That’s hard to watch. The moral compass in America is broken.

This was the best article I've seen about the police murder of Tyre Nichols.

I don’t know if I agree with everything she says. She 100% blames the Memphis attack on white supremacy.

Yeah I would blame it on a culture of invincibility and non accountability among the police, along with cultural stereotypes that cause a lot of authority figures (including black ones) to treat black people as inferior and not deserving of respect.

The cops seem to have shared photos of their beating of Tyre Nichols with their friends.

Pretty sure god stopped listening to Ted Cruz years ago…. Bafoon.

Sad this continues to happen…. There’s such an easy solution to this but god forbid politicians go against their campaign donors.

Simple solution…. Get rid guns, but that will never happen. Make it a licensing process with mental evaluation. You have to register your car every year, this should be no different at the bare minimum for something that causes the kind of damage ARs do. Sure it’s not perfect but it would have stopped the vast majority of the mass shootings over the last several years.

Drives me Batshit crazy that we as a nation even tolerate the GOPs stance on guns.

Yep, the large majority of the country wants this but the lobbyists won't let it happen. Our system is broken.

Meanwhile, Elon seems content to blame mass shootings on trans people.

Fox coverage is heavily blaming the mass shooting on the shooter identifying as transgender.

Wow. Coach Popovich went off after the Spurs' latest game about gun violence. It is a great speech.

Texas governor promises to pardon man convinced of murdering BLM protestor. It also just comes out that the murderer has a bunch of awful racist social media posts.

You gotta love the Judge dunking all over Abbott on that... What an idiot Abbott is. Doesn't anyone verify crap like that before they make such a huge decision as pardoning someone for murder?

Pardoning him pleases his base and that’s a win for him. Does anything else matter?
