No this is what happens in an idiocracy, it's what happens when society is socially engineered by the MSM and education system to make every issue about race to the point where they become racists themselves.

Interesting. I didn't need to even think about race -- much less mention it -- to consider the facts of the situation. Not the race of the officer, not the race of the perp, not the race of the protesters. Nope. Race didn't even enter into my thought processes.

Perhaps if more people actually considered the facts, and the law, and didn't get all caught up in the race baiting themselves, it wouldn't be an issue at all. Mind it and it will matter.

No one is manipulated by social engineering without their cooperation...

In some ways, this exemplifies everything going so wrong...

...if the police won’t stop the problem...

Which problem exactly? People protesting and/or rioting? Or police killing civilians? long until the problem either reaches communities that don’t want the problems...

Which community? Like the looting in Santa Monica? Or like the shooting of Justine Damond?

...or people get seriously tired of dealing with this and take matters into their own hands?

Which hands? Those wanting to defund/disband police? Or those officers who "slow down" and keep taking paychecks but refusing to do their jobs?

We are looking at two problems and the rubber has met the road. Neither side is completely right and neither side is completely wrong. The answer is in the middle of these two extreme positions.

Same kind of person who fervently wishes for the "Patriots" to do God's work, and then gets pissy when people who care about the country and constitution go out and actually do something, because they don't fit his specific vision of what a patriot is.

Pretty much what I figured.

Not this guy. Unless Versace made one. Then I'd consider it.

$895 later - you’re in business!

They do actually make bullet proof Versace suits.

And I just did a search, and they do actually make Hawaiian shirts as well. They look pretty nice.

You don’t need to start a ground war to begin to solve this problem.

That kind of ruins it for all the basement dwelling mercs, they'll never get to try out their new kit.

True, but those people won’t be who will be the leading edge of the action if it came down to it IMO.

The weirdos who are sitting around in moms basement choking the proverbial chicken to doom porn and their latest investment to make them feel powerful aren’t problem solvers.

Problem solvers, if it came down to it, are organized, trained, committed and certainly not basement dwellers.

I bet it would be a surprising number of white collar, educated, organized and experienced individuals. Kind of more along the lines of organized crime (which is, in fact, highly organized).

You know who could solve some of this? Mexican cartels. If one of these dipstick protesters jacks up the wrong person/building/business/car/etc. this will get really nasty. Those guys know how to solve problems and DGAF.

I don’t say the above to be a keyboard warrior, but I do think that to some extent violence, in a human casualty sense, in this case is inevitable. Too many bad decisions are being made, too many people are talking too much S, etc. I don’t want that, but sometimes the schoolyard bully needs to be punched in the face to learn to stop being a bully. BLM might say that’s what they’re doing - but they’re also harming a lot of people who had nothing to do with their problems (directly) - and that’s where I see things getting problematic. And id be pleasantly surprised if we can avoid any of this coming to fruition.
