George Floyd Protestors: Here is  What You Need to Burn 1st

Here is a list the Protestors in America can burn that will make America a better place:

The Tax Code

The tax code, also called the Internal Revenue Code (IRC), is where the actual rules are published. Unfortunately, in addition to being thousands of pages long–in 2014, the IRC was approximately 2,600 pages long–the IRC is not easily decipherable by the average person.

The code is full of loopholes and dance-arounds for the rich and well lawyered , it is impossible for the average person to manage and is a nightmare for small business.

Cannabis laws

Cannabis laws in the USA today involve a variable, disjointed framework. Considerable disparities exist between federal and state statutes covering this subject. The lack of uniform enforcement of these laws at the federal level has created a lot of confusion.

Number of people arrested for a marijuana law violation in 2018: 663,367

Number of those charged with marijuana law violations who were arrested for possession only: 608,775

Percentage of people arrested for drug law violations who are Black or Latino: 46.9% (despite making up just 31.5% of the U.S. population)

Legislation Allowing Private Prisons

CoreCivic, formerly the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), is a company that owns and manages private prisons and detention centers and operates others on a concession basis. Co-founded in 1983 in Nashville, Tennessee by Thomas W. Beasley, Robert Crants, and T. Don Hutto, it received investments from the Tennessee Valley Authority, Vanderbilt University, and Jack C. Massey, the founder of Hospital Corporation of America.

Corrections Corporation of America, a $1.8 billion private prison corporation is now called CoreCivic, the boss Terrell Don Hutto use to run a cotton plantation. There, not slaves, but mostly black convicts were made to pick cotton all day for no pay. That’s who runs one of America’s largest Private Prison Group.

End it.

Militarization of 17,985 U.S. Police agencies in the United States

The militarization of both rural and urban law enforcement has been attributed to the United States’ involvement in wars during the 20th century, although some attribute the militarization to the more recent campaigns on drugs and terror. Historian Charles Beard argues that cultural change during the Great Depression encouraged the militarization of law enforcement, whereas Harwood argues that the creation of SWAT teams and tactical units within law enforcement during the 1960s began such a trend.

In recent years, the use of military equipment and tactics for community policing and for public order policing has become more widespread under the 1033 program.[2The program prompted discussion among lawmakers in 2014 after unrest in Ferguson, Missouri.President Obama introduced restrictions in 2015 on the transfer of surplus military equipment to police. In 2017, the Trump administration announced it will reinstate the program.
