    Some More Cops Who Need to Be Fired

    I’m honestly shocked reading LinkedIN lately. I’ve seen posts targeted at racial groups. On LINKEDIN! One of the posts was from a 10 year HR professional. Like wth is going on?

    The nuts are rumored to be leaving Richmond to target Hanover/Mechanicsville (We’re just outside the city). Hanover is in full lockdown riot mode/gear. They are coming to target schools and the historic parks. These are nuts that just tried to burn people alive and destroyed the city last night. The night before that assaulted a reporter and robbed her. Criminal justice grad or not they come down my way it’s on. You ain’t burning my ****

    One would have to be fool to think it doesn’t. I was trying to figure out for awhile if a case I dealt with recently was racism. My ex’s family was Chinese. You could tell they despised me for not being Asian but also not being from wealth. We tried to overcome them but they just were horrible to me (For the first year they tried to ignore my existence.) . Even after me and her moved in together. They were so relentless in how bad they acted I think we realized that other she would have to cut them off or her be disowned or we would split. She ended up not being able to handle them so we split (I’m convinced there’s suicides in her whole family from the stories of how they treat the kids.). Noted I met the entire family and I was always the only white guy at gatherings. I was trying to figure out if that’s just discrimination, prejudice or racism. Or a combination.

    You know interesting enough I have shirt that was given to me As a fun gift because of my hard cut throat justice views from my degree. It has the guy from V from vendetta (blanking on the name) and it says “Vote” on top and on the bottom “You have the right to make your government fear you.”. I actually love the shirt.

    Was that suppose to be some clever North South reference because if so I’ve heard better. My friend is from Philly actually. Home of riots as he jokes sometimes because of their sports teams. We’ve helped each other through some of our toughest times. We are brutally honest to each other. We don’t always see eye to eye but on this we do. You don’t make a statement by destroying your own city. Richmond understands that. You don’t make statements by beating a store owner to death on camera. Richmond understands that. You make a statement by voting. By showing up to elections to force change. Want to guess which group shows up at elections usually? And which group just blows it off? Did you listen to the Atlanta Mayor’s speech. It’s quite amazing isn’t it? She said you weren’t helping make black lives better by showing liquored up at a protest and destroying stores and burning cars. She told them to go home because if you aren’t there to truly make a statement you were disgracing Floyd and every person who died from injustice in this country. She is right. And I’m talking about ANYONE at these protests that are there to start riots. But if you are step into someone else’s city and start destroying it I’m fully down with them kindly chucking that person butt right out of town. No one in Richmond would have said a bad word about the protest happening if it wasn’t hijacked and led to our city being burned and lives nearly loss. You want to sit here and tell me it’s ok if those people had been burned alive as rioters watched and intentionally blocked fireman from saving them? Because that’s the reality of Richmond police didn’t take major action. They were trying to save Black businesses being torched. The people that were suppose to be there to ****ing make a statement about Floyd and injustices in this country toward blacks and minorities destroyed black small businesses and nearly burned two people alive. So please justify it to me. I’d love you to try to.

    I’m not worried about inconvenience. Heck I run the Richmond marathon every year they shut downs half the city. I’m inconveniencing everyone lol. What I won’t stand for is Richmond used as a battle ground. That’s how most of Richmond feels. The population in Richmond is appalled today. We keep being the platform for extremist groups of far right and left that have no other intention than destroying everything. We have our fair share of protest but those peaceful. We don’t destroy our own city here. Anyone who goes to another city with the intention to destroy it is not a protestor. They are a terrorist honestly. They are there to intimidate citizens, bring fear, and cause destruction. There is difference between protestor and rioter/terrorist. You can’t even call people that rolled into Richmond last night rioters. They were there to scare, endanger, and destroy. They nearly burned a women and child alive and intentionally tried to stop firefighters from saving them. Completely innocent people. Police had barge their way through so they could save them.

    I know which thread you are talking about. I didn’t defend the statues. As I remember I was explaining Richmond’s rationale of still having them but I got gang attacked for attempting to explain why Richmond doesn’t focus on them. The statues are there because of the money they bring in from tourism. They bring in significant revenue (I mean major money.) which anyone who knows the city of Richmond knows they get themselves into money troubles versus the other counties around them. That’s not justifying or defending. Richmond just looks at them as awkward/dark part of history which the statues also sit on the most historic and expensive street in the city. If they were to do anything that would bring the value waay down which they can’t afford to do. It’s why even the mayor of Richmond who is African American added context to all the statues rather than attempt to remove them. It’s a strange situation but the city can barely fund its schools, has been trying to build a new ballpark for its team it promised one to 10 years ago when it arrived and trying to build a new arena to replace the crappy coliseum. Salaries are ok here but honestly if not for cheap housing many would be in real trouble. Statues aren’t high on the priority list because they only end up a issue when a extremist group comes and vandalizes them. Like I it’s a weird situation. But with all the issues Richmond has to address with money and schools the statues are not even on the list because currently they can’t replace that tourism revenue they get.

