I'll tell you where the cops were. They are on the online forums helping organise. They are sympathetic. They are the terrorists fellow travellers. Cops are not our friends in any in this war on right wing terror.

Chris Cornwell I've been robbed at knife point. There was no police officer following me around for my protection. I think you misunderstand me. Society needs police. The problem in the USA has become a prevelant us vs them attitude. Plus men with 'shortcomings' are naturally attracted to the right wing and law enforcement. They can then fulfill their need to dominate other men but can do it with the power if the state behind them. Easy way to fix this is more women require college degrees in cops and stop the military to low enforcement pipeline that exists in the USA. That's a good start. You're welcome.

space_junk So when you are being robbed at gunpoint, maybe I will take my sweet time responding to the call since I am not your friend.

Damn.. everyone can feel the hatred, but to know how quickly even looking at it was shut down by the government is infuriating.
