Nobody should protest at people's houses. Why should somebody's kids or pets have to endure that? What did they do?

Here's the mayor of Oakland's house:

Don't want the job, don't play the game!

Jackie Lacie isn't a neophyte to be pitied, she's an arm of the law - a powerful arm.

That's cute ! My youngest sister's neighborhood sets up little social distancing scavenger hunts where kids walk by and write down that they saw a dragon or bear or whatever. Some neighbors even set up math problems in their yards for remote learning. It's all so wholesome and a 'it takes a village' sort of idea.

What's that got to do with threats and protesting at somebody's house?

Perhaps the community sentiment is that if you bought the house with tax dollars paid to you, that you could stand to answer to the public—at your house.

Seems like they tried through all the normal channels to have conversation with her but failed. People do protest; it’s not up to us to always place limits on how or where.

People have vandalized public buildings. That’s “OK” overall despite being owned by citizen-controlled governments, but a private house is curiously off limits? This is the same whining the Seattle police chief did. Make yourself available, talk, work it out, have something persuasive to say that isn’t your freaking husband pointing a gun out the door and then literally crying about later, as Lacey did.

Of all the transgressions this person has done, in context some paint on her house doesn’t rise to the level of outrage here.

They didn't buy the house with tax dollars. They got paid to do a job. They earned their money. There is zero obligation to anyone regarding what I earn via my sweat.

If the politician isn't making themselves available on demand, you have an option. Don't vote for them. Vote for somebody you like. That's how it works.

It doesn't rise the level of anything because it's not "our" families that are being unfairly included. It's somebody else's. That's how it's been working. If it's not affecting "me," then who cares?

The guy apparently felt threatened. Get off of my property means get off of my property.

So you're in the camp of property rights are greater than human rights? Something like "pay me my rent" or else go homeless? No middle ground?

Why does property have to be involved in a protest at all? You're just making excuses for lawlessness. If you're kid was the dog-catcher and 5 hundred people descended on your house, how is that fair to you?

That's just some white @#$%& too. White people (with some token Black people) using BLM to push their agenda.

We just buried 2 great men that showed the world how to effectively demonstrate. They changed the world. That's the model. BLM is generally peaceful. The white people riding their tail are the destructive people. Then they want to say "hey, people over property."

These white people don't do anything for people. They just sit around and wait for some entity to do something productive and positive so that they can glomm all over it while paying lip service towards Black people's needs.

That's my ground.

Regardless of the race of the protesters, the man did not have to brandish a gun in the face of a civil protest. He did and as the spouse of an elite will likely never suffer any sort of real penalty - other than taking down his wife's career, a career that no one out side the Lacy family will feel at a loss about.
