Really scary. The issue with this, is that this attitude is only getting more and more prevalent. Are we still in America, land of free and healthy debates? It seems like this trend to silence anyone not conforming with some radical outlook and sentencing them to a virtual death sentence is only accelerating.

It didn't take long:
Boston’s mayor says he’s considering taking down a statue of former President Abraham Lincoln standing before a freed black man after a petition was launched for its removal.

Mayor Marty Walsh’s office said he’s “willing to engage in a dialogue with the community about its future in Boston” and looking into the process required to make the change, news station WCVB reported.

The statue, which is situated in the city’s Park Square, is a replica of the Emancipation Memorial in Washington and shows Lincoln with one hand raised above a kneeling man with broken shackles on his wrists.

nothing

it has to do with the cop being fired investigation pending and then being charged for doing what he was trained to do

He wasn't trained to use poor judgement.
I already said there should have been an investigation before being fired.

I don't know what qualifications you have (in JS) but I heard from a srgt that they're trained to shoot in such cases.

Article by Rabbi Avi Shafran. He's usually excellent although havent yet gotten a chance to read this article. He wrote Hamodia op Ed's for years....


What does Jewish tradition say about ‘Defund the Police’? It’s complicated.

Are you seriously comparing slavery in the Torah to slavery in America?!?
Good grief. Go learn what Biblical slavery was and then go open a history book.
I think Every Man A Slave by Sender Zeyv should be required reading because it compares and contrasts these things very well.

Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
BIG PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IDEAS.
