    You dummy! All that was needed to control COVID-19 was to keep 6' from others using social distancing. To control LAWLESSNESS from looting and rioters takes a curfew. Even NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) now understands that in dealing with the lawlessness. 

    Go play somewhere else until you grow up.

    Curfews are an instrument of coercion, and have mainly been used to reduce violence.  There was no valid reason to have curfews for the coronavirus.

    Because the protests became riots.  Riots are not protests.  Looting and vandalism are not protests.  And because a white man MAY have killed a black man, does not automatically mean racism nor systemic racism.  We have been thru this before many times (King, Brown, Gray, Martin, etc) only to find out the initial narrative is completely false.  And now we have a preliminary autopsy:  George Floyd autopsy shows no signs of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation, attributes death to 'being restrained, his underlying health conditions, and any potential intoxicants in his system.

    How does smashing windows, stealing TVs, and beating up shopkeepers protest "systematic racism"?
