(Tea Party PAC) – Well, ladies and gentlemen, it seems that we have now decided as a culture that it’s perfectly acceptable to riot, loot, and burn your city down whenever a decision is reached that you disagree with, rather than acting like rational human beings and expressing our grievances in a health way that allows for discourse, debate, and a change of heart.
The latest example of this shift in our thinking as a society comes from the response to the decision reached in the Breonna Taylor case. It’s been announced that none of the officers involved in the shooting death of Taylor will be charged with a crime. This was decided by the Kentucky attorney general, a black man, but despite that, leftists in Black Lives Matter are still calling this racism and as such, rioting has exploded once again all over the country.
At this point, it seems these folks are just looking for any possible justification for getting wild and destructive. If this were really about equality, peace and love would be the bedrock foundation of these “protests.”
Via NY Post:
It only took a few hours for violent clashes to erupt between protesters and police in Louisville, Kentucky, after a grand jury cleared the cops of any criminality in Breonna Taylor’s police-involved death.
Moments after a Kentucky grand jury’s decision to only indict one of three cops involved — and only for endangering neighbors by opening fire — in Taylor’s March 13 shooting death, protests erupted on the streets of Louisville.
Hundreds chanting, “No justice! No Peace!” took to the streets — and less than three hours after the charges were handed up against former Louisville police detective Brett Hankison, confrontations between police and protesters broke out.
As police in riot gear and demonstrators clashed, officers fired off pepper balls and several arrests were made.
At one point police wielding batons formed a human chain along a city street, so that protestors could not pass, prompting some to shove through.
Tensions rose further as protestors cursed and shouted at police and reportedly hurled water bottles at them.
One video posted to Twitter showed some demonstrators descending on a local restaurant, and throwing the tables and chairs on its outdoor patio, as one man shouted, “No! No! No! No vandalizing!”

As if this wasn’t scary enough, two police officers ended up getting shot during the chaos in Louisville last night. Fortunately, neither one suffered a life-threatening injury and the suspect, Larynzo Johnson, 26, has been arrested.
Still, this craziness has gone on and on for months now. Leftist leadership in major cities where the vast majority of this violence is taking place have done nothing to reestablish law and order. Instead, they’ve ignored everything and just allowed violent criminals to destroy businesses, neighborhoods, and even attack others with no fear of consequences.
America is built on law and order. When that collapses, anarchy ensues. This needs to be stopped immediately. No more excuses.
