An open letter to a protester. We might sit down over coffee, and I would start by telling you that I have done a lot of good things in my short 5-year career. I was the first officer on the scene for a call at a college campus where a delusional person was wandering the halls of a dormitory with a gun. In that incident, we found the person responsible just as he was about to commit a sexual assault.


Not many of us L'dotters need this as much as the leftists do. This officer's perspective is so valuable and instead of de-funding or disbanding police we should seek to understand.

I have a number of friends who were police officers, all are retired now, just an "old guy thing", almost all my friends are retired now. Good letter, but I got a bit irritated that he seems required to jump on the side of Floyd rather than say something like "we don't know what really happened and a partial video probably doesn't tell the whole story". But, my friends have many stories, good and bad, and I have done a couple of ride alongs. THAT is an eye opener, even for someone without illusions. To have the emotions that come with a domestic disturbance call in a tenement for real, and personally, not just imagining it. I encourage anyone who has never done a ride along to see if they can do it. Many departments have them. Best wishes to the officer. This insanity about blaming all police is totally a political game, and very, very wrong. And it is dangerous.

You can't reason with a mob whose agenda is to destabilize and take down the USA. Their " grievances" are a veneer for their true intent. IF black lives really matter, why no outcry over the black on black gang violence that occurs everyday ? More unarmed whites are killed by police ( the number is low double digits ) than unarmed blacks, which were 9 . That's right , 9 in 2019. Take a look at " Prairie Fire". written by Bill Ayers ( friend of Obama ) of the Weatherman Underground. This is what's going on.

When some privileged snot is proud to wear a T-shirt with the murdering thug Che on it, and they scream about how great communism is, it is going to require a punch in the nose just to get their attention. There is a good chance they will never get it. If you never had to actually work or have any consequences for your actions, and you have no idea what is morally right or wrong, you could easily live your entire live as a tool of the Devil. Every one of those slobs on the street are either too stupid to understand the reality of crime enforcement, have some kind of weird PC grievance like made up gender nonsense or they are vicious punks to want to run amuck with a herd of sheep for cover.

The thought and intentions were good. However, with so many "I"s (about 81) in the letter, it started sounding like Doorknob Hussein's speech. And this is not counting the "me"s. Regardless, most BLM, ANTIFAs, LOOTERs, RIOTERs, ARSONISTs and the STUPIDs can't read and process anyway. The letter will only fall on deaf ears and blind eyes.

Nice apology to those who do not deserve it. They don't want to "have a dialogue" they just want to be treated like the superior beings that they think they are and now many whites do too. I'm beginning to think that the best way to educate these people is to give them exactly what they want, no police protection. We'll see just how fast the jackals take over the Sarengeti and how fast the herbivores start screaming for help.

Thank you, Officer Templeton for sharing your thoughts and a perspective rarely held up for the public to see, although I'm sure held by the vast majority of your fellow officers nationwide. It's important that you wrote it, but sadly I fear will be dismissed and lost in the flurry of lessor minds with bullhorns who will fill the air and spaces with emotional knee-jerk wails and teeth gnashing, all seeking the else and others to blame. Know too, the vast majority of Americas people honor and support you and those who uphold the ideal: To Serve and Protect. May God bless you - we know - it ain't easy.

A letter worth reading. Perhaps he should send a copy to Obola since he is biracial too. I will say it again: No LEO should have to leave home for a shift, not knowing if they will return in one piece or at all. There are bad apples in all professions. You know, like we get a bad president once in a while that stays eight years, bad cop, bad member of the House or Senate. We have a generation without empathy, without fathers, without work ethics and sadly, without G-d. Cookies For Cops.

Publix gets 1 out of 4 Florida coronavirus vaccines, which officials don’t track 6 replies
Posted by snapper451 3/3/2021 1:03:54 PM Post Reply
State officials have shipped 70,000 COVID vaccine doses a week to Publix’s central distribution hub in Lakeland in Central Florida, without knowing exactly where the shots will go, a Miami Herald analysis of state vaccine distribution data from the past five weeks and interviews with state officials found. The grocery chain — a major financial supporter of Gov. Ron DeSantis — is the state’s single-largest vaccine supplier and receives nearly a quarter of Florida’s available doses without providing state officials a store-specific distribution plan ahead of time, according to Jared Moskowitz, the director of the Florida Division of Emergency Management, the agency leading the vaccination campaign.

