Ever hear of a citizen's arrest?  If I see someone committing a crime, it is legal for me to detain them til the authorities get there.  If he fires upon me, he would be charged with assault with a deadly weapon if I survived or murder if I died.  There is no self-defense for people breaking the law in the first place.

No, it's not that straightforward. 

Citizen's arrest law varies by state. In some states, you're only allowed to detain someone under very specific circumstances. 

And it varies state by state by how you're allowed to go about doing that.

>There is no self-defense for people breaking the law in the first place.

Except there is.

Oh, don't justify it, just minimize the millions in damages the riots caused.  As well as the people who lost their lives during them.  And yes, let's just let rioters do whatever they want.  Who cares if those people actually had insurance.  Or how long it takes to get government aid, which we all pay for, including those with their houses and businesses destroyed.  Or how long and expensive civil will be.  This is not to mention the emotional and physical strain it must put on those people watching everything in their lives burn to the ground.  Who cares because we may hurt the ittle rioter scum.  Like I said, no empathy for decent citizens.  Just excuses and looking the other way for criminals.

Yea, it is about statistics.  And white people are far more likely to be shot by police officers than blacks.  Interesting since blacks make up around 50% of the violent crime.  Of course, that doesn't even take into account how many of ones that we actually get worked up about end up being justified shootings.  But, do people follow up on that.  Nope, just slap all the faces of unrepentant criminals on shirts and deify them like they are all equal.  Personally, that really dishonors the ones that weren't justified.

>And white people are far more likely to be shot by police officers than blacks. 

False.

> Interesting since blacks make up around 50% of the violent crime.

Correction, black people get convicted for 50% of the violent crime. Black people are more likely to be wrongfully convicted of crimes.

Tell me you're easily duped without telling me you're easily duped. 

I love what fools the Left and media has made themselves out to be.  A massive troll job by 4chan, who bet they could get the Left to believe that anything was racist, including the internationally known OK hand sign, and won that bet just because it was something Trump does when he talks.  Talk about TDS.  The best part?  Instead of acknowledging they got had, they kept going along with it.  Now, EVERYONE is a White Supremacist.  Oh God, it's so fucking good. 

I guess Biden is a massive White Supremacist, too.

1.) "Racists pretended it meant something racist to trick the left"

That's literally how all symbolism, and how every word works. Something starts getting used a certain way, and people start to associate it with that way.


You're basically saying "Haha, leftists understand how language works"

  

2.) The intention of dog whistles is that they are supposed to appear innocuous. There are many symbols that racists started using because they were positive symbols.  

You got those leftists, by calling out that they figured out who was racist because racists wanted to troll leftists.
