    Kenosha erupts in 2nd night of clashes after Black man wounded in police shooting

    Here's the thing about this. Blake was ordered several times to stop and surrender, he ignored all those orders. Ignoring police orders as he did put his own likelihood of being shot as a certainty. The reaction by the public ignores this reality. This is yet another justified shooting by police that ignorant civilians overreact to.

    He was a thug criminal who was probably reaching for his gun that he threatened someone with earlier. Let the facts come out but the MSM won’t, much like the Floyd case.

    Comply, that is all people have to do is comply and this crap will not happen. Like I always say, play stupid games and win stupid prizes.

    Lebron James says black people are scared of police. So, of course the logical thing to do is ignore and resist police like pretty much all the other instances (rightly or wrongly) they complain about. Resisting just hasn't been tried the right way yet. Just like Socialism.

    LeBron James may be right about black people being scared but that is no excuse for resisting police. All people, not just blacks need to know resisting police is futile and need to teach their children at an early age to comply with police because resistance is a certain path to get shot, rightfully so. There is no right way to resist police just as there is no right way for socialism. Lebron James is clearly part of the problem and not part of the solution, the same can be said about this entire BLM movement.

    I watched the interview with Jacob Blake's family today. I sympathize with their circumstances while I also recognize his injury is their failure to teach him to respect the police, obey their orders. Now is a teachable moment for others. Police have a job to do and they are honor-bound to do it. Walking away is resisting. When a police officer tells you to stop, do exactly that. We all own this issue so that is where the solution lays, with all of us to understand this reality and pass it forward to our children.

    If I ever resist and not comply with police.....I would expect to get shot myself. The failure is parents not teaching their children, lack of respect and being a criminal.

    Lebron is a moron that needs to keep his mouth shut.

    Black people are (or should be) scared of other blacks more than they should be scared of police....

    The main issue is there is no father in the household. They take no responsibility for their "baby mommas" or the child once born. The kids are born into a bad situation. Most grow up and repeat he cycle. The war on poverty has enabled this to happen wit the government replacing the father in the household.

    Yup, all my points in my post mostly stem from a fatherless home.

    Hillary Clinton once wrote a book entitled "It Takes a Village". It conceptualizes how everyone a child comes in contact with over all the years it is growing up influences how that child grows up and who it becomes. IMO, it is a simplification for how the nanny state works. Less importance placed on parenthood and more importance placed on others to teach and raise the child. It is a flawed ideology because it leaves too much to others to fill in the gaps of missing parents. The so-called "village" often does not serve as the child's best interest and so it grows up without all the lessons needed to succeed in life. Socialism in a nutshell. In practice, it is inadequate to sustain a viable society. Jacob Black is yet another example of how leaving it to the village to raise a child is a bad idea. Nothing compares to having two committed parents to raise a child and teach it all it needs to know to survive and succeed in this world today and in the future.

    I have a buddy who is there as National Guard. He said he was reaching for a knife. Oh, the NG got live rounds too but isn’t allowed to say how many.

    Civilians are so uneducated on police responsibility to protect one another and the public in general. When they bark out lawful orders as they did in abundance in this situation, they are in effect giving fair warning to comply or they will/are authorized to use lethal force. It's an extremely serious business that needs to not be taken so lightly. They are trained professionals so don't fear them, just comply and allow them to do their job. The utter stupidity of kids and young adults today demonstrates on a massive scale how they are not taught today to respect police as older generations have been taught. It's our failure and we have to own it rather than blame the police and attribute it to systematic racism. Civilians with a platform like Lebron James need to shut the hell up. He has no idea what he is talking about and is only making things worse.

    Don't be afraid of the police. They have a job to do. Let them do their jobs, which includes complying when them when they interact with you.

    The way police responded it had to be something that was provoked and now we know it was.

    Another black guy shot and killed by a deputy in Los Angeles. He had a gun and fought with the officer but that won’t matter either. I expect more sports games boycotts :rolleyes:
