I’m watching the national news and I think I see a trend brewing in some of these communities. I hope and prey it doesnt happen, but it looks like an avalanche coming. Instead of, or along with attacking police, soon the perpetrators of violence, fear, and rioting will be targeting anyone who calls upon or supports the police in these communities.
I’ve long believed that what separated America from dozens of other countries where citizens live sheepishly in fear of violence, extremism, and evil is Americas respect for the rule of law and human rights. In other words, it is the rule of law that has made us great (the laws of the land starting with ‘all men being created equal’). In the past it has befuddled me how entire communities (often in areas where we tried to play police for the world) could submit to mob rule, fear and evil.
HIstory along with global and recent events have proven that submitting to terrorism will not appease terrorists, it will only embolden them.
@Scott52 - my comments above not withstanding, invoking symbolism rooted in genocide and atrocities against humanity will not likely unite Americans against the common enemy while we are in these highly polarized (socially engineered) times…
