    Maybe during the next robbery at the Red & Black Cafe, the ONE available patrol car will be having coffee in OHIO.

    I've heard of a cop car having a 'flat tire' on the way to a call, haven't' you?

    EXACTLY My "take" BUT that is NOT the response LEOs have the Option to take. They take an OATH to PROTECT ALL, even people like this, regardless of their "personal feelings"

    A personal example - I was a LEO from the mid 60s ++++++. 1 group of people we had to "protect" were the "anti War activists" This was Very Hard for me personally.Not only did they "hate LEOs, but I had served my Co. in the MIL, & was the very"stereotype" they used as "examples". In spite of my personal feelings I did my job. ( I took the Oath & was a proffsional, as were my other Brother LEOs )

    If they have a robbery in progress tell them to call Timothy Leary instead of 911.

    The Red and Black cafe and it's clientel (for the most part) represent those who we are 'up aginst'.

    Hope this business 'goes under', quickly!

    I've often described some of the 'mind-set' I discovered on the left-coast as "left-wing, hippie-larve, coffee culture". This is another example of why.

    From their website:

    We strive to provide a community space that is safe and welcoming to all. We hope this space is used for local voices to bring awareness and education on the issues facing us today. We work to be an example of ethical, non-hierarchal business. The cafe is worker-run and worker-owned. Our space and our community are always growing and changing. We evolve based on the energy, enthusiasm and direction of our fellow workers and our neighborhood in accordance with our ideals.

    Surely nothing wrong with us calling or emailing them about their ousting the police officer.

The world cannot work any other way, at least not in a representative democracy or a republic such as ours.

    Still, the sheepdog disturbs the sheep. He is a constant reminder that there are wolves in the land. They would prefer that he didn't tell them where to go, or give them traffic tickets, or stand at the ready in our airports in camouflage fatigues holding an M-16. The sheep would much rather have the sheepdog cash in his fangs, spray paint himself white, and go, "Baa."

    Until the wolf shows up. Then the entire flock tries desperately to hide behind one lonely sheepdog."

    They do not understand the sheepdog, so they fear it.

    Here is some information to draw a corelation to sheepdogs/LGD's and police and firemen/women


    The sheepdog will assist in the sheep giving birth
    Pyr Assists with Lambing

    This hair-breed sheep is about to give birth to a lamb. She lies down to push until she feels the lamb's feet clear the birth canal - (two yellow objects under her tail.)
    Then she stands, and the Pyr begins to clear the membrane from the lamb's head before the rest of its body has cleared the ewe. Since even a ewe in labor is capable of running off, it is obvious that this ewe is quite comfortable about the dog's help.

    The lamb is on the ground, and both dog and ewe cooperate to clean it off. In the last photo, a well-cleaned lamb raises its head for a first look at the world.

    For the Pictures see the web-link here
    lambing

    The Livestock guardian dogs will often-times give their life for those they love and protect.
    Sounds alot like most of our police, fire and military. Some dumbells just don't get it

    Have you ever noticed how nothing is impossible for those who don't have to do it?

    What goes around, comes around.


    The irony is, that if there was an emergency there, they would be the first ones to lynch the police, for not being there fast enough to prevent the problem.

    I was looking for a photo of this guy, and while looking over some of the articles they are getting a severe public bashing, even by some of their alledged customers.

    I never could find the photo, though I have a pretty good mental image.

    When in uniform it is wise to know not only the sentiment of the management but who the primary clientel are at any place that you seek intake.

    Ya know... If I were a criminal and I read that article... Well, I'm not a criminal so I'll just let it go at that.

    This could be some great marketing for a competing business.


    I know a couple of the shops I go to give the officers free coffee. I always thought it was a great thing. Even the diner I go to, the wait staff is always more than happy to server the local officers.


    And if I owned such a business, I'd serve anyone who came in whether I agreed with their beliefs or not. As long as they weren't causing a disturbance I'd hope they would enjoy their coffee and come back for more.
