The panic has hit

I hope they are figuring out this is not a LARP, real violence, real consequences. They call for the defunding and removal of our police forces, then when the shit hits, they call for the police. Let all ponder this for a bit.

He put himself in this situation as did everyone else there. You show up to

That’s it.
I usually stay out of discussions like this, but without the context of why he put himself there, it's hard to form an opinion. Wa he defending something? If so, a 17 yo kid with a rifle defending something makes me ask, where the fuck are his parents. Was he there to agitate someone? If so, same question. I will admit I don't know what boog bois are, maybe that adds context.
We had some rioting and looting at the VA beach oceanfront a few months ago. Some guy in a jacked up pickup with a large flag drove through the crowds in the street. He was charged recently with something like vehicular assault. But when it happened I thought, who hears there's a riot and I'm going to go to it? I'm more, I guess I'm not going to Mahi's for dinner tonight.

The US Govt allows 17 year olds to go fight on foreign soil and die. Maybe his parents encouraged it, maybe he wanted to prove his courage to himself. I was fortunate or unfortunate to watch the live stream of the incidents. One thing none of the three who were shot were decent human beings, they all had records mostly violent occurrences. They were all there for a reason, was what happened a bit of a tragedy, quiet possibly for the shooter if charges stick, for the rest of humanity in the area getting rid of two of them was a boon, the injury of the other, well they were a felon in possession of a firearm, maybe he will turn his life around now.
I agree on the who is going to a riot thing, I 100% am for protests, I am 100% for civil disobedience, I am 100% for defending ones property and life. A few bad actors have taken away from a chance to make change, the knee jerk reaction to remove the police is over the top STUPID. Most departments in the USA are making changes, some for the better.
Stay safe

Pretty much back to normal here. No masks and no social distancing required at football games! JV games Thursday night and Varsity Friday nights. Going to Bill & Ted's Part 3 tonight.

And they (media) say we are a hot spot right now. :rolleyes:
