I saw video of the protests and it looked pretty wild. Some of the protestors were acting in a far more aggressive manner than the victims who have been shot by police. And yet cops managed to not shoot anyone (yet). So it is possible for police to use restraint, as long as they are outnumbered.

A few knuckleheads hell. They are blocking interstates and looting everything they can get their hands on. This is not protests this is rioting. I am an uptown Charlotte resident and this is out of control.

Shots being fired on a periscope feed I'm watching. Apparently someone else was shot in the head. Also they are talking about a bomb that went off. Not sure how much of this is crap on the ground or truth but looks nuts.

They should be protesting peacefully like they are doing in Tulsa. A shame a few knuckleheads are being rude.
If by few you mean hundreds or thousands then yeah. If you mean protesting as in gangs decked out in full colors then yeah.

They are carjackings on the interstates, looting, rioting, cops are being spit on and having rocks thrown at them. National guard getting called in, gunshots, people getting shot, gang fights, bottles getting thrown and hitting cops and other protestors.

Those silly knuckleheads.
