    Of course. Congress and every...
  2. Re: Death of George Floyd and Subsequent Riots.

    Rodney King made a similar appeal shortly after riots began in his name, to no avail, and the LAPD was accused of deliberately failing to intervene against the pillaging of the city. It’s a tragedy...
  3. Re: Death of George Floyd and Subsequent Riots.

    De Blasio’s political pandering comes at the direct cost of the city he is supposed to serve as looters ransack shops and retailers. Utterly disgraceful.
  4. Re: Death of George Floyd and Subsequent Riots.

    I suppose the former POTUS ought to now be branded a “white moderate” and kicked out of the Church of Virtue Signals. Those who continue to excuse and rationalize the pillaging of American...

    It appears the irresponsible narratives pushed by some local officials seeking the path of least political resistance are inaccurate.

  9. Re: Death of George Floyd and Subsequent Riots.
