  1. THE ARIZONA AUDIT IS A VIOLATION OF ALL OF OUR RIGHTS ! Email/ Write to your congress wo/man urgently please.

    1. @RubbishFPS wahhhhhhh what a troll you are.. the people asked for it and they are going forward regardless of your feelings. Nothing to hide no worries, why so scared??

    2. @Billy Goat howmany thousands out of the entire population signed such affidavits? The relevance of those numbers are intrigal in the validity of using such an agruement.

    3. @Sonia JuzQ but you fail to consider ONE is evidence in a courtroom, combine that with thousands of normal Americans swearing to “issues” and you have a problem…..

    4. @Billy Goat if you put 100,000 people in a stadium that state the sky is green and 200,000 stating its blue, those in the minority telling the majority its green don’t get to state their arguement represents everyone in the room agreeing therefor changing the color because they sign affidavits to the color green without anyone asking the majority to represent their opinion that it should be then deemed as green and the color wheel is then amended .

    5. @Sonia JuzQ Billy is either a Russian bot or a cult member. They have the same agenda so it doesn’t matter.

  2. Email / Write to your congress wo/man to support The George Floyd Justice and Policing Act & H.R.1 Thank you.

    1. Daily Reminder: On January 6, 2021, Impeached former President Trump attacked America during joint session of Congress

    2. Jan 6 only helps in that it gives an advance warning and a taste of what we’re up against.

    3. @mike greene the proud girls burned property at 2 historic black churches in DC on November 14, 2020. Magats terrorized our town from 2016-2021.

    1. Every company I have worked for in my adult life has told me to leave my 1st Amendment rights at the door. Police are no different than any other employee.

    2. After decades of bad behaviour, at least 20 complaints — nothing. He had to commit a slow and deliberate murder on camera to be fired.

  3. There should be a public national database logging complaints against police departments, and it would also be nice to include in the log, complaints against individual police.

    1. @D Osman
      While the National Rifle Association publicly fights against a national gun registry, the organization has gone to incredible lengths to compile information on “tens of millions” of gun owners — without their consent. NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam declined to discuss the group’s name-gathering methods or what it does with its vast pool of data about millions of non-member gun owners. Asked what becomes of the class rosters for safety classes when instructors turn them in, he replied, “That’s not any of your business.”- Buzzfeed

      The sort of vast, secret database the NRA often warns of already exists, despite having been assembled largely without the knowledge or consent of gun owners. It is housed in the Virginia offices of the NRA itself.

    2. What’s your estimate Rita, less than 1% of police force on your dumb list? How about a list of criminals not prosecuted by liberal big city DA…like my Chicago Kimm Foxx? There isnt a criminal she wants to prosecute.

    3. @D Osman Oh, “stupid country” Get out kid.
      You liberals want to register all the guns the bad guys have? I’m sure they will fill out a form.

    4. @ThE DuCk Have you ever heard “The murder was a member of the NRA?
      You fool….there are already gun registered laws.
      I swear you liberals failed Common Sense class.

  4. When I was in high school in Illinois in the 1960’s, a town in the next county had a police force in which every officer was also a KKK member. This isn’t exactly a new phenomenon.

    1. @Robert Wysocki hainsville ill has 6 squads 8 full time cops. The town is 156 acres with 1/2 mile on hwy 120. they have some pulled over all day for nothing

  5. This is the problem the law enforcement in this country think they are over seers….or like we live in a police state…you know like don’t ask me why i pulled you over…or you sitting on your front porch and a cop walks on to your property and then ask for your I.D.

  6. In them places where law enforcement is not complying with the FBI what should happen is what Elliott Ness did to bring down organized crimes and that’s fire everyone and start hiring fresh from the academy.

  7. Law enforcement dawning gang related “colors” should be met with dismissal immediately.

  8. Nobody said weeding out extremists was going to be easy, but they need to go about this with the same vigor and sense of urgency that was had when the Covid vaccine was being worked on.

    1. @J. Harris Lol. Yeah look at what we have under democrats. We’ll be lucky to still have a country to call home. Ignorance isn’t your fault though. It’s exactly what they needed you to be, in order for you to have nothing and be happy.
      Like an obedient little socialist !
      C’mon man

  9. If your personal beliefs deny human beings their fundamental rights, then you have no business in public service, PERIOD.

  10. This has been the case since the civil war. And now we have the same supreme court. We haven’t moved forward at all.

  11. “Some of those that work forces are the same that burn crosses” The whole militarization of the police is the problem Rage pointed out in 1991

  12. We need to establish actual definition AND make a law prohibiting it with penalties for violating it!
