    This isn't new tactics. It's the same old cowardice adults hiding behind children. Read the article catefuly and not selectively. Its the same as the Bible when it says "itching ears", this seems to be no different.

    Read what you want to see, I guess. Man, this world..... o_O

    if all the protestors were children would pepper spray be warranted? How many children are an acceptable amount or did the Police find the golden ratio?

    So if you jaywalk, cops have the right to pepper spray you? After all, you’re breaking the law and blocking a street.

    I know some parents who took their children to BLM protests in WV so they could see people protesting for their rights. Of course, all of our protests were peaceful. We never had any police do what these pigs did.

    Also, you cant just keep thinking in line with mainstream media. They will tell you "Police are bad, mmk?" And many people believe them. This is actually very scary because it means we have lost the ability to think critically, and soberly. We think a group of people is for the right thing, but they're standing up in vain for the wrong thing.

    I see. It is OK when you do it, wrong when they do it.

    Don’t resist police? I guess the protestors just should have turned around and walked away on Bloody Sunday at Selma, never mind the fact that the cops were totally in the wrong. I would love to meet one of those cops someday, just so I could call him a pig to his face. And for the record, I’m a former ADA. I support the police except when they exceed their authority. When they do that they are pigs. I’ve know of cases that had to be thrown out because the cops exceeded their authority.

    It really wouldnt surprise me if some of the parents deliberately took their kids to the front where the police were spraying the pepper spray to get the headline.

    Police officer: "But police chief, the protests are now turning into a violent riot! Stores are being looted! People are being killed!"

    Police Chief: Just use the pepper spray to make them disperse."

    Police officer: "But sir, they brought a child to the fight!"

    Police Chief: "My Gawd! All there is left to do is take a knee in solidarity and defeat. It was an honor serving with you."

    Then it seems as though police brutality isn't as much of a problem as people are saying. What rights are being protested over?

    If you read the OP you know this was to encourage people to vote.

    How does marching under the BLM banner encourage anyone to vote? No adult American citizen is prevented from voting (except convicted felons in some states, which I disagree with). Nobody is stopping these people from voting. This was not about voting, it was about pushing the BLM agenda, hence all the BLM shirts, flags, and masks in the crowd. They would have you believe that if a young black person approaches the polls, they're going to be attacked or dissuaded somehow, which is absolute nonsense. This is creating an issue where there is no issue. You can encourage your young people to vote without illegally blocking the street and getting into a scrap with police.

    This is so sad to see. Its bad enough the system has been hard on many of these people but the media is exploiting them getting them in the street protesting. They're pumping so much anger and emotion into them like that woman screaming at one point thats its just a peaceful protest. I feel so bad for them, then you got BLM using them, manipulating them, and pumping anger into them as well (anger and fear i should say). The parents are so lost that they teach the kids to hate police and hate Trump

    On the other side of the conflict, i feel really bad for cops too. Cops that work in rough cities respond to probably numerous domestic issues every day so they can be sworn at and spit on. There is definitely a problem with police brutality but you cant stereotype all cops, alot of them risk their lives to protect and serve. They get dangerous people and drugs off the streets, and fight human trafficking. A simple truth that has been lost in all of this is that regardless of race, things would be far worse for everyone if there was no cops

    Exactly.
    This is nothing but a socio-political tactic. Most of these people are probably well-meaning. They're following their "leader", this guy who thinks he's some kind of local celebrity and obviously has an ego the size of the moon. They're all riled up with the belief that their young people are downtrodden and can't vote, for some undoubtedly vague and never-explained reason by their "pastor". Because it's simply not true. But hey, being a hero is more fun than speaking facts.

    I really wish people who think that cops are all racist monsters, would volunteer to ride with the officers for a few days. When you're regularly being screamed at, threatened, harassed, attacked, even murdered, by one racial group, there is no other reasonable reaction but to become more wary and suspicious of that racial group. Their job is not to be socially appeasing, their job is to protect. Stop being violent and hateful, and they'll be able to lower their guard again. Just the way it works, people.

    And if anyone thinks this isn't an issue, I will gladly direct you to some video clips of this particular racial group assaulting and even shooting and killing police officers over recent weeks, and then laughing about it.

    Except this protest took place in North Carolina, where, sadly, efforts have been made to prevent blacks from voting. So yes, someone may be stopping these people from voting.

    No, it isn't. And it gets posted here routinely with the same four-letter word intensity.

    From the OP article, quote:

    "In a statement released Saturday evening, Graham police said Drumwright and the marchers hadn’t followed proper procedures for holding the event. The department said that it warned the group that it would not be allowed to close the road, said Lt. Daniel Sisk, a spokesman for the Graham police."

    The police are not to blame here. The lemmings who believe the law as dutifully legislated by elected officials no longer applies to them are.

    All of this idiotic caterwauling about voter suppression and "we were just going to the polls" is just that, idiotic caterwauling. If the local authorities allow your gathering but properly inform the group will not be allowed to block the roadways and then you go ahead and block the roadways, rational adults understand you then don't get to cry and whine because the police enforced the law. Ergo:

    "The department defended its use of pepper spraying, by saying, “[T]he assembly reached a level of conduct that led to the rally being deemed unsafe and unlawful by unified command.”

    Many liberal Democrats champion this notion that all violation of the law, to include rioting, looting, assaulting the police, shooting the police, rape, and murder, are all perfectly fine and acceptable as long as those crimes are committed in the name of Trump-hate. People right here in this "Christians Only" sub-forum believe and champion the exact same philosophy. But the tactics being employed here are obvious.

    Ask yourselves. What other organized group routinely and willfully places children in dangerous situations hoping they will be harmed in some manner so they can then be utilized as props to promote an agenda?

    The answer is, for one, radical Islam. Democrats are in good company.
