7% of BLM Protests Are Violent

https://acleddata.com/2020/09/03/demonstrations-political-violence-in-america-new-data-for-summer-20...

 

"The vast majority of demonstration events associated with the BLM movement are non-violent (see map below). In more than 93% of all demonstrations connected to the movement, demonstrators have not engaged in violence or destructive activity."

 

Also, 5% of all protests were violent.

 

"nearly 95% — involve peaceful protesters. Fewer than 570 — or approximately 5% — involve demonstrators engaging in violence."

 

If you had Skittles in a jar and knew that 7% were poison, would you eat one?

7% of BLM Protests Are Violent

 

I don't see how anyone can lump them all together.

 

There are always criminals out there, there is always some level of crime.

 

These big peaceful protest give criminals cover.

 

I don't think if it's really accurate to associate peaceful protest with crime.

It is great fun watching regesssives try to get statistics prove their positions..........and they just can't quite understand how statistics work.

Oh, we have plenty of proof in the form of black bodies dead at the hands of police. In this case, we have the vast majority of protest against those undeserved deaths at the hands of policy being nonviolent protests in spite of the thousands of Americans from all walks of American life,  who are participating. 

 

On the other hand, you get ten white supremacists together in Kenosha and people end up dead in the streets.  That is pretty much the long and short of it.

Which has nothing to do with statistics or understanding thereof.  Obviously, liberals think in connotations instead of denotations like sane people do.

'Trump Doesn't Condemn VIOLENCE   Because He Incites It':...https://dailysoundandfury.com/trump-doesnt-condemn-it-because-he-incites-it-president-defends-right-...

(If there is 7% violence  it's on TRUMP's watch he's prez  (unlucky us) 

 Trump late Monday defended the actions of a 17-year-old vigilante and Trump supporter who was charged with murder last week after killing two people and injuring another with a military-style semi-automatic rifle in Kenosha, Wisconsin during demonstrations over the police shooting of Jacob Blake. Asked during a press briefing whether he would condemn …rump said “that was an interesting situation” and proceeded to suggest Rittenhouse’s shooting of three people was justified on self-defense grounds.

If and when the court verdict favors Rittenhouse, there will be more riots as in the case of George Zimmerman.  Obama incited those riots by likening the victim to his son.

So, contrary to what the regressives would like us to believe, 93% of the demonstrations involving thousands and thousands of people are peaceful protests?  Kind of takes the wind out of Trump's law & order platform doesn't it?

From the topic source....

 

AN OVERWHELMINGLY PEACEFUL MOVEMENT

The vast majority of demonstration events associated with the BLM movement are non-violent (see map below). In more than 93% of all demonstrations connected to the movement, demonstrators have not engaged in violence or destructive activity. Peaceful protests are reported in over 2,400 distinct locations around the country. 

 

Not surprising that THIS isn't the narrative of trump, his Cult OR the right-wing!

Criminals and supremist groups are the ones causing riots and destruction. True protesters are not there to destroy and cause harm...or kill. 

The police caused all of this by their actions against Black Lives...and they have been part of the problem, not part of the solution. 
Perhaps if someone were able to poll all of those at the protest sites, we might get more accurate percentages, and a real breakdown of groups...but no polls like that exist. 

Honored Social Butterfly

What percent of protests become violent WITHOUT the police attempting to disperse the crowd?

 

According to Nonviolent and Violent Campaigns and Outcomes (NAVCO) 3.0 data set  and three comparative case studies, the most common cause for peaceful demonstrations turning violent is the history of Government violence toward the protest movement.

 

In short, the more often Government uses force against a movement, the more likely the demonstrations will turn violent.

 

So if you knew 5 human beings in a group of 100 were possible trouble makers, would you gas and beat the entire group? Seems that is the preferred method for tRump and his supporters, and, as most of what the Toad and his Worshipers do, has the lowest chance of successfully resolving the issues.

You are right, Bill.  Of course, the source doesn't include or state/indicate what percentage of "violence" was/were perpetrated by right-wing fascist groups like White Supremacists, KKK, Alt-right, etc.  It's rather deceptive....just as the headline FALSELY stating 7% but the article states 5%.

 

It's difficult to trust any information posted by a trump supporter.

100% - 93% = 7%.  Duh?

 

And since the source has a liberal spin ("vast majority" is BS), it is probably more than 7%.

 

And 100% of the peaceful protesters don't care that there is a 7% chance that they are a Trojan horse for violence therefore 100% of the protesters are to blame.

Less than 5% of non-BLM protests were violent as compared to 7% of BLM protests. That's what makes BLM protests so darn special.

Wait, peaceful protesters are supposed to do WHAT about the non peaceful protesters?  Arm up and start firing into the crowd. They did that in Kenosha.
