One cannot set a concrete wall on fire with a chunk of pressboard.

Is this video taken out of context, or maybe edited creatively?

(I get all of my news from Al Jazeera, CCTV-China, RT, and other reliable sources. ;))

Sounds like he gets it. Honestly you're trying to make this seem worse then it is, has far as I can tell, nobody's dead, the worst property damage so far has been a bonfire put around an elk, flaming garbage cans, and this one chunk of flaming pressboard leaned up against concrete. Its a damn side better then the tipped over cars set on fire you get after the superbowl when everybody's hammered.

because people that talk, and not the people that do things,   couch  specialists always know everything "better":, but they are completely worthless and irrelevant.

Some people did, many others ignored it because it was convenient. There's a reason that the movement to abolish slavery dates back to the origins of the nation, for instance. Many people disagreed with the horrors of the past, but such things are difficult to change.

Police will do what they want, get used to it. And the rioting will continue. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime/video-of-police-officer-kneeling-on-man-s-neck-in-allentown-sparks-protests/ar-BB16GnLB?ocid=msedgdhp

The Allentown police department had changed its rules earlier in July, in the wake of national protests against Floyd’s death, to disallow chokeholds and kneeling on someone’s neck as forms of restraint.

In the video from Allentown, the unidentified man is heard shouting after the officer places a knee on his neck.

How do you "know better" with something that has been practiced and accepted for thousands of years since the beginning of recorded history?  Slavery (and I mean all forms of it) wasn't evil until 1776 when Jefferson penned his immortal words.  This basically echoed the Peace of Westphalia (which could further go back to the Edict of Milan) and the writings of Blackstone, Locke, Smith, and hundreds of others.

I'm a big fan of the BBC. They get accused of left-wing bias and right-wing bias, so they've probably got it about right.

Well ive never heard them accused of right wing bias.

One of the funniest things i seen was a debate show.about brexit.

The anouncer said we have 2 anti brexit people here and a brexiteer,but the brexiteer is stuck in trafick,so we will start without him.

I never heard of PT News network.  Where are they from?

It's a forum like this, apparently, and for truckers.  So there's apparently no source for that video.  Also, "unrest" and "protests" are not the same thing as riots:

Forum | PT News Network

PT News Network is a media outlet covering breaking news, events and topics specifically geared towards those working in the trucking industry and all Americans!

Something that is still going on in this day and age. They'll fight for reparations for people who were emancipated hundreds of years ago and are no longer alive than they will for the people currently in slavery.

Yes, I pointed that out in this thread and other threads.  Rioting is a trigger word and often is not an accurate description of what is really going on.

Traffic is the spelling I learned, from the dictionary, not school.

The BBC (and the rest of the media here and in the US) has an over-representation of staff and contributors of Jewish origin, which has lead to the occasional accusation of pro-Israel bias.

From what the video says it's look like that building is "federal property" that the police are enforcing people not to be on. (Said in the video, by police)

The lady using the baby purposely was playing with it on the federal property because she knows they won't tear gas and shoot rubber bullets like they would if it was an adult breaking the rule.

It does seem like pointless child endangerment. You're not really making much of a point.

I did watch the whole video.  The  sound was hard to hear, but still, promoting freedom is not the same as rioting.  Why did the person making the video not clariofy what caused the police to react the way they did if it was a protest.  I could tell there was no intention in that woman with the baby to be involved in a riot.  Once things went south, which we did not see the beginning of, she was trying to get out of there. 

It looked to me like she was showing the cops she had a baby with her, and asking the cops not to hurt them. Not as a human shield. Looked more like a plea to not hurt hurt her baby. But, of course republithugs will change the story to suit their political agenda.

In my school we weren't allowed a dictionary,in fact the dictionary was one of the first books that was put in the pyre of fake knowledge.

Weeks before the actual school was burnt down.

Happy days.

Of which you are one. Care to rephrase that?
