    Well, he's in "the stance" with his finger very near the trigger. Sure looks like he's an inch from engagement.

    Looking like that, I'm surprised numerous people didn't immediately fear for their lives and deal with it right then and there.

    Not much context with that still photo, but it doesn't look very smart, on the face of it. Masked-up, largely unidentifiable, and in what looks to be an "about to engage" stance. Can't end well, doing that that way.


    I'm all for being armed. Even well-armed. Even at some gatherings and rallies. But there's no way in hell I'm going to be at what's likely to turn out to be rioting gatherings, when my mere "armed" presence could get misconstrued badly, or when assumptions about my "look" and demeanor could be heaped together in a truck and dumped right on my head, legally speaking, irrespective of my actual intent.

    But, hey, if folks want to be perceived this way, that's on them. One of the many potential ramifications with being in such a "preparatory" "engagement" stance as that, with dozens of others around.

    The cops will have to come to my home, my place of employment or maybe the deer woods to knock me down. I will not be going looking for the cops dressed in riot gear.

    Sent From a retired LV Metro officer

    Subject: Las Vegas situation.

    This was last night*** 6/1/2020 (it’s as if we’re in a second civil war)

    IMPORTANT INFORMATION! From a resident near Downtown Summerlin that actually dealt with what was going on last night.

    Alan Altman

    Ok I was not going to post this as I’m sick of the lies on social media but all of you need to hear what happened here last night.
    At about 4pm we started getting notices that our outside shopping distract Downtown Summerlin was suddenly closed and evacuated.
    About an hour later we saw online postings shared through the community that said the hell with downtown Las Vegas let’s go to downtown Summerlin and loot and let’s go to the local neighborhoods and destroy them.
    About 400 heavily armed police showed up and blocked the Downtown Summerlin district and started covering the surrounding streets where we live.
    We saw postings online that specifically called out our neighborhoods for attack.
    Residents were terrified we all have seen what’s happening on TV etc. as a neighborhood we took action.
    We organized and set up a watch on the Main Street from downtown into our three neighborhoods.
    Yes we were armed and heavily armed but we kept the weapons in our cars.
    A police officer came by and asked if we were locals. We said yes, she asked if we were protecting the neighborhood we said yes. She asked if we were armed we said yes heavily and she asked open carry and we said yes.
    She then proceeded to tell what to do. She said we were targets of the antifa they were going to try and enter the neighborhood and burn as many cars as possible and damage and loot as many homes as they could. She asked us to tell everyone get cars off the streets and take in anything that could be used as a weapon against a home like potted plants in planters etc.
    She told they had found huge piles of bricks all around downtown and our neighborhood as well as they arrested someone setting up a food and water camp in the desert nearby.
    She said the road was heavily covered by the sheriffs department but if we saw a mob coming to us that meant something bad happened and do not let them into the neighborhood. She was serious. She also said they may try to flank us and come around the back way so keep our eyes open.
    As we waited and watched we noticed the typical antifa punks in their black outfits and helmets. One kept driving by in a car another was on a skateboard and another on a bike. We had another walking they were waking through the neighborhoods and we had lookouts in all three. 704 homes banded together to protect our families and property.
    We finally decided after bike boy and walking guy made five passes to show them what we got. At that point we took out our weapons and held them down or strapped them to our shoulders.
    We got their attention that’s for sure. Within a few minutes they disappeared. At this point I got notice that one of these peaceful protesters was filling up 8 pallets of glass bottles at the chevron station with gas up the street. People realized he was making a lot of Molotov cocktails and confronted him and he took off.
    Soon after our show of force the protesters went to a Main Street and got picked up and left except a few who went to nearby neighborhood and attempted some home break ins and were caught.
    So when I see idiots on social media saying that these are peaceful protestors and it’s the President staging this stuff etc I say how dare you.
    Your ignorant stupid blind hatred is disgusting. Never in my life did I think I would have to take up arms to defend my home and my family.
    These were not right wing militias or any of them other crap you always blame these were hard core anti America socialists intent on causing as much damage as possible.
    This is not TV or social media I was there and I am
    Angry and getting angrier by the day. This has nothing to do with the BLM movement. The majority of what we saw was 20 something white spoiled punks with CA plates on their cars.
    How dare you socialist antifa piece of ****s attempt to come into my neighborhood and threaten extreme violence. I can tell you if they had gotten in and started destroying things not one would have made it out. We had about 20 other homeowners who wanted to be with us but I feared accidental violence and said if we need you we will call.
    We did not go looking for antifa we did it move from the entrance to our neighborhoods. We stood there ready to protect our families friends and homes.
    Every one of these antifa we saw all dressed the same and all had backpacks and we knew they had bricks in those backpacks. In a split second one of us could have been hit with one of those bricks and it would kill you. The only reason it did not happen is they knew they would be shot.
    I am disgusted by those on social media saying these are peaceful protestors being harassed by the police. Grow the **** up and stop the BS. One Molotov cocktail would take out multiple homes in Vegas in the heat this place is a tinder box.
    Our neighborhood is on the far west side of town a mile from open desert we have nothing to do with anything going on. All of the postings online were kill the rich let’s burn their homes.
    So before another one of you defends these rioters why don’t you walk out into the violence for yourself. My wife was terrified she wanted to take our dogs and leave. How dare you left wing *******s threaten to destroy and kill us.
    I am beyond disgusted with what I am seeing posted. Go watch your CNN and MSNBC and live in your fairy land world but last night was terrifying. Thinking that we could really come
    Under a violent attack and I may have to use a weapon to defend myself and my family. What the hell is wrong with you people. These are not protestors this is not non violent.
    Share this with anyone people need to know the truth of who and what these people are. This is antifa we have their postings we saw it for ourselves they were coming for us and we would have shot every last one of them to protect our families. We got lucky but it will happen in some city soon people will fight back.
    I’m pissed it’s obvious and it’s idiots out there calling these people peaceful and blaming the government and police grow up.

