  1. POLICE (People Traitors!) have NO LAWFUL DUTY to PROTECT our "CHILDREN" or "HUMAN LIFE": (Police are Income heroes for huge "State Profit"!)
    The U.S. Supreme Court has stated again in (Castlerock vs Gonzales): Police heroically serve and protect the chartered "States for Profit" not the honorable taxpayers!

  4. Archer Western a massive company based in the sanctuary cities of Chicago and Atlanta. Of course they probably didn't E-verify anything and probably have the ok of the Biden admin. The families of loved ones killed or murdered by undocumented immigrants should be able to sue Joe Biden and the federal government for not securing the border. The same goes for the families of those killed from the illegal drugs that are flowing into the country while Joe Biden and the Democrats throw parties at the White House. They are out of touch with the perils of everyday Americans.

  5. Construction work is far more deadly than policing.

  6. If only these costumes welfare recipients put as much effort into looking into the victims police execute.

  7. Cops have a bad habit of standing in the middle of the road. It’s a low IQ thing.

  20. Yet Ron Desantis does nothing about employers in Florida "hiring" illegals…just sad
