There are rights,
and there is responsibility.
We are given rights,
to allow us to act responsibly. 

If one fights for rights,
but does not act responsibly
he/she gives up their rights,
allowing society to revoke them.

By not acting responsibly,
you are as guilty as your oppressor.

I agree.  It is not right.  But it is also ineffective and dangerous.  Violent protest almost always results in the protesters losing control of the narrative.

"This effort has one goal: silence, criminalize, and penalize Floridians who want to see justice for Black lives," said ACLU of Florida executive director Micah Kubic.

You mean the same way they treat the armed black militias who are also there to protect businesses and property: 

Armed and Black. How a group of men licensed to carry guns say they are seeking racial justice



Because of its cooperation with city officials, the group is not fearful the police will attack them. In their view, they are an added layer of security in the community.

The Freedom Fighters’ mission statement reads: “Our objective is not to be the police, but the bridge to link the police and the community together.”

are you saying that there's a readily available addictive digital buffet of bias toward violent pseudo philosophy with highly charged emotional hashtags?

intellectual honesty and critical thought are being strangled

folks aren't interested in distinguishing the baby from the bath water

initiating any form of violence or the threat of isn't going to get us to where we need to be

one of the immutable laws of the universe is that process is more important than product


a peaceful process is especially important when sustainable human rights is the desired product

"I don't take responsibility at all"


He's incapable of dealing with a topic this complex, and so only makes America worse again.
And it's likely we hear "hey, it's not his fault." But it is his responsibility. He wanted the job. This is now his job: being in charge of all Americans' safety.
He has failed miserably.
 
 
Couldn't agree more, but it seems like he is not the only one who does not take responsibility.  Wouldn't it be novel if the people that actually perpetuate the violence, destruction and theft took responsibility as well?  Seems to me real progress is made in the trenches by those doing the work. {#Whistle}

“It feels like before they kind of had a mission more and kind of actually wanted to get some stories going and they were really into breaking news. They wanted to publish stuff that was new that no one was publishing,” she recalled. “Now it kind of seems like they’re just getting people to write stories on Twitter drama and taking some tweet from some crazy person and trying to make it like ‘the​ West has fallen.’”
