Obama on Baton Rouge: 'Cowards' attacked police - CNNPolitics.comWe as a nation have to be loud and clear that nothing justifies violence against law enforcement," Obama said, speaking from the White House press briefing room. "Attacks on police are an attack on all of us and the rule of law that makes society possible."
"These are attacks on public servants, on the rule of law, and on civilized society, and they have to stop."
I will read the transcript when it comes out. One hopes for a call for law and order, with conviction, but that is most certainly beyond this small man who so rarely judges things correctly.
OMG, the gunslinger who flies drones endlessly over the nether parts of our world is going to tell us that the violence must end, cease the violence, this is the President speaking. LOL
We have our divisions, and they are not new. Around-the-clock news cycles and social media sometimes amplify these divisions, and I know we’re about to enter a couple of weeks of conventions where our political rhetoric tends to be more overheated than usual.
Again, **** YOU. How bout we talk turkey MKay? That would be a novel approach wouldn't it..And that is why it is so important that everyone -- regardless of race or political party or profession, regardless of what organizations you are a part of -- everyone right now focus on words and actions that can unite this country rather than divide it further
We don’t need inflammatory rhetoric
Violence is the symptom, how bout some work on the problems? Oh right, you sit in DC, how dare I expect good work from you and your fellow morally challenged incompetents.some of which I participated in -- where I saw people of good will pledge to work together to reduce violence throughout all of our communities. That’s what’s needed right now.
We are divided, something that the elite have been driving towards with their divide and conquer approaches ever since Slick Willey proved how well they can work. Congrats, Assholes. Stop all the lying, all of the insinuation that we are stupid, all of the acting like we are stupid and cant tell that you are lying to us.My fellow Americans, only we can prove, through words and through deeds, that we will not be divided
I thought it was an appropriate speech. I feel like we're hitting rock bottom with relations between police and inner city blacks and things are going to start getting better soon. I feel like much of the police abuse that used to happen has gone away as a result of phone video and the new body cameras that we'll be seeing more of, not to mention the intense national media scrutiny. And I feel the folks in the inner city who are vehemently anti-police are probably deep down sick of being victims...not so much of police but being told by so many people that they're victims in general, that it's always someone else's fault. I feel like they're going to want to take charge of their lives and maybe consider, as the Dallas police chief suggested, joining the force themselves, or at least policing themselves and loving one another better.
He is certainly too compromised by bad behaviour to be effective in making a call to the rule of law. I mean he has to say it if he wants to retain a shred of decency while he finishes his mostly failed sit in OUR chair, but given his obvious moral flaws the words dont travel far.
