Over the weekend on MSNBC a guest on AM Joy praised the looters and said that retail stores like Target deserve to be targeted. He claimed that looters got a “bad name” during the George Floyd riots.
“You have a store called Target, you’re going to be a target… These retail places have contributed to the oppression of our people.”

I wonder what this man would say about the protestors that shot an 8-year-old girl over the weekend for passing a barrier?
Even the mayor of Atlanta, Keisha Lance Bottoms called out protestors and said, “you can’t blame this on a police officer.”
“We’ve talked a lot about what we are demanding from our officers in our communities,” Bottoms said. “We’ve protested, we’ve demonstrated, we’ve been angry, we’ve cried, we’ve demanded action. Well now we’re demanding action for Secoriea Turner and for all the other people who were shot in Atlanta last night and over the past few weeks, because the reality is this: These aren’t police officers shooting people on the streets of Atlanta, these are members of the community shooting each other, and in this case, it is the worst possible outcome.”
“You can’t blame this on a police officer, you can’t say this is about criminal justice reform,” said Bottoms. “This is about some people carrying some weapons who shot up a car with an 8-year-old baby in the car. We got to stop this. We are doing more harm than any police officer on this force.”
