44. Why? Is there a limit on how much we should talk about important issues that affect the American

People, especially Minority Communities when it comes to the police? Have any of those cops who nearly killed protesters like Scott Olsen and Kayvan Sabeghi, two Iraq Veterans exercising the rights they were told they risked their lives for, been even identified yet, let alone arrested? Let us know when that happens it's been seven months and we are still waiting.

What is the time limit for talking about cops who are out of control, who are nearly killing civilians for peacefully protesting? Should we wait until they actually do kill someone? They've come close so many times these past few months, as you must know surely?

How about the Iraq War? When Bush was lying about that, was there a limit on how often we should have talked about it?

How about torture? Is it 'just letting off steam' to talk about these, to Democrats at least, I KNOW they are not important to Republicans who like to shut us about them, but is it just 'letting off steam' now, to address these issues?

Since when did this new rule regarding police brutality and/or other important issues become something Democrats are advocating? I say we do not talk about them enough, in fact since Bush left office it's as if all these issues suddenly went away.

This is absolutely unbelievable to see here on a Democratic board. To say we should limit speaking about criminal activity on the part of our public servants. How about the victims? Think they might agree with you?

Thank you to Fire and every other Democrat who is attempting to hold them accountable and to our elected officials, certainly not Republicans, but the Dems in NYC who are taking action against the police.

I'd love an explanation for your comment. It makes no sense to me.
