its fine to disagree and strongly debate with others that view the world differently than you do. But once you bring violence and hatred into the equation, then you have to understand the karma that is going to come back to you.
The worst job in the country now is being a cop, and like you Jay, I always thank them, wave, and smile, just because I know that one day, I will be in a tough situation and need a cop to help me out. When I was younger, I thought all cops were my enemies, but, maturity and knowledge has shown me thats not the case.

thanks for the nice thoughts, and you keep on being the positive karmic force that you obviously are...no doubt, your great karma will protect you thoughout your life!
Nice being white. Unfortunately, not everyone is so privileged.

wase4711, hey, I appreciate your kind words, my friend!

I, too, had issues with police officers when I was younger. But I turned it around. Now I work in corrections. I have good rapport with inmates because I was in their shoes once! But I also support the police because they are devoted to their beliefs in their careers. And obviously, if anyone were to abuse their power they would be wrong! As would anyone in any field who abused their role and mistreated people. ... but we don't hate anyone merely for their employment as a Police Officer, just as we don't hate anyone merely for being a Black individual.
Yes wase4711, stay positive and share that energy. You are a conductor!

CPD fails again, using excessive violence, especially in an unprovoked situation.
Bless the CPD for being the heroes that this city needs more now than ever.

Maybe if they do another Muhammed Ali biography, she can play Leon Spinks.

Hey, if you're going to play football, don't be surprised if somebody tackles you. This is textbook Bill Ayers; provoke the police, and then have somebody with a camera film the cop's reaction without showing the provocation. Hit a cop, expect to get hit back, IMHO. Now, I don't know for sure if she DID hit a cop, hopefully there is video taken by somebody not looking to create propaganda against the cops. If the cop hit her without any provocation, that's a different story. Show me the evidence, and not an edited video from BLM.

The more protests I see and i hear about around this country, the less sympathy I feel for whatever cause they are "fighting" for. As of right now I have just about zero. All I see at this point are trouble makers.

Our beautiful city has other crimes our police should be focusing on. Because some idiots want to destroy public property and harm our police, many people will not get the police protection

This is a screen shot( as of a few min ago) from the citizen app I have on my phone. Another crazy out of control evening. Lightfoot Fails Again; Protestors Injure and Assaulted By Vandals Trying To Tear Statue Down-screenshot_20200719-042802_citizen.jpg

It's getting to the point where the CPD is just going to sit back and let the city burn down, and I for one don't blame them. I just hope I don't have to be in the office the day the 1871 re-enactment happens.
