Where I disagree with the folks in here is that he visited the church solely for a photo op.  Of course him posing for a picture was for a photo but that is why he went there.  He went to support the church and survey the scene on the ground like all good Presidents do.  

Good, progress.  It was a photo op. Yes absolutely there can be a difference of opinion in his motivations for going there. You don’t believe he went there for the photo op, I believe he did. Neither one of us will ever know who’s right because none of us are in his head.  But if it was or wasn’t a photo op is not in question.

I was with you right up until the third sentence.  He never went inside and never met with a single member of the church.

He walked across.

He posed for the pictures.

He walked back.

Sure and she could be absolutely telling the truth but just didn’t hear it. That doesn’t mean the warnings didn’t come. So her statement while being truthful could also be incorrect. We just don’t know.  So I error on the side of what I seen in the past, and that is the police giving warnings about the impending gas bombs being dropped on people. It’s pretty standard protocol.  

I'm also going to assume that warnings were given, but it's abundantly apparent that they weren't obvious enough.

Why would President Biden be going to an NRA rally?

Good point. It's kind of like saying "Why would President Trump be going to a church?"

:lmao: 

Perfect.

:lmao:  Supporting the church by ejecting the clergy and surveying the scene by not surveying any of the damage or hardly even looking at the church.

Let's not forget the tear gas and force used to clear a path to the church, including on a priest of said church.

Smoke cannisters and pepper balls, apparently. Considerable and easily discernible difference to the people on the receiving end, I'm sure.

Kings 2:23-24: From there, Elisha went up to Bethel, and as he was walking up the road, a group of young men came out of the city and jeered at him, chanting, “Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead!” 24 Then he turned around, looked at them, and called down a curse on them in the name of the LORD. Suddenly two female bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the boys.

That's some good old fashioned smitin' right there.

Once again I was proven correct.

Listen to Noonan

Protesters were not peaceful and no tear gas was used.  

Like I said, common sense.

Protestors were peaceful by accounts of those on the ground...including those on the property of the church who heard saw and smelled and dealt with what was happening.

I saw one guy throwing a few things, and he was told to, and I believe this is a direct quote from a woman in the crowd, "Stop throwing ####!" So aside from one idiot, and unverified reports of stuff getting thrown at police from buildings, that still leaves the problem of chemical agents being used on peaceful protesters, which is a thing that happened whether you want to believe it or not.

TEAR GAS was not used.  Own it.  It is okay to be wrong.  My goodness.

If you go back and look real close at my post, nowhere in it did I mention tear gas by name. By your own assertion, pepper balls were used, which I took the liberty of seeing what went into them, and lo and behold, they share a similar chemical makeup to tear gas. Never mind the canisters found, I won't even talk about those, but the fact of the matter is that chemical agents were used on peaceful protesters.

It's okay to be wrong.

If you think disproving your assertion means I proved you were right, I have solemn news for you. But since this is as unproductive as ever, I'll leave you to whatever it is that involves being factually incorrect.

My 20 posts or so this afternoon defending myself from the echo chamber have been vindicated.  It feels great thanks.  Have a good night!

If you had claimed all afternoon (in likely more than 20 posts) that there was no tear gas maybe.  But that wasn't the case.

You are now splitting hairs that other chemical agents were used as well as police physically removing people which was still not justified.  Especially from church property.

But their tactics often result in it which would indicate retraining is needed.  As well as oversight  so such things dint get covered up.

Well, "often" is a little subjective, but it is true that 1 in 1000 black men in America can expect to die at the hands of police. So there is a problem.

I'll have you know my goalposts are set in stone, thank you very much. This whole fiasco started because a cop who had prior complaints killed a person, and people are sick of living in fear from people who are supposed to serve and protect. Their training is inadequate, their military style weaponry is unnecessary, and their public relations are an outright tragedy. They need to make sweeping changes, and it needs to happen yesterday.

I didn’t question your numbers.

Lets try again. Are you saying these killings are all the fault of the police?

What percentage is the police’s fault?

I gave you the source of the information and it doesnt break the stat down by fault or percentages, just gives the raw statistic. Which itself is troubling.

It’s troubling, but I don’t know how anyone can blame the police for the raw statistic without knowing how many are the fault of the police and how many arent

“Hold officers accountable who use excessive force. But there’s no evidence of widespread racial bias.”

”a police officer is 18½ times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is to be killed by a police officer”
