As Albuquerque unraveled, Jon “Bones” Jones took matters into his own hands.
We may have discovered the best solution to limit senseless violence amid the George Floyd protests that have erupted across the country, including Boston. Send the greatest cage fighters in the world to give these kids a spanking and send them home.
The prospective vandals in the video above seem to know who was confiscating their spray cans. Gave them right up. Deploy guys who could clearly kick some ass if they had to and you may start to see these kids stay home more.
“Is this s**t even about George Floyd anymore?!? Why the f**k are you punk ass teenagers destroying our cities!??” Jones said in the video’s caption. “As a young black man trust me I’m frustrated as well but this is not the way, we are starting to make a bad situation worse. If you really got love for your city (505), protect your s**t. All you old heads need to speak up, call your young family members and tell them to come home tonight.”
Not gonna damage private property on Jones’ watch. Rioters should follow his example. If you’re going to fire a gun, do it safely in your Jeep with a bottle of Recuerdo like a normal person. If you’re going to break anything, make sure it’s the guy’s ACL or the arm of a pregnant woman.
Really though, Jones did the best thing possible here. Anything violent? Nope. That only happens in the octagon. On the street, Jones is looking to clean up. Hopefully there’s more video of children capitulating to people who are severely tougher than they’ll ever be.
Jones raised a good question that the Facebook and Twitter people probably want to pretend isn’t real life. At what point does this stop being about George Floyd and get overrun by a bunch of hormonal rabble-rousers with an excuse to make a scene? The only thing the Jones video needed was for these two punks to give their in-depth thoughts on George Floyd, racism, and police brutality. Would’ve bet anything they’d stammer their way through some nonsense.
Speaking of punks, did you notice the people Jones confronted were a couple of meek white kids? That is highly unusual.
(The two videos above are from Boston.)
If only these cities had UFC fighters on the prowl.
