History feels like it is repeating itself… rioting, looting, protests.. just like when I was in my teens. Martin Luther King would be appalled we haven’t learned to be peaceful yet.
Regarding the current protests, looting and violence:
- There are police departments where officers have marched in solidarity with protestors.
- There are police departments that have issued press releases condemning the Minneapolis police actions. As they should be. Professionals don’t behave that way.
- These communities, and there are two near me, haven’t required curfews and haven’t had any violence. These aren’t small towns, either.
Is there a lesson here, someplace?
