I agree. It's a hard situation. And all of the racial poor stirring by the left we have seen recently hasn't made things any better, it has just made things worse. And while BLM may have started with good intentions it managed to bring a platform to people who want to cause problems, and looting and rioting were horrible effects of that. And all the people saying Antifa isn't a group it's a concept. Ok yes it is a concept, but there are groups of people gathering and claiming to support Anti-fascism and they are causing harm and yet the white man is still blamed for all these wrongs. Moreover, if you want to call black Americans African Americans, than call the white Americans European Americans. After all, we are all Americans. We just have different heritage. My family want even here during slavery. I wasn't raised racist. My family came here to escape persecution where they lived but now we are called racist here. Not all "white" people are racist. Some of us are even part black. Just because we don't look like it didn't mean a thing. So can we just all stop the crap and save the energy to fight against the real racists???The blue line does exist.
It seems wrong to the layman, until you become a cop. Then you realize many in the public really are out to get you.
It is a difficult thing to balance for police, but I have no doubt if politicians were to erase the blue line it would magically reappear because these people are in danger, every day.
