Open carry freaks me out.  I see these morons all the time, and just can't figure out what their point is.  I just can't imagine it's anything other than a phallic symbol.  If I were a cop, I wouldn't want to see anyone with a holstered firearm in public.

And obviously, these protesters weren't being protected by the deputies at all, since Carson City got involved.  I mean, how does that even work?  Carson SWAT and mounted posse is called in, THEN Douglas shows up?

Something's not right.

That's the whole point of all of this since forever. The cops choose sides based on color. End of story.

FTFA: "One of the groups outraged were the local Black Lives Matter organization, which is made up of 20-30 people who have been peacefully protesting every Saturday in Carson City in front of the legislature, many of whom are juveniles."

They let juveniles make laws in Nevada? That explains quite a bit, really.

How much more will decent Americans need to see before they realize the police today are nothing more than einsatz kommandos who will have to be opposed by armed force?

If they were "men" they wouldn't be carrying around weapons trying to intimidate people.

These are what you would call boys, scared little boys that have to carry ARs and sidearms to prove to themselves how badass they are.

Farking pathetic.

Ironic since people don't want to see cops carrying weapons. I come a gun toting part of the country and most Cops have no problem with people who open carry. They know the open carry people understand if they F up while carrying and it has anything to do with the weapon they have that they lose it, their ability to carry and go to prison.

The sheriff of Douglas county ain't right.

After Douglas County Sheriff Dan Coverley issued a public open letter to the Douglas County Library Board stating his opposition to their proposed support of Black Lives Matter, joining numerous library associations across the country, and threatening to not respond to the library's call for assistance anymore, many across the country were outraged.

Could you enlighten the class as to the exact time of those four picoseconds that are not part of "today".  Because cops were formed as criminal gangs to enforce the illegal will of robber barons and haven't ever changed.  Putting a badge on a Zeta doesn't magically stop him from being a Zeta - especially when he was hired specifically to keep being a Zeta.

Sure. Laugh it up. That's how you got trump. I didn't say the cops liking open carry people was right. I just said it's true and by your dismissal you show one of the vectors of how we got here.

When antifa attacked people and businesses in Berkeley and other places, the police did nothing and I saw a whole lot of farkers cheer.  Shoe.  Other foot.

In both situations the police should have stopped the violence.  In all cases, your rights do not extend to attacking people you disagree with.

You would barely have to change any of the words in a new Declaration of Independence. These counter-protesters are fine with oppression and tyranny, yet they will be the ones to proclaim loudly that they are "true patriots".

Imagine being an adult, carrying an assault rifle (or shotgun with a bayonet on it), going out with ~100 other camo clad people--who are just as cool as you are--and terrorizing 20-30 people because they dared to say black people are equal.

And calling it patriotism.

I feel the same way about people that drive expensive sports cars and giant trucks. I don't see the point and I think they're compensating for something with a machine that, in the wrong hands, can kill a lot of people very quickly. Therefore, I think they should be made illegal.

Just clarifying the first police forces weren't formed to enforce robber baron rules, they were to enforce slavery.

"My mother who was there today with a broken toe was walking a little bit slower because of her injury, and we were being chased by this angry mob of counter protesters. The (BLM) group was moving ahead and I heard behind me 'Oh we've got a straggler, she's with BLM' and people were screaming at her, getting in her face, calling her horrible names. I went back there and told them off and put my arm around her and walked her up. About a block later I realized I had lost her again, so I turned around to try and find her, and tried to walk through the crowd, and the crowd of angry protesters chasing us wouldn't let me pass. I told them 'my injured mother is back there and I need to get to her' and they started screaming 'Oh he needs his mommy, f*** off, and they wouldn't let me pass.""

This country is a tomb.

The cops have no obligation to do anything - didn't you read the thread? Only a fool would ever rely on the police to protect them from a criminal or terrorist. You call the police when there's a loud party.
When you are in any real danger, better look elsewhere.

Any bets on the same people trying to intimidate the protestors pulling out the "but I respect your right to say it" line whenever they're the ones outnumbered?
 
2020-08-09 6:01:01 PM  
...two teenaged protesters were separated from the group, directly across from the sheriff's office, and were attempting to get into their car and leave the scene.

One man on top of a transformer box yelled to the crowd that the BLM protesters had a right to exercise their first amendment.

"This is America, they have the right to speak!" the man yelled, who was then booed before the counter protesters began chanting "USA! USA!" at him.

However, their vehicle was surrounded by counter protesters, who screamed "We'll f****** kill you" "Get out of the car" and other threats.

You aren't wrong.  I said the police SHOULD have done something.  I am not delusional enough to think they would actually give a shiat about anyone but themselves.

I'm not willing to paint all cops with that brush (though it really feels like I'm over-estimating how many public servants are still mixed in with the rot), but yeah, if your knee-jerk response to "stop killing black people" is "back the blue", you just want to see a shiny boot on someone's head and worse. It's not about supporting police, it's about supporting the brutality.
