    Are they White or Black? Are they wearing a Maga hat or a BLM hat? These are important questions. Please advise.

    It looked pretty damned desperate in the videos I've seen. You ever faced an angry mob battering the door you are standing behind? I think this incident, like most criminal situations, has to be judged independently. We can't say justice was misapplied elsewhere so we're required to behave stupidly for the rest if our lives.

    You'd almost think in the heat of the moment that police have to make split second decisions and sometimes innocent people die.

    I wasn't aware of that. That is scary. I am not for violence or destruction of property.

    Yep. Crazy situations require people to make life and death decisions in a split second. Mistakes are made and sound decisions are questioned.

    Assume for this hypothetical that you have no time to figure that out.

    If you're going to flame someone for not knowing how to read you should use proper punctuation. For future reference.

    For the sake of argument if I am so armed I'm shooting. Any rational person would. Of course most situations are not so cut and dry.

    When this was taken...notice the glass was blown inwards and the doors are barricaded.

    No Joe: I think the existing rules are more carefully formulated than the ones you are suggesting here.

    Most of those entering the Capitol Building would never be confused with rocket scientists. That dude may take the cake. Killed by your own taser while you are trying to steal a painting. He's the king of a pathetic lot that entered the Capitol Building.

    Yesterday: Joe Biden on Mitt Romney
    "He's going to put ya'll back in chains."

    Today: Joe Biden on Mitt Romney
    "This is a man of enormous integrity."

    LOL
    Liberal ethics blow around like a weathervane

    Politics in a nutshell. But Kamala wins I think.

    "Biden is a supporter of the KKK. Biden may need to withdraw from running because I believe his accuser."

    "I accept Bidens nomination of me for VP and can't wait to work with him."

    So when has Mitt Romney violated his conscience to appease the rabble? Except for ludicrous campaign promises we require of every successful candidate, when has he lied? He is guilty in Republicans eyes of not being partisan enough, not lacking integrity.

    So Trump lies and hyperbole are the only ones that are OK?

    Sad thing is that he may have been a decent enough fellow to his friends, family and community... just got angry, lost his moral compass as part of a mob and ended in death a laughingstock for people of opposite political persuasion.

    Imagine this scenario. You're a policeman, out to do the job you were hired to do, respond to a conv store holdup, confront the alleged criminal and he charges. You don't know what weapons he might have. What do you do?

    Would you murder the alleged thug just to save your hide?

    I'd use the force required up to and including lethal force.

    Sad isn't it. Trump and Giuliani incited a mob and may have changed forever the way we govern ourselves.

    Except they didn't incite anybody. You need to read a transcript or listen to the speech. Trump told them to be peaceful.
