"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
“There is never an excuse for violence against police or for those who would use this tragedy as a cover for vandalism or looting. There’s also no excuse for police to use excessive force against peaceful protests or to throw protesters in jail for lawfully exercising their First Amendment rights,” said Obama. And here in the United States of America, police should not be bullying or arresting journalists who are just trying to do their jobs and report to the American people on what they see on the ground,” he said here
“Peaceful” protesters? Where? What was Obama seeing?
Our “JV” President, Barack Hussein Obama, has once against interjected himself into that of which he knows nothing about. He knows nothing about the case, because ‘facts’ haven’t been released, do to violence in Missouri. Violence which includes death threats towards cops. and an attack on an officers wife.
As is typical of Barack, he’s thrown his personal opinion, if not biased, into on going police investigations. Just as he did the Trayvon Martin case. A case which proved out that little Trayvon (the son Obama would have had) was an angry thug, who had been been a quite a bit of trouble before he attacked and tried to kill Zimmerman.
And once again, Obama had to take an uncalled for verbal punch at the police, contending with violent protesters and arrogant journalist. The journalist who had been asked by the McDonald Manger to leave — and who refused. Sorry forks, you can’t do that.
These “journalist” smarted off to the cops, according to the and Manager or bystanders, and said, “Can’t you see we’re working”.
The Manger asked them to leave since they were there daily, using McD’s as an office and occasional ordering coffee. The Manger was well within his rights. As the journalist lingered and moved slowly, they got arrested (attitude can be everlasting, people). They were soon released from jail without charges. They took their arrogance and contempt at being ‘special people’, with them
It was nice that Obama called for calm — but again, to chide the police who are dealing with Molotov cocktails being thrown at them, theft, vandalism, fires, personal attacks and death threats. . . . grow up Obama. You seem to find it impossible to do a descent job at what you were hired to do: protect Americans (not illegals). Keep your busy body nose out of police business, who contend with smart-ass people with “attitude” everyday. People rather like you, sir.
