55. "But the protester wasn't following orders to disperse!"
> The man shot two cops, was armed and didn't surrender according to orders

"But the protester wasn't following orders to disperse and the
crowd was throwing rocks and bottles at the cops!"

The day will come. If we're lucky, you'll remember that you were
in favor of cops as judge, jury, and executioner.
