Hundreds are attending a protest that took place in front of the Bakersfield Police Department in response to the death of George Floyd, a black man who was killed this week in Minneapolis when a white police officer restrained him by kneeling on Floyd's neck. Protests have been taking place throughout the country in response to the incident. Protestors gathered in downtown Bakersfield at around 4:30 p.m. and continue to demonstrate.

America has had enough of the "protesters" who loot (thieves) and burn down (arsonists) stores serving the minority community.

Is The Californian going to post the picture of the vandalized BPD Officer Memorial? Waiting...


It's pretty simple. You've shot 3 unarmed black people in the last 3 weeks.

Stop shooting unarmed black people. If so, none of this would be happening.


America has had enough.
