What you’re not seeing

Regarding the current protests, looting and violence:

  1. There are police departments where officers have marched in solidarity with protestors.
  2. There are police departments that have issued press releases condemning the Minneapolis police actions. As they should be. Professionals don’t behave that way.
  3. These communities, and there are two near me, haven’t required curfews and haven’t had any violence. These aren’t small towns, either.

Is there a lesson here, someplace?


  1. Reblogged this on lyncrain and commented:
    History feels like it is repeating itself… rioting, looting, protests.. just like when I was in my teens. Martin Luther King would be appalled we haven’t learned to be peaceful yet.


  2. Tale of two cities:
    Norfolk, police walk with protesters, no curfew, no violence.
    Virginia Beach, police in riot gear and tear gas, curfew, violence.
