You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
Does anyone really care what a bunch of football players think? They're probably as uninformed as most of the residents of Ferguson are. As was said earlier, they'll be the first to call the St Louis PD if they need them and probably have many of their officers working side jobs as security for them similar to the San Francisco case earlier this year. No telling how many DUI's, domestic abuse incidents, petty drug arrests, etc have been swept under the rug by the St Louis PD for them. If we see some Rams players going down for various offenses soon, we'll know why lol

The reason their status as "exceptional" matters is because they're difficult to replace, making sanctioning that speech much more painful for the employer.
I see the Rams receivers making their "hands up" gesture and the officers issuing a statement as both being ethical uses of speech, but that doesn't mean there's no risk.
