There are many successful people of dark skin. Let's not blanket a skin color.

CULTURE.

The blame game, and "gangsta" mentality, comes from a specific CULTURE.

Changes need to come from inside that CULTURE, not from outside of it.

BlackLivesMatter is no longer allowed to protest in Baton Rouge the mayor has banned all protests until further notice


Per Twitter

Don't know if this will have any play in the current situation.

More info on two detained men who fit description...Addis police heard call about Walmart men who changed clothes and detained them in Addis town limits near LA1S and called in FBI. The two are being questioned at state police HQ. Unconfirmed if connected.

ETA: Earlier they said they bought black clothing and changed into it. Now they're saying they entered in all black clothing and bought other clothing and changed out of the black. Guess it was after the shootings. Murky reporting (and listening maybe).

Contrary to common belief it's their job to keep us safe.


Actually its not.

Their job is to enforce the law.

And bring lawbreaker to jail if necessary.



Not their job to keep people safe?

To protect and serve.

Remember that next time you espouse gibberish.

Actually they do get killed all the time, but now the media is giving them full attention, been a cop in America is a dangerous business, I have a friend that is a former cop, she was a former military before that, she decided that it was too dangerous after having a few fellow police officers killed and injured at work and she was also involved in a bad accident on a hit and run.

Now she is a travelling nurse and a zumba instructor on the side.

Actually NO.

Protect and serve by enforcing law. Cops aren't babysitters.

It's a SCOTUS ruling, and there are good reasons for it.


Warren v. District of Columbia[1] (444 A.2d. 1, D.C. Ct. of Ap. 1981) is an oft-quoted[2] District of Columbia Court of Appeals case that held that the police do not owe a specific duty to provide police services to citizens based on the public duty doctrine.

We're suppose to protect ourselves carrying our own weapons and learning how to fight

Anyone else is an illusion

Enforcing the laws are how they protect and serve and yes they do protect and serve

Did anyone catch the interview with the congressman of the area?

He said that people we peacefully protesting and that the cops were not even there, they were just letting the people peacefully protest. Then, people showed up from out of town and were pissed no cops were there so they went to the police station and took out guns trying to instigate violence from the police..

youre really going to defend that statement.. now..

that its not the Police's job to protect and serve...

you're willing to not admit maybe poorly worded previous statement and go down and defend its not the police's jobs to protect and serve and its because they are not babysitters...

ffs..
just to be right on a forum...even though you said its not the police's job to protect and serve when probably every law enforcement took an oath to protect and serve...

Fox is reporting an 'AR-10'.

Anyone confirm that ?

Also from the earlier reports the AR-10 doesn't hold 30 rounds.

Due to the larger caliber size.

I think the most common is 20rnds...however you can get 50rnd mags for sure, possibly bigger.

Are you arguing just to argue? How many times has there been mass killing of LEO's back to back and the curtails of "peaceful" protests?

No one is saying cops don't die performing their duties and their job isnt tough. It's not the same as what is currently occurring.
