Living in Troubled Times.
A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within.
You are spot on, Harry. If they wish to stay out of jail, it might be a really good idea to stop being a criminal. And by the way...our local BLM terrorists plan to shut down the light rail system in Minneapolis on Sunday. Why? Because it is the opening day of the Vikings football season and many folks use light rail to get to the games. Sad thing is, they will likely get away with it. After all, nobody wants to be labeled "racist," now do they. Sheesh!
Vicki, I think they are starting to get some push back for their actions. I saw a clip on the news where the 13% blocked a freeway. The motorists duly stopped, except for one SUV who went into low, then just pushed right through them while they beat on the car with their little fists and signs.But when they do get away with this behavior, it's because normal people don't know what to do to resist them. When people try to force their will on you, but are not directly threatening your life, how do you respond. All the people arrested for rioting and looting in Baltimore were released without charge by the Mayor. But if one of us gets out with a baseball bat and lays about a bunch of 13% Goblins blocking a road, we'll get arrested and put in jail.
i read one lady from baltimore said she did not recognize the criminals and she saw no locals among them.
Maybe they needed some new sneakers so they made a day trip to participate in the free shopping zone provided by the Mayor of Baltimore. Wouldn't surprise me any.
Biden's been in the DC bubble too long.Even if you've got a real issue, shooting cops is not the answer. We've been down this road before and backlash is ugly. American cities were burning in the 60s and the establishment doubled down and sent the Guard in.I've seen enough cops close up to see some pretty corrupt departments -and race wasn't even an issue. There are also plenty of decent guys just trying to do the job. However, good or bad, shooting them ain't gonna work to advance what are essentially political issues.
I'm no apologist for the police, but I agree that the vast majority are decent people trying to do a hard job. I think this is about race, pure and simple. The Black Lives Matter people don't give a damn about justice, they just want an excuse to push their agenda on everybody else.
i think they dream [or hallucinate] that of they kill everyone white and asian they will all be rich and live high on the hog.
Or they just enjoy violence for it's own sake.
What scary statistics. The one in nine all males I find really bad not sure what it is over here but it's certainly a lot lower!
Kev, black men seem to gravitate towards drugs and violence. If you get off the wrong freeway exit here and get into the inner city, you have a good chance of not coming out again.I remember a big blizzard in Atlanta where it hit at rush hour and people got trapped on the freeway. The inner city dwellers came up the off ramps and went from car to car beating people and robbing them. I watched it on the news as it happened, there was a Channel 5 news helicopter overhead that transmitted it as it took place. The police were helpless as they had no fourwheel drive vehicles.
