#6 Take all their armed private security away now.

#7 Policing is going to happen, since even uber-libs would be uncomfortable with thugs wandering around their celebrity mansions. The options are:
1- Publicly funded LEO's.
2- Privately funded security guards.
3- Heavily armed citizens of all shapes and sizes.
Which of those three groups is most likely to defer to liberal concerns?

#8 /\ 4- Armed gangs controlling their 'turf' being paid in 'protection money'. Welcome back to Mogadishu!

#9 Thr police should be equipped for community policing. No SWAT, No armored vehicles. these should only be available at from a higher level

#10 I'll take heavily armed citizens with corpse pick up 3 times a week. (It's Texas, they are going to stink fast). How fast will they be screaming to have the police back after a few weeks of "See criminal, ventilate criminal"

#11 No Po-Po and I might move to Hollywood and start a new business. Drive by shooting tours of celebrity houses.

#12 Rich areas get de-policed first then.

#13 Thye got private armed security behind the high walls in their gated enclaves...

Ask them to get rid of all the above while they do that.

#14 A year from now when these places are like Somalia it'll be blamed on Trump. At least they'll try. The refugees that fled the cities hopefully will have learned the lessons of liberalism the hard way.

#16 Performance venue security and film/TV shoot security are provided, at least in part, by cops and ex-cops.

It would make for fascinating drama if Seth Rogen was on the set with someone deeply unhappy with his stances if/when productions ramp up again.

Not that anything will happen.

The measure of our "hero policeman" has been taken, and we know they'll take the knee.

#17 For celebrity types their interaction with police is more likely that they are being arrested than asking them for help.

When under direct orders to do so and under the captain’s eye, charger dear. That doesn’t speak to what’s in their hearts when they are off the clock or out patrolling, but rather shows that the senior officers are doing their best while being actively undermined by their political masters.

Do remember that some Rantburgers are or have been police of one sort or another (not to mention just about every other job and category of humanity). Painting in absolutes risks bumping into that reality. and I will not tolerate flame wars when we need to support each other against the real evils that beat on our gates.

Well, I seem to remember some other people who claimed to be only following orders.

#21 Charger, also remember a large number of folks on this site are well versed in history and when you compare kneeling under orders to the holocaust even in jest you lose all credibility.

#22 I wasn't jesting.

People who have a responsibility to enforce order are selectively applying the power to do so upon those who have been designated "bad", and have been literally kneeling to those who have been designated "good".

And the "good" ones have been doing way more damage than the "bad" ones.

And the "bad" ones contribute way more to paying the salary and benefits of law enforcement than the "good" ones.

This is in direct contradiction of their oath to enforce the law equally.

Going by tw's comment, this unequal application of law enforcement is being done according to orders from their superiors.

They could choose not to obey those orders.

They could resign.

They don't.

Which is fine.

It is after all, their choice.

And I am free to point out what that reminds me of.

#23 Nonsense, Charger. Bad cops are identified and weeded out via due process. Eventually.
