ammo all sold out up here in Forsyth :grinning:

that group in front of the governors mansion looked like a Maroon 5 concert just let out.

I beat Kemp wishes he never lifted that shelter in place :joy:

Fingers crossed that they stay peaceful in front of mansion

Trey @treyhelmer

yeah looks to me like a stiff breeze would knock all those kids over. they need to just go back to their parents house.

falco @falco

Being dismissed like that is one of the reasons demonstrators get angry

Trey @treyhelmer

well i said house, i didnt say basement

falco @falco

Not that it justifies them moving into violence, but being patronized, or feeling they're not being listened to, isn't helping

The Atlanta PoC moving through the crowd and talking to demonstrators, hearing their complaints, probably prevented a lot more happening. Even if there's no intention of doing anything about it (which again, leads to more frustration), it's a good gesture

There's precious little attempt at good faith gestures nowadays, which makes them more powerful when they do occur

Trey @treyhelmer

yeah i agree tho, i think this situation is worthy of protests, i do respect that. i hope they dont do something stupid because those swat and guards would squish them like ants

i dont think any professional instigators would do anything at the governors mansion anyway.
