    Cops aren't doing anything to stop riots. They aren't protecting people's property. They're enforcing draconian lockdown laws. And they're the only thing that gives authoritarian leaders from, mostly liberal, cities the confidence to trample on people's liberties. So what exactly are they doing other than making it more difficult to live safely and freely?

    It is the democratic/liberal cities problems along with the people who continually vote these idiots in. I am sure those cops would like to do more but they are handcuffed and told what to do. They might be fed up as well and saying under their breath ‘screw it, let it burn’........who knows.

    Those living in the cities who don’t like this, move, get out to the suburbs. It will not get better but much worse.

    When nobody has cops back, why should they put their necks on the line? How many times do they get to see their brothers in blue get fired, sued, and prosecuted just for doing their job exactly how they are trained to do so before they refuse to do it anymore. They don't get paid enough for that BS. If you want a riot stopped, call in the proper people for the job that are trained to do the job... the military. The police are not there to trample on people's rights. That's never one of their missions. Frankly, you have no idea what you are talking about. Defund the police is a priority of the socialist like BLM. When you join that sentiment you have declared yourself an enemy of the American people, IMO.

    I was being a little bit hypothetical, and this applies mostly to liberal cities. But what about what we're seeing now? People are rioting, looting business, attacking people in the streets for their political views, and harassing innocent people at restaurants. The police don't do anything to stop it. The governments don't send in the military to stop it. Some people decide to defend themselves. Those people get arrested by the same police who didn't stop the problem in the first place. Maybe police are getting fed up with following orders and seeing regular people suffer. But they're still the ones following those orders and preventing people from taking care of themselves.

    If I were you, I'd stay away from those cities and then it won't be your problem. Lots of people are leaving those cities for that reason, including the cops and the businesses.

    You live in Manhattan don't you? You are definitely stuck in the middle of bat**** crazy government officials making stupid decisions to appease the mobs. .I will be moving to the Houston area early next year. I am looking in the suburbs to be as far away from the city as possible.

    We have come full circle back to where this country was in the 60's. The bat**** crazy leftist youth of that day hated the police too. There is one huge difference this time. The leaders in the country are bending over backwards for the idiots when they ignored them in the 60's.
