    The city should be picking those pallets up.

    I hope that the citizens of Frisco treat these people like criminals and have their guns ready to defend their home.

    "Frisco PD has responded and investigated the report of bricks near where a planned protest is to be held. It was determined that the bricks were part of a planned HOA construction project and with permission they have been removed to be returned at a later time."

    OK why would you pile bricks under an overpass? I don't see any houses near the underpass and I am familiar with that area. I am glad they bricks are gone but that is a BS response. Maybe to alleviate fear?

    So Plano PD has a different response

    To clarify rumors, the attached picture is going around and in some cases, people are saying they were dropped off there for nefarious reasons. The photo you are seeing is older and all the pavers have been removed by NTTA. They were dropped off for a construction project at Sam Rayburn and Plano Pkwy in The Colony for legitimate reasons but they are now gone. We have spoken with NTTA and they have confirmed this. Please pass this along if you see additional posts about it. Thank you."

    So which is it? An HOA or NTTA?

    Can you answer? Who is placing piles of bricks near protest areas in cities around the country?

    You're finally making sense. You have had a Bill Maher moment.

    Apparently I’m the culprit. I drove on the Sam Rayburn parkway a week or two ago and they used my funds to purchase bricks to maintain their structures. Or it’s George soros and he’s paid off the police dept from The Colony to be a part of the scheme. Deep state! Jade Helm!!!

    There ARE a number of areas that are doing the medians with paver stones...whether that is the case in THIS incident, I have no idea. But it IS a potentially plausible explanation...

    Frisco and Plano ARE different entities...Plano bricks attributed to NTTA while Frisco bricks attributed to HOA. NOT incompatible statements...

    Whether either is truthful is not a ruling I could make...

    Plano has more guns per capita than any other city in the country. How many guns? No one knows because Texans don't have to register their guns.

    God bless Texas.

    Going into neighborhoods is going to get real violent for these rioters.

    Lewisville had a protest march yesterday , then some tried to block a road but were dispersed with tear gas. No rubber bullets
    All in all pretty mild

    Austin_Bill, that is very interesting. Have you read "Empire of the Summer Moon"? One of the best books I have ever read. It covers the history of Cynthia Anne and Quanah and the Texas Rangers. Super great read for a Texan. Fascinating history.

    Almost all of the protests have been peaceful. Of course, you wouldn’t know that from reading Hornfans, which somehow makes the MSM seem fair and balanced.

    Give me a break. You expect the violent looting and rioting and murder of cops to be overshadowed by peaceful protest?

    I lived in NJ twice. What's in the water there now?

    Yes peaceful here in Nashville. Only burned the court house, damaged the historic Ryman and looted a few stores. Lost a few police cruisers too. Sure glad they were peaceful.

    Cynthia was Rachael's cousin who was also taken in the Masacre at Ft Parker. I haven't read the book but I've got some exerts from it on pdf in a folder of genealogy files I've collected over time. When soldiers found Cynthia she could no longer speak English since she was captured as a young girl. Her skin was so dark from years of being in the sun that they didn't even know she wasn't Native. It was only after she had uttered a single English word that they gave her closer inspection and saw she had blue eyes. Then they realized she was a white girl. Finally she uttered the word Parker and they put two and two together. She never went back with her family as she died before, and her two children including Quanah decided to stay with their people as Quanah was the next Chief. Quanah did however go to live with his grand father and was taught English and business. He was able to cut lease deals with ranchers to use Indian reservation land for cattle grazing where he made his tribe millions.

    Smart of them, I'd sure hate to see people getting killed because they can't behave themselves.

    I'm pretty sure none of us, (right leaning or left leaning) except LH, want to see people getting hurt, but violence will beget violence and as I said, there are a lot of guns in north Dallas and people who aren't afraid to use them.

    The police might be walking on egg shells because they don't want to lose their job, but the army isn't and neither are the citizens.

    I wondered that same thing until I found out that some guns require a tax stamp and there are more tax stamp guns in Plano than any other city and from that they extrapolated that there is probably more guns than even Wyoming and also because there are more people in Plano than Wyoming who has the highest known per capita guns in the country.

    Seriously you are trying to use 3 or 4 protests in suburban Texas which demographically suggests they would be peaceful to the crap going on all over the country and ignore the reality of the destruction of property and destruction of lives.
    So you think the riots and looting covered even by msm didn't happen?

    There have been literally thousands of protests. Hundreds per day. Most have been peaceful. That does not excuse the ones that have been destructive and/or violent, but those are a distinct minority.

    Of course they happened. But so did the thousands where rioting and looting didn’t occur, and thus got less attention.
