    Editor’s Comment: The disturbing riots and “protests” in Charlotte underscore a larger spiral into chaos. While many of the protests over police shootings have raised attention to the inherent hypocrisies and devaluing of lives, this time, there is no basis, reason or sound justification.

    This is a population that has been pushed to the brink and intent on having violence for violence sake. Unfortunately, it is a pattern that has been spreading. Before long, it will overshadow the legitimate grievances and any positive results of protest action, and instead push the country to the point of widespread civil unrest and racially-motivated attacks. This will not help reform police, or promote social justice; it will justify a police state and handily distract from the coming collapse.

    A Second Night Of Riots Rocks Charlotte As America Teeters On The Edge Of Chaos

    by Michael Snyder

    Rioting and civil unrest are becoming a common occurrence in America. The city of Charlotte has been hit by a second night of violence even though authorities are desperately pleading for calm. What sparked the chaos in Charlotte was the shooting of a 43-year-old black man named Keith Lamont Scott. It appears that he was armed when he was shot, and the police officer that shot him was also black, but those facts have done little to ease the fury of the protesters. On Tuesday night 16 police officers were injured by rioters, including one that was hit in the face by a rock. Hopefully there will be fewer casualties by the time the violence on Wednesday night is over.

    So far things don’t look good though. The following is how USA Today is describing the violence that we have witnessed so far on Wednesday night…

    A second night of dramatic protests gripped this North Carolina city Wednesday night, one day after a police-involved shooting of an African-American man led to angry demonstrations, smashed windows and trucks set ablaze.

    Protesters beat against a police van and broke a window of the City Smoke barbecue restaurant and bar downtown. Some yelled “hands up, don’t shoot.” Police tossed out smoke bombs. Protesters running outside of the Omni Charlotte Hotel said someone had been shot but that could not immediately be confirmed Wednesday night.

    Later on it was confirmed that someone indeed was shot. In fact, local news is reporting that there is a pool of blood on the ground

    At least one person was injured in the confrontation, though it wasn’t immediately clear how.

    They shot him,” one witness told WBTV. “They tried to cover up his blood.”

    Firefighters rushed in to pull the man to a waiting ambulance.

    Officers on bicycles surrounded a pool of blood on the ground and a few people threw bottles and clods of dirt at police.

    Of course this follows an extremely tense night of violence and chaos that made headlines all over the globe. Just hours after Keith Lamont Scott was shot, hundreds of very angry protesters descended on downtown Charlotte

    Several hundred people blocked streets well after midnight, despite the use of tear gas by police in riot gear. Clouds of tear gas drifted over the crowd, and people coughed and fell back before walking toward police lines again multiple times.

    They held signs that said “Stop Killing Us” and “Black Lives Matter,” and they chanted “No justice, no peace.” One sign read: “IT WAS A BOOK.”

    The scene was sometimes chaotic and tense, with water bottles and stones thrown at police lines, but many protesters called for peace and implored their fellow demonstrators not to act violently.

    In addition to 16 police officers being injured, there were reports that rioters were hurling “rocks, bottles and traffic cones off interstate overpasses”. A number of vehicles were hit, and injuries were reported.

    This kind of mindless violence makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Those drivers had nothing to do with the shooting, but an object thrown at a vehicle from an overpass can literally kill someone.

    How would killing a totally innocent person bring justice for Keith Lamont Scott?

    Sadly, this is what happens when riots start. They all too often spin wildly out of control.

    In addition to everything else, one group of protesters decided that it would be a really good idea to loot a Wal-Mart

    Protesters headed to the Walmart on N. Tryon in the University area after shutting down Interstate-85 at WT Harris Blvd. early Wednesday morning following the shooting death of 43-year-old Keith Lamont Scott.

    Officers in riot gear blocked the entry to Walmart after it was broken into. Employees could be seen sweeping up shattered glass at the front entrance.

    One employee told FOX 46 Charlotte some technology was stolen including, a flat screen television and iPads.

    Once again, stealing televisions and iPads is not going to do anything to bring justice for Keith Lamont Scott. There are always people that see chaos as an opportunity to take advantage of others, and this is yet another example. We live in a society that is an advanced state of moral decay, and situations like this bring it to the surface.

