This is nice. Really, no joke. He should talk about the officers that lost their lives on Jan. 6, the day of treason for the worst person in the country. I know August is Q anon. Isn't he?

Probably, they are all conspiracy nuts. He never gives any condolences to any of the 1000+ citizens that are killed every year at the hands of cops (not to mention the uncountable number of people that are harassed and assaulted.) The Derek Chauvin verdict is a step in the right direction and shows that protest/riots work, he probably wouldn't have even been charged if it wasn't for the ones last year. These guys died because they chose a job that might require them too, boo hoo, they shouldn't have been harassing a citizen, lesson for the other thugs with badges. At least these people and their family members know what it's like when they lose one of their own now, since this has been happening to us (citizens) for decades, we already know what it's like.
