Still no commentary on lack of arrests!

WTF?!

There was violence all over the place and only 4 arrests? Thousands came with home-made military gear and weapons. AND no talk of this in the media, that I saw. I did hear some about it on NPR, but not about lack of arrests.

Cop sanctioned Nazi violence needs to be a leading headline, discussion, commentary and investigation. I open that discussion here.

1. Agreed

This is the crux of the problem. The police/troopers need to respond.

4. Institutional racism is the root of it.

AND it must be discussed in the media!

2. Yep, the double standard is telling and only bolsters the racists.

6. Lack of action and the silence in the media and leadership about it

does indeed only reinforce it.

3. And the driver of the car was

charged with second degree murder, not first degree murder, even though he deliberately drove the car into the crowd of people - and meant to kill as many as he could. It was premeditated FIRST DEGREE MURDER!

5. He should be charged with terrorism!

If he was a middle-eastern decent American, the charge would have been terrorism.

7. I heard one reporter say she had seen a group walk by with their rifles slung over their shoulders

and they reeked of booze. It's amazing more people weren't killed.

12. OK. It fits with how I think of them.

I also saw pictures of riot police lined up in full gear - doing nothing!

13. Me, too. Can you imagine if the aggressors had been black protesters?

It would have been a blood bath.

16. Indeed!

And police vans in waiting to be filled up with the people they arrested.

9. For real

How many hundreds if not thousands of arrests have happened at left wing marches, which are often peaceful and if they're not, it's usually a small band of people doing the "violence" which usually consists of some vandalism. Yet that doesn't stop police from arresting hundreds if not thousands of people and claiming they needed to do so for public safety.

Yet when these assholes show up in armor, brandishing weapons, causing chaos, drive their cars through a bunch full of people, there's only 4 arrests? That don't smell right at all.
