    DaleGribble is spot-on. Simply call in for a week. EVERYONE, every single swinging-richard and Hoo. I'd give it about 24 hours and the left would be begging ya'll to come back. Play it cool...., "Huh...what..??? Nah...still feeling a little sick...might have the Rona."

    "Maybe we can talk about those contracts while we're at it."

    That would only alienate many fence sitters and harm supporters. Better to take the high road, ride it out, or walk away. The job is changing. Those who live in the troubled areas are going to be the ones who suffer most with the outcome.
    There are many who live in these areas who see what's truly happening, they either silently live in fear, or, are having their voices oppressed by the MSM.

    Anarchy is the last thing they want, it just happens to be a word the "cool kids" use.
    They are nothing more than entitled brats who think if they throw a big enough tantrum they can enslave the working class. If they ever achieved true anarchy, they would be the ones wiped out.
    The only places they are "winning" is in dem countrolled areas. Those are the ones who use up the most police resources and they are the ones who will suffer the loss of policing.

    Sometimes lessons have to be felt to have a lasting effect. Kind of like telling your kids not to touch a hot stove.

    People don’t realize without the police on scene first they won’t be getting a response from fire-rescue and ambulance services either.

    LAPD did that in the mid 90's in Central bureau to get the lazy city council to start working on their contract. It definitely got their attention. Later on dept management tried to put this action in the involved officers performance eval reports. The courts ordered them to remove any reference to said sick days.

    If officers are going to have a massive sick day they need to let the public know what day it will be so "they" can be prepared.

    Hey, if cops get sick, they get sick. Prove that they're not.

    Rioters say, "No justice, no peace". Cops say, "No peace, no justice".

    I agree the job is changing but the disciplinary system and sometimes the legal system is biased against officers. Yes, against officers. DAs often don’t consider assaults on officers “crimes” and drop those charges immediately to the point where the ADA’s will ask if any “people” were Assaulted as if cops aren’t people.
    The problem is a lot of departments have already made these changes . The public and lawmakers are acting on old perceptions and beliefs. If you saw what NYPD cops have to do if they used any type of force in the normal course of business ( I don’t think they are doing the Force reports for every protester . But anytime a NYPD cop uses force where the person is taken to the ground, a report is made and reviewed by a supervisor. Body Cams are on etc etc.

    Anarchy (i.e. chaos) is exactly what the organizers want. And don't kid yourself, this is a well planned and orchestrated event. It is "Social Justice" at work.

    Yup. It is disguising as a "protest", but I think the ouster of the president is the ultimate goal.

    Nobody can blame them. I’m sure you understand. When you have done something for your whole life, and everything you ever thought has been turned opposite, you have to have an exit plan. The emotional damage that you have ignored for decades, is residual. You and your family have to come first. You hope to have half as many good years in retirement, and peace of mind to try and enjoy it. You can envy those people, that have lived their lives in naive bliss.

    Very astute observation...I can easily see HOA's budgeting for private security,and policing their sub-divisions...of course what to do with those apprehended for crimes remains an issue

    I continue to maintain that officers should dial every activity back to a bare minimum...NO self-initiated activity...NO speeding to calls ( unless ordered)..NO arrests if discretion allows and then only those which cannot be given a summons etc....let the city devolve and just put in your time...then get the hell out...there remain great places to live in this country where values and the rule of law still prevail

    I could get all the good paying private security work I want right now.

    But I'm sitting this one out. I'm done being a paid 'ho for the rich and/or famous.

    It seems like a nutty conspiracy theory to say that a political faction is trying to make the entire United States fail, so they can replace it with a socialist state, but it sure seems like everything the Democrats and "progressive movement" do is specifically designed to make the country fail.

    I am certain ANTIFA will have plenty of people to fill the vacant positions.

    I recently had a sidewalk conversation with one of the BOD of my HOA. They are going to be issuing a special assessment to add security gates, cameras, a perimeter fence and three entrances will have manned guard shacks and we will have private security on regular patrol in the neighborhood.

    My extended neighborhood is 30% black, 15% hispanic, 10% asian. Median price of the homes here is $350k. According to the Board member, support for the actions and special assessment appears to be very high.

    We have virtually no crime today, and the neighborhood wishes to keep it that way.
