“Punish” “prosecute” “go to jail”

Interesting how three crimes identified in the circles have three different consequences that get more specific and severe as the chart goes away from fascists and more toward antifa.

“Punish” the murderers, perhaps by suspending them without pay for a day?

Punishment and prosecution of guilty usually include jail sir despite your consideration of a punishment that doesn't include it

The guy who shot and killed the Trump supporter in Portland had been arrested for bringing a gun to an earlier riot, and was not prosecuted because the DA was not prosecuting people arrested in those riots

Support for BLM is falling off probably because of the violence

Many of the protests have been peaceful, however some have descended into violence, clashes with law enforcement and looting. President Trump has repeatedly portrayed the unrest as a product of local Democratic leadership and has claimed that it will only worsen under a Biden administration.

But in the survey, respondents said they trust Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to handle public safety better than Trump.
Support has fallen off probably due to Trump's incessant propaganda against BLM.

That and the slogan is dumb, "Defund the Police."
Without an explanation it's take away money and get rid of the police.
The reaction is WTF, we need police more than ever.
They'll win no hearts and minds unless they come up with something that can be read quickly and is clear.
Maybe "Kill Whitey".

Just like every community I've ever known, the black community I served in north Philly was divided on cops by age. Older people liked them and wanted them around.

Exactly, they'll never get broad support to get rid of the popo.
Better to say, "Police the Police".

Made me think, if I saw one would I buy it for the novelty or leave it for others to see. I'm not sure.
