America - its all a bit odd...

.
The people in the video were given repeated orders to go inside. In most of the US, failure to comply with a policeman’s order is a crime. They were wearing face disguises (as opposed to virus masks), and therefore possibly appeared to the officers as potential protagonists. There were given several instructions to go inside and failed to do so And stood there in defiance of the orders filming the Police like the gormless morons they clearly are. They got off lightly with a paintballing rather than being arrested..

alas for the ‘Light em up’ Jack Booted Thugs, the ‘gormless goon’ they were shooting at was a very well educated white woman who posted their ghetto Aktion for the world to see.

also, as has been posted, the city ordnance is to be off the street during curfew, nothing about inside, behind closed doors. The Police were out of control And acting like an occupying army
 
They are not the types of folks who will be flying gay pride flags. The folks recording everything were told to go inside several times and they did not. If LE went to far in the eyes of the masses, then they will vote their displeasure in November.
Of course that no matter what they think they had no right to tell people to go inside... their word is not law.

Mostly that German bloke and his mates.
Well, Von Brown got them up into space, Francis Bacon kept them up there alive, Peter Armitage helped them land on the moon and crucially be able to take off again. It was a massive team effort, not exclusively an 'all American' one though.
BTW, the first flight Director was a Brit ;)
 
By all that is holy, why the actual f should you "disperse" from your own front door ?
To prevent people from getting hurt, if a mob is on the way.

To also help prevent people from coordinating with other groups, as to the disposition and actions of LE. All it takes is a few people with cell phones to coordinate locations and an encounter can be set up.

It does seem quite a few outside groups are using this situation to stir the pot around all the major metropolitan areas of the country.

What hope is there of an impartial police force who uphold the law as written if they're dependent upon elections?

The Police were acting in a Public Order capacity in a city under great stress, and here’s some idiots that are either “spectating” or about to become a threat. The Police had no way of knowing which. They gave a perfectly legal order to “go inside”, and repeated it several times. Failure to comply.

If the woman filming was so well educated, the best course of action would have been to have put the camera on a windowsill inside, and left it filming with everyone inside. But no, not that sharp, apparently.

”Go inside”. Not that hard to comply with. Indeed they did comply, once firmly encouraged to do so. Why not just avoid the situation in the first place?
 
It won't be long before they join the list of 'failed States' Ironically, a list of countries the US decided they should 'save' by being the police of the world. If this is how they police their own.....
Quite.

Vietnam - shoot the carp out of anything that moves
Afghanistan - shoot the carp out of anything that moves
Iraq (apoligies Eye-rack) - shoot the carp out of anything that moves
'Murica - well you get the idea.

Bringing peace and democracy to the world. Aye, that'll be right.

Elections determine things like the level of funding local police departments will receive. The power of the purse can dictate much. But if people don’t want conservative types policing the areas they better find new candidates to fill the positions, or put their power in prayer.
 
Nope, and I work with LE on an almost daily basis. Most are pretty chill here.
I'm just flabbergasted that people who expend so much energy rabbiting about freedom and resistance to tyranny are this eager to make excuses for the authorities when they actually see it happening.

As the thread title states, it's a bit odd.
