@RoArquette I'm retired police officer. The police that AREN'T racist, are the majority of police officers in the United States, and are busy doing their jobs lawfully, with integrity, and without passion or prejudice. There are literally on average 240 million 911 calls answered each year
@RoArquette and those videos you see about police officers violating their oaths, use of excessive force, violating policies, and laws are the exception, not the rule. In my state alone recently, there have been many examples on video of the heroism, community service, law use of force that
@RoArquette have not been share, gone viral by those perpetuating the narrative that all police are racist, or complicit with racism and abuse of their authority. I personally called out and stopped white and BLACĶ officers who were either actively abusing their authority, violating search
@RoArquette and seizure laws, etc. In the use of force category, there were cases in Georgia that showed video of a "routine traffic stop" going awry and ending with the occupant opening fire on 3 police officers who were injured, and that video didn't show that example. Another routine
@RoArquette resulted in a police officer narrowly missing losing his life when the driver concealed his movements to use his right hand to shoot through a window, who was wanted and dangerous. There are over 350 million guns in the hands of criminals and law abiding citizens alike. Police
@RoArquette have to use caution in every citizen encounter to prepare for the possibility those routine encouters may end up deadly for the public and officer. Compared to 240 million 911 calls there is a false narrative that every police officer is racist, socio pathic or psychotic.

Just went through my employer's open enrollment for healthcare, and I learned a few things I'll pass on. An employer if they have over 50 employees is required to offer "affordable" healthcare with a "minimum value" (bronze like coverage or better). Affordable means the premiums
can't be higher than 9.83% of an employee's income. My income is in the 28k-30k range. Therefore my maximum MONTHLY premiums my employer offers shouldn't be higher than $230-$246 a month. We were given 8 days to decide on the plans offered. Our plans would have $200ish deducted
each paycheck. The employer contribution was in the $140 range. I started googling articles about this, and workers are in no way obligated to take the employer insurance if it's neither "affordable" nor has "minimum value", and can sign up for the healthcare marketplace
