Buck King Why not do some good improving your neighborhood and the people who live there. Seems like that would be a more productive use of time and energy.

If you can’t wait until this weekend to go protest, there’s a protest tonight. It’s led by the same guy who tried to light a Confederate flag on fire at the state capitol when the flaggers were protesting the monument removal in New Orleans yesterday.

These people are not protesting for justice. Justice actually means an impartial search for the truth. To all of these people protesting, the police officers who killed Alton Sterling are guilty of something. It doesn’t enter their mind that he may have been at fault.

These people were going to carry on and protest if the investigation didn’t go their way. That’s their right, but let’s just hope it stays peaceful this weekend.