President Trump is down in the polls. The Republican National Convention is mostly canceled. And now, some Republicans are contemplating the unthinkable: Would they be better off losing in November and rebuilding for 2024? “The thought is starting to cross people’s minds,” said a Republican strategist who requested anonymity to speak candidly. “One way or the other, there will be life after Trump.”

As we reported two days ago, Joe Biden completely made no sense when he was trying to explain the Wuhan coronavirus relief bill. It was really bad and it explains why they’re afraid to have him deliver an address to Congress or do any kind of a real solo press conference, because at this point they have to be afraid this is all going to fall apart if he does anything live and this all becomes too obvious to the American people. But there’s only so long that they can hold this off. And it’s getting worse, as video today revealed. Biden was holding an event to announce the nomination

Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (WV) appears to have started to shift his views on the filibuster with remarks that he made on two news shows on Sunday morning.The shift from Manchin comes after he has repeatedly stated that he would not vote to end the filibuster, despite pressure from the far-Left. During the interviews on Sunday, Manchin repeatedly claimed that he was not open to ending the filibuster because he did not want to strip the minority party of their power in the Senate, but signaled that he was open to changing it.Fox News host Chris Wallace asked Manchin if he would consider “reforming the filibuster” if “Republicans

Prince Harry’s American wife accused his family of hateful racism against her baby, claimed they refused to protect her and drove her to the point of suicide.She made the incendiary and implausible charge that when she was pregnant with Archie, the royal family decreed that her unborn son would be denied the title of “prince” because her mixed race meant he might have dark skin.

Pelosi’s HR1 bill a blatant power grab for Democrats 30 replies

Nancy Pelosi’s top priority is to turn America into a one-party nation ruled by Democrats. Her bill HR 1 trashes the U.S. Constitution in an attempt to rig the system and make it virtually impossible to elect a Republican president or Congress again. It’s a power grab. The bill eviscerates state voting laws and forces all the states to conform to a set of rules that includes automatic voter registration. Anyone who goes to a DMV or applies for food stamps, Medicaid or other social services, or attends a public college will be automatically enrolled to vote. Noncitizens are obligated to identify themselves and opt out,

President Biden on Monday seemed to forget Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s name at a White House event—calling the Pentagon chief “the guy who runs that outfit over there.” Biden was announcing the nomination of two female generals to lead US military combatant commands. “And I want to thank the sec—the, the, ah former general. I keep calling him general, but my, my—the guy who runs that outfit over there,” Biden said.(Snip) Earlier at the event, Biden mentioned the Defense Department leader by his name, “Secretary Austin,” while appearing to read from a teleprompter.

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah.

Rep. Steve Cohen vowed to renew the push to remove former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover’s name from the bureau’s downtown Washington headquarters, according to an interview released Monday. Appearing on Yahoo! News’ Skullduggery podcast, the Tennessee Democrat said the effort is getting a fresh look after the release of a new movie highlighting the FBI’s secret program to discredit civil rights activists. The Washington Times in 2019 first reported Democrats’ bid to strip the longtime FBI director’s name from the bureau’s headquarters. Mr. Cohen said the impetus to revive the bid is the new movie, “Judas and the Black Messiah.” The movie details

“There must have been a moment, at the beginning, when we could have said –-no. But somehow we missed it.” Tom Stoppard The millions of Americans who were paying attention throughout the 2020 election campaign all became painfully aware of the fact that Joe Biden’s cognitive abilities were slipping and slipping fast. His wife, as the person closest to him, should have been the one to call the campaign quits in order to reduce stress on the man. Instead, apparently so anxious to become the First Lady by any means necessary, Mrs. Biden continued to push her failing husband’s campaign forward as if he were mentally qualified.
