Hey 2016 Presidential Candidates…How Will You Protect Innocent Citizens?

It seems these days that the news and media jump from one police incident to another and activist jump at each opportunity to incite protests. There is public outcry about how police are brutally murdering innocent” citizens.

While I don’t know enough about the individual cases to make informed comments, it seems like there is at least one common denominator in all of these incidents and that is the simple truth that these guys are criminals.

Before you go off the deep end, let me be perfectly clear that I am in no way, shape, or form defending or promoting the actions of the officers involved in these killings. I think they overreacted and made very poor decisions. I am simply pointing out the fact that the victims in these incidents did indeed commit criminal acts that caused an interaction with police, so we shouldn’t be making them out to be martyrs.

It amazes me that we have thousands of people protesting, rioting, looting, and injuring officers in the name of “justice” for victims that were known criminals. But no one is standing up to protect the truly innocent business owners that are having their livelihoods taken away from them by mindless thugs.

These businesses are being looted and destroyed.

Who is protecting the innocent, hard-working business owners?

Every election we hear about how the small-business owners are the backbone of our economy. Well it’s time to put up or shut up.

I want to know from the candidates in the upcoming presidential election how they are going to protect these hard-working, tax-paying Americans from having their business destroyed by scumbags looking for a reason to loot and cause trouble.

These rioters and looters need to be handled with swift and direct justice, even if that means the use of force.

We can’t let these ignorant thugs tear our country apart because the police force is under public scrutiny and afraid to ruffle feathers by dealing with this.

The National Guard needs to be on the front lines protecting the innocent people of our nation. If not, these riots will get worse each and every time.

Let’s stop worrying about social backlash and the next election and do what our government is supposed to do, lead and protect its people.

Stop tolerating ignorance when it affects the lives and livelihoods of innocent taxpayers.

Show us you’re a leader. Show us you can handle managing this nation.
