I think the guys on Jan 6th were idiots. On the same level with antifa and BLM. It really comes down to whether or not the officers (no matter what agency) are actually acting on that oath. Saying it only constitutes so much. Standing by and doing nothing cause you are instructed to is wrong. The minute a cop stops enforcing the constitution and becomes more concerned with his/her salary and starts violating rights and enforcing unconstitutional laws we have an issue. You have to judge people individually. Not as a group or agency. LEO and military have to choose their master. The people or the government. If you select government take that flag off your shoulder cause you don’t rate to wear it.Do blue lives really matter to people here? If you're against this maniac who killed an officer and injured another (I am), then you should be against the people on January 6th who killed an officer and injured 120 other officers (I am).
Capitol Police, local police, Oregon State Police, County Sheriffs, military police, FBI, border patrol...they are all blue lives. They are all police. Some people here seem to think their own rural county Sheriffs are great, while OSP are the Governor's thugs, the FBI is corrupt, but border patrol is a-ok...and I just shake my head because the individuals in each agency took an oath and they are all good police who uphold the law and don't change their opinion based on politics.
