Rioters Want Mayhem – Not Justice

Rioters Want Mayhem – Not Justice

© David Burton 2020


     George Floyd, a black man died while in police custody in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Monday, 25 May 2020 .The news from Minneapolis just five days later, on 30 May 2020, read: “The Third Precinct police station in Minneapolis was set ablaze Thursday night as violent protests continued in the city -- and other cities across the U.S. -- following Monday's death of George Floyd, a black man who died while in police custody.” (Ref. 301) There was one error in the report – the word “protests” should have been “riots” Many, if not most, of the people committing the outrages across the country, then and afterwards, were not protestors – they were rioters! Justice for George Floyd was not their main objective – committing mayhem, was.

     In 1963, a massive protest March on Washington took place when some 250,000 people traveled to Washington, D.C. and gathered in front of the Lincoln Memorial. Also known as the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, the event aimed to draw attention to continuing challenges and inequalities faced by African Americans a century after emancipation. It was also the occasion of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s now-iconic “I Have A Dream” speech.[311] The March on Washington took place without any violence; no property was torched, vandalized or looted and there were no attacks on police. The violence, arson, looting and physical attacks on law enforcement personnel in reaction to the death of George Floyd are not protests. In stark contrast, the March on Washington was a true protest. I know – I was there.

     All too often when a black person is killed by a white policeman, there is a rush to judgement – a rush to judgement before all the facts have been uncovered, a rush to charge racism before the truth is known. Anyone truly wanting justice for George Floyd would have waited for all the facts to come to light. Minneapolis acted with unprecedented speed in firing the four police officers involved and charging one of the officers with 3rd degree murder. Anyone truly wanting to remember George Floyd could have donated to charity in his name, set up and/or contributed to a memorial fund in his name, or held a peaceful vigil in his honor. Anyone truly wanting to remember George Floyd would not be rioting on the streets of America and assaulting police officers in cities nowhere near Minneapolis. Anyone truly wanting to remember George Floyd would not be attacking black police officers along with white police officers. Anyone truly wanting to remember George Floyd would not be looting and destroying property of those totally unconnected to George Floyd, the police or Minneapolis.

     An extremely early report – just 4 days later - on the incident reads as follows:

     “Prosecutors have warned there is ‘evidence that does not support criminal charges’ in the case of four cops accused of killing George Floyd, as they say police can use a ‘certain amount of force - but not excessive’.
     “At a press conference Thursday, Mike Freeman, county attorney for Hennepin County, condemned the actions of officer Derek Chauvin as 'horrific and terrible'.
     "But he said prosecutors needed to determine if the white cop used 'excessive' force when he knelt on the black man's neck for eight minutes until he passed out and later died.
     “'That video is graphic and horrific and terrible and no person should do that,' he said.
     “ 'But my job in the end is to prove he violated a criminal statute - but there is other evidence that does not support a criminal charge.'
     “Freeman pleaded for patience from the Minneapolis community ravaged by Floyd's death as he warned that the investigation 'can't be rushed' . . .
      - - -
     “Police officers are allowed to use reasonable force on citizens to restrain them during arrest but the force cannot be 'excessive'.
     “Prosecutors must now prove that this force was 'excessive' . . .
     “Outrage is building across the nation over how pinning Floyd down by his neck as he gasps for breath and begs the cop to stop could ever be considered 'reasonable'.
     “Freeman did not provide any detail over what the 'other evidence' could be that provides a defense for Chauvin's actions but said his office now had to 'wade through' it . . .
     “ 'My business is 'is it criminal?' and that's what we have to prove,' he said.
     “Freeman said he understood that people want swift action but assured the public that 'we just can't rush this'.
      - - -
     “State troopers have been forced to intervene after violent protests and riots broke out in the city and left one looter dead.
     "Shocking images Thursday morning showed the widespread destruction left overnight after Wednesday night's protest escalated into violence as cops and protesters clashed . . .” (Ref. 302)

