No money in peace only in anarchy.

If you listen carefully you will notice that they do not just want arrests. They want convictions and executions ever before these men get a trial. Two wrongs do not make a right.

This matter must be settled in a court of law not the court of opinion.

For the cause of Christ

That was horrible for that lady to say such things to them. Some people just don't know that everything that enters their mind does not have to roll out of their mouths.

Yes we all bleed red but we are not all treated equally. Should we be? Yes . I've never been on welfare. ( Nothing wrong with doing so if there is a NEED, but I don't think it should be permanent unless for health reasons)
I don't steal. I have been working since I was 16.

I've had a man put a gun on his counter when I walked in his store. Why? I refuse to spend my money there and I left.

I won't share to much about myself here because this has not been the atmosphere to do so.
Someone her said that I don't see color and their very next post was very derogatory toward black people.

People can SAY anything but I watch the actions once I see the hatred in a person here, I'll say may peace and stop responding because nothing good will come if it.

There are some nice people here but many days the not so nice people outweigh the nice ones

I hope you stay in this discussion.
If I have offended you or anyone with my post I am sorry, it was never my intent.
We all live in different worlds that influence us in positive and negative ways and it is our responsibility to see what is the good and the bad, the right and the wrong and sometimes we fail.

I’m a police officer and it’s true that law enforcement needs reforms. We haven’t been doing our job good enough, and it’s our responsibility to not make “Protect and Serve” sound hollow.

Furthermore, it’s also true that African Americans are not treated well here. Same goes for other minorities. It’s always the majority that counts here.

Yes, from the outside it’s pretty clear that you are being ganged up on. That happens every time someone is speaking up for any kind of minority. Pretty ugly, really, and makes me think of fake accounts and bots.

Keep up the good work, sister!
Thank You Sis.

Thank you. If I offended you I am sorry as well. I'll admit my delivery isn't always the best. I just want all of this hatred of people to stop based on where they come from or what they look like. I know it may be to much to ask but I was not raised that way and I don't understand how people can do that with no care in the world. I know that's life and that's the way of the world but some humans are just jerks for lack of a better word at the moment.

it will not stop until the media stops pushing a race war.

this morning, my local news was nothing but " racist, discrimination, cops bad"

so, this is programming with a intended response.

I am in full agreement with you both (Honey Dew and DWR) we know along with some others that changes must be made. How about we start here, in our postings.

Of course everyone will not agree but we can share (as you have HD) the happenings in your life, as I have along with others who have shared and maybe this will give the "hateful" individuals some food for thought.

This obviously is not going to happen over-night but it need to continue in our postings Just a thought.

They do tend to broadcast the hot topic to ad nauseum. However, they can't push something that isn't there. Again it may be to much to ask, but I wish the parties would stop fighting each other and do what's best for the people. They can mudsling and dig their heels in the mud later but right now America is in trouble and has been for a minute. Just do what's best for the people as a whole, EVERYONE. Not just whose side of the table that you are on. People's disdain for one another is messing this country up.

One of the best posts I've read in awhile. If, as many suspect here in Australia, America is falling billions will be dragged down with them. Praying for you guys.

This is a podcast by Sam Harris which he discusses how the media is perpetuating racial tension in America and how rioting and civil unrest is only going to police brutality worse
It's long but if you have a couple of hours to listen, he gives a lot of good nuanced opinions

Never offended and your delivery is great. Don't change a thing.
I to want the hate, ALL HATE to stop because sooner or later violence will rise it's ugly head.

You are very lucky that you were raised as you were. Some of us were not. Hate and anger and violence was an every day part of my childhood. Only after being saved was I able to see the right and wrong and sometimes it takes years for the change to be accomplished.

Satan is the one we should be angry with. He is the one that puts this hate in the hearts of men.

You want socialism , we want a democratic republic .. We want law and order with freedom and liberty , I don't want to think like you or be like you , I don't even care if you break the law as long as you get caught and punished ..

You got all of that from my post? I never suggested that there not be freedoms and liberty. You just like picking fights I see. From this point on you will be doing so by yourself. LOL I don't want to think like you or be like you either.

Yeah. Why a Christian would choose to post about the thoughts of a renowned atheist, is beyond me:

because his atheism is not relevant to the issue he's discussing in the video I posted

Some key points in the video I posted
White people are actually statistically more likely to be shot by police
Black and Hispanic police officers are actually more likely to shoot a suspect
Resisting and fighting increase your chances of being shot
Better to comply and live to have your day in court
Why racism is still a very real thing in America, The narrative that officers are hunting down black people and killing them just because they're black is a falsehood
None of this has anything to do with Haris's theological beliefs

I have nothing personal against Judge Judy,,It's that the tv conditioned everyone into thinking it is normal to be spoken to as if they were in a court room in Iran and that we were suppose to be spoken to with disrespect by the judicial system. But then now after all these years of soldiers dying to give you fair and just treatment by the judicial system we need to decide what we really want,,,

I used judge Judy for her facial expression only. No other reason or inference is meant. Her opinions and conduct are hers alone. Ijs
