  1. Regarding the publicizing LEOs identities, both sides of the discussion are correct. It can place undo danger on the officer, his family, and friends and we need to be careful not to do that. But history is full of the good-old-boy network protecting their own. Remember Christina West? No threat to anyone, but was physically abused by an officer due to his own mistake. Eye socket broken, other injuries and bruises, etc. The other officers watched it transpire and didn’t intervene. The offending officer was cleared of an wrong doing. If not for the body cameras we’d have never known the truth.

    We need to protect the officers, but we also need to not let that protection be used against the rest of us.

  2. @ Edward Lyle:
    What You Said !!!
    And anyone thinking otherwise is our enemy. But because we are good people we seek not to destroy them but to help them overcome their illness and become normal. If all that fails then we will likely need to re-visit that Destroy Them option.

  3. Nothing good can come from publicizing the names of LEOs involved in shootings, particularly if their actions have been determined to be justified. This is all part of the Marxist Democrat’s war on Law and Order. They hate babies, they hate women, they hate Law and Order, they hate parents, they hate nature, they hate the truth, and they hate science.

    The Marxist Democrat’s are all-in on destroying our culture and our Republic. They are, and always have been, the Party of Hate and Racism.

  4. @David He is, No doubt. It is what they do. Attack the exact thing they love to do in order to distract the low IQ from catching them in the act. The right wing have been doing it forever.

  5. Law enforcement officers’ identities Must be protected, especially when the shooting was justified. The Supreme Court is a joke. I hope the FPBA wins the lawsuit.

  6. Isn’t the minimum sentence for Second Degree Murder using a Firearm 25 years?

    Or is this Restorative Justice?