     Preliminary autopsy results for George Floyd are contained in the charging document for fired police officer Derek Chauvin. The relevant portion of the report states:

     "The Hennepin County Medical Examiner (ME) conducted Mr. Floyd’s autopsy on May 26, 2020.
     "The full report of the ME is pending but the ME has made the following preliminary findings.
     “The autopsy revealed no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation. Mr. Floyd had underlying health conditions including coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease. The combined effects of Mr. Floyd being restrained by the police, his underlying health conditions and any potential intoxicants in his system likely contributed to his death.
     The defendant had his knee on Mr. Floyd’s neck for 8 minutes and 46 seconds in total.
     Two minutes and 53 seconds of this was after Mr. Floyd was non-responsive. Police are trained that this type of restraint with a subject in a prone position is inherently dangerous.
(Ref. 314)

     On the other hand, “An autopsy commissioned for George Floyd’s family found that he died of asphyxiation due to neck and back compression when a Minneapolis police officer held his knee on Floyd's neck for several minutes and ignored his cries of distress, the family’s attorneys said Monday.
     “The autopsy by a doctor . . . found the compression cut off blood to Floyd’s brain, and weight on his back made it hard to breathe . . .
     “The family’s autopsy differs from the official autopsy as described in a criminal complaint against the officer. That autopsy included the effects of being restrained, along with underlying health issues and potential intoxicants in Floyd’s system, but also said it found nothing ‘to support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation.’ “ (Ref. 315)

     Reports show that George Floyd had at least five stints in jail. Floyd had moved to Minnesota to start a new life shortly after being released from prison in Texas. His death came as he was being arrested for allegedly paying with a fake $20 bill at a convenience store. None of the officers could have been aware of Floyd's more than a decade-old criminal history at the time of the arrest.
     In Texas, Floyd had been arrested in his 20s for theft and then later for armed robbery. He had been sentenced to five years in prison in 2009 for aggravated assault stemming from a robbery where Floyd entered a woman’s home, pointed a gun at her stomach and searched the home for drugs and money. In one charging document, officials noted Floyd had two convictions in the 1990s for theft and delivery of a controlled substance, but it is not clear if Floyd served any time for either of those offenses. [302]

     All I have written so far, focuses on the events and the as-yet unverified facts surrounding the deadly encounter of George Floyd and the Minneapolis police. We next come to a number of questions and issues. One leading question is: Are blacks being unfairly targeted by white police officers? What are the real facts and not the slogans, misconceptions, propaganda and outright lies?

    “Data collected by the Washington Post on the use of lethal force by police officers since 2015 indicate that, relative to the proportion of the population, Blacks are over-represented among all those killed by police. . . according to the US Census estimates, Blacks made up 12% of the population. However, from 2015 – 2019 they accounted for 26.4% of those that were killed by police under all circumstances. In other words, Blacks were the victims of the lethal use of force by police at nearly twice their rate in the general population. Whites make up the majority of victims of police use of lethal force (50.3%) from 2015 – 2019, BUT they also currently make up the majority of the population (61%). Asians make up about 5% of the US population but just 2% of the victims of the lethal use of force by police. Hispanics make up 18% of the US population and just over 18% of the victims of the use of lethal force by police. Native Americans make up 1% of the US population and 1.7% of the victims of the use of lethal force by police.” (Ref. 303)

     Let’s take a closer look these numbers. First, we note that the phrase, “Blacks are over-represented among all those killed by police” does not say by white police - it says “police”, meaning all police, black, white, brown, red, yellow, etc. Second, the numbers presented do not indicate if the “lethal force by police officers” was or was not justified. Third, while “Blacks were the victims of the lethal use of force by police at nearly twice their rate in the general population”, the statement does not tell us how the crime rate committed by Blacks compares with the crime rate of the general population. Were more Blacks subject to the lethal use of force by police at nearly twice their rate in the general population simply because Blacks commit twice as many crimes per capita than the general population? We will look at the answer to this question shortly. In the meantime, let's look at another related issue.

