Quick to condemn

I am in my late 70’s and have never seen a more racially divided country than what we currently have.

Spending 20 years in the USMC where everyone is colorblind, I find it strange that our Commander in Chief quickly jumps on his podium to condemn.

In my pre-teen years I was taught first and foremost that policemen were your friends. I have known many and I know none who were not good honest men or women doing their jobs, protecting and serving.

Why would anyone think that it is OK to think that looting, stealing, burning buildings is an appropriate way to protest?
