What did I think of it? Entertaining and disturbing. Those are two words that Sound of Freedom call to mind.
Another word that now comes to mind is QAnon.

At 2 a.m. on Saturday, August 26th 2023, Nicholas Anthony Donofrio, age 20, a University of South Carolina student, was shot dead. He was found on the front porch of a house down the road from his own residence.
Authorities speculated that Donofrio mistakenly went to the wrong home and attempted to enter. The homeowner called the police to report a burglary attempt. When Donofrio continued to attempt to gain entry, someone in the home apparently shot him, and a second call was made to the police reporting the shots fired.

Craig Robertson was a very, very dangerous man. Really. Why? He posted online threats against Joe Biden and other government officials. He also owned guns. And a ghillie suit.
The FBI was afraid that Robertson would put on his ghillie suit, slip out of his house, travel 30 miles unseen on urban streets to where Joe Biden was speaking, and sneak up unnoticed in his ghillie suit on the president’s security entourage to carry out his oh-so credible threats.

Are cops perfect? Of course not. And no one should expect them to be. But every single day, under the most difficult conditions, the police protect us from the bad guys. In other words, they do their job and they do it well. Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke makes it very clear: cops are not the problem.
The excellent PragerU video linked below describes exactly how I feel about law enforcement, and about the villains that vilify the men and women that put their lives on the line for us day in and day out.

“All he had was a cellphone,” said 10-year-old Terrell Wilson to the Sacramento City Council. “20 shots over a cellphone.”
If only it were that simple, then the outrage over the killing of Stephon Clark could be justified.
But, as usual when Black Lives Matter, it simply isn’t that simple.

They were the bitterest of enemies. For more than a decade, on the streets of Milwaukee, two men shared a mutual disgust. One was a hardnosed cop named Ray Robakowski…. The other was a drug dealer and gang-banger named Jacob Maclin. Jacob got arrested so many times you can watch him grow old in his mugshots. And it was that career thug — and Ray the officer — who sat down one day over a cup of coffee. The district attorney’s office arranged it. The meeting was to see if cop and criminal could work together and come up with a way to get out of this vicious cycle. But neither guy was buying it. Ray only showed up because his boss made him come. And Jacob was tricked into coming, told he had a job interview. So they basically just glared at each other the entire time. Ray thought Jacob was sure to screw up and wind up behind bars. But eventually, over the next couple months, Jacob proved to Ray that he wanted to get a job and turn his life around….
