so it is safe to just not get involved rather than to get hit with a possible lawsuit.
In big cities people are probably more worried about getting shot than sued.
Exactly. Not to mention that all 50 states and the District of Columbia have “Good Samaritan” laws that provide some level of protection from lawsuits when acting to help others in distress.

> Yes, the usual whataboutery from the usual suspects is on show. Tediously predictable.
Trump clearly pandered to the ‘poorly educated’ to use his own words, and these low grade morons actually swallowed his stolen election conspiracy theory. They were egged on by frauds preying upon the slow and the mentally unstable.
An awful day for a fine country. A pity the dregs of that great country hit the headlines.

It is simply amazing that anyone who claims to have any love or patriotism for the US can make excuses for the insurrection that Trump stoked.

> The problem with this argument is that the veteran was not directly threatening the life of anyone. There wasn’t a single politician in sight and she was not even armed. Trespassing, a misdemeanor, isn’t a good excuse for shooting someone who is unarmed.
You forgot the part about her being at the head of an unhinged mob of insurrectionist Trump supporters. That’s some rather important context that you have omitted in your attempt to minimize what happens on January 6.

The none of the insurrectionists had their due process rights violated. A judge recently found that one of the insurrectionists had their civil rights violated, but it’s absolutely unrelated to due process rights.
*A federal judge on Wednesday held top officials at the Washington, D.C., Department of Corrections in civil contempt, after ruling they violated the civil rights of a U.S. Capitol riot defendant *by impeding his access to medical care.
Always fun when people post links that refute their own arguments.

*Tens of thousands of union members and other Italians gathered in Rome to stand up against rising fascism Saturday, a week after right-wing extremists forced their way into the headquarters of Italy's most powerful labor confederation while protesting a COVID-19 certification requirement for workplaces.*
Look at all of those antifa standing up to right wing racism in those photos. Amazing!

Biden is correct. The Capitol Police did an amazing job against the insurrectionist mob of Trump supporters.
Imagine supporting or defending a guy who encouraged his supporters to interfere in our electoral process. To support a guy like this, you must really hate America and it’s democratic institutions.
None of the insurrectionists have had their due process rights violated because the authorities who have arrested them have gone by the book.
Not releasing evidence to the public SOP when prosecutors are building a case. This means that even if there is footage from inside the building that we haven’t seen, it’s not because of some nefarious plot by Pelosi to get the insurrectionists. Heck, those people got themselves when they went crazy posting photos of themselves committing treason on the liberal social media platforms they hate so much

his economic policies that led to job creation, lowered unemployment and increase home ownership (bought my 1st home when he was President)
he also decreased the deficit and even had a surplus.
Also his immigration policies that prevented illegal immigration and put legal immigrants and US citizens first.
Appreciate the answer.
Too bad he was followed by Bush II who tanked the economy, increased budget deficits and the national debt, and ruined Clinton’s immigration policies.

In Japan, all the people can afford healthcare,
That is not necessarily true.
Anyone with any actual experience dealing with the Japanese healthcare system knows it is affordable for everyone.
> At least many of us that can afford it have some of the best and best choices of doctors and healthcare facilities.
Yes, at least. Too bad we are Americans so don’t go for at least, we go for all. We are also meant to support those weaker/less fortunate than us, but I guess they wasn’t taught in every school or by every parent.

Only now, the narrative is that it is a problem if you vote against this. Was perfectly ok when Biden (and Schumer) did the same.
Who said it was perfectly okay for Biden and Schumer to do this?
You seem to be claiming that it’s not okay for Democrats to voter against raising the debt limit, but it is for “conservatives” to do so. Not surprising.

An unloaded firearm is worthless beyond a blunt object in a self defense situation. Unloaded meaning, obviously, there are know rounds in the firearm. This mean you would have to retrieve both your firearm and the magazine or clip before you can be the good guy with a gun.
Some will argue that carrying a firearm means you are using it. For what? Exercise? Intimidation?
This situation is further evidence that your birthday and a background check (IG from a licensed seller only) shouldn’t be the only qualifications for purchasing or owning a firearm.
By the way, I own multiple firearms. I’ve also undergone extensive training in the safe handling, usage, and storage of firearms. This training was not a requirement to purchase any of my firearms.

Japan is helping to preserve peace in Asia by refusing the US the right to launch military interventions out of Okinawa,
Cite? You typically use facts, but you do have an anti-Japan bent and this assertion doesn’t accord with my understanding.

It’s amazing how many people lack the ability to understand that had this guy had a firearm, he would have done even more damage.
These same people also think firearms have the same range of utility as knives, cars, and acid.

Well, Texas made its decision, so if women as so bent on wanting to get an abortion, just go to a state that allows it, the people in Texas overwhelmingly have spoken.

> None of them will be in over a year, I assume less given the fact that their rights were violated.
You have provided zero evidence of rights being violated. Even if there is evidence, it hasn’t been determined by a court that their rights were violated.
The DOJ can’t even definitively state what the main charge is. Wait until these people lawyer up.
Ypu really should leave the legal analysis to people who know what they are talking about.

Hold everyone involved in this attempted insurrection accountable fo the fullest extent of the law.
Interesting fact: None of the Trump supporting traitors had there due process rights violated. There will be no viable civil lawsuits from these traitors. This is some fantasy that’s floating around the “conservatives” bubble and repeated by the collective.
