People tell you who they are (or, who they want to be), all anyone has to do is listen.

Rest in peace, Officer Moore.

Sorry my friend
I wonder if you hesitated in any way from all the bs going on... I hope we will learn from your death and that your life will not have been wasted...

I wonder if your blood will quench the sick twisted perverted uninformed among us
I fear not

Rip my friend ... St Michael is watching over you

Respectfully
Notme

SoCalBound12, The race of the shooter was revealed at the time of the arrest hours after the shooting.
I heard it on the news and read about it in Sunday's papers.

Boo hoo. For people who complain about complainers, y'all sure do complain.

Some white guy basically assaulted my roommate during a freakin flag football and I'm sitting in urgent care waiting for him to stitches and x-rays.

Maybe I'll make a thread here tomorrow and whine like a toddler.

Cops understand that you can die in the line of duty, from a routine traffic stop to a drug bust - it's part of the risk. But civilians don't, or at least shouldn't have to think their life is in jeopardy when dealing with the police, whether you haven't been arrested or get arrested every other week.

Amazing how adults cannot understand the difference. Baffling.

There was another shooting spree today in Wisconsin, that didn't get much press, either.

I don't like it, but I'm not in charge of what gets pushed and talked about.

Write a letter to your local congressman/woman.
On the left coast we hardly hear about it.

The media sensationalizing every black arrest video and police shooting is feeding the
fear & backlash..I blame them for putting the police at greater risk...

Media has a new way of doing it now. They say White, Asian, Hispanic, etc. If they say nothing, then assume Black.

They are afraid to mention "Black", "Africa American", whatever is today's acceptable word, when it comes to criminal behavior lest Al Sharpton or other race huckster complain.

This is the new normal.
