Folks, why do we always have to wait for the French to lead us? The cops in this country are out of hand. No one burned down the Sandy Police Department, after Bergin murdered Fouad Kaady in cold blood. No one burned down Portland over the dozens of innocents they have killed, most recently egregiously, Jim Chasse. We, as Americans, are too conditioned to believe that these thugs are heroes, worthy of the praise the press lavishes on them. Get over it. They are killers.
