17. Is this America
How can it be shop lifting if you haven't left the store
unless you ingest it? Are the police still governed by
"minimum force necessary" the same as the general
public? Being they were off duty they should not have more
authoritarian rights than anyone else. The police need to be
drug tested for steroid use, if found guilty they should
surrender their career or at least the same as athlete's but
they carry guns????
Police across this nation have taken an aggressive stance
against the public they have sworn to serve.
Can anyone tell me the guidelines to using pepper spray? The
cops can spray it on peaceful protesters but the US didn't
like Saddam using gas on his own people, the same chemicals
our government provided to him! 
 People we need to wake up in this country and take it
back!Your representatives to congress can walk out on
committee's in the name of partisanship! Our supreme court is
governing by partisanship instead of upholding the
Constitution of the United States! Our executive branch can
not dictate to the judicial branch! It now has come down to
the local level and US citizens that have occupation of
police officer are pitted against US citizens as general
public, we are turned against each other. I would have
avoided the draft in 1971 and gone to Canada had i known this
is how it would be! At least I would have decent Health Care.
"We The People" need to unite again and demand our
rights as laid down by Franklin D Roosevelt in addition to
the Bill of Rights. I can go on but as long as we divide by
Party lines this country will continue to be run by
Corporations buying political candidates. The very same
corporations that employ millions of citizens. Nothing is
stronger than a united citizenry!!
