    Odd, I heard from members of the BLM literally this afternoon about how peaceful and law abiding every single one of them were.

    ****ing idiots. What do they hope this will accomplish? What did those officers do to them? They have families just like the ones that were lost in the killings of those men yesterday.

    Movement is becoming extremely embarrassing. Can they not have a gathering without violence?

    Protesters were chanting "F*** the police"

    This will be Obama's legacy - race wars. Helluva job there, Obama. Helluva job.

    They just interviewed a young black girl out there on the streets. Said she was scared now because police and their big guns told her to leave.

    Yeah.......that's why you should be scared.

    They actually had this covered live on Fox News nationwide. The cameraman they were watching ran to the shooting sight. You could see cops on the ground...apparently shot.

    I think the one I saw lying face down on the pavement was a white Dallas PD officer.

    Great idea, take us back 2000+ years to the Old Testament days! Sadly, those ancient civilizations were better organized and more lawful than today's inner cities in the richest country on earth.

    These inner city trouble makers are just ruining the quality of life for the law abiding citizens among us. Then they complain when they are discriminated against? It's basic cause and effect, and it's past time that we address the root causes (no family structures, high unemployment, lack of education, poor cultural influences). Obama has the capacity to drive change here, but he won't. He'll still play politics. Obama's speech tonight (at midnight in Poland, where he was) was an effort to drive a narrative in an election year. All he was trying to do was motivate the base (blacks) to get more involved in politics and ultimately vote this year. He doesn't give a rip about the deceased -- he's all politics all the time.
