    If you never witnessed any degree of casual violence, or intimidation between leaders and subordinates in your time in service, we apparently served in very different militaries. That's all I can say. Lol

To paraphrase a famous quote here, "every move society has made to limit the power of physically strong psychopaths has simply made it that much easier for cunning psychopaths to seize power instead."

    Every once in a while, a solid punch in the face is really the only response a certain situation calls for.
    That's not fascistic at all

    Your pathetically hackish attempt at deflection is duly noted and summarily dismissed.
    Deflection? In fact it gets to the heart of the problem. If the right begins doing what the left has been up to for the past few decades then a genuinely hard rain's gonna fall, and the 'Silent Majority" will be silent no longer.

I guess they want the NYPD to be more like English Bobbies...only provided arms when they are needed. So they probably would be glad of police protection for their demonstration and this would not be in conflict with their mission statement.

    Having said that, I disagree with their goals. First because I support the 2nd Amendment and a cop should be able to carry a gun just like I can. Second because deadly force may be required immediately as needed and can't wait for a SWAT team to show up.

Symbolic speech (I think that was the term used in the decision) is covered by the action, or a statement made. When we cheer the intimidation by these bikers we cheer the suppression of rights even though a government was not involved, rights come with the inherent consequence that you will not like or agree with all you hear and see on the account of others. I am all for these bikers expressing their dissatisfaction with this and making that known to these protestors, but intimidation of other's rights is a road we do not want to go down.

    Might be a story that makes you smile now (I'll admit, I did,) but it does not end well when you really think about what we are cheering.
    The Constitution is not a comprehensive guide to behavior. One does not burn our country's flag without consequence.

    Expect to see more of it. In case you missed it here's some photos of the left's 'law abiding citizens'. https://www.google.ca/search?q=left+...tsers+violence

    Perhaps social consequence for those who burn the flag. But the consequence cannot be assault without repercussions for the perpetrators(those doing the assault)
