Surviving a Riot
While Pat and I were driving home from
dinner last night, we observed a large number of SAPD units,
in a big hurry to be somewhere. As we proceeded
south, through the downtown area, we watched as the cops were
blocking exit ramps along our I-37 route.

of Mr. Floyd, in Minneapolis, it didn't take a detective to figure
out SAPD was probably diverting traffic away from a downtown riot scene.
Since excitement over Covid-19 was wearing thin, in the San Antonio
area, it looked like the Dynamic Duo of Ron & Nelson were going to
get another bite of the fame-apple, with a good ol' down home race

a riot, right here in your own back yard?
One of my favorite writers has some ideas from the perspective of an
active duty law enforcement officer. See what you think:
