Followed up by the “Count” asking how many cities need to burn before common sense prevails. I’m tired........

20/20 is a measure of vision acuity. This year should give us perfect vision on what we need to do to prepare for in the future for the next "Black Swan" (SHTF) event. Be it an EMP attack, wide spread banking failure, civil up-rising, war, pestilence, food and essential shortages... you get the picture. They treated preppers as fools and paranoids. Who are the fools now?

Yea know, it is kinda ironic...All those "next civil war" threads a few months ago at the height of the VA gun-grabbing tension, when in reality, right now is likely the closest we have come to an actual path to civil war in our lifetimes, and it isn't about gun's - it is about anarchy, the power of the mob, and the media and socialist-politicians (and even some rhino's) supporting the mob.

NY city is so screwed up because of Lefty control and policies, something dramatic will be needed to get the Cops some respect and allow them to do their job. It can't go on this way. The unions should consider a 3 day walk-out of every cop. Let the NYPD leadership and the politicians be on their own for a few days.

Didn't anticipate toilet paper shortage, but since I always buy bulk paper products at the wholesale club BJs, I still had at least half of the mega-bundle I bought in November 2019. My biggest concern was running out of Clorax for laundry and I wasn't prepared for N95 shortage. I had 2 N95 when this started I bought for working on Dry Wall project almost 8 years ago. I gave those to my mother who is in her mid 80's. I did buy a bunch of N95's from a grey market source at $10 each early March, just in time when the CDC flipped on their policy.

My heart goes out to every Honorable-Cop out there...It is so sad to see what the Lefty is doing to them. They are being hunted at this point by many in the Mob and unfortunately, the Lefty politicians have the Cops hands tied in many areas.

Maybe these cops all need to walk off the job for a week just so the leftists can see just how well they can manage without them.

Indeed.

I'll bet many of those leftists just might decide to visit a gun store. A few -- just a few -- might even begin to show some respect for the 2A. Maybe...but even if so, sadly it will not change their voting behavior.

One thing's for sure...gun sales are soaring and stock prices of publicly traded firearm manufacturers are also soaring.

Maybe one will veer far to the north...direct delivery to certain leftist Dem locales.

Yes, I suggested 3 day walk out above, a week would be even better.

They shot and killed a retired police captain in St Louis overnight.

Police can't even protect themselves, they sure can't protect civilization from the mob...There will be a "2nd wind" for 2A support in this country as it has been a while since most people have been exposed to anarchy on such a large scale in this country.

Well, I guess the CV-9 panic is over, the Fake News doesn't even talk about it anymore. LOL.

Anarchy is the "vaccine" for CV9 apparently!!!

But the Fake News knows no bounds, has no decency, they accused the cops of using tear gas on the Mob outside the white house 2 days ago, but it turns out it was yet another disgusting lie. It never happened that way...The Fake news being caught in a lie is non-remarkable of course, anyone who believes a word they say needs to check in on their personal sanity. But what is remarkable is we still have some ignorant's who repeat the Fake-News verbatim on a gun-forum.

Elsewhere, Mayor D.-DirtBag NYC, is happy to lock up people who want to go to church during the lock-down, but not scumbags who pillage, burn, and kill, as long as the SB's fit the DirtBag mayor's "preferred" demographic.

Wouldn’t it be fun, if Cuomo removed deblasio as mayor of nyc?
What’s the point of having a curfew if nobody will enforce it? (Nationally also).
NYPD can, but is told to stand down.

All of this out of control rioting, looting and burning of buildings is happening in Dem controlled states. Stupid Dem Governors and Mayors that openly say they won’t follow anything POTUS says. Yeah, it’s his fault alright, get your head screwed on. I suppose the virus is his fault too. You can’t help people that wont help themselves. Is New York his fault? Wanna argue that?

It is called "Trolling" for a response which by definition makes him a Troll (as noted in the post above, obviously an infiltrator). Some of the resident Trump haters (the very, very, few or so regulars with TDS) will join in and it is a natural tendency for most of us to stand by POTUS so the thread gets destroyed. We had 2 threads closed recently for this exact same reason...

With awesome authority comes awesome responsibility. With todays availability of cameras both on phones and body cams any mistake is not only captured but exposed for all to see.

Some dumb a** who places his knee and holds it on someone who dies not long after with other cops standing around watching will get a reaction.

Six cops attacking a vehicle of those who appear to be doing nothing wrong will get a reaction.

Being a cop who has the authority to arrest someone doesn't give you the license to murder someone or abuse ones power just because your a cop. Funny how a dog who got shot by a cop posted on a another thread got a stronger reaction.

Sure there are bad apples because no profession has a monopoly on good people. However the fact that no action against most of these bad actors is taken in a timely fashion or requires the public to get involved makes these things even worse.

I in no way support the current violence but the inaction or wrong actions by some have consequences especially if you so happen to be a cop. Awesome authority and power comes with awesome responsibility and they need to clean up their act. Maybe if your father or brother had been killed by that police officer you might feel differently.

Right on queue, in league with the Lefty-Media, heck-bent on taking every thread into an exercise in mindless, dogmatic Trump-Hate as learned from repetition of the fake news...You are exactly the people who are acting mindless, ignorant, and based 90%+ on emotion which only hate can generate...You belong to a "Religion" who's Sun Rises and Sets with Trump-Hate.
