    Let the Republican bashing begin.

    Police Officers are carrying out the policies of the Mayor and the Police Chief.

    If Police are killing people in No Knock Raids…
    If Police are choking people…
    If Police are shooting people running away…
    If Police are violent…
    If Police are corrupted…
    If Police are poorly trained…
    If Police are incompetent…
    If Police are undisciplined…

    They are all of those things because of the Mayor and the Police Chief.

    Those are the persons who should be held accountable.

    Fischer fired the Police Chief.

    Fischer should, likewise, be fired. He should be impeached.

    Police, at this point, are scapegoats for the politicians.

    In nearly all of these cities, the Democrats are making policy.

    Perhaps, it is time to get rid of these Democrats.

    Police are killing people and are violent because Democrat policy makers are at fault here all across the nation.

    It would seem that Democrats are either incompetent or purposely creating this national crisis.

    Keep electing Democrats. Keep doing the same thing. I’m sure it will result in great change.

    And, no, this is not a call to vote for Republicans. I prefer them to the Blue chumps but they’ve helped lead America to this point as well.

    I feel like I have to navigate to other Kentucky sports sites in order to avoid all the politics that come with Matt Jones. I keep checking back here to see if the discussion has shifted to sports. Unfortunately I’m left disappointed. Matt and I don’t agree with a lot of things political, and that is perfectly fine. I still like the guy, however I don’t want his beliefs pushed on to me every time I come to the site. I’ll check back in a few months to see if anything has changed.

    The guy was NEVER going to run! All he wanted was the attention. It’s all about ‘look at me, look at MEEEE!