    What is truly unfortunate is that it sounds like the police actually followed correct procedure in this case. According to Police Chief Kerr Putney, Keith Lamont Scott was armed and refused to drop his weapon after repeated demands to do so…

    Police Chief Kerr Putney said during a news conference that officers were searching for a suspect Tuesday when they saw Scott exit a vehicle with a handgun at an apartment complex on the city’s northeast side. “The officers gave loud, clear verbal commands which were also heard by many of the witnesses. They were instructing the subject, once he got out of the vehicle, to drop the weapon… Mr. Scott exited his vehicle armed with a handgun as the officers continued to yell at him to drop it.”

    Unfortunately, we have gotten to a point where a riot is almost expected every time an African-American male is shot by police in this country. I think that Rush Limbaugh put it very well on his radio show…

    It’s a sad observation, folks. I’m telling you, a sad, sad observation but it’s an observation that I don’t think I’m alone in making. It seems like rioting is almost expected now when there is a cop shooting. A cop shooting, period. Don’t care about the details. It seems like it’s now axiomatic that there’s going to be rioting or massive public protests or threats of rioting or threats of unrest every time the cops have to draw their weapons.

    Without a doubt, police brutality in the United States is out of control, and this is something that I have been writing about for a very long time.

    But rioting, looting and violence are not going to solve anything.

    We desperately need to learn how to love one another, and we desperately need to come together as a nation to work on finding some solutions.

    Instead, America is becoming increasingly divided, and anger and frustration are rising to unprecedented levels.

    And if we are witnessing this much chaos now, while things are still relatively stable, what are things going to look like once economic conditions get really bad?

    Our society is literally coming apart at the seams, and the chaos and the violence are going to get much worse than this. We wanted to push God out of every aspect of public life, and now we are beginning to see what that looks like.

        • Satori, I did post some info on the red light camera article and as of 1:00pm today, no problems up in the mts..
          Nice being REMOTE.

          • good to hear

            leave the porch light on for me !

        • Fucking spics.

          • Fucking cracker!

          • Braveheart – “spic(k) = Spanish/American person – defined as extremely offensive.”

            You’ve admitted that your (late) wife was Spanish/American. How do you equate your stance with once being married to a spic?

      2. Before the Lenin Communists took over Imperial Czarist Russia there was violence by the Imperial Troops against the starving peasants. Therefore; In order for Communism/Socialism/Islamism can continue to grow in the United States and destroy the last place on earth for the Middle-Class, thugs will continue to assault law and order police until the police shoot back and help the Soros funded Thugs destroy the last dwindling place for the Middle-Class.

        • A than as iOS1:

          I have a dollar to put toward a hit on Soros. Since the entire government is owned by these J*ws, the only way to deal with them is to do it ourselves.

          Perhaps I could get a job on a suicide hotline. If you want to die, why not take the likes of Soros and the rest of the J*w billionaires with you. These creeps don’t deserve a fair trial. No nonJ*w ever gets a fair trial in the J*w dish all system.


          • I suppose I should say the above comment is sarcasm. I am a law abiding citizen. I never intentionally break laws. Unfortunately under this oppressive system one must be very careful not to say anything that can be used against one in a court of law. Hell, they seriously want to make it a crime to hurt someone’s feelings like it is in Europe. In Europe if you say that absolutely no J*w ever died in any gas chamber anywhere except in the United States, which is true, you go to jail. “The truth is no defense”.!


            • B from CA – “No J*w ever died in any gas chamber?” Where are your citations? Where is your proof? Where is your truth?

              If you can prove, conclusively, that such a statement is historically irrefutable and from reputable and unimpeachable sources cite them. Otherwise, shut up.

              You NAZI sympathizers are totally deluded.

              • B from CA – I’ll offer you a similar challenge that I gave to Frank Thoughts (another idiot,like you).

                If you can prove, conclusively, and without a shadow of doubt, that “no J*w ever died in any gas chamber” I’ll donate 2,000 dollars to your favorite charity. Are you up for the challenge? Are you willing? It will not cost you a cent neither!

                However, I suspect, that just like Frankie Thoughts you’re simply another windbag. He didn’t accept my challenge either!

