Random destruction of property, blowing up police cars, "The only good cop is a dead cop" graffitied on a courthouse, don't snitch, defunding police -- not acceptable.
Huge crowds peacefully protesting for much needed change, supporting those unjustly injured, detained and killed by bad cops, demanding improved community interaction and services -- acceptable.
Standing together with those peacefully protesting, assuring their safety and defending their rights, arresting and prosecuting lawbreakers -- acceptable.
Randomly gassing, assaulting and arresting protesters -- not acceptable.
Forget Liberal vs. Conservative, Democrat vs. Republican. We all need to stand together as human beings in order to foster social justice for all.
