Social Order And Freedom Of Press
Because of the police brutality in the George Floyd case, a lot of national unrest has erupted. In many major U.S. cities, many peaceful demonstrations have turned into violence. President Trump tweeted today and said that, “I can’t stand back and watch this happen to a great American city like Minneapolis. A total lack of leadership. Either the very weak radical left Mayor Jacob Frey gets his act together and brings the city under control, or I will send in the National Guard and get the job done right.”
Houston, Texas, the city George Floyd was born in, will host a big rally to protest police brutality. We very much regret this event that has already created political turmoil.
In the past several decades, racial discrimination has been one of the most serious issues in America. In our communities, law enforcement has always viewed African-American and minorities as a major source of crime and have used excessive force on these people. Now, in Floyd’s case, the use of force has become a national tragedy.
President Trump has just signed an executive order and asked Congress to revoke the Section 230 part of a1996 law that laid out rules for online media. He said today we are facing the gravest danger to our right of freedom of speech in American history.
Today, the United States of America has really come to a crossroad. This great nation was founded on democracy, liberty and freedom of speech. With all the things happening today in our society, will our national spirit be broken and changed?
