Since when>

Since when is your life more important than mine. All lives should matter.

Since when is it OK to torch courthouses, police precincts, private businesses or smash windows, loot, tear down statues in all out destructive criminal behavior.

Since when is it OK to defund the police based upon the demands of a lawless few. Safety should be the number one priority of local and state government.

Since when it is Ok to refuse to wear masks, when wearing masks protect the wearer and the public. what’s your plan to eradicate this dangerous pandemic so lives can be saved, people can go back to work, and kids can go back to school.

Since when is it OK to attack religion, referring to my religion and faith as “white Catholics” as though we are racist. I support Bishop Daly who took exception to this characterization.

Since when is it OK for athletes to kneel during The National Anthem in protest. They are disrespecting the flag of the United States, the police, and the military who fight and die to protect our freedom.

Since when is it OK to try to rewrite history because of the demands of mob rule.

Enough is enough. I agree with Jim McDevitt ( former U.S. Attorney and SPD law enforcement director) that cities under siege (Seattle, Portland) by violent activists who have hijacked peaceful protest. They are using the tragic death of George Floyd. This violence is counterintuitive and voids the basic message.
