Oh yeah~~~I'm all ears, and yes there will more than likely in the not too distant future be a situation that arises that will test both sides of the above photo. Protester vc Cop or Demonstrator vs Cop~~~or Revolutionary vs Cop, JUST TAKE YOUR PIC, label as you wish.
Uh, keep protesting? They won't do anything unless someone in YOUR group does something first. Like throw a rock, or a bottle, or get completely out of hand to the point that they indanger innocents around them.
Like they almost ALWAYS do.
That gear isn't cheap ( I KNOW from a personal point of view ) It comes for FEDERAL GRANT MONEY~~The idea is to keep those who question, or VOICE AN OPINION, in check. Most Cops are followers, they do what they are told so it's easy for the Feds to control the masses through fear. The sad thing is that they are PLAYING WITH FIRE. It's only a matter of time before someone gets burned, and burned badly.
You under estimate just how much it takes before a person says enough is enough. If a small amount of cops realize the side they're on is wrong, the rest will grow the cahones it takes to go with them.
I was gun shopping this past week-end. There was a guy on a cell talking to a friend about needing a Revolution, going to Washington and saying enough is a enough. Right here smack dab in the Heart of America. Imagine that! Don't be naive where the above is concerned.
Such is the reason why our country still rocks. We can openly talk about it all we want and not have to worry about getting taken out back in the dead of night and shot by men in black suits.