    Exactly and it is what the left is fully prepared for. Any incident to fan hatred suits them. The Propaganda Media has been hammering Trump full time and they are not going to let any opportunity get away.

    Living on a road system means any Antifa can drive from 100- 150 miles away, drive right into your area.

    Scarey when you think about it says the Alaskan that dont live on a highway system.

    Antifa has been around for a while.
    They usually hang out in cities and mix w protesters.

    Whats keeping these terrorists from figuring out they dont need a protest to pull their operations, instead take it on the road.
    Convoy out to some random community late at night and flash mob the town?

    Antifa is a rabid dog organization that needs addressed by law enforcement.

    Since the people standing around are mixed minorities, Im thinking they were BLM protesters and bystanders one their own brought a AR to shoot Red Hats.
    Instead one the protesters works around behind AR guy and grabs the guy from behind.
    Then the dog pile begins.

    I was most disappointed that officer Chauvin was unsuccessfully prevented from committing suicide by one of his fellow officers prior to his arraignment.

    Trump didn't invent that phrase.
    It was a comment made back in 1967 during the Miami riots by the police chief of Miami.
    It was his policy to stop rioters by force. Stopping felons is the responsibility of law enforcement. Take the racial aspect out of it and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that sentiment.
    But the left can't keep racism out of anything. It is their ace in the hole card they pull when nothing else sticks.
    Regardless of what happens regarding these looting and burnings, the Covid 19 pandemic or the economy, the left will blame everything on Trump and take credit for anything positive. And the lemmings will believe it as long as the handouts keep coming.

    Press is all over the guy that jumped the BLM gunman from behind turns out he was just a bystander watching the protesters.

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.th...d-protest-to-off-racists-and-maga-people/amp/

    (Although Texas is an open-carry state, the Texas Penal Code makes it illegal to display a firearm in a public place “in a manner calculated to alarm.”)”

    Mr. Quinones allegedly refused a Lubbock Police officer’s verbal commands to drop the rifle, and only did so when the officer drew his gun. The DOJ report says a man nearby then tackled Mr. Quinones. The report states at this time, Quinones allegedly shouted, “this is a revolution” and “President Trump must die” as he was taken into custody.

    Editor’s note: The original Department of Justice report listed the man who tackled Quinones as a protester, we later received information that the man may not have been attending the event as part of the protest. This information has not yet been confirmed.

    Just like the caravans of illegals were funded by progressive / anti-American sources, these protests are filled with paid activists, Antifa members and groups who want to fundamentally change the substance of the United States. This movement has always been around, but it obtained new strength from the Kenyan / Muslim token president Obama.
    He promised to change the United States. He pushed his socialist programs, strengthen fringe groups like BLM and began the war on law enforcement with his constant race baiting rhetoric. The left has no substance, they just follow the direction that promises the largest payout for the least amount of work. The progressives want to curb crime by making everything legal, shrinking the police force and eliminating all history that doesn't fit the progressive agenda. They constantly bloviate about the disproportionate arrests of people of color while ignoring the fact that those arrests are a direct result of crimes committee, not the color of skin. This message is pushed everyday by the liberal media. Now we have people apologizing for defending the flag and the anthem. This is not how America is supposed to be. This is what happens when you excuse behavior because someone gets offended, because of race, upbringing, education etc. Now the left wants to release prisoners because suddenly they are the victims.
    Wrong is wrong....no matter how or why it happens.
    The democrats are trying to get a feeble man elected. That is exactly what the DNC wants.
    Someone who can't have an original, rational thought and can be the puppet of the George Soros's of the progressives.

    We are one president away from becoming a socialist country.

    One president away?? We have been going down that road at breakneck speed for 20 yrs. Under both parties and we still are under this one.