        • I cannot understand Soros = communism in america; communism equals to abolishing money, private property of means of production, man exploitation by other men, religion as a state ideology. Exactly THE OPPOSITE of we can testify in America today. Fascist state capitalists in soviet union killed all the bolsheviks, one by one.

          We could say that fascism will surely take place of democracy when capitalism will experience a tragic, general, synchronized crisis (we’re absolutely not at this point, because there is today a big growth in asia and africa, for example), but capitalistic bourgeoise will choose this way exactly for the opposite motivation of yours, because they will fear that spontaneous and organized communists can seize the power and abolish war and capitalism by revolution!

          • Then You don’t know what fascism is and how it helps it’s people as in Italy and Spain

        • @Athanasios1

      3. Martin Luther King had a dream for blacks. It turned into a nightmare. That was 53 years ago.

        Abraham Lincoln had a dream too. He suggested that American Africans’ best option was to go back to Africa (but sending blacks to Central America was cheaper). That was 153 years ago.

        • No…………. MLK’s speech was pure socialism: “….I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exhalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight,….” . Read the damned thing. He advocated for the ‘free sh*t army’. He had no plans other than to take from those who’d worked for what they had in order to give to those who did not. I’m sick and tired of false attributions to that communist. Study before your post, please. In that partial quote – it is evident that he ‘dreamed’ that all would be ‘equal’ simply due being alive at the same time. Not from effort, perseverance, self-control or sacrifice (unless it was those who had sacrificing to and for those who did not have). He assigned prejudice as being the sole property of the races that worked; not a bit towards his own racial heritage. We are now seeing his ‘dream’ all right. A “F”in nightmare.

        • I can remember what old Abe said when he came off that three day drunk, ” I freed who ? “.

        • being Cheeper was Not the Real issue/reason.

          The Real reason was that lincoln Did first try to get African Kings and Tribal Leaders to agree to a return of the freed slaves once freed.

          but even after he offered Cash Bribes, cash payments to cover costs etc etc…Every African tribe leader and king told Lincoln “NO!!” as in “no thanks! we do NOT desire a return of them negroes to africa again period.”

          Even their OWN kind do NOT want them!!!!!

          And every weekend of negroe ife and death in most every major size usa city, with plenty of medium sized cities also included, Savage Violent Deadly Animalistic niggers Proves it by shooting and knifing and mass killing their OWN kind. Whenever they cannot find any Whiteys to rape and murder!

          And yet, not a single mention of it from BLM leftist kommies Nor by any major msm’s.

          Same as how no mention made of how more whites get killed by cops than blacks does on a Daily basis across the nation.

          If George Soros was ANYTHING other than jewish?..The FBI or CIA or some other of 150 fed agency orgs would have arrested soros and Jailed him Long Ago.

          I 100% guarentee you that, if by some chance a White guy like David Duke was able to come up with and Donate $50-Million Cash to Whitey Orgs, or to the KKK org or any such white organisation so to foment the Exact same type stuff we see Blacks doing, and mexican illeagles doing.

          Then FBI and State SWAT cop teams would Pounce all over Duke within the first 12 hrs of his offering the cash publically.

          So many folks whine and worry about fox tv generated sharia law any day now in usa fear tactics, yet they totally ignore it by a factor of 100% ignoring of it, the Fact that for over 100 yrs now america Has already Been hyjacked fully and by jewdeokommie bolsheviks on the Left, with right wing neocon ziojewry assisting it all.

          And at days end…Every day…Day in Day out..It matters Not if its leftist bolshevik jewdeokommies or neocon rightwing ziojewry at the Helm of fed govnt and every form MSM medias…Because at days end they are all, and always were and always shall be and remain as the Khazarjewry International Problem number One period.

          This would be well known far and wide in usa if not for the scofield factor eh. Nothing else has so deluded so many multi millions of otherwise smart normal american folks. But due to that factor we instead have all those deluded manys worshipping and defending unquestionably the very tribe of International Nation Wreckers.

          This was never before a problem in haveing folks awake and aware of it all untill around 1903 when that scofield version first arrived for sale upon usa shores. Paid for and Published by a Rothschild Grandson! Gee think He had any influences in what all those apostate false interpretations would read like? Or the troubles it would cause for americans? you can Bet he sure did know in advance what would happen!

      4. Do you really give a shit? I don’t anymore.

        Instead of a peaceful protest, it becomes a means to loot and destroy property.

