    Considering that protesters are rioters outnumber law enforcement 20:1, if not more, it would be highly impractical for them to attempt to arrest each individual that is breaking a law. It also puts LEO at greater risk. This is why riot gear and large groups are used to control the crowds. The difficulty with identifying individuals is that the vast majority are wearing face coverings to hide their identity.
    I didn't say you were stupid, Dave, maybe you watch a different news channel than I do.. MOst of the ones I see on TV are not even smart enough to cover their face, but they only stealing half of what they could cause they holding their pants up with their other hand

    Would you rather manpower be used to find criminals that you see on news footage or manpower be used to stop criminals that are in the vicinity of LEO on patrol?

    Plenty of blame to go around. Surely looked like murder/manslaughter of the perp. rioting and looting ensued. Two wrongs donít make a right. The police only have so much man power and resources.

    Now Iím not saying the police should let it burn, but Iím not advocating going down a residential area and shooting riot rounds at residents standing on their own front porch either.

    Rock and a hard place currently for LE, I will be praying for them during these trying times.

    What about the behavior of your authority.

    I do not condone what these barbarians are doing and it needs to stop they are taking advantage of a crisis which seems to be common lately but let's not forget who started this mess

    Allow them to keep pecking away at your rights for the sake of property and safety and you will no longer have rights nor property, nor safety.

    That should not be an -either/or question

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.

    When a police force's manpower is already at their maximum, what do you suppose they do?

    It also makes us forget that there are a lot of great people in this countryósome of whom are protesting, and some of whom are wearing the badge and actually serving and protecting the people. Let's not forget about them, because of the violent actions of a few.

    Well said. A lot of change needs to take place. I think this is a good time to start. Retaliation on people that were not involved is wrong. I think when itís said and done, bad cops pay for their crimes and people see that they donít get away with murder as the media would have you believe, maybe theyíll calm down. Also, hopefully all LEOís who speak of the bad apples will decide to neither be one nor cover for one. If they donít want to be counted among the bad cops theyíre gonna have to start policing their own. If the actions of my coworkers put me in the position of having a target painted on my back, you can bet Iíd be separating myself from them.
    Doesnít play well with TROLLS...
