Americans woke up to a city in smoke and cinder after residents, who are mostly black, looted and destroyed stores and a police precinct in Minneapolis. This happened after a video was released by a bystander who witnessed police officers detain George Floyd, who is black, for allegedly passing a counterfeit twenty-dollar bill.

In the video, one officer keeps Mr. Floyd on his stomach to the ground as he presses his knee deeply into his neck. Bystanders and Mr. Floyd begged the white officer and three other officers next to him to let him breathe, even as he called out for "mama." But cries for the protection of his life were ignored. He died without oxygen in nine minutes while the police officer kept his knee on his dead body for another three minutes.

In those nine minutes, law and order failed Americans. Yet, Americans quickly blamed looters for destroying their own city. In live video, we watched women run into stores to steal diapers and baby food while young men placed multiple televisions in shopping carts to sell later before they ignited the stores in flames. Some politicians called them thugs, like President Obama did to the looters during the protests in Baltimore in 2015. 

Tim Walz, the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party Governor, said cavalierly, "they're rioters, they're looters." But we should question what King George would have thought about some of our Founders who commandeered liquor and other commodities to sell them to buy guns so they could fight an oppressive government who protected the rights of the King instead of the people.

Despite this, the destruction must stop. The first step is for Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey, who has enabled the chaos in the streets, to resign.

Government officials do not become super citizens when they are tasked with protecting our peace. It's injustice that police officers who are reasonably suspected of breaking the law are not swiftly arrested and questioned like any other American. Instead, these so-called super citizens are given 72 to 96 hours to come up with a story through their unions that are financially tied to the Democratic Party who, for decades, controls the government in Minnesota.

That's why BEST (Blacks Economic Security Today) calls for the immediate resignation of Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman after charging one of the police officers with the least charge, third-degree manslaughter, which blacks see as a game that allows the officer to plea down his case and walk.

We also call on President Trump to take two actions to restore law and order and secure the lives of every American, especially Americans who are black.

First, President Trump swiftly and correctly called on the FBI and DOJ to investigate the police officers before waiting on investigations from the city and state. This Trump doctrine sets a new standard for police rules of engagement where any American in authority who kills another American must be immediately detained and investigated.

So far, only one officer has been arrested. Therefore, justice continues to be delayed at the risk of loss of further lives and property. Like President Eisenhower in 1957, where he sent troops to Arkansas to enforce school integration, Trump should order US Marshals to enforce equality in the law and detain the other three officers for questioning without delay to quell the unrest.

Republicans must join President Trump to call on the Federal Government to investigate and protect our rights in states where it is abused by local officials. We remind Republicans not to abdicate their role as the Party of Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln died for his view that enslaved people in our nation were Americans who enjoyed the privileges of citizenship that are enshrined in our founding documents. When states ignored those rights, Lincoln forced the issue and many Americans joined with him for this truth.

Second, President Trump should keep in touch with the victim's family, visit them and send Cabinet Members such as Dr. Ben Carson or his Chief of Staff to work with them. People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care.

When Martin Luther King Jr. was unfairly placed in a Georgia jail in 1960, John F. Kennedy changed history when he helped to secure his release. As a candidate for President who courted Southern whites, blacks viewed Kennedy with suspicion. But Kennedy made a phone call to King's wife and his father to tell them that he hates unfairness and will help to secure the release of Dr. King from jail. In that simple phone call, Kennedy showed the black community that he cared.

President Trump is a man who cares about black America; when Trump follows our thinking, he will recognize that the state has failed and take action from the federal level to protect Americans' rights and lives. With that, he may very well have the black community's appreciation.

China has admitted that it destroyed early samples of the novel coronavirus, but said it did so for safety reasons. The acknowledgment by a Chinese official is a response to comments made earlier this week by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

A Chinese official publicly stated that the destruction of early samples was for "biosafety" and not part of a cover-up of the coronavirus outbreak.

"Based on comprehensive research and expert opinion, we decided to temporarily manage the pathogen causing the pneumonia as Class II — highly pathogenic — and imposed biosafety requirements on sample collection, transport, and experimental activities, as well as destroying the samples," China's National Health Commission's Liu Dengfeng told reporters, according to the South China Morning Post.

Breonna Taylor was working as an EMT in Louisville when the coronavirus pandemic hit the country, helping to save lives while trying to protect her own.

On March 13, the 26-year-old aspiring nurse was killed in her apartment, shot at least eight times by Louisville police officers who officials have said were executing a drug warrant, according to a lawsuit filed by the family, accusing officers of wrongful death, excessive force and gross negligence.

“Not one person has talked to me. Not one person has explained anything to me,” Tamika Palmer, Taylor’s mother, said in an interview. “I want justice for her. I want them to say her name. There’s no reason Breonna should be dead at all.”  Read full story here.

GettyImages-498664792-700x420.jpgThere were 15 shooting deaths by police of unarmed black men in the United States in 2018, according to official data compiled by The Washington Post.

These figures come despite pervasive, yet misplaced, public outcry that has characterized police shootings of blacks as pathologically widespread and the most critical issue facing the black community.

Year after year, the statistics don’t support that narrative, and 2018 was no exception. Click here to continue reading.

California Republicans turned in a strong and largely overlooked performance on Super Tuesday, improving their position to take back many of the House seats they lost in 2018.

Republicans have strong leads in two of those districts, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Click here to continue reading.
