Oh Jeez...can't you cops control yourselves and stop giving ammo to the radical left. You guys are your own worst enemies.

It sounds like there was something wrong with this guy. It will not surprise me if the COD has nothing to do with police actions. Two other things. First, if you break the law and then do not comply with the police these are the actions the police, rightfully, have to take to control you. What is the other option? Without being under control you can hurt yourself, the police or bystanders. Second, can we please stop with the Marijuana offenses. I don't really think hard drugs should be legalized unless there is no welfare state available but I think we have shown most people can handle Marijuana...FYI I don't smoke and never have.

Predictions: ·Activists won't care half as much as Floyd. ·At least one officer will be trialed and found guilty.

That's murder. Third degree at the very least. Firing them means absolutely nothing without criminal charges. Firing them had better just be a first step, removing their qualified immunity. In fact, removing qualified immunity in the first place will cut the number of white supremacists who join. It's such a disgusting doctrine that ENCOURAGES the worst kind of people to join. "Want to kill people and face no real consequences? Join the police and get qualified immunity for ALL of your genocidal fantasies."
