Of course it wasn't a riot. If it was a riot this guy and his cadre of rent-a-cops would have been out there actually cracking a few skulls. Police need to start saying to hell with politicians. I took an oath to uphold law and order and protect the constitution and I'm going to do it. If they all do it, they can't dismiss the entire department without cutting off their own nose in the process. Power in numbers. Stand up for what's right!
