Here, I'll just re-post this to end my discussion on this topic.  A logical assessment of the situation.  

Minus any examination of the intent of the protest, sure. It's a logical assessment of the situation from the perspective of someone that thinks the protest itself doesn't matter, only who it offends and how much money it costs.

How did they know it was a toy? Kids can get hold of guns in their house. Just obey the officer.

Policemen have dangerous jobs.  I'm sure they would rather be judged by 12 than toted by 6.

Not trying to push your buttons but which lives matter and which ones don't?

 "All lives matter" is a cop out. It means "I don't really want to discuss our national issues with policing in regards specifically to minorities. It doesn't effect me so I don't really care. So I'll give a meaningless platitude like 'all lives matter' but in reality, I don't give a sh*t"

That's what I hear when someone tells me "all lives matter".

1. I am disturbed by you using my Ranger buddy as your icon but i will try to ignore it. It is irritating to watch people attempt to use him as a pawn for whatever their agenda may be. 

2. We soldiers have a dangerous job, in a  warzone no less and we are still held to a higher standard than police officers. That does not make sense. 

Police killing unarmed black men is a symptom of bigger problems in our country, and all of these fearful men who cant handle themselves suddenly have weapons.

A policeman on vacation is a cop out.

 IMO, all lives matter is not a dodge .  Black lives matter is so divisive.

 So you're acknowledging that there's a problem with how our criminal justice system treats minorities?

Black lives matter is literally the assertion that black lives matter in a society that has always confirmed that "life matters" but hasn't always applied that sentiment to black people. Asserting that all lives matter in response to black lives matter is essentially saying that black people shouldn't assert that their lives matter unless they can do it in a way that makes white people feel appreciated.

My brother is retired Airborne Ranger.   i dont think you have exclusive rights.  My dad was a police officer after he served in the military.  Both men had standards.

It is your rhetoric that I had a problem with not claiming exclusive rights. Additionally standards refer to police as a organization. Police Officers are held to low standards not only is the lack of training obvious it breeds complacency. Not talking about personal standards.  Which Battalion was your brother in?

i would agree that black lives matter but im not willing to stop there.  Native American lives matter.  Look how they were abused and yet no one is kneeling on their behalf.
