What am I getting wrong here?

Trump had a round table where he praised the police department of Kenosha.

This is a police department that an officer start civil unrest by shooting a guy 7 times in the back.

This is the same police department that allowed a 17 year old minor, too young to be legally carrying an AR rifle, to walk around during a protest.

This same police department had every reason to enforce the curfew with this kid, but never did. Instead, the police gave water and encouragement to the kid.

Because this police department didn't take steps to keep this kid from walking around with a gun, more people eventually got shot.

This police department screwed up and then kept screwing up, yet they are being honored with a visit from the president.

If Trump was really trying to protect people and prevent riots he should be talking about police reform and pointing out the mistakes this police department made that added to the problem. This is one crazy world.

1. Not a bug, it's a feature

It has no intention of or capability for resolving conflict.

2. You summed it up exactly right.

This trip to Kenosha does nothing to address any problems there, it just lets Donnie fist bump a corrupt police dept. and make it look like he’s “concerned.”

4. I see the mistake in your post.

"If Trump was really trying to protect people"

If Trump was really trying to protect white people

9. Not to pile on, but there's a second mistake:

yet they are being honored with a visit from the president.

Maybe some of the filthier among them may see that as an honor.

5. Don't be so hard on them

It's just like they missed a 3-foot putt.

6. That was almost the theme of the thing

I know you're using sarcasm, but it was a bit of brushed off pity party. At one point they were complaining about the police having to endure awful language. I kid you not!

There was no mention of Blake until the reporters asked questions. It was sick and un American.

7. Its all about making the dems be the party

That doesn't support the police. Joe saw that and has been on top of it.

8. Who would want to support those incompetent

and deadly cops?

The media should ask every police chief in the US if they support grabbing a person and shooting him 7 times the back. I want to see their on camera replies.

11. Of course I am talking about ALL cops

Not the bad ones. The republicans wants to make us the party that hates all of them.
