I am proud of America. It is so good to see the protests going on all across America to honor the life of George Floyd. Justice to one Americans amounts to Justice to all Americans.
Shame on a few demonstrators who are resorting to violence and looting – they don not represent the values of the protestors or fellow Americans.
I salute the police officers who get out on the streets to protect us; we owe them a debt of gratitude. If you get a chance, stop by and thank the police officers. We need to do that often.
Shame on a few corrupt cops who are resorting to racism and violence against fellow Americans.
We need reforms in police training. We need to institute quizzes to determine if an officer as racist proclivities – he/she needs to re-trained or need to get rid of them. I am writing a letter of recommendation to the Department of Justice and Department of Homeland security and Invite your sane, pragmatic suggestions to incorporate into the message.
We must honor the protestors, and it is because of them, our freedoms are intact. God bless the protestors, God bless the police officers, God bless you and God bless America.
