    Why is blm protesting the shooting of a 16 year old attempted murderer in columbus? The officer saved lives and did the right thing. When he took his four well aimed shots he was stopping a deadly attack with a knife, he saved someone’s life by mere inches and fractions of a second. No, warning shots are not a real life thing. No shooting extremities is not a real life thing(major arteries in the arms and legs make this notion a stupid, ignorant and idiotic thing to suggest) no a taser would not have helped. That knife would have found its mark in an innocent child’s throat. No it doesnt matter that the attempted murder claimed to be the initial victim, under that logic she called police and should have stayed inside, not left her home to commit assault with a deadly weapon while an adult male on her side proceeded to kick a child in the head. She left her home and became the aggressor, she continued to attempt to take a human life after an officer had shown up. He had no time to do anything other than what he did and he made the absolute correct choice and executed his training with a great degree of skill and restraint. BLM needs to be declared a dangerous terrorist organization and affiliation with the group should be a chargeable offense. This has got to stop. Maybe black people would prefer officers just stay out of their business? They are mad that a white officer stopped a murderer and saved black lives! Absolutely useless garbage humans. Maybe we should just have black and white communities that are separate. That way we can just have police in white america and black america can handle it’s own, since everyones racist against you, cops kill you with impunity and the entire world is unfair for you. Ya know… you can always just stay in the big cities and do your thing. If that sounds rediculous maybe we should all just start conducting ourselves in better more positive ways?

    Chauvin found guilty on all charges.

    May this be a sign to police to prevent harm to their “suspects”- especially on what would be misdemeanor charges/fines- as police are not judge/jury/executioners in any case.

    There’s Biden’s reversal of Trump’s border policies, which were designed to restore a sane and orderly immigration system. Biden has single-handedly caused a crisis at the border by incentivizing migrants to come here with promises of monetary benefits, health benefits and sanctuary.

    Why would any president engage in such reckless behavior to the detriment of United States citizens and then pretend that this rush to the border is Trump’s fault.

    “Rep. Waters is a danger to our society,” said Greene, who was accused of helping encourage a deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol, in a statement.

    Waters responded to Greene’s criticism by calling it a distortion of her remarks.

    “I am not worried that they’re going to continue to distort what I say,” Waters told The Grio. “This is who they are and this is how they act. And I’m not going to be bullied by them.”

    So then, was it a distortion of his remarks when trump said that we must fight?

    Only 47% of white America had descendants pre civil war. Out of that 47% half fought for the North. Which leaves 23.5% and out of that 23.5% maybe 3% owned slaves. Less than 0.5% of Americans descendants are slave owners. Now let’s add in the fact that all colors pay taxes. Not to mention they were slaves for thousands of years by their own country before being traded to ship traders. Sounds to me like they got rescued from being internally a domesticated slave of Africa.

          It would have been impossible to bill the insurance companies since CG PH had zero information on our insurance status.

      The Russians smelled weakness all over Trump, and played his big fat spoiled baby ass like a violin. Wily old spy Putin used the oldest trick in the book on Trump, and blackmailed him with dirty pictures of him getting peed on by a hooker. That’s how the Russians were able to put a huge military buildup into the arctic, within shouting distance of Alaska. It can probably be seen from Sarah Palin’s house.

      No, they cannot unless the actions could be construed as threatening to other students in the school. If you put something on social media that says you are going to “settle a score”, you could be suspended. If you say you are going to do a Columbine, you will be suspended – and more.

    When Vice President Kamala Harris was San Francisco’s district attorney, she oversaw 1,900 convictions for pot offenses. Yet, she’s since joked about her own marijuana use. When the Biden administration fired staffers for using marijuana in the past, Harris was spared.

      Disney did not buy Fox. You low information trumpettes need to get your sh*t together and have someone explain the news to you. Disney bought 20th Century Fox. Fox Sports and Fox Broadcasting join Fox News as assets that will help make up Fox Corporation — which is officially a stand-alone, publicly-traded company. It will begin trading on NASDAQ under the FOXA and FOX symbols. The company announced that former House Speaker Paul Ryan will join its board alongside Jacques Nasser and controlling shareholders founder Rupert Murdoch and CEO and chairman Lachlan Murdoch.
