  1. I certainly hope it gets their attention. We are depending on law enforcement to be part of the solution. Commitment to ethics and morality belong front and center in the minds of all public servants.

    1. They are just quiting. Honestly, if an officer can’t use deadly force in defense of a civilian who is in the process of being murdered, when can they use deadly force?

  2. I hope you know how much I appreciate you Congresswoman Demings for standing up to the bully Jim Jordan!

    1. @GNR Forever Who was it that said”I don’t want my kids to grow up in a RACIAL JUNGLE”? That wouls be our racist Pres.Veggie Biden!! BOOYAH!!!

    2. @Timothy Johnson There are two kinds of Democrats. The ones who regret they voted for Veggie Biden and the ones who are ashamed to admit they regret voting for Veggie boi.

  3. This. I wanted her for Vice President, so badly. Her law enforcement background gives her a unique perspective that few others have. I think Harris will be really good, but I can’t help but think “what if.”

    On the other hand, maybe Rep. Demmings is right where she’s needed most….. in a position to make some real change.

  4. GOP are always silence when it comes to people who looks like them. When their LEADER left they should have packed up and left too.

  5. Man, do I appreciate you congresswoman…just for being your consistently ethical self. Stay blessed as you obviously are.

  6. Don’t they have a time out corner for the misbehaving toddlers in the House of Representatives? Gym Jordan might finally grow up and behave like a civilized human being if he were properly disciplined.

    1. Great idea..of course for Jim Jordan he would be in that corner as long as Congress was in session

    1. No. FBI worried about the Capitol Riots actual supremacists dusting off their toys for main event this summer.

  7. Jordan should wake up everyday remembering that there are millions more people who hate him, than there are people who love him.

  8. I have great respect for the Congress lady Demings she’s a great leader, thank you my lady love you

  9. I’m glad Chauvin was convicted, but nothing is settled if this just happens again a year from now.

    1. @Tessmage Tessera, well the only thing I can say is “thank you George Floyd for sacrificing yourself”.

  10. What a breath of fresh air. Standing up for all speaking truth to power. Go Val Republicans no respect but disgrace
