  1. Hmm…no riots over this tho
    But if they was white…..

  2. Psalms 60:12 “For help in man is useless. through The Most High we will do valiantly, for it is He who shall tread down our enemies”

    Protesting does absolutely nothing! it’s been proven. why are we seeking help from the very nation (and others) that hates us? They don’t care about us Wake up my royal black people, we are chosen. return to your culture as the real Hebrews & let go of this system (Revelation 3:9)

  3. Far left always keep label this ( peaceful protesters) when the attack civilians there domestic terrorists

  4. No acts of violence in Memphis Tennessee because everybody on that bridge is armed. You break somebody's car windshield you're going to get f**** shot in the face. Love my city

  5. That looks like a sad protest. Looks almost orchestrated. I live on the stateline of Memphis and let me tell you, these people look a little too calm to be from here. Nice attempt to get people to act like the George Floyd case, which was also planned and set up. Come on people, see through it.

  6. I’m very surprised that BLM isn’t leading the charge on this in the same way they did, very effectively, when George Floyd was murdered by police. This video and incident, though certainly not worse in the end result for either innocent victim, was far more brutal and prolonged then the Floyd video. Not that either is easy watch, particularly knowing someone looses their lives so senselessly but this was especially difficult.
    I would think that BLM would have much more of a leadership role in the response to this. Their press releases are only 15% of what they were during the Floyd murder (I checked) and their media presence, while there, is also much more muted.
    Can’t imagine what makes this any different then the George Floyd murder in the eyes of BLM??🤔 oh wait…. No, that can’t it

  7. Defund every police department

  8. Blocking people on bridges, actually holding them hostage and incarcerated in their cars is not peaceful. Those cars can't back up or go forward that is actually incarcerating someone and that is violent. Those people are not free to leave and r forced to stay there.

  9. You block a road, you get hit. Don't expect me to stop for a speed bump

  10. Yes, very very large pickup trucksliol

  11. I myself was resurrected after a protest blocked traffic. It really works, no one should ever mock protests

  12. The name of the WHITE police officer is Preston Hemphill who tased Tyre Nichols SEVERAL TIMES. HE OUGHT TO BE FIRED AND CHARGED. LET HIM PROVE HIM INNOCENCE IN COURT!!

  13. I wish those Protesters should be BANNED for Blocking Traffic. Roads are for cars not people

  14. Media continues to encourage

  15. Those are 18 wheelers not large pick up trucks m

  16. P.S. that crowd of protesters on the bridge is 30% protest 70% press— Ask yourself why the national news media is already flying in from all over to cover a small group in Memphis…. You don’t think all the coverage will generate outrage and more people in the streets do you?? They’re not deliberately trying to start chaos on the streets of an American city are they? They’re reporting this particular story in this particular way because they care about us and want us to be safe and informed right? Okay Good.

  17. They will tire them selfs out lol

  18. Violent cops bring out violent protesters. Makes sense?

  19. Those aren't " pickup trucks" , Sorry. Justice for Tyre 🇨🇦

  20. Protest in peace. Shut the bridge down but no violence.
