I am not usually one to get involved or jump on the bandwagon of riots over things that at most should only be peaceful demonstrations. I have responded to these types of actions many times in the past 19 years I have been involved in law enforcement as a reserve (A reserve does not get paid for their service to the public – IE: A Volunteer Officer or Deputy).

I have no issues with peaceful demonstrations, that is a right we all have in America.. but at some point people need to go to jail… it is why we all voted on the laws we have in our society.
You tell me…. is there a solution?
