It’s pretty simple stuff. Don’t break the law, all laws, and you won’t be pulled over or stopped by the big bad boogeyman–the police. And if you are pulled over anyway due to profiling (which I don’t condone), make sure there’s nothing illegal in your car that they can pin on you. Show respect for the police, provide current registration, insurance, and license; and you should be good to go.
Don’t throw rocks, bottles, Molotov Cocktails, pipe bombs, smoke bombs, firecrackers, bricks, garbage cans, fire extinguishers, or fire bombs.
Don’t break glass storefronts, trespass, ignore curfews, assault, spit, invade, stab, steal, mug, shoot, or pass counterfeit money.
Don’t set afire, deface, or destroy cars, stores, banks, structures, monuments, flags, churches, restaurants, statues, or any property.
Don’t vandalize property with graffiti. Don’t ransack property. Don’t touch a police officer. Don’t sit on public streets blocking traffic. Don’t surround or touch cars on public streets. Don’t take or sell drugs. Don’t drive drunk or act disorderly. Don’t disrespect the flag.
The police don’t get paid enough for the risk they take every day they step out their front door to protect us. Neither do the National Guard that was so callously kicked out of a D.C. Hotel. That mayor needs to resign.
You may assemble peacefully to mourn, chant, sing, carry signs, and walk on property designated for assembling by local authorities.
And lastly, to the tightly-wired social media girl crying in a video that her parents are racist: That was as disturbing as the George Floyd video. The first rules in life you have to obey start in your home. Obey and respect your parents. They gave birth to you and have cared for you throughout your young life. Show some respect. They are older and wiser than you. You have been influenced by the group shaming media mob and your parents are just trying to settle you down. They know best. You’ll realize someday, when you snap out of it, that your parents will love you more than anyone that enters your life. Grow up!
