I'm having t-shirts made up that say "Blue Lives Matter".
I'll wear it in public everywhere.
The community I served was at least 45% black and a smattering
if Hispanic and other cultures.
We never had police/race relation issues until "persons of color"
came from outside the area and stirred dissent.
It was mostly the under 30 year old unemployed "disadvantaged"
that eventually rioted and looted.
I endured 13 serious injuries in those 22.5 years before being declared
100% disabled.:eek::eek:
Endured NINE grueling months in rehab learning to walk again!
Do I hate anyone?
Nope.
Do I have racist views?
Nope!
So did I sulk and cry in my beer over permanent injury and pain?
Nope!
What did I do?
I WENT TO COLLEGE AT AGE 48 AND EARNED 2 DEGREES AND FINISHED
MY WORKING LIFE AS A G.M. EMPLOYEE!
THAT'S WHAT!:D:D

Oh, and I sometimes STILL need therapy for my P.T.S.D.
Being shot at will do that.
Like pinned down by rifle fire for over 3 hours till we gassed the
creeps out.
Like interviewing an 8 year old black girl with syphilis of
the throat. FOR THE THIRD TIME!
My backs been broken FOUR times as a result of fights with criminals.
Hospitalized 2 X with chemical poisoning from industrial fires.
One was a chemical plant covertly making agent orange.
And much, much, more.

I really don't know what to say.
My heart is broken for the boys in blue.
I just can't seem to put my feeling in words right now. Nothing seems right.
God Bless you and all law enforcement! Both active, retired and sadly gone from their families forever.

I absolutely hate the disrespect for Police that's going on in this country now.

I know which side I'm on.
Don't come around me with bad mouthing the police, I may burn your ears then some.

Its the upbringing .

Yep the Black Panthers making their own law and totally disrespecting the police and the laws they enforce IMO shows just how the Black Panthers and any Black Lives Matter group of thugs rioting and killing need to be put in jail. Yep loot businesses and then burn them down, shoot innocent citizens and cops is hardly any type of righteous justice.
If they weren't getting paid they wouldn't be doing this unlawful ignorance. The powers that be want martial law declared and then bring in UN forces as the police state. The senate just approved the UN forces being allowed to police the USA. Talk about unconstitutional!

I am in league with Double R in my thoughts and feelings. The guys and gals in blue were trying to protect the BLM movement (if you can call it that) and yet, when danger broke out, they immediately responded to the call. They didn't ask what color of people they were trying to protect or their religion or their sexuality. They ran into a hail of bullets trying to save lives of people they didn't even know. They ran to protect people who have said in their marches "death to the pigs" and "what do we want-dead cops now". They gave their lives to the sworn policy they all took. The job pays little compared to the risk they take, yet and with some having foreboding, they dressed in that blue uniform and went to work. That takes one helluva lot of dedication. I only wish that more would respect and understand that.

I heard on the news that around 200 people applied to become Dallas police since the shooting.
