I'm thinking about changing my mind. I would like everyone to realize ALL lives matter. If you break the law and act like an uncontrollable "donkey" then you deserve to be arrested. If you flee and point weapons at the cop, you deserve to get shot! If I have offended anyone, think real hard about why. Then consider, EVERYONE ELSE BESIDES YOU!

@mommaj Is this in response to the burning and rioting in Milwaukee, WI over night? FYI I am with you there and could care less if someone is offended by the truth!

It's about all of the rioting and the idiocy of people threatening cops and then thinking there should be no consequences. It's about people in customer service not wanting to wait on cops who put their lives on the line for those people and others every day. It's about the people shooting whites and cops at the black lives matter rallies. It's about people thinking there shouldn't be consequences for them based on skin color. I didn't personally drag anyone away from their homelands and tell them to work to pay off their debt. If the people alive today want to go back to "their homeland" the government should give them a ride there! I would personally pay for a couple of them to go. LOL I just want everyone to love themselves enough to respect and like others.

@LoriAMoore Exactly. If you wanted to protest, you wouldn't commit crimes that would cause the police to arrest you. They do nothing for "their cause".

That is so good to point out. Many of us need to show more respect not only to lives of other humans but all life, plant, animal and such. Think of all the animals taken just for sport and not for the purpose of filling one's belly with nourishment.

Exactly @lookatdesktop I think those who kill for sport or to cull a species other then ours should be euthanized. I just read an article about how the remaining Mexican Wolves only have limited DNA variations which means it will be very hard to replenish the wild thanks to the thoughtlessness of trophy hunters and other idiots who think they have the right to cull.

talking Milwaukee? I agree. you have every right to protest peacefully, the second you start looting, being an arsonist, pillaging, and destroying properties you become a criminal, and your life that matters so much, I really do hope, gets stuck in jail for a long long time.

Amen! I am getting so tired of the lawlessness. People seem to feel they can do whatever they want and not be held accountable. I don't get it. If your life matters, put it to good use. When you are a common criminal I am not going to have any respect for you and thus it really doesn't matter what you say, I'm not going to listen.

If there was an organization called "White Lives Matter" we'd dismiss it as "racist," but we (actually, the media) accepts a racist notion that only one skin color matters. Life matters. If you think you need to put an adjective in front of that statement you're wrong.

That's my point. Lives matter regardless of race or religion. If people want to continue to act like there are no consequences they will continue to get hurt. They do nothing for "their cause". In fact, they make people less likely to support "their cause".

I agree. Hitler and the nazi's didn't invent racism either. Racism has been around a long time. They only expanded on it. Anyone can feed on it but the evil thing will only come back to bite them. If an organization is only about anger then it can not win anything but be very much against what others have dreamed about...

That is one of the biggest problems ever. Catering to races because it MIGHT look like prejudice. BS! It's prejudicial to NOT arrest someone doing something wrong just because they are black. If you are of color and are wondering why more whites aren't chased and shot by cops, maybe think! Most white people don't run from police and they don't pull weapons or they are shot! It's not about race it's about right and wrong and facing consequences.

Everyone will never agree on anything. The best I can hope is to set an example and help others follow. I hate to complain about things without trying to do something about it. So, I stopped at the local police department. Found out there are no organizations to support cops. Individuals send cards or church ladies send cookies. I guess I can always cook for them.
