Rand Paul thanks police after videos show crowd surrounding him near White House

Republican Sen. Rand Paul was surrounded by a large crowd of protesters in Washington, DC, overnight Thursday following the Republican National Convention, and had to be escorted away from the event by police, according to video taken by The Washington Post.

Omigod! How large was it? Did he wander into a bad neighborhood?
"Just got attacked by an angry mob of over 100, one block away from the White House. Thank you to (the Washington, DC, police) for literally saving our lives from a crazed mob," Paul tweeted, referring to both himself and his wife, Kelley.

Oh no! Did this enormous mob overrun the police?? Were they high on meth? Did they have guns and knives? Did you have to run for your lives?
In video taken by The Post, which was present where the incident took place in downtown Washington, police can be seen attempting to use their bicycles as barriers to escort Rand and Kelley Paul away from the White House after leaving the final night of the convention. Footage of the incident doesn't appear to show the two Kentuckians being physically attacked by the crowd.
Whew! A narrow escape! That’s just...

...wait a minute.

(Rereads story.)

Fucking drama queen. 🙄

Oh, this is just ridiculous.
Trump also said he was considering bestowing "some kind of medal" on the police officers who came to the defense of Senator Rand Paul, who was surrounded by demonstrators following Thursday's keynote address at the Republican National Convention.

A medal??

Are we ignoring that his bill was introduced at a time when another was proposed as well. The dem version wasn't just ending no knock warrants, limit qualified immunity, and also chokeholds. Were they just supposed to abandon that because Paul randomly wandered over the dem side of things on ONE thing, while he was still opposing the anti lynching bill?

It isn't that liberals ignored Paul ( which many rightfully do ), they just had their bills going on.

What is stopping governors from changing the laws in their cities.

Well, legislatures change laws... but governors do sign them so let’s call that a wash. The only thing slowing them down? Police unions. Across the country, many places are fixing this on their own... but I think it should be a nationwide ban.




There are too many to post them all.

The same thing that stops any of our politicians and leaders from doing anything: fear of how their voters will vote.

Being labeled soft on crime is a death sentence during a campaign.
Being “tuff” on crime is why we are were we are

I'd argue it's not being "tuff" on crime equally, is why we are here.

When normally someone is suspected of passing a counterfeit $20, there's an assumption they probably don't even know they are doing it, so an investigation is done to find out where it may have come from. Until May 25th of this year, that hadn't usually ended in the death of many, but it did for a Black man while an officer was being "tuff" and indifferent to a human life.
