Whoa whoa whoa! Let's not get crazy, here! That was a justifiable governmental action designed to reunite an individual with the blessings of universal socialism.

A few of my more... liberal... Facebook friends (including a friend from college) are losing their minds over "Trump's Secret Police."

AOC to introduced bill requiring federal officers to wear identification including the department they work for, a badge number, and their last name.  They didn't think through putting in an exception for undercover LE.   :facepalm:

More scenes from last night's riot.

In the reporting, they said the Fed's rushed out and attacked the rioters attempting to break in.

I had to do some digging, but I actually found some footage of that:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6XicBBN1l4&t=2m26s

I confess I am somewhat flummoxed by the fact that a bunch of these protesters have decided to leave there house for the protest with weapons and they choose.......clubs.

I don't think we are really at the point of violent overthrow of the government yet, but these folks clearly do. And they choose.......clubs.

I don't get it.

I think it's because many of them are just plain dumb.  However, some of the peaceful protesters have been seen carrying firearms, so I suspect it's just a matter of time until they get sporty with them.

If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

Portland Mayor goes to have a Ted Talk with rioters, it doesn't go well from all sides.  Rioters want him to abolish the police and resign from office and the feds tear gas him.

I don't approve of the abolishing the police force...

I do like the thought of him resigning...

And I heartily applaud the Feds gassing him.

These are not reasonable people. These are not even angry people shouting their opinions. They are screaming lunatics shouting threats of physical harm. If they were in front of my house, I would consider their actions justification for simply opening fire into the crowd and emptying as many magazines as I could to defend my physical well-being and protect my property.

Portland. What a pimple on the ass of America.

Three officers may have suffered permanent eye injuries by lasers aimed at them by the rioters:

https://www.theblaze.com/news/federal-officers-blinded-by-lasers

Quote
The rioters also allegedly graffitied the building, blocked roadways, and lit several fires in the area.

According to Cline, when officers responded to put out the fires, lasers that can cause permanent blindness were shined in their eyes.

"We have three officers who currently have eye injuries and they may not recover sight in those eyes from those laser attacks," Cline said in the news conference.

Hoping that their injuries are not permanent.

If a rioter is wielding a laser capable of inflicting permanent blindness, is the use of deadly force justified?

In Oklahoma the standard for using deadly force in self defense is fear of death or serious bodily harm. In my mind being blinded falls squarely under serious bodily harm.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

This, plus you have to expect them to go after your firearm(s).

I mean if a cop (or anyone else known to be armed) is attacked, he can expect the assailants to take his gun and shoot him, or someone else.
