  3. Looking at response of looting and unrest has my spirit heavy and sad. I just can't comprehend. The POTUS is ineffective. I am disappointed in him.

    Certainly, it is disappointing to see the grand jury to refuse to grant an indictment when indictments can come so easily. Also, there is no excuse for police excessive force. I disagree with harming innocent property, but I do believe that we have to look at the underlining causes of a riot not just condemning unjust violence.
