"How Much Attention Will The Protests in Berkeley Get?"


  

          

Looks like some UC Berkeley students got a little rowdy out there, breaking windows and whatnot.

http://www.businessinsider.in/Eric-Garner-Protests-Turn-Violent-In-California/articleshow/45404137.cms

Thousands of demonstrators have protested peacefully in New York and elsewhere since the announcement Wednesday that a grand jury declined to indict a white officer in the death of Eric Garner, a black man who gasped "I can't breathe!" while being placed in a chokehold as he was being arrested for selling loose, untaxed cigarettes. The decision closely followed a Ferguson, Missouri, grand jury's choice not to indict a white officer in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed black 18-year-old.
The scope of the demonstrations and the lack of violence were moving to Garner's mother and widow, they said Saturday.

"It is just so awesome to see how the crowds are out there," said Eric Garner's mother, Gwen Carr, who added that she ended up stuck in her car after protests shut down traffic.

"I was just so proud of that crowd," Carr said. "It just warmed my heart."

Garner's widow, Esaw Garner, said she saw demonstrators from her apartment window and told her son, "Look at all the love that your father's getting."

Officers have said the outcry over the grand jury decision has left them feeling betrayed and demonized by everyone from the president and the mayor to throngs of protesters who scream at them on the street.

"Police officers feel like they are being thrown under the bus," said Patrick Lynch, president of the police union.

Garner's family members joined the Rev. Al Sharpton later Saturday as Sharpton laid a wreath at the site on Staten Island where Garner died July 17 in a confrontation that started when police tried to arrest him.

An amateur video seen by millions showed Garner gasping, "I can't breathe" during the fatal encounter.

"All we're concerned about is justice from the police," said Garner's stepfather, Benjamin Carr, who wore a T-shirt with the words, "Enough is enough."

Protests continued in New York City for a fourth day with several dozen people lying down on the floor of Grand Central Terminal and marching into stores in Times Square. There were no reports of arrests.

Protests have also been held in Philadelphia, Chicago, Miami, Las Vegas and a number of other cities.

In Seattle, several hundred people marched downtown to police headquarters Saturday. Authorities said a group then split off from the main protest and tried to get onto a roadway. Police say some protesters threw rocks at officers who blocked them from entering it. Seven were arrested.

Sharpton announced plans this week for a march in Washington, D.C., next Saturday to protest the killings of Garner, Brown and others and to press for change at the federal level.

I find it ironic in the highest that people are legitimately more pissed off about property damage and theft then literally state sanctioned murder.

Kinda crazy.

But if breaking windows, throwing rocks and stealing goods aka "rioting" brings more sustained attention by civilians, police and govt to this issue...then riot, white people, riot


does it really matter?

It's counter productive and unnecessary , the peaceful protests are getting a lot of attention

They hurt people who are innocent and may even support the protestors ideals

If you want to break shit, break police shit or the courthouse shit

Attack the real enemy

dude

I wouldn't like being exposed to the germs, but would understand that the underlying issue is the cold not the cough.

But the way to treat a cold is not by coughing on people and if you care about others you will be careful not to cough on others so they won't catch the cold.

If you want things to get better you've got to build not tear down, especially when you tear down things not related to what you are fighting.

But it happens and when it does it makes more sense to look at the cause. And yes-- sometimes building up does mean something must be torn down. There can't be another Solomon's temple if the Dome of the rock isn't first removed, but I digress.

It's not about being good or bad it's about what's most effective

Just trying to have some dialogue realizing that I'm not right about everything but most can't comprehend that just because some wants to express a different view that doesn't mean he doesn't want the same change.

dude
