The cracker south will fall again.

Those cops should be flying their confederate flag.

They are dealing with people protesting and rioting.
What do you expect the cops to wear, a velvet pinstriped suit?

I wonder why the people are rioting? Why are they so angry with the police. Because of one shooting? Not likely. Lot more going on. Something is very wrong with the police force there.

So cadets, if at anytime you feel you are in danger of getting a bruise, cut, scratched, or having a cell phone thrown at you, shoot to kill.

Yes, that's the full cast of characters, no need to mention the guys with the armored vehicles.

And there are no pine trees where I live.

Go get 'em, boys!

Nope. I don't see you angry white guys getting any loot out of this at all.
You know ,nothing says " social justice" like a few dozen looted local businesses and piles of brand new burning tires.

Rescue vehicle?.. I hope that heavy ass thing gets stuck in some mud. They might need a skycrane to get it out.. fortunately it's already equipped with attachment points for that.

Just in case some police need rescue from a riot in the mountains I guess.

Sound like the investigation of the shooting happened and I missed it.

Too early for judgements. Let the process roll on. I do find sympathy with khanoms View above though. The militarization of our police forces is a terrible idea.
