Its not about getting the last word in. Oh and do you really not know that you are the biggest internet warrior (whatever that stupid term is) on CD?
I have been to protests and disagreed with protesters in person.

So again, complaining about it here does no good. Take it straight to the source. I've seen people in the general public have discussions and disagreements with protesters, EVEN WOMEN! Including mothers. So no excuse.

If they want to rally, they can get a permit, and the city has to cooperate. If they want to show they can be disruptive (which was a CLEAR point of these marches), they need to be squashed.
Okay, that sounds a LOT better. Yes, you do have the right to assemble and speak. Yes, protesters can get a permit from the city (I'm told the Saturday event was permitted). And yes, protesters were arrested for blocking traffic on earlier events.

Unfortunately I'm 110% employed at the moment. Nor do I really care that much. I don't really want to be responsible for breaking up the biggest party of the month, because really that is all it is (or at this point was). At the end of the day nobody really cares that these criminals are dead but the police. That's what makes their jobs easier. Two less criminals roaming the streets.

Know what even has less problems? How many criminals that end up dying during arrest. Statistically it happens less so than protests getting violent.

Bottom line its a black vs white issue. You can tell me all you want that its a police issue. That's utter nonsense though. 50 years from now nothing will change. With the exception that the NYPD will be 80% minority by then. Guess what? These things will still happen! Have your marches. Cops love the overtime and you will just get jerked off by the politicians!

Excuses Mr. Internet warrior, excuses for your impotence.

Not senile at all. Everything I said is true. But keep believing your garbage in the fantasy world you live in!

You mean my excuses for not protesting the protesters that are not protesting anymore? Forget about being an internet warrior, your a real internet clown. Sorry for having a different opinion on how to handle your criminal thug buddies.

When is the march to protest black on black crime ? Or will that coincide with your march to protest the slaughter of 80+ children in Pakistan this morning by the Taliban...? Just wondering
