    On the fifth night of rioting, looting and arson in Minneapolis, the criminal elements were driven from the streets. By whom? By the same cops who had been the constant objects of media derision and mob hatred. Without the thin blue line, far larger sectors of dozens of America's cities would be in ruins, burned to the ground by the mobs that showered police and their vehicles with rocks, bricks, bottles, Molotov cocktails and any debris that could be thrown at them. Because they were the first responders in these riots, the cops were the first targets of criminal assault...

    Four St. Louis police officers are “conscious and breathing” following shootings in St. Louis during a riot. Another officer in Las Vegas is in critical condition on life support after getting shot in the head outside of a casino. The officers are the most recent examples of officers at risk during the riots across America.It doesn’t help public safety when mayors, politicians, and protesters are referring to the police as “murderers” and “terrorists.”Fox News: In St. Louis, Mo., Monday night, four police officers were shot during protests in the city’s downtown area, two in the leg, one in the foot...

Weve been asked for obvious reasons to not report which agencies they are. Heres what were told. In a number of different communities in states ranging from California and Texas to Florida reports have...

    On Friday night in the Fort Greene section of Brooklyn, protesters descended on an unoccupied New York Police Department van, which quickly became the target of all their anger and angst. After chasing officers away, people threw rocks, glass bottles, and anything and everything at the van, according to one protester, who would only identify himself as Mike. After failing to turn over the vehicle, protesters set it on fire by burning their signs inside it, he said. Soon, images and videos of the vehicle, with windows broken and engulfed in red flames, spread across social media during the first...

    But what if I dont believe that, as a general rule, cops are racists and white people are bad? What if I believe that the cops are the good guys and that white people arent the bad guys? Is there room in progressive America for me? Are those opinions still expressible in a nation that once practiced free speech? Maybe not. Especially now in crisis-of-the-week America, as the Democrats foment and exploit crises in ever more desperate attempts to claim power in November. They did global warming for a while, and that didnt work. They did impeachment for a while,...

    Joe Biden on Monday suggested that police forces could train officers to shoot attackers in the legs in order to reduce potential fatalities. There is the idea that instead of standing there and teaching a cop when theres an unarmed person, coming at him with a knife or something, to shoot him in the leg instead of in the heart, Biden said. Theres a lot of different things [policies] that can change.

    Watching the Minneapolis Police Department abandon its precinct to the torch and crowbar-wielding peaceful protesters in that Democrat-run state and city, my first thought was that I should disarm. After all, I have been reliably informed by our smart and competent elite betters that I dont need firearms because the police will protect me, and I am sure that even though they cant defend their own police station they will absolutely defend me, my family, and our pet unicorn Chet. Confusingly, I have also been reliably informed that the police are evil monsters of racism and badness and that they...
