    Highly doubt it. Fitchburg is a rural city in the middle of nowhere)only about 40,000 people live there.
    1/3rd of my neighbors in the subdivision where I live work for the State Police (including my wife). They have a barracks in Leominster(the next town over) and that’s less than a 5 minutes drive down the road. Never mind Fitchburg Police always patrolling the area and even then I’ve got much bigger issues to contend with.

    Not to mention I have methods to deal with uninvited guests (what black man doesn’t).;)

    I don't buy into this racism theme any more.
    The folks who rioted strike me as the ones who had nothing better to do just waited for the right moment to have their fun. A stupid, sadistic cop gave them what they wanted.
    Look. I just want peace and order, especially when I am out there running while my family stays home. There is no way I will see setting up fires and endangering innocent lives as something to be condoned.

    To try and compare the riots going on to violence that happens every day in third world #### holes, and to try and use that to justify the violence going on here is pure folly.

    Furthermore, the end doesn't justify the means. We have, or used to have anyway, a law & order justice system here in this country.

    But no more so lets see, back to the wild west days, no trial, he's guilty, we said so, mob rule. We don't need no stinkin trial, just take him out and hang him. We now get "our justice" by rioting and destroying a city. Yeah, that makes perfect sense because "no one listened". People are nuts...

    I believe you have both. You have those that are actually upset and protesting. And then you have those that are taking advantage of it and rioting and burning and looting.

    Just because you don’t buy into it doesn’t mean it isn’t happening. Some people are “subtle” about it(passive-aggressive),others are right out there with it.

    I never said I justified it,I said people are frustrated with what’s been going on and this in part of the MPD’s own doing.

    One white cop who has mental issues kills black man. Happened before. This cop has ben charged with murder. What else do the people want. Lets protest and riot. What would make the people happy. Give the said cop to the demonstrators to unleash violence??? People arent satisfied with anything. I feel that demonstrators are the minority. The media Loves to portray them as the majority for evil purposes and political gain. Us truckers on truckers forum need not worry. WE will be just fine in november. There is absolutely no race war going on. As a matter of fact, tonight i drove up in my dodge charger to convenience store to grab a pack of smokes to enjoy with my vodka. A black fella held the door for me while i was wearing my black bandana with racist looking shaved head and 12 inch long goatee. He said " how you doing tonight brotha". I said im doing wll my friend thanks for asking and have a good night. He said you do the same. Moral of the story, media and politics tries its damnist to create racial tensions for political gain. Some areas of the country arent buying into the nonsense. ITs the inner cities looking for hand outs and still feeling vctim of years of abuse from past their generatin and dont want to get off their ##### and make a name for themself

    Less than three years ago, a perfectly and obviously innocent White woman in Minneapolis was flat-out murdered by a Black cop.

    No riots, no looting, no arson. A few candlelight vigils and actual peaceful protests.

    Make of that what you will.
