When their reality is pushed to the ground all of sudden things aren’t right. This happens to everyday people daily and incidents like this are life changing or ending. Need more politicians to walk the streets and get their reality checked.

You should have told him that, Barb. He probably just didn't know.

You were ok with beating up the owner and burning down his business. What changed? https://t.co/​ZgwG8JF1ob

“You can’t just expect to illegally violate the US border & have taxpayers support you”

“You can’t expect to just take $ people work for and give it to others”

And about 1,000 more expressions of outrage from citizens

She’s a victim of the policies she and her party created.

You can't just defund the police and expect there to be enough of them to save your ass. That's just not the way it works.

They’re criminals whom you empowered with democrat policy, they don’t have morals and a personal sense of right and wrong.

When you set it up so they can, they will. This is what Democrats’ policies have done.

She helped create the environment where this is possible.

She and all like her are to blame.

Some folks in Glenview nearly robbed @ gunpoint & this assault get predictable reaction. Where's the march down Broadway about violent crime that happens daily. Folks won't even show up for a Lake Merritt peace rally. Just trifling.
