This. Justice is supposed to be blind, and most importantly here, is that the police are not the judge. They have a tough job, and a lot of responsibility. We always talk about people need to be held accountable for their actions. For some though, law enforcement is exempt from this accountability. Yeah, obey the law. But there are just too many cases in the USA where cop plays executioner, and there's no justice. No one person, regardless of their profession should be above the law.Dave's a mess wrote: ↑Thu Aug 27, 2020 3:01 pmNo, I think the protest centers around the belief that one of the rules in society should be don't shoot people in the back as they slowly walk away from you if you can avoid it.NHLTIM wrote: ↑Thu Aug 27, 2020 2:56 pmSo let people do what they want to do...no rules in society whatsoever. If the cop yells stop....just ignore it and get in your car and do you. Got it....Dave's a mess wrote: ↑Thu Aug 27, 2020 2:45 pm
I think that's the point. The players want you to care, because they do. If this were a one off incident there wouldn't be protests anywhere, but it's far from an isolated incident.
Now to your original point, it's entirely possible that the League and PA are pandering. They have egg on their face for being the only League to not sit out in some capacity last night. It's also entirely possible they're not and they wanted to draw attention to what they feel is a societal problem.
The guy is a criminal and the NHL is in support of him and nobody even questions it. It’s mind boggling.
