Something went wrong. It started last night. The post I published does not promote disorder. When I read it this morning, the post had been altered. One cannot set buildings ablaze and otherwise destroy property.
As you know, there are thugs. Plain thugs. For them, a demonstration is an opportunity to destroy property. They may join the demonstration and distort the message. One will not see the truck that is driven into the demonstrators and may not want to remember that people are protesting the murder of an African-American.
If a demonstration is violent, people may not remember an unjust death and police brutality. They will instead remember the disorder and the destruction it led to, and the protesters will be looked upon as criminals. President Trump will send in the National Guards. Beware of thugs.
The protest in Montreal has been ruled illegal. Covid-19 precludes large gatherings, however peaceful.
Yes, Canada grieves, but it grieves the brutal death of George Floyd, whose murderer was a policeman.
I must have my computer examined. There are hackers.
Love to everyone 💕