     Here in 2020, America is once again in flames because agitators, rioters and others are indignant about the death of a Black man at the hands of a White law enforcement officer. What about the violent deaths of thousands of other Blacks? Don’t their lives matter? And just who is killing these other Blacks – white cops? According to an FBI report from 2015, 2,664 “black or African American” persons were victims of homicide that year. The “race of offender” in 2,380 (89.3%) of the cases was determined to be “black or African American”. (Ref. 305) Maybe those persons rioting over the death of George Floyd should look elsewhere than white police for the oppressors of Blacks. Maybe they should be more concerned with the violent deaths of thousands of Blacks at the hands of other Blacks.

     Are there more interactions - fatal and non-fatal – between police and Blacks because Blacks commit more crimes? Somewhat dated information shows that “Cops killed nearly twice as many whites as blacks in 2015. According to data compiled by The Washington Post, 50 percent of the victims of fatal police shootings were white, while 26 percent were black. The majority of these victims had a gun or ‘were armed or otherwise threatening the officer with potentially lethal force,’ . . .
     “Some may argue that these statistics are evidence of racist treatment toward blacks, since whites consist of 62 percent of the population and blacks make up 13 percent of the population. But as {written} in The Wall Street Journal, 2009 statistics from the Bureau of Justice Statistics reveal that blacks were charged with 62 percent of robberies, 57 percent of murders and 45 percent of assaults in the 75 biggest counties in the country, despite only comprising roughly 15 percent of the population in these counties.” [Emphasis mine] (Ref. 304)

     An interesting side note. According to a Department of Justice report in 2015 about the Philadelphia Police Department, Black and Hispanic police officers are more likely to fire a gun at blacks than white officers. A study conducted by a University of Pennsylvania criminologist in 2015 determined that black cops were 3.3 times more likely to fire a gun than other cops at a crime scene. According to FBI data, Blacks are more likely to kill cops than be killed by cops. 40% of cop killers are black – a police officer is 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black than a cop killing an unarmed black person.[304] Where is the outrage at cops being killed by Blacks? Don’t Cops’ lives matter?

     As a possible measure of racial intolerance, we can ask if killings of unarmed Blacks by police is increasing. To this end, “We can look at the distribution of race and ethnicity among those that were killed by police while unarmed in a couple of different ways. The first is to look at all those who were unarmed when killed and, within that group of victims, examine the racial and ethnic distribution. . . In 2015, 34% of those who were unarmed when killed by police were white, 40% black, and 20% Hispanic. The percentage of whites among this group of unarmed victims increases [Emphasis mine] to nearly 49% by 2018 while the portion of blacks decreases [Emphasis mine] to 36% and Hispanics to just under 15%.” (Ref. 303)

     With respect to the violent riots that occurred after Mr. Floyd's death, let's consider some incovenient truths. If the rioters meant to honor the memory of George Floyd, they were dreadfully mistaken about the result of their actions. Many Americans - Black and White - will remember, not George Floyd, but the violence, the destruction and the looting! Realistically, many of the rioters didn’t give a damn about George Floyd or officer Derek Chauvin. They simply wanted to riot, to cause destruction, to steal, to attack police and create mayhem. They may have shouted “Black lives matter!” but the phrase was nothing but a meaningless trilogy of words to them. It would have been more truthful if they had shouted “Attack, Destroy, Loot!

