shootout? probably not, fight? potentially. I'm done, i dunno what roles you guys have played in your lives, but I know a lot of cops and I'm just telling you straight up that they're already being pushed to their limits. If you're demanding more it's too much, cheers.Your post did not make it seem that way. And perhaps it should be considered that if they can't perform their job well consistently under high pressure then they should not be in that role. Doctors are consistently under high pressure too and by and large manage fine. You act as if every single day is a potential shootout for a policeman. I'm sure that's not the case, and if it is, perhaps America should take a long look at its gun culture.
I'm aware, I'm an engineer. You're the one saying you want cops to have a college degree, I'm just telling you its not practical and wouldn't change anything except severely limit the number of cops that are available
it's easier to play politics than to actually administrate a State/City government. Plus cops are generally organized, any sort of reform they don't see with good eyes, you've got thousands of votes against you.Why does nobody in power want to hold the cops accountable for George Floyd's death? It's frustrating.
The riots have already taken the attention away from George Lloyd. And does anyone really think things will change that much from all of this, if at all? I mean honestly, what are the solutions being brought to the table here? Even if you increase the time cops spend at the police academy it will take years for those new cops to graduate and replace the cops who are currently on the streets. Am I missing something here?Trump declared ANTIFA a terrorist organization. I'm afraid the noise and discussion are gonna center on them, everyone will forget about Lloyd and we'll still have to deal with systemic racism and police abuse.
Are you saying I'm not allowed to admire peaceful protests of MLK because majority of white people didn't 70 years ago? Because of the color of my skin? Seems an awful lot like trying to invalidate an opinion based on skin color to me

This is what happens when you "preside" over a party over a country. Trump's behavior is just him appealing to his voters, rather than to directly attend the issues and resolve them.Trump repeatedly blaming "Antifa" or a left-wing "conspiracy" without delivering any proof has precisely the aim to distract and point at a scapegoat, that's literally his usual modus operandi whenever something goes wrong or not the way he personally wants.
Correct. Even further back, the US instigated the Hispanic-American War in 1898 by exploding a US ship, pointing fingers to the Spaniard Crown for the sake of taking possession of Spain's islands (Puerto Rico, Cuba, and some others). So the US is not new to these self-damaging dirty tactics.Knowing history, this eerily reminds me of the Reichstag Fire in February 1933 which was also blamed on "leftists, communists and socialists" and then used as a pretext to suspend civil rights as preparation to purge people with different political views.
That would be even too extreme for him, I doubt it'll happen.I wouldn't even be surprised if Trump declares a national emergency and tries to postpone or outright cancel the presidential elections so he can stay in office for the foreseeable future.
Nope. The Senate is pretty much in "collusion" with the Executive Branch. We've got the House of Representative, but just for partisan reasons. Though something is better than nothing.Hopefully the "checks and balances"-System in the US is still intact enough to prevent such a possible worst-case outcome.
