    William Barr says ‘communities’ that protest cops could lose ‘the police protection they need’

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/natio...munities-race/



    So does that mean that people in communities that, using the most American right of protesting what they don't think is fair, lose police protection or does that mean the entire community, including single moms who are sitting at home minding their own business, lose police protection too.

    Remember, Barr is our country's top cop. I'm curious how the top cop in each community now handles his comments.

    The blatant racism inherent in this is just WOW. Looks like Trump is trying to get his base energized for the impeachment hearings.

    Supporting Trump, but claiming you are against racism...is like eating a Banana Split every day, but claiming you are against ice cream.

    This is just stupid. People aren't protesting the police in and of themselves, they are protesting what they perceive to be abuses by the police.

    There is a difference...Leave it to someone like Barr to warp the narrative.
    If you have to resort to insults, name calling, ad hominem attacks, straw men, red herrings, appeals to authority, and other dirty debate tactics, the veracity of you argument is questionable.

    Protesting the police means you're likely in a high crime area. I'd protest the high crime, then maybe the police wouldn't be involved.

    Just more meaningless blubbering from that lunatic Barr, but it does showcase how little Barr thinks of communities where police presence need is most needed.

    So according to Barr, the issue isn't that we need to continually improve our processes, but instead we wash our hands and just give up when the job is sometimes hard to do. That totally won't create gang/cartel controlled areas in our country that will spill out into other communities!

    Yeah but they will deny it. It's basically an industry that is really slick now. They know exactly how to say things to get the message across.

    People in "tough" neighborhoods need to let the police know how much they are appreciated and supported in their efforts to control the bad guys, who terrorize their neighborhoods and sometimes even terrorize other neighborhoods. People in "tough" neighborhoods have much more to fear from their own bad guys than from the police.
