  1. This so called protest is starting to get out of hand and other people and their property are getting damaged.Police “JPD, CCSD,& ASP” need so stop being cowards and stop this before it gets worse.

  2. In the police report it says that John Bosze was yelling racial slurs at the protesters looks like his windows were up to me anyone notice this?Why wasn’t the black guy that tried to attack his moving suv and damaged it arrested, maybe John has his family with him and he was trying to protect.It’s not against the law to carry a firearm and to show it unless your a felon.
