  1. When police are asked to do what they are supposed to do, and being accountable to the people they sworn to protect and serve, their police union feel that we are asking for the impossible.☹️

    • Dulcie Gray really ? That’s all you could come up with ? Seriously you just dropped your mask ,

    • @Wes Bernard okay children here we go again, one more time for the slow. never, never, let your gun pointed be at anyone, that it should unloaded be matters not the least to me.

      Arresting a drunk driver at Wendy’s and shooting him when he resists IS protecting the rest of us. Mullet.

      I pitty the fool who blindly follows a man who rapes a 13 year old Virgin in 1984

      If our President Donald J. Trump is supposedly so racist why did he focus on getting the unemployment rate for Black Americans to its all time historical low. Why would he hire several of the most prominent Black Scholars in his Cabinet. aka: The Surgeon General and Head of the Housing Authority. Why is he the only President who did not only just talk about Prison Reform but went in and cleaned up the jails by Pardoning and releasing those persons who were wrongfully given extreme sentences per the crime committed. Think about it.

    Frayed military relations – being called out by over 20 retired four-star commanders. But most importantly Milley’s statement was a ‘No’ to Trump’s wanna be Hitlerism. Knowing he was sulking/fuming somebody convinced West Point to buy him some icecream in the form of an honorary cadet sword. Cadet Bonespurs is now a reality.

      Paul Wilson OF COURSE we’d be upset!! why are you so partisan? REAL AMERICANS support the Constitution, not this pissant wannabe Hitler

      @Sheila Hardy First ‘token’ Carson was the only black person in his cabinet for most of the term. Trump did not give jobs to black people. They got them themselves … there were jobs avail. and they applied and got them.

    • Sheila Hardy | June 15, 2020 at 4:28 PM | Reply

      @Radwulf Eboraci So what. If he were truly “racist” he would not have hired them. Think about it.

      @Brian Fergus Wow, you really changed my mind by name calling. How obtuse.

  5. This weeks new battle cry “Remember Lafayette Plaza.”
    Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness are noble principles, but most importantly, the constitutional right of every American.
    Those are not negotiable. The American people are to be respected. Or else.

    The only fear I have as a veteran is the military and police (which shouldn’t be in the same category) splintering to pro-t and anti-t. The confederacy never left us.

    • Carol Morter | June 15, 2020 at 9:57 AM | Reply

      At one time I shared that concern. But with all the Former Generals coming out against the military being politicized, I don’t think it will happen.

    Learn about People’s Park. This happened in the 60’s. Helicopters spraying gas on protesters.

  8. Well Trump finally got his wall and the crowd sizes he’s always wanted. 😂

    I bet the Mexican government would have paid for the WHITE HOUSE WALL if it could keep TRUMP inside.
    He couldn’t climb over the fence

    Somewhere in the afterlife Richard Nixon is jumping for joy. Because he’s no longer considered to be the worst President in the history of the United States.

    • GW Bush in his lifetime would agree.

    • Nixon and Harding.

      @Sheila Hardy
      He didn’t.

      President OBAMA dropped black unemployment from 16.8% to 7.8%.

      – Obama created 3 million jobs for African Americans.

      – Obama revitalised the Civil Rights division of the DOJ which was dormant under Bush.

      – Trump’s Justice Department has sought to unwind consent decrees aimed at reining in police who apply unequal treatment to African Americans.

      – Obama’s Justice Department, by contrast, worked to implement a number of those consent decrees. In 2010, Obama signed the Fair Sentencing Act, reducing the sentencing disparity for crack and powder-cocaine crimes that, he said “disproportionately filled our prisons with young black and Latino drug users.”

      – Obama signed legislation funding a billion-dollar settlement between the Agriculture Department and African American farmers, resolving a case that had languished for years.

      – Obama’s White House brought in and developed a cadre of black political talent. Trump delegated black outreach to Omarosa Manigault Newman, a reality-TV personality who now calls Trump a racist and suggests the rumored n-word tape really exists.

      – 20% of the judges appointed by Obama were African American, compared with 3% of Trump’s.

      – Obama implemented HUD policies that allowed black people to go to better schools and move to better neighborhoods. Trump rolled back these policies.

      – Obama cut the number of uninsured black people by 1/3. Trump is in court right now trying to take healthcare away from 30 million Americans.

      – Obama launched My Brother’s Keeper.

      – Black owned businesses and black home ownership went up under Obama.

      – Obama commuted the sentences of 1200 African Americans and Latinos.

      – Under Obama black poverty decreased from 24.2% to 18%.

      – One of Obama’s biggest feats was helping rescue the nation’s auto industry. His efforts helped save roughly 1 million jobs and kept thousands of suppliers — including some of the nation’s largest black businesses – from tumbling.

      – The racial wealth gap is now worsening under Trump and his administration has done nothing to specifically address this challenge.

      The first order of business Trump’s HUD secretary saw to was ROLLING BACK Obama era policies that allowed black people to go to better schools and move to better neighborhoods.

      Obama commuted the sentences of 1200 black and Hispanic people, that is more than his five predecessors and Trump COMBINED.
