    For someone (black) to actually address the "systemic" (latest buzz word) violence and murder in the black community has to be considered a major miracle.

    Too late Mayor, your failure to act decisively with the criminal element has led to this little girls death.

    Well, maybe someone black and not conservative, yes, I'd have to say that's a good thing.

    Shot in the liquor store parking lot while her mom was getting some booze.
    ‘You shot and killed a baby:’ 8-year-old girl died after she was shot while riding with mother in Atlanta
    Likely a good idea not to shop in the inner city. Drive to suburbia to buy stuff. I never hear of shootings at the stores where we go. I have read reports of shootings at the government housing row apartments in our area. There are some shops near that, and I would never walk into one of them, too risky. See the cops frisking people in the parking lot there.

    No, but I dont mind if you do. I have thought about it, I actually have no problem with guns being carried including by me.
    I usually pray to the Lord that I wont have any trouble with 'x' situation, so far I have survived unscathed.

    Abraham a righteous man and a friend of God was a fierce warrior and commanded an army, killing the kings that had taken Lot prisoner and destroying their armies. Saul killed his thousands, and David his ten thousands.

    The USA provides its citizens the provision to protect yourself... I have seen innocent unarmed people who have been robbed, shot and killed without provocation. Even the use of pepper spray is something to be considered. Even if you take courses in hand to hand.. a kick in the groin, a punch in the wind pipe and solerplexis might one day save your life.

    yes, you can not count on police to be near to stop violent crimes, plus the response time when calling 911 could be a long time for them to come.

    And the criminal could claim you attacked them first, so the assault charge would be against you. You need friendly witnesses if you can find any.

    The Police are God's primary minister for protection. I believe Jesus also spoke of self protection to his disciples, telling them to buy a weapon (a sword). But we are in real trouble if we allow police to be abolished. I don't believe our society will let that happen.

    That didn't last long. Today , she's hinting that it's all Trump's fault.

    Just when I thought someone would force a conversation on all the black lives that don't matter to black lives matter.

    Silly me.:rolleyes:

    I didn’t bother to post earlier, because I tried to listen to this lady but gave up. At every point she just sounds whiny rather than talking straight and taking charge like a true leader. “I’m frustrated.” “We all have to do better.”

    She says she can hire and fire employees, but perhaps it would be better if she resigned and let someone in there who will do the job right. She’s letting thugs run her city, and then whining when they kill someone. Ridiculous.

    Oh, and she’s in the running for Biden’s VP, so you can be sure she’ll be politicking like a Dem.
