Especially since that's incitement speech probably not protected by the First Amendment.

The twitter crowd didn't go after her for siding with the Dallas shooter over the cops.
I guess it's only bad to choose the side of the cops.

Fredricka's choice of words was ill-advised, like someone else said her mouth was probably a bit faster than her brain - resulting in a poor choice of words.

I'd just chalk this up to sh*t happens. It's not a big deal; nothing to get outraged over.

The folks and groups who are playing this up are just trying to push a narrative.

I disagree. News anchors and commentators say what they want to say. Look at Brian Williams. I think she meant it.

When you are in front of a microphone a lot you are recorded saying stupid things some you mean and some are just slipups. Hopefully she misspoke and did not mean it.

Oooooh. Okay. All the police deserve to be murdered because of the 1% that need to be removed from service. Brilliant.

I thought of "crazy and delusional" when I read about this guy and what he was going to do.
"Brave and courageous" didn't even enter my brainwaves.

Courageous ?

They fired and/or removed others for "siding with" the gun-pulling pool party officer. But, she'll probably get a raise.

I guess her support of the gunman out her as an anti-Obama gun nut.

Was he? I am not sure if that even really matters anymore at this point. He is in a gun shootout with the police! Who did he think would win?

It is Texas though.



Brave and dumber! Just ask Koresh.
