We are sympathetic to the police who are usually in bad spots.
But it's worth knowing that 'the cops' are NOT always there to serve and protect.
...“We gathered to have our Trump 2020 Rally, and at 4 PM were immediately met by a large group of counter protestors. After about a half hour went by and the counter protestors saw that they had a large numerical advantage, they began crossing the street,” organizer Rocco Lucente wrote in a Facebook post.
“At that point they began pushing, shoving, kicking, punching, stealing peoples signs and flags, taking peoples hats, and attempting to physically intimidate the crowd into surrender. It got to the point where the mob was attacking anyone who still had Trump gear on. We called Ithaca Police Department to let them know what was happening, but they didn’t show up for a half hour and merely directed traffic away from the riot once they did show up. Mayor Svante Myrick enabled this thuggish display of violence by mobs of his voters by telling IPD to stand down,” he added....
That's hardly the only instance of cops "standing down" and watching brutalization of pro-Trump/pro-America demonstrators. It's just the most recent one.
Other instances? Portland, Seattle, Austin, Denver, New York........
Think that cop is going to toss his salary and pension because......what........you're getting smacked around while he's watching?
Think again, pal.
