The past few years, there has been a total disconnect. From coast to coast, I’ve seen a small percentage of the population, attacking our police in cities and towns, mass murders, disruptions in schools and colleges, looting and burning of businesses. The list goes on and on. They don’t have to have a good reason, for their civil disobedience, or disruptive and dangerous behavior.
