    They arrested a guy in Oregon for starting a brush fire with a Molatov Cocktail & after his release(?) he started six more & was then rearrested. Crazy world.

    With the current mob mentality and atmosphere of "guilty before proven innocent so let's destroy a city" maybe just hand him over to the homeowners that have lost everything including loved ones and turn our backs.

    I have to share a story.

    Back during the Reagan administration, I worked in what was known as "central east side industrial area" which is directly across the river from downtown Portland, Oregon.

    When the President defunded the state hospital system, you know, the place where society used to send those so hopelessly mentally f****d up that they could not exist without help. We started getting what I call the original homeless, who were, in fact, the former residents of the state hospital, who had simply been let into the streets to fend for themselves. Trust me, the ones I encountered did not have the ability to do so!

    One stand out experience, actually my first experience with them, we had a nut case sleeping and peeing in one of our trucks that at that time, were parked on the street in front of the business. After several days attempting to block him and deal with him, and he was so helpless that when you would try to talk to him, he would go blank face and start turning half circles, back and forth right, the left.

    I called the police, they came and one of the cops initially said they had no policy to do anything with the new releases who were flooding into Portland daily.. A few moments later, he came back to me, his face was completely ashen! He told me that he had gone to high school with the guy, he had actually been their class president! He told me that he was making an exception to their instructions to do nothing (what to hell were they going to do with him... the hospital system had been and is still closed) he would find help for him..

    My point is this.. well, do I need to say more?

    Many of these people on the street are completely legally INSANE and there is no system in our current society to do anything with them other than let them live in squalor on the streets of our cities.. Some of them are complete leaches who just are to frickin' lazy to do anything so they don't do anything, some are completely wrecked by addiction to Meth or other crap..

    My point being I guess, I don't want to live in a society where we have burnings, lynching's mob justice...

    This is THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA for Christs sake!

    We have people who work in the White House who are promoting armed insurrection should the incumbent lose the election and refuse to leave office...

    Keep it real folks!

    I WILL delete ANY post that recommends any such action... I believe we are headed to the most challenging time in our history.. I will not allow this site to sink into the ****hole!

    Neither do I Wayne. It seems right now we are headed there for a time. Scares me that this is accepted by so many and while I don't agree with how a FEW police are behaving I definitely do not agree with the reaction.
    I was being a little facetious. No attempt to offend.

    I get it Leo, I'm human and frustrated with the BS that's going on in the streets right now! Usually in situations like this, there would be a calming voice wafting over the land telling us that things will be better, we ARE better than this, we WILL become better humans and continue this experiment in self-rule...

    I am truly trying to keep this site non-political...

    My post, however feebly it attempted to be non-political, as well as this one, are going to be taken as quite political....

    God, I hope I have not opened the door!

    You did and we will all rush through it!
    Kidding.
    Problem is EVERYTHING lately seems to be political. Those of us that just want to move on and live our lives are being crucified for nothing we ever did but by association.
    Rant over, back to airplane porn!
