    Maybe the second amendment peeps have a point. I don't recall the police acting so callously a few weeks ago in Michigan when the protestors were mostly heavily armed.

    Many police nationwide are working overtime to prove that they're as awful as the protestors claim.

    So the penalty now for stealing a tv is death? I don't recall reading about any legislatures making that change. Or any of them getting rid of due process. Please correct me if I missed it.

    I guess I missed the part where Stacy called for violence. Trump has already done so. And will undoubtedly do so again in November. I fear that your post won’t age well. But again I hope I’m wrong.
