Maybe George Floyd is the spark lighting up pent-up rage simmering beneath the veneer of America.

According to the Denver Post:
Gov. John Hickenlooper was in his office at the Capitol at the time, but he said: “To my knowledge … it had nothing to do with me.” The governor speculated that the shooting stemmed from a drug deal, but police have not commented about a possible motive.
Also a bunch of shots were fired and so far I haven’t seen anything about anyone being hit. So far, it doesn’t sound political, anyway.

Meanwhile in Louisville 7 people were shot as protestors tried to overturn a police car.
Police spokesman say no police fired their guns.

People have had enough of this bullshit. The massive economic disparity, the authoritarian government, the militarized police Depts., the murderous police who are never held accountable, depression Era unemployment and the overall CLASS inequality across the board.
TIME’S UP. Enough is enough.
