  3. Herpes Cure
    Indeed doctor uduebor has a cure for Herpes Virus
    I was once victim of the herpes virus with many epidemics on my body, I was cured of the virus thanks to the help of doctor uduebor herbal medicine. I have met most of his patient testimonials on blogs and social media pages, cured of various illnesses. I contacted him with his email address to which he replied and asked me a few questions and the preparation method for which I paid, he sent me herbal medicines and with his prescription I drank herbal medicine for 21 days and the epidemics on my body were healed after concluding herbal medicine, I went for the test and my result was negative with no trace of virus on my blood. You can also be cured, contact him on his official email; ( or via whatsapp +(2349044159370)
    He said he had an herbal remedy for
    diabetes, cancer, fibroid, hyperglycemia, hepatitis,
    HIV, heart disease and liver disease.

  4. It should be a prerequisite for employment in law enforcement that all police officers carry a mandatory 3 million dollar umbrella liability insurance policy.

  5. Yup, law enforcement employment occupancy will raise and we will lose security!! I wonder if she feels the same way when she is being robbed and the cop said before I arrest the thief you need to show proof that you were robbed. The thief said you allowed him/her to break down your front door and come in… Due to no immunity, I can’t take the chance and arrest the thief… sorry but I’ll have to let him go tonight. Call back if he/she come back, ok? …

  6. Shoe is on the other foot now huh.

  7. so what you are saying is you don't want cops to think you just want them to do hmmmm.

  8. And Obama told us to shut up about DEFUNDING….CO is not shutting up and listened to us MARCHING IN THE STREETS IN THE WEST. Let's continue to DEMAND DEFUNDING or we will not be heard.

  9. So Police Officers don’t think they should be held accountable for their actions? Attorney’s have malpractice lawsuits , so do doctors. Executive, CPA’s, Real Estate agents, Construction Manager’s do as well. Every job has accountability, deal with it!

  10. Police Unions are the most violent gangs and mafia groups operating within the US.

  11. All lawsuits should come put of police pensions. I bet they police thrmselves if that happens. And if cops want to leave becausw of this. Good. Those were the corrupt and the killers.

  12. Now that legal thugs will be held accountable, they claim it would be hard to perform their duty. Wow!

  13. The police officers that left, should not have been there in the first place.
    Shoot first then turn on brain……….Yeah OK

  14. Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
    Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
    “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called instructors, for you have one Instructor, the Messiah. The greatest among you will be your servant. For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted".
    Matthew 23 NIV

    You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything, in Heaven above or in the Earth beneath, or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents up to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
    "If my people who are called by my name, humble themselves and pray, AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, I will hear from Heaven, will forgive their sins, and will heal their land."

    And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.

    This, then, is how you should pray:

    Our Father in heaven,
    hallowed be your name,
    your kingdom come,
    your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us today our daily bread.
    And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from the evil one.

    For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.

    "Matthew 5-7 NIV Bible Gateway", we can use google search.
    These are the teachings,
    The Righteousness of our Lord Jesus Christ our God.
    REPENT, and start doing what is right.
    If you abide my teachings, you are really my disciples; then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

    A time is coming and has now come, that the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth. God is Spirit, so his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and Truth; they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.

    In the New Heaven and New Earth,
    only Righteousness dwells.
    May the Spirit of our Lord Jesus Christ our God be with you all.

  15. People need to stop calling 911 on “suspicious” people. Suspicious is not a crime. Did you see a crime? If not don’t call 911. Cops love to shoot people, don’t give them a reason. The original caller was concerned about a suspicious person then the bigger crime ended up being murder/negligent death. All because someone saw a black kid walking in the dark. This is what happens.

  16. These cops are corrupt and racist used to murder black people.

  17. Who says auditing doesn't work? And for the thousands of thugs hiding in the police force feeding the need to be a bully America is WATCHING YOU. 🎶Bad Cops Bad Cops
    Whatcha gonna do when they come for you? 🎶 😆😆😆😆. You abused your qualified immunity. YOU brought on the change

  18. changes for improvements
    Let us formulate the following common political goal:
    "Internally, bosses must also become responsible to the grassroots, especially in groups with delegated powers (police, parties, governments, courts, media, banks, infrastructure, health system … even church and military). We know the good, the bad and the ugly people in the direct (professional) environment best. In order to support socially committed people and degrade charlatans, we need TRIPLE ASSESSMENTS by superiors, colleagues and subordinates that are effective for promotion up and down – regularly!"

  19. [Dec 19, 2020] \\ Einstein's Special and General Relativity are not only the base of physics, astrophysics, cosmology, philosophy of modern science and atomic reactors/nuclear engineering today, his greatest is GRAVITY PHYSICS [GENERAL RELATIVITY] //// ALL PROVEN TOO MUCH TO THOSE WHO ENVY HIM AND IN VAIN WORK TO TARNISH HIS SCIENCE AND PEOPLE – LIKE BURNING HIS PUBLICATIONS AND BOOKS BY HITLER-NAZI-GERMANY. <> TODAY, THAT ENVY IS SPREAD BY ''EINSTEIN IS WRONG'' <> and flooding the media with anti-Einstein, no-show, no-science, dark-energy/dark-matter, that ignores post-Einstein publications like this one, that exposes their hoax, starting with a few pages that make readers smile before trying to understand the hardest of all <> "General Relativistic ASTRO-THERMO" <> that has won NYAS Gold Medal and worldwide cited acclaims…

  20. 49 more states to go. It might happen within a century or two.

  21. ALL states need to get rid of qualified immunity.

  22. trump violated the US constitution and was against American law and was against the 14th Amendment of the United States :

    The 14th Amendment forbids reactionaries from participating in rebellions to overthrow the regime or to rebel into parliament. He called trump the fascist dictator.

    corruption and tax evasion.

    His lawyers, Cyrus Vance, said that the public accusations of President trump's misconduct "piled up like a mountain."

    Trump and his businesses. trump on charges of tax fraud and tax evasion for more than 10 years.

    Trump spread covid to many people in the white house and Trump killed many Americans.

    Perhaps the sentence Trump is first is more suitable (than the sentence 

    of America first with devil trump)

    Trump is taking care of Christmas. And the people take care of their own lives.

    The evil king (devil trump).

    trump caused infection: 17.452.167 cases

    Trump kills Americans: 315.769 death

  23. This is just another fake news propaganda story! A grainy police body cam that shows nothing, a description of a banned choke hold with no video evidence, then the whole narrative insinuating the cops were responsible for the death of the boy, when in fact, it was the irresponsible and illegal decision to administer Ketamine, a horse tranquilizer, to this kid! THAT’S WHAT CAUSED HIS ALLEGED DEATH! You can’t inject someone with a drug that you have no idea if the person is allergic to, or if they could have some kind of drug in their system that could have adverse effects on them! This is 100% the fault of the paramedics!

  24. this life is temporary and the very good news is that we have salvation believing in Jesuchrist

    read Romans 10: 9 and 10 believe by faith in your heart and call on his name only he saves

    read st john 14 : 6 and st jhon 3 : 15 to 18 🍂🌸🌿🙏

  25. Google what is the average IQ of a cop. You will be shocked at first, then you will be disgusted, then you will be outraged, then it will all make sense.

  26. Any person with a gun, need to have some hesitation

  27. Rememeber when we were horrified about watching russia give ketamine to a woman in histarics about the government killikg her husband? Now its routine treatment in usa….

  28. This is great news even though its way overdue . This will erase Bad cops and bring in GOOD cops to make the community safer

  29. Demonrat cities are going to be worse than before now.
    Crimes are spiking.
    Keep it up libidiots…Trump 4 more years and more red waves.

  30. Qualified Immunity? Is the American police the only country that has it? Ive never heard of the term in Australia or England.

  31. Love it! Still sick about Elijah McClain.

  32. You don't sue evil people.
    You burn them alive we're they sleep.

  33. One state down, 49 more to go. Way to go Colorado. If an officer is doing their job in a professional manner with forethought, intelligence and proper training, they shouldn't have to be second guessing or hesitating when they have to pull the trigger. It's the inherit risk of the job. If one doesn't believe they should be held accountable when they make a mistake, then don't take the job. If the leadership is worried whether their officers are going to hesitate to pull the trigger because they are no longer immune to scrutiny or accountability, then that hesitation itself is an indication that maybe they shouldn't. Instead of spending police budget dollars on military grade assault vehicles, maybe they should invest in more training hours instead. Confidence is born of knowledge and proper training.
