Florida Sheriff Educates The MSM On What Peaceful Protesting Looks Like
The MSM constantly] tries to demonize the police, making it seem like they are being overly aggressive when it comes to peaceful protests. The fact of the matter is that many protests that start off as peaceful, have quickly turned into riots. But the MSM is not interested in telling the whole story, that doesn't fit their anti-police narrative. Florida's Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd was sick of it, so he enlarged some photos in order to inform the media of the obvious difference between a legal peaceful protest and everything else.
"I can tell you folks so that there's no misunderstanding today," Sheriff Judd said. "This is a peaceful protest. This is a riot. We can tell the difference. The governor can tell the difference. Our law enforcement officers can tell the difference."
"In the event, you didn't get that, let me show you something. This is peaceful protest, This is looting, Judd said holding up another set of photos. If you loot, the next thing you can try to steal is something off of your food tray at the county jail because you're going to jail, that's a guarantee. And we're going to enjoy taking you down there."
"Some people are "slow learners."
"This is peaceful protest. This is violence. It's not acceptable."
"I truly believe in our God-given right and our constitutional right to speak openly and freely to address our government. That's important. We listen every day. But I've also watched across this country when law enforcement officers who put their life on the line were told to stand down," Judd said at the end of the clip.

It's sad that Sheriff Judd has to go this far to explain the blatantly obvious difference between a legal protest and violent rioting. But if you watch the MSM you'd think this lesson is needed.
