Michael Porter Jr., a small forward for the NBA’s Denver Nuggets, made a Twitter post on May 27, 2020 where he asked for people to pray for both George Floyd’s family and the police officers involved in this case.
Controversy kicked off on May 25, when a video Floyd was released which depicted him laying on his stomach in handcuffs as an officer placed his knee on Floyd’s neck to hold him down. Despite Floyd imploring that he couldn’t breathe, the officer kept his knee on Floyd’s neck.
Floyd would later die, and four officers involved in this incident ended up being fired by the Minneapolis Police Department.
Floyd was later declared dead, four officers involved have been fired by the Minneapolis Police Department.
Since then, riots have broken out throughout Minneapolis, where criminals have used Floyd’s death to engage in acts of Mayhem.
Porter Jr. tried to be a voice of reason when he tweeted, “As much as you pray for George family, gotta also pray for the police officer(s) who were involved in this evil. As hard as it is, pray for them instead of hate them…Pray that God changes their hearts.”

However, Siraj Hashmi, a writer for Washington Examiner, had to offer his $.02 on the matter.
Hashmi tweeted, “read the room michael.”

Nevertheless, it should be agreed upon by all reasonable Americans that rioting is not a form of protest and must be quelled immediately by the National Guard.
The most basic function of government is to maintain public order and rioting is the textbook example of disorder.
U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel
Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.
The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”
U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.
Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.
According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.
The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.
In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.
This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,
That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
