Very unfortunate situation!! Keep up the good work officers, you guys (and women) are dealing with some very difficult circumstances. Stay safe!!

Great restraint showed by the officers. In Texas we have a State Law on rioting and inticing a riot. Once the peaceful protest turns violent, everyone goes to jail. We bring in the buses and make mass arrests. In this case we would have arrested everyone out there once shots were fired. Y'all are just too nice up there. Stay Safe Blue!

Restraint is good until they start firing guns at you. The problem is that it is dark and they are cowards just shooting every which way. Glad no officers were hurt or any civilians. Stay safe brothers and sisters.

IN GILROY, CA We recognize this as a threat to public safety, and a threat to our Officers sworn to keep the peace. Blessed are the Peace Makers (you) We continually pray for your families and Officers (peace of mind, stress and confidence in purpose). We honor you and yours, who stand in front, protecting our homes and our children from uneducated fools who are willing participants in riots for a bite of bread. Shame on them. The Lord will uphold you with His Righteous Right Hand.
