Last night, that little pissant Jake Paul joined others who had no interest in actually protesting police violence in looting a mall. Honestly, who f**king cares? It’s a distraction from the real story, which is that protests continued to erupt around the nation over Derek Chauvin’s murder George Floyd. How did the police react to protestors protesting police violence? By inflicting more police violence. It’s a shame that Jake Paul would distract from this, but maybe all those people who clicked on this because of Jake Paul can be witness to scenes of unprovoked police violence around the nation last night.
This is just what was caught on camera:
Here is the video. On LIVE TV the APD just broke car windows, slashed tires, tazed both passengers and arrested both passengers for NOTHING. RIPPED THEM OUT OF THER CAR. #AtlantaRiots #ATLFORUS #BlackLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/9XFDEdq7qr— nina | blm (@imactuallynina) May 31, 2020

Share widely: National guard and MPD sweeping our residential street. Shooting paint canisters at us on our own front porch. Yelling “light em up” #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd #JusticeForGeorge #BlackLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/bW48imyt55— Tanya Kerssen (@tkerssen) May 31, 2020
this proves that these protests were NEVER A RIOT until police enters the scene THEY ARE THE ONES WHO USES VIOLENCE. PR0TESTERS WERE LITERALLY JUST SITTING THERE PEACEFULLY, FIGHTING FOR SOME BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS THAT YOU CAN'T UNDERSTAND #BLACK_LIVES_MATTER pic.twitter.com/BGM9J5stdO— BLM ♡ | 📌 (@_jeonanamilk) May 31, 2020
In the last twenty four hours we have seen hundreds if not thousands of clips in which police forces across America appear to escalate violence on the streets for no legitimate purpose. https://t.co/ncfCoZnzh1— southpaw (@nycsouthpaw) May 31, 2020
Even goddamn John Cusack was assaulted by police.
Gonna go out on a limb here and say that John Cusack is probably not a sufficiently dire threat to public safety to justify the use of force. https://t.co/FikIwnnt1L— Ben Burgis (@BenBurgis) May 31, 2020
Meanwhile, before he turned in early for the night, Trump was out there inflaming.
This is deadly assault. This is attempted murder. You don’t get to RUN PEOPLE OVER even if you’re a cop. Every cop in these cars should be fired and prosecuted. https://t.co/Ef0idfba1Q— Jill Filipovic (@JillFilipovic) May 31, 2020

This about sums up the state of things in America right now, from the former Director of Government Ethics:
100,000 dead from a virus, more than any other country; white gunmen storming a state capital; black jogger lynched; police murdering a man on camera; police attacking peaceful protesters & reporters; a president glorifying violence; crowds burning cars and looting.
