Thank you ..

I appreciate your show & hearing both sides without taking sides, but this case is beyond anyone’s ability to be neutral. I am sick of seeing this images!!! Do we have to take guns away from the police?!?!

I also do NOT care if these police gangs are affective if they can’t tell or care about the difference between the good guys and the bad and arrest everyone, and then beat them until they die!!

Why do these people think they are judge and jury when they have a phone call, routed through an operator to tell them there is or was a crime? Why are they arresting someone in a traffic stop? They have no legal right. These people are affective???? They are gangsters!!!

Hitler’s “brown shirts” were affective in keeping crime down. But they were committing crimes, that led to crimes against humanity ending in the death of 6M people. We cannot allow this for one minute, anywhere, no matter how “affective” they are!!!

This has to stop!! What is wrong with us as a society?!!

Love your podcast. But c’mon. Sanna Marin is from Finland

I never miss an episode. You make me so many times the smartest person in the room. But I was a bit upset when you said that Sanna Marin is from Sweden. I hope I didn’t quote you on something wrong before. Makes me wonder…
