My wife and I are so glad we moved out and sold our property in Fayetteville. I experienced 8 years there between the Q Course and my time in 7th Group until we moved to Eglin due to BRAC.

Fayetteville just kept getting worse and worse. I like my home in Texas and the fact that my diverse neighbors take pride in their little piece of the place, and all all armed. Heck, we sometimes go to the range together.

Amen to that! We have been in East TN for one year now.....

As an observation there seems to be a specific demographic where it is important to destroy your own neighborhood, or travel to the neighborhood of those you support in order to assist them in destroying their own neighborhood.

Yup.... indig shitting upstream from their water source and crying that they get sick.

Quoted directly from another forum, it jibes with what I've long suspected about these 'protest' since the occupy wallstreet days.

Quote:
This post has been coming for a while.

I left the Army 5 years ago and invested my entire future in the community where George Floyd was murdered. I joined a company which I, and a much larger team, have grown into a best in class service company since 2015. I employ everyone from native Americans, to muslims, to Ethiopian and Somali immigrants. Come last Friday night all that changed when bands of 20-22 year old white, out of town, Antifa people decided to destroy the whole area and put us out of work. Thankfully one of my employees who lives in the community was brave enough to chase down one of these kids and beat the fire out of them to find that they had no ID on them, a burner phone, and all kinds of phone numbers written all over their arms. In addition, there is an old K-Mart by that area where the "protesters" parked all of their cars. One MPD cop was smart enough to slash the tires of all the cars in the lot. Guess what: 80% of them were rental cars from the Minneapolis airport. So here we go.

I have been on the phone with my employees for the past 5 days hearing about all of this shit and I can't even describe the fear and despair these people are going through. It's worse than anything I ever experienced with was in Iraq and Afghanistan with the US Army Infantry and Special Forces. My people are left to pick up the pieces and figure out how to rebuild this community. Make no mistake: white, liberal, spoiled ass rotten kids did this. To fucking African immigrants and poor people. And now I'll be spending the next few months rebuilding my own business and helping other business owners around me clean up their disasters too.

If you support these protests YOU are part of the problem. YOU are Antifa. MAKE IT STOP NOW! We all have a responsibility.

Interesting that no one is squealing on them. Young white soy-boys whose hands have never had a callus buying pallets of bricks. The same demographic suddenly renting a bunch of cars at the airport. I've heard that they had sympathizers scattered through the civil society including law enforcement and airport personnel. That means that they are scattered amongst us as well.

Looks like they are going to slash the LAPD's budget. Seriously thinking about moving finally, HH6 has agreed. The only problem is that my practice benefits hugely from being in CA, so might have to find a better spot in CA like maybe Orange County or San Diego.

Sorry to hear that, amigo.

I was wondering how long it would take for you to make the move.

Come see us!

Can't believe that. It's already bad enough. South Los Angeles is like a third world country. I don't even like going down there in the daytime but I have to in my employment. I might as well start packing when I do.

No cops so who's going to stop you?

Just remembered, when our son was in high school he and 2 of his friends went to the L.A. Auto Show downtown at the convention center. They left at about 2330 and he got turned around at night. Instead of taking the 110 South he took the 10 East. When he figured out he was going the wrong way he decided to take the 710 South. He was heading for the 405 but when he saw Rosecrans he knew his mom's office was on it so jumped off to head to Manhattan Beach. He called me when they were in the heart of Compton. The two guys with him were hyperventilating, one white and the other 1st gen Mexican-American. He said that it was eerie, no one in sight and no cops anywhere. This was a Saturday night. RIP, son. (Just kidding, but he learned a solid navigation and SA lesson that night.)
