Police shot a black man on Tuesday and despite the facts being in dispute, one thing is for sure, Sunday may be the biggest protest yet.

Charlotte is mad at Cam Newton for not standing up for the protestors by not taking a knee like Colin Kaepernick.

The protestors feel like people like Cam Newton, black men and women with powerful voices, should be the one’s that are protesting.

Now the protestors are threatening to surround the stadium and keep Sunday’s NFL game away from the city.

The Carolina Panthers play the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday and the game is supposed to take place in Charlotte, but if the protestors don’t get what they want, the NFL is going to pay.

The protestors want to see the video of Keith Scott getting killed and they want to make sure it is as the cops said it would be.

Police in Charlotte say that Keith Scott was holding a gun, but some of the eyewitnesses said that the gun looks like one.

Now they have a new demand, they want Cam Newton to take a knee for them or they are going to block the game.

People are always criticizing rioters when they loot neighborhood businesses, but this protest is meant to be peaceful and is designed to have the maximum effect on the wallets of the rich.

Will they follow through? We’ll find out Sunday.

Do you think blocking an NFL game will help the cause or hurt it?

Milwaukee burned over the weekend because the news spread that a white cop shot a fleeing black man in the back. The facts prove something different.

On Saturday afternoon, the Milwaukee police pulled over a suspicious vehicle and the two occupants immediately fled on foot.

One officer was in a foot pursuit when Sylville Smith started to raise a stolen gun.

The cop demanded the suspect to drop the weapon and instead continued to raise the weapon. That is when the officer fired on the man.

Immediately after the shooting, the local residents were angry with the police.

Apparently it doesn’t matter the police were trying to keep the neighborhood safe and a man with a stolen gun tried to raise a gun on the officer.

Apparently it doesn’t matter the cop was black, unlike the reports that spread like wildfire on social media.

Even as reports clarified some details on Sunday after the original riots the previous night, people took to the streets again on Sunday night for more “protesting” and burning cars.

The entire craziness in Milwaukee is due to false reporting and the spread of lies on social media. If the initial reports said a black man with a stolen gun attempted to fire on a black officer during a foot chase, and the officer shot him, then we wouldn’t have seen the riots.

Some people in America are reacting to these shootings too quickly and they quickly turn to violence.

As Americans we understand there is a problem when we see videos like the one below.

But, the problem will not get solved when people react violently to police who are actually doing their job. It is time to end the violence and find some peaceful solutions.

What do you think about the riots in Milwaukee? Let us know in the comments below.

The city of Baltimore has officially lost it.

First, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said the most idiotic, dangerous thing any mayor of any city could ever say:

“It’s a very delicate balancing act because while we try to make sure that they were protected from the cars and the other things that were going on, we also gave those who wished to destroy space to do that as well, and we work very hard to keep that balance and to put ourselves in the best position to de-escalate.”

Giving permission for thugs to destroy the city she’s supposed to keep safe. Good job, Mayor Rawlings-Blake.

Of course, I can call the rioters “thugs”–but it turns, the Baltimore City Council got in trouble for that word.

As Baltimore burns, Baltimore City Council President Jack Young took to address apparently the most important thing on his desk: apologizing for calling rioters “thugs.”

He instead called those responsible for the shocking violence “misdirected.”

You think?

Keep in mind these “misdirected” rioters have torched 15 buildings and hundreds of cars, and attacked more than 15 police officers. Their pictures could be in Webster’s Dictionary under the word “thug.”

“We are all Baltimoreans,” Young added.

I’m sure all Baltimoreans will sleep a little better tonight knowing that their mayor is helping give rioters “space to destroy” and that their city council president is primarily concerned with not hurting rioters’ feelings.

Toya Graham was having none of it when she found her 16-year-old son Michael wearing a hoodie and mask in the midst of the Baltimore riots that erupted on city streets following the police custody death of Freddie Gray early last week.