      5. NC?

        The Turds are at it again. Burn it down and make the Middle Class to rebuild it for them, because we owe it to them. (NOT).

        I say let the owners protect their properties, and this B.S. will end very fast.

        I see the Turds are shooting other Turds. Karmas a Bi@#H.

        The Guard is being called in and now that they are bring guns. I hope their mags are loaded.

        NC? Stand your ground, FIGHT. All Lives Matter, and your Live matters the most!!!


      6. I find it interesting that the HB2 bill (transgender rights) that is such a controversy in North Carolina was actually started in Charlotte by their democrat lady mayor. Maybe it didn’t take too long for the good Lord to bring a bit of justice on the city. Can you imagine this happening across the entire nation if we elect the wrong person for president.
        We had all better start praying for our nation.

      7. If you get caught up in the riots, just run as fast as you can to the nearest book store or employment agency. They won’t follow you there!!

      8. Race War is coming Sooner or later. Like it or not , ready or not. sooner or later all hell will break loose.

        • it doesn’t HAVE to be this way…if they would start PROSECUTING the BAD cops, who are caught red-handed, on video, assaulting citizens for no GOOD REASON, then we would return back to civility…google cop beats citizen, or cop kills citizen, and you can watch for DAYS, cops beating/killing/stealing….we don’t torture in america….that’s what i grew up hearing…but now it’s obvious that we DO. …but all that ever happens to them is they get a paid vacation, while the guys that DID IT investigate the “crime”….if these chimps had a good leader, they would REALLY protest when it’s irrefutable that there was wrong-doing….and get the bad cop sent to prison…but they keep trying to defend the wrong guys, the ones that DESERVE to be shot…make no mistake, some of these deaths DESERVE to have riots, but not THIS one, it would SEEM.

          • BCOD, although you make some good points about bad cops, THERE IS NO JUSTIFICATION FOR RIOTING, EVER! Nobody deserves to get their home or business attacked, looted, burned down, etc. This affair in Charlotte is not even the kind of case you mention. That stupid boy came out of his car with a gun in his hand approaching the police. The police didn’t approach him. He was given several opportunities to drop the gun and survive his encounter with the police. He screwed up and paid the ultimate price. I know if someone approaches me with a gun in hand, I’ll give him only ONE chance to drop that weapon, turn around, and walk or run away from me. If he’ll do that, he’ll be alright. If not, then he’s history. What do you expect when you go around having bad intentions toward other people? You play with fire, you’re going to get burned. Facts of life.

            • well, i’m gonna disagree with you on THIS one, bravheart. when the cops are killing innocent citizens, and getting away with literal MURDER, then riots are REQUIRED….but it seems the chimps NEVER riot for the right guy/reason….hence the last line in my previous statement….i could find you DOZENS of times where cops are guilty as sin, right there on video, and it’s ALWAYS “he was just following standard proceedures”….remember dorner in L.A. and the dumb sons o bitches that shot up that pickup with two people delivering newspapers?….wonder what happened to THEM?

              • BCOD, I’ll offer you a deal. If it’s PROVEN that they shot this man with NO legitimate basis, I’ll join you in calling for them to get punished. the investigation is still ongoing last time I checked. But I still stand by what I said on the riots. WHEN IS IT REQUIRED FOR OTHER PEOPLE WHO AREN’T EVEN INVOLVED IN THE DISPUTE TO LOSE THEIR HOMES OR BUSINESSES? I hate to say this but I think you’re getting misled by some of the MSM reporting on this whole affair. These monkeys always look for any excuse to riot, loot, attack, kill, etc. If that black man had been killed by another black man, none of this would even be happening. The MSM NEVER focuses on black-on-black crime EVER. The cops were supposedly looking for someone else on an outstanding warrant when they came across this guy. Think about it. Why would the guy get out of his car WITH A GUN and approach the cops? Those cops have just as much right to self-defense as any of us do. BCOD, I love your posts and I hate to have any dispute with you, but you’re starting to sound like one of those bleeding hearts. I believe you need to re-think this whole thing, sincerely. Take care.

                • like i said before………….not in this case should the cops get punished…it LOOKS like they were justified….you didn’t READ my post very well….all i’m saying is that i see LOTS of video out there PROVING cops are bad….and they never get prison time……we aint got no beef.

