I too was an first an eye witness, then a soldier patrolling the streets of LA in 1992. One would think we would learn from the past BUT are our youth even being taught the lessons from history?
From nighttime curfews in Los Angeles to military Humvees encircling the White House, the United States appears to be a country on fire 10 days after a Minneapolis police officer appeared to kill George Floyd, an unarmed black man, during an arrest.
The family of Floyd, after witnessing a weekend of both peaceful protests and lawless rioting, stood at a makeshift memorial June 1 where Floyd lay on the ground with the officer’s knee on his neck.
“It’s okay to be angry,” Terrence Floyd told ABC News, “but channel your anger to do something positive or make a change another way because we’ve been down this road already.”