    But the moment they turn on their people that they are claiming to be fighting alongside for where is that line drawn as far as how far one will go? Is there even a line? Also is it then just every man for himself blacks people are ready to turn on each other to send a message?

    Side note: I have family in SoCal. Never thought I’d see riots in Santa Monica. Atleast non laker related ones. I can’t see LA leaders taking lightly to one of the wealthiest parts of LA getting trashed.

    Richmond police were ****ed last night being alone with Cap police/VCU police against a whole out of town extremist mob. The governor and mayor absolutely dropped the ball and city paid for it. Rioters were trying to burn people alive so eventually the police resorted to some well harsh measures in order to save those people.

    I’ve had three black people tell me today they would burn a whole city to the ground even their own black people homes and businesses to send a message. Does that sound rational? The Cops in Richmond last night were defending black lives and businesses against the group that was suppose to be fighting for them. We both the know the group that game had no intention of that. There’s a video of a black guy hugging officers and saying these aren’t bad guys. The guy is literally being told he’s a traitor, not black, etc in front of the officers because he walked up and shook their hand and hugged them. I mean mercy a black guy is just saying it’s not all cops and his own folks were ready to get him.

    I dare say Richmond is actually one of the more enlightened cities. Like for some reason people think the city is still living in Civil War era. Not even close. Most of the couples here are interracial and out of that amount most are white/black. Honestly, I saw much more racism issues growing up in NoVA than Richmond. I was shocked when I moved to Richmond. In NoVA I had only a few black friends growing up because many of the blacks on my bus and school hated white people. I ended up nearly jumped countless times. I didn’t understand the hate as I tried to make friends with anyone and everyone. Plus I guess I was a bit naive to people not liking people because of their skin (My parents even said that I was pretty oblivious to why certain ones hated me for no reason. They just didn’t want to say why.). Interesting my best friend when I was in NoVA and now Richmond are black. That friend spoke out last night about the damage and absolute ripped into those that did this. Again the early reports and research says there were very few or any Richmond people involved. The extremist group planned it on twitter and were even posting their plans how to destroy the city and evade police. The city should have been locked down Sat morning after the fiasco Friday night. The mayor dropped the ball. He needed to do what Atlanta did. He set a curfew today but it’s too late. I’m proud of the city responding in calm protest today with the vigil. Watching the police chief driven to tears over how the rioters were about to let a child burn before they could force their way through is hard to stomach. Richmonders are still in shock of the events of last night.

    Don’t you dare try tell me about my city bro. I’ve lived here most of my life. Richmond is one of the most diverse cities in the state. The universities are the most diverse in the state. There is every kind of business here with all kinds of backgrounds. Our protests are calm when they have happened. You may get some vandalism but that’s whatever. Usually it’s just one idiot doing it for the hell out of it. These freaking nuts that come in here and try to terrorize our people to make a statement other with giant ass gun rallies or this BS of burning our city have pushed our limit. We’re fed up with being used and having to clean up the aftermath. This is Our **** ing home. Not theirs. THIS IS OUR HOME. You don’t bring a fight into our home.

    You may find this humorous but Richmonders don’t. Last night had nothing to do with statues. Sure they were obvious targets but this was a absolute domestic terrorist attack. The rioters shot a random guy in his car and he is in critical condition in mcv. Parts of VCU burned. Entire sections burned and looted. Our city had peaceful protest vigil today that showed what this city is. We’re tired of being the center every ****ing idiot extremist group. If you think statues will change that it won’t. Richmond will always be considered the South no matter what it does. Richmond has moved on and progressed. Then every time there’s a fight about race, guns, etc these ****ing POS extremists drag our city into it. Stay the **** out of our city if you are coming for a fight because our city is fed up of being used as a platform.

    I’m sorry but I’m furious at the out of town group that rolled into Richmond last night and destroyed parts of the city, left officers /firefighters injured, blocked emergency services intentionally from getting to a child inside a burning building to The point where the police had force their way through so fireman could get the child out. They almost burned a bus driver alive but she thankfully got out. Friday we were upset then about destruction and expectEd actions to be taken but none were. Cops were severely outnumbered and were screaming through scanners they needed help and that it was a desperate situation. This was absolutely premeditated. The extremist group bragged about the chaos and destruction on twitter. Numerous black owned businesses were trashed and now closed indefinitely if not for good.
