    We are in complete agreement on sentiment. In reality, that is an expensive luxury. I have a friend who is a lifeguard. He is required to take classes each year on major medical symptoms, awareness, and basic EMT care. He is also required to go riding with a crew once each quarter. He has saved numerous non-drowning lives due to his training. I find it ridiculous that cops are not held to that standard. This is such an inexpensive thing to do. They are all civil servants, so the costs are absolved under the pretext of cross-training, something every successful and profitable business does.

    That's way cheaper than a nurse for every team.

    I haven't said I support the protest.

    We're handling the pandemic poorly and we need more national leadership. Suppress the virus, save the economy, and have a national commission on race in America. All of it can be done.
    This doesn't make much sense.

    I think Trump is in trouble.

    I don't think we'll deport ten million people. But we can make sure we discourage and prevent illegal immigration.

    If cops are prohibited from killing and abusing black people they will resort to beating the crap out of their wives and kids everyday =

    Police Family Violence Fact Sheet
    "Two studies have found that at least 40% of police officer families experience domestic violence, (1, 2) in contrast to 10% of families in the general population.(3) A third study of older and more experienced officers found a rate of 24% (4), indicating that domestic violence is 2-4 times more common among police families than American families in general. A police department that has domestic violence offenders among its ranks will not effectively serve and protect victims in the community.5, 6, 7, 8Moreover, when officers know of domestic violence committed by their colleagues and seek to protect them by covering it up, they expose the department to civil liability.7"
    http://womenandpolicing.com/violenceFS.asp

    Think about that. About 40% or more of the cops you see at the protest marches kick the crap out of their families on a routine basis. The other 60% engage in police brutality against random people they encounter.

    Do you know that Amy Klobuchar had refused to prosecute killer thug cop Chauvin for police brutality? So she enabled him to go on and murder Floyd. Conduct an experiment. Put a whole plastic bag over your head and tape it closed around you neck. See if you can last 8 minutes and 47 seconds.

    Perhaps all law enforcement should be pulled out of any area where there is a concentration of "minorities". Let them police themselves for a while like in Chicago.

    Of course they are worried, to put it eloquently, DUH.

    They will change their minds if they are under 65 and able bodied, they will have no choice unless the plan is to sit home for months on end slowly going broke. That's their decision, I'm not going to try and convince them except to lead by example.

    I still have two relatives that literally have been holed up since mid march. We had a discussion last week when their daughter had a birthday, they wanted us to move the birthday party to July. We said nope, we are having the dam party, you can facetime in for the singing part.

    We still politely invite them to activities that we are.back to doing all the time, and they keep declining. That's fine, stay home and wipe down those tin cans and watch cnn all day, the rest of us have moved on.

    We are not out there licking doorknobs, were working, Living, and yes, traveling.

    Civil war is coming between the “anything I feel like, whenever I feel like, to whomever I feel like, for whatever “why” I feel like, simply because I feel like it” (the Progressive Left) and the “God, country, and mom’s apple pie” (the Nationalist Right) or if you prefer between the “Joker” mob and the “John Wayne” citizens.

    The protesters are not moral beings demanding justice; if they were, skin color wouldn't matter, the fact that a human soul died because of brutal authoritarian force, would. The rioters and looters are not the disillusioned youth seeking an ideal of peace and love; if they were, they'd be living their lives creating values instead of destroying them. And if they genuinely were the heroes they proclaim to be, they'd be reading Ayn Rand, studying her philosophy, and doing their best to live the life of a rational soul. Instead, they are murdering the police, robbing the creative, burning the future, and assaulting the defenseless.

    Indeed, the protestors, the looters, the rioters, that cop, and the authoritarian ideal of the common good (tribalism, collectivism, socialism,fascism) are the barbarians at the gate.

    The Barbarians at the Gates.

    It's not a matter of ego here, It is a matter of upholding the law.
