I’m glad you were able to listen to the phone call. I wasn’t ranting and raving like a madman, I was reviewing my options. I was calm and even thanked the person at the end. As I said I was not best pleased at the response. But that was not the fault of the person I talked to.
If some group were to come into my neighborhood, it has 2 entrances and exits. I would expect they would know that, as there would probably be someone in that group who would know the neighborhood. As far as being able to stop a mob? Yeah I think I could if I really put All of my training to it. Am I willing to. No. I have no desire to get thrown into prison.
When someone or a group of someone’s makes a specific enough threat it raises itself to my level of review of a threat and I review it… After the riot Sunday, and the specificity of the demands which were made (that Birmingham’s mayor caved into). I called my various insurance and membership organizations to find out what was covered what wasn’t covered.
From the video you posted about Tim’s reaction to “The Video” I feel much the same. I am sickened by what happened. I was sickened by the coverage of “The Atlantic” which said when "white people protested with guns in Michigan, they were “protestors” but when the African American community protested and then began rioting and looting cities they were unfairly called thugs and terrorists.
I wasn’t in Michigan when they protested, but I don’t remember any rioting and looting going on. But that’s just me. YMMV.