     Are white cops killing Blacks really a significant problem for Blacks in America? Are there other problems that are of much greater significance being ignored – maybe deliberately by those with other agendas? In December of 2019, I wrote that “Blacks in America still face numerous problems here in the year 2019 – but, racism is not their biggest one. (Ref. 306)

     Here are some snippets from my article:

     {The Black author, Taleeb Starkes, listed the five biggest issues facing blacks in America as of September 2016. Significantly, racism or White police killing Blacks didn’t make his list.}
     “Nothing holds someone back more than seeing himself as a victim. Why? Because a victim is not responsible for his situation. Everything is someone else’s fault. [Emphasis mine] And the victim sees little chance of improving his life. How can he get ahead if someone is holding him back? All this makes the victim unhappy, frustrated and angry.”
     “Blacks repeatedly demand an ‘honest dialogue or debate about race.’ But how can there ever be an honest dialogue about race between blacks and whites when there is virtually no honest dialogue between blacks and blacks? [Emphasis mine] It’s hypocritical. And if a black doesn’t think, ‘whites are ultimately responsible for black people’s problems,’ they’re labeled a ‘sell-out,’ ‘Uncle Tom,’ or ‘race-traitor.’ “
     “As just about everyone knows, but too few talk about publicly, in majority black cities, violent black on black crime is rampant. [Emphasis mine] A Department of Justice study from 1980-2008 revealed that blacks accounted for almost half of the nation’s homicide victims (47.4%) and more than half of the offenders (52.4%) all while only being 13% of America’s population.”
     “The disintegration of the nuclear family has led to an astronomical increase of single-mother households. [Emphasis mine] According to the Moynihan Report, in 1965, nearly 25 percent of black children were born to unwed mothers. The report’s author . . . said this was a disaster in the making. He was, of course, vilified by so-called black leaders and their progressive allies. But he was right. Today the out of wedlock birth rate is nearly 75 percent. and even higher in some urban areas. [Emphasis mine]”
     “You may have noticed that racism did not make the list. Why not? It’s simple: There will be no solution to the problems afflicting black America until more blacks recognize that the issues plaguing our community are ultimately self-inflicted.
     “Does racism exist? Sure. But there are other problems far more serious. And waiting until there are no more racists will mean waiting, and making excuses, forever.”

     “Talk-show host, attorney, and best-selling author Larry Elder said the breakdown of the family -- fatherless families -- is the number one problem in America, not racism or discrimination or bad cops. [Emphasis mine] He added that when it comes to murder, nearly half of the homicides each year are black-on-black killings.
     “ ‘The number one problem domestically facing this country is the breakdown of the family,’ said Elder. . . A kid raised without a dad is five times more likely to be poor and commit crimes; nine times more likely to drop out of school; and 20 times more likely to end up in jail. ’ [Emphasis mine]
     " ‘So, you’re far more likely to end up in jail without having a dad, than you are because of a white racist cop,’ said Elder.
     “{With respect to the false claim that} ‘you could probably find evidence that, in general, cops are more willing to shoot if the perpetrator is black than white.’ Elder said, ‘What’s your data, what’s your basis for saying that? I’m talking about what the facts are. Nine hundred sixty-five people were shot by cops last year and killed. Four percent of them were white cops shooting unarmed blacks. ’ [Emphasis mine]   . . .
     " ‘In Chicago, which is a third black, a third white, a third Hispanic, 70% of the homicides are black on black . . .’ ‘Where is Black Lives Matter on that?’
     “ ‘The idea that a racist white cop shooting unarmed black people is a peril to black people is BS,’ said Elder. ‘It’s complete and total BS'. . .
     "‘Half the homicides in this country are committed by and against black people,’ said Elder. ‘Last year there were 14,000 homicides - half of them {7,000} were black [and] 96% of {those} were black on black. [Emphasis mine] Where’s the Black Lives Matter on that?’ “

     In spite of what Black Lives Matter may shout, white police killing unarmed Blacks is definitely not a major problem for Blacks.

