  1. The “Armed Attorneys” who are active in defensive gun shooting cases warn, even if you did every right, you have a 50/50 chance of being found guilty in court. Grand Juries would be even more risky. If you want less crime, stop double guessing our cops.

  2. @Pat — I’m not sure about that. The officers were cleared of wrongdoing, so any festering claims of an out of control police force are fabricated and have no bearing on reality. Without the officers being cleared, the suspicious move toward paranoia and things get even more dangerous, especially for the officers.

    @Little Flower — I agree that Trump is no fiscal conservative. That’s been my biggest issue with him all along. But to vote for 3rd party Kennedy over Trump is a vote for the Democrat candidate.

  3. Trump is no longer promising to hold a conservative position on the social issues (abortion, LGBT, trans issues) but rather promising a liberal but not progressive position. He’s not fiscally conservative and he handled Covid poorly.

    Robert Kennedy may run third party if the Democrats won’t let him run as their candidate. He may not be that different from Trump on the social and fiscal issues. But, there would be no medical tyranny under a Kennedy administration.

    If Trump is the Republican nominee and Kennedy runs, I would have to consider Kennedy. I need to find out more about Kennedy. My first choice, of course, is still DeSantis.
