I saw the video of Philly. He was chasing the officers and they finally decided this wasn't working. Also did anyone ask if they even had tasers???? I didn't notice any. Moral of the story, "Don't bring a knife to a gunfight!"

They were told not to arrest the looters wonder if that was followed by just shoot them. That would stop it.

LEOs are trained for various situations, they know what to use when. This POS got what he deserved. You charge cops after being told to drop the weapon and you get lead poisoning center mass, no warning shots to the legs like some idiots (Biden) think.

I wonder why we do not see more people standing up and protecting their businesses like the rooftop Koreans in these towns where the riots and looting have occurred?
It's a good question. The answer is probably a combination of things, many of which we don't know. It does seem like the worst riots of which I'm aware have taken place in areas where there are few, if any, "mom-and-pop" businesses. In the case of this thread, the Wal-Mart got hit hard. Nobody wants to kill anyone over the Walton family's billions.

In Minneapolis, the worst of the damage was done to a stretch of stores downtown which are wealthy national chains, like Apple, Timberland, Nike, etc.

Also, we've all noticed that the riots are in democrat-controlled cities. LA back in '92 was not nearly as left as Philly is today, or as left as Minneapolis, Austin, Seattle, Portland, NYC, etc, etc, etc are today. The democrats in these cities today are gun-hating, brainwashed morons who couldn't fire an AR if you gave them one.

Also, the rooftop Koreans were a very different group of immigrants than you'll generally see these days. They were not indoctrinated democrats who want only to kneel before the government, they were an old-school breed of immigrants who came to America for our liberties and a chance to succeed through hard work, unlike many of today's immigrants, who are here because of the democrats and their bribes for votes social programs.

I believe that would be a very possibly accurate assessment Etmo.

I would add this as a possibility as well, that many of them maybe started out supporting the protests, and the cause, until it was too late and they then realized they had hitched their wagon to the wrong horse. They may have even bought into the cause, and even believed in the BLM and their false narrative, and didn't even know the truth.

Back in '92, there was a group that stood their ground and protected their shops. A few people have emulated them since but not many. The group that stood up were called "Rooftop Koreans".

I wonder why we do not see more people standing up and protecting their businesses like the rooftop Koreans in these towns where the riots and looting have occurred?
Perhaps because in the liberal cities they are afraid of being charged with murder?

Some are, just not getting media attention like the Rooftop Koreans did back then. Here is a vid of a crazy bitch complaining that Aaa-rabs were standing armed in front of their stores not allowing her to loot!:


Should the guys in the vid be referred to as "Sidewalk Arabs"???

:loaded: :laughing:

The guy with the knife had previous charges of weapons, assault, drugs. Got off if he would just take lithium (bipolar?). Guess that didn't work. So there is a reason the poice council crew want psyc docs on scene, to prescribe more drugs for thugs. Cops get a flashlite.
