A Dark Day
I have utter disgust for anyone that shoots a cop. Everyone has a right to protest and free speech. When that protest turns to masks and hidden faces to avoid prosecution, throwing of any dangerous object or weapons of any kind, then your rights end.
At that point in time, any method used by police to quell violence is fair. When things get out of control, take away any bull horn used to egg on the protesters, arrest anyone wearing a mask or wearing a hoodie with the top up, and any other means necessary to stop the violence.
This includes rubber bullets, tear gas, water hoses and, if necessary, police discharging their firearms. I'm fed up with a group that constitutes less than 15% of the nation's population causing so many problems.
All instances of police abuse should be addressed in the courts, not by people in the street and Rufus Obama throwing in his two cents every time there's a shooting involving blacks promotes racial divide. Obama has cause a lot of racial division during his presidency.

A foursome of guys is waiting at the mens' tee while a foursome of women is hitting from the ladies' tee. The ladies are taking their time.
