CNN, Pumps out more garbage

CNN guest David Peisner caught flak Saturday for claiming that the only violence taking place in the fiery uproar underway in Atlanta is being instigated by police. "I think that there’s a real blurring of the lines in the use of the word violence. Is property destruction violence? To some people it certainly is. But, you know, this idea that breaking windows or other acts of property destruction are the same as actual violence against humans, it’s kind of a dangerous and slippery concept,’" he told CNN's Pamela Brown Saturday on "CNN Newsroom."

"You keep using these words ‘violent, violent, violent, violent'… The only acts of violence against people that I saw were actually police tackling protesters," he added. Peisner further suggested the group of rioters was "small" and that people involved in the incident were acting apart from the "Defend the Forest" movement memorializing 26-year-old activist Manuel Esteban Paez Teran, who was killed in a gunfire exchange Wednesday after allegedly firing at Georgia state troopers.

The riots were justified. Police killed an innocent man

@Mithraia [quote]I will reserve judgment until evidence is provided then.

Weird, that's not what you said just a few comments ago...

[quote]he officers have produced no evidence that Teran shot at them. Until I see evidence to the contrary, the police have once again killed in cold blood

@Mithraia bullshit I wish all you pantywaste POSs would go visit 3rd world countries and find out what real police reactions are when you break there laws.

@Shaveit [quote]I wish all you pantywaste POSs would go visit 3rd world countries and find out what real police reactions are when you brake there laws.[/quote] Nice spelling. And what country could be worse than America, where you are killed in cold blood even if you don't "brake there laws"...?

Property destruction is violence. Antifa is the most fascistic organization at large.

@windinhishair Conspiracy can be a conversation in a car 1000 miles from an intended target. It needn’t result in any action, or follow up crime. A mere conversation can constitute conspiracy. .

@redredred That wasn't the evidence presented successfully at trial. And now these domestic terrorists have been convicted of crimes against the US that will keep them in prison for the rest of their lives. Do try to keep up with the facts, not speculation about things that could happen in another, unrelated situation.
Soon enough nobodies gunna wanna be a cop and only the elite will afford private security..
self defence is going the way of the dodo..
the peep is the victim and the victim is a premeditated unprovoked extremist in 2023…

@TheOneyouwerewarnedabout It’ll be everyone out for themselves when that happens. Let the bodies fall where they will in that case.

I don’t believe that. There was a customer where I worked who came back to pay off his car after he moved to Atlanta. This was about 10 years ago. He had lived there before. He was telling me how mobs would rush into shopping malls and loot even without any kind of politics going on. He was very disgruntled about that and used some strong language telling me. Criminals start the crap and don’t believe that the police have any right to try to stop what’s going on.

I've seen this movie before
Classic CCN garbage. The left is always trying to redefine things. Ex: pedophiles are now considered "minor attracted persons." The law has always viewed the destruction of property as a violent act. Let's get back to reality and stop living in clown world.
@Darksideinthenight2 [quote]killing 10 ppl and injuring 10 other with an automatic weapon.[/quote]
And it's confirmed, the shooter used a pistol. Not an "assault rifle" and not an automatic weapon.
@OggggO Yeah it is, and you know it.

Right...that'll show us...that y'all are dumbasses 🤣🤣🤣

@BizSuitStacy Bold move, to laugh about being taken in by a scam.

They should turn CNN into a porn site, they would probably get more viewers than they have now.
FOX is soooo much better, huh?
MarkPaul · 26-30, M
It sounds like your grievance is with David Peisner. CNN brought you a point of view you don't want to hear, but is out there.

Infomercials for vacuum cleaners get higher ratings than CNN.
Shaveit · 61-69, M
If you don’t break any laws you have nothing to worry about. If you break a window that you doesn’t belong to you, it IS violence against the person that does.
Shaveit · 61-69, M
@Mithraia I have to speak in a manner that someone with the intelligence of a 6 to 9 year old can understand
By your reaction I am dead on target!

@Mithraia I'm glad.

I say the news shouldn't side so much in the political tit for tat.
LvChris · 41-45, M
The federal guidelines do and long have defined violence as acts against persons. It's not CNN's fault that so many of you don't understand that.
Shaveit · 61-69, M
@LvChris burning someone’s car is against them.
Well what happened last night in California is even more astonishing. 10 ppl being murdered and another 10 hospitalized. and yet the suspect still on the loose. 10 plus hrs he still out.

That something more worrisome tbh
Mithraia · 31-35, M
@Darksideinthenight2 It is. I daresay @HoraceGreenley has nothing to say about that.
@Mithraia ofc actually most ppl have nothing to say. They wanna pound in about irrelevant stuff instead of something more worrisome. Ppl are fucking idiots
