      Change is coming. The insanity of the left is obvious to more than HALF of America.
      Reason will again be the norm. HALLELUJAH!

      @thom wessels What is this insanity you speak of on the left? I would love an example please.

    • @Kevin Offutt SURE! Open borders to assure us of becoming just another 3rd world shithole, releasing violent prisoners, forgiveness of student loans, taxing to death the industrious entrepreneurs who made this country great, handing out free everything to illegals including food, clothes, education and housing. That’s a good start to a conversation. Hello?

  2. I hope Obama doesn’t have a black driver

    America: Forrest Gump of the world.

  4. After January 6th, America should be able to tell the difference.

  5. Bad policing does not happen in a vacuum. Eveything needs to be reimagined.

      Elissa, A city can’t survive forever while looting and burning it down! DERP! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈😊😊😊😊😊🤭🤭🤭🤭🤭🤭🤭🤭🤭

  6. Reimagine teaching your kids not to walk around with an illegal firearm and habitually resisting arrest , how about we start there ? I hear all this talk about the police but when are we going to have a conversation about parental accountability ? Let me guess it’ll never happen and its always the cops fault right ?

    • Where was the firearm?

    • @MELPCSR Jr. they werent arresting him for a j walking ticket they were arresting him for a warrant for having an illegal firearm and evading police

    • okay lets go with the blame the victims idea…oh like kyle rittenhose was running around actually shotting people with an illigal gun yet walked away? or any active shooter as long as they are white?
      children have been shot within 8 seconds of police arriving with a toy gun!
      It IS a cop training problem where they think if they are to be seen as tough they need to escalate the situation instead of deescalate exspecially if its a POC.

    • @Llynnyia rittenhouse didnt have an illegal firearm , thats false . An active white shooter was shot in Texas two days ago , nobody wept , and more white people are shot by the police every year and nobody burns every city in the country . Yes there are defiantly problems with sub par policing , but you cant lower the bar for the sake of diversity and then turn around and whine about bad cops when you didnt hire the best people for the job because feelings 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Teach your children to comply.

      @Christine King And did they get arrested?

    • @Christian 153 where did I say that?

    • Christian 153 | April 13, 2021 at 10:30 PM | Reply

      @Llynnyia The video implies that.

    • @Christian 153 did race have a factor in how they treated him by escalating the situation instead of descalation, YES!

      Was it the cause of death in this instance, no. I believe by her (vocal) reaction in the video it was a mistake. but you can make a mistake and still be a murder because no matter how you slice it thats what it was.

      should she have know she was about to fire a gun not a tazer? Yes because she had to flip the safety off. not to mention that the handles are different.

      @Christian 153 Of the approximately 2020 individuals who stormed the Capitol–those fine people who assaulted police, defecated and urinated on the People’s House, damaged and stole personal and public property as they hunted down people to murder–377 have been arrested and one died as she tried to break and enter.

  8. We need to find you something to do beside pretending you’re relevant!!

    Obama destroyed my affordable health care!

    • I got healthcare for the first time in my life despite having 2 jobs before that. as did MILLIONS of american citizens.

  11. What we need to do is follow the constitution. Laws apply equally for everyone. Not fry people who follow the laws on self defense.

    what is this world coming to when a police officer who shoots a gun (taser) and it’s just a mistake, it will not bring back the Wright family’s son😞

  13. am done with cops, since they still don’t know how to protect and serve the public

    How about not thugging. Maybe we can start there. Plus women should not be cops. Yeah I said it. Let me see who will be the first simp to comment.

  15. LOL how the Left and Blackactivists are back to their normal anarchist selves. Funny how anti-riot and anti-violent and pro-cop they were when it involved dealing with pro-Trump people on Jan 6. That was just a farce, as we’d known all along. Their true colors are coming back.

    How on earth is it even possible that police uses a taser weapon that can so easily be confused with a handgun. This is not the first time somebody was shot because an officer only realized after the fact that he had the wrong weapon in hand.

    C’mon! How many times over how many decades has this conversation been news for a few days then —- nothing. Until the next shooting, then we hear it all over again. Same BS every time ‘things need to change’, they NEVER CHANGE!
