    At some point in one of these situations, just as the "protesters" have quit listening to the police, so the police will quit listening to police management, and then things will get interesting.

    If it had been conservatives the mayor would have order SWAT to use all force possible to stop the "extreme right wing violent thugs". But instead they were "peaceful citizens expressing their opinions"

    It’s one thing to see this in Maryland or California, but this is right up the road from me. I moved out of Aurora about 15 years ago. Now, I’m thinking I didn’t move far enough.

    It is concerning to me. At some point the "people that just want to be left alone" will react. Can the same be said for the abused and fed up LEOs? Say disregarding orders and actually defending themselves. I know that they are professionals, but they are also human.

    My heart goes out to the LEOs in these areas where they are instructed to take the abuse.

    Why are letting liberals redefine our Bill of Rights... but on the bright side, this should eventually wake up the silent majority

    Am I the only one thinking dragon’s breath shotgun shells should be used to shoot gas cans out of the hands of these so-called protestors?

    Let’s say I will have more gear when I hit CO later this month.
    I can’t carry in CO. Because I Now obey the law.

    They got away with it because they are Democrats supported by Democrats in office. If the protesters were Republicans, everything would be different, 100% different response.

    I watched the other video wherein the guy was trying to use some tool to improperly enter a federal facility. It was a struggle to find a "silver lining" from that video and apply it to this situation, as described, herein.

    Ok. For purposes of discussion only, I assume that the trapped policemen were intelligent, trained officers and made appropriate decisions as they assessed the situation. I simply wasn't there and unable to Sunday evening quarterback.

    Now, for the possible silver lining. Once encouraged to press and cross boundaries, the morons will do so at the next opportunity. Then, as in the federal situation, it will not be a question of youthful exuberance/probation/diversion programs/slap on the wrist/civil suits/plea bargains. And, if, videos of this heinous conduct that just past are available and the subsequent perps are the same people . . . .

    Like has happened in the past couple of years. A guy gets away with some criminal conduct in one incident, comes back and does something similar and gets bagged for both.

    Do the police kneel before being locked in?

    Locking people in a building. That is illegal imprisonment. Then bring gasoline containers. That is using deadly force. These people are attempting to kill the people inside. Time to take action or die a horrible death. Those people are NOT peaceful protesters.

    I know what I would do in this situation. And I know what every LEO I ever knew would do.

    No doubt that is true. In fact, there are nearly no right-wing groups to oppose these left-wingers now, because the US and Europe started, in the mid-'70s, battling against any right-wing equivalent, while encouraging the left. Now communist gangs roam the streets unopposed.

    Yes, recent policy. IF they admit their white privilege , they are released but you see all those racists locked up.
