The videos presented were disturbing. I’ve seen violence on the streets. Violence that involved children, adults, and I’ve seen death that came for those that were on a headlong rush to oblivion, and I’ve seen death come for those that never expected it. I watched the videos from the January 6 riot, and nobody is more grateful than I am that people find them disturbing.
I watched them through the lens of a former police officer and I saw a police force that was totally unprepared for what happened on January 6. That will not be discussed in this Congressional hearing. I’m not moved by the tears from those in Congress that never spoke-up during the 150 nights of rioting in Portland, or any other city in America.
Let’s look at this quote:
PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Police made more than 200 arrests in connection with ongoing civil unrest in Portland during the month of September; however, about nine out of every 10 suspects have already had their charges dropped.
That’s just one month. Where was the Congressional outrage, and where is it now? I call it riots for thee, but not for me.Published in
