A police chief in Lowell, Mich. has been forced to resign after making a pro-2nd Amendment post in response to riotous leftist mobs that have targeted the city of Grand Rapids with wanton acts of destruction.
Lowell police chief Steven Bukala resigned this week after publishing a controversial Facebook post that caused the anti-civilizational mob to become enraged.
“So these fine young men called me today. They wanted to exercise their second amendment rights and walk down Main Street,” Bukala wrote in the post, which was accompanied by a picture of four young men with firearms.
“They saw what happened in Grand Rapids. They said its not going to happen here. We have your backs. I thanked them for letting me know they were in town and to call if they see something,” he added.
The Lowell Police Department (LPD) caved to the mob and let it be known in a Facebook post that they will not stand for the 2nd Amendment rights of the people when they need them the most.
“We have made mistakes on social media this week, starting with an ill-considered message posted on the Lowell Police Department Facebook page. We then defended this message, arguing with residents or dismissing their concerns,” the LPD wrote in their post.
“On behalf of the City and the Police Department, we apologize to our community for these mistakes. At a time when residents looked to us for leadership, we failed. We must take this opportunity to listen and learn so we can work together to defeat racism and build a more just and equitable society. We can and must do better,” they added.
Left-wing rioting has cost the city of Grand Rapids at least $300,000 in property damage:
Riot damage to county-owned buildings in downtown Grand Rapids will exceed $300,000, which will come out of the pockets of Kent County taxpayers.
“We have no coverage for this, and the taxpayers are ultimately going to end up eating this,’’ Kent County Commissioner Tom Antor said on Thursday, June 4.
Repair costs will be paid from the county’s general fund, which Administrator Wayman Britt says has been strained by expenses tied to the coronavirus pandemic.
“When you do vandalism, when you do destruction to property – these are things that are not covered under most insurance policies,’’ he said.
Repair costs, he said, “is going to undermine our ability to deliver the services that we’re known for in this community.’’
A county building at 82 Ionia Avenue NW houses circuit court probation, Friend of the Court and the Kent County Prosecutor’s Office.
Damage, Britt said, was widespread.
“There was tremendous damage done to the first floor,’’ he said. “Took out a door. Took out windows. Ransacked the inside of the building. A lot of water damage because sprinkler heads came on. Someone attempted to set fire.’’
A few blocks north, at 180 Ottawa Avenue NW, state-of-the-art glass was shattered at the base of the building.
“It was very expensive because we wanted to make sure that it lasts forever,’’ he said.
The cowards folding to the mob are the type of folks who the Founding Fathers would have tarred and feathered during the revolutionary era.
National Foundation for Gun Rights Pitched in $50K for Kyle Rittenhouse’s Legal Defense
They’re stepping up to the plate.
The National Foundation for Gun Rights (NFGR) announced on September 17, 2020 that they are providing $50,000 of aid to Kyle Rittenhouse, who is facing various criminal charges after he defended himself and business owners from leftist agitators in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
“I spoke with Kyle’s mother this morning to let her know NFGR received over a thousand donations amounting to over $50,000 from folks who support her son,” declared Dudley Brown, Executive Director of the National Foundation for Gun Rights.
Rittenhouse’s mother was thankful about receiving the donation. She stated, “No words can describe what we’re going through. Thank you so much – and I know Kyle and the rest of the family would say thank you too.”
NFGR’s funds will go towards the Kyle Rittenhouse trust fund that is being operated by his attorney, John Pierce. The funds will only be used according to the desires of Kyle Rittenhouse’s mother.
“We want Kyle to have the best defense possible,” remarked Brown. “If he were getting a fair shake from prosecutors, he would be home with his family right now instead of spending weeks in a jail without bail.”
According to video footage taken on the night of August 25th, 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse was fleeing an armed mob who were screaming, “Beat him up!” and “Get that dude!”
“The left is doing everything in their power to portray a 17-year-old kid as the villain,” stated Brown. “We believe Kyle acted legally and defended himself from a dangerous group of armed thugs whose clear intent was to cause permanent harm.”
The National Foundation for Gun Rights plans on continuing to back the Rittenhouse family until Kyle is able to receive justice for simply exercising his sacred right to self-defense.
NFGR is the legal arm of the National Association for Gun Rights. Since its founding in 2000, NAGR has been one of the leading no compromise, Second Amendment organizations in the country.
Unlike most organizations, they’re willing to fight all unconstitutional gun control legislation at the federal and state level. Second Amendment supporters can donate to NAGR and NFGR at the links below:
