I thought they put an end to it last night, but apparently it spilled over onto 85.

The only way to stop it is to enforce a curfew.

Arrest the violent protesters and call in the National Guard.

Come on Red is that the best you've got. Trying to pin this on politics is like trying to pin the looting on honest hard working peaceful people that just happen to be concerned enough to express themselves without breaking the law.

Agreed. Officers are not paid well enough for what they endure.

Charlotte doesn't have enough officers.

This "squabble" isn't that big in size. In this I am not criticizing CMPD; they need more officers.

The city should have been more prepared for this unrest tonight! I fear that the situation is only going to continue to spiral out of control until the National Guard is brought in.

What's political about it? She just happens to be married to some guy trying to run this country (in the ground).

Or until there is nowhere to loot.

you are asking a loaded question that doesnt address this situation.
A person of interest with a loaded gun pointed at law enforcement officers is different from what you are inferring to.

No, the question has clarity. Would I want to protect a criminal or someone committing a serious crime? No, I would not.
