CT State Police Statement...

Annie Deighnaugh

We’re disgusted that anyone wearing a police uniform would do what we all saw in that video. We’re angry that the actions of a few will affect all of us. If you wear a badge and aren’t appalled by that what you saw, please turn it in and find a new profession; we don’t need you. For the sake of the community, for the sake of good law enforcement officers everywhere and for the sake of our country, enough is enough.

Yes...exactly!

We need to see more of this if we are to heal from this tragedy. City by city and each locality because we have no national leader at this point.

Just let them riot. How nice. This is inviting trouble and pandering to terrorists. This says that the looting and violence are fine and the police should stay out of it. This is the type of garbage that has no place in a civilized society.

If this is the person I think it is, a black female cop, then I saw her speech and she said much worse.

Really the least that can be done.

First of all the topic of this post, which is the CT State Police statement, has to do with the killing of George Floyd, not protesters, not the rioters, not the looters.

Secondly, here’s the black woman who heads up the CT State Police.

Wonderfu!

An announcement that more PDs need to make, and then follow words by actions.

No bad apples tolerated in US PDs!

I posted the link to this in the thread about the use of military to clear a peaceful protest. These are statements from Arlington Va police and county board (who had been assisting DC Park Police but withdrew their officers after federal LEO and military violently cleared the park) about George Floyd's murder:


“ACPD’s Civil Disturbance Unit responded to a mutual aid request by United States Park Police for assistance maintain peace and order on federal park land,” department spokeswoman Ashley Savage said. “ACPD began providing support [Sunday].”

The department has worked to maintain a positive relationship with the community over the years, including by handing out water to protesters in Arlington on Sunday. On Friday, amid nationwide protests over the death of George Floyd, police chief M. Jay Farr released a statement.

“It is impossible for us to achieve our mission if we lose the trust of our community,” he wrote. “When force is used, we must hold ourselves accountable for our actions.”

...

Separately Monday night, Arlington County issued a statement regarding Floyd’s killing.

“The Arlington County Board condemns the murder of George Floyd by police officers in Minneapolis, including the complicit officers who participated in and witnessed the murder,” the statement reads. “While the video was shocking, the circumstances of the murder should not be; they are too familiar in a nation where the disregard for and devaluing of Black lives is too common, and too often comes at the hands of the people sworn to protect them.”

It was on FOX last night, and they ridiculed her. Sometime between 8-11 central time. Feel free to look it up. I'm not going to look for a video because I saw it on TV. It wasn't some silly internet article.

Or more likely there was in fact someone on Fox, he’s just waiting for enough people to say there wasn’t before he posts a link or video, and then when it’s pointed out it’s not the person who wrote the statement he’ll say he never said it was. It’s all a game.

The pause you hear is the mad search for a TV clip...... :)

meanwhile, state troopers joined hands with protesters in a prayer circle on I 84. The governor has said they will handle this ' the Connecticut way', not with domination.

Of course. Your attempt to spin my words was very weak. I never said what you thought you read, Read my words and don't let your imagination run away from you. :^)

Lurker just name her or approximately what her position is or approximately what she said, or let it go. Or better yet, admit that from the very start you were addressing the riots when that had NOTHING to do with the state police statement.

Why folks do you waste your time this way, especially on such an important thread?

A comparably uplifting & important message appeared on tonight's news covering Newark, NJ, which surprisingly, did NOT experience riots & looting this week.

Apparently, the peaceful protesters & authorities united together, told the looters & rioters that they were not from Newark, weren't wanted there & wouldn't be allowed to cause havoc & destruction there. They kept the peace in their town; may we all learn from this.

They aren't capable of having an intelligent debate and play their silly games, of course. I'm used to it and don't expect anything less.

There are no peaceful protesters. The people you call "peaceful protesters" are enablers.

"We come in peace."

Yeah, sure. We can see that. Our country looks like a war zone, thanks to their peaceful protests. People are being killed in these "peaceful protests". Cops are being murdered in these "peaceful protests". Some people are boarding up their windows and writing minority owned and black owned, in fear of their own people. Lamb's blood in a spray can.

I'm not worried about it. The left is so far behind and it isn't my job to keep them up to speed. Act like an adult and I might be willing to help.

Well then using that logic, there are no good cops. The people you call "good cops" are enablers.

Irony much?

Ignoring the deflection, I assure you that discrediting your posts are no herculean effort... However, I don't consider correcting ignorance a waste of time.

But since you are concerned about my time, I responded while waiting for something to download and so my opportunity cost was actually ZERO... I would have been staring at my office wall, and while that well may be more productive than pointing out a few ironies to you, it is hardly precious time.

Sorry, Karen, but there was complaint yesterday that not enough attention was being paid to her posts - so this was the attention. Admittedly, this particular thread has allowed a pretty easy razz, but a well earned one!
