In an atmosphere where cops are being widely demonized as a whole by many, this needs to be posted

    You really going to go there again, LIAR?

    YOU asked who is attacking 'ALL' cops. The only one who used the word 'ALL' or insinuated 'ALL' cops were being attacked is YOU.

    Again I am sorry the truth triggered you so much that you LIED ... got busted ... and felt the need to express your Collin Kaepernick-inspired hatred for police officers by hijacking a threat honoring heroic policemen.

    Let's see if we can keep a thread honoring the brave police officers, off-duty military members, and vets who jumped into action during the Vegas shooting going....
    - Hoping Mods can help more this time to keep the hijacking Trolls out...

    ------------------------------

    Shooting witness describes Vegas police: ‘In a world where everyone’s kneeling, these guys stood up’

    "Speaking with NBC’s “Today” on Monday, Russell Bleck — who attended the festival where the attack happened — told Savannah Guthrie that the actions of local law enforcement was nothing short of admirable.

    “I mean, just, God bless the police officers,” Bleck said. “I mean, in a world where everyone’s kneeling, these guys stood up and took — I mean, they knew what they were against and they ran toward the danger with just handguns. I mean, that’s real bravery right there.”

    Bleck added that “there’s no telling how many [people the police] saved.”

    Bleck told “Today” that in the massacre, police officers and military veterans jumped in immediately to help.

    “You saw a lot of ex-military just jump into gear. I saw guys plugging bullet holes with their fingers,” Bleck said, who was in a VIP tent with his fiancée. He eventually took cover beneath some bleachers.

    “While everyone else was crouching, police officers [were] standing up at targets, just trying to direct people, tell them where to go,” he said. “The amount of bravery I saw there, words can’t describe what it was like.”

    How did Bleck manage to politicize this event by making reference to the police brutality and racism Kap was kneeling about? Not sure this is much about honoring cops as pretending that its ok for them to be racists as long as they help whites.

    Ace, before the day had even started I posted a thread predicting this shit......I knew the white wing nuts would morph this shit away from a white person because I knew the shooter was white even before it was announced.....and turn this shit into a apple pie cop moment.....why be surprised.

    The fact is police officers acted heroically to save people's lives. No one is trying to make saints of all police officers. I am just honoring those in Vegas.

    Just as Trump prefers hero's that aren't captured....I prefer hero's that actual prevent shootings like this....fact: The guy was lone and dead when reached...this is after people pointed to the room he was in. Fact: not one bullet from a cop was needed and although they had no clue as to what was going on, it was a easy day for cops....just sayin

    Kinda sad you have to say that with qualifiers.

    Understandable, though.

    You mean asking perfectly sensible questions about how a crazy person was able to kill 58 people with a military grade weapon?

    I give them credit for responding well, but the fact is, this situation never should have occurred to start with.
