    Thread drift happens. Back on course now?

    Given the fact the protests are now on the White House doorsteps, what leadership strategy is going to calm the masses? OK, call Antifa "domestic terrorists." Got it. <no joy on the effectiveness of that statement>

    Where are effective words to "restore order?"

    There aren’t any.

    The people rioting. HATE Trump, and don’t listen to him.

    What magic words is he gonna say to settle down these crowds? “I resign.” “Cops have been outlawed.” Or perhaps “Free food stamps for life.” Those are things he could say that might settle things down, but he ain’t gonna say that, and nothing else he could say would have any effect.


    Also, how would they hear it? Tough to hear the president speaking when you are at a riot, smashing windows and stealing stuff.

    Interesting. From the president, I thought something about 2nd Amendment. After all, this is a Glock forum and he is a stable genuis.

    Nevermind. He's got Secret Service. . .and that room/bunker I saw Evelyn Salt break into. All's good.

    There is still missing video that has partially come to light. The officers got Floyd into the squad, then are seen opening both rear doors and pulling him out the passenger side. The only body cam footage I've seen is from the Park Police officer that arrived later.
    What if anything is to be made from the Governor's decision to appoint the Attorney General as the lead prosecutor in the case, even though he has never prosecuted a criminal case? He pretty much promised last night that charges would be upped.

    Keith's son is an Antifa supporter so he should recuse himself but that won't happen.

    You posed the question so what do you think Trump should say? I take it you are not a fan of Trump?

    No. The gov. took control of the prosecution from the Hennepin County DA and gave the control to the state attorney general, Keith Ellison.

    Ok then I am reading my story wrong. I'll see if I can find it. I think it was For America mentioned something specific about his son. Doesn't surprise me he would be a supporter for Antifa as a former Deputy Chair for the DNC

    Ok, we are going in circles. I am asking you what exactly Trump should say?

    Personally, I don't think there are any words he could convey that would lessen the hatred the left has for him, citizens, law and order, and the Republic in general. You know what would stop the riots? Extreme and specific violence from local and State LE and violence towards rioters from property owners.

    When the violence starts the time for talking is over.

    The type of people who engage in violence,arson, and looting against their fellow citizens, including their own neighbors homes and businesses are unlikely to be swayed by anything anyone says.

    Hmmm. . .let me reflect. I think I'm a little confused.

    Ask the president a question. How is his actions/recommendations for civil obedience any different from:

    1. 1968 Democratic Convention demonstrations
    2. 1970 Kent State Shootings
    3. 1989 Tiananmen Square protests

    You have D.C. police gas peaceful protestors, rubber bullet peaceful protestors so you can have a photo op at a church.

    Sir, it's no longer police against rioters or looters anymore. It's police against Americans. Is that the narrative you want?

    Police are a proud lot. Justifiably so. Aint perfect. . .it's continuous improvement in any organization. They do admirably serve and protect. Why are you making them NOW appear to be the enemy of the state?

    This narrative is setting back respect for law enforcement, our government, our nation. Is that the narrative?

    I'd ask that. . .what he says? That's on him.

    Agree. . .for multiple reasons. Sometimes it is what it is. Hope springs eternal until there's no hope. I smile. . .because I do know there's light at the end of the tunnel. . .metaphorically speaking.

    I believe (and support) chauvin is getting a lengthy sentence and the others will be charged also, don't know if convicted.

    I've read articles regarding his UOF during his career and that can be the final nail in his coffin.

    You’re not wrong! I was pointing out that BOTH of them are Antifa supporters.

    Here is a nice pic of Kieth, that he posted on his own Twitter account, then later deleted. Can’t imagine what he would be concerned about.
