Are the George Floyd protesters wrong the way they going about protesting ??

I don't see George Floyd family out there destroying, attacking, burning , getting maxed, shot.  Far as I know they asked everyone to honor his memory and protest peacefully.  You destroy stuff hurt others who had nothing to do with it, then money and time is wasted cleaning up, fixing everything.  Bad enough with this Coronavirus stuff going on now this crap.  The officers were fired , can't people give it time to see what else happens to them.  All this fooliness is not going to bring George back and doubt he would want to be remembered this way or people to act like this.  I think his daughters are having a hard enough time as it is.

    The protests are no longer about the hapless dead guy, its all to do with criminality now riots and  looting.

    It has become about way more than George Floyd. It has become about racism against blacks in America of which Floyd's murder by police is just one example of thousands. And as is often the case, the protests are being exploited by political extremists and opportunistic thieves.

    During a global pandemic? Almost certainly a terrible idea. A lot more Americans are going to die because of this and you can’t blame the right wing anti lockdown crew for this increase of mainly elderly and vulnerable citizens deaths, in fact, these often naive protesters and  amongst them less naive and far more opportunistic looters have just caused immense harm for the vulnerable of their communities 

    Police brutality? You should have seen how lockdown citizens were treated in many Mediterranean countries, those protesting would have been crushed rather rapidly, by the military considering the seriousness of the pandemic. We can now almost guarantee, certain areas in the USA are going to be amongst the hardest hit health wise and economically by the pandemic

    They aren't protesting over the death of George Floyd anymore, they are rioting so they can cause carnage and loot shops, while being eouraged by Antifa thugs.

    The murder of George Floyd has simply reignited black anger about the brutality of a mostly white police force, lack of opportunity and general treatment of black people as an underclass.  Coming on top of lockdown and a loudmouthed idiot in the White House, it has created a perfect storm.  Once you have an angry mob, there's no way of controlling it.
