Hi

VegasSteve

It stopped being about Floyd when opportunists with their own agendas took advantage of the incident. Business owners have a right to protect their goods and property, just as the businesses did in LA during Rodney King. During this time if you steal, damage property, or assault officers and innocent bystanders,.then you're a criminal.

These people are uninformed idiots. The cop has been in custody since yesterday morning, charged with murder. He'll go to prison.

Do a peaceful protest all you want. That is your right under the 1nd Amendment of our constitution. But if you start to riot here by looting, burning, hurting or kiIIing people. The kid gloves comes off! For many Nevadians have firearms and now how to use them.... and we will if you riot in our neighborhood.

Nevermore

These anarchists all need to be sent to Venezuela for a while or maybe forever. You never appreciate anything until you lose it.

Sleazy will only jail business owners for political purposes.

Hippocratic of Democracy. No gatherings of 50 or more Governor Sisolak orders. Sisolak followers get to do what they want right in front of your eyes.