          • Cops aren’t the issue
            Black crime out of control, is

            • you probly never considered the fact that cops are caught LYING all the time….hell, it’s LEGAL for them to lie to citizens.

            • Correct..the cops can’t win. They cry because everyone and everything is racist..when they don’t come to their rescue they cry because they’re racist?
              Blacks ARE the problem. You can’t have it both ways.

      9. Nothing discredits mass political disorder more than looting. A protest that morphs into a riot, regardless of its illegality, can draw positive attention if the underlying cause was immoral on a great scale. Rosa Parks with Bull Conners response swayed public support for her cause. Once looting occurs, the politics, however just, is tainted. The “I’m stealing this TV set in the name of Rodney King”, of about 25 years ago and the more current situations are examples. Attacking reporters is even more counter productive.

      10. Kevin2, good points. These savages don’t have a leg to stand on. Start shooting enough of them and it will come to an end.

        • Braveheart1776

          One must be very careful when the State uses lethal force, in masse, upon its citizens. Its use needs to very carefully monitored for 100% lawful justification or else, like the rioters, it politically backfires.

          • Kevin2, OK, you make a valid point there, but I still stand by what I say about rioting in general. The black community just couldn’t wait for the investigation to get completed, to let the process work. NOTHING OUT THERE JUSTIFIES MAKING INNOCENT PEOPLE SUFFER JUST BECAUSE THERE’S SOME DISPUTE BETWEEN A HANDFUL OF OTHER PEOPLE. I don’t understand BCOD saying ‘rioting is required’ against society in general. Now if you have a dispute with someone, Ok do what needs to be done to get the dispute settled peacefully, if possible, BUT IT’S WRONG TO TARGET ANYONE ELSE WHO’S NOT INVOLVED IN THE DISPUTE. THERE’S NO WAY THAT CAN BE JUSTIFIED. When you target someone for any reason that is a damned serious thing. You’re talking about someone else’s life here. You’ve got to be able to show a legitimate basis for your action. If you can’t do so, you’re going to be held accountable for said action and be punished for it. You need to think very long and very carefully before you do anything. Kevin2, I love your posts also and I hate to have any dispute with you, but I’m sticking to my guns on this issue. I’d still be willing to stand in the trenches with you and BCOD. Take care.

          • Kevin2: yes and thats why they need to use Missles and Bunker Buster Bombs in major ghettos across america landscape.

      11. Now how wrong would it be to rob the looters?? Might as well take your place at the top of the food chain…

        • Stealing stolen goods is a criminal act and has a convoluted discredited justification no better than the political rioter that uses the situation as an opportunity for theft. Its quite simple, “You don’t take what isn’t yours”. There is no wiggle room.

      12. Get ready hell coming to breakfast bring your Vicks.

      13. Black policeman shoots a armed black man with a gun and a prior history of crimes and this causes a chimp out. Time for a shoot to kill order for the National Guard. Time to jail those left over.

      14. Investigate Soros, he is financing BLM who are stoking these fires into riots. Follow the money!

      15. Those that think they own us
        Seek to keep us at each other’s throats
        Rather than united around theirs.

      16. Will be driving through charlotte in a couple of hours going home to western NC. Rioters and looters take notice, if you get in front of my truck, I will run over you. If you try to get in my truck, ill shoot you in the face. Guess which vehicle is mine.

      17. If you live in a city, you may have 5 minutes to realize that the rioters and looters are approaching, and maybe 20 seconds once you realize they are coming to your door. Better know what to do!

        • Norseman,I know what to do,hide out in the local employment agancy,all will be fine!

      18. Time for flame throwers, fragmentation grenades, nerve gas,choppers with vulcan miniguns, phosgene gas……

      19. Well if the white greedy debt slaves that cannot understand blacks standing up for themselves when the cops are allowed to kill them at will then they are going to be fucked if the blacks along with many whites turn on them because they not only didn’t have the balls to do anything over 9/11 but they don’t even have the balls to do anything when the cops are killing whites.

        Yeah just so you know I am from the right but that does not make me stupid or a chicken because I can see what is going on here and will be making a V-Line for the bankers and there bitches if shit kicks off.
