Police acting like thugs isn't going to solve anything

Last week police officers in Minneapolis, Minnesota killed George Floyd after he was put under arrest for using a counterfeit twenty dollar bill. After that incident mass protests began to erupt all over the country. At this point many people have been pushed to the edge as we see mass unemployment and probably many people suffering from cabin fever from the pandemic leading to some riots and looting. I'll say nobody should be violent for no reason unless you have to protect yourself, your rights and freedoms then you have to do what you have to do. Sadly what we are seeing from many cops around this country just like with George Floyd they are taking things too far and it makes me think they either don't understand how we got here or they don't care. Acting like thugs and attacking people indiscriminately isn't going to solve anything and only throw gas onto the flame.
