@13:50 [In response to the level of violence faced by officers, resulting in 49 officers injured]:“I want to be clear, the Chicago Police Department does not want to engage in violent interactions with peaceful protesters. But when the law is being broken, or has been broken, our oath demands that we act. This is not a choice for our officers, this is a requirement of our oath, even if that means protecting a statue.”
@18:55:“We just don’t want to believe people would act this way toward us. That they would take advantage of our sacred right: The First Amendment... We cannot assume that protests are going to be peaceful, based on these actions and others.“
@28:05 we find out a permit was never issued for the protest.Journalist: Do you believe the organizers of the protest were aware that the violence was planned to be a part of this?
Brown: God, I hope not...but it sure looks like it.
“We’ll take any and all help and we’ve made numerous requests... and we have great relationships with our local Federal partners and we hope to continue that.”
These assholes need to be jailed, end of. For those 21 and under, start holding their parents responsible as well as themselves. Let's see how hilarious that is to them.
21 and under...18 is an adult...the parents can’t be held responsible for their adult children’s behavior. If you have young adults..or even teens..you’ll know how impossible that can be to just have a rational convo with them.These assholes need to be jailed, end of. For those 21 and under, start holding their parents responsible as well as themselves. Let's see how hilarious that is to them.
