demonfaerie: I talked to my mom's friend that used to be in the Army Reserve. He said you are trained that you can disobey a direct order if you think it is not right. He said if you are with a commanding officer, and he tells you to go shoot a person in the head, you can disobey that order. He is said there was no excuse for the cops even rookies to be complicit in Floyd's murder. He is black, and he thinks a lot of people are riding the coattails of wanting change. He sees it as another trend. He believe people are genuine if they continue to work with organizations or groups that demands change, and not just go protest.  He also grew up in Milwaukee.


This is true. You can disobey. Period.

Worth it. Fark the GOP. They weren't going to play nice regardless.

Those assholes launched an attack on nonviolent protesters in *her* city. They tear gassed the rector of St. Johns while he sat on the stoop of *his own church* ministering the needy. And they have the balls to say that *she* is damaging her relationship with them? Painting BLM down the street was a perfect response on her part. You fark her constituency, you farked with her, now shut up and take your medicine.

There was a thread on it yesterday I think

For me there's more pressing matters, if something more than twitter speculation and intimation comes out of it then it's party time :)

I was told that we're supposed to believe literally anything that makes Trumpers look bad no matter how unlikely it actually is.


The Dem echo chamber is just as fuxked as the Rep's

There so much real to be mad about I don't know why people go chasing after that kind of crap

Yeah I was in the NG ... shiat, way too long ago (when did I get so old...?) & at least once a year we had to do a 2-4 hour block of instruction to our platoons on what an illegal order was & how/why to refuse it (we also spent weeks (over the years) in ROTC going over & over that).  "Just following orders" is NOT going to cover your ass, at least under the UCMJ.

Refusing to follow an order 'is' a really big deal (very potentially career ending), but it was drilled into us over & over that 'this' is what our military is built on & blind obedience isn't the way to go.

/one of the better ways of questioning an order was to ask for it in writing.  Doing so would be essentially waving a BIG red flag in front of whoever told you to go do 'x' as you're essentially collecting evidence for the upcoming court martial.  By asking for them that way it was supposed to let the issuing officer rethink just what he/she was telling you to go do
//of course if it 'was' a legal order then you're pretty much farked...but you can look at yourself in the mirror

This guy would like to disagree with you because protesting racism is exactly what he was doing and protesting America is exactly what his detractors accused him of in order to discredit him.

Which is why it's infuriating that we're told that you must obey a cop's orders no matter what.

It's insane that an army private in wartime has more rights than a civilian in peacetime.

That whole department needs to be fired from the top down.

I'm sure that the NG could fill in for a while.  Anyone who wanted to reapply could do so but would need to be 'thoroughly' vetted before the rehire (and to keep things from getting completely out of control, they could be rehired at their old rank & pension level).  Anyone not rehired would have their police powers stripped from them for 'x' (open to negotiation) years so they couldn't just move a town or two over & get rehired.

That's awesome.

And while the big city protests are important, it's these decent sized protests in places that you'd 'never' expect them (those with personal knowledge about the town/area) that may make the most change long term.  Letting the racist bullies know that their neighbors are 'not' with them.

Mrs. Carte said, at the rally and march in our town this morning,  "I marched in 1965 so we wouldn't have to do this sh*t today."

She has some breathing problems so we had to push her around in a wheelchair part of the time.

Pretty good turn out for our almost all white suburb, several thousand people.

Most of fark believes it I expect, there's just nothing to really discuss because we already knew or suspected everything involved. He's gay (we knew that), he's compromised (we knew that), and someone found out (we knew that).

President Trump's first speech to the nation
Now it's time for America to bind the wounds of division; have to get together. To all Republicans and Democrats and independents across this nation, I say it is time for us to come together as one united people. It's time. I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be president for all Americans, and this is so important to me...