Upon finding her son in the crowd, Ms. Graham started slapping him around the head and neck forcing him to back away from the street trouble and occasionally turn to face his mother long enough for the slapping to begin anew.

A TV crew filmed Ms. Graham screaming at her son who was dressed entirely in black to “take the mask off” (which he did) and to “get over here” to face more hands on discipline.

When interviewed, Ms. Graham said:

“He gave me eye contact. And at that point, you know, not even thinking about cameras or anything like that. That’s my only son and at the end of the day I don’t want him to be a Freddie Gray.”

Ms. Graham was referencing the 25-year-old black man who died from as severe spinal injury and a crushed trachea in police custody earlier in the month.

“At that point, I just lost it.”…”I was shocked, I was angry, because you never want to see your child out there doing that.”

“There’s some days that I’ll shield him in the house just so he won’t go outside and I know that I can’t do that for the rest of my life.”…”I’m a no-tolerant mother. Everybody that knows me, know I don’t play that.”

Graham, a single mom with six children, denounced the riots and violence against police. She said the unrest in Baltimore is no way to go about getting justice for Freddie Gray and that she doesn’t want that life for her son. This reputation is why her son recoiled the second he saw her.

“He knew he was in trouble.” “He said when ‘I seen you,’ he said, ‘ma, my instinct was to run.'”

Graham said that after she got her son home they watched news coverage of the demonstrations and riots on television as images of their mother son encounter went viral. Graham says comments started appearing on her son’s Facebook page in support of her.

“Friends and everybody making comments and saying you know, you shouldn’t be mad at your mother, you should give her a hug,” said Graham.

Graham hopes the incident will serve as a teachable moment for her son. “And by him seeing everything what’s going on I just hope, I’m not sure, but I hope that he understands the seriousness of what was going on last night.”

By late Monday night, the video had become so popular that Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Batts referenced the incident during a press conference. He said that many of the rioters were young people from nearby schools and encouraged parents get their children home.

“And if you saw in one scene, you had one a mother who grabbed their child who had a hood on his head and she started smacking him on the head because she was so embarrassed. I wish I had more parents who took charge of their kids tonight,” Batts told reporters.

“I think these were youth coming out of the high school and they thought it was cute to throw cinder blocks at the police department, and address it that way.”

So far, at least 20 police officers have been injured in the violence and one person was critically hurt in a fire. Police made 235 arrests, including 34 juveniles. The streets were calmer early Tuesday as the National Guard deployed in time to enforce the 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew in effect.

Rioters protesting the police custody death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore following his April 12 arrest received support for their lawlessness from some unlikely quarters — Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

Police arrested Gray on a weapons charge in a high-crime area of Baltimore known for drugs.

According to Baltimore Deputy Police Commissioner Jerry Rodriguez. Grey “gave up without the use of force.” Somewhere between the time police arrested Grey and placed in a police transport van and the van’s arrival at its destination, Grey has suffered a severe spinal cord injury according to a police report.

Mayor Rawlings-Blake said:

I’ve made it very clear that I work with the police, and instructed them to do everything that they could to make sure that the protesters could exercise their right to free speech.

It’s a very delicate balancing act because while we tried to make sure they were protected from the cars and the other things that were going on, we gave those who wished to destroy space to do that, as well. And we worked very hard to keep that balance and to put ourselves in the best position to deescalate. And that’s what you saw.

Baltimore police made 34 arrests during Saturday’s demonstration, and six officers were allegedly injured. Protestors smashed several downtown storefronts and damaged several police cars.

Despite her comments about creating a “space” for more destructive elements in protests, Mayor Rawlings-Blake blamed “outside forces”…for “inciting some of the ‘shut this city down’ sort of messaging.” according to the Baltimore Sun.

The mayor then made a call for peace noting that burial would held for Gray on Monday and that the Baltimore Police Department’s full report on Grey’s arrest and death should be released by this weekend.

Currently, police are getting ready for additional protests later today following reports that several groups were planning to work together and target their violence against police.
