The US is on the brink of civil war: riots span new states


In Minneapolis (Minnesota), riots have been going on for two days due to the murder of George Floyd - an African American died during police detention. Protest demonstrations turned into pogroms, an emergency mode was introduced in the city.


On May 25, police detained Floyd for using forged documents. The police officers handcuffed George and applied a painful technique - one of them pressed his knee on the citizen’s neck. Floyd said that he could not breathe, but this did not affect the tormentor. After a few minutes, the unfortunate passed out. He later died in the hospital.

The police disowned the actions of those who detained Floyd - the police simply fired. This did not suit the public, and people took to the streets.


It all started with demonstrations, but they quickly grew into riots and pogroms of shops, in which several hundred people took part. Unknowns opened fire from military weapons. The newspaper Star Trubune reports the death of one person. The fighters of the US National Guard, as well as the FBI, joined the case.

The riots cover all the new cities and states of the country, and the United States was actually on the brink of civil war. So, in New York detained about 40 participants in mass rallies that broke out after the death of George Floyd. The demonstrators find various piercing and cutting objects. The detentions began after protesters hit a police officer with a box on the head during illegal actions. Four police officers were injured in local hospitals.


According to the American media, the unrest also swept Los Angeles (California), Albuquerque (New Mexico), Denver (Colorado), Louisville (Kentucky).

In Louisville, seven people were injured while shooting during mass rallies due to another case of police lawlessness against black citizens. Protests began in response to the murder in March of 26-year-old Breonna Taylor - she was accused of possession of drugs. Police broke into the woman’s house in search of prohibited substances, but found nothing.

    Civil wars do not arise due to riots and pogroms, but have more fundamental reasons.
    For the United States, such outbreaks of violence are common in the history of the country. Wild morals and low living standards.

      In the United States and for the Civil War, there have long been enough reasons, from racial to economic.

        About a low standard of living - you said that very much. Then in Russia you get a poor standard of living, well, based on your logic.

        1,5 million people who lost their jobs in the US due to the virus applied for unemployment benefits. US law passed to support the economy provides for $ 600 a week

        - I want to ask: how did the "Great and Mighty" support their citizens?
        The average salary of US workers and employees is $ 3 per month, not counting honey. insurance, benefits, etc., and loans at 920% per annum.
        And about the outbreaks of violence - there are not more of them there than in Russia, and maybe even less. Try to go against the actions of the police, for example, in Moscow - you will be packed in five minutes, they will be beaten in the face, and then an article will be sent for possession of drugs (I hope you do not need to give examples).

          Try to go against the actions of the police, for example, in Moscow - you will be packaged in five minutes, they’ll still beat your face

          - And in the USA, in any city, these policemen will simply shoot you or strangle you (example above).

            In the United States, any Negro can quite democratically shoot the head of any cop. In the Russian Federation there is no such democracy (power of the people).

          Vitaly, I understand that you, of course, do not live on the Moon, but also not in America, exactly if you are impressed by the American salary of $ 4000.
          You just can’t imagine that with this money in America itself you can live only very modestly. The dollar in Russia, like you in Ukraine, is greatly overvalued. In Russia, at least once every 6 (!). This means that for 1000 US dollars in terms of their translation into rubles = 70 thousand rubles - a whole family can live a month. That is - drink, eat, pay for housing services, travel by transport, receive education and medical services, etc. And in America itself, $ 1000 is absolutely nothing! and 4000 is nothing. Living in a normal (safe) area, eating normal (not fast food), getting medical care - you need more. America is the bottom.

        In the United States and for the Civil War, there are plenty of reasons

        To send Zakharov there with a bag of cookies - it would be just right now.

        That's right, Sapsan. Not until June 1st marks the 100th anniversary of the bombing of the Cook Klux Klan of Tulsa, in particular the Greenwood area.

    Out of the guise of marauding - no matter how much you praise this America there ... But to be a black man in America, and moreover, strive for this ... As V. Vysotsky sang there -

    Let them try. I'd rather wait ...

    In the most "free" and "democratic" country in the world, the United States is fighting racism. It is necessary to help people fighting for their FREEDOM, at least with finances. smile

    Well, I hope that the United States will suffer the fate of the USSR and the chief officers, as the late Misha Zadornov called them, will stop poking their long nose in foreign countries in general and in Europe in particular!

        Go to the Military Review website, article "Trump threatens to send troops into the rebellious Minneapolis." Several US cities are already very similar to Grozny during the assault by his troops ... Multi-storey buildings on fire ... the fire is blazing to the skies ... This is a war, no matter how you like America, this is a war, and this time on the territory USA.

    What a short memory people have. And pogroms, and shooting in the US flare up regularly. And nothing.
    The last time, as I recall, was after a flood or tornado, before that - more unrest of blacks, before - blackouts ....

    And then the patriots write out - which blacks are terrible and aggressive, then they are directly worried about them.

      Quantity sooner or later turns into quality. Dialectics, however. winked

      This is the law of the transition of quantity into quality - development is carried out by the accumulation of quantitative changes in the subject, which leads to going beyond the limits of the measure and an abrupt transition to a new quality. When overcoming a measure, quantitative changes entail a qualitative transformation.

        Waiting for. As I recall the film "The New York Gang" (about the events of 200 years ago), it’s clear that it’s too long to wait ... PF will not let you wait ...

          If it were not for the increase of 36-38 million unemployed for a couple of months, maybe they would not have waited. And with such an additive, the "crack" of the United States can come in a matter of days.