     “When thousands of rioters burn down private businesses and even violently attack a woman in a wheelchair in response to an abhorrent act committed by one police officer, it is clear that the George Floyd riots are not about justice . . . But what exposes this so-called movement as nothing but a dangerous anarchist mob, more than when and how they act, is when they fail to protest and actually remain silent when even more black lives are at stake.
      - - -
     “{Why} is it we never heard on the news about the endless trend of cop ambushes and executions at the hands of violent criminals in recent months? Why do we never hear about the cases where cops engage in near-suicidal restraint to go the extra mile to defuse a situation? . . .
      - - -
     “Consider the following: According to the Washington Post’s database on police shootings, 17 unarmed African-Americans were killed by police in 2018. Let’s just assume the unlikely assumption that all 17 were unjustified . . . That accounts for just 0.002% of the 7,407 black homicide victims that year, according to the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report, the overwhelming majority of whom were killed by black criminals, not white criminals or police. In cases where the races of both the victim and offender were known, a staggering 88.9% of black homicide victims were murdered by black criminals.
     "This is a reoccurring epidemic every year and is made worse by the broad and indiscriminate war on cops and public safety. . . If black lives actually mattered, as all lives do, where is the outrage?
     “. . . The notion that somehow black people are broadly mistreated by the justice system in a disproportionate way is simply not true, as shown by the crime rates. Despite composing 12% of the population, they compose 55% of the homicide offenders and 53% of the homicide victims. Black males, in particular, accounted for 45% of homicides, even though they make up just 7% of the population.
     “In 2018, African-Americans accounted for 54% of those arrested for robbery, 34% of those arrested for aggravated assault, and 43% of weapons violations. In total, they composed 37.4% of all violent crime arrests. Yet despite the complaint about black imprisonment, only 33% of state and federal inmates in 2017 were black. And their numbers are dropping quicker than any other group.
     “Despite this, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, the black imprisonment rate has been down 28% from 2008-2018, while the white imprisonment rate dropped by just 13%. The jail incarceration rate for black criminals dropped 30% – to the lowest level since 1990 – while the white incarceration rate actually increased 12% over the past decade.
     “Thus, the underlying problem of violence among black youth in inner cities has nothing to do with the police. We could abolish the police tomorrow, and it certainly would not save all those lives lost. Again, the most common victims of such breakdowns in law and order are African-Americans.
     “The sad reality is criminal interactions are disproportionately high among black citizens because of the aforementioned statistics. Therefore, the majority of justified police shootings as well as unjustified shootings will unfortunately be disproportionate among the black inner-city population. When it comes to individual incidents, it’s all about the facts on the ground and pursuing color-blind justice. But if we are going to push broad public policy narratives because of these incidents, then we must also address the broader picture of this culture of violence. And that has nothing to do with the police.” (Ref. 309)

     The legitimate protesters and the unlawful rioters are both doing a major disservice to Blacks. They are turning attention away from the real problems that are hurting all Blacks in America (See Reference 306). They are keeping Blacks and all Americans from solving the real problems of American Blacks. The legitimate protesters are being duped by the racists, the anarchists, the trouble makers, and others who are pursuing their own agendas, which are not in the best interest of America’s Blacks. The legitimate protestors need to open their eyes, engage their dormant brains and work for what is in the best interests of Blacks and America. Protesting against the death of George Floyd is less than futile – it is a distraction and a red herring. Let’s see these legitimate protesters work legitimately to solve the real problems.

     The rioters, looters, and arsonists do much more than a disservice to the cause of Blacks in America. What they are doing certainly does not honor the memory of George Floyd. Perhaps most importantly, it causes justified anger among all law-abiding and peaceful citizens and creates a major impediment to their desire to help alleviate the problems facing Black-Americans.

     Less than a week after the death of George Floyd, reports came in, showing the toll in injuries, deaths and arrests resulting from the ongoing protests and riots.

     “In Indianapolis, police were investigating 'multiple shootings' downtown, including one that left a person dead, amid the protests.
      - - -
     “In Philadelphia, at least 13 officers were injured when peaceful protests turned violent and at least four police vehicles were set on fire.
      - - -
     “In Salt Lake City . . . a police officer was injured after being struck in the head with a baseball bat.
      - - -
     “Back in Minneapolis, the city where the protests began, ‘The situation in Minneapolis is no longer in any way about the murder of George Floyd,’ said Gov. Tim Walz . . . ‘It is about attacking civil society, instilling fear and disrupting our great cities.’
      - - -
     “More than 1,300 people have been arrested in 16 cities since Thursday, including over 500 Friday in Los Angeles.
      - - -
     “Police in St. Louis were investigating the death of a protester who climbed between two trailers of a Fed Ex truck and was killed when it drove away. And a person was killed in the area of protests in downtown Detroit just before midnight after someone fired shots into an SUV, officers said. Police had initially said someone fired into the crowd from an SUV.” (Ref. 307)

