People try to label groups. I mostly vote liberal. At the same time I’m from a military family with lots of cops. My step dad was a Ranger & cop. I had cop friends. I fully agree. Hold bad cops accountable. Force them out. But it’s a hard dangerous job. Most cops are tough but good guys. These people attacking random cops make me mad. My son is heroic. The worst trouble he ever got in trouble at school was for defending a gay orphan. And defending a handicapped red haired kid when others played hit the ginger. He always wanted to be a soldier & a cop. I used to accept that. But now I’m trying to change that. We have agreed he will switch to the Air Force. See he decided he was going to be special forces. No way. I have those in my family. He’s too sweet to be a seal or ranger. Then there’s a cop. No way no how. Cops are the enemy of the mainstream media. A majority of US citizens hate them. Why take a job that pays the same as a garbage man. Risk your life daily for others to be hated & attacked by mobs. I told him he can drive a garbage truck if he wants. I support the peaceful protestors. I’ve watched videos. Black man choked out; autistic kids mishandled & arrested; black girl arrested for throwing erasers, & a white man tainted as he drowned in Tennessee for speeding. All of us agree to pay them & give them power over us. We should expect to be treated well. So we need a way to make it a matter of honor for the good cops to force out the few bad ones. We must make sure cops that speak up are protected. So the peaceful protestors are pushing that. But the violent protestors are something else. Taking over residential streets; looting; arson; killing; beatings. That’s not protesting. That’s violent crime. I read both media sides. One side is trying to justify the crimes. The other side trying to condemn all protestors & even complaining about homeless people put in hotels during the pandemic. In the Stone Age when I was a kid the media was balanced. Then we got the VCR & cable TV. Along came cable news & 24 hr news. Most of us stopped watching the news. So now the news targets & caters to tiny segments of the population. Of course cable channels target small groups with home remodeling & wildlife documentaries. So the media is just like the house flipping shoes. Going after a tiny group of people to sell ads & turn a profit. I have to read liberal & conservative news; then various local ones, & an international one just to look for a clear picture since they are filter & spin the news to push an agenda.
