I understand both of your point-of-views, because, really, the older generation is damn near burned out by the magnitude and depth of the extreme violence and indifference and disrespect and lack of empathy of many in this generation. At the same time it has been young people, historically that have did the majority of the protesting and demanding and bringing about change.

There also needs to be a revision of the whole "shoot to kill" mentality of police officers .... seeing as how they are supposed to be professionals and firearm "experts."
