALL be paying for the ignorance of others when cost of everything goes up in attempt to make up for what was destroyed.

I have lived most of My life in Baltimore city and Baltimore County and I am old enough to remember the 1968 riots and the 2015 riots (yes, they were RIOTS). Strangely , this time , Baltimore is mostly peaceful & civilized in the present . Perhaps we have learned that violence & burning down your city is NOT the way to solve your problems. TEACHABLE MOMENT!!!!!

You are right it is not right to burn down your own city but I hope you were one of the peaceful protester. Change can't occur unless everyone is willing to pick up the cross and lead or follow. Help to support and make a change so this will not happen again because no on will die because someone who was prejudice knelt on their neck or shoot them or chokehold them. People will die but not because of prejudice ...
