What do you really think will come from attacking police officers? They are trained for combat. They are experts and trained in their profession. The only thing holding them back from retaliation and leveling the playing field is political correctness, the federal government and public outcry for the massive amount of carnage they can impose on their weak counterparts.
I didn’t follow the Minnesota protests from Saturday night as I was wrapping up my radio show but finding out about this carnage was unbelievable. Hitting someone in the hard with a rock and pointing a laser at them is a good way to get killed. This is what our police officers deal with daily. This is why they approach a car on edge and are paranoid. These people rioting are trying to make a hero out of someone who has a lifelong criminal history. Why don’t they protest the Dallas slaughter of five outstanding citizens who were trying to do something with their life.
Twenty-one officers from various Minnesota law enforcement agencies were injured and more than 102 protestors were arrested as a demonstration on the I-94 freeway in St. Paul turned violent Saturday night, with protestors hurling rocks, bottles, fireworks and bricks at law enforcement officers on the scene.
Hundreds of demonstrators began protesting at the Governor’s Residence in St. Paul Saturday night over the police-involved shooting death of Philando Castile earlier in the week before heading onto the I-94 freeway around 8 p.m., local Fox affiliate KMSP reported.
The interstate was shut down in both directions for more than five hours and the protests eventually turned violent, with demonstrators hurling bricks, fireworks and at least one Molotov cocktail at officers, according to the St. Paul Police Depart
Here is the video report:
Are you sick of this? The protests might start out peaceful; then you always have an instigator or two in the bunch that will destroy the entire purpose which could easily cause an unsafe environment for everyone.
Dropping things and throwing things at officers who may be good officers because of other civil servants’ actions is not helping. Do you think they should sit there and just take it? Expect problems if this is the behavior.
Pretty soon nobody will come to aid others anymore because of all of this. It seems people don’t want actual policing at all. I understand some of the incidents are unjust, and those should be treated appropriately, but lashing out at every other officer because of a few is ridiculous. The result of having no police is a pretty scary situation.
The high tension and outward anger towards police are making our country even more dangerous for everyone. Groups of radical people are making it pretty awful for both sides. If your son, daughter, husband or wife were an officer, how would you feel if protestors lashed out at them when they are not even related to the situation at hand? They wear a uniform. Thus they are bad. That seems to be the mindset.
Every person (whether officer or civilian) has people who love them, care for them, want to see them come home at night. Our country needs compassion all the way around for everyone.
