    Default Riot Control

    When did the fire departments in the US become riot control agents, I thought we were there to protect and serve the public, not some company that some peaceful demonstrators were picketing, I guess the Beatles were right with the "welcome to the US sr". But its more like Germany prior to their losing a war. To see what I mean, go to the following website, and see if you would have to support that bull """"

    I see a fire truck parked on the side of the road. Where do you see the fire department doing riot control. Hell, where do you see a riot? Stop trying instigate and go crawl back under a rock somewhere.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    Well, since that link is from Mike Rovero's website, and Mike Rovero believes the "terrorists" are actors hired by the U.S. Government as part of a vast right wing conspiracy, and I assume this is Mike or one of his minions, I'm left to really not putting much credibility in their interpretation of a photo...or anything else they say.

    Seeing that this mope hasn't replied to his own thread yet, I'm guessing he too has gone back to the USS... Back to the USS.. Back to the USSR.


    Sorry, that was lame but i couldn't resist.

    If this was indeed a riot, the FD may be there to render medical aid.

    This may have been a Prison Fire Truck! Some prisons have older trucks that they use. Also I believe it is being used for medical aid also!

    Last time I remember seeing firehoses used to supress a riot in this country was from news clips I've seen during the Kennedy Administration where firehoses,dogs and State Troopers were used to disuade citizens from voting,attending schools and other nefarious activities simply because of their skin color.
    That's the reason I won't vote Democrat.

    You gotta be kidding me. If that is your reason for not voting for democrats it is a pretty lame one. The firehoses were being turned on individuals promoting liberal causes such as the ones you mentioned.

    I can assure you people like Sheriff Bull Connor and his ilk were not considered bleeding hearts.

    If you're going to have an opinion, at least make a feeble attempt to have it be an informed opinion.

    With that remark you just look foolish.

    There is nothing liberal about wanting to vote,go to a good school or use any dang water fountain that is available.It's called being treated as a human being.
    And what political party was the "good"Sheriff?Or maybe the President that sat in his rocking chair and said"There is nothing I can do as President...."
    Not trying to hijack the thread,but which major party has a current member who is a former Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan?
    Now,why should I vote for a party like that?

    Maybe, but he's not the ranking member of the appropriations committee.

    I'll second that! Seems like they are accomplishing what they set out to do. Stir the pot and get firefighters arguing about politics. Why don't we give this CHOOL the royal F.U. and not do it in this thread.

    I was talking about the senior US Senator from West Virginia,Cap.Robert Byrd was a Klansman and was the state's Grand Wizard in earlier years.Never heard him apologize for it nor has the Democratic Party called him on it,either.

    And Byrd has repeatedly stated he is embarassed about that aspect of his life. Yet conservatives don't seem to hear those statements while they preach about forgiveness they're not capable of applying it to those from a political party other than that which they belong.

    Meanwhile, as was pointed David Duke has all those affiliations, and to the best of my knowledge he still embraces that philosophy.

    I am rather firmly grounded in reality.
