56% of registered voters believe police behaving appropriately or not aggressively enough

Only 34% believe police too aggressive.

Must have done the poll at a clan rally. But, I think the number is low.

I am surprised that this poll got published. Doesn't fit the narrative.

Why the idiot Republicans dont speak out against the democrat inspired violence is a mystery.

Actual peaceful protests should not only be encouraged but protected with all resources available. They are part of the backbone of a free society.

Violent rioting should be suppressed with as much force as is available to do so without causing collateral damage. Violent rioting is *not* part of a free society. Looters and rioters should be rendered dead if they do not surrender immediately.

Too many old Republicans in leadership that are afraid the NY Times and LA Times and nightly news will say mean things about them.

but but but big media has told me they were peaceful protestors and that corona virus wasn’t a concern while protesting and that trump is bad and that whites are privileged

Obviously the word has gone out to the infested lib media to stop advocating for violence by the mobs. The focus groups so loved by the Left must be killing them.

If only it were possible to be opposed to both looting and policy brutality. But it just can’t be done, you can only be on one side.

Either looting is great, or the police can do whatever they want to whenever they feel like it. Those are your only two choices.

There is a question in the poll, worded:

“How much confidence do you have in police officers in your community to treat black people and white people
equally: A great deal of confidence, a fair amount, just some, or very little confidence?”

Republicans say great or fair, 89%. Democrats 42% . independents 65%.

Some will say this is a republican/democrat divide, and some will say republicans are blind to race.

But the question was about “local community”. I bet most people in republican communities are happy with their police, because their police probably behave much better than police in largely democratic communities. That could be why the wide disparity exists.

More like 1968 actually

I’ll give the kids of 1968 or a little more leeway though they had the following to deal with

The Vietnam war

The assassination of Martin Luther King

The assassination of Bobby Kennedy

Those kids and 68 we’re also dealing with the emergence of lysergic acid diethylamide the 25th isomer LSD

But just knowing that your brothers and sisters were overseas dying in a jungle for no reason at all and then you could be drafted into that hellacious conflict was really a good enough reason for me to understand their angst and protesting in the streets

Kids these days are simply spoiled brats

Three Times As Many Americans Say Police Used Too Little Force to Stop Rioters, Versus Too Much Force

I suspect blacks and whites agreed in pretty much equal numbers.

We need to get our head out of our ass on this.. we are all being rolled and played on this both black and white.. im telling you NO majority black or white back this violence

And its just and much white left causing the violence..they are just using the black left and useful idiots for this

Pay attention there a lot of black that get what going on

The fight is not black white.. its left right...

and really the working class, middle class Americans vs Elitist, smug lefties and punk ass college kid

This is a more a class fight and not a race fight...the ruling class country club class want it to be a race war down the bottome to distract what’s going on the top

This is deep state crap and you know it the timing is everything.. And there’s a hell of a lot of blacks that know exactly what’s going on and khow wre are being play by someone pushing everybody buttons

Whites get called racist and blacks get called Tom if you dont tow the party line the media is feeding us all and we’re both being shouted down
