Black Lives Matter rally held in Nyack

HOUSTON-Demonstrators have marched through the streets chanting and demanding change, but members of the Black Lives Matter movement have also been called racists by some of those promoting the slogan "All Lives Matter".

When his host, John Dickerson tried to cut him short, he continued and insisted that the police wasn't the problem.

Britt, a retired police officer, said the violence and what to do if you are pulled over was also part of the discussion on Sunday.

"They are wrong, all lives matter", said Herbert Lusk, the pastor at Bethel Missionary Baptist Church.

"The city has a vigil for the Dallas police officers who got shot".

Authorities have arrested over 200 individuals as the unrest persists.

Calls for a Black Lives Matter rally have been posted on social media.

Reports indicate that law enforcement fatally shot about 990 persons in 2015, and this year has seen over 500 shootings.

She said the Black Lives Matter movement is "being subliminally changed". "They could just been walking down the street and their lives could be be taken away".

Federal Bureau of Investigation interviews Hillary Clinton for 3.5 hours in private email server probe
One of the key questions is whether Clinton and her aides mishandled classified information on the server. Clinton has struggled with the allegations of mishandling "classified" information.

"They were slaughtering black children and black young men and we cut that by 65 percent, so don't tell me I don't care about black lives".

I personally like the Black and Blue movement, but who am I to say. "Black Lives Matter does not mean all lives don't matter".

Asked by the AP what he would say to African-Americans who feel targeted by police due to their skin color, Trump replied, "We have to talk to 'em and we have to build up the spirit ..." Police shootings have been halved, from 23 in 2012 to just 11 in 2015 - and only one so far this year, according to Police Department data.

It was reported that the officer and Gebhard were friends on Facebook, but clashed online over the recent police related killings and the Black Lives Matter movement.

The petition, submitted through the White House's "We the People" project, states, "It is time for the pentagon to be consistent in its actions - and just as they rightfully declared ISIS a terror group, they must declare Black Lives Matter a terror group - on the grounds of principle, integrity, morality, and safety".

The black community is exhausted of not feeling protected, they are exhausted of receiving longer jail sentences in comparison to white people-they want equality. "I don't know why this has to be us against them".

"To my youth, especially to my youth, do not resist, put your hands behind your back, let them cuff you. The cultures in every city are difference and Black Lives Matter responds to those cultures". "I'm actually in support of it, opposition doesn't make me angry".

Brown happens to be African-American, but that's not the most significant thing about him.

It has made specific political demands, including the overhaul of Canada's Special Investigations Unit, which is tasked with holding police accountable but which Black Lives Matter campaigners say is too dominated by former officers to be independent.
