As Mizzou learned the hard way, campus protests can be very bad for the institution of higher learning. Police and even the National Guard should be used to restore order and make it safe for minorities (e.g., Jewish students) to attend class. The left has taken over higher ed, you see results. FJB

Harry, your reply to me is true, and accurate, but a peaceful protest is legal.

Start holding the alumni accountable who use the state taxpayer dollars in the form of their state government salaries to donate and buy tickets to athletic programs of these universities. Revoke their degrees, and find someway of filing criminal charges against them even if you have to make it up.

Because what we are seeing is the results of our educational facilities being run, and taught by Socialist groups!! Anti-American special interests have changed our educational format!! Changing minds, and history in our systems. TARGETING the youth of today!! Even our Senators and Represenatives!!

They need to revoke the degrees of each and every UM Columbia grad who has an engineering degree starting with the walking dictionary we have in my hometown who times stoplights. That computer geek can do nothing but quote a bunch of state regulations and policy that nobody understands.

No, not if they are peaceful, otherwise the answer is yes.

When was the last time you saw a peaceful leftist protest? "We need some muscle over here" ring any bells?

Do you think the shooting of a dog by a Sturgeon police officer was justified?

Watched video. Little dog was no threat to anyone. After being outsmarted by deaf and blind in one eye dog the cop should have called for help instead of shooting it. This mistake makes the whole police department look bad in eyes of public. PD should buy a new dog for owner. Mayor apologize. FJB

This dog is not big enough to pose a serious threat.

The dog didn't show any signs of being aggressive or sick. The cop was obviously trigger happy.

This Cop should be fired. The poor animal wasn't a danger at all. I know a lot of cops that would agree with me.

Nope , I think the police department and mayor should be under investigations. How would he feel if his family dog was shot a stupid reason ? Oh I didn't know he was blind ? Really ok well what about a dog that's def gonna shoot it to cause it's acting weird? You need to be smarter then what you are

This officer, along with the Mayor, should be terminated. This poor dog was murdered. If he thought the dog was sick, he could have taken him for help. There was absolutely no excuse for shooting this tiny dog. The cop admits he wasn't afraid of being harmed. He got tired of chasing the poor thing,

I believe the video from the policeman's body camera is enough for a conviction.

Yeah, that's a bad shoot. No way it's okay. Fire him. Remember, the police only exist to serve and protect the law, not individual citizens. The supreme Court ruled police have no duty to protect non government officials.
