Actually, Timpa was choked in a more horrifying way. Someone sat on his lungs and sat there for 13 minutes. NOBODY gave a damn. #whitesuprimacyisnowhistory #BLMisracist

So how does someone measure and compare outrage? One guy gets sat on and that is 'more horrifying'. I'll be honest, most of the time I watch the news I don't get personally affected. When I do its either someone I know or a neighbour. However I will protest when the government acts like a dictatorship and is taking away rights that benefit people.

George Floyd wasn't white and I still don't care.
The fentanyl overdose would have killed him sitting in his car anyway.

The police didn’t do anything wrong. From what I understand was that he was on meth and on other drugs from the test. He was sitting in his car and then the police took him handcuffed into their car. He then said that he was claustrophobic, the police questioned this because he was just sitting in the front seat in his car! Then he said that he would rather be on the ground...

They got this all on the news and everything, not only that but they have solved this case

Apparently he had been sitting at the wheel for some time. Someone from the convenience store went outside and took the plate number and called 911 saying he had passed a fake bill and was just sitting there. Too messed up to drive? Still I would like confirmation if he did indeed pass a bad 20, which he alluded to in the new bodycam footage, saying he didn't know if it was fake. I haven't found anything definite yet in the news.

The key difference between the two stories is exposure. George Floyd's murder was caught on civilian camera and Tony Timpa's? murder was on cop cam. I only assume you're referring to Timpa's murder. Feel free to correct me if I am wrong. And even if you aren't referring to that case, it doesn't really matter. It isn't much of a double standard if the efforts of the George Floyd protests help those who were in Timpa's position or any other person no matter what their skin color.

The difference in exposure is due to skin color.

The civilian camera footage was cut and cropped to fit the narrative.

And a double standard is a double standard.

Do you think these protests are only for George Floyd?

No. In the rare cases these riots are about anything except Socialist propaganda, stealing ("looting") from shops (mostly owned by blacks), arson, senseless violence and just generally creating mayhem, they are about black lives.

Another purpose is to blame it on Donald Trump and showing him as a poor leader. Come November 4th, nobody is going to pretend to care about black lives. Except for those of us who actually do.

I don't recall mentioning anything about riots. When you call one group of people protesting and another group of people rioting (and they're not) then I call that a double standard.

If you call it "protests" when people use a killing as an excuse to set property on fire and help themselves to free electronics, then we sure as hell have different standards. You may spin that any way you like.

I do not call that protest. The difference is you appear to be saying all these protests are riots and that is just not what is happening.

No, we can’t have all lives matter protests. They either are ignored or the people get cancelled. (A sports broadcaster lost his job after saying all lives matter)
