  1. There is a reason you don't see police involved with the looting. It is a power move deliberately executed by the police themselves. We saw the same thing in the '92 LA riots among other historical events.

    Francesco Cossiga in 2008:
    “Maroni should do what I did when I was Minister of the Interior. University students? Let them do what they want. Withdraw the police from streets and universities, infiltrate the movement with provoking agents ready for anything and let them devastate shops, put fire to the cars and put cities to the sword for ten days.

    Then, strengthen by people’s support, the sound of the sirens from ambulances will have to overwhelm that from the police and carabinieri [italian military police]. Law enforcement officers should pitilessly beat the shit out of protesters and send them all to the hospital. They should not arrest them since the courts would free them immediately, but they should beat them savagely, and they should beat savagely as well those teachers that incites them: not old professors, just the young school teachers.”

    It should be no surprise that there are an abundant number of police addressing the protests while simultaneously ignoring the looting. It is a strategic decision to deliberately allow violence, thus justifying the need to use violence. We need to look beyond our localized perception to see reality for what it is.

  2. So history of events goes as follows according to him.
    Cops have been bullies to the black community.
    The people have been in covid lockdown and losing jobs.
    Minnesota cops muder Floyd in broad daylight in front of pleading citizens.
    It sparks up worldwide protests and anger.
    Dozens of people pass the tipping point into anger and burn down the police precinct and begin to loot.
    Police who have been bullies continue their shady behaviour in allowing unrest.
    The anger boils over and some people turn into oppurtunists.
    Some people start to violently riot against by standers.
    And police during this time, are shooting rubber bullets into some peaceful protesters and not arresting the violent ones.
    As the man said, because there is only a handful of good cops, not many as the perception is. Thats why things went down like that.

  3. Where do you find these people? You're like the one who looks for the one with the Jheri curl and a gold grill for teeth to interview. Congratulations cuz all I see is you doing what mainstream media does: Interviewing THE ONE who some how represents the masses (whilst you get to be a lone wolf and an exception to the rule). I dare you to interview THE REAL STREET. Yes. Thumbs down on this video.

  4. I am very disappointed that the American "left" did not fight for the survival of poor and working class people who were put between a Rock and a hard place with the government's awful response to Covid19.  This is a terrible miscalculation that will have lasting consequences.

  5. mike i hope u r giving some of these ppl money for the interview. I mean if you can pay someone to debate u , you can also pay some of these ppl u r interviewing.

  6. This aligns with under reported news about rioters & looters who know that the police have been told to stand down.. same as Minneapolis, NYC,…

  7. This dude is awesome. He's honest and has a great sense of humor even dealing with the riots in his community. Thanks again Michael for doing these interviews.

  8. These are great, Michael. It's actually very useful to get a – man on the street – perspective from someone who lives there and who is not so over-saturated with news that they can form their own genuine opinions, very easily.

  9. Thank you for reporting from the streets! Normal people share important & valuable nuances the corporate press fail to convey. These simple candid interviews will have great historical worth to those objectively studying this period in time.

  10. Dr. Michael Wood, a retired marine, a retired Baltimore officer talked about how these businesses burned raise the insurance rates and push these communities back decades. This is evil! Absolutely cruel! Edit: wrote this before you mentioned the insurance rates BTW.

  11. This is attack on Western Culture and minority communities are the first victims. The media gaslights the USA because it doesn't advance the "narrative"!

  12. I read your full article on this topic, and want to thank you for being a REAL JOURNALIST and actually finding your own information, instead of simply adding to the echo chamber like the media. If news networks did more ON-THE-STREET interviews like this one instead of "opinion" panels endlessly agreeing with each other, they might actually be trusted by more Americans!