     “Two people were killed after ‘multiple shootings’ were reported in downtown Indianapolis Saturday night into early Sunday morning as protests over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis turned into violent riots.”
      - - -
     “Between 11:45 p.m. and 3 a.m., five people were reportedly shot throughout the city, three of whom died. Officials clarified at a news conference Sunday morning that two of the deaths took place downtown after the protests became dangerous for a second straight night in Indianapolis.
     “{The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police chief} confirmed that two people died in the downtown shootings. In addition to those who died, one officer was injured and at least 29 arrests were reported.”       - - -
     “. . . Saturday’s demonstration began peacefully but turned violent as the sun began to set. . . on Friday, at least 30 businesses were damaged and 27 people were arrested during demonstrations that continued through at least 4 a.m.” (Ref. 308)

     “Police have made over 1,000 arrests across 22 U.S. cities since Thursday.
      - - -
     “Police in Richmond, Virginia, are investigating a shooting that took place around 1 a.m. during the overnight protests.
     “A man suffered a life-threatening gunshot wound when the car he was riding in came in contact with a group of protesters.
      - - -
     “Seventeen people were arrested overnight in Washington, D.C., police said. The U.S. Secret Service said it made one arrest overnight after protesters tried to knock over security barriers and vandalized six Secret Service cars.
     “The National Park Service is reporting vandalism to historic sites around the National Mall.
     “The night prior, more than 60 Secret Service personnel were injured from thrown bricks, rocks, bottles and fireworks, officials said.” (Ref. 310)

     And all of this happened by the end of May, less than a week after Floyd’s death. If anything, the situation got even worse at the start of June.

     I started writing about the real problems of American Blacks in 2012 with the suggestion that American society as a whole needed to stop responding to the racists, demagogues, know-nothings, trouble makers, and others who wanted nothing more than to sweep the truths under the rug instead of admitting the real roots of Black problems and then working to solve the problems (Reference 312 and Reference 313). The first step in addressing the problems of American-Blacks is to admit what the real causes of the problems are. This has yet to be done! Some eight years later, as the riots over George Floyd’s death all to clearly demonstrate, Blacks’ problems remain and efforts to get America focused on the real causes and their solutions are apparently as futile as ever. REALITY: Riots don’t solve the problems. Finding scapegoats won’t solve the problems. Ignoring the data and the facts will only make the problems worse.

     Do Black Lives matter? - Most certainly they do!, but no more than any other lives do. Did George Floyd deserve to die? - NO! Did officer Derek Chauvin use excessive force? Maybe – We won’t be sure until all the facts come to light. Was officer Derek Chauvin justified in using excessive force? - Maybe – We won’t know until a thorough investigation is completed. Are the rioters justified in what they did?NO! Is the George Floyd death proof that blacks are being murdered by white policemen? - NO! Are events like the George Floyd death distracting Blacks and gullible Whites from solving the real problems of America’s Blacks? - YES! Is the mayhem perpetrated under the guise of a protest against the killing of a Black by a White police officer setting race relations in America back untold years? A VERY DEFINITE YES!

POSTSCRIPT: On 3 June it was announced that, the “Minnesota Attorney General . . . has upgraded the charge against Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer who knelt on George Floyd's neck for more than eight minutes shortly before Floyd died, to second-degree murder.
     “{The Attorney General} also charged Tou Thao, J. Alexander Kueng and Thomas Lane — the other officers who were at the scene of Floyd's death — with aiding and abetting second-degree murder Wednesday afternoon at a press conference.” (Ref. 316)
