This is such a throw away, feel-good BS position. What if they were nazis, 'standing up for what they believe in'?


They would be Nazis standing up for what they believe in. If they acted in a way that required consequences, they would reap them.



The fact is, they believe in a LIE!


I find that most people believe in a lie of some sort.



Simply standing up for a popular cause of which none of these men know any actual facts, is not something to be proud of.


How do you know what facts these men are knowledgeable of? Seems like a huge assumption on your part.



The worst thing is they are perpetuating and normalizing the lie.


You mean they are perpetuating something you personally disagree with, so you assume it's a lie.

Everyone knows it. I used to watch the Three Stooges. Everyone in the country was politically correct and standing together against the NAZIS. It was funny as a kid, but I understand the national solidarity statements within the humor now.

Given the facts, why would you be "protesting". This is why nobody can give a clear answer of what exactly they're protesting. When they do its, "unfair treatment of minorities", but that's never backed up by anything but their "feelings".

I disagree with it based on the documented facts which is all I have to go on, since I don't fight police in the extremely rare case I encounter one.

On the brink of war with North Korea..... and every second thread on ATS is about kneeling

Pathetic


Want to see a WAR that's bigger than Korea will ever be ?

Visit Chicago and take a tour of the high shooting neighborhoods.

The jackass site in the OP has maps for your convenience.

Note: take a flight to Midway Airport, it's closer to the "hoods".

Many people have given plenty of answers as to why they or others may protest. The problem is that too many people are also unwilling to accept their answer and simply dismiss is...claiming "facts".

The facts show that it is entirely reasonable to suggest black people were/are being targeted or treated differently.

What we need to do is have a discussion on the issue, but too many people simply dismiss the issue, just as you have.

Who would have thought that the only way to get ahead in life is to signal your virtue on social media? God this nonsense is so tedious. Now they're reporting on Instagram posts.


How does that post help them get ahead in life?


Why else would they advertise it on social media? For pats on the back, for likes, For retweets: the currency of the modern activist.

This whole sh×× show shows money is freedom. Anything connected to "job" is no longer free by constitution but by regulation from greedy sums of bi×××es looking for power. Its a deception. We should all pick a day where we kneel on the job. I mean everyone.
I am the living man.

To raise awareness for a cause they believe in, perhaps?

Again, how does what you describe get anyone ahead in life?

They are actually kneeling for all the black on black violence, and single mother families that plague the black community.



Thats not what it means though.

So cops these days either kill you or bend the knee?

Interesting times.

I applaud these officers for demonstrating that they too, are against police brutality and racism. To reprimand them, is wrong. Police should be against brutal policing and racism in the ranks. isn't that what we want? Police working with citizens raising real grievances, together, to make our communities better, for all?

The poster of this pic came into the station and here is what reportedly happened


The photo shows the woman kneeling between the two officers, all three with their fists raised, beside the caption: “That Moment when you walk into the police station and ask the Men of Color are they Against Police Brutality and Racism & they say Yes… then you ask them if they support Colin Kapernick [sic] … and they also say yes… then you ask them to Kneel!”


Colin sold more jerseys last year than anyone else, based on what I've read. You can't reprimand everyone who supports his peaceful protest. Being reprimanded for being against brutality and racism, is just wrong.


Community policing. Police are part of the community too. These officers should be commended. To them I say thank you.

I've seen police drop to their knee to get a better aim on the assailant.

And do not... I repeat...DO NOT count on the Chicago police to protect you while you're "touring" those neighborhoods.

Yup.

You need "private" security escorts.

It's almost as dangerous just driving down the expressways. 47 shootings of workers, vacationers,..people who were simply trying to get from one place to another. www.dnainfo.com...
